Blue / Butterfly Pea Flower

Annie’s extended family on her father’s side is from George Town, Penang, and every time we’ve gone to visit, we stayed with family. Usually, that meant staying with Annie’s godparents, her uncle and aunt. They are such hospitable and kind folks, and we always loved spending time with them.

Staying at their place is pretty cool because it’s in a relatively quiet neighborhood, but with quick access to some main roads if we want to go somewhere. We could be sitting at home, chatting (usually about where we want to go eat) and the next minute be on our way out for some assam laksa, char kway teow, or nasi kandar.

The neighborhood itself is very walkable. Many times I just take my camera and go wandering off in one direction, looking for neat stuff to snap. It was on one of these jaunts that I came upon a fence that was completely covered in this dense vine, bearing these incredibly blue flowers:

Sarikei Town: Sights and Sounds

Sarikei Pineapple

Sarikei Pineapple

Many cities and towns in Sarawak have a large statue of something that that place is famous for. In Serian, it’s the durian. In Sarikei, it’s the pineapple.

Can you guess what Kuching’s statue is? Leave a comment!

We spent a few days over this past Gawai Dayak holidays with our friends in their hometown of Sarikei. Getting there was quite a journey, but that doesn’t compare to the experiences we had in and around this town on the central coast of Sarawak. Here are some of the things I captured on my camera from around Sarikei.
