My Stop at Sri Aman

(People who were with us on the road trip)

As we drove to Sibu, we were excited to stop by Sri Aman. As far as I am concerned, I have been to Sri Aman twice (including this recent trip). I made a phone call to Mr Desmond Jerukan to bring him out for a drink but unfortunately, he was away to Niah, Miri. From my observation, Sri Aman is developing very fast but a bit crowded like my hometown, Serian. The crowd I saw there was probably due to Gawai Dayak celebration.

If in Serian, I heard people talking in Bidayuh language, but in Sri Aman, not only the local speak Iban language, the Chinese can also speak the language. Since I myself is an Iban, I really felt at home though I was in a foreign land. I ate at one of the Chinese shops there but a bit surprised to discover that the Chicken rice food I ordered was not accompanied by a bowl of chicken soup. In Kuching, chicken rice food is always accompanied by a bowl of chicken soup.

As I walked by the river, I saw a beautiful man-made waterfront. I was told that the waterfront is new. I think it is high time that Sri Aman to be developed into an interesting tourist destination, especially when they have "pesta Benak".
