My thoughts of Kuching
Kuching is a really clean, peaceful and green place. The nature is greatly preserved and there's a hint of warmth called home. It is different from the hustle bustle city of Kuala Lumpur. Since Sarawak was once ruled by the Britains, the architectural style of the building was heavily influenced by it, which makes me feel like I'm in a Western country.

The people here are the true definition of Malaysians. They are really warm and friendly towards others, so much that I felt a little embarrass to be called a Malaysian.

Kuching is definitely a place that I would recommend anyone to visit as the culture and nature is very much preserved and loved by the locals themselves.

Till next time.
