One of the most famous and popular landmarks in Kuching City has to be the Sunday Market.This open air market place located at Jalan Satok.This is most congested,lively and fascinating market place on every weekend.
The Sunday Market started out as a place to buy jungle produce from the farmers from the hinterland of Kuching city, mostly from Bau, Lundu, Padawan and Serian. Farmers from the surrounding area would take buses or hitch rides, and start to congregate at the market as early as Saturday morning, and begin trading at noon time.

Here the city folk have been able to enjoy a wide array of shoes.slipper etc.etc at very competitive prices. The goods are cheap, and a shopping trip to the market will not burn a hole in your pocket.
Many Kuching people have become addicted to visiting the market every weekend. It is an occasion for a family outing, as strolling along the congested street market, and examining the goods on sale has become a very pleasant day out for city folk.
Pastries from chinese and malay stall.
You can easily find fresh local organic vegetable,chili etc.etc..
Item sold at Sunday Market..You can also buy a puppy, kitten, hamster or rabbit. All sorts of animals are offered on sale in small cages
While photographing I also buy Putu Mayang......
All in all, the Satok Sunday Market is still one of my favourite places in Kuching city. I have heard rumours of the authorities trying to relocate the market elsewhere, but I am sure this would be an unpopular proposition for Kuching folk. Let us face it, we are all lifelong fans of our grand Sunday Market — a regular feature of public life in Kuching city.The will be relocated HERE.

“Police Officers - Should there be more police officers in our streets? Every day I see small offences being committed (driving with a mobile phone in hand, bike riders on the pavement, youths drinking in ‘non drinking zones’, etc) but there is no one of power there to prevent or stop this from happening?

I love it. It's definitely the best coffee in Kuching.
As a recent coffee drinker, I wonder if these coffee is actually from Sarawak as it tasted so fine that even ****bucks blends could not have compared to the freshly brewed coffee out of the expreso machine into a glass filled with just ice alone. I love this simply marvelous .
There are two types of coffee beans, Liberica beans and Robusta beans. It’s planted in the mountainous area of Sarawak next to fruit trees and under the coconut trees. Most importantly, they are pesticide free!.The owner ensure that the coffee beans are fresh so that you will get the freshest coffee daily. you can also buy the coffee beans or powder to have your very own Sarawak gourmet coffee at home.

Firefly has leased two Boeing 737-400 planes, and these will be positioned at Senai Airport. It is not known if any of the Boeing 737-800 planes ordered by the airline will be joining the fleet of Boeing 737-400 jets at Senai Airport.
It is understood, however, that Firefly is leasing the two planes on a short-term basis. Sources said subject to traffic rights approval, Firefly aims to operate the jets from Senai by the first quarter of 2011 and is eyeing routes such as Bangkok, Jakarta, Bandung, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu
"There is also great potential for other international airports like those in Kuching, Kota Kinabalu and Penang to serve as subsequent hubs for Firefly jets," one source said.
Making Senai Airport a hub may also help spur the airport and the Iskandar Malaysia region.
The airport, meanwhile, can expect to be infused with a new lease of life, following many repeated attempts by other airlines which had previously introduced international and domestic flights.These efforts had not taken off, resulting in an under capacity at the airport, which has recently been upgraded with a first of its kind Aeromall.The airport is currently served by Malaysian Airline,Fireflyz and AirAsia.

Firefly said: Firefly starts a new chapter in its expansion plan with a new hub in Johor Bahru.The new routes is from Johor Bahru to Kota Kinabalu and Kuching.

The new exterior look, the new owner should consider retrofitting the seats, by just replacing the Business Class seats with normal Economy seats. Through this option, the Boeing 737-400 will have slightly more capacity at the same time retaining the luxurious seat-pitch it currently have.The new hub "The Sultan Ismail Airport" Johor Bahru is the first step to make it the site for Firefly continues to expand, especially in the next plan to introduce new international routes flying from Johor Bahru to Jakarta , Surabaya and Bandung . Obviously "orange power" Firefly is now more advanced and faster after the successful invasion of the blue cloud of direct flights of Boeing 737-800 aircraft from their new route to KLIA to Kuching and Kota Kinabalu since January 15, 2011.
Tip from me: All low cost carrier in Malaysia is a perfectly good airline to fly if you book early, don't carry much luggage, have no special requirements, and you are certain that nothing will arise that will require you to engage with any aspect of the airline's "customer service". .
