Visit Malaysia Year Haiku - Bintangor (State Of Sarawak) - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

bintang, binatang or bintangor
the town never gets its rightful name
'limau manis' - sweet oranges

Bintangor in Sarawak has been called many names. First it was Binatang, the malay word for animals, then Bintang which means 'star' afer which it was renamed Bintangor, a promising trees which have anti aids virus medicinal value. However, the town known for so many names is best known for the sweet oranges in the State of Sarawak. Tan Sri Ting Pek King, a well known tycoon was a native of this town. He morphed from a farmer to a building contractor and now a tycoon.
