Visit Malaysia Year Haiku - Sibu Chinese New Year - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

in all the quietness
the beauty of Sibu
Chinese New Year

dusk at the Rejang
all my God, my camera cannot
hold all its beauty

borneo hometown walkabout
a haiku poet finds
his dream

old harbour
a few anglers at
the broken down piers

where most of us were born
where a british governor was killed
dataran sibu

(the lau king howe hospital was demolished to make way
for the dataran years back. most of the sibu people and
outlying areas were born at this first general hospital part of which was over the Igan River.
