Miri City - "The Oil Town"

I have got a lot of people asking me about any special places in Miri City (in Sarawak, Malaysia or also called as West Borneo). Some of the places in Miri can be found in other websites, such as the Mulu Cave, Mulu National Park, Niah Cave, Lambir National Park, Bario Highland, and Loagan Bunut National Park.

So, I would like to add some other places which is a must-visit place, which located on the Kanada Hill, Miri, Sarawak (don't know how they got the Kanada name).

1. Grand Old Lady - The First Well
This is a very historical place for Malaysia, because it is the First Well drilled in 10th August 1910. Drilled by Shell, big oil company which still remain in Sarawak as Sarawak Shell Berhad.

2. Time Capsul (in Malay: Kapsul Masa)
The Time Capsul was launched on the 20th May 2005. It contained the "Book Of Miri City Officialisation" ("Buku Cenderamata Perayaan Pengisytiharan Bandaraya Miri") which will be opened on the 20th May 2105 (100 years later after the launch).

**Writer & his kids.

So, since this year is the VISIT MALAYSIA YEAR 2007, don't miss your chance...
