Burger Kukus Ngap Sayotters

I bet, not all of you in Miri knows about the existence of this Burger kukus right? Owned buy 3 Malay guys, they started this business i think around October if i am not mistaken. one of them is my schoolmate. we all called him Midon. well now that he had this burger business, he called himself McDon. =)

Why burger kukus? am not sure. I never interviewed them personally. lol.. all I know that these burger cooked without butter or oil... I guess, it should be healthy right? something new is it not?

the Menu? hmm.. basically they have similar menu like any other burger stall. things that made they different a bit from others, is how they prepared the burger and the sauce. you have to go there to see it for yourself.

I personally like the home made beef burger... cost me around RM5.50 without cheese. next on my list would be the home made chicken burger..

well they also offer Ramly beef and chicken burger tho. Hotdog burger as well...

oh ya.. almost forgot. they located nea…

Calling for Volunteers for RWMF 2014, Borneo Jazz 2014 and Asia Music Festival 2014

by RihanNa (bukan Nama Sebenar)

Registration is now open for the Rainforest World Music Festival, Borneo Jazz and Asia Music Festival 2014 volunteer programme.

I am sure a lot of people are anxiously waiting for these 3 great events every year. Some may want to be part of it and some may just want to enjoy the great music that every year STB bring us for.

I myself could not help to be in the Borneo Jazz 2014 and Asia Music Festival. Of course  part of the reason why only these two is because it is in Miri where I work and live.

For those of you who are interested to be music instruments shleppers or liaison officer for the performing artist can just register respectively on RWMF website at RWMF2014, Borneo Jazz website BJF2014 and Asia Music Festival Website AMF2014. This is only the application process where those interested in taking part are registered, while the successful applicants will later be notified via email or telephone.

Did you guys know that Sarawak Tourism Board is looking for aspiring art designers

among the public to help create the look for the Rainforest World Music Festival and

Borneo Jazz?

The winning design will be used to re-brand the 2014 festivals in

promotional materials. Which is cool right? All the promo material will use the winning design,

which will be used as promotional materials. What STB really looking for is to refresh the whole thing.

It means they want a  new interpretation for RWMF and Borneo Jazz. the current artwork has been used for the past 3 years anyway. It is now time for something new. Agree?

"The design competition provides the opportunity to excite and challenge not only

professional art & design communities but also members of the public (amateur

or students) to showcase their talent and to win attractive prizes from the festival

organiser, Sarawak Tourism Board."

Any entries can be made in group or individual. Whoever hav…

by RihanNa (bukan Nama Sebenar)

This would be my second trip to Indonesia. it was short. it was sweet. nothing more can describe the Business trip i had for 8 days in these two area of Indonesia.i have met few people that left very sweet moments in my heart.i didnt even have time to talk about my first trip. but it was so-so. the only part i enjoy is when i was in Bandung. you know right?it is shopping time.. =)

Anyway, being first time to Balikpapan, my first impression was like.... it is a very big city and clean. altho the Airport or what they called Bandara is a bit small but, the experience being there that count. Agree? i traveled from Miri at 6.20am and only arrive at Balikpapan that day at 8pm something. yeah. a very tiring trip i can say. but when Mbak Sophia from ELC greeted me at the arrival, I was happy to finally  talk to someone. my mouth felt

the next day, i have to travel from Balikpapan to Samarinda by road. i know right. it took me 3 hours journey. and the…

On 5th Oct 2013, STB were expecting people to come and fill up the Eastwood Floating stage. its 4 o Clock and we yet to see crowds gather. there were only few people standing and sitting at the tables provided. Well, at least most of the table are filled.
The first performer of the day was the Mountain Band. Consist of 5 Kelabit members, this band really put me in country mood. the even sang 1 or 2 kelabit song that day. and i remember Ozzy and Datu Rashid Khan danced Poco2 while they are performing. Their music is that fun.

Melissa Francis come next. To be honest, I never listen to MF songs. I listen to iban/dayak songs but not hers. But she is that good. I can put her at the same standard as Jaclyn Victor and Alyah. really. she sang most Iban song that day.And her only Malay song is 'Hujan'. i love that song. and another song that became my fav is Perening. Perening means 'look'/ look at me. i was amazed with these 2 songs. i didnt kno…
