The Kenyalang Statue stands proudly at the BDC Roundabout
After reading Uchukeling's blog about the Prime Minister's visit to Miri, I have to admire our Prime Minister's ability to withstand the tight travelling schedule. Right after the end of the United Malay National Union's Assembly on the 9th November 2007, he hopped over to Sabah to attend the Parti Bersatu Sabah's meeting and also Liberal Democratic Party's meeting and then proceeded to Miri on 12th November 2007. Taking into account that he is not as young as I am and for someone my age attending one function is enough to drain me out.
Which is why I will never be able to see myself as (1) a Prime Minister or anything associated with travelling and giving speeches (b) An Angkasawan as no amount of pressure will make me go into a space capsule. But there is nothing wrong in setting high standards for oneself. Not too high lah... if some people want to climb Mount Everest, I'll settle for Mount Kinabalu. So it also means I won't be able get to be (c) Tan Sri Datuk Paduka (Dr) Ting Phek Kiing. He can complete an Interchange in less than one and half years while it takes years for me to clean by room! Which is why the leaders were so full of praise for him in their speeches.
The Four Points by Sheraton Hotel will be just 5 minutes away from the Airport and 10 minutes from my house in BDC. I am thinking of switching jobs already! Why not? Hmmmm....
After that there was a mini show of maps and development models of Sarawak's Central Corridor Development - future Global Upline projects in the offing? If he can do it in 12 months why not?
Video on the launching of the Kenyalang Interchange - sometimes its much more better to focus on simple launching gimmicks. One too many gimmicks can be distracting. Some think its the balloon first while the Prime Minister was focusing so much on the screen
I must say bravo to Global Upline again. At least you got the Kenyalang to fly again - it rhymes with thier company's motto:
We Can! Its very inspiring! So Tan Sri Ting - got any vacancy for me ah? I also can mah :)
Correction, PM flew back to KL from Sabah, and fly in to Miri on Monday afternoon.
I guess it will still be called BDC Flyover for quite sumtime..
But then again.. Kenyalang Interchange brings out the uniqueness of Sarawak.
Anyway, i though this interchange was opened earlier... or maybe that was the soft opening? Im not sure.
If the Agong's gonna do it, then we will certainly term it as The Royal Salute!
