tHe Spring Live Active Run 2014
In 2012, tHe Spring Shopping Mall organized Kuching's first large-scale outdoor running event in over a decade, attracting over 1,600 participants who competed in a 2lkm Half-marathon, lOkm Run and 5km Fun Run. That event was called tHe Spring Live Active Run, and it also raised RM50,000 for the Cahaya Kidney Dialysis Center. Upon receiving positive responses, the 2nd Live Active Run returned in 2013 with participants from 16 different countries which doubled in its number and raised over RM60,000 for charity.
My River – My town
Kuching was built along the ‘main road’ of Sarawak River, a substantial waterway that is still the focus of the old town. Today, an elegantly landscaped esplanade park lines the riverside. 150 years ago it looked rather different: a muddy riverbank opposite the Main Bazaar where junks, perahus and schooners tied up. Sweating coolies carried goods on and off board, balancing on rickety gangplanks.
Forts of Sarawak
Sarawak, Malaysia’s largest state, has been under a number of administrative periods which are unique in the history of the state and also for generations to come. After Sarawak was handed over to James Brooke by the Sultanate of Brunei in 1839, it was the beginning of an era of foreign administrative rule which was often referred to as the rule of the White Rajah of Sarawak.
