Places that make us happy

We all have a happy place… one that brings us joy and helps us forget about everything else, and one that lifts our spirits and carves a smile on our face whenever we’re feeling down. That happy place may be the sea or the shopping mall. Wherever they may be, these places will surely make us happy whenever we visit them.

The beach

All beachgoers agree that the beach is where they can be happy and carefree. We get fuzzies in our hearts when we think about getting saltwater in our hair and sand between our toes. Just the sound of rushing waves can instantly melt all those worries away.

Looking for new beaches to #RaonRaonSarawak to? The stretch of golden sandy beach outside Roxy Hotel, Sematan will be a treat for those living nearby. Meanwhile, Mirians might want to check out the picturesque Bungai Beach, located 50km away from the city.

Karaoke centres

It doesn’t matter if you’re not the best singer in the world. No one will judge you at a karaoke centre! Karaoke brings so much happiness because you get to sing until the cows come home and no one will come knocking at your door, telling you that you’re being too loud. Plus the intimate setting of the individual rooms at a karaoke centre is just perfect for you sing your heart out, with a group of people you are comfortable with.

And here’s news that will definitely make you happy after months of not being able to enjoy “karaokeing” due to COVID-19: Karaoke centres (rooms only) in Sarawak have been allowed to open to public from August 15th, 2020, with a set of Standard of Procedures (SOP) approved by The Ministry of Local Government and Housing as well as Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC). 

Hence, if you have been itching for a karaoke session, head on over to your nearest karaoke centres such as K11 or Rock’n’Roll Karaoke.


Water theme parks

Have you ever noticed that kids would start bawling their eyes out the moment their parents indicate that time at the waterpark is up? This is because kids know what is fun and how to be happy, and that is getting splashed from head to toe. Because honestly, who wouldn’t be happy sliding down a high-water slide on a rubber ring?

Residents in Kuching who are wishing for some fun time at the water park can check out Borneo Samariang Water Park. This water park is currently closed due to the COVID-19 situtation. But you can check out their Facebook page for updates (CLICK HERE) on when they’ll reopen.

Shopping mall

The sea

You know those people who just can’t wait to go back out to sea once they return to shore? The vast ocean might be a scary, unknown realm, but it is a happy place for these sea addicts, who are mostly recreational anglers and fishermen. They find both peace and adventure in unchartered waters and satisfaction in reeling in their catch of the day.

If the sea is your happy place, you’ll definitely enjoy deep sea fishing in Miri. Check out Reeling in Miri (CLICK HERE) for more information.
