The first confrontation with the cat statue (for most people) was the huge and majestic white cat. This cat stood right in the centre in front of one of the huge roundabouts in Kuching, next to the beautiful Chinese gate of the city. That was a favourite spot for picture shooting for tourists/visitors to Kuching. Hey, I took one snapshot in front of the huge cat long long time ago, together with a friend of mine, in 1991 (went there for prize ceremony) whereby the cat statue was just newly built... It's just a simple statue at that time.. Yeah, the cat statue was there for more than a decade already.
I took these shots from my sister's car. (I was not driving btw and I took these snapshots while my sister made a turn on the huge roundabout next to the huge gigantic cat statue. U can see the side mirror of the car on the second picture).
There are several other cat statues available. One of them are located nearby the Crowne Plaza Riverside Hotel, just opposite the traffic light. Hahha, can see the McD signboard on the building behind the cat statue.
Another cat statue in town. This picture is dark cos the sky was cloudy and it's going to rain soon, when I took the snapshot (from the moving vehicle as well).
Dewan Bandaraya Kuching Selatan (DBKS).
So, in conclusion, u can find cat statue everywhere in Kuching?? (No lah, this is not true :P But u can indeed find lotsa cat statues in Kuching, but not everywhere...)
This photo is taken in a tea kiosk not far away from the famous Sarawak Museum. (I will post on Sarawak Museum later on). It's sweet the see the kittens hugging each other while sleeping :) Didn't see many "live" cats wandering around in Kuching though :P (Well, Kuching is a very CLEAN city.. )
And not forgetting the One and Only famous Cat Museum, which is located in the North City Hall in Kuching. Even Garfield and Felix the Cat is featured in this unique museum as well :) I didn't go inside this museum, so no picture. Might be I will do so during my next trip back home.
And... last but not least,
Happy Birthday to Carcar.This post is specially dedicated to u, on your birthday :)
