Walking around the Sarawak Museum Garden

View of the Sarawak Museum from the garden located at the back of the building.
The Sarawak Museum is an institution in Sarawak.  Ask anyone who has gone to Kuching if ever he or she has gone to see the museum. If the answer is in the negative, it means that his or her  visit is not yet complete.
Built in 1891 by Sir Charles Brooke, the White Rajah of Sarawak it was initially meant to house the handicrafts and stuffed exhibits of the rich wildlife of Sarawak.
Today it a famous tourist destination in Kuching city. Many other attractions are added lately to make the visit longer and more memorable in terms of learning the history, culture, anthropology and natural resources of Sarawak.
This is a LS view of the cascading fountain at the museum's garden.
Both sides of the water cascade are lined with  a small collection of the official flower of Malaysia i.e. the Hibiscus  sometimes commonly known as the shoe flower ( Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) which I managed to take a few shots of them in full bloom and in various colours.
Finally, before leaving the grounds I came across this group of statues located at the entrance to the aquarium.
"Now, let me guess?"

It looks like a wonderful place to visit ... The only place I've visited in the northern Borneo is Brunei (we drove to the Brunei-Malaysian border, but did not cross it). Would love to visit Kucing and Sarawak someday.
