Idyllic Kuching

The Idyllic Astana
At the Kuching waterfront yesterday I noticed the idyllic Astana which is home to the Governor of Sarawak. In Malay the proper term to call the Governor is ' Tuan Yang Di Pertua Negeri '.
The still waters of the Sarawak River that meanders by it makes an excellent post card view.

These deep sea fishing trawlers are having a rest. Wait. You mean just opposite the residency?
Yes, they are berthed for many weeks here due to the dangerously high seas and the north easterly winds that have no mercy on small fishing vessels when they bash the coastal regions of Sarawak during the rainy monsoon season ( November to February) yearly.
