Shopping at Serikin
I was all set to buy the tikar Sarawak when Mike told me that I can get a good price in Serikin.. which is about 45 minutes drive from Kuching.. Serikin is located at the border of Indonesia.. which is quite a famous place in Sarawak to buy cheap stuff.. equivalent to Pengkalan Kubur and Bukit Kayu Hitam here..We arrived late, at 11am.. and there were lots of people filling up the place.. school holidays, remember? Somehow, the weather was so hot during this time so everybody either got themselves an umbrella each or a cap.. and we were all covered with sweat.. Varieties of Tikar Sarawak to choose from.. with so many different designs and colors.. and here's my final pick and Susan, Mike and Azyy posing under the shades running from the hot sun.. One of the Rumah Tumpangan here.. Crafts from rattans.. and from shells.. and when we're done shopping, we ended up carrying tikar sarawak that's been packed nicely for shipping.. and here's how the carrying was done.. heheh!and we headed back safely to Kuching.. Another meeting with Shirley and hubby after this..
