Recently, the extension of the third phase of the S1bu Lake Garden had completed with a very beautiful Cultural Food Pavilion or Court accompanied by a "Melanau" hat style structure pavilion (with semi-glass roofing) with multi-purpose Stage on the ground floor and upper floor is watching tower/platform and water pontoon for water activities. This Food Court can accommodate a few hundred people at any one time. It's going to be a hit with the sibu people and another landmark for S1BU.

One very huge Vessel or boat was built in front of one Chinese Temple ( "Par Wan Kong") along Jalan Deshon, Sibu. It's really huge with the length spanning about 72 feet. It 's the vessel or boat built for the ritual in the celebration of "Yu Lan Hui" which will be used to transport of all the homeless "Ghost"to neverland or whatever?? . The boat supposed to be made of paper but this time , the temple organiser are using plywood to construct it. This vessel/boat will be burned on the actual day of the celebration i.e on 24th August 2010 or the Chinese calender 15th of the 7th month. Guess, it must be a pretty " hot" sight during the burning. According to the organisers, the construction of this boat was also to rise fund for the construction of the Temple which they are short of 500K. They said anyone can buy a share of the Boat costing about RM 10.00/share. Anytakers?
I think it's the biggest Vessel or Boat, ever built in S1BU for the Rituals. The biggest in Sarawak . A S1BU Boleh!!

This is a Malaysian Book of Record (unofficial) and another S1BU boleh!! The Organisers said that this will be made an annual event and the next one will be better.(What's about creating a Guinness Book of Record ?)
For those Chinese educated, you might be wondering why the back drop of the launching ceremony mentioned is the launching of the 1st Borneo Lantern Festival and from the start, why I don't mention it's the 1st Borneo lantern Festival ? Well, felt that it would be better if it is call the 1st Sibu Lantern Festival but ........I think "Borneo" more marketable.
