New World Suites Hotel Bintulu


Business Class hotel...right smack dead in the middle of Bintulu's biggest mall (at the time of writing this blog)...cant go wrong staying here. :)

UPDATED - 27 October 2011

I have nothing else to say but this is a First Class Hotel. Great Service and I absolutely enjoyed their Royal Suite which has a nice jacuzzi, bar, living and working area. The toilet is truly a throne for a king (see picture). The master room...truly heaven!

I have checked out the price rate (Jul 2011) is RM100 nett for double bed which is located on 1st Floor and RM90nett for twin located on 2nd floor. Take note no lift in this hotel ahhhh...so make sure got potter to carry it. No breakfast here coz no restaurant...nearby got lots of makanshop so no worry loh... :)
Call to make a booking : 086 332166

UPDATED - 27 October 2011
Recently this hotel upgraded their rooms so I thought why not go for a visit. However the receptionist was not very hospitable. When I asked to have a look at the room, he said look at the photographs. There was another chinese guy laying on his lazy chair watching tv. All happening at the reception area. Totally unproffesional.

Long House Bintulu



The left picture shows you the left side of the long house and the right picture shows the right side. All together 82 houses longgggggggggg... you can barely see the end of the last house and I was standing in the middle. I was visiting this house during Gawai celebration. The house owner served us some malay cookies (see below) called kueh penganan or kueh jala, kuehcap. The one in the bottle is unique...its actually dried slice sweetened coconut. They also served the local drink called Tuak which is made from rice wine. I had just a sip.

It was hot then...we got there after noon. No aircon...ceiling fan was going full blast but still hot. To think it was cloudy outside...cant imagine living in a longhouse if the sun was blazing. Some of the floor planks were uneven...luckily they covered most of it with linoleum. They said this house I visited is already considered the modern kind...

Below is an ariel view of one long house.
