I bet you've never heard of Miri, let alone Bekenu.
Miri's my hometown! And is where the historical Mulu Caves are. The experience of being in the Mulu Caves is overwhelming. Imagine an area of caves. AND. It's as big as Singapore. Yes, although Singapore is not even noticeable in the world map, but still - its substantial
300K+ population, tallest building which would be the Imperial Mall is not more than 30 stories. Alot of pubs around but everybody goes to only 1 pub, which is the Balcony. To alot of Mirians, going to Balcony is like a place where you can meet the Brad Pitts and Angelina Jolies of the world and they dress up like their dads gonna think they're goin to a ball at midnight. And the Japanese culture has creaped into them but they're failing miserably.
And so all the other pubs live on renting their chinese bar staffs to the public. Mirians just dont know how to promote competition to benefit themselves eventually.
Mirians.... SIGH.... like to go to politician open houses during CNY to get free food & ang pows & watch FREE lion dances trying to keep their balance on the stilts. So thats why BN reigns supreme in this part of the country, coz they fucking distribute free food and give ang pows and call up the lion dances... MAN, if i was politician, id be CM of Sarawak.
But Miri is the place i wanna be when im raped by my clients. Because its by the coastal area so you can eat, drink, party, have sex at the beach and i wake up to food on the table and i dont get stuck in traffic jams and i dont pay parking tickets, i can just not give a fuck about anything.... so Miri as you're trying to imagine now, isnt that bad afterall.
ANYWAY, to my point..... i mean what the Title suggests.
Bekenu has a population of not even 6 digits and 99% of that 5 digits you cant even see. Coz they live in the farms, by the sea and in the plantations. The city centre has not more than 10 blocks of shops and they're all 2 stories tall. And half of them are not opened.
But what the fuck is Starbucks doing there...
