Day 6: Destination #2- Kuching

By Joanne Chow

We received the warmest welcome by Scouter Daniel and the Kuching scouts officials when we arrived at Kuching. They gifted each contingent member with a beautiful authentic Sarawak Borneo scarf upon arrival and presented a cultural dance for us, which even Scouter John joined in! Check back soon, we’ll have a video too!

We met the Minister of Social Development and President of the Sarawak Scout Council, YB Tan Sri Dato Sri William Mawan Ikom. At the Ministry headquarters, we were greeted by the press and reporters who were extremely interested in our Crew’s story. There was a cultural exchange of souvenirs and gifts, as well as speeches by the contingent and the Minister. He told us that Sarawak is a city of great hospitality and he encouraged us to visit the rural places to get a taste of what local lifestyles are like. This was such comforting news and we cannot wait to explore Kuching.
