The New Look of Gambier Street

April 23rd, 2010 · 3 Surrendered

Remember this? It’s taken after the tearing down of the old market at Gambier Street. Took the photos somewhere mid last year.

I hadn’t passed by the area for God knows how long even though I’m staying in Kuching. Let’s see… More than 6 months! Passed by this area few days ago and asked my bro to snap some photos while I was driving.

So… This is how it looks like now.

Old historical buildings all gone and being replaced by trees? That’s what we were told, they want to plant trees!

Also some random structures. Esplanade that’s what they called it.

Hmmm… I’m speechless…

    My goodness, that place really different now, I’ve not been to that area quiet a long time too, more than a year I think or maybe 2 years I’m not so sure hehehe. I still remember last time I heard they demolished the old building because it and its people’s activities there polluting the river and receive a very bad comments from Health Department but yes we’ve lost one of the historical building. Look likes that area will become the “extension” of the waterfront :p

    I can’t wait to go back to KCH but looking at what they have done to this place makes me feel bad…

    GuestZ, very disappointing but we can’t do much.
