“I realised that kids this generation know nothing about old Kuching buildings. So, if we don’t start being conscious about our culture and heritage, soon, our history and heritage will be just stuffs of myths and legends.”
This moving comment was made in 2008 by ‘Pegs’, a Sarawakian who was involved in a measured drawing and documentation exercise of the -at the time threatened and now gone- old markets on Gambier Street, Kuching waterfront.
Today, six years later, this comment seems as valid as ever.
Pegs’ posted this page, with photos, on her ‘cloth with pegs’ blog.
She is a heritage-concerned Sarawakian, member of the Urban Sketchers Kuching group.
