The obvious topic would be my trip to Mount Singai in Kuching, Sarawak. As an appetiser, below is a shot of the ultra-modern sculpture of Christ the King at the foot of Mount Singai, just before the trail going up.
The main focus of my trip to Kuching is a visit to the Catholic Memorial and Pilgrimage Centre (CMPC) at Mount Singai. The Centre is about half way up the the mountain slope and is accessible through a jungle track and wooden steps (made of belian, a type of local hard wood) most of the way. Mount Singai is located 30km west of Kuching and is 536m high while the Centre lies about 300m up. The Centre is located at the exact spot where Fr. Felix Westerwoudt, a Dutch Catholic missionary, first settled in 1885. You can read more about Fr. Felix and the history of the Centre here.
OK, enough of the appetiser. The main course will be served in the subsequent posts.
