Haiku for Every Malaysian City and Town

Hometown Sibu
a swan for the
rambutan namesake

soaring
a swan
for Sibu

(sibu is derived from Sibauh, a fruit
like rambutan)

Bintangor
i morph from an animal
to a star and now a tree

bintangor
so many names to encapsulate
her time

(first called binatang, then
bintang and now Bintangor.
Its mascot is its famous
sweet green oranges)

Sarikei
he remember the girl he loves
with spiky hair

(Sarikei famous for its sweet pineapples)

Sri Aman
be as calm in the boat as
the crocs on the sandbar

Peace Town
so peaceful noon crocs
on the banks

(Sri Aman or Peace Town
has rivers at one time infested
with crocodiles some more than
10 metres

Kapit - a free room
from a friend
since high school

Kapit - lumberjacks
down beer, songs and women
late into the night

Kuching
big cats, small cats
where are the real cats?

Kuching means cat...Kuching
is a cat city with a cat museum
cat statues can be seen in many
places...but live cats...perhaps
only in people's houses

Miri - Grand Old Lady
the smiles of the ladies send
sparks down his heart

Limbang - the river
and us
amble along

Mukah
