Taman Selera, by me

Some pics I took yesterday at Appetite Park Taman Selera. Click on them to get (not much of) a description. The real reason I went there is to take a pic of how the beach had eroded.

Great Stuff. Have you c.c to MCC?

Guess they don’t bother about it anymore… hey… do u think Miri is so big until no one from MCC notice it…the sad part is here… … sure they know… but doesn’t want to work on it… :cry:

C.c. what to MCC? I just wanted to show how much the land has retreated into the ocean.

I’m sure with all these sinking news going around they’re getting geological experts to look into it though. Maybe.

nice n beautiful pic http://oraitforum.5.forumer.com/html/emoticons/oraitforum/peace1.gif
i went there last friday
makan-makan… :smiley:

Speaking of erosion, I took this photo on Feb of 1999 at the beach of then RR Hotel. I heard it’s all covered by rock barrier now and water is several feet below, which mean, the beach you saw in the photo is completely gone…

I thought the rock structures into the sea at Taman Selera can break waves and reduce their forces, but it seems the forces of nature is unbreakable.

Oh, does anyone remember the old Kuala Baram road? Its under the sea now :cry: I hope Taman Selera does not end up like that 15 or 20 years down the road…

Nice photo key.

Yeah, even the newer Baram road is having erosion problems as well.

Sorry to dissapoint u Keys, if MCC have not start any thing or planning since yesterday, don;t think Taman Selera have that long too go. Not only Taman Selera, the Miri Golf Club at Kampung Melayu, also face the same danger.

You know what, why don;t MCC have dialogues with the people about their concerns. Set a date, time and venue. A place where the normal people can voice out their concerns.

Not during election time thing. Just 2 reporters enough. One from Chinese and the other English.

I think they should select certain groups of people (RT Chairmans, Chamber members and maybe non-profit organization members to attend as bringing any Tom, D ick and Harry would not be any more useful though. Have a geological expert talk about this to the general public, and what we can do, what their views are, and what the world situation is like (e.g. is this only a Miri problem or worldwide?) etc.

Ya…good point there.

Really?! Now what? move the road further in? or create another rock barrier? :roll:

Yup, u guessed it! Another rock barrier.

And seriously. I’m talking about the newer double-lane Baram coastal roads.

A thought occurs. Maybe all that dumping of rocks into the sea made the sea level rise.

Slaps head Do’h.

Sea levels are rising world-wide, albeit slowly but surely, caused by melting of huge ice glaciers in the poles. Low-lying locations that are fully exposed to the elements, as the taman is, will eventually be submerged, unless a mega-zillion dollar project like the Zuider Zee in Holland is replicated. Just wishful thinking here!

Used to have to walk 1/4 mile to get to the water at low tide!

ian,i like pic #3,very “cool” feel :slight_smile:

#1 & #2 a bit handshake,found the speed only arround 1/50",must be hard with limited light available :wink:

Thanks my4to.

Yeah, I have shakey hands, and am just using auto for speed. Taken with a friend’s Nikon 5900.

waisemen! Nikon 5900 not a cheap thing oo… 8)

Ian, why I feel that you were sad when you took those photos? Not like the typical you at all…

There must be some other reason besides erosion problem… are you okay?

Err, I’m fine. What gave you that idea? It’s just that I was in a hurry to take some of these pics and then shot a few more for the New Year since I’m there already. Was looking for something to blog about and show people how things have changed.

beware,relaxjack is trying to read ur mind,hehehe :lol:

I also took a video of the place. Warning! Not much of a video.
