Just heard news direct from Kuching that the 130 year old very exclusive Sarawak Club in Kuching has burnt down to ashes…with the only thing left now, the swimming pool.
“Poor old building” is my friend’s exclamation when I told him about it. While my sister says, she regrets having never taken pictures of the building. Sarawak Club has been the hangout place for many of those exclusive members for all those years. It’s got some nice facilities, the pool, the gym, the cafe, library etc etc. I remember having gone there a few times with my friend in high school whose dad was a member. Really cosy place. It had also been the venue for many many functions, company dinners, anniversaries etc.
Hey now it’s gone. Burnt down 3am on 27 July 2006. Anyone got any latest updates? Are they gonna rebuild it? What happens to those who have paid the hefty lifetime membership fees?
