Anthony Brooke at Pustaka Miri

I went to Pustaka Miri today since i got nothing better else to do.
It'd been 4 years since i last stepped into this place.
Funny how, this is the place where i once spent a lot of times on
 studying for SPM. 
Nothing much have changed besides me getting older having more books.
The atmosphere is still very convivial.


Oh look! They have my book!!


Surprisingly, there was this small exhibition about 'Anthony Brooke'
going on. If you are a Malaysian and you have no idea who he was,
do refer back to your secondary form 2 text book.
More info about him at Wikipedia.



Anthony Walter Dayrell Brooke
(10 December 1912 – 2 March 2011)

Going through the exhibition is like reading a chapter left out in the text book.

The exhibition provides insights into his life from his early years to his experiences as the Rajah Muda of Sarawak during the British rule up until his demise in 2011 at the ripe old age of 98.

Now let me show you one of the most
interesting information i've learnt from the exhibition.
This~~!
Sarawak flag under different eras. Personally, i fancy the one we are having now the most.
What about you?
and a close up look of stamps from the Brooke era~~!

The exhibition will be in Pustaka Miri, ground floor until 20th July.
Be there to read up his side of story.

Is 12am now and i'm still here typing this.
Anyway, is finally raining here in Miri.
My calling to bed is finally here~~ Ciao then~
