Lundu is a town about an hour’s driver from Kuching. I headed there with my friends one night during a drunken impulse to eat seafood there (Lundu is renowned for its cheap and delicious seafood) and so we drove down in the middle of the night in search of food.
Well, we didn’t find food coz all the seafood restaurants were closed, but some coffee shops were still open so we got more beer and drove around the place. We figured we might as well scout around since we’re already there.
It turns out that there was a local Fun Fair going on there – the Lundu Children Amusement Fun Fair so we decided to check it out. The entrance free was RM 2 and it looked so inviting while inebriated so in we went. 😉
There were carousels with pretty ponies going round and round, with a glass mirror facade in the middle and the handrails that feels so familiar from childhood days…
The obligatory Ferris wheel was slowly spinning around with the bright neon lights covering the cages producing a swirl of florescent colors…
The games of chance that various booths ply to lure in the crowd was also there in abundance, offering gifts of soft toys if you could just toss the ring into the steeple, roll the ball down a nail obstacle course, or dart a space the size of a postage stamp from three feet away to get the prize instead of just a congratulatory sweet…
…and then all of a sudden, one booth pulled up the tarp on their setup. The carousel music that was playing in the background started to mute. The Ferris wheel lights dimmed and then ground to a halt. OMG! The fun fair had closed and we haven’t even gotten on a single ride! 🙁
However, loud techno music started to reverberate through the fun fair grounds as the other rides and booths shut down for the night. The bumper cars! The ride was still open! It seems that everyone was at the bumper car place getting on the rides so I got a bunch of credits and started to get into the bumper cars.
The credits goes for RM 10 for four (4) tokens and each ride on the bumper cars took two tokens so it’s RM 5 for a one minute ride. I spent RM 50 on tokens anyway, coz I have fond memories of our local semi-dilapidated safety regulation hazard fun fairs. 🙂
It was fun driving the bumper cars around, making it go fast, watching the contact wires spark on the mesh ceiling like lighting as you drive around, bumping into other cars. It certainly did bring back many fond memories.

The bumper cars were fun and even though that was the only ride we got on at the Lundu Children Amusement Fun Fair, we drove the one hour commute back to Kuching laughing happily (ever after).

A Little off topic maybe, but anyway – which template are you using? I really love the CSS style.
Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
Nice, just to let you know the post isnt showing up properly on my iphone – I think there is a plugin you can grab that takes care of that now.
