lundu funfair road

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…

lundu funfair games of chance

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! :(

lundu fun fair bumper cars

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).
