天鵝之都誕生了!

願詩巫人民

如天鵝般純潔、善良、出污泥而不染




在經過多年的爭執與議論,象徵詩巫的標誌終於定案,天鵝誕生了。

詩巫,天鵝之都,出現了。

詩巫,開埠於1860年之前,座落在馬來西亞最大的州-砂拉越(Sarawak)的最長河流,拉讓江(Rajang River)中游,離開南中國海約120公里。

拉讓江(Rejang River)是砂拉越人民,尤其是中區一帶的母親河。

拉讓江又稱鵝江,因五百多公里長的蜿蜓彎曲河道,貫穿婆羅洲心臟地帶,以其狀似鵝頸項而取名之。其支流縱橫交織,蔓延著砂拉越一半土地的的中區,滋潤了兩岸的無數生靈與土地。

  詩巫,開埠於1860年,經過各個時代及各個種族的默默耕耘,開墾,終於有了今天的規模,一個靠拉讓江哺育,仍在茁壯中的市鎮,被稱為天鵝之都也名正言順。進入廿一世紀,先後在詩巫之窗、江濱公園及詩巫廣場堅立了天鵝塑像。詩巫天然景色不多,但擁有廿餘萬名的天鵝般的市民,就如白天鵝的出污泥而不染,純潔又良善的特性。這正是詩巫的人文精神、傳統道德的性格,在未來仍待塑造中的詩巫的重要因素。

  105年前(1901年)來自中國的福州人,在詩巫拉讓江畔及新珠山開闢新福州墾場,也設立美以美教會(現稱衛理教會Methodist Church)。信仰就一直是這批日出而作,日落而息的福州移民的生活指南針。


  在新世紀教會仍然如當年初抵新珠山一樣時會督(Bishop)所宣告的“你們要成為世上的光與世上的鹽!”

Congratulation! Nice attempt.
Sibu's 3rd Swan mascot was laid onto the base of the foundation at Sibu Town Square at exactly 5.00 p.m. yesterday.
I was enjoying a plate of sea weeds @Rm2.00 & a cup of fresh cucumber juice @Rm2.50 at Manna Cafe & Gallery @ 5th floor, Wisma Sanyan and overlooking the settlement.
......How nice if the whole street be renovated (birds chased away), decorative trees well trimmed and all the operators of eating houses allowed to display tables & chairs outside at night along the parking lots(entry blocked)... all lit up, decorated and with piped music streaming in the air in a city of harmony... famous swan city in the making...

Well, if you display the tables & chairs and anythings with 4 legs outside your shops, you gotto pay taxes to the local authority. Whatever left or Right, it's a good idea just like Bintang Walk.But don't litter!!

诗巫人出泥而不杂?抬举了!拉让江水质变「茶乌」,纯洁白色天鹅若游在其中就变成「黄鹅」了。真想不透诗巫市政局预祝2008年升市)会选出白天鹅作为诗巫标志。今天更妙,本州各主要媒体报导卫生部竟然说要研究拉让江水质是否与手足口病症有关。如果获得证实的话,建议森林局官员与木材商捉去打屁股。为何诗巫总是「好事」不来,「坏事」连篇爆!
