“On the one rare occasion that I was able to take time off to travel alone, I decided on a writing retreat to Kuching in Sarawak. Just about an hour away from Singapore by plane, Kuching wasn’t entirely new to me; I’d been there once before to attend the inaugural Rainforest Fringe Festival in July 2017 where I’d stayed at The Waterfront Hotel on the city’s main drag. For my writing retreat, though, I opted for a quieter, but no less convenient, alternative – The Marian Boutique Lodging House.
The Marian offered me everything I needed to see me through my time alone; Carpenter Street and good grub to the left, awesome cendol just down the road (roadside, no less), St Joseph’s Cathedral a bit of a walk away for evening Mass – pretty much everything an undemanding visitor could ask for. ” — www.mackerel.life

The Forbidden Fruits, an art installation of large woven fruits exhibited at Borneo744 as part of the Rainforest Fringe have been making the rounds on the Internet, especially Instagram.
