Miri Citizens

Miri is home to 28 ethnic groups who co-exist peacefully in a harmonious blend of culture, beliefs and traditions, each with their own distinct language, culture and lifestyle. Our people love sharing their colorful rituals, culinary traditions, unique crafts, music and exciting dance performances with our visitors.

While consisting of many different races, it is hard to distinguish between the races of the general populace in Miri because they all look very similar with perhaps the exception of skin tone.

Sarawak is rather distinctive from the rest of Malaysia in that there is a smaller community of Indians living in the state compared to elsewhere but they are all equally welcome in the community.

It is truly incredible how the Loving God Almighty has transformed
the Lun Bawang people and the beautiful cousin tribes. Meeting them
in 2008 in Limbang and Lawas left an impression of their warmest
hospitality,their quiet but determined faith in God, their generosity
to those in needs and enthusiasm in education, health and socio-economics.
I was not aware of the background of their forefathers prior to
reading Drunk Before Dawn by Shirley Lees. PTL for the early
missionaries, the past, the present and the future pastoral care.
Someday in the near future,if the Lun Bawang and her cousin peoples
continuously remain steadfast,always remember their humble past,but
working with sheer determination,they will make phenomenal positive
differences to multitudes yet remain a people of Grace.

Hi Jennie,

Thank you for your suggestion. MiriResortCity.com is not directly related to MCC, nor is it politically involved, but I'll try my best to help;

There is an online public feedback web site which you can try. The link is here:


It allows for receiving public complaints or feedback.

I understand your concern about the roads in Taman Tunku - I regularly go there too. So here's hoping the proper authorities can get it right for once.

The website is great. But You should set up a column for feedback from the public on how to improve the services of MCC to meet two of its objectives as follows

To deliver reliable and efficient municipal services through competent and committed workforce.

To provide and upkeep infrastructure, public amenities and facilities through strategic and systematic planning

Recently on 27th February, 2007, I have make a trip to MCC to pay my assessmet. I also make a visit to the Maintenance Section to lodge a complain on the roads at Taman Tunku. The main road and the internal road especially to Lorong no. 16, Jalan Kuching Timur 3 was really bad with many pot holes. The road was flooded after a heavy down pour.

A Mr. Gerpi Singh took down my statement and told me that the matter will be referred to a Mr. Teo for the necessary action. I would like to know what action has been taken as nothing seem to be taking place after a week.

Do we have to wait for election time to get a speedy request to tackle these road maintenance ?

I appreciate immediate attention.

Thank you.
