Miri Night Street Market at Brooke Road, is proposed by the Miri Council to be implemented some time around the end of February or early March 2018 that offers a trading space for night market vendors, traders, farmers, artists, craftspersons for trading of their goods or services at night.
The Weekend Flea Market is a weekend event at Permy Mall, a marketplace where a selection of used and new items can be found. The market starts at 10am in the weekend mornings and ends at 9.30pm. The Weekend Flea Market is held every Saturday and Sunday.
Highstreet Chinese New Year Market (also known as Gong Xi Bazaar) is an annual event that takes place about a week before the celebration of the Chinese New Year eve. Highstreet Roads are closed off during this week to set up stalls during day, with a section of Kingsway closed at night for the event.
Miri Open Air Market, or Miri Central Market is located at the heart of the old town center. This is a market place with sections that offer a variety of fruits, vegetables, tofu and pork for morning shoppers.
I recall the 10 o'clock whistles at the old Shell complex at the town area. This whistle will go off every Thursdays at 10 o'clock mornings in those good old days.
I've never figured out what the whistle was for, but every time when it goes off, this either intentionally, or unintentionally prompts everyone to check their watches and reset the time if necessary. I'm not sure if this was a timekeeping thing, but it sure is handy for that purpose. This whistle kept up until the early 1980s long after the refinery was moved to Lutong and it fell silent after that around that time.
