For more than 15 years, Bujang Keri had been rendering his cobbler service on the sidewalks opposite the Electra House.
And he continues to do this till today despite his friends coaxing him to relocate for better business as the number of people visiting the city centre decreases day by day.
“Why should I move? I still believe people need to pass by this place to get to their destination. It’s the city centre,” he told The Star yesterday.
Recalling the days when he first started out as a cobbler, he said people from all parts of the city would congregate particularly at the Electra House before moving off elsewhere.
This prompted him to set up base on the sidewalks there.
“Since it was the first multi-storey shopping complex the city had at that time, it was a landmark for all. When you want to meet with friends at the city’s centre, all you have to say is ‘meet at Electra House’,” he said.
The 63-year-old who hails from Rampangi said it was ‘the’ place for all to come to and shop at as it graced the city’s skyline and the people were just fascinated by it.
“Electra House served as the place where the urban and the rural people from the ‘kampungs’ met and because it attracted the crowd, I began my cobbler services here,” he said.
Sharing his sentiments was retired police personnel David Jalil, 60, who used to ‘hang out’ at Electra House during his bachelor days.
“There were just so many things and events taking place at Electra House since the buses stopped in front. Even during the riot in 1969, the police had a booth at Electra House to recruit more policemen.
“Which was only logical since that’s where you got the crowd and the police training school was just across the river (Sungai Sarawak),” he said.
Back in those days, he said people who travelled to Singapore often likened the Electra House area to Rochar Centre.
Nevertheless, he said the building also witnessed many unwanted incidence like fights.
“Kuching did not have many nightclubs in those days and one was called the ‘Hongkong cave’. It just so happened to be on the top floors so there was bound to have a fight or two. So Electra House has its stories to tell,” he said.
When asked if it was a good idea to have the place transformed into a hotel, David agreed.
“In those days, buildings were built to last and so was Electra House. If it is turned into a hotel, it would be good because tourists love to come to the rustic city centre. It will be convenient for them to live here too,” he added.

Anyam ketupat berisi inti
Hancur tulang daging berkecai
Belum dapat belum berenti
Pergi ke darat berlombak kuda
Pergi satok ke jambatan gantung
Bila ku lihat wajah adinda
Hati beramuk berdengan jantung
Dari acheh ke china berdagangan
Dalam berlayar dipukul rebut
Jika kasih berbantal lengan
Jika sayang bertilam rambut
Bagaimana cakap orang putih
ABC mula dilayar
Bagaimana kita berkasih
Cincin di jari kita bertukar
Rumah burok pintu sembilan
Nantik rebuk sik juak rebuk
Seperti pungguk rindukan bulan
Nantik gugok si juak gugok
di pagi raya
Mun kitak kurang percaya
Ambik pisok belahlah dada
sayur sawi dipatah liat
tanam sehari merimbun daun
mun sehari nisik melihat
rasa bercerai seribu tahun
malam ini malam jumaat
malam esok malam sabtu
jika datang ati teringat
tepuk bantal sebut namaku
Ijo ijo dalam perigi
Kacang golok di dalam puan
Terigo-igo termimpi mimpi
Bantal kupeluk rasamu tuan
Minum kopi berik bersusu
Pahit rasanya kupinum juak
Kalau ku turut hawa nasu
Jika ndak mati menjadi gila
Ledam ledum meriam astana
Tanda menanti rajah maok datang
Tuan ibarat sekuntum bunga
Maok dipetik tangan ndak datang

This is Sarawak anthem used from 1973 to 1988.Sarawakian born or enter school after that year doesn't sing this sarawak anthem.
Sarawak negeriku berdaulat merdeka
Rakyatnya hidup teguh bersatu padu
Semua berazam terus berkhidmat pada negara
Sentiasa maju pertiwi
Bahagialah tanah airku
Sarawak negeri yang ku cinta ku puja
Untukmu ku rela korban jiwa raga
Abadikan Sarawak ya Tuhan dalam Malaysia!
Music: Johari Salleh (b. 1940)
Beside Brooke Dockyard,there use to be "lorong Dock" a very narrow street that have coffee stall,small shops selling rare household item,bundle, farmers selling their fresh produce like lemidin,terubok and others.Sarawak Transportation Bus Company also stop here where drivers and conductors rest for a while before their next trip..Now,all gone and its become part of another unwritten and unrecorded history of Kuching.

As far as i can remember the Rex building demolished sometimes early or middle 1990's,between 1992 to 1995.It was then when i was still in High school.During my childhood,my uncle used to bring me here and i can remember watching Superman.But it was that time,during cinema still become one of people entertainment,where television only have TV1 and TV2.
After revolution of television,cable tv,VCR,VCD and home entertainment.Cinema abandon and it happened to Rex,Capitol and many more Cinema in Kuching and other places too.The only old cinema left in Kuching now only Cathay near to Brooke dockyard..Only the building left and now become market.Sound funny but that's the fact,in near future that old building also will be demolish to give chance to development.
Pemandangan yang biasa dilihat di Kuching terutama di kawasan DBKU.Penutup lubang di jalan -jalan baik di tepi jalanraya atau di belakang lorong kawasan Perumahan.Kebanyakkan penutub lubang ini ada jugak yang dah dicuri oleh pencuri besi,yalah masa harga besi melambung naik,semua barang yang dicuri termasuk penutup lubang ini pun dicuri.
Sebelum ini,penutup lubang ini hanyalah besi sahaja tanpa ada tanda tanda nama,tapi apabila kes kecurian besi semakin meningkat makanya DBKU turut melabel penutup ini dengan DBKU dan gambar Kucing..kenapa gambar kucing ?tak letak logo rasmi DBKU?? mungkin nak ringkas sahaja atau biarlah letak lukisan Kucing ni sebab bandaraya Kucing ni sememangnya dah terlalu sinonim dengan Kucing.
