Bloggers' Night organised by BB Bunkers, jointly hosted by BB Bunkers, Damai Central, Escobar & Escape Beach Bar.

That was more than 2 weeks ago.
I went there to stay for a nite and joint the activities arranged for us on Saturday morning.  I brought along my colleague cum traveling partner, MsCyril.  Girls weekend gateway.... katanya.

I only knew about Damai Central last year,  Quite a 'happening' place during the RWMF 2013.  It is just opposite the entrance of Kampung Budaya Sarawak.  It is an innovative multi-purpose public complex built in Sarawak ethnic-concept design.  Just an hour drive or less from Kuching.  Owned by SEDC and some of the tenants are:
-  Medan Niaga Foodcourt
-  Bayridge Fine Seafood Restaurant
-  Escobar and Grill
-  Escape Beach Bar
-  BB Bunkers (new)
-  7-Eleven Convenience Shop

BB Bunkers is a hostel like accommodation - dormitory-style bed with 'pods' as bed bunkers to define the semi private spaces.  It is clean, stylish but concept, hostel like.  No only man or only woman area.  Tak ada.  Semua campur.  Kalau nak privacy sikit, do opt for the double pod kat tingkat atas. Amaran - tak ada sound proof or silencer, so be prepared untuk mendengar bunyi 'snoring' or 'ehem-ehem'.

Here are the details on the pod types and rates:

Pod types and configurations:
1 x Family Pod (1 x double bed & 1 x sofa bed)
6 x Double Pod (1 x double bed)
2 x Single Pod (1 x single bed)
2 x Twin Pod (2 x single bed)
3 x Triple Pod (3 x single bed)

1 x Dorm Pod (5 x single bed)

shared toilets and showers - semua campur... toilet and showers unisex. 

AC and fans, free Wi-Fi - high speed!!!
TV room (
equipped with a DVD player and bean bags) and pantry

Well, if you and ur friends just need a place to sleep and ease yourselves comfortably, after 'party-party' or drinking session at one of the bar, or even after attending a wedding reception at the seafood restaurant... u can opt to stay here.  Cheap and affordable and clean.

I am thinking of bringing Barry and his frens to spend a nite here one of the weekends.  There is a movie nite on every 1st and 3rd Saturdays at the Barok Amphitheater in the evening.  The beach is just a few minutes walk.  There are other activities available provided by Damai Central such as jungle trekking (RM45 per pax) , bicycle tour (RM30 per pax) or even Pansuh Cooking Class (RM25 per pax) and many more.

Briefing by Adrian of Damai Central on the activities available...

Bloggers listening with full concentration....

Ready for bicycle tour.... 30 years dah tak naik basikal.  Konfiden habis...

 Photo session with the handsome Adrian and his mate.  
See.... the cat on my t-shirt is sniffing the macho young man.  Bad meow!!!
Hehehe...... Adrian is my good old fren's son...
