Stinky cocks – The most beautiful cocks in the world!

Who would know the most magnificent cocks I’ve ever seen would be in a town called Buso (stinky)?  OK first a little background.

Chinese Miners rebelled against the Rajah (a pom). Obeying the new rules of a White Devil was too much.  The rebellion started on 18th February 1857. 600 men paddled down Sarawak river from Pangkalan Bau to Kuching. They attacked Kuching and the Astana (big residence of aforementioned Pom) in the early morning of 19th February. Somehow, James Brooke (Pommy rajah) managed to escape by swimming across the Sarawak river. The Chinese Miners burnt down the Astana and  killed and beheaded 5 Europeans.
The rebellion was doomed to fail from the beginning. There was no proper planning, the Miners lacked weapons and proper military training. There was no support from the local community, especially the natives.
Thus when news came that, the Tuan Muda (Charles Brooke) with the aid of Iban warriors from second Division (Skrang) was coming to avenge the death of the Europeans, the Chinese Miners decided to retreat from Kuching to Bau.
On 22th February 1857, they retreated upriver. But at Jugan Siniawan they were attacked and defeated by the combined forces of Ibans and Malays loyal to Brooke. More then a hundred Miners were killed, including their leader. Dead and decomposed bodies were found everywhere. The place where this happened is now called ‘Buso’ (in malay, it means stinky).

So our wonderful host in Kuching, John, decided we must visit this village on our way back from the day’s activities.  It took a while to find, and don’t blink when you get there.  We did finally find it after navigating a road with potholes the size of the South China Sea.  And it was tiny except for, as mentioned above, the most gorgeous cocks I’ve ever seen (to my friends & family keep all smutty comments to yourself because I know what you are thinking – having worked at a poultry farm I’ve seen a few right – or something like that).  Check it out, photos below!!
