KUCHING: The state now has its first Upside Down House which is located in the city centre here.
Generally an Upside Down House is a building that has been constructed upside down, with everything inside fitted… upside down.
This gimmick has been the rave of locals and also tourists visiting Malaysia in the last three to five years where there have been many attractions like this mushrooming all over Malaysia.
Kuching Upside Down House owner Brendan Kon said that idea of setting up the gallery was inspired by his visits to interesting places locally and internationally.
“It’s not just upside down pictures but rooms of upside down interior and furniture that will surely make you tipsy,” he said at the opening of Kuching Upside Down House (behind Tune Hotel at Kuching Waterfront) yesterday.
Brendan hopes to give tourism industry in Sarawak and Malaysia a boost through his gallery.
“It is indeed my goal actually to bring this gallery back to Sarawak, and let everyone have fun. One of the objectives of setting up an Upside Down House in Kuching is to give the locals and tourists a whole new fun and mind blowing experience and happy memories for being in Kuching.
“This gallery is very suitable to all level of communities, from the young, old and families where they have the opportunity to take photo while having fun and with creative posing,” he said.
He also said that the gallery consists of a living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, bathroom, children bedroom and a home office.
“Apart form the experience, we have attractive merchandises and local souvenirs which help to promote Sarawak unique cultures and attractions,” he said.
