Sarawak Government Almanac 2012

Most of us use the Sarawak Government Almanac just to plan our upcoming holidays which in most cases ties in with public holidays.  Others such as the Chinese uses it to find corresponding dates in the Lunar calendar; Muslims use it to identify corresponding dates in the Hijrah calendar.  Those in the marine industries will be checking on the timing of high tides in respective locations, and there are those who tracks moon phases and events.  Sometimes there are annual events which are not public holidays but noted in the almanac too.  All-in-all, I believe everyone can find some use in the almanacs.  Knowing the frustration in getting own copy from the very limited supplies out there (which is only printed once a year), am putting up the table here to help those who can’t get their own copy on a timely manner – yes, these Sarawak Government Almanac 2012 is now just starting to appear in local bookstore or magazine stalls.

P/S: According to the almanac, it looks like Deepavali is still not a public holiday here in Sarawak.

  1. 😛 Thank you this time too many stationary shops and magz stall took advantage and sell these for ‘belas-belas ringgit’.. and many of us cannot live without one, even if its solely for checking out holidays.. 😳 So thanks again..and happy new year 2012!

    • Yeah it looks sloppy initially – only had my digital camera with me on my holiday trip. Managed to get at my scanner in office today and have just uploaded a cleaner version above. 😛

  2. Please check is there anything wrong with the Kuching tidal time for 13.1.12, the morning max. tide should be 0647hr and the afternoon 1953hr. very confusing.So as those of other months. thanks.

    • 🙂 Hi Mr. Kho Kay Kuang.
      I think it is deemed fit that your question be directed to Percetakan Nasional Malaysia Berhad, Kuching.

    • In my experience, I’ve seen typos and editing errors in Sarawak almanacs before, so it may not seem as a surprise to me if there are confusing contents. For tide tables, best to consult with the official “Sarawak Hourly And High & Low Tide Tables” released by the Sarawak Marine Dept. which can be bought directly at their office (if they are still available). Haven’t got my copy for 2012 to cross-check, but it should be something you should be using instead of the almanac version.
