The VMY 2014 signage that is wind damaged and vandalised across from Kuching Waterfront on Saturday. According to Kuching North City Hall, the lights at the installation, which was put up at the end of last year, has been stolen for the third time. "Everytime it is vandalised, we try to repair it and bill it to the (federal) Tourism Ministry," Datuk Bandar Datuk Abang Abdul Wahap Abang Julai told The Star last weekend.
