    Mistakes?

    Hello there,

    Could you check for me if the following has any grammatical errors?

    "I come from Kuching, Sarawak---a place where cultures and technologies take place in its unique way."


    Thanks in advance. Have a nice day :)

    Regards,
    Kenneth

    in my opinion , if you say( ...ways.), the sentense will be better.because you have (and) in your sentence.

    The grammar is fine, but the meaning/logic is not. Neither technologies nor cultures take place.

    I think what you mean is: "I come from Kuching, Sarawak---a place that has a unique culture." I'm not sure that any place has unique technologies.

    How about:

    I come from Kuching, Sarawak, a place where technology[ies] and culture[s] come together in a unique way.
