Kuching - Day 1

Been absent for a month or so. My procrastination hits once again. Travelled quite a bit during the start of the Rooster Year and before the spring festival ends, final destination to the Land of Hornbill to spend some quality time with family.

First stop of the day was to the immigration office located at Jalan Simpang Tiga, about 5km from where we were staying. 

I have never seen such barriers specifically to block cars but allow motorcycles to pass through. Only in Kuching? 

The Spring Shopping Mall is just a stone's throw away from the immigration office. Spent some time there window shopping.

If you have a keen eye, you could see I am modelling with a stick of spiral fries. Not exactly window shopping as mentioned earlier because I bought some spiral fries at the basement. Impulsive buy but definitely worth it.

Lunch time at Rock Road Seafood Restaurant was quite awesome. 

Midin vege, grows abundantly in this part of Malaysia. 

Chicken in brown sauce. The sauce was somewhat addictive when eaten with rice.

Brinjal (or aubergine as learnt by the young people born in the 90s) with minced meat with bits of mushroom and savoury gravy. Another great accompaniment with the rice. Totally yummy. 

Eunice's craze. Crab in black pepper and honey sauce. Too sweet for my liking but the crab was fleshy and fresh. 

Total damage was less than RM150 for four persons. Worth coming back again. 

As we left the restaurant, we caught sight of this. 

This is how a local parks the car. Make sure the car is parked in between the space. It probably is a domino effect from the previous few cars in front which are parked the similar way. 

I suspect the lunch had a sleep-inducing effect on me as I was knocked out for a couple of hours after we returned home. 

Soon, it was chow time again. A dinner I have been looking forward to. 

Original recipe from Klang.

Dry bak kut teh served steaming with a bowl of rice. Came here all the way to eat something from Klang. Hahaha... 

Time for bed soon. I should stop here for now. Night!
