Travels End as December Comes

finally its time to unwind back in Kuching again as the work travels slow down in December.. went to watch Big Hero 6 (nice cartoon!) and ate at Sakae Sushi

tried out this new Big Sister Dumpling Cafe at Ang Cheng Ho.. not used to the self service. the set with dumplings is more worth it

chilling at Cloud 99

had a simple western dinner at Central Park

family plus office dinner.. with a set up of a wedding dinner! *sweat*


tried out this new place (new to us) near One TJ, had fish noodles at Yu Zhi Xiang and had prawn mee at the kopitiam next door

attended a wedding at a house

went to Pustaka Negeri Sarawak for a discussion.. nice but underused facility!

the lovely glass cafe overlooking the lake at Pustaka

tried out the newly renovated Medan Hamidah which is now Your Choice Cafe.. berbelanja sambil beramal

had lui cha at Big Mouth Kopi Tiam Batu Kawa

early December celebration at Tom's! watching the lovely Kuching Christmas Parade by the window

breakfast at Sin Poh Poh2 Padungan the next morning, moved here not long ago

dinner at Chef At Home behind the Astro near Wisma Saberkas, also moved from the house at Hui Sing

two nights of western food back-to-back.. nice although my spaghetti came late

tried out the Family Cafe near ambank at Satok area.. the prawn noodles/ mee udang superb special here go up to RM88!

tried the 101 Taipei at BDC as well next to Expert Food Court.. nice pork chops!

Borneo Tropical Rainforest Resort, Miri

after my interview in KL i had to fly straight to Miri and take a drive for nearly an hour to the Borneo Tropical Rainforest Resort, Lambir in Miri. this was my room that night

strolled around the next morning


the general map of the resort, there are lots of activties provided here

many more resorts of such in Sarawak!



entrance fees comes with food, and fortunately as there's no other way to get food

very meaningful indeed!

the map outside.. too bad i did not have chance to explore the different outdoor activities and games.. perhaps they should do induction/orientation here next time for more team building activities! but alas.. i am not so much an outdoor person myself, although i do miss the flying fox!

To Learn, to Celebrate and to Interview in KL

and that.. summarizes this post

was in Istana Hotel, KL for a weekend course

and the room cost me more than RM400 a night!

since the course coincided with my mum's birthday, i brought my parents along with me to KL

had buffet lunch at Jogoya Starhill.. there's offer RM69 plus plus on Fridays

so we feasted and feasted.. even Kuching's RM89plus plus can't beat this

jalan jalan at Pavillion

and since I was at the course whole weekend, my parents were mostly relaxing in the room, or at this Spa

this is on a separate KL trip about 36 hours later.. stayed at Everly Putrajaya this time with a friend

it's good to meet up with my good old friends.. oddly enough on a weekday

and the next day, interview! *sweat* all the best!!!
