A visit to Miao Miao city (Kuching)

Before i start, kindly tell me something that you might think of about Kuching?


Some might answer uncle lim,

snapping pics with his Canon 1000D

or mr Yeoh,

sms-ing with his exPedia Hp

Well, for the rest of you, I believe the first 2 things that come to your mind about Kuching must be Kucing (Cat) and Food!

The very first night when we (Jian, Qris and I) arrived in Kuching, they (Hsheong, Uncle lim, and Xiao wei) brought us to the Kuching Open Air Market for dinner. One thing very special in Kuching is about their drinks.

This drink is called White Lady (combination of milk + longan + Pineapple ),priced at RM2.50, famous in Kuching. I have no idea why is it called white lady. White Lady = Ang Moh lady?

Next, they have Tomato mee, keow teow or mee pok.

The next morning, we had the famous Kon Lo Mee in Kuching.

There are two types, white sauce and red sauce. Both very oily. Definitely prefer the red sauce, YES THE RED SAUCE.

After breakfast, we had a chance to visit the largest shopping mall in Kuching, The Spring Mall.

Then, we headed to another hawker centre for some local food.

The Hock Chew Kong Pia, tasted like heaven, RM 0.40 each

Sarawak Rojak

Sarawak Laksa

The 4 of them

and the 4 of us

After lunch, we went for a walk along the Kuching lake. We then took a boat to the other side of the lake in search of kek lapis. It only cost RM 0.60 per person per journey.

Uncle Lim and Mr Yeoh

Me. ME. ME.

We were able to meet the rest of the p105-ians during dinner time.

From L-R : Me, Jian, Qris, Ming Ying, Sue Choo, Yeoh Ah sou, Mr yeoh, Uncle Lim

The next morning, we took a visit to the Cultural Village (aka Kampung Budaya Kuching). The ticket is very expensive.

Luckily, thanks to IMU, who gave us a student card with no expiry date on it, we were able to fake ourselves as a student, and got a ticket at the price of RM 15 each. It is even cheaper than purchasing a child ticket!! Child =/ student?

The fun time came in when Qris and Jian got themselves dressed up in traditional Iban clothes.

Which one is your favourite picture? Feel free to vote please.

After the boring cultural show, we left Cultural Village and headed for dinner - S-E-A-FOOD!

And finally, we went to the beach to catch the sunset.

To vb gang out there, i missed playing beach volleyball so damn much!!!!! i want a trip at the beach with you guys! Motivate me to organise one...

That marks the end for MiaoMiao Visit! Up next - Hong kong trip with loupoh, Desaru visit, Sentosa day trip with ang moh + uncle lim and p106 graduation!
