What I’ve done…

I took a flight to Kuching on Saturday, arriving just in time for lunch…so I headed straight to the small coffee shop along Green Road for the best kolo mee in town…

Kuching kolo mee

It was heavenly delicious!!! But even though I was there past lunchtime I had to wait for a very long time…but it certainly was worth it.  It has been ages since I had kolo mee and once a friend ta-paued for me (not from this shop) but it just wasn’t the same. Later, after checking in at the hotel, I went for prawn cakes (hay pia) for tea…

 Hay pia

It was not as nice as Peterson’s, next to the Satok wet market but since it was the weekend, all the stalls for the Satok sunday market would be up and the place would be horrendously congested. I had two hay pia, one fried tofu and one stick of fried kiaw (wantons)…and that came up to RM3.00, and I felt that was a bit too steep for so little.

The main event, of course, was Sophia’s birthday which was the reason why I went to Kuching – to grace the occasion at the Sarawak Club (Ehem! Ehem!! LOL!!!).

Birthday girl and cake

There weren’t any candles on the cake in case it would trigger off the fire alarm and set off all the water sprinklers.  That place was razed to the ground not too long ago, remember?…..Now, what do you think was on Sophia’s or the other Dimong’s mind? Just for the fun of it, why not suggest a caption for the photo? How about this to start of? “Aww…why does she have to cut it? Just give the whole cake to me lah!” Hahahahahahahaha……

And after dinner, we headed to the karaoke lounge at the club. Sophia’s hubby sang, “Itsy-bitsy Teeny-weeny Yellow Polka Dot bikini”. No wonder Sophia’s keeping herself so pencil-slim; imagine if she were my shape and size and wearing a bikini like that, that would probably be the last song her hubby would sing!  And one of the younger Dimongs sang the autobiographic “Seven Lonely Days”. Hahahahahahahaha!!!!! Kpg Nangka Boy sang “Beautiful Girl”, the Jose Marie Chan’s, thank God and not the Sean Kingston’s suicidal one…and Lionel Richie’s “Hello”…and one more English song, I just can’t recall which song now (…as Simon Cowell would say, “Very forgettable!” Hahahahaha!!!)…before he covered Peter Pan’s “Mungkin Nanti”. He sang it well…except that the thought kept crossing my mind that he must be at least four times Ariel’s size (Is that the name of Peter Pan’s lead singer?)! ROTFLMAO!!! And hey KNB!!! Stop looking at that young chick’s “cleavage” or “crack” as Cocka would call it…..!

Sarawak Club Karaoke

She’s got a tattoo on it?…..What?…..A cockroach???…Hahahahahahaha!!!!!! Sophia’s sis did an amazing rendition of Scorpion’s “Still lovin’ you” (Step aside, Cibol!!! You’ve met your match! LOL!!!) while I sang Joshua Kadison’s Beautiful in my eyes…and the P. Ramlee song about every man’s dream, “Madu Tiga” (isteri tuaisteri muda…and ana kawin tiga!!!. LOL!!!). We left the place past the witching hour…and the next morning, I had this at the hotel for breakfast…

Hotel buffet breakfast

The fried noodles -mamak style was a tad too salty, the omelette was bland…and the sausages and potato wedges tasted like…sausages and potato wedges. LOL!!! The bread pudding was absolutely divine though!!! I shouldn’t have wasted stowage space on the rest and feasted on the bread pudding alone! And I could not go for seconds as Sophia had said she would pick me up later to go for…..

Kuching laksa

Yup! We had Kuching laksa…and this was one of the best in town at Padungan (Chong Choon or something like that)…but honestly, the laksa that I usually cook at home is MUCH nicer!!! Hahahahahaha!!!!!! Every ass loves to hear itself bray. Anyway, after that, she sent me to the Kuching International Airport…

Kuching International Airport

…and soon, I was home. It was indeed a wonderful weekend well-spent and a much-needed break for me!…..Well, one parting shot – does this mean that there are laws governing how patrons must say goodbye as they leave the place in question? LOL!!!!!
