One day at a time…

We left Sibu in the pouring rain; the flight was delayed by some 20-30 minutes. This was the scene at the boarding gate before the crowd arrived and the mad scramble to get on board the aircraft. Gee!!! I just can’t understand this kiasu mentality; after all, the flight’s only half an hour or so! Simply ridiculous, these people!!!…And they’re SO stingy they would not pay a bit extra for express boarding facilities…AND I’m sure they didn’t pay the RM3 for checked-in baggage either for each of them was lugging no less than TWO bags even though only one’s allowed as hand luggage. Well, as they say, some things NEVER change…..

Anyway, Gundot and daughter were waiting…and upon arrival in Kuching, we headed straight to Satok for Peterson’s hay pia (fried prawn ‘cakes’).

Peterson Kuching

Ummm…they were so very delicious. I ordered 6 pieces along with some of the other stuff…and later, ordered another four pieces…and hopefully, we can go back there for more before we return to Sibu in a few days’ time. For one thing, it seems that to him, taste is what is important and presentation is not one of his priorities…

Paterson hay pia

Probably someone should give him a few pointers and serving suggestions. LOL!!! Having had our fill, we went to check in at the hotel and after dumping our things in the room…

…we went to Spring, the new shopping experience in town…;the ethnic decor that you can see in the pic is in conjunction with the Gawai Dayak festival.

and in the night, Sophia came and took us out for dinner at…

JUNK sign

and her daughter and friend came along as well…

Sophia's gril and friend

Good grief! When did she grow to be one sophisticated, gorgeous looking lady? How time flies…!!! Sob! Sob! That can only mean one thing – I’m growing old!!! (Finally he realises it,you say? LOL!!!) Thank your lucky stars, everybody because right now, I do not have any photos of the lamb shank and the fisherman’s basket to insert in this post. The place was too dark to do those out-of-this-world dishes any justice. My daughter took some nice pics with her more technologically-advanced handphone so maybe I can get them from her to post at a later date.

By the way, I saw this on display at the hotel where we are staying…

Wedding dinner display

and that got me thinking! When was the last wedding dinner I attended? I went to one last year but it was because my father could not go…and I had to go on his behalf…and the one before that was in 2006, I think – an ex-student’s and I was invited to sing for the bride and the groom. Hmmm…so when will the next wedding dinner be? Archie? Cibol? Bongkersz? Tintin? KNB???…..In the words of JZ/Linkin Park, “What the hell are you waiting for…?” Hahahahahaha…..

  1. You have gotta be kidding me. No food post.. sigh… too bad you didn’t get a good photo of that lamb shank. But the lamb shank at Mum’s is not too bad i guess. On the contrary, i quite like it

    You haven’t tasted lamb shank until you’ve had Junk’s. I had it at mum’s. westwood, secret recipe (Irish stew) etc…etc…etc… All just can’t compare!!! I think mum’s the worst!!! Drowning in the gravy and overdone so the meat is so soft – not like meat at all!!!!

    Sakit gigi? Massage the back of your hands in between the knuckles. The pain will go away!!!! Will post food pics tomorrow…hopefully!!! LOL!!!

  5. So ashamed to tell you that I never been to Peterson. Where is it at Satok?
    Btw, I am also very kiamsiap. Din pay for express boarding, luggage check in and I fly with one back pack and one hand carry which is about 7kg. LOL Something never change.

    Satok Market where they sell pineapples, watermelons, bananas…the coffeeshop across the road from that section of the market! First one in that block!!! Haiz!!! Kuching people also kalah Sibu people pasal eating!!! LOL!!! Haiz!!! U another one of those kah!!! Teacher some more! Must show good example lah…

  6. Sempat juga you take the picture of the man!

    He didn’t know! Be careful…some of ur students may have taken ur photo…and terkejut u see urself in friendster!!! Hahahahahaha!!!! It happened to me once…the caption was “Fat, fat man”…and I found out who he was, tracked him down and made him change it to “Best teacher in the world”! Hahahahahaha!!!!!

  7. Seriously I have never seen such terrible presentation. You have to dig in to find all the different stuff. Can only see the hay pia and fish ball. The huan choo and tau hu are buried underneath. Maybe he is trying to tell us not to order so much. Overflow the plate!

    The one near Harbour View had better presentation but the taste not so nice! Maybe nobody ever ordered so much…no plate big enough! Hahahahahahaha!!!!

  8. odd name for a restaurant.haha!

    The place full of pieces of junk! U look carefully above the sign u can see a kiddy’s scooter!!!! Attracts lots of tourists…and was featured in “Jalan2 Cari Makan”.

  9. drums u oso taken ma … last time i wan u but u dunwan me leh .. u jual mahal .. :p

    Ooo…so u broken hearted lah, cibol? LOL!!!

  10. Stp, not so soon le… nowadays… there’s no hurry2 in marriage leh.. keke.. Enjoy First Then Kahwin… LoL!!!

    Cepat, cepat…baru dapat!!!! Already 1+1=2…can already mah!!! LOL!!!

  11. Ha! Ha! must let my daughter know you’ve got her pic on your blog. The food at Junk is as good as ever. Only wish there was no smoking in the restaurant though.

    Sometimes we meet these uncivilised people…..with brains the size of a pea and sadly in need of attention, never mind that they’re breakng the rules and getting all the negative attention!!!! So disgusting!

  12. Drums, u can have him anytime u wan..I don’t mind..Just tell me earlier:)

    I’m sure drums joking only lah, lily…but that cibol! Go ahead! U can tarek his telinga kuat2!!! Hahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

  14. flirt lagi.. hah.. flirt lagi lah cibol πŸ˜› nyahahahahaha! mary, can come to me πŸ˜› rotflmao!

    yea, everytime i board air asia.. i lazily sit there and wait till all out of the gate then i move. damn boring queuing there together with the kiasu people. (ehem.. i carry 3 luggage too. back pack, a medium sized bag, one paper bag normally. not because i want to save that rm3, but to save time on arrival :D)

    wedding? can eat kah there? i want.. who is going to have a wedding soon? cibol?? πŸ˜€

    Half kati 8 tahils…dua kali lima, both the same!!! Save time? What’s the hurry leh?…Will put up a post on this soon…
