I saw her standing there…

Yes, I did. I saw her standing there…

I got an sms from her a couple of days earlier saying that she’ll be dropping by in Sibu this weekend, but I did not get to hear from her on Saturday so I guessed she must have cancelled her plans or something.

As usual, on Sunday morning, I went to church and after the service, my missus and I went for breakfast. Gee! If you tell me that there is an economic recession right now, I will find it really hard to believe. Around the Sibu bus station area alone, I saw so many new food joints…but I did not manage to get to sample any as they were all overflowing with people. Good grief! Every place was so crowded and parking was such a pain! I headed to the more familiar Yum Yum Cafe that I had posted on before…

…and my missus had this bowl of fish ball noodles (RM4.00)…

…while I had the char siew-roast duck noodles (RM5.00)…

Both tasted ok but neither were something that I would go crazy about, and I felt the prices were pretty steep and I could get much cheaper and nicer stuff elsewhere. But I must say that what I had was nicer than something similar that I had here.

In the meantime, I got an sms from her, asking me where e-cafe was…so after we had finished, I went in search of her. She did not manage to find e-cafe and ended up eating kampua noodles at Soon Hock…and I was only able to catch up with her when she was standing outside the hardware store in the vicinity of the Delta Commercial Centre.

So, finally I got to meet ex-Kuching blogger, now based in Brunei, – Mar of marg.wordpress.com, a friend for quite sometime now in cyberspace and at one time, a radio friend as well, on the now-discontinued “Pat and Mag in the afternoon” on TraxxFm.

Nice meeting you, Mar…and now that your family’s settled in Sibu, I guess we’ll be meeting each other much more often from now on!
