This one’s for you…

Well, I guess by now, everybody would know that Annie and her twins were in Sibu and we went out together for kampua noodles. Unfortunately, I was not able to take them out for lunch or dinner as I reckoned she and the boys would want to spend the limited time they had in town with her/their mum/grandma. After all, Annie had not come home for two years now.

However, I did manage to drop by the house before they left as I had bought some Sarawak souvenir t-shirts for the boys to remind them of their heritage or where their mum originates from. This one has a picture of some traditional ethnic handwoven baskets…

I wish they had some cartoon ones that are more appropriate for kids, for instance, cartoon caricatures of an orang utan or a hornbill. I think they have those in Kuching as they do get more tourists there but in Sibu, I do not know of many places selling these t-shirts, so I did not have much of a choice actually.

Besides, if only they would indicate the sizes according to the children’s ages – e.g. 4-5 years old or 5-6 years old, it would have been a lot easier for me. I was at a total loss when I had to pick the t-shirts and the salesgirl was not of much help either – equally blur! In the end, I chose two but I am pretty sure they are way too big for the twins. I had imagined them to be much bigger and when I got to the house, somehow they did not look that big, after all. Sigh! Maybe Annie can keep them for Chinese New Year – two or three years or more from now. LOL!!!

Then, I stopped by Aroma Bakery (GPS coordinate 2.31103,111.831443) in the vicinity of the Dewan Surah (Civic Centre) in Sibu to buy them these chicken pies that I like a lot…

They were piping hot from the oven and all the way home, while in the car, I was drooling away and wishing that I had bought an extra one for myself. Drats! Why didn’t I think of that?

I do hope you and the boys enjoyed the pies, Annie. It certainly was nice seeing you all again, do keep in touch and we’ll meet again sometime…
