Landed…

We flew over to the peninsula on the 25th last – my missus, Melissa and I for Melissa’s convocation – the Malaysian one, at Putrajaya. That was why we stayed here and arranged for people to take her/us to Putrajaya on the following two days. We had gone to the one in Wellington, New Zealand already but since she wanted to go to this one as well to meet and catch up with her friends, I said ok and seeing that it was during the school holidays, I suggested staying on for a few days in KL to do whatever we liked.

smallkucing and family met us on arrival at the airport and sent us to the hotel. He was so sweet as to save this for me…

TD gift

…and Melissa – his Teachers’ Day gift to the teachers in his kindy. Melissa’s a full-fledged teacher now so she got one as well.

Papa & mamakucing were so thoughtful and kind and generous. They were afraid that we would starve to death at the hotel in the middle of nowhere so they got us these lovely char siew paos…

They were really good! Even Melissa, who is not really a fan of char siew pao, loved it a lot.

The siew mai were great too…

…and also the ones with salted egg inside.

Mamakucing made these herself…

…and she also gave me a few to eat in the room. You can see that she was extra generous with the filling…

BC - filling

…and there was salted egg inside too. Yum! Yum! I super-LIKE!!!!

Well, that wasn’t all! There was also this bag of coffee-roasted chestnuts…

Ooooo…they were so fragrant, so very nice that it did not take us long to finish the whole lot.

And oh gosh!!! They were so nice that they would drive all the way to take us around and go for dinner here, there and everywhere…but those would be in some later posts, not now. Thank you so very much for your warm hospitality and generosity. You all must come to Sibu now so that I can reciprocate in my small little ways.
