A number of you may know her, one of my blogger friends in Kuching, as I’ve seen her commenting in a number of blogs and I’ve seen some of you doing the same in hers as well. I would say that she is technically a Sibu blogger now as she has moved here, following her husband who now works in Sibu.

When they shifted here, she was in the family way so we never got round to arranging to meet each other in person and then, she gave birth. Those of you who follow her blog would know of all these events in her life, I’m sure. She did invite me to her baby’s full moon but I think it was on a Sunday and as usual, I was sending Melissa back to her school in Selangau so I was not able to make it. The school holidays are here and she did make a trip back to Kuching for a few days and when she got back the other day, she contacted me and we arranged to meet for breakfast one morning at this coffee shop hereand finally, we did, after all this time.

She’s very young, very pretty and very fair and gosh…she’s so slim even though, if I’m not mistaken, the recent one is her third child. She’s very friendly, very easy to get along with and we got off to a great start and talked about this and that like we’ve known each other all our lives.

She had the lor mee


…though I am not sure if she enjoyed that though it looked pretty good and I could detect the five spice powder fragrance in the thick gravy. I think I would try that next time but that morning, I had their beef noodles…


…which, thankfully, were not the Taiwanese version with all those preserved vegetables and all. I wouldn’t say it’s the best in town…


…but it’s good and I wouldn’t mind having it again anytime.

As I have mentioned earlier, she went back to Kuching for a few days when the school holidays started and look at what the sweet and thoughtful lady brought me all the way from there…

From Rose

kacang ma leaves and a whole box full of some very nice sio pao (baked buns with char siew filling).

Thanks so much, my friend. It certainly was a pleasure getting to meet you person. Do keep in touch – we’ll get together again sometime when we can. Cheers!

  1. Taiwanese beef noodles…. a YES for me! πŸ˜€

    This one’s more our local style, no preserved vegetables. I think I like this type a lot more.

  2. Those rolls look yummy!

    Gotta LOVE nice people! It’s so refreshing to meet more nice people in life

    Indeed. No man is an island. What is life without friends?

  3. Wah wah wah… an honour for Rose! πŸ˜‰
    Another Sibu blogger, can promote Sibu to others ho?

    Ya, she can blog about places where she goes to eat as well… πŸ˜‰

  4. Good morning!!

    It is nice to meet you too, finally after all these
    Months. Haha. Glad you guys like the goodies.

    Yes, let meet up again. πŸ™‚

    Yes, we must get together again some time. Having visitors around atm, will get in touch with you soon and we’ll arrange something.

    1. I am pretty free since it is school holidays. If you dont mind, I bring along my 2 monkeys and you can babysit them as well. Lol.

      Worry when schools reopen, I will be busy driving and picking them. Haha. But I will definitely make times for my friends. πŸ™‚

      Yes, I’ll be busy then too on my weekend trips to Selangau and back… 😦 I’m fine with kids, no problem at all. πŸ˜‰

  5. Hey .. so you have meet up with Rose! I haven’t as yet… hope to meet her one day too!

    Nice lady, very friendly and easy to get along with. You’ll like her, I’m sure.

  6. Nice meet up with Rose. I haven’t yet too. Probably just need to wait and see. I have no idea when but I’ll be (we plan) to go Kuching for my branch visit there next year, not sure when. STP, how long it takes from Kuching to Sibu? Need to take plane?

    40 mins by plane, 6 hours or more by bus.

    1. Oh, use plane is faster and convenient. Yes, must meet up if can.

      Yup. Our “highway” is in no way anything near what they have in the peninsula…

  7. Yes, I follow her blog and now she has moved to Sibu after reading so many posts about the common eateries you used to go..hehe

    Maybe I will get to meet her next time..

    Ya, I guess you’ll be here come Chinese New Year?

  8. not the best in town?? errr, so which beef noodles is the best in town that you have tasted?? that surely would be very delicious i guess~~ :0

    Those places that specialise in beef noodles would be nice – the broth is thicker and has a much stronger beef fragrance since they use it to cook the beef all day.

  9. Both types of noodles looks good to me. So sweet of Rose to bring you your favourite goodies from Kuching. Bet you have been enjoying them. Nom!!!…nom!!!…nom!!!….

    Of course, they’re very nice. Yet to cook the kacang ma though.

  10. wah..meeting pretty, slim and young lady? I guess everyone quickly “zoom” to her blog now, including me. hahahahhahah

    Good to have another friend in town, so next time you got makan kaki already. She is from where? Kuching? Now move to Sibu?

    I miss Ah Xiang beef noodles.

    Hahahahaha!!!! Don’t think she has many photos of herself in her blog – maybe of her tummy when she was expecting her baby. Hehehehehe!!!!! Yup, originally from Kuching so now living in Sibu. Yes, Ah Sian’s my favourite too…and Melissa’s as well. Definitely a lot nicer than this one – but this one is quite all right, not bad.

  11. What can we do with the ‘kacang ma leaves’?

    Cook kacang ma chicken with traditional white wine and lots of ginger – consumed by Hakka ladies in confinement – most popular in Kuching but this has spread elsewhere and lots of people eating…just to enjoy – like me!

  12. Haha! Guys, Arthur has been exaggerating about me been young, pretty and slim. *blushing* Going to be 40 soon, and having hard time maintaining my skin and figures. Lol.

    But thanks for visiting my blog to some of you. Happy blogging and see you guys around. Cheers!!

    40???? Aiyorrrrr!!!!! I thought you’d be around 30 to the most. Muahahahahaha!!!! Ok, where’s my Christmas present? ROTFL!!!!

  13. Eh thought can see a photo of you 2 pula!!

    No lah, I will take photo if she’s fat and ugly, then I will look nice. She so slim and pretty, aiyor….no lah!!! πŸ˜€

  14. Hahaha now Sibu is very happening. so many famous bloggers there…Mery …Rose…hmmm…come to think of it…all ladies wor……You are lucky to be surrounded by so many pretty ladies

    Hehehehe….like honey to the bees, sugar to the ants. πŸ˜€

  15. Oooo…love sio pao! I did a sneak peek on Rose’s blog and I’ll definitely go back and browse this weekend πŸ™‚

    Go ahead. Make more friends, the more, the merrier…

  16. Nice! I do read her blog too, on and off, although I don’t comment much. I used to work in Kuching so I find it interesting too.

    I didn’t know she moved to Sibu too! Welcome! πŸ™‚
