10 OUTSTANDING REASONS TO MISS SARAWAK


Memento

It took me a while to post an entry bout my trip to Sarawak
Day to day I’ve tried…
but I don’t know why
I couldn’t write a bloody word to describe the trip
Maybe I’ve lost perfect words
Maybe it’s too personal…

It came to realized
that we will see 2009 in 48 hours
I guess this is the perfect moment to reminisce
One of the greatest thing happened to me this year…
The 6 days trip last august was a blessed
It’s emotionally engaging
I guess below are the reasons why I missed it now.


1. THE FLIGHT



7 august -ak 5214 - 7.40pm

It’s my first time..
Can u blame me for being overexcited?
Seriously I feel like a 7 year old kid...
Everything is damn interesting
Walaupon gelap gulita...
aku asek pandang luar tingkap jeee
punyela sakai perangai
and I’m glad my first time was with my surfacing;)


2. THE TRANSPORT



Si Kancil Putih

Imagine a kancil that out of fuel
just 20 minute after we left the airport
Seb baik la kartik ade kan
Kalau tak sangkut la tgh2 kuching tu

But the car really helped us a lot
Fuel saver and ‘spacey’ for big guys
like my surfacing n megat
Bile due2 dok depa...bahu ngan peha berlaga2
Comel je haku tengok


3. THE FOOD


Clockwise: jelly fish, sotong kangkung,
mi belacan,rojak buah(swee kang)


Freaking awesome hot delicious foods!
Studying there for 3 years
really gave advantage to my surfacing & friends
to explore the best food in town.

The first night they took me to area Masjid Kuching
I had the best ayam penyet!
I’ve searched at KL…
I’ve tried wong solo, penyet ria but it’s never the same
The taste is unforgettable


From top: Raja ayam penyet
(dah licin aku kerjakan..hihi)
nasi ayam butter, menu yang comel


Then we went to Swee Kang…
Chinese own home restaurant...
it’s incredible
Datang je penuh gile orang
Berdiri dalam 5 min baru dapat tempat

Jellyfish, sotong kangkung, mi belacan,
rojak buah & air “white lady”
It’s hard to describe whether its ABC or laichikang
cuz its just different
u will never taste this at KL


From left: laksa Sarawak, chicken wing, “white lady”

The famous drink is definitely Teh C Peng
I had it all the time from day 1
Die mcm teh susu yang letak gula melaka..
sedapp gileee

I also had laici susu at Unimas…
And the best chicken wing in Malaysia
(exaggerate betol kan)
But seriously, it’s big, yummy and tastier
Sesape pegila try kat other side of waterfront

I also tried the rest of Sarawak Food such as
Laksa Sarawak, mee kolok & kek lapis!
(superman pon kata yummy)
The only thing I regret was not able to eat seafood at Topspot
Maybe next trip mase Rainforest ke ;)


4.THE SHOPPING


Bata & Sarawak Plaza

I wish I had more money…
Enough said
Mane nak beli barang2 sarawak origin nye
Yang dekat shopping complex lagi

I bought handbag, shoes
I’m that close to buy
a half price Duty free guess watch


Tun Jugah & The BEST T-shirt shop in Malaysia

There’s a lot of shopping complex around
Sarawak plaza, Tun Jugah, Kuching Plaza,
The springs, wisma satok
Maybe it’s not that huge...
but it definitely has something to offer

Like this one shop (Rupert) sells great price
brand new imported comic, band t-shirts
Range RM70-100
KL Pon takde ni!


5. THE ETHNIC


Rambang mata gilee

Everyone knows I go crazy
for ethnic/ bohemian stuff
n Sarawak is bloody famous for its ethnicity
from accessory to display

Again I wish I’m filthy rich
so I can buy every damn accessory from head to toe,
the cool craft handbag, Headhunters t-shirt
(nice graphic t-shirt cost around RM35-75)
tikar Sarawak, vase, ethnic instrument
nak semua lah!


Ethnic café & one of the shop at Kuching
Tapi beg aku tuh bukan Sarawak ye


I managed to buy a few stuff
such as bangles, tudung,
Sarawak pen & RM 10 wooden watch.


6. THE WATERFRONT


Waterfront Kuching town & opposite

Beautiful view Day & Night
I felt like in ‘Before Sunrise’
The time we walked at waterfront around 9 am..ngee
Dengan sampan yang ada iklan Hotlink kat atapnye…
Tapi x sempat naik sampan tambang 50 sen tu…


Waterfront the other side

Waterfront the other side
give a good view of Kuching Town
Especially at night

The best part was one of the nights
The whole Kuching & Miri blackout for 2 hours
It was eerie & exciting at the same time
Traffic Jam all over the place
cuz everyone wanted to get out of their hse

Our super Kancil suddenly out of gas
Hadoi memang klaka bleh wat citer zombie
What we did was had our fav chicken wing
at the other side of waterfront
Blackout2 pon makan je dok pikir!


7. THE CULTURAL VILLAGE


Signage Cultural Village

We took a 45min travel by car from Kuching Town
This is a must go place for a first timer at Sarawak
I went there with hopes n dreams
to see different cultures in Sarawak and guess what…
It’s closed!


ngan batu takde kepala ni pon jadilaa

We were there at 4pm
it’s already closed for visitor.
Gigih je kita pegi sane eh Megat …
last2 x dpt masuk pon…
Now you know why all the pictures at the entrance ye…
Mock-up je tuh! Ngeee


8. THE BEACH


Damai Beach Resort

Frustrated with the closed cultural village
We went to Damai Beach Resort
to relief the 45min stress
Actually it’s not for public unless u stay there
But what the hell kan..frust la katakan


Gunung Santubong ke Sejinjang ntah

So there you go a bunch of pictures at the beach
Menyesal plak haku x bawak baju spare
Kalau tak selambe je aku mandi manda situ

Damai Beach Resort is be-au-tif-ful!
I promise myself I will stay here
the next trip to Sarawak


we were here!

Air die maybe tak secantik redang ke ape kan
But it’s worth it
We really enjoyed the scenic view
My Surfacing said we have to be careful though
cuz there’s a lot of dangerous Jellyfish & Catfish


9. THE FRIENDS



Bodyguard2 Tersohor

His friends is my friends
I love their company cuz ade je
mende2 yang akan dijadikan bahan lawak
Pendek kata hidup aku ceria dan sentiasa gembira

Thanks guys for ya’ll effort
showed me around the place n stuff
You know who you are...

To daus & Ajeez…
I will never forget what happened at McDonald Kuching
for the rest of my life…hahahahah


10. THE SICNESSURFACING


At Unimas & Waterfront

To go for a trip together
is our dream since we knew each other
This is the first time after 7 years…
We had a great time together
The best time of my life


At the other side of waterfront

I just love his patience & concern
Tell me to try this…
to eat that

He wanted me to experience
his 3 years of living at Sarawak in 6 days
“This is where I eat during lunch...
where I bought t-shirt, Where we hangout on weekend,
my hostel, my shooting location…”



sicnessurfacing

He did a good job taking good care of me
So tell me my dear surfacing…
Do you really want to see
Lamb Of God live at Jakarta
on 9th march 2009 without me?
Tibe-tibe cerite lain kan...
ngeee




Sexy Back


So there...
the 10 reasons why I miss Sarawak
I definitely will go there again…
Even though my Surfacing is here now

Probably for the Rainforest World Music Festival
(Been planning for years)
And for the delicious foodies…
See you again cat town!

jom datang sarawak!

1st perkataan aku belajar kat swk ialah gonjeng. di jadikan 2 perkataan , "kitak gonjeng".

memang takde makne pon "gonjeng" tu sebenarnye. nampak kat menu makanan "nasi goreng gonjeng". pastu jadi "kitak gonjeng".

tapi ayat paling famous ialah "asuk", jadi aku cuba manipulate balik pembelajaran aku terusnya menjadikan "kitak asuk".

ko tahu kan ape tu "asuk"?
