I am off to Kuching later this evening.
I am happy.
For being able to come and witness J’s wedding.
For being able to land my feet in Kuching again.
Kuching is one of the nicest cities to visit here in Malaysia.
I enjoy walking in Kuching city, hopping from one place to another, enjoying the surroundings in ease.
I remember walking from St. Joseph Catholic Church towards the heart of the city.
Along the way, we stopped by at the Sarawak Museum, admiring the history that brought Sarawak today.
Then, we walked again passed the Merdeka Palace Hotel & Suites heading to our favorite Kolo Mee shop near the City Police Station.
*mental note: must go there again*
With stomach full, we strolled along India Street and enjoyed sight-seeing at the local handicrafts.
Best thing about India Street, if you are a fan of the artsy-fartsy thingy…you will surely find something nice from here to bring home.
We stumbled upon a painting shop towards the end of the India Street rows, Artrageously Ramsay Ong.
He has a collection of beautiful paintings.
I love his work.
But, being a student that time, I couldn’t afford to buy even the smallest size painting he has in the store.
The only thing I bought was a turquoise color notebook that is made of recycled paper that only cost me RM12.
*mental note: will stop by there if i have the time*
After that, we walked across to the other side of the road which is the Kuching Waterfront.
It is really a long river esplanade and we managed to stop awhile and took picture with some of the passenger boats/sampans that were resting that time.
The Chinese Museum is along the way as well. So, we took the chance to drop by and see what’s in store.
Not much to see.
Perhaps, it is now improved and better.
*mental note: no need to go*
The end of the Kuching Waterfront, then only we headed towards the shopping complexes which is by the way, very near to one another.
So, it is easier to hop from one shopping complex to another shopping complex.
I heard, there is a new shopping complex there.
*mental note: if it’s near, find time to go*
I don’t even remember how far have we been walking that day.
Kuchingites (that’s how you call Kuching people bah kan?)…From St Jo to Tun Jugah mall, how far is that?
(As if you have readers from Kuching, Chegu.)
But for sure, it was the most enjoyable walk I ever have.
Now, let me check if I have enough money to buy that smallest painting at Artrageously Ramsay Ong (if i manage to walk there again).
Speaking of money, my purse is having a big black hole now.
Results of non-stop weddings. (but you enjoy the weddings, right?)
I must find ways to mend this.
Maybe, it is time to check on credit repair to help me cover part of the hole. Ha!
Catch up again on Friday!
