Time really flies in a blink of an eye, isn’t it?
When I came back to KK last Friday, I thought, “Woohoo! I’m gonna be on a week holiday!”.
Tomorrow…well, it is Back To School tomorrow.
I didn’t even realize a week is finally reaching the end.
Oh well, like Syura said before she went back KL, ‘Time flies when you’re having fun.’
I guess, I had quite a fun week to notice the days passing by.
*Thank you Lord*
I promised you guys pictures of my recent short trip to Kuching.
Well, I have a few with me.
My camera’s memory card went full just taking pictures of the couple’s church wedding ceremony.
So, I have to transfer the pictures to J’s lab top and she will only be back from Kuching by midnight today.
That means, more pictures will only be posted the sooner by tomorrow evening.
Anyways, although our visit was quite tight up, we enjoyed every minute of it nonetheless.
We arrived at Kuching International Airport around 6, Wednesday evening.
Then, we were brought to J’s in-laws’ house to have our dinner.
I love the food.
Home cook food.
Pucuk ubi, sambal belacan, boar meat cooked with soy sauce and some other local delicacies that I missed out on the names.
J’s MIL and eldest SIL took the hard work to prepare the dinner for us.
Right after dinner, we went to check-in at the hotel, Harbor View Hotel which is located just in front of Kuching Waterfront.
J stayed with us that night.
All four of us (despite T saying she was really sleepy) stayed up till 2:30 a.m. helping J with final preparations of her wedding.
Actually, that final preparation was only the bridal car decoration.
But we had so many things to catch up that an hour work turned to 3 hours of giggling, laughing, laughing and more laughing.
The next day, we woke up at 7 a.m. to get our Mee Kolok fix just below the hotel.
It would be like committing a sin, coming to Kuching and not try the famous Mee Kolok.
Despite many food operators in Sabah claiming that they serve authentic Sarawak Mee Kolok, nothing beats the authenticity of eating Mee Kolok here , on its’ birth place. Ha!
Breakfast consumed, we then rushed back to the hotel to get ready for the church wedding ceremony.
The wedding do was celebrated at St Joseph Cathedral, Kuching.
A simple do with just a few family members and close friends but very meaningful event to both J and S.
After the church wedding, we went to the groom’s family resident to enjoy our lunch.
Again, it was home cook food.
Not to waste much time, we rushed back to the hotel, changed into our most comfy outfit and went down to jalan-jalan.
We only had about 2 hours to go sight-seeing so the nearest we could go were Kuching Waterfront towards Tun Jugah shopping complex.
Surprisingly, Kuching Waterfront looked a bit dull compared to what I remembered few years back.
We didn’t linger much there.
We went to India Street instead to find the famous Sarawak Kek Lapis.
MD and I thought we could share the ‘Buy 5 for RM45′ offer.
And that’s about our sight-seeing.
Just went buying Kek Lapis. Ha!
By the way, we did pass Artrageously Ramsay Ong’s shop.
But we were running out of time and the fact that I was holding a paper box filled with Kek Lapis didn’t please me to go inside.
Next time again then.
J and S’ wedding dinner reception was held at Chef’s Delicious Restaurant, somewhere in Batu Tiga.
It was a small wedding dinner with just 70 attendees.
How did I go with my emceeing job?
It went fine of course.
Well, with just less than a hundred to entertain, it wasn’t that bad lah.
It is easier to get to their attention and gets feed back from the floor.
In fact, I kind of enjoying that moment. Ha!
Unfortunately, we had to leave the dinner early since our flight was at 10.20 p.m.
I didn’t even get to change my dress but managed to slip on my flip flops before boarding the plane.
It was just a one night stay in Kuching but being there for a good friend’s wedding and getting really involved with it, it was one satisfying short trip I ever have.
To J and S…congratulations again on your wedding day.
And J, like Fara said, it is good to know that you have found love again.
