New Year's Eve for me in Kuching was a Very Wet....... event. Even though it was raining cats and dogs, that doesn't stop us from enjoying ourselves over a good dinner and wine. We went to a Indonesian restaurant called Pondok Laguna located at Crown Square at Pending. It was operated by the same people that brings us Causeway Bay, Shanghai Nite and Lok Thian. The decor was simple but the food was really good! We had so much food that we barely can walk out of the restaurant after the meal. Some of the waitresses are from Indonesia so they are the best person to ask for good recommendations. As usual, the place was packed since it was New Year's Eve. After the dinner, we went back to one of our friend's house for some after dinner drinks. That night, we had 3 bottles of red wine with assortments of cakes from Hilton and a box of chocolate truffles. What a new year it has been and i'm looking forward to the next one with much anticipation!
