Once a year, Satok area will be turn into an arena of smells and sights. Its the time of Ramadan which is the month of the Muslim having their Puasa time. During this time, you'll be able to find an array of food that you just can't find during normal time. The smells and sights will make you hungry even before you actually taste the food it self. Name your liking and you'll be able to find it here. Just hope my waist line don't expand after this. Selamat Berbuka Puasa!

Hungry yet?????

all these will be gone forever

What is worse than forcing the folks at the old Gambier Street Market to move out from their live hood? The place that used to gives Kuching its distinctive character and a tourist destination will be demolish to make way for new shiny structures. The reason behind it was it was deemed unsafe and messy. This came from the morons that caused so much damaged to the character of Kuching that many associates with old charm splendor. Kuching will loss its identity as the birth place will be gone forever. It is no wonder why we lost so many tourists in Kuching as this town is becoming more and more stiff and dull. The old charm is all lost because of the Orang Utan who runs the show at the local authorities. I bet real monkeys can do better than this bunch of primates. The thing that I really felt out of place and should be BOMB down is the new State Legislative building. That thing is really an eye sore!

this really should go instead!!

traditional Chinese calligraphy on display

This year festival was scaled down alot compared with previous years. Not much expectation and mostly the usual stuff. I just took a stroll along Carpenter Street and happy snapping pictures like a tourist. The festival still able to draw the crowds despite it only held over a three day period this year. Just wish they could do it better next year instead of scaling it down further. For the celebration this year, I'm going back to the nostalgic era. Instead of going for the modern and fancy style moon cakes, i went back to an old brand that has been around since very very long time ago. Sin Hian Chia or Chin Hian Chia has been around since before i was born. It was the only place where people in Kuching get their moon cakes from at that time. Their range are not as fancy as those modern type but they retain their old taste that brings back memories of sitting around together with the family and kids playing lantern over moon cakes and tea. Besides moon cakes, they also has varieties of traditional cookies and pastry for weddings and full moon.

nostalgic place where folks get their moon cake

the old school

the new style


free them!!!

Malaysian government is going backwards instead of going forward like the rest of the world. Instead of encouraging the people to be more matured, vocal, independent and intellectual, the government is restricting us to be like that and hope we will forever remain as a naive baby. The arrest of three people over the alleged crime of inflicting racial uneasiness was a big bomb to shut people up. The government is trying to tell the people to just shut up and pretend nothing has happen when something is not right with the country. The people of this country can think for themselves what is right and wrong and they are matured enough to speak up. Please let the people grow and don't be a coward of hiding their fillings. If this ISA thing is going through, Malaysia will always remains as a backward 3rd world country.

Bukit Bendera Umno division chief Datuk Ahmad Ismail (a failure in life and as a person himself)

It is a very regretable thing that we have such kind of people in our multi racial country. By making a very shameful and hurting remarks about the Chinese community, he is making himself a fool and enemy not just the Chinese in Malaysia but all over the world. How could we have such kind of ignorant and foolish person in our Government. If he had really research and study carefully which i really doubt by his intillegence, he should have known that without the Chinese community in Malaysia, we won't have such prosperity in our economy and wealth. He should have known also that the origins of the Malay are from the Sumatra Island. His remarks on "Hidup Melayu" makes him a snobbish pig least to say. I really hope stern action will be taken agaist him and he should be ashamed being a Malay himself. Next time if you see this pig face, please do remind him of how stupid he is.
