Miri, Sarawak (October 2019)

On last year, 2019 Deepavali break on October, me and my secondary school best friend, Ryan spontaneously decided to fly to Miri, Sarawak for a getaway. 

We have a best friend, Joven who work there, so he bring us around for this trip. 

Off we go, shall we! 



I miss this window and this scenery a lot! Hope that we can travel soon. 


We reach Miri! On the way to the town for food.

First stop after lunch, we went to the Grand Old Lady, on top of Canada Hill. 


 
The Grand Old Lady is Miri first drilled oil well in the country.

Anyway, the hill top overlook the Miri City and South China Sea, the view is really breathtaking! 



Second stop, we went to a beach. 







My mother hometown is at a kampung called Kuala Besut at Kelantan, and is just beside the South China Sea. Since young, when I'm back to my mother hometown, I always like to walk around the beach nearby there. That's why I love beach. I enjoy listening to the tide wave sound, it really calm me down a lot. 

Next, is dinner time!


Just a simple dinner, but I love the Sayur Midin, is a popular vegetable in Sarawak. 

Day 1 ended after dinner. 

Day 2 is an exciting day, it was the highlight of the trip, Gua Niah. 

But first, Breakfast! 


Dayum! I miss this bowl of hearty Sarawak Laksa. 

After breakfast, Gua Niah, let's go!



Feel so good to be back to the nature!


First cave, Trader's cave. 





Second cave, Painted cave.



Greenery, so nice! 

It takes few hours to hike in and out of Gua Niah, it certainly not an easy hike, there's lot of step of stairs. But we conquer it. It was so worth it to be back to the nature and finally get to see the oldest and biggest cave that I always learn from history book during my secondary school times. 

After an exciting hike, we went for a satisfied lunch nearby. 


This river prawn is so fresh! Looking at it makes me craving for it. 

Destination after lunch was Tusan beach. 


The famous "Horse Head Drinking Water" rock formation at Tusan Beach. Glad that we went there last year. It collapsed on this year February 2020. 


We went to see the huge sea horse statue at Miri Waterfront. 



Sitting by the beach to wait for sunset, so mesmerising!

Next is the highlight meal of the trip, Seafood dinner! 


The prawn, the squid taste so fresh and delicious! Satisfied dinner indeed!

Day 2 end after dinner. 

Last day, day 3 of the trip is free and easy, as we took a flight back in the afternoon. 


Start the day with my favourite Sarawak Kolo Mee! 

Went to walk around the park nearby our hotel after breakfast to catch Pokemon as both of us play 
Pokemon Go! haha.

After that, we went to eat another bowl of Sarawak Laksa before flying back to KL. 


I can eat this every day seriously, so delicious!


This 3 days 2 night Miri trip is really an enjoyable trip. Glad that we make it to this trip last year. This year will need to spend the Deepavali break at home. Stay safe everyone and take care! hopefully, we can travel soon. 

If you never been to Miri, Sarawak, maybe you can consider to plan a trip there after this pandemic.It sure will be a fun trip!

Weekend Late Brunch at Kenny Hills Baker, Ampang

Kenny Hills Baker, a cafe at a bungalow lot at Jalan Ampang with good food and cozy environment.

This is just a sharing from me. Good food are meant to be shared. 

On the first Sunday on August, 2nd August, me, my nephew and his wife decided to go for a weekend brunch. After few months of staying at home, we just want to chill and catch up at a cafe and enjoy a lazy Sunday. Rest assured, we practice physical distancing, wear mask and sanitise always. 

Kenny Hills Bakers is one of the cafe that we plan to visit. So we decided to meet at Kenny Hills Bakers for a late brunch on that day. 

Lucky for us, we just need to wait for a while for a table. 

Did not really took much of the photo of the restaurant as we are hungry for our first meal of the day. 

So, just let the food talk, shall we? 

We order few food for sharing. 

Beef Pepperoni Pizza
Beef Pepperoni Pizza

Kenny Hills Baker have their own pizza oven, all their pizza are handcrafted to order. So pizza is a must to order when you are there. We order the Beef Pepperoni pizza. I love the crispy pizza crust, the cheesy pizza filling with pepperoni is so satisfying. 

Truffle Mac and Cheese

Truffle Mac and Cheese is another house favourite. The truffle, mac and cheese match so well. Few spoonful of this will make you feel a little bit full. I'm not a cheesy person, but I love this mac and cheese as their cheese is just nice, not too cheesy. 

Salted Caramel Apple Cheesecake

Dessert is a must to enjoy while at a cafe. We go for a slice of the Salted Caramel Apple Cheesecake. I enjoy the soft apple, crunchy almond and the delicious cheesecake. 

Banana Berries

All 3 of us opt for smoothies as drink on that day. I go for a glass of Banana Berries. The Banana Berries is very original mix with banana and berries. It's so refreshing. 

We order some pastry too, but forgot to take a photo of it. 

Overall, I enjoy the weekend late brunch. The food was nice, cafe was cozy, of course with the awesome people that i enjoy hanging out with. 

My taste might be different with you, so do go to the cafe to taste it by yourself and have your say. I highly recommend this cafe to everyone. 

By the way, the photo are taken by my niece's wife, Jing Han. She blog too at www.jingcupoftea.com

2020 - A new decade

2020, a brand new decade, and i'm still here at this space writing a blog post. 
This is my uncountable attempt to update my blog. 
Been trying to update this space, but yet is always failed. 
Being a bit of perfectionist in me, i tend to be very cautious on the word i use, thinking too much on what topic that i should write etc. 
But to think back, who actually cares about what i write. 
For me, this is a space for me to jot down my thought, and also an online diary that i can look back always. 
I'm not here to impress anyone. 
So, this time round, i will just write down what i want to write. 
I will not care so much. 
Read it or leave it. 
Is my life by the way. YOLO. 

Looking back, it seems to be that i will always update my blog every 2 years. 
My last post was April 2018. 
And then i stop blogging. 

I can't promise how frequent that i will update this space, probably will update when i feel so. 
Not making this a commitment, but making it as a casual writing space. 
After all, writing is still the best way to express oneself, at least to me. 

Just a random post today. 
Not going to make it longer.

Anyway, have a great 200220! lots of deals around. 


Not promoting, but this one seems to be a good deal. 


A random photo of the recent me that i look so good in the photo. 

Probably a travel post next. Stay tuned!
