顺其自然

February 20, 2011

事情,总和自己想要的有差异。
很想要得到时,总是得不到。
当不怎么在意时,反而会得来全不费力。

最近,常在想该怎么做。
下一步要怎么走。
走了,我又会不会后悔。
还是,顺其自然。
见一步,走一步。
想那么多,事情也未必如愿。
何必为自己增添那么多烦恼。

我不富有,也不穷

February 10, 2011

常常觉得钱太少,工太多,
埋怨这个,投诉那个。
唠唠叨叨地,庸庸碌碌地,
混着日子,一天天过。
人,总是不知足。
知足常乐,道理人人知道。
能实践这个道理有多少人?
总会安慰自己,钱财身外物,
只要身心健康,家人朋友平安,
那么何尝不是一种福气?

我不是很富有,可也不穷。
也许,我没有大房子,可有个家。
也许,我没有很多钱,可有健康。
当然,钱,永远都是不够多的。
没有人会嫌钱多嘛。
如果钱要来,自然欢迎非常。

猫城之旅 – 古晋 Kuching Trip Day 1

February 5, 2011

My kuching trip was my 1st vacation in 2011.
Well, we had managed to book the AirAsia free tickets during sometime back and the tickets were dirt cheap:P
To-and-fro (and luggage for one way) for only RM60 (2 pax).
So, grab the free tickets whenever you manage to, and it will really save you a bundle of $$$.

Since there were 4 of us, we decided to rent a car (wira 1.5, manual).
The best offer we managed to get was RM100 per day (min 3 days rental).
By the way, the public transport in Kuching is simply hopeless.
Even at the tourism board’s counter, the brouchure already printed the bus service in Kuching is much unreliable and inconsistent. So, don’t bother wait for the bus. It’s more feasible to go around the town/off-town with a car.

1st destination = lunch @ Mdm Tang’s.
In KL, you have Madam Kwan’s. Here, in Sarawak, they have Madam Tang’s.
Not to miss some local delicacies like Sarawak Laksa, Kolo Mee, and etc. which are highly recommended by everyone. Yummy~and satisfying (partly because we were so hungry that time)

Kolo Mee


Sarawak Laksa

It was near to 2pm. Time to check-in to our hotel. We had booked 360 Xpress Hotel with only RM96 per night per room. Quite a nice bargain. A little bit of problems while checking-in….I wasnt sure whether their system confused our bookings with others, or they had over-booked their rooms. Well, not my problem. I just want my room to be ready. That’s all. Finally, we managed to get our rooms and moved on to next destination.

Next destination = Sarawak Museum.
Well, you will not find the exact words “Sarawak Museum”. If u see the signboard “Jabatan Muzium Sarawak”, which means you are there. So, no worries. We were kinda lost during that time. So, we decided to ask the staff at the Dewan Tun Abdul Razak (part of the Jabatan Muzium Sarawak). This friendly fella told us,”Hei…you are here dah~Here is the Sarawak Museum. There are old and new wings, neh…the bridge there, can go over to old wing…. blah blah blah……”.

Most of the tourist attractions close quite early in Kuching. So, if it’s stated 430pm, then around 415pm probably they will be prepared to close. So, make sure you reach the place at least 45 minutes before the closure time. Else, the staffs will tell you….”see ya tomorrow…..”.But one thing that’s good about Kuching’s museums/tourist attractions….THEY ARE FREE…..these days, where can you find so much of free tourist spots? So, take a visit to these places,since they are all free…

We only managed to go into the new exhibition hall (quite interesting walk) and old wing (surprisingly, it amazed me….though the maintenance is bit…hrm…..who cares? it’s free, so don’t complaint).
Later, still raining, we took pictures outside the museums.

Next next destination = Tua Pek Gong Temple.
With the help of GPS, we managed to find it. It’s situated in the middle of the town.
Rainy day…and it was a wet wet day. Quite difficult for us to take picture/walk around.
Nothing much could be done, just walked around the temple, took some pictures, and went to Indian Street.
And again, most of the shops already closed. It was merely 6pm.
Not much shops left open. It was so quiet on the street. oh…..sienZzzzz
How to shop ar??? So, please be reminded to be there before 5pm. Later than that, try your luck~
Nevertheless, even with most shops closed, yet we still can shop.

Tua Pek Gong Temple


Hungry……time for dinner…..
We had our seafood dinner @ TopSpot. A famous place to have seafood dishes.
Our delicious meal – Sambal Belacan Midin, Fried Sotong, Crabs, Teoh Chew Steamed Fish, Garlic Butter Prawn & Curry Bamboo Shell (not sure if I named it correctly). Basically, we ordered 6 dishes, and tasted very very nice oh~~~~~~~Total spending was approximately RM 117.00.
The name of this superb restaurant = Ling Loong Seafood~~~~~YUMMY~~~~~~^^

After dinner, time to get some rest….it had been a long day~
We went back to hotel, and prepared for the 2nd day~

*end of 1st day*
