Kuching laksa at Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap

I have been to Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap in the row of shophouse next to New World Mart in Lutong twice this week as I like the Kuching laksa there. The soup is reasonably thick and tasty. The portion is a bit smaller than the Kuching laksa at 28 Cafe opposite Imperial Mall but at RM6.80, it is 20 cents ...

Ode To My Mum

Mum during her teen days

I lost my Mum to lung cancer on August 30, 2016 and that has made me realise how transient life is. She was still in reasonably good shape albeit feeling tired and a bit breathless when I went to Kuching on August 14. I never expected her to leave us so soon. She was first diagnosed with terminal lung cancer ...

Travel Back In Time In Siniawan

The town had awakened

My brother Kiong brought me to Siniawan after picking me from the airport at about 4.00pm yesterday. I have always been enchanted by photos of Siniawan showing its old wooden shophouses, its colourful lanterns and night market.

Lovey-Dovey Couple’s Passionate Lovemaking

Lovey-dovey couple

I was walking around Main Bazaar yesterday looking for photography targets when I saw this couple acting lovey-dovey. They were kissing passionately oblivious to others watching them. The male, seeing the receptive response from the female, started to mount her doggy style. And soon, they were passionately making love. Their copulation only lasted a few seconds but it was fast ...

Ever Tasted Green Noodles?

Chong Chon Green Noodle

A couple of days ago, my brother brought me to ChicWan in Central Park to try out the Chong Chon Green Noodle. When my brother told me about the green noodle, my first impression was this must be a green consumerism marketing gimmick. What are green noodles? They are noodles made with flour and spinach.
