3 Feb 2009 – Kuching in Malay means cat!
1 Feb: SIN-the 7th of the CNY also known as 人日( literally translated=people’s day), the common man’s Bday, the day when everyone grows one year older. It was also 16th auntie’s actual Bday. Thank you to 10th auntie who hosted a wonderful lunch with a Lion Dance performance. The evening flight with budget airlines AirAsia to KCH was only 1hr 15mins, and that flew by very quickly unlike my flights across the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans!
2 Feb: KCH-wet and rainy but nice and cool. Visiting relatives and gathering info about Kwong Lee Bank KLB for my next publication, A Family Trail! Another successful talk and many thanks to the Rotary Club, KCH for hosting the AT Thru-Hike talk.
3 Feb: KCH-breakfast with Lawrence, Chuan and Leonard who arrived last night from SIN. Without Leonard, there will not be any decent pictures for my KLB research.
