6 Jan 2012 – Kuching=cat in Malay, thus Cat City!
KUCHING: A student and her would-be rescuer are missing after both fell into a monsoon drain during massive flash floods that left the city crippled. The student (29 )slipped and fell into the drain while walking to a bus stop to wait for her mother after her car stalled in the floodwaters. The rescuer (29) then jumped in to save her but was swept away by the heavy current…
This is so sad. By the time the Tiger landed, the worst floods were over. Today, another wet day but no floods. Good to be with family and eating KCH laksa which is different from SIN laksa. The soup or gravy here is more with a spice base than a coconut milk base in SIN.
And was so fortunate to have the laksa leafs in bloom in Mabel & Lawrence‘s garden. These leafs really bring out the flavour of the gravy!
Pix of the sky outside the flat window in SIN the night before flying off to KCH.
There was this really bright shinning mysterious star.
Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight
