15 Jan 2019 – Happy Bday To Me
Mon: coffee shop for KCH Laksa with auntieNgor whose father was paternal grandmother CHAN SweeNgor’s half-bro.
Interesting shops around to look-see – fresh 4-winged beans and yellow-skin rumbutans.
EderlyCareCentre where uncleKuun is staying at present – quite a contrast from when I last saw him in SIN, CNY2017. Somehow his eyes glint with smiles to the recognition of Lawrence and I would like to have believed the he was happy to see my bro who is born the same year as he, 1934.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day – Corinthians 4:16
Being Mon, many stalls were not opened at the wet-market, but nice to have a few shots of the fresh local produces from the few stalls which were opened.
Appreciations to the KCH Rotary Clubs, the Rotarians, their family&friends for their presence&support@TelangUsan Hotel for my talk&Power Point Presentation – Hiking Norway – my 2nd Home.
Tkx to Lawrence&Mabel for sponsoring a scrumptious dinner and to Audrey for a yummy BdayCarrot-cake. The ox-tail here is to die for and AyamPansuh (chicken cooked in bamboo) is excellent.
Appreciations to Jack&co for attending the presentation and for Martin’s signed copy of his The 25Best DayWalks in HKG. Looking forward to do another hike there someday!
Tue: the last year for being in the 60s starts today with 364days ahead – bring them on and come what may! Saying hi to a few of my favourite trees here in the heart of KCH.
Lunched@SarawakClub which is ready to welcome the Year of the Pig. Good of Chuan to join us.
Short drive thru’town to check out the construction of the new museum. To say that it is a great contrast to the charming old museum across the road would be an understatement. Not my cup of tea and like the Sarawak State Legislative Assembly Building by the river, this new construction is an eye-sore and completely out of place here too.
Dinner@TopSpot with many kinds of seafood and fresh produces.
After the food poisoning from here some years ago, am taking shell-fish with caution. Everything looks good and Lawrence chose the biggest lobster.
Lobster, ManiChai (finally a pix of this uncooked veg which has been in this KCH trip many times in the cooked version!), +fish&noodles, too much food again. Getting ready to fly back to SIN tomorrow, ie if I survive the night!!!
