The Year of the Tiger *ROAR*


What CNY would it be without a visit back to your hometown?
*FYI im a Sarawakian :)*

Met someone familiar in (of all places) LCCT! Ying wai, don't forget our London deal! :)

Plane rides on Airasia is seriously T______T FMLx2. Super small seats with super un-lengzai air stewards. Mehhhh... I can't imagine taking Airasia to Australia. Or anywhere for that matter.

Wearing a spaghetti babydoll top and super short brown pants. I was the only one in the whole plane dressed as if im going on a vacation to Hawaii or something. So beachy (pun not intended) and daring rite?

Anyways, we reached Sibu in one piece. I think it was about 10pm when we touched down. U and Nye-Gung were already waiting at the arrival hall, ready to stuff our big and plentiful luggages into the Myvi and Saga. Yes. They brought 2 cars just to fit our luggages in. KL people don't pack light =D

So bla bla bla, did some catching up with the aunties and the uncles, had KFC for supper and it was off to bed.


Chu yi was spent in Sibu. Went around visiting more aunties and uncles. And we made a pit stop at Medan Mall. Its pirated DVDs heaven! Cheap shit i crap you not! I bought like, er, possibly, roughly, 30 DVDS? hah! I don't know how i managed to smuggle all of it back to KL in the end.

We visited my dad's elder sister (in fu chow, we call her Gugu). And dayum. Her CNY cookies are to die for! And that ikan bilis honey coated watchamacallit snack was soooo good i practically ate the whole tin T___T

Thats when she told us we could have the recipe so we can go home and DIY ourselves. haha.

From the pages of the Sifu.


Apparently, there is this river called Sungai Merah in Sibu, and guess what. The water in the river is seriously Red. My dad told me that it has been red ever since, forever, and little kids like playing there last time. So i asked my dad, "Why is it red?", cause you know, as a science field student, there has to be a reason for the water's redness rite? My dad was dumb-founded by the question. His only response was "hmm. I never thought of that before". And i answered, "so, you could have been playing in some over polluted river for the past 50 years huh. So much for always telling us 'safety first'" LOL!

Now lots of houses was built on either sides of the river banks cause apparently its very 'ONG'.

Nice cloud reflection.


Chu Er, was spent in Sarikei. Woke up so blardy early (7am is considered very early in my books ok!) and drove down to Sarikei.

Again, more uncle and aunty visits.



For those of you who thought Sarawak is all about this:

and wooden house like this:

Let me tell you what a serious misconception you have. We has big brick houses too!

This is my mum's cousin house. So big rite? Nicely furnished as well. Envious.

Will continue the story in my next post :)
