Sarawak Trip 3: I Ate a Worm

Continue from  Sarawak Trip: Part 1 | 2

This is my mission location!

Sibu Central market is the largest market in Sarawak with over thousand of stalls.

It’s very happening and operates from early morning till evening daily.

It’s kinda competitive too with so many stalls together. There are many interesting things to find there.

First, chickens XD wrapped with papers. This put them in place and less painful for them compare to directly tied up with strings.

Then we have ferns! This is Paku, you can get this in Peninsular Malaysia.

And this is Midin, which the locals pronounced as Bilin. It’s only can be found in Borneo.

I’m not a vege person but i love this a lot. It’s super crunchy.

You can find all sorts of exotic fruits too. There’s this brown color coconut looking fruit which turns out to be a local wild mango thingy. I forgot to take a photo of that.

Oh oh, I found this super cute pink fruit. I bought it and it’s like cream inside, it’s white and very mushy.

Some of the fruits look familiar but actually different.

This is Mountain Durians. Looks kinda like durian; the torns are slimmer and softer.

The inside looks like durian too but i heard it tasted a bit like cempedak.

I didn’t manage to try. No kaki to share it.

And not forgetting this awesome fat worms. The famous Sago Worms. It’s a delicacies here in Sarawak.

As a Sarawakian, I have been searching high and low for this as I wanted to try it badly. Rumors said it is the best worm to eat ever and so I..

 I think this is my first time eating something so raw.

Feeling a bit bad , I went to the temple nearby..

to take photos of it. I’m not Taoist, so I didn’t pray.

I was trying to get up the Pagoda of the oldest temple in Sibu but unfortunately, it was closed.

The temple located next to the river.. and I found something very interesting.

It’s a ship that transport cargoes and groceries to Kapit as there’s no road to the town. It looks like a grocery shop on a ship right? There’s actually people staying in the ship.

Alright ending my Sibu with some normal food to wash off the worm image in your mind.

Kampua again!! I love you kampua.

I love Roti Pisang too.

Halal Kolok Mee!! :D The noodles is good but I’m allergy to beef.

AirAsia Macau Trip: Walking Tour

Part:  1 |  2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Third day yoo!!!! And lots of walking to do.

Like a lot as our first activity of the day is hiking.

Guia Fortress, Guia Lighthouse and Chapel

I heart trees~They are awesome!

Macau, 15 times smaller than Kuching but having the same population as Kuching City.

Look how dense it is OAO.

Luckily, they still keep some hills and parks green.

These are typhoon signs. In the old days, they hang this on the tower on the hill whenever there is a typhoon to alert the citizens.

Guia Lighthouse and Chapel! A very unique chapel, they have Chinese mythical beast drawing in it.

Nana nana na… bagman. Emo Chingy is emo.

.

.

Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial House

After hiking down from the hill, we dropped by at the Sun Yat Sen Memorial House.

Sun Yat Sen, it’s the father of modern China (Taiwan). There are many documents and old photos. If you are into Modern China history, do check out the place. It was a little rush that day, so I didn’t manage to read much of the information.

but i did saw an animal friend in there. The Milu Deer.

It was nick named “Neither fish nor fowl (四不像)” as it has features of a cow, a horse, a deer and a donkey.

.

.

Lou Lim Ieoc Garden

After the short visit, we dropped by at a garden.

and found out…

Okay, it used to be someone’s backyard but now it’s a public garden.

Still it’s crazy! The garden is so huge I almost got lost and took at least half an hour to finish.

.

.

Tap Seac Square

It’s a big empty square with surrounded by important historic buildings.

We didn’t hang out much as it is time for…..

.

.

LUNCH!!!!

Canton at Venetian Hotel

DimSum for Lunch!!!!!

oh wait. what?? Having dim sum for lunch is something new to me.

Dumplings and Dumplings!! Juicy!! \(^ O ^)/

From left to right:

- Another dumpling. LOL

- Popiah

- Braised abalone.

From top to bottom:

- Fresh prawn Dumplings with crispy thingy. :D Yumss!!

- Deep Fried noodles in Cantonese style.

.

.

Awesome dim sum. One of the best I had :D but still Dim sum for lunch is not enough for my appetite.

I can eat a cow.. oh wait. I don’t eat beef.

I can eat a dinosaur!!!

.

.

Dinosaur exhibition at Venetian

And dinosaur it is!! Lol

I always find dinosaur amazing, and how such awesome animals walk the earth in the old days.

I wonder why the artist made dinosaur green or grey?

Who knows, maybe they were colorful?

And T-Rex could be pink or rainbow colored, we never know right?

.

.

After the exhibition, the group split into two. One who head back to the hotel to rest and the other group head for more food.

Taipa streets

Of course, I go for the food. XD especially when I heard what we’re going to have.

My favorite food.

Anyone wanna hired me to pain their wall??

CRABS!!!! I love Crabs a lot. I don’t mind all the hardwork of smashing, peeling just for the sake of the sweet savory fresh crab meat but..

it seems like the crabs from that shop was strong enough for my taste bud. You can try though but it cost RM80 for one.

Speaking of eating crabs, I wonder what was on the first guy’s mind when he grabbed a crab and went: “Oh, let’s cook this hard looking animal and eat. “

Literally means Cat Shit Coffee, it’s actually the civet coffee, one of the most expensive coffee in the world.

What Civet Coffee? Civet eats coffee beans, the best beans only. And the digestion system can’t process the beans, so when it poops, the beans comes out together with the poop. Somehow the biological chemistry in the digestion system makes the beans taste better.

Too bad, nowadays Civet coffee are commercially produce where civets are kept in cage and fed with coffee beans. Hence the beans are not as good as those from wild civet.

I didn’t try tho as I’m not a poop person…i mean coffee person.

I love walking around the streets whenever I go travel, I think one can see and learn much more on foot that in a car.

Someone open a kopitiam like this in Kuching please? :P

Imagine having McD is at your doorstep. :| Not a good thing imo.

We found this street that is full of restaurant and cafes and all of them have their own style of windows. XD

And all of them are very nice :3

After about 30-45 minutes walk, we found out..

.

.

.

we

we walked in a different direction. =.=

After another one and a half hour walk…

Venetian Hotel again!!

we are back at Venetian Hotel again as we missed out the famous Venice part of the hotel earlier.

Fake Venice but very nice!!! Can we have this in Kuching??

I wanna hang out at a shopping mall similar like this!

Can someone please buy that stupid ugly Cityone mall and renovate the inside of the mall into a street?

so much feel~~~

If they have real restaurant and cafes on top of the stores, it would so super duper whooper burger awesome!!

.

.

They provide gondola (boat rides) in the fake Venice river but the gondolier is real and can really sing! OvO Super awesome!!!

After the awesome walk at fake Venice, we went back to our hotel to rest our tummy for dinner. XD

World Fireworks Championship + Buffet at Macau Tower

Dinner below the Macau Tower!! :D

Didn’t had a single shot of the food as I was so hungry XD

I remembered the crab meat pasta was good hahahaha well because it’s crabs :P

Only we going up the tower tomorrow and we ended our night by…

AirAsia Macau Trip: Hotel Tour

Part:  1 |  2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Photos infested post!!!

When we reached the hotel, we were given our room keys. We were given the chance to stay at Sheraton Hotel Macau, the largest Sheraton Hotel in the world.

My card and my name. Yessu, please call me Akira XD

Before entering my room, I did the standard procedure for entering a hotel room.

Anyway, check out my room!!

My room!! Omg big bed!! OAO

Bed testing!!! :D Big and Comfy!!

Can even roll around on it without falling~~

Le bathroom is also big. Such a big room for a small cat.

Thank you~~~ And I have a complicated name. XD And it’s not even complete, where’s my “Jian”??

After dropping my luggage, I went down to the lobby to find the others.

:: HOTEL TOUR ::

It was a bright day, so I found them easily.

Today agenda, Hotel tour! Touring the largest Sheraton Hotel.

Honestly, until now I have not try TWG yet.

They have different themes to go with each part of the hotel. For this section, it’s a oceanic/tropical theme. Hence the fake tropical jungle in the middle of the hall. They even have room perfume/scent to go with each theme. So every corner of the hotel smell differently and accordingly to the themes.

Which happens to be the entrance to the casino. Look at the gambler gods hanging out outside.

The manager brought us to the largest pillar-less hall in Sheraton.

Looks very huge and grand. Having a wedding dinner here would be so awesome but the cheapest table is around RM1500.

Sheraton Suite

c

RM8000 per night. Comes with two rooms, two bathrooms, one dining room, one living room, one theater room and one kitchen.

Family Suites

Comes with one adult room, one children room, one children size bathroom and one adult bathroom. Now parents can do some adult thing without disturbing the kids and also the other way round. hahaha

Facilities

Place to chill out.

Place to relax without happy ending. XD

Place to lie down waiting for hot chicks and hulks. XD while looking at the sky..

Xin Asian Hotpot & Seafood

After the first part of the tour, we were arranged to have our lunch at Xin Hotpot @ Shearton Hotel.

That’s Plum Mocktail on the right which is very good and refreshing :D The little sourness in it opens up our appetite which wasn’t necessary as we were all very hungry. XD

There are a couple of different soup to choose from, to name a few, plain chicken soup, shinchuan chili soup, satay soup, etc.

Seafood~~~ The cat loves seafood!! Too bad no crabs.

That black ball looking thing is actually squid ink squid meat ball.

:: ANOTHER HOTEL TOUR (Conrad Hotel)::

After the lunch, we gathered up again for another tour.

It was a bright shinning day. *koff koff*

I personally like Conrad Hotel tour because the design of the rooms are soo cozy and homey.

Le door. <3

Le living room.

Le bathroom.

Doesn’t feels like a hotel right??

How I wish.. but if it might be a bad thing too as I might just ended up camping in the room instead of going out. Lol

Conrad’s mascot, le duck.

And that ends our Hotel Tour.

We headed to our next destination which located just opposite the hotel.

The City of Dreams.

Next up, the legendary Dancing Water Show. 

To be continued..
