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.

Macau Trip

Air Asia Macau Trip Finale: My love, Portuguese Tart

Part:  1 |  2 | 3 | 4 |

Honestly, I still miss the hotel room a lot T3T. Highly recommended for those who gonna visit Macau. Sheraton and Conrad Hotel is comfortable.

A few more stops to drop by before we going back to Malaysia.

Macau Tower Bungee Jump!

First stop, the famous Macau Tower and the location for the world’s highest bungee jump. A freaky 233 drop.

It was early so it’s rather quiet.

Haze from China :(

MonsterMiao VS Salted Egg Man

(…)

My best travel mates ever.

An interesting sign I found on the glass of the tower. XD

Another floor up is an semi open deck.

Quite a cozy place to chill out.

Yes, this is where people pay one and half thousand to jump down from a tower. And it only takes 4 seconds to reach the bottom.

If you have no money, I provide free jumps without gears. XP Only from Miao XD

You can opt for the skywalk which is cheaper and less scary.

See! even kids join the fun.

but still it is very tall. O_O

Our Chingy here is the weird one.

And in a blink of eye…

she signed up.

See how happy she is. XD

Crazy Dragon Chingy.

This is the machine that gonna save the jumper’s life.

The best way to enjoy a friend experiencing suicide…is with a coke..not coca cola but..

Karma Coke.

Love the design of the bottle :D

and here she goes…

burning RM300 each second down. XP

………………………………….

Post jump interview:

Me: How is it?

Chingy: Okay okay only. Not that scary. I wanna go other place and jump.

Me: . . . . . . . . crazy.

.

.

*put the crazy Chingy a side* It’s time for Lunch!!

Miramar Portuguese Restaurant

Last Portuguese meal before we leave.

Olive!! I don’t like it hahahaah

The girls love it tho.

Salted Fish Mashed Potato. Like salted fish, it goes well with rice.

Salad! …with olives.

tomatoes, carrots, onions yay!!

olive …nay hahaha…

I believe this is beef. I don’t eat beef. Allergy.

Non halal!!!

Roasted piglet. Poor piglet, didn’t even had the chance to attend kindergarden.

I’m not really a pork person either hahaha..

OMG OMG!!! CRABS SALAD!!!!

C.R.A.B.S !!!!

a little sour tho because of olive =.= but still CRABS!!

I thought this will be favorite dish until..

this showed up. Seafood Porridge!!

Fish, Prawns….CRABS !!! OMG CRABS!! CRABS!!!!

One spoonful and you feel like you’re doing mud bath with seafood. Yums!!!

Can I have this for breakfast everyday? XP

Fruit Punch to end the meal.

We’re sooo full after the lunch, can barely move. What more to say about putting another spoon of food into our mouth.

.

.

.

That’s what we thought. Then the tour guide told us she’s bringing us for Portuguese Tart.

What?? Heavenly Portuguese Tart!!!!!!??

What is “full”? No such word existed in my dictionary before. Lol lol

and off we went.

Located near Taipa, the Lord Stow’s Bakery. Freshly made Portuguese tarts! I bought like a dozen of it.

Portuguese Tart has always been one of my favorites. I don’t eat any other tarts beside portuguese tart.

So how could I wait any longer, right?

I took a bite straight after getting my tarts.

It’s Fabulous!! I think I can finish the whole one dozen on my own.

Soooo good!!!

.

.

I think I had fall in love with the Portuguese tart. <3 Miss it soo much right now while blogging this.

.

.

Taipa Houses Museum

Last stop of the day and the trip, the Taipa Houses. These houses used to be the admin offices during Portuguese colonization time. Glad they maintained and well kept the place. Now they are all museums and galleries. I think it would work great as cafe or restaurant too. hehehe

It’s quite a famous location for the locals to take wedding photos. That day we bumped into 3 different pairs/groups. And most of them looks very young, younger than me. In my cat opinion.

Why you all get marry so soon?? Even my readers are getting married one by one. O_O

You can see from the photo bus it’s actually drizzling and I took the photos in the rain. LOL

Just for you all. See how nice I am. XD So please comment, like and share my post. :P

After lurking around for a while, we were sent back to the airport. Good Bye Macau!

.

.

………………………………………….

Well that’s end of my trip to Macau. :D  Check out my other Macau post if you haven’t.

Part:  1 |  2 | 3 | 4 |

If you’re interested in Macau, feel free to book your tickets now at AirAsia

and if you need data when you’re there, do check out TuneTalks Data plan. They have a few plans for you to choose from as Macau’s own operator data is actually rather pricey.

Beside of the good pricing from Tune Talk,  you can actually use the balance when you’re back in Malaysia, not wasting the money. XD

Thank you Macau Tourism, AirAsia and Tunetalk for this amazing trip! ^v^

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…
