A Sick that is difficult to cure.

Translation:

– Robin send me a photo of Kolok Mee (a type of noodle from Sarawak. )

– “MeePok put red” is referring to the photo of the Noodle.

– Mee pok = flat noodles. Put Red = Added with BBQ oil

– Teh-C-Peng = Teh-Peng/ Teh-Ais with evaporated milk instead of condensed milk.

Translation:

– Tomato Kuey Tiao = Fried Kuey Tiao cooked with tomato sauce.

– My part is easy to understand. I just RAWR!.

For some unknown reasons, I miss my hometown Kuching a lot these days. I miss the weather, the food, the language/dialect we speak there, the streets, the green sceneries, the colorful sunsets, the food, the 24-hours food courts (we don’t have mamak stalls there), the air, I even miss the unique law we have there, miss my Bobbies (pet dogs), my house, my sofa and living room which happens to be my bedroom too, the food, and of course I miss my family very much.

Miao is Homesick..

Translations:

– Yum Cha. Makan/Minum/Lepak

For those who don’t understand our conversation. I’m truly sorry for it. ^^”

  12. Mentioned laksa I just back from Sabah and only i knew that the laksa in Sabah is equal to curry mee in KL. What shit!!! Then i so hope i can go back and eat but now i m having exam still can’t go out eat yet. I heard the best laksa is in 3rd mile pasar there but only morning time.

    The kolo mee in Sabah is not like Kuching one.. still only Kuching is able to produce kolo mee of the nicest hahaha…

    Reply:
    Hahaha.. really ar? I didn’t know bout that XD
    Hmm.. never heard of that before, the famous laksa I know of its the Golden Arc Big Prawn Laksa in 3rd Mile and the laksa near Tun Jugah and opposite Cutting Edge there.

    Lol, you shouldn’t eat kolok mee in Sabah. Should try their local food instead.

  13. went home when you have holiday then~ Air Asia ticket is not that expensive ma…

    Reply:
    I don’t have any holidays.. and if I happen to have holidays, it will be public holidays which means a much more expensive ticket

    There’s laksa, kolok mee in KL too but the taste.. @@

  20. Meow meow ….. if you happen to be near Kuchai Lama Entepreneurs park, do check out Kafe RAJAH BROOKE. Authentic Sarawakian restaurant. You can test power by speaking Hakka (Sarawakian Slang) there. All the staff and worker there were from Sarawak. All the food and drink you list above got! plus the laksa!

    I am invited to be their food tester last week. Will post up very soon. 😀

    Reply: OMG seriously?!!
    Wahhh then its a must visit place to go..
    Can’t wait for your post ^^

  21. The dish that is relatively close enough to tasting like kolo mee is hakka mee… But still… :<

    Reply:
    Ya that’s what I heard too..
    but i think anything can’t beat the original dish

  22. Miao, come back to Kuching then. I am here. Got no friends here T_T why no friend? ‘Cos I had been studying in KL for 4 years and my hometown is Sibu (no friends also cos all of them dump Sibu to pursue their studies). I am stuck in Kuching ‘cos my parents are working here T_T
    Maybe I should ask your friend, Robin, on where to get nice food. I am still not familiar with Kuching 🙁
    Why only want to know where to get nice food? Cos I love food! XD

    Reply:
    Hahaha no holiday to go back.
    There’re food almost every where.
    What do you like to eat the most?

  23. Anything as long as the food is nice. I am not very picky ‘cos I love FOOD! 🙂
    However, I would really like to know where your friend, Robin, got to eat that nice Kolo Mee 🙂

    Reply:
    Hahah I’m not sure which Kolok Mee he went but..
    There’s couple of nice Kolok Mee in Kuching.
    The one in Tabuan Jaya next to Toast&Toast or something.
    The one in Sekama road near the shortcut to MBKS.
    The one in Green Road, an old shop just opposite the ChongLi apartment.
    The one in Open Air opposite of Electra house.

  24. Totally understand how u feel! Been deprived of kolo mee and laksa for half a year and now I AM BACK! kekekeke~

    yum~~
