Sarawak Road Trip 2: Sibu Street Walk

Sarawak Road Trip: Part 1

A little dark secret of mine, I have a habit to wake up super early in the morning XD. Nowadays at 6.

Anyway, be hold.. Sibu town. 3rd largest urban area in Sarawak. Sibu town is also called Little Foochow as it is majority populated by Foochows, the default lingual franca here seems to be Foochow dialect too. 😐 And I don’t understand a single word.

Morning old town of Sibu!

Morning Mr Swan!

Swan is the symbol of Sibu, if not mistaken it was due to that the majestic Rajang River resembles the Swan River in China.

An empty park. A good open space to practice Tai Chi.

Sibu Speed Boat Terminal, you can get to Sarikei , Kuching and Kapit from here. It is also the only gateway to Kapit town.

Saw this old school bus outside of the terminal 😀 If  someone refurbish it a bit and it will be a very vintage hipster bus. > v <

I love street walks especially in old towns and cities where I can see old the old heritage buildings.

Sibu does have a lot of old buildings but not enough old, maybe some have renovated and removed many original elements.

I like those with many small details.

  Something like this and those older than this period.

Usually…

And I found many mini shops in there, old school shops..

le barber shop. > v < Open shop style.

and look, Wafu; look, Pafu, warm towels!! The best part of having a haircut when I was a kid.

The great thing about going on a random walks like this is…

finding treasure unexpectedly!!

*correction : it’s Super Duper Whooper Burger Soft*

Anyway, these are the softest buns I ever had. OMG > v < So fluffy so good. I wasn’t expecting this and only bought two. T3T Whoever is coming from Sibu, please bring me a dozen of these!!

I have my buns only when I reached home as I was saving my stomach for Kampua. My mission for the morning! 😀

In Sarawak, there are two types of dried noodles that populate the region, the Kolok Mee and the Kampua. Here’s a map of how commonly the dish is found in Sarawak.

A Sibu is the capital of Kampua. With no researched done, I walked randomly to find a coffeeshop with massive crowds or lines. XD

but still thank you good uncle!! sorry I don’t know how to say Thank you in FooChow.

Tada!! Kampua!!

It was real good and it’s only RM2.20!! Cheap daoo!!

P/S: There’s halal version of this dish, so do come and try even if you’re Muslim. Actually, in Sarawak we have halal version of all dishes. lol

Auntie is very shy. XD

Actually, I have another mission in hands for that morning beside hunting for Kampua.

Coming up next: The Hunt for Sago Worm > v < with video (maybe).

Sarawak Trip

Haru at the Sarawak Layered Cake Shop

There’s a village across the Sarawak River, and there lies one of Kuching’s famous Layered Cake.  And being in Kuching, one should really go and try the cakes.

So I brought Haru over when we were there…

The kid really did that!! I was like What The Meow!! He really taste it and put it back when he does not like it.  I think the kid learn from his parents because I see some parent tends to eat what their kids don’t like to eat. 😐 Seriously, parents stop doing that.

Well that’s not the shocking part…

because just right after that…

Haru.. if you’re reading this. Hmm.. ehh… Sorry, I was too late to inform you and since you already ate it, I think it’s best to keep it a secret then.

Sarawak Layered Cake

Sarawak Layered Cake is one of the must eat food in Kuching or Sarawak. Sarawakians eat and serve this food mostly during festive holidays like Chinese New Year, Hari Gawai, Hari Raya and even Christmas.

The Layered Cake is actually originate from the neighbour Indonesia but revamp and re-modified with a touch of Sarawak local food like Horlicks, Carbury and tribal design, Pua Kumbu.

There are two types too, dry one and the moist one. (And no, it’s not from the saliva. hahaha) I personally prefer the moist one and served cold :D. Oh, I got the photos from Dayang Salhah, the shop I always visit since the boss always ask me to eat for free. hahah
