CNY's Updates

1st Feb 09 @ Sunday ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Fern arrived Kuching at 6:45P.M. by AirAsia. After a light dinner at home, went to fetch Evin to meet with Apaw & YH at Kota Padawan. Lter visited an old classmate (Form 5), KC's house. Quite a long time not meet with KC already, almost 9 years since stepped from Secondary School's gate. Well, just knew that she has just married end of yr 08, not been informed.

We had a great gathering, recalled lots of sweet memories during the school time, really lots of laughs; we also noticed that we can't remember some old classmates' names when we came across the Form 5 Class's photo.

2nd Feb 09 @ Monday ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Brought Fern to have a window shopping in Spring Shopping Mall, located at Simpang Tiga. Well, even it claimed that is the largest shopping mall in Sarawak, for me nothing special; it is shopping paradise for most women who shopping as an interest for sure......
a
a
Most restaurants which in the past only available in Peninsula (West Malaysia) are found in this shopping mall, e.g Big Apple, Fish Market, Kenny Roger, StarBuck, and Sushi King. As what I knew, we mustn't visit these restaurants too often, or it will burnt a hole in your pocket... But sometime, we just can't resist the temptation of "eating" and the habit of excusing our self for one or two time(s) or occasionally......so what to do? GAH loh...why should we hesitating? won't spoiled one lah...... :p
So, ehem~ehem~~~ I bought 2 pieces of donuts at Big Apple, and dined in Sushi King Restaurant loh.

Visited Jong's Crocodile Farm, located at 18th Miles, 1KM from Siburan Village (新生村) and approximately 30KM from Kuching City Centre on the Kuching-Serian Road. The entrace fee is RM10 for adult and RM5 for children below 15 (Sarawakian), while for outsiders (Non-Sarawakian), the entrace fee is RM16 each. So before buy the ticket, the receptionist will ask you to present the identity card to determine the ticket type.
a
a
In the farm, you can see crocodiles of different species (freshwater, saltwater...etc) and age groups (from young to old)......Please be reminded that the crocodile feeding show is scheduled at 11a.m and 3p.m dairy, so if your time is not too tigh or too rush, please select a right timing to visit the Jong's Crocodile Farm.

Visited the Kuching Boulevard Hypermarket for the 1st time. Not much different from the Miri Boulevard Hypermarket in the structure & look...just the size is bigger I think...? So, it was very obvious that Fern is not in mood to window shopping at here, as nothing special. I guess only one corner did attract her attention, i.e Momoe Concept Store. She bought a handbag here, of course, I'm the one who pay the bill lah...... >$<
