On photographing @ Kuching Downtown

Summary : Hello from Meow Meow City


Reached Kuching International Airport (KIA) and we transit to Singgahsana Lodge via taxi... it costs us RM22 for the ride. Checked in and left our stuff in the lodge.. popped over to took our lunch... I had the oily and not tasty Char Koay Teow (Fried Noodles) opposite the lodge as the shop has ran out of Kolok Mee.


After the lunch, we bought some necessities @ the nearby shopping mall and dumped in the all the stuff back in the lodge and started walking and photographing... We walked along the Carpenter Street... Found that the Dewan Negeri Undangan Office was interesting from this angle, so we decided to walk into Bishopgate Street :)

We took couples of pictures along the carpenter street until we came across the junction where the Post office building located... This junctions has marked the new meeting the old...  The Post office building was very beautiful... I toned the color down to shown it's old old building feature ... 

Post office of Kuching... Old Victorian building
Opposite the Post Office, there was the location of the textile museum... The museum building was nice but something actually attracted me... "I thought i saw a pussycat ... yes i did i did... i did saw a pussycat " hehehe... I didn't see a pussycat but i saw two birdie...

Are you guilty? Errrrrr.... guilty of what? Not taking nice picture of this building. hehehe... this was the Old Court House located few steps away from the Post Office and Textile Musuem... It's a nice camwhoring place... Modeling is allowed in the old court house as long as you have your clothes on... No nude modeling allowed in that place ... Blek! Let's camwhoring in Old Court House eh!

Cruising down the Indian street was another interesting scenario ... Lot's of people doing shopping along the street ... lots of bargain going on, of cause deal too... So Deal or Not Deal? You decide! At the end of the street, i managed to see another icon of Sarawak... the State Mosque... An old and unique architectural mosque, same same but different from the Putrajaya mosque.... So what is same? hehehe... color! :p

Kuching people said, "If you did not visit the waterfront of Kuching, you have not been to Kuching... " So how could we missed the famous waterfront of Kuching .... we straightaway headed towards the Kuching waterfront... It was approaching the Sunset, so according to the Kuching Photographer, UncleAwang... the best time to take picture was during the sunset along the river... hehehe...unfortunately we didn't wait for the throughly set as we were too early... We walked towards the Hotel area... snapping away along the way... managed to see the Astana on the other side of the river... 

Astana - Let's visit the Yang Di-Pertua

Waterfront Jetty to go over to Astana 

Please feed me... or else i will eat the living object @ Waterfront...

Walking along the riverside was enjoyable... but unfortunately the river was not very clean... once a while you could actually smell some unpleasant smell from the river.... One big improvement to the Kuching city council... Please Clean the River!

We had our dinner @ Tun Jaguh's foodcourt ... I ordered another not not not not tasty food at all ... in fact it's sucks!... So later we decided to drop by Coffee Beans for coffee as we had a suckie dinner... 

Oily, salty, eriee sizzling beef Sigh~ Sigh~ Sigh~

Despite of the food for our lunch and dinner... we had a very nice and tired day on our 1st day in Meow Meow city... we covered quite a bit of places by walking ... :)

Looking at Kuching, I kinda miss it! It's like... so fun to be just there, relaxing, taking pictures and enjoying the small town! Sigh. :(
