What did we do in Sibu for the whole day?
We ate and ate and ate non-stop. Trust me, we did. The friends joined my family and I for breakfast that morning.
We ate original kampua for breakfast.
We ate tomato koay tiaw for breakfast.
We ate soy sauced kampua for breakfast.
We did not stop there though. After sending my family back, I brought the friends out for second round – to one of my favourite places since I was younger.
We had fried noodles and fried noodles soup. Both also my favourite dishes. If I am not wrong, they preferred fried noodles, saying that the yellow noodles in Sarawak are so much different compared to the ones in Penang. I guess they are and that is why I do not fancy fried noodles here at all.
When we returned home, my grandmother prepared home cooked for lunch. Of course I sat down and had lunch. I do not have home cooked meals in Penang, alright? So I just had to eat as much as I can when I am at home.
We went out for food hunting again after we had our rest. I brought them to the famous dian bian hu. It is something we cannot find in Penang as well.
Since I know most of them visit temples, I brought them to Sibu’s oldest temple, Tua Peh Kong.
Took some photos at Pintu Gerbang Sibu before I sent my auntie back home and then came out by ourselves again.
I went back to my primary school and wow, though many years had passed and the school had moved to a new place, the building is still there and I heard a familiar voice. I walked towards where the voice came from and guess who I met?
I kindergarten school teacher! I was 5 years old when she taught me. She taught my older brother too. Then she was my tuition teacher when I was 7 and 8. She did not change at all, still looking the same apart from having shorter hair.
Later, I brought the friends to the park by the Rejang River before we ended the day with the last visit at the night market. I guess they were pretty hooked up with the night market here. It was my very first time to be at night market after I left home for so many years. Crazy, huh?
