Kuching Day 12: Everyone arrives

Day 12 in Kuching was the day before the wedding and also the day that everyone from overseas flew in to Kuching. Well, almost everyone, poor Gerry didn’t make it in due to visa problems (stupid Malaysian embassy). It was perhaps the most crushing moment of the whole trip.
In the morning, we brought Jaso and Gill to Yee Ann cafe for some good ol’ Kampua Mee and Laksa. See happy Jaso and my ah pa. One of the best things about this trip was watching Jaso and Gill interacting with my parents, I think it’s safe to say that they really enjoyed each other’s company.

fried noodles

Fried noodles to share. These noodles were great, full of wok hei.

soft eggs

After the failed half boiled eggs that I had at Chong Choon cafe, these were much much better.

mee pok

This was my breakfast, kolo mee pok with char siew sauce. Yums!


Guess where we headed to after breakfast? Yes, none other than The Spring again! Hehe, I took this photo of Jaso taking a photo for the girls from the opposite side of the floor.

yee sze

I met up with my best friend Yee Sze and her freshly minted husband at Starbucks. It’s been more than two years since I last saw my high school mate, it was so good to see her and Shi Chao again. I wish we had more time to catch up with each other but unfortunately she flew out to Penang right after the wedding.
Guess who else we met at the Spring? The boys are back!! And all in Kuching too. Bryan and Calv touched down in Kuching in the morning, it was Calv’s first time in Kuching too.

After our Spring meeting, the rest of us went home for a bit of a rest and a chat, this was when Gerry called to break the bad news and all hell broke lose. SIGH. I wonder whether Gerry will ever get to come to Kuching and try bak kut teh.

We tried to pick up our spirits and met up with the Singaporean relatives  for dinner. Where else but the ultimate tourist hot spot Top Spot for seafood. We had so much food it was amazing. But somehow we managed to polish off almost everything 🙂 Ahhh.. the wonders of Calv’s bottomless stomach.

After that Cheng and I followed the guys to Lime Tree hotel’s (where Brio and Calv were staying) rooftop bar for a drink. It’s a bit ironic but all their drinks (doesn’t matter whether it’s a Cosmopolitan or Mojito) tasted of lime juice!

I came home to find the bride to be and Gill wide awake. ‘I’m too excited I can’t sleep!’ Jo exclaimed. We were all pumped up with exhilaration and just couldn’t fall asleep despite feeling exhausted after a full day of activities. This btw, was the start of my three days cycle of minimal sleep.

We chatted incessantly and kept saying to each other ‘eh, better go to sleep, tomorrow big day you know’. Gradually, we fell asleep in the wee hours of the morning. And then it was really the big day!!
