Hui Sing Hawker Center

Hui Sing Hawker Center is one of the oldest hawker food center here in Kuching.
Matterhorn drink and the pork satay the must try here.
Start operating around 5pm everyday.

Matterhorn drink (Meito Hon) - got nata de coco, pineapple, laici, cincau, green cendol jelly and lemon.
It is so refreshing.
In the opinion, the best pork satay in town, 50sen each.

This crispy tomato mee also not bad, it's Eugene's favourite.
We love this place, too bad they do not provide any baby chairs,
else we would have come here even more frequent.

Important message from Astro

With effect from 1 Jan 2011, all pay TV broadcasting services including Astro will be subjected to a service tax of 6% as announced by the Govt in the Budget 2011.

Sekarang service tax dah naik from 5% to 6%,
maksud nyer harga KFC, McDonald, Pizza Hut, etc
semua dah naik la ni, aduh memang bikin pening kepala.
Astro yang sebelum ini tidak mengenakan sebarang tax,
terus melambung ke 6% pulak dah.

Sebelum ni dah membebel pasal harga gula;
bila la nak kaya kalo macam nie..:(

Tourist dies in dog attack

*Scary ehh..*

By TAN SIN CHOW and ANN TAN
newsdesk@thestar.com.my

GEORGE TOWN: An Irish tourist died after he was attacked by two dogs at an organic farm in Teluk Bahang, about 25km from here.

The ears of Maurice Sullivan, 50, were bitten off and his chin was almost torn off in the attack which occurred at about 10am yesterday.

He also suffered bites on his body.

Cruel twist: Jablonska having difficulty accepting the death of Sullivan (inset) Sunday.

The cause of death has not been determined as it is learnt that the victim could have suffered a heart attack because of the trauma.

Sullivan, a volunteer helper, had gone to the farm with his 28-year-old Polish friend Agnieszka Jablonska to photograph organic plants there.

Balik Pulau OCPD Supt Mohd Hatta Mohd Zain said Jablonska had then walked to another part of the farm to take photographs of plants, leaving Sullivan alone before the attack.

“We are investigating why the canines attacked Sullivan,” Supt Mohd Hatta said, adding that the case was now classified as sudden death.

Jablonska, who works as a welfare home caretaker in Ireland, said Sullivan was visiting Penang as a voluntary environmentalist.

Turned against man: One of the dogs that had bitten Sullivan at the farm.

“He invited me to join him. We had earlier visited Grik in Perak and Pahang before arriving here,” she said.

Jablonska said they had known each other for 10 years and dated for a few years.

“I arrived in Malaysia on Nov 11 and was scheduled to leave on Feb 11. Maurice had been here since August.

“I do not want to stay here any longer. I want to leave immediately,” she said.

A post-mortem will be carried out at the Penang Hospital by senior consultant forensic pathologist Datuk Dr Bhupinder Singh at 9am today.
