Weekend and food

One of the best things about weekend is that you have all the time to think of where to eat and then you can slowly enjoy the food.

While (almost) everyone in Kuching is busy talking about and visiting Kuching Food Festival,  we, on the other hand, try to avoid those crowded places. We make it a point to visit the Food festival once a year, not more than that, kalau tak pergi pun takpe, too many people, too much food, sampai tak tau nak pilih ape da..

Ok, back to my food adventure, here's what we had during the weekend..

Saturday, breakfast at iCom Square, 38 Kopitiam.

Sarawak Laksa - RM6

Kolok Mee, the way Eugene liked it
Dinner, BBQ at kampung.

Sunday, breakfast at Green Height, Double Happiness Cafe.
Mee Sua

Dinner at Vivacity, Sushi Zanmai.
Counting days to the next weekend.

In my garden | Pineapple #4

This is the smallest pineapple I harvest from my backyard garden so far.

Small yet so sweet.

Thought of making pineapple juice with this but while cutting, I tasted one small bite and I was surprise by it's sweetness, we ended eating it just like that.

So, no pineapple juice this time around :)

Blanket 2.0

Emmett outgrew of his blanket that I sew in 2012.

I've decided to make a new one for him.
Using a similar blue cotton fabric, I cut out the angry bird fabric from his old blanket and paste it onto the new blanket.

Emmett loves his new blanket, he called it blanket 2.0, however he said the new blanket is not as soft as his old one.  I said, it will get soft as time goes by 😁
