After spending quite some time and having our breakfast in Atap Street, we took a cab and headed over to Planetarium Sultan Iskandar.
This is the first planetarium in Malaysia.
They displayed a short movie called “The Passport to Universe” which was narrated by Tom Hanks. The show would be displayed even if there is only 1 audience and the entrance fee is only RM 2 per pax. The visual is projected onto the white-domed ceiling and you kinda have to lean your head and body backwards in the revolving chair.
After the 20-minutes show, we walked over to Kuching Civic Center. It was a approximately 3-storey’s height complex and was designed to be somehow like an octagon-shaped tower with a 360 degree view of Kuching City. The scenery up there was breathtaking 😀 I took pictures of Kuching City from every angle of the tower like a mad person. I hope I didn’t miss any view worth for shooting.
It was very quiet up there and I doubt there was anyone up there when we were running around the complex. Ok, enough with Kuching Civic Center.
Since the area was quite secluded and we could hardly see any cab around, we were trying to be adventurous and walked all the way down to the main street. The weather was super hot and we decided to stop by a small chinese stall located near the busy street for a cold drink. I had shaved ice again.
Nothing much to be seen here. We gave these places a try because it was listed on website as one of the must-visit historical places. It wasn’t cheap taking cab from one place to another. You should really consider renting a car if you wish to explore the whole Kuching City. 🙂
After Brooke Memorial, we walked over to Atap Street.
Seriously, I love this street. It was a serene street and everything here was so ancient (in a good way :)). Most of the shops here were run by Chinese elders. I think they have been here since they were young. Maybe they have been here even since their grandparents or great grandparents’ time. Anyways, in my opinion, Chinese culture is very well-maintained here.
It was almost 11 a.m. when we reached Atap Street and we hadn’t had any food then. So, it was time for food hunting.
After having our brunch, we walked along Atap Street. I had an indescribable feeling as we marched on and I took as many pictures as I could to capture my memories here. I was so glad I actually spent time exploring Atap Street. It was so much different from hectic streets in KL.
I visited Kuching some time ago back in June 2011, on my birthday week. It’s kinda considered as my first trip after stepping into working life. It’s a woman’s nature to overspend, that’s why I only have limited budget to travel locally. Anyways, Kuching is a good place to travel 🙂
The city is not too hectic, in fact, it was quite peaceful and quiet during the weekends (as described by the taxi drivers in Kuching).
My friend and I stayed at 360 Hotel for the whole trip. It was not strategically located and most of the places we visited weren’t within walking distances. Nevertheless, it was a good hotel 🙂
We started first day with Brooke Memorial.
This historical place has turned into a flea market where the locals sell souvenirs to tourists.
Volkswagens were displayed in front of Brooke Memorial too.
I’m back…well, kinda. It has been quite some time since I last updated my blog and I kinda miss throwing-my-feeling-into-the-public here.
Life hasn’t changed as much as I hope it would be. I had literally given up my life since a few months ago. This job has plunged me into another hell. I didn’t have a choice but to stay put. After being hit by the reality for who knows how many times, I finally know how stupid it is to have faith in people and being betrayed and disappointed over and over again.
At some point of my life, I hope that my life would be taken away by a car accident. This saves all the hassle to buy drugs. God answered “No” heralded it is not ‘the’ time yet.
What I really want at this point of my life is a new job with better pay so I can gain more financial freedom and realize plans I have for my life.
Latest Myvi Limited Edition has become such a hot topic in town. I have seen one so far. Almost couldn’t recognise it, simply because the colour was not striking enough. Well, I’m not anti Myvi-LE-pink-colour, just that it doesn’t attract me like my red Myvi does 🙂
Don’t you think they gave you the same feeling? It does, to me! Sirap bandung was the first thought that came into my mind when I first saw the latest LE Myvi cruising handsomely along the miserable highway.
