Gong Xi Fa Cai, and Happy Chinese New Year to all you beautiful readers who celebrate !! May you all have a joyous celebration and a wonderful, prosperous and blessed year ahead.
I have been rather busy myself, hence the lack of updates here. For the first 2 days of Chinese New Year celebrations, much time was spent visiting close relatives. I also made sure I spent as much time as I can with beloved mum, and I did take some time showing her some of my street photographs. Her reaction was simple and direct, she asked a question: "So... you went up to a perfect stranger and took their photographs... and they did not mind at all?" Ahhhh... then the conversation started and she learned a thing or two about my not so secret activities in the weekends.
One of the many joys of being back in my hometown Kuching is of course the plentiful local dishes that are only available here. The one favourite dish I must have is none other than the famous Sarawak Kolo Mee. Joining me for supper was Frederick.
Sarawak Kolo Mee is yellow noodles served dry with oil base made of pork lard, onion, garlic and vinegar. It is accompanied with strips of char siew (BBQ pork) and 'bak cho' (minced meat). One of the must have Sarawakian food, I must say. To wash the noodles down, a glass of Teh C Peng was perfect.
Oh, and that CCTV lens 25mm F1.2 on E-PL1 did well in shooting food!! I have Libby to thank for this.
