Hello from Kuching

I had ambitiously planned to blog about my Kuching trip each night after returning to my hotel room, for three nights in a row.

As usual, I overestimate my endurance. Tonight’s my first night here and I am so tired I want to crawl under a rock and die.

Okay, maybe not exactly die. I’m looking forward to a forest trek tomorrow and death would be rather inconvenient.

Sleep would be good. After a long day of fun, touristy activities which started as early as 6 am (and I only slept 30 minutes last night), I am about as exhausted as a three-month-old party balloon.

Except I’m also famished. It is now 10:30 pm.

The reason I’m now unexpectedly famished is because we over-ate today.

Kenny Sia had bought us breakfast (Sarawak laksa) at 11:30 am and then lunch (Kuching kolo mee, rojak, sotong, siew mai) at 2 pm.

Yes, you didn’t read wrong. Kenny Sia was our tour guide today.

Then, after being ridiculously stuffed with two back-to-back meals, we were fed dinner onboard a cruise ship circa 6 pm.

I could hardly eat a bite and felt like donating my stomach’s contents to a herd of cows.

I ended up picking at my dinner, not eating much, stupidly forgetting that I would get hungry later in the night.

Which is why I suddenly found myself starving to death at 10:30 pm. I was already showered and in my jammies. And it didn’t take very long for me to convince myself that I really needed a Humongous Burger from the room service menu. (Yes, that is the actual name of the item.)

In fact, I am now eating my burger as I type this.

I am loving Kuching so far.

I took 300 photos today, a great deal of which I will share with you at such a time as I have no humongous burgers to distract me.

(It’s not really that humongous and I’m getting chilli sauce on my mouse pad.)

Humongous is this:

So, I have decided to just enjoy my holiday. The full story of my trip will have to wait till I’m done with the trip.

I leave you now with a teaser photo:

Makes you think of Goldilocks?
