My little Malaysian hometown continues to surprise me. Yesterday when we were driving home, I noticed a sign that said "Fresh Rabbit Meat / Pet Rabbits for Sale!" Imagine my shock! Jeez, I just don't get it - perhaps they don't see it from my point of view, to them it's probably a good business idea, as my dad explained perhaps when the bunnies get a bit too old to be a pet, they become food? Eww...
Talking about food, dad took time off work this week to spend some time with me, and more specifically, ensuring that I get to eat things I have been craving. Yes, food is a very important part of life here. It's a novelty at first to eat like a king - because everything's so cheap! It was only NZD25 approx to dine at a seafood place for our family of 4! However, the novelty soon wore off on Day 3 when I realised once you've finished a meal, another meal is being planned. Haha quite funny.
Another thing I noticed is that wherever you go to eat, it is assumed that you know exactly what they have on the menu. Let me explain - you take your seat, the waitress eagerly greets you with their little pad and pen, asking you for your order. If you ask them to come back, the chances are they don't! So I would suggest visiting Kuching with a local - especially at meal times. ;)
