Kuching: Change and Unchange

The sun here still rises at 6am in the morning, one hour earlier than West Malaysia, and starts setting at 6pm in the evening.

However, some things have changed in Kuching. I remembered the time I had Sarawak Laksa at the price of RM3.00 per bowl. Now, the cost doubles RM6.00 but with extra ingredients – Prawns, Chicken and Egg.

My Public Bank bankbook is already too obsolete, till I decide to close down the account and my Maybank ATM Card has become a 2-in-1 card with ATM features and also functions as Visa Debit Card.

Gladly, my house compound still remains unchanged with green, green plantation of fruit plants or trees; and also mosquitoes!

My room is still about the same as before it was taken over by my brother when I left for studying at West Malaysia. Currently I took it back, because he is now studying in Australia. Who has the final laugh now, Bro! The reason we love this room was that there is a direct line with different number.

My family still doesn’t have any permanent pet after the death of my dogs – Lassie and Sporty. But strangely we keep having different cats staying with us for a certain period of time (usually a few months), then leaves; and a few days later a new cat appears. The funny thing is that my family call all of them ‘Mimi’! So, introducting, Mimi number….emmm… X (We have lost tracked).

By the way, when I said “Cat City” over the phone I meant my hometown, Kuching. This is because the name ‘Kuching’ without the ‘h’ (Kucing) means cat in Malay language.

I really don’t mean ‘Cat’ adding a 'h' is my hometown.
