Travelling by land to Kuching has always been a fascinating experience. You can't afford to miss it out if you have never gone through it.
When I planned for a two-day business trip to Cat City, I decided to drive rather fly. Land travelling is alluring in many ways on this Land of Hornbill.
We departed at 7:00 am from Premier Hotel which was a little bit late for this 6-hour driving journey. On the itineary, Sarikei was our first stop.
Sarikei, a growing town, is not too far off the main road. The location is, therefore, strategic enough to take in long-distance travellers for a stop-over. In comparision with Sri Aman, Sarikei is better off in this sense.
We popped in for a quick breakfast with no extra time for other pursuits. When I checked out with a blogger in Sarikei www.wongsiewping.blogspot.com , a few recommendations were put forth for eateries of fineness in local cuisine. But, alas, my drop-in was very much just touch-and-go, so I could not afford the luxury of sampling them with ease and leisure. For that I need a food savouring trip with some other bloggers to Sarikei to poke my nose near to every dish and dip my finger in to whet my appetite.
We chose the food centre (gee, there is absolutely no official name for it after years of operation) where food varieties are aplenty. The interior of it is pretty spacious and hygienic with good ventilation, making it a place of comfort for a decently priced breakfast. I placed order for kampua and teh chi kosong for sampling. Woah, the taste turned out to be quite appetizing and the serving time was surprisingly satisfying. I gave a plus to the stall.
We set out on our onward journey after our Sarikei experience!
