Kuching getaway (Day 1)

I have been wanting to get away from the hectic work life and studies since may. So this is it. A domestic getaway to Kuching, Sarawak :)

Our flight to Kuching was at 8am on AirAsia. We arrived early, at about 9:15am. 10 minutes early. The first thing we did was went to the hotel to confirm our reservation of room & have breakfast. We were really hungry by the time we reached the hotel. The area that we are staying didnt have that much of eateries nearby. The hotel's frontdesk lady said we have to walk 10-20 minutes to the nearest eatery. We were searching for Laksa, by the way. 

After walking not 10, or 20.. But 30 minutes!!!! We found an eatery at Chinatown. It was a small coffee shop (i forgot the name) but it served kolo mee and sarawak laksa. So we had our breakfast there. After that we walked somemore and went to sarawak plaza, tun jugah and centrepoint. I was surprised that the malls here are not like the ones we have in KK. I could walk around each malls in less than 5 minutes. There wasnt anything much to look at inside. 

In the evening, we wanted to go to bazaar Ramadhan. In search of ayam golek! But it was raining and the bazaar was not walking distance friendly. So we decided to just have our dinner at SCR Express. It was just located below our hotel. Oh, we stayed at 360 hotel Tower B. It was worth every cent. Clean linens, spacious room. The only down side to it is the city centre is 30minutes walking distance. It is ok if you dont mind all the walking. But if you mind, the hotel does provide shuttle bus to the city. Which is a good thing. 

Anyway, below are the food that 2 people consumed yesterday :) the food is so cheap compared to KK. 

Im so ready for day 2! weeeee~
