Hello everyone! :)

Are you ready for summer? 🏖️

Well, change of weather might sounds irrelevant to those who stay in tropical weather (yes, that's me!), nevertheless you shouldn't skip sunscreen anyhow.

Today I will be reviewing Soft Airy UV Essence by dear, Klairs (or, better known as Klairs). I have been using it for a good three months now.

[Food Court] Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri

Good evening everyone!


Instead of the usual food courts concepts in shopping malls,
do you know that Miri has a lot of food courts in shoplots?


Today I am going to introduce you a rather new food court,
so happen it is located 3-mins drive from our stay.


It's Gen2Gen, better known as 代代香传飲食坊 in Chinese.

- Address : Opposite Airport, Miri, Sarawak
- Facebook -


Yes, I did it again... forgot to take the front view of the food court... urgh :s






The food court area is consists of four shoplots.
About 10 to 15 food stalls inside.
From Sarawak kolok mee, to Hong Kong style chicken rice, to buns and pastry... you name it.


I won't bore you with long introduction.
Let's see what they have inside. Come!



- Sarawak Kolok Mee (normal) 普通干面, RM3 -

Kolok Mee, Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri


Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri


It never fails to amaze me that you can actually buy a bowl of mee with just RM3!!
Of course, the portion is smaller than usual, but still.
If you are a small eater, I think you will be full with a cup of coffee.
Kolok mee from this stall is a bit dry, but I don't mind because taste wise, it's okay.



- Homemade Steam Rice Rolls with Pork 叉烧猪肠粉, RM4 -

叉烧猪肠粉; Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri


Freshly made upon order.
The steamrice rolls are very thin and soft..
Along with the soy sauce and minced pork, lovely dish!!!
Definitely want for more! :9
This is from the stall beside Sarawak Kolok Mee.



- Fried Manicai Meehoon 马尼菜米粉, RM5 -

马尼菜米粉; Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri


Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri


"Manicai" is also known as the vege which we call "Sabah sayur manis 树仔菜".
It's something new to me as I never encounter this dish before.
To be honest, I don't find it any special after tasting it.
Just okok.



- Ding Bian Hu 鼎边糊, RM6 -

鼎边湖; Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri


Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri


"Ding Bian Hu" is a kind of traditional Hokkien food.
It's similar to porridge, but only they use rice cake instead of rice.
First time trying this as well.
The taste of white pepper is a bit strong.
Besides that, I think it is very much like porridge.
Worth the try, but not quite my taste.



- Kueh Chap 粿杂 (small), RM6 -

粿杂; Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri


Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri


Another traditional Hokkien food.
It smells very similar to Bak Kut Teh, as you can probably tell by the colour of its soup base.
Taste wise, it's much lighter and subtle than Bak Kut Teh.
A dish that consists of Kuey Teow, pork meat and half a hard boiled egg.
I know it is not comparable to Bak Kut Teh,
but I would prefer the that than Kuey Chap.



- Roasted Duck 烧鸭 and BBQ Pork 烧肉, RM10 -

烧鸭烧肉; Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri


Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri


Just aim for food tasting, we asked if they could serve the meat without rice.
And this is how a RM10 portion looks like (as above).
Roasted duck and BBQ pork are some of my personal favourite.
I would say, the food taste good and the price is reasonable.
If you are not so adventurous on trying new food, this stall here is worth trying.



- Kompia 光饼, RM3/3 pieces -

光饼; Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri


A local delicacy from Sibu, Sarawak.
Bun roasted in kiln and cut half to be filled with minced pork.
If you haven't try this before, do give it a chance.
Since it is fresh from the oven, I think it tastes better.



- Assorted Traditional Chinese Small Bites, RM3/3 pieces -


芝麻包和萝卜糕; Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri

 Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri

For those who wants to grab fresh bread or pastry, there is a bakery shop inside.
The Twin Brothers Patisserie.



Gen2Gen 代代香传飲食坊, Miri

Drink stall is located in the middle of the food court.
Order and pay at the counter.




The day has only just started, yet we had so many and different kinds of dishes already.
Full and satisfied.


My personal picks are the Homemade Steam Rice Rolls, Roasted Duck and BBQ Pork.


All the food above mentioned represent the local eateries,
and I would recommend you to give it a try, at least.
Better if this is your first time visiting Sarawak.


That's all for now.

[Restaurant] A Bui Kitchen, Boulevard Commercial Centre, Miri

Good evening everyone!


Yesterday we went to local restaurant which serve good homely food at really reasonable price!
Can't wait to share this with you here.


It's A Bui Kichen at Boulevard Commercial Centre.

- Address : 2436, 2431, Jalan Boulevard 2a/1, Boulevard Commercial Centre, 98000 Miri, Sarawak.
- Operating Hours : 10AM - 2:30PM, 5PM - 10PM (closes on Mondays)
- Contact : 010-981 3577


According to my sister, currently they have four (4) outlets in Miri. Impressive!


Probably too exhausted throughout the drive,
it slipped my mind to take photo of the restaurant itself.. urgh :s



Boulevard Commercial Centre, Miri



The photo above was taken from the restaurant,
showing the building opposite.


The restaurant has both indoor (air-conditioned) and outdoor (open air) dining.
It was packed with customers by the time we arrived.


Without further adieu, let's dive into the food!



- Pineapple Fried Rice, RM10 -

Dinner at A Bui Kitchen, Boulevard Commercial Centre, Miri


Taste wise, it has strong in turmeric flavour with a glimpse of pineapple sweetness.
Personally I'm okay with it, for a home kitchen food.
Well it will be better if they add more cube pineapples.
Also, it will be great if they could add green or red capsicum for a color mix food presentation.



- Wet Butter Milk Chicken (medium size), RM18 -

Dinner at A Bui Kitchen, Boulevard Commercial Centre, Miri

Buttery taste is on point!
We were shook by the big serving.
Good for 3 pax sharing.



- Monggu Pork (medium size), RM18 -

This dish is better known as Mongolian Pork.
I'm expecting the dish to taste more of the turmeric spice,
but this one tastes very similar to the Wet Butter Milk Chicken earlier.
If we are visiting the restaurant again,
I would prefer two meat dishes that are distinctive in flavour.
Again, the portion is big enough to share among 3 pax.



- Stir Fried Bittergourd in 3 eggs, RM8 -

Dinner at A Bui Kitchen, Boulevard Commercial Centre, Miri


What does it mean by "3 eggs"?
They are represent by chicken egg, salted duck egg and century duck egg.
This is one of their signature dish.
The bittergourd is cooked well with balance flavour.
Worth trying.



- Stir Fried sweet potato leaves with garlic, RM10 -

Dinner at A Bui Kitchen, Boulevard Commercial Centre, Miri

Classic green dish. Soft and a bit gluey because of its natural plant collagen.
Tip: Eat when its hot.


Overall the food is above average, for a homely food per say.
Price wise, it's very reasonable if you are sharing among a group.


Definitely recommend if you are after classic everyday meal,
or during the day when mum is not cooking.


That's all for now.

June 5 Road trip to Brunei and Miri starts

Hello everyone! :)


This Raya holiday, our family is heading to Miri, Sarawak for a short getaway.
The road journey will lead us to Brunei since two countries are on the same continent.


Mum and I flipped back the photo album which we took on our last visit to Brunei.
It was 5 years ago! 😲
Our family we went there for Chinese New Year back then.
The difference was that we traveled by plane ✈, and now we are driving across the countries.





The road condition in both Sarawak and Brunei truly amazed us (not kidding).
Such a big contrast when you compared with the road in Sabah...🤔





This journey is going to take us about 8 hours (including rest time in between), around 330km.
Are we ready for this?


YES I AM!!! 😎
I love to drive and this is a breakthrough to be able to drive cross-country. Excited!!!


***


Fast forward after 9 hours (due to some delay at custom check points),
we have safely arrived Curtin University, Miri, Sarawak!!! 🙏🏻


Reason why we are here is to pick up our youngest member,
yeap, my youngest sister 🐱.


Here's how the view like from her hostel.








Just in time to catch the sunset 🌇.


As our journey goes, I will write up on the restaurant and food we had along the trip.
So stay tuned! 🤓
