Cat loves food… Part 2

I see I have much to catch up with, after a week of torment; I am back to civilization and gaining weight. Damn, I need another week of bootcamp.

Right, where was I? O, after that fantastic session of exotic dinner, Kenny brought me and Dominic for a drive around seven miles. We stopped at a hawker corner to have the best Teh Si Special (Kenny proclaimed) in Kuching.

What is so special about Teh Si Special? Well, first of all, it’s only available in East Malaysia. Secondly, normal Teh Si has two layers, milk and tea; Teh Si Special on the other hand, has three layers – milk, tea and gula Melaka! It’s ironic how come a West Malaysia product could end up producing an East Malaysian drink.

Being a Gula Melaka (Malacca Sugar) devoted fan, I have to try this drink.

I like Teh Si Special


Kenny and TSS
ask you to pose with TSS very beh song is it~??


In this video, our all time favorite Kenny show you how to stir and drink Teh Si Special,




The mamak there should pay me loads with such advertisement for them.

After the drink, without delay, Kenny immediately drove us to another location for another famous local treat. Gee… Kenny, you really waste no time to feed us. Do you so desperately want to see me fat? I am, ok, I already am so overweight; no way in hell I need another extra pound.

Already bloated I was, I have to say, I was really glad Kenny introduced this other surprise that night.

I’m so full, but I wanna try~


White lady - the name of the drink, is officially my new found love in Kuching. It is so good, you can even finish the whole glass after feeling so sick of food and milk tea. The taste is sweet and a bit sour-ish, so it prompts your taste bud and go very easy on your stomach; probably one of the easiest sweet drinks to down. Heck, I even asked Dominic’s friend to ‘tabao’ the drinks for me so I can take back to Malaysia the day of my departure; though the drink only went as far as the airport before ended up in my tummy. :D

I love love, luurrvvee this drink! Anyone going back to Kuching and back here, please ta bao for me the drink k? Pretty please~~ I’m plug you here if you buy me the drink. That’s how much I’m so in love with it.

dom handling white lady
I seriously think Dom should try casting for food advert


The next morning, it was food again. -.-;; I think I might as well bang the wall and die, you tell everyone you’re dieting, and everybody else is trying their best to sabotage your desperate attempt.

It was early morning and the host brought us out for breakfast. I think I felt the white lady still swimming somewhere in my stomach. But anyway, guess what we had? It’s very famous in Kuching~

kolo mee
kolo mee!!!!!


I can’t comment on the taste, believe it or not, I haven’t tried it… YET. I just gazed away while the rest gobbled their scrumptious breakkie up. Yup, respect me, cause I have a commitment to my body!! ….. Can someone tabao this for me also when he/she return from his/her visit to Kuching?

At least Dom seems to be enjoying his meal.

I’m signing Dom up for an Advert casting…
