@Sparklezane is in my house. Lol. She is staying at my house for 1 week and I am now coming up with plans on things to do and eat:) Hopefully she won't be bored since I am such a boring person at home hehe.
** be warned, lots of photos **
Continuing from my last Sarawak post, we took the morning boat to Sibu and we were greeted by Jane's family, who were so generous to not only cook lunch for us but to also allow us to stay for one night in their house. Jane's family is so large, unlike mine. She lives in the same house with her parents, her 4 siblings plus her brother's wife and daughter. Yes, Jane has a young niece, QiQi, who is the cutest thing ever. She talks non-stop and is so hyperactive. I had so much fun laughing at her because the way she talks is soooooo adorable. She has plenty of "lo" and "oh", like typical Malaysian:) Sometimes her talk is incomprehensible, but nevertheless she is so much joy to have around.

After that, Jane's brother dropped us near Wisma Sanyan. This is actually my 2nd time to Sibu, and again it's a brief time, only one day:) Clara is also familiar with Sibu since it is near Kapit.

A stone's throw away is the Tai Pak Kong temple with a tall pagoda overlooking the Rejang River.

After all the walking, it was time to be replenished and Jane brought us to a prettily-decorated restaurant which was recommended by her sister.
|Very beautiful decorations|
Coincidentally, that day was Mother's day so the restaurant was packed with families. It was unfortunate because we had to wait for a long time for our food. And it was not only us, we saw people leaving and few were complaining as well.
But the food made up for it. The portion is huge, btw, luckily we did not order individually as were forewarned by Jane's sister. Although the waiting intervals for our food to arrive were so long apart, the food was undeniably delicious. The appearance may be slightly meh, but the taste totally make up for it:)

Every nook and cranny of the restaurant is decorated with a modern touch added with beautiful bouquets of floral arrangements.
And that ends my 2nd post of Sarawak. Next post will be Kuching!
