It was my first time setting foot in Sibu. I was really excited. We flew into Sibu from KL for the actual day wedding dinner photography, spent the night and took a bum-busting 9 hour ride back to Kuching the following morning!
We didn't have much time to rest when we arrived in Kuching. I had an early morning the following day for the Registration of Marriage (ROM) ceremony as the bride make up and prep was at the Waterfront Hotel, Kuching.
I made a trip back to Sarawak, Borneo over Christmas as my last excursion for 2015. Shortly after touching down in Kuching via the first flight of the day, we drove for almost 4.5 hours eastward to Batang Ai Dam.
We arrived in the afternoon and the sun was out in full while an orang asli was preparing his boat to be loaded with goods.
I was actually quite thrilled to discover a distant relative of a loved one is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practitioner who owns a shop in Kuching, Malaysia. The traditional Chinese medicine outlet, also known as the Kok Ann medical store is located at No. 30, Ground Floor, Jln Carpenter, 93000 Kuching, Sarawak.
The notion of having the opportunity to get up close and personal with an old trade of many centuries in the face of modern healthcare practice is indeed exciting to say the least. So I found myself at the traditional Chinese medicine outlet with my faithful Fuji x100s.
The first test drive of the Fujifilm x100s in Bangkok last month proved to be a great ride. I was looking forward to replicating the experience this time around in my recent trip back to Cat city by using the camera to explore Kuching's rural areas. It was a laid back trip with no plans and just chilling.
Travelling has never been easier and this hassle-free without lugging along back-breaking DSLR equipment. I was using the x100s by taking slow and thoughtful snaps around a relative's house.
