Most Popular Food in Kuching City

If you love hot and spicy food, then on your next trip to Sarawak, especially to the capital city of Kuching, you must not miss the famous Sarawak Laksa. what food is it actually?

Famous Sarawak Laksa
Well, it is actually rice vermicelli mixed with prawn or shrimp paste, topped with fried eggs that are cut into thin slices, blanched bean sprouts, steamed soft chicken slices and juicy tender prawns. Once all the ingredients are mixed together with thick Laksa gravy poured over it and ready to be served, you may want to squeeze a little lime over it and garnished with coriander leaves. You may also want to add in some “belachan” (spicy shrimp paste) before you consume it.
Belachan is a popular ingredient in South East Asia. It is commonly used in South East Asia and Southern Chinese cuisines as a shrimp paste or shrimp sauce. In Indonesia, belachan is known as terasi, ngapi in Burma, kapi in Thailand and mam tom in Vietnam.
A bowl of Sarawak laksa depending on whether it is a large bowl or a small bowl costs around rm4 to rm6 . (rm3.6=usd1). This Laksa is so delicious that after eating it, it may even send you licking the bowl too. You may even order a second bowl thereafter. This dish will definitely warms up your stomach for the whole day.
When you are in Kuching, you can easily find Laksa being sold in many coffee shops. However, the well known coffee shops that sent people waiting and queuing up for hours are the coffee shops at Tabuan Laru, another stall at Bormill third mile and in the city centre located beside Grand Continental hotel. My favourite Sarawak Laksa stall is at Foody Goody coffee shop at Tabuan Laru vicinity. I would patiently wait for at least half an hour on Sundays as there were just too many customers waiting for their bowl of Laksa.
The Sarawak Laksa is available only on mornings as they would be sold out by lunch time. The best and most delicious Sarawak Laksa in the whole region of Sarawak is still in Kuching city.
You should go check it out if you are in Kuching for work, business or leisure.

Relationship is key of happiness

There are many different kinds of relationships that we may have in our lives. From romance to friendship and family, our relationships help to shape our world. So why is it so important that we have and build these relationships in our lives?
For starters, most people place their relationships very high on their list of priorities in their life. While you do want to be able to stay independent, there is no denying that having fulfilling relationships in our lives is a key to our happiness. So, if you want to be happy in your life, you will need to have relationships with people that make you happy.
They are also extremely important when it comes to business as well. If you build a lasting relationship with your co-workers, you will have their support in times of need. They can help you when you are stuck trying to figure out what to do next in your career. They can also help you to relax and ease your mind.
Your family can also be a great source of your happiness. People who have strong connections to their family are less likely to engage in self-destructive behavior. And your family can also be a resource for many other things in your life. Many people have successfully started a business with the help of their family.
Your romantic relationships are also very important. They can literally make you or break you. A partner who does not share the same vision that you do in your life can lead you astray from the very things that you truly want in your life. A partner who is supportive can come to your aid when you are dealing with a problem or emotional stress. And of course, there are many other benefits as well.
All in all, developing strong relationships in every area of your life can help you to accomplish and enjoy whatever you want in your life. Neglecting these relationships can have the reverse effect. So, you want to be sure that you pay extra special attention to the many relationships that do exist in your life. Your success and happiness depend upon them.
