Kuching/Sarawak Delights along Carpenter Street

"Carpenter Street" was first heard of last year when my Sarawakian colleague YS  happily suggested we going for lunch in a restaurant so named along Bayan Baru. I was made known that it is a street with shops selling lotsa local Chinese delights!

Inevitably, during a recent trip to Kuching, we chose to overnight in one of the fabulous hostels situated exactly 1-minute walk from the famous street.

 We hunted for our breaky on this street on daily basis throughout our stay. 
I have no idea how to relate "Ya Ta Jie" (Chinese) with "Carpenter Street" =(

True blue Sarawak kolomee we had in the so called "Temple".  After having kolomee for 3 consecutive days in Kuching, I still think the one sold in the Palazzo tasted best!

 Sarawak laksa. YS said this' the spiciest food in Sarawak - that's why I love Sarawak so much (The fact that I despise spicy food doesn't make me any less Malaysian!!!)

The "Temple" enriching our gastronomical adventure.  Highly recommended by some locals.

Boots Tea Tree Witch Hazel Anti-Blemish Cleansing Foam

The "Teatree + Witchhazel Anti-blemish Deep Cleansing Facial Foam" is now called "Tea Tree Witch Hazel Anti-Blemish Cleansing Foam". I am gonna miss the liquid foam so much as the new one comes in the form of cream foam and hence, I would have to lather it with water. The effect is nevertheless as good as the old one, if not better.

Boots Botanic Rosewater Toning Spritz 100% Organic

This' the new look of my all-time-favourite since 2011 (as described in this post). 

Not only it has a new look, it is now called "Rosewater Toning Spritz 100% Organic" instead of "Organic Face Rosewater Toner". The present best feature would be it allows you to spritz anywhere and everywhere conveniently <3 .="" and="" br="" in="" is="" it="" made="" the="" uk.="">

After 2 long years, the nearest place to attain this is still, sadly, from my neighbouring land i.e. Thailand. I look forward to the day I could walk into a nearby Boots Chemist and pay for it using local currency.
