Wedding 101: Wedding planners (Kuching/Sibu)

*Updated: 25 July 2014* *Hi, I am preparing for wedding on 09/09/2014 and  I'll be sharing my story/ useful info/tips   on my little space here. Do check under label 'Wedding 101' for more wedding prep info.  =)* *continuing from Wedding 101: Choosing a venue for Wedding Reception * Wedding Planners - Are they necessary? Well it depends. Tip # 1: If you are working abroad and having your wedding reception elsewhere or; If you have tight schedule or; If you are looking at 60+ tables on your wedding reception. Chances are, you'll need one.  (Of course, there are a lot more reasons click here to read more) Yes, you can survive without one but you do need to bear with the stress of doing a DIY wedding esp when the date draws closer.

Weekend Foodie Post: Spicy Rainbow Noodle (彩丝辣面)

Tip #1:  This week, I'll like to bring you to  Good Taste Cafe (好口福茶餐食) which is located   in   between MBKS and Dorset Boutique hotel. [ Address: Lorong Goh Meng Teck (Jalan Sekama)  93300 Kuching ] Tip #2:   Well, it's  close on Tuesday   though! Normally, I would eat Heng Hua Noodles there until recently I found another place that makes better Heng Hua Noodles. LOL!  And that gave me a chance to try other things which indeed, I found something greater! Tip # 3: What I like about 彩丝辣面:  The creativity! Cause the direct translation of  彩丝辣面  means ' Spicy Rainbow Noodle' .  Though you don't get a rainbow colour, the dish is colourful enough with raw red cabbage, white cabbage, black fungus, shredded carrot and maritated meat dipped into their specially made sauce *yum~* You know how our breakfast in kopitiam is either: a) Full of Carbs e.g. Kolo Mee/Roti Kiap    or  b) Full of Carbs + some Prot  e.g. Kueh Chap/ Laksa
