we continued the drive towards Lundu. then, before crossing the bridge (back then ferry was used to cross the river) to reach Lundu, we stopped by a village. it was where me and my brother's former nanny lived. dad asked a lady who was selling traditional cakes by the roadside about the family. she told us that our nanny already married someone from Sibu and stayed there. so we just stopped by to visit her parents. mom and dad talked to them which was not that easy coz i don't think they get every word we said, and the same goes to us :p.

we stopped by the hospital where my brother was born, and mom showed us the maternity ward. but as it was not visiting hours, we couldn't see the interior. next, we continued the journey to SMK Lundu where mom and dad both worked. it was also where we lived. our old house has been converted into classrooms and it seems that there was some work being done in the area.

on the way back home, we made a stop at Cats Museum at the Dewan Bandaraya Kuching Utara. there were various displays of cats compiled by collectors. all sorts of cats in paintings, keychains etc. the owner's or the collector's idea is to be praised. it would surely take a lot of money and interest to get all of those things.

we rested at home before going out again to a shop selling souvenirs. it got all sorts of T-shirts, keychains, bangles, batik Sarawak, pepper, and vase there. i felt like staying there and try on everything :p. we spent hours in that particular shop choosing things to bring back and i had a great time taking pictures.
