New year 2011 was ushered in in a burst of fireworks under the long shadows of Wisma Sanyan, the tallest building in Sarawak.
For those unfamiliar with Sarawak, Wisma Sanyan is in Sibu, which in turn, is the nearest big town from Mukah.
The fireworks was preceded with a yummy New Year eve dinner, karaoke session and some lovely fruit dessert.
New Year morning 2011 started with a long queue to get a taste of Sibu’s famous Tomyam Hung Ngan.
The source of the 30-minute wait and the need to play waiter in bringing the food to your own table:
Tastes delicious, albeit probably Ajinomoto induced as resulted in half day long polydipsia.
New year dinner in turn consists of a huge plate of pineapple rice, crunchy soft shell crabs and sinful banana pancake.
So yeah theme for the New Year: Food, food and more food. Not a bad way to start a new year =)
