Passionate about Hamburgers II

After having the great hamburgers in Hawaii, I started to scout for good hamburgers in and around Kuching. There is this place called Coffee Talk at Tabuan Laru that I have heard about having good pork hamburgers but I had not been to try them out until quite recently. It was some time in August that I made my first order at Pig's Barn (that's the name of the stall) and I was introduced to the new item on that day called the 'Cawabunga' Burger. It was a hamburger with mango sauce that went well with the pork patty, as the sour taste eased the oiliness of the meat. However, I found the patty a bit too soft, probably due to high content of Spam, but taste wise was alright. The bun was toasted and was quite firm when bitten.

On my second visit, I went for the chef speciality, the Black-out Burger. The bun used for this burger contained edible charcoal powder which did not add additional taste to the bun. The pork patty was the same type used in the 'Cawabunga' Burger. I would like to add that the lettuce used was very fresh. If pork burgers are for you, don't hesitate to drop by this place as it is arguably the best place in Kuching for commercial pork burgers. However, the hamburgers are not served with potato chips.

The other good place for hamburgers that I discovered recently is at the Picnic food court of The Summer Shopping Mall, the latest shopping mall around the Kuching and Kota Samarahan Divisions. This one is near to my workplace and I have tasted two types of their hamburgers. The beef patty was grilled whereas the fish fillet was deep-fried. The hamburgers here have balanced taste and potato chips are standard side dish. If you are in Kota Samarahan and fancy a hamburger, do drop by this place for a good bite.

Kaohsiung City Skyline

The buildings in Taiwan cities are very utilitarian as rectangular shapes make the most space out of the structures. Therefore, there are not that many interesting buildings around, including the second largest city, Kaohsiung.



Perhaps a yacht may save the day but it is not a permanent part of the city skyline. I was told by our taxi driver that most of these yachts belong to the mainland Chinese billionaires who do not dare to harbour their yachts in China. Why is that so? Because the poor people may set these luxury toys that cost tens of million each on fire out of jealousy!


The most interesting building may be this landmark of Kaohsiung, but it is still made of three rectangular prisms. The name itself is also not so interesting as it is called by the number of storeys, the Tuntex 85 Sky Tower!

Nikon Club Get-Together 3 in Kuching

Yesterday afternoon was the third time that Nikon Club Malaysia has organised the 3rd Nikon Club Get-Together in Kuching. After attending the the 2nd Nikon Advanced Users Group Meet Up in the morning, I went to join this event at around 3 p.m. There was some delay due to the 'anti-grey' campaign in which Nikon (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. needs to make sure that non of the participants is holding a grey-set camera. Some of the models were also trapped in the traffic jam that made the event delayed even longer.

It was almost 3:45 p.m. when one of the models was finally ready. Since there were almost seventy participants in the event and only one model to start with, it was almost impossible to get a good position to shoot. When the other three models were finally ready, the situation got better and I could only enjoy shooting from then on.











Participants of the event are automatically qualified for the Nikon Club Malaysia photo contest under the category of 'I AM KUCHING GT3.' So, I am going to submit these photos and hope that I can win some prize!
