Mimi and Shaf are friends I met thru cyber as we share the same interest, we are Amirul AF4 fans though Shaf was more on being the admin of Amirul forum, a job she took when she was still a student in Japan. She had since moved to Kuching as she is working here now.
Mimi came back to Kuching in May and Borneo Convention Centre Kuching is where she works now. We had made plan to break our fast together before both "balik kampung" for Hari Raya as Shaf is from Kajang, whereas Mimi is from Matu, a small district in Sarawak.
Borneo Convention Centre Kuching or in short BCCK, is not fully operational yet, as some area are still under construction, not the major ones though.
I had asked Shaf to pick me up in the office and she arrive around 5.40pm. We made our way to BCCK and arrive there at around 6 pm. We had hard time looking for parking space as during that time we weren't sure whether the parking space below can be used or not. So I called Mimi and she told us to park at the parking space located at the ground floor.
Mimi met us downstairs and she accompany us to first floor. The funny things is, Shaf noticed Mimi shoes first as she is a fan of shoes.
We made our way up and we asked Mimi is it's okay for us to look around. She brought us to banquet hall which can opened up to accomodate 5,000 guest at one time. On a normal event, the banquet hall can be divided to four hall. There are fourteen meeting rooms and it can accomodate up to 30 peoples at one time.
1) These are meeting rooms no. 2 to 5
2) These are the side entrance to the halls
3) An inside look of the meeting room
4) A very interesting way to break your fast. There are "kurma", prune, pistachio, and etc
5) From another angle
6) Traditional "kuih"
7) Some of the kuih served
8) Chocolate fountain
9) Me, Mimi and Shaf
11) BCCK name was carved on the watermelon. Food carving techniques which I give my salute to the Chef.
12) Another fruit deco
14) BCCK (Borneo Convention Centre Kuching)
We went back at 10.30 pm and we are the last guest to leave. Oh well we enjoyed ourselves and I have to say, these two are among those people that I get along well with. I just hope our friendship last forever. InsyaAllah.
Shaf is going back to Kajang on the 16th of September, whereas Mimi is going back to Matu on 18th of September.
We may be having another session next tuesday, but that pending another friend availability to come.
So see ya next time folks.
P/S : Last day for Ramadan Buffet at BCCK is on the 15th of September, so grab the chance to go there k
