But, leaving the past behind knowing you won't ever experience them again is saddening sometimes. The 'pasar minggu satok' had its last Sunday yesterday and they're moving to another location. If I'm right, the new place is called 'Medan Niaga Satok'. Hurrr.. I donce like it! -____-
'Pasar minggu satok' sounds so , Kuching.
The other name sounds , Semenanjung-ngish.
Why didn't they come up with a more local name??
Can't believe the 'pasar minggu satok' I've known all my life will no longer be there.
Up to when the house was demolished alongside with other neigbbouring houses to make way to the now Bangunan Satok, this is what's left of my darling paternal grandparents' home.
Here I am feeling all gloomy and grey for we're all going to miss the iconic pasar minggu satok and rojak kuchei (burnt down last night), and they're not even the home we lived in raising our children through Japanese invasion up to Merdeka and to the first family car. *I feel you Mak Nenek. Allah please bless her soul* I miss that house. I'm still waiting for my cousin to reply me to give the exact year when the house was built.. most probably almost 100 years ago.
Hmmm... yaa.. When I think of 'pasar minggu satok', I always remember this house. We would sit (my cousins uncles aunties and I) at the huge warm nice gorgeous balcony (as big as a living room!) and watched cars on Satok Road pass by at the same time watching locals carrying their colorful plastic bags filled with fruits, veges, fishes, blooms, walking out of the 'pasar minggu satok' heading back to their homes, all stocked up for the week.
No more of those.

My late Was Mos (above, top) was so handsome!!
Oh dear.. I'm all teared up.
Well well.. What did I expect? Things won't stay the way they are forever, no??

You'll never go home from pasar minggu feeling eye-sored, gorgeous

Tourists always ask to be brought here. They shop, eat, sweat,
walk, take pictures and enjoyed themselves here
my kids' favorites, the crispy apam balik
fruits, local and imported
It's a bit of a sad day for some Kuchingites. The Batu Lintang 'rojak kuchei' branch burnt down last night. Yeaa.. no more pasar minggu satok, no more rojak kuchei. That's how Kuching ends its 2012. Inshaa Allah a better 2013.
