KUCHING IN & OUT: OUR CULTURE, FOOD & LIFESTYLE PRINT WEB/DIGITAL TABLETMOBILE Around the middle of November every year, I start to panic. The year is coming to an end. What have I done, not done? I often wish I didn't have to count the days and months. Wouldn't it be nice to have no time to measure, do all the things we want to do anytime, all the time. Such a silly thought. I know I will still want more time and be late for the next objective. One thing about history and tradition is that it's there all the time for us to appreciate. The Fort: Stepping into History (pg. 20-25) tells you stories about the inspirations behind Fort Margherita, particularly Ranee Margaret. A nice boat ride across river from the waterfront will bring you to the newly restored fort with its permanent exhibition by the Brooke Heritage Trust. Marianne North in Sarawak (pg. 26-29) The life and works of a biologist and botanical artist who lived in Fort Margherita for a certain period during the time of Charles Brooke. Songket and Keringkam (pg. 30-33) Art before fashion on the traditional weavers of the Songket and the master artisan of the Karingkam. Kek Ati Parek (pg. 34-37). A Malay traditional cake that takes a lot more than knowledge and passion to make. Lots of patience is called for but it's worth it to celebrate the upcoming festive seasons. Noranisah binti Bujang , a traditional cake maker, whips up a big bowl of the festive Kek Ati Parek (pg. 34-37) also known as "Kukus 8 jam". She did the 'cookin' (+ 8 hours), we did the 'lickin' (8 seconds). MARIAN CHIN Editor-in-Chief Thank you for 2016 and a meaningful 2017 to all our readers!

His self-taught culinary journey has been an immensely rewarding experience. The creative aspect, the skills in execution, the artistry in display are all addictive, fueling curiosity and an endless quest for perfection, in a dish. Molecular gastronomy elevates culinary art to a new level; scientiﬁc knowledge of and its application to food ensures an end-result that is both certain and reproducible. Guess work is obsolete. Being a medic, a surgeon, he is an unlikely chef... where do you see a commonality? GONE BAMBOO, A CHARITy DINNER, a unique ﬁne-dining ex– perience, emphasizes local pro- duce and its culinary potential, inspired by 3 chefs from uncon- ventional backgrounds. Proceeds, in their entirety go to: HOPE PLACE, a charitable orga- nization that helps the less for- tunate in the community e.g the disabled (OKU), impoverished low income families and single parents. PROFILE OF THE CHEFS: TIMOTHY TING... accidental chef He resigned as a Senior Manager of a public listed company with 15 years general trading experience and left to Taiwan for some intensive courses on construction and real estate management in 1991. In Taichung City, he acciden- tally salvaged a failed 2-month-old restaurant venture. From there, this new dimension in food business was no holds barred. Passion for cooking and perse- verance as a restaurateur are essential F&B elements that have driven him on for last 25 years. HAMISH WATTS... sometimes chef At the tender age of 15 years old, he entered the culinary profession serving as an apprentice Chef in Brisbane, Australia, immediately followed by a sojourn in the UK under Michelin starred chefs. He returned to Australia to work in several highly regarded restaurants prior to joining Hilton Melbourne Airport as the youngest Executive Chef in Hilton Asia Paciﬁc at 27. After 18 years in the culinary profession, he stepped out of the kitchen into the current role of General Manager Hilton. by Timothy Ting, Hamish Watts and Dr. Kho Chefs for Charity!

She was trained as a graphic designer and worked in advertising for almost 14 years before moving overseas for 6 years from 2005 to 2010. In late 2005, she started with acrylic paintings of people and scenes. Back in KL, she was ﬁnding herself yet again, not wanting to go back into advertising. She took up creative writing which eventually led to where she is today. Her love of drawing dogs started only in November of 2012. In August 2014, she started urban sketching which developed into travel sketch journals.

The upper level of our hall was totally destroyed and 20% of the lower ﬂoor was damaged as well. Some of the materials ruined by the ﬁre include 431 sets of desks and chairs for students, textbooks for 2017, and PA systems. The two-storey building also housed the staﬀ room, library, counselling room, surau, sewing room, living skills room, and music room. Moreover, because the school lacks suﬃcient classrooms, certain parts of the hall were also constantly used to house students from “ﬂoating classes”. We are organising a fundraising for our most immediate need, which is the interim solution. To be most eﬃcient while staying optimal, we aim to construct the building using the Integrated Building System (IBS) which can be put together quickly during the 7-week school holiday because it uses ready-made pieces that simply need to be installed. These rooms will serve as temporary staﬀ rooms, living skills room, and counselling room.

It started with the intention to stop racial wars among local tribes where headhunting was largely practiced. James Brooke then instructed all tribes to instead challenge each other by having boat races to prove their power and strength. The call to challenge each other through the boat race rather than headhunting was successful in bringing peace to the area. The Sarawak Regatta takes place along the Sarawak River.
