    Recently received a postcard from Kuching so I was interested in seeing your page on the "City of Cats." Interesting about the cat museum. Are there alot of cats in the city??

    In spite of its short blooming season, your timing to see the Rafflesia was perfect! I also would have had to explore the cat museum--so different!

    It's a pity that Rafflesia is blooming only a few days. You were lucky to catch it :-) Cat museum, orangutans sounds great for me. I don't know rambutans (yet!) - do they export them?

    How wonderful to see the Orangutans I would just love that.For them to be eventually released back into the wild in their natural habitat is just amazing.Its such a pity that they had been taken from it in the first place, thanks for sharing this with us.

    Thanks for dropping by my Kuching pages. You're right, the food at the Kuching Hilton is among the best!
