My adik biras, or younger brother-in-law, flew into Kuching for a day on business. That makes him the first relative to see my daughter, which is fitting, since I was the first relative to see his daughter who was born just last month when we were in Kuala Lumpur. Anyway, he took those of us not in confinement out to eat at a fancy seafood restaurant, and guess what they had there? You remember those creepy sea-cucumber-y things I saw in the market last week? They’re not bad in a curry sauce. I’d say they taste a bit like clams.
