No one told me that I had to draw a person if I wanted to tell a story of a person. So, I drew myself into a cat to tell the stories of my youth, growing up in Kuching, Sarawak. It's really not because I do not know how to draw a person. Certainly not. "koff koff".

Oh, if you don't know where Sarawak is, it's on Borneo island, the other side of Malaysia across the South China Sea.

When I left my hometown at the age of 17 to pursue my studies, I found that many of my new friends knew next to nothing about Kuching. Some even thought that people from Malaysian Borneo all stayed on trees.

After 9 years of engineering and missing home, I returned home to chase after my dream of being a cartoonist. In this period back in my hometown, many memories from my days in Kuching came back to me. This book is my book of memories of the land where I grew up and fell in love with.

Honestly, I have no idea what I just wrote. That's why I prefer to use my drawings to illustrate my story.

I hope you will enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing and illustrating it.
