The sublimely ridiculous to exquisite art awaits. Don’t want to say too much as definitely something that must be experienced to appreciate.

Kuching actually means cat! And for this reason when staying here this museum is a must-do. I regret not buying one of the great decorative cats for sale here to remind me of our great trip now I am home.
