Malaysia Trip 2022/2023 Day 10: Kota Kinabalu

This morning, I woke up at 6am before the baby is awake and got some blogging done while listening to Gary Chaw (inspired by yesterday's visit to his restaurant). Most days I’ve been here, I’ve been waking up at 5am and just listening to podcasts and catching up on social media until baby woke up.… Continue reading Malaysia Trip 2022/2023 Day 10: Kota Kinabalu

Last morning at the Le Meridian and our last breakfast at Latest Recipe. I couldn’t leave without having another nasi lemak. I also tried their chicken congee for the first time.

Another morning in KK, another breakfast at Latest Recipe. Today I tried their roti canai. Unfortunately the roti was not freshly made and looked like the packaged ones we can get in Canada, so it was on the dry side. I also tried some of their western breakfast items with chicken sausage (most hotels and… Continue reading Malaysia Trip 2022/2023 Day 6: Kota Kinabalu

Malaysia Trip 2022/2023 Day 4: Kota Kinabalu

Good morning KK! This morning, I woke up to the sounds of prayers at around 5am. I don’t remember this in my past trips. Perhaps it’s because we’re closer to the city centre this time. For breakfast, we conveniently headed downstairs to Latest Recipe, the all day buffet restaurant here. They had a large selection of food including western food (eggs, bread, pastries, sausages and beans etc), traditional Malaysian breakfast (nasi lemak), Indian food (roti with curry), and a noodle bar (with various soups - vegetable, chicken, beef, tom yum). I had to start with some nasi lemak (their traditional breakfast) as my first meal here in Malaysia.
