It was time to say our goodbyes to Bali, but before doing so, we needed to have another mie goreng/nasi goreng breakfast. We learnt during breakfast that everyone here has only a few names to choose from based on their order of birth. Our driver is called Ketut, so we know he was the fourth-born. After… Continue reading Malaysia II Day 15: Bali – KK
Delicious flying fishes and other dishes, with live fishes swimming under our feet @ Bale Udang
Today we selected the American breakfast instead with eggs, toast, bacon, sausage and tomato. Again this is served with watermelon juice and watermelon and papaya slices. The portion sizes were not large, just one small piece of each of the bacon, sausage and tomato, unlike the portions I’m used to in Canada (*cough* Baker St.… Continue reading Malaysia II Day 14: More Bali Adventures!

Firstly, when we landed in Hong Kong, we were nicely greeted with Asian food galore.… Continue reading Malaysia II Day 1: Ottawa – Toronto – Hong Kong – Kota Kinabalu
Green garlic bread and Mentaiko @ SPAGHeTEI
Update: This restaurant has permanently closed. I did not and will not give up on my noodle journey in Vancouver. The time, I had Japanese spaghetti at SPAGHeTEI on Robson. I never had Japanese-style spaghetti before but I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed, as this was approved by my favourite fellow foodies (try saying that a… Continue reading SPAGHeTEI!
