In Malaysia, Miffy had visited several places of historical and cultural significance. This flight […]

Sek Mei Hong Chili Yong Tau Foo, Jinjang

So, we went towards Jinjang one fine weekend, in search if this Chili Yong Tau Foo dive, we’d heard about. Not just any old chili. We are talking a chili strength that’s one heck of a lot closer to pepper spray pain level. Where the truly wild, world of extreme chilies reign supreme.
