From Bukit Mertajam to Taiping

A continuation post from last years returning trip from Penang. While having brunch at an Indian Muslim coffeeshop in Teluk Bahang on Penang Island, a chinese lady with her family suggested I try Bukit Mertajam’s famous laoshu fen (silver needle rice noodle) pork noodles when I headed back to Kuala Lumpur.

There is a huge misconception that one shouldn’t eat avocados because they’re high in fat. The latest facts actually show that avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat, the heart-healthy kind. Yet scientists are now more interested in the active compounds in avocados that might help prevent cancer. One recent study found that those compounds can […]

Two Monkeys @ Jaya 1, PJ

Two Monkeys at Jaya 1. And I don’t mean Cumi&Ciki either. If the beer at Brussels is over priced and watered down, The Guinness at Two monkeys is way better. We didn’t have much time.. (rush rush rush), so we only tried the Chillied Chicken on skewers. Hunky, succulent breast meat chicken, with spice. Not […]
