Working for a Japanese company is a real plus. I get to visit Tokyo at least once or twice a year. In the time that I have worked for this company I have visited Japan, a resounding 17 times. Amongst the places that I have had the privilege to visit include, Tokyo, Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Osaka, […]

Nasi Lemak Daun Pisang @ Robson Heights, KL

Nasi Lemak is to Malaysians, what the English fry-up is to the British. But whilst the full English breakfast has streaky bacon, eggs, fried or grilled tomatoes, fried mushrooms, fried bread or toast and sausages, the Malaysian nasi lemak has hot spicy sauce (sambal),  hard boiled egg, cucumber slices, small dried anchovies (ikan bilis) and […]

Albion @ Changkat Bukit Bintang, KL

It was around the middle of last year, that I read about a poll at the British  food awards, where the UK won the coveted (not!) title of “Worst National Cuisine” by a landslide. British food sucks/taste bad/has no class .. are all truisms that even the Brits buy into. I remember my hall-mates deriving […]

Movie Review – [rec]2

from www.iconsoffright.com I loved the 1st installment of [Rec] because it used first-person faux-documentary camerawork, following a TV presenter into the building as she investigated some strange going-ons and the sequel continues this style to great effect. We ride along looking through the helmet cameras of a four-man S.W.A.T. team tasked with escorting a senior […]

Tykoh Inagiku @ Menara Kek Seng KL

One of the main things I like about Japanese food, is the emphasis on eating things at their “shun” , or “in-season”. When I walk into a good authentic restaurant I like to ask them, what is “in season” at the moment and just leave the ordering to them. Now a days, when we are […]

Bento Art

I remember it was around the middle of last year that Lyrical Lemongrass talked to me about  bento art, and wanting to try her hand at it. Then at the end of last year Keropokman twittered that he did successfully accomplish making his very own bento box as part of a healthy eating promotion in Singapore, […]

Mr. Chiam’s Goreng Pisang Stall @ Brickfields

Cumi & Ciki love Brickfields for many reasons, the main ones being, Peter’s Pork Mee, the Gulab Jamun Man , the famous Vishal Banana Leaf and finally Mr Chiam’s Pisang Goreng Stall. Oh, and the blind massage.. we must not forget the blind massage, but you get the general idea. We like Brickfields for innumerable […]

Day 3 Java – Pangandaran

Heading southeast from Bandung, the road passes through rolling hills and scenic volcanic peaks – this is the Bandung Yogyakarta road as far as Banjar. If you go via road taking the bus for example, it will only drop you so far as Ciamis or Banjar. That is why taking the 4848 is actually the […]
