Pulau Tioman: seafood!

While our journey to and from Pulau Tioman was not exactly relaxing, once we were there we had a great time. The island is beautiful and you really feel like your “away”. While our hotel was beautiful, we felt like we wanted to experience a bit more local kampung (village)...

Crossing into Johor for a football game

Singapore’s ethnic malls: Golden Mile Complex (Thailand)

Singapore’s ethnic malls: Penninsula Plaza (Myanmar) The Thai community in Singapore isn’t huge, especially when compared to other South-East Asian nations like the Philippines. But their social focal point is definitely worth a visit.

Singapore: tailor made clothes

Kuala Lumpur: Bak Kuh Teh not too far from the city centre

A friend of ours was kind enough show us one of the better places to have Bah Kuh Teh in Kuala Lumpur. Apparently the very famous places are all further out, mostly in Klang (around 30km outside of KL). Without going into details, I think Wikipedia gives the best summary...

Kuala Lumpur: great, casual Indian food

Sunday morning we had a craving for Indian food. There is definitely no shortage of Indian food in KL, thanks to approx. 10% of the population being of Indian descent. We didn’t do any research, but instead just walked to Jalan Masjid India and tried to find a place there....
