Final day of CNY

Today is the last day of Chinese New Year. The fifteen days so far have been full of food, food and more food. I am positive my over extended waist line has already seen some extra centimeters. We were fortune enough to walk down Jalan Alor in Bukit Bintang to see the Dragon and Lion Dance. We only caught the Lion dance and it was breathtaking. Last day is also known as Chap Goh Mei, in Malaysia this may also be known as Chinese New Year Valentines Day. This day is more celebrated by single people looking for a love […]

King of Fruits

Tonight we broke tradition and i didn’t go to ant special place for dinner however I went to Subway. For a start the total cost of the Subway was around RM18 or 6 US dollars for a foot long.

It is hard to explain exactly but I think every tourist should try the bread here.

Local Delights in Kuala Lumpur

This morning, I decided to take a stroll to China Tow. China Town is around 10 to 15 minutes walk from Apple Hotel in Jalan Alor. It is full of hustlers trying to make a buck with their fake goods and some very nice street food. In this post I was going to do a blog about the various street food in China Town however one caught my eye and I decided i will dedicate the whole post to it. The one is particular is Pancakes. Pancakes are something most westerners have had, but this one is done on a […]
