My mum’s fantastic homemade super hot and spicy nasi lemak (she cooks it without using a recipe!)! I ate plates and plates of this in Melbourne! By the time I was done, I was sweating, peeing and pooing ikan bilis (anchovy) sambal! ;-)
(the photo doesn’t do it justice!)
Diving off Perhentian Besar in Malaysia. It’s like swimming in one giant heated aquarium.
(Photo by one of our dive masters Ozzie – sorry Ozzie, had to swipe your photos as we have none of our own!)
Oh and naturally, the slightly expensive (it’s an island – they have to ship food there!) meals after the dives.
Being a fairly small island (I know, even though it’s Perhentian Besar, it’s still small. "besar" = big in Malay), there are not a whole lot of decent eating places. In fact, most of the places actually served up pretty crappy food!
However, it was still Malaysia so even the badly cooked food was still way better than many many Asian restaurants here in Europe!
Among our regular eating haunts on Perhentian Besar were the Tuna Bay restaurant and Abdul’s (my personal favourite for the beach we were on).
Iced Milo at Tuna Bay! (Yes, I know it’s just Milo but I haven’t had it for ages!! There's no Milo in Germany.) Very average mee goreng and kuay teow at Tuna Bay but eating right on the beach made up for it!
The Hubby’s satay at Tuna Bay.
Not too bad kangkong belacan at Tuna Bay (my mum does better!).
Plate-licking hot and spicy sambal sotong (squid) and sambal long beans at Abdul’s! Mmmmmmm! We ate here a lot but I just kept having the same favourite dishes: sambal everything!
Thanks everyone for all your very sweet comments about missing me! It's nice to be loved ;-) hehe!
I’m still catching up on all the fantastic eye and mouth watering meals that everyone’s been posting on their blogs! So much food and so little time!
Before I forget, a bit belated but thanks Sharmi for the Rocking Girl Blogger award. I’d like to pass it on to a billion of you out there but it looks like everyone has already been nominated at some point or other! So this is for for every foodie female out there including:
A whiff of lemongrass
