My first real introduction with Malaysian food in Sydney occurred at Mamak a while back, and it has become a place I love to hit up for some reliable and tasty Malaysian to this day.
As part of the Malaysia Kitchen Blogger Ambassador program, Pat and I hit up Mamak last night before going out… Read more
In my early days of having a drink or two, I was subjected to cheap beers at parties and keggers, with the occasional mixed drink (made with cheap alcohol) here and there. Beer was beer… nothing special, just a drink you had at parties or when going out.
I’ve learned a… Read more
Yesterday, I blogged about the new travel photography ebook from Beers and Beans — and I ranted and raved about it. For $9.99, I honestly think you can’t get a better starter photography book than this, and one that has the traveler in mind, as well.
To further prove my point, I decided to put some of the food photo… Read more
Malaysian food is quickly becoming one of the hottest types of food around the Sydney area particularly because of its unique mix of spices and colors. It is food that you can eat with your eyes just as much with your mouth.
I was chosen as a Malaysia Kitchen Blogger Ambassador here in Sydney… Read more
For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been using my over the door resistance band gym system that Pat and I brought back from the States for a mere $26 in order to get fitter. So far, I’ve noticed firmer arms, a flatter tummy and a teeny-tiny bit of slimming in the legs (we’ll get… Read more
There’s been nothing quite like the good ol’ American holiday of July 4th to bring out the homesickness in just about every American abroad I know. Talking about barbecues and fireworks has taken over my blog feed lately, but I’ll tell you what, the homesickness factor became apparent in my local circle of friends a little sooner than that.
And… Read more
Before heading to Chicago, I caught wind of a restaurant that serves up Russian food -- one that is also run by an Uzbek chef. Uhm... Central Asian influenced Russian food? Pat knew this was immediately going to be on our itinerary. And he was right.
Vegas. It’s a place to indulge. A place to put just a little bit more money on red, have another yard-length margarita and put yet another bite in your mouth.
We’re going to talk about the last point.
Vegas has more buffet restaurants than you can count. Buffets. Mile-long buffets (it seems). You… Read more
It’s kind of sad, but when it comes to my America trip, all I want to talk about is the food. I mean, I had 3 years to make up for; all my favorites were on the list. And my mom, well don’t even get me started. She was bringing home all the things… Read more
I start most of my days with a nice hot cup of coffee, except for when I decide to switch it up with a cup of tea, and I wouldn’t (or couldn’t) have it any other way. I love coffee; it is a spice of my life, and I can now see American coffee in… Read more
Eating in America is a great, great thing. You sit down at the table and are immediately met with ice waters and baskets of bread… for free! Oh my goodness! I used to live with this “luxury” my entire life, and now I’m realizing how totally awesome I had it. You live you learn,… Read more
It may not be something I’d recommend to those couples going on a first date, or maybe even a third, but the Stinking Rose restaurant in San Francisco is an experience I recommend to anyone that loves a garlicky good time. Everything — I’m talking everything — from the 40 clove (literally) garlic chicken… Read more
