By the time you read this, I’ll be on holiday! I’m going away to parts of Asia for four weeks. K and I are spending a week in Malaysia (Penang, Kuala Lumpur and K’s family’s hometown of Seremban), a week in Hong Kong and Macau, and two weeks in Vietnam, travelling from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh.
I’m really looking forward to the trip – not only the chance to see both K and my respective extended families, but also just to see some countries I’ve not been to before, like Vietnam. I’m also looking forward to the great street food I’m going to have the opportunity to try!
Malaysian food has recently started becoming more popular in Australia in recent years (due in part to events like the Flavours of Malaysia buffet, and spokespeople like Jackie M), but I hear actual Malaysian street food in Penang is much better. I’m also looking forward to the Portugese-inspired food in Macau, and doing a cooking class in Hoi An in Vietnam – a city famed for its markets.
On a fancier note, we even have an overnight stopover in Singapore that is long enough for us to go to Waku Ghin for dinner, with a menu designed and created by Tetsuya Wakuda himself. It will be our one crazy night in Singapore with a superb gourmet meal.
I look forward to sharing all my food adventures with everyone in January when I return! Until then, please look through the archives and enjoy some of my old entries.
