5 most eatable things, KL/PJ

BSG's most 1-2-eat places

V have been tagged by delightful London's English Rose Wennn to tell all ( our quickie version )
of our favorite makan places in town

1. This hallmark of quick plain eating is found all over Metropolitan KL's bright n cheerful busy corner lots, shopping malls & is easily available most times of the day. Cool, clean & tidy with nice friendly familiar meals , it is really wonderful for young ( & probably underaged ) people watching and a fast snack of bubbling cold coke over some golden crispy chips, & sometimes even as a relief centre while awaiting the arrival of da newfound fresh but tardy business associates /online dates... Our fav burger. Good olde Mcs ! Nobody's complaining (except strangely those what-t-fs from da Health Ministry who claim this thing to be undernutritious and a health hazard ).

So we shall keep it under wraps for now.

2. Then this unassuming corner lot behind the ex Lim Kok Wing Creative School of Technology in Mayang Jaya, PJ

... with one of the freshest & best roti canai & telur tengah masak this side of town.

3. KL's Original Gluttons Corner comprising Chinatown , Jln Tongshin and Jln Alor areas. Authentic mostly centuries old unchanged backStreet Chinese cuisine.

Just one perfectly grilled chickens wings for starters. Then also can jalan disana disini.

4. Klang Valley's premier bustling enclave of USJ / Subang Jaya.
USJ 2's resident Tai Chow ( Big Fry ) Maestro whipping up
aroma strangling, lips quivering, & chopsticks clattering
...Hokkian Mee ( Big Noodles ) like this !!

5. Spanking New Shopping Malls in town .
V actually love Malls like this because there are so many people so many things to see.
Also the food. Mostly in the Courts or the far corners. Wonderful choices more choices !
but still v will look only for this fragrantly stinky one. Incomparable Assam Laksa ,
another unforgettable , new , fresh feel.
Thanks sweet wendiee !

Lumut , Manjung (Perak, Malaysia)

Quaint Riverview quickies

Perak was one of the richest States in then Malaya with its almighty tycoons & 'peraky' ( silvery) tin mines around the Kinta Valley. Just so you know the next time you are in rural Perak and are near Menglembu, Pusing, Papan, Pasir Putih, Tanjung Tualang, or Batu Gajah watch out for the numerous pot holes ( abandoned mines ) all over left and right which were once hives of massive activities now serene ponds and even beautiful lakes !

Capital city Ipoh achieved several notable accolades including the cleanest town in the country, the most beautiful girls, the fattest chickens, the best food and ...
...the best massage parlours. Notwithstanding the best missionary schools too.
How very nice.

But where to go for a secret quick romp around some statuesque swaying curvy coconut trees ?
...behind some limestone hills ? No no da city is too near and too indiscreet... the caves ?
Nope, too dark and sinister. Then the smell.

So where else... but... the beaches of course ! Think small kampong think Lumut !

Only 2 hours away ( then) and yonder to Pangkor ( another hour by ferry) if need another quiet night for the unfinished.
Those were the simple unhurried days...

Today they have planted many trees beside the lush sea breezed forests. What da....?

Still don't understand...

Anyway, da sight of this giant piece of majestic modern anchor reminds you that the sea is near.

Welcome to Lumut Waterfront ! West Wing near the yatch club. Finally some really fresh air and da smell of unhurried nature.

No no we are not in Suzhou China just only a thirsty step away from our destination !
But really nice authentic archy entrance though, didn't know you can still get it here, right ?

Quick stop and a nice simple sweetener of iced kachang ( multicoloured Malay dessert ) beside da jetty.

& lets not forget these quick grabs ? ...and the ta pau ( takeaways) for the city folks u know.
Afterall these signaturely infamous satay/seafood BBQ chewies + salted marine items are available all over Lumut Waterfront and town centre & irritatingly but prominently decorate ( or mar ?) the Waterfront landscape here. Nicely packed and displayed in a few hundred almost identical shops here ( count to believe ! ). Never question why ok !

Absolutely crunchy pungent satay fish ( dried bbq/salted fish fillet ), wonderful with the ice kachang or fresh coconut water at many foodstalls nearby. Dats truly bcoz theres no Danish brew neither Singha what doya xpect !

Another most stinky delight, da hauntingly addictive but uncheap BBQ/spiced cuttlefish.

All these are available inside this circular Waterfront Promenate just beside the Jetty

Also look for this buxom delight, bold, fragrant & original.

Great kampong Laksa Melayu, full fishy taste and very hot ! Looks simple but really a classic and not to be missed if you are here.

Fried chickens if you really must have have them !

...and de ikan bakar ( BBQ fish Malay style) with delicious sambal.
Ferry has arrived...see you on de other sunny bright & blue sandy side...
...time to go

Beauties and the RICE

Chinese opulence , Japanese artistry

The single most important Asian staple meal is rice , derived from the smallist grasslike padi plant and is the equivalent of bread in the West, whether in its basic edible whitish grainy boiled or steamed forms together with simple side dishes of meats and vegetables or the atrociously Xtravagent scrumptious spreads in wedding feasts or drunken banquets celebrating yet another worthy conquest in the Emperors' courts.

Interestingly today you can still enjoy such kingsly flavors with all its intoxicating colors and selection in KL if only you are a bit more adventurous, although it will not cost you an arm and a leg. We are talking about the common economy rice as sold everywhere in Chinese restaurants across towns and villages.

But for the younger modern set no worries these Japanese 'healthy' little delights in cozy surroundings even unstoppable rotating table tops will never cease to awe you with their impeccable tastes and sheer creativities and endless colors with an amazing array of unbelievable gems sitting on yes !
...more RICE this time vinegared sticky ones ( do check whether its is better if you should just preserve them and take some of them home and display them in your treasured the corner )
