Bababoi is a compact Malaysian restaurant that specialises in Nyonya style cuisine. A unique and distinctive culture and tradition in Malaysia, blending Malay and Indian spices in Chinese cooking. It is a melting pot of a bygone era brought back by Bababoi on the northwest bank of the Yarra River next to the heritage listed Mission of Seafarers.
Opened in Dec 2016 is this stylish and slick restaurant in the heart of George Town. The head chef, Aldrien, called it a modern Japanese fusion style cuisine using the freshest ingredients and produces to masterly craft an exciting menu that has never been seen here in Penang at any of the Japanese restaurants.
It has been 15 years since I last visited Chiang Mai. The place has changed. There are so many choices when it comes to book a hotel based on price, location, hotel ammenities and nearby attractions. After spending many hours researching the hotels and getting my bearing on Chiang Mai (google map), I have decided to book a hotel outside the old city. An obvious choice since I have already been to the old city the last time.
First night dinner in Chiang Mai, I thought what better way to start by trying out this place which is raved by thousands of travelers in Trip Advisor as a must to eat when in Chiang Mai. It was packed at 6:30pm when we got there. We had to wait for a table. About 10 minutes which was reasonable being such a popular place.
It's casual, frenetic and fast but the food did take some time to arrive.
I must have broke my own record for making two dishes in less than half an hour that cost less than $20 AUD. It goes to show that it can be done at home without costing an arm and a leg. This is how I do it.
After a day tour with Enjoy Bagan Tour visiting Chauk provincial market, historic Salay's museum, Mount Popa and a sunset boat cruise, I was wondering if we will be ready for our 20 km cycling tour through dirt path inside Bagan Archaeological Zone the next morning, on the first day of new year 2017.
From Chauk provincial market to Yoke Sone Kyaung monastery and museum in Salay to Mount Popa and a sunset boat cruise on Ayeyarwaddy River. This was the highlight of my recent trip to Myanmar.
I have planned this trip for almost a year. It is one of my most anticipated trip as Myanmar opened its door to tourism not too long ago, with tourists slowly coming in since 2009 and becoming more popular in recent years.
So what has happened to Pokemon Go? When the world first real time, location based game was released in July in selected countries, including Australia, it was a phenomenal success with millions of download within days. Taking the world by storm and everyone by surprise with mixed reviews to catch and train the virtual creatures. People congregated at several hot spots in popular places throughout Melbourne city. It was bizarre to see that many people arching their head slightly downwards and staring at their hand-held device. Their minds focused on the tiny screen. This was a daily occurrence, increasing to a larger crowd during the evening and weekend.
