Heaven and Earth Green Tea – Jasmin

I wasn’t too sure what Heaven and Earth Jasmine Green Tea was going to be like… It is not fizzy (well, I wasn’t expecting it to be…), it is moderately sweet with a slight hint of tea, but overall it is quite flowery and perfumed in taste. I don’t think I will bother drinking one […]

Restoran Vegetarian on Jalan Bestari, Bukit Indah, Malaysia

This evening I went to the Restoran Vegetarian on Jalan Bestari in Bukit Indah, and it turned into an interesting evening. First, the restaurant claims it is vegetarian, so I was quite surprised to find things such as roast meats, and sweet-and-sour pork on the menu. However, it does appear that all the food was […]

By on February 23, 2013 in Malaysia with 1 Comment

One thing Malaysia has is a lot of insects. As I type this I am sitting outside, it is 29°C (84°F) at 8 pm in the evening and I am drinking an ice cold beer, and the scene is dominated by two sounds – the sound of what I assume is crickets and the sound […]

They are sort of like a mini Cornish pasty, but with a curry filling and no chunky vegetables or meat. So, really, […]

Opened a Malaysian Bank account – very impressed with the service….

Today I opened a bank account and I am now the proud owner of a Malaysian cash card. Getting an account was becoming critical as my UK bank cards seem to be slowly dying one-by-one as they are being declined in shops (I think the bank is finding it odd I am over here), and […]

Dinner at Yeo’s Seafood Restaurant and monkeys on the road

Popped back to Yeo’s Seafood Restaurant for dinner. Not my first time there, and I doubt it will be my last! For dinner, I had the sweet and sour prawns, with steamed rice and mixed vegetables. One thing that was a little odd was there were prawns in the mixed vegetables! Is that common? If […]
