Wow What a Find

We took a walk in Little India Brickfields area of KL today. Super easy area to get to by public transport. Just go to Sentral KL station.  Go into Sentral Mall and head toward the Monorail.  There is a covered elevated crosswalk that will set you down at the outside edge of the area.  There are plenty of local food stalls, hawkers and restaurants.  Some lovely fountains and street art as well.  I will do a separate post about that later as there is lots to tease the senses. However the highlight of the day was lunch at Nadia Café.  It was a delight.  

We found a Taco Bell! Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Well we had to go…it is a rule when you are in a foreign land that you must go to the fast food places from your home country to compare and contrast.  At least that is Jeffrey’s rule.  To be honest I think he just wanted Tacos…lol  To the counter we went.  It looked right with all the branded images and outfits.  The ordering was a bit of a thing.  I have never been asked so many questions about a number 1 meal (2 Supreme Tacos and chips or fries)….ummm fries with tacos…no thank you.  But then the questions started….

Trip to Ya Nui Beach at the tip of Phuket, Thailand

We wandered out to the beach and it was beautiful….small but beautiful.  There were just a few people who were lying around on towels or sitting in the shade of the palm trees.  I mean just perfect.  We selected our spot and laid out our towel and within 5 min it started pouring down rain…lol.  So the entire beach gathered their items and dispersed mostly to scooters. We went across to one of the restaurants.  It was a delight beautiful garden atmosphere.  That is when I noticed the Black Bat Wing Orchid….casually sitting in a pot near a table.

Thai Cooking Class in Phuket Thailand

Food in Thailand is like a religion. I am not kidding. The food here is phenomenally delicious, fresh, healthy and inexpensive.

So if you find yourself in Thailand you should do yourself a favor and take a cooking class. Make sure it includes a trip to the local market for ingredients. The market is an amazing treat in itself full of color, scents and the sounds of Thailand.
