Serves you right, Ms. Robyn! We readers have been jealous for a good long while now ;-)


I was thinking the same thing as Gastronomer. I'm always feeling jealous after seeing the beautiful pictures you post of the tasty food!


Compared to KL, there are very few Indians here in Sarawak. Hence, no Deepavali public holiday. Worse, it's hard to find good, Indian-made roti canai here. And thosai? Impossible.

So even though it's harder to find Deepavali celebration food in KL, at least you have it. I'm jealous that you can even get thosai!

When Annie and I take a short trip to KL later this month, I'm going out to have nasi kandar every night!


yup, those milky, melt in mouth sweets. some sickeningly sweet (tooth-numbing even), while some got it just right.

now if only i can rmbr the Indian name for that. it's either Palkova, or Mysore Pak.

funky names eh?

Darn it - I found your site just after returning from my first trip to Malaysia (mainly Melaka). But after such a fantastic holiday, I'll be sure to stop by before I plan my next holiday :)


"Aiyoyo" would be considered an Indian expression of dismay or distress ...

mmm pistachio kulfi is what I grew up eating growing up around Punjabi Market in Vancouver... brings back childhood memories :)


did u check the large car park behind the row of shops across the road from YMCA? most of the street vendors were moved there this year. they erected a stage with live performances at night as well. it lasted the whole week before deepavali.


Tamils say "Aiyyo" (two syllables, like eye-yo) or "Aiyyiyo" (three syllables, same principle) to express dismay, although in this case I'd suggest a bemused "Tscha!" instead.

Fun & Fact

I keep want to start this comment with ‘good’ or ‘nice’ or ‘great’ but none of these seems strong enough, or appropriate enough for what you just posted.Just fantastic and mindblowing blog keep it up..!!!

Flights to India

Pix are very good.
Indian sweets are worldwide famous for its taste. I just love Jalebi, thanks for sharing.


Aiyo is a Tamil term too :) Have you ever tried Bengali sweets? They are lighter than North Indian ones as they do not have ghee and are made with cottage cheese

Indian & Pakistani sweets are very famous and very know all over the world!
