That first photo is a masterpiece!

Rasa Malaysia

Robyn - is this bowl of laksa from Kek Seng?
Aiyayah, it's morning and you are killing me, I am practically drooling now.


It's always so pleasant to read your blog posts, coz all the photos are oh so beautiful!


Oh my! That walking tour is simply wonderful; I have printed it out to take with me. I was actually happy to read it, as I was beginning to wonder - having spent the last week reading about Malaysia - if we should maybe just skip Thailand (we've got almost nothing booked, save a guest house in Melaka and one in Penang)and spend the whole month there. But now I'm anticipating Thailand too!

Street Foodie

Hey we were in Chiang Mai last week - I thought the Sunday street food market was amazing!


Simon - the photographer says 'thank you'!

Bee - not sure. Will have to consult Dave on that.

Kenny T - many thanks!

Lynn - oh no, don't skip Thailand. If you're game I recommend renting a car in CM and driving to Lampang and beyond -- either west for the Mae Hong Son loop or east, to Nan province, which is beautiful. Our favorite place to stay in CM is Baan Orapin. Google it -- lovely, comfortable guesthouse in a great location just across the river from Wororat Market. Have a great trip!

Street Foodie - yep, it offers a good intro to various local specialties.


Penang does whip up some of the BEST laksa. bar none.
those thick, succulent & mashed mackerel paired with the smooth, slithery rice noodles. and the pungent, tangy and fiery soup .... wow.


I'd love to try this. Unfortunately there are few authentic Malaysian restaurants in Toronto. And it's a long drive for me to the city. Sigh.


Looks the same as Malaysia one. Wondering how’s the taste like?
