Beautiful post. Happy new year to you both and i hope our paths cross in our beloved turkey in 2013. xo


There may be greater writer or photographer, but the vitality, generosity, honesty and earnest come from you two good people is why a couple of years on, EatingAsia remains the only one blog I visit regularly. Wish 2013 a grander and richer year for you both and thanks for bringing readers to places, things, people, many of us are unlikely to have experienced in person.


richer as in $$$$ and in mind. :-)


Thanks Katie, and same to you! Would love to meet you in Turkey... but we wouldn't complain if it were Italy instead. ;)

Katy, such nice words! Thanks so much for being a loyal long-time follower of the blog. The very best to you and your family for 2013!


Happy New Year to you ad Dave! We are very appreciative for your blog and photos, as they give us the courage to step out of our comfort zone to try new things when we travel. It is also nice to see a travel and photo blog with integrity, as they are hard to come by.

Love reading this entry! Happy New Year!

Hello Robyn,
Really enjoyed reading your interesting blog. We have many parallels. I'm originally from Malaysia (Raub, near Fraser's Hill), lived in Boston and am a wannabe writer. I too fell in love with Turkey when I visited back in 1999. Having a Turkish friend helped introduced me to their wonderful food.

I look forward to reading more about your experience in M'sia. Sounds like you're making it your permanent home. My last time back home was in early 2001.

Have a great Chinese New Year as well!


Hi Eileen - I know Raub, as I recall there is a fantastic chicken curry there. Boston was long ago, grad school, for us but it was a great couple of years. Yes, George Town Penang is home for now, but we are always on the lookout for the "second place". That said, having put so much time into our shop house reno we plan to be here at least half of the time for a good long while. Will be spending more time in Turkey over the next couple years, though.
Thanks for reading and gong xi fa cai!
