To Malaysia and Back!...



Durian feast by the roadside in Penang...



So after a long hiatus from the world of blogging, I return to say I just came back from Malaysia. It's been 2 years since I returned home, and my tummy was the one planning the vacation!


My one grumble...Malaysians only had one thing on their mind: To remind me how fat I've become since I last returned. Sheesh. They couldn't even let me enjoy my vacation without commenting about my weight...directly.


"Wah, so fat!"
"Wah, put on weight!"
"Your face very big already lar"...




Sheesh...I come back once in two years, let me eat in peace lar, ok?




Top on my list of must-eats was:


KFC!
Durian (see pic)
Ipoh Kuey Teow
Cockles...
Char Koay Teow (with the cockles and Ipoh taugeh)
Nasi Lemak
White Coffee
Teh Tarik
Economy Rice
Mamak food!
And almost everything else Malaysian...




Oh well, the tummy was happy. The weighing scale was not...


And then when I returned to Vancouver, my classmates and I went to eat: Malaysian food! Haha...




Daphne's empty coconut at the Malaysian restaurant in Vancouver...




Returning to Vancouver did not earn me any weight-comments; the Vancouverites were more fascinated by my "gorgeous tan". I had a good laugh because I managed the tan even with all the hiding from the sun!


See for yourself! The durian picture was taken the first few days I was back in Malaysia, and the coconut picture was taken a few days after I returned to Vancouver...
