I have always wanted to try abalone. I mean why not? It is supposed to be a delicacy and highly sought after, so it has got to be good right? Wrong. Recently when we were in Korea (where we ate quite a number of strange things) we sat down to lunch and heard that abalone was on the cards and I thought you beauty, I am finally going to get to try them! After the table is laid with all the [...]
Don’t let their appearances fool you. While they might be over 70, look old and wrinkly and tell you all about their five grandchildren, they are as fit as ever. Jeju Island, in South Korea, is famous for it’s female divers. Known as the mermaids of Jeju or ‘haenyo’ around the island, these women dive in the ocean to gather clams, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, abalone, or seaweed, selling their catch at local markets and restaurants. The incredible thing is, they [...]
We had read about this place in Melaka called Capitol Satay on numerous blogs and we were looking forward to heading there for a meal. Then flicking through the latest Malaysian Lonely Planet in the hostel I saw it was in there. Hmmmm. It is not that I don’t like the Lonely Planet, I like the easy to follow information on the history, layout, sights and transport. I am just a bit wary of any resturants they mention as more [...]
Thinking about heading to South East Asia in a few weeks has got us thinking about sandy beaches and sunny days. We took this stunning snap on our visit to Angthong National Marine Park, Thailand. The park is an archipelago of 42 islands in the Gulf of Thailand, and we spent the day exploring a few of them. Several are completely overrun by tourists and it is sad to see the impact that it has on the marine life in the area. [...]
Pull up a chair, grab your knife and fork and tuck into to the latest foodie adventure. Bon appetit! I will own up right here and now I did not try fish head soup, a dish which is touted as one of the ‘signature’ dishes of the country. I may have given it a go if we had been in Singapore for longer, but with all the other amazing dishes on offer, eating a fish’s head with its eyeballs [...]
I am not a sweet tooth, so my food escapades usually tend to centre around savoury food. Therefore, in the months before we went to Thailand, I was salivating at the thought of all the noodle, rice, veggie and soup dishes I was going to devour. So imagine my surprise when one of my favourite foods turned out to be crepes! One night not long into our trip I was wandering down the street to (yes I will admit [...]
