MATTA Fair 2019 Highlights – Travel Trends For Year 2019

First of the two MATTA Fair 2019 has come to an end yesterday. The 2nd half of the event will be held sometimes this September.

The Proboscis Monkey of Borneo – Proof that Size Matters After All

“Take you to see proboscis monkey?” suggested the taxi drivers lined up at the entrance to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. Frankly, I had no idea what they were talking about. My visit to the Malaysian State of Sabah on the island of Borneo had two goals: see the endangered orangutans and sun bears. I’d never heard of proboscis monkeys, so later that afternoon I turned to Father Google. The moment I saw a photo of these strange primates, I knew I had to see them in the... The post T...

PHOTO: Lucky Closeup of a Bornean Thick-Billed Spiderhunter

I traveled to the Malaysian State of Sabah on the island of Borneo mainly to see orangutans in the wild and to learn about the endangered Sun Bears. An unexpected bonus was the astonishing birdlife. I spotted Rhinoceros hornbills, with their weird red and gold banana-shaped headdresses, as well as black and white Oriental Pied Hornbills. Unfortunately, my telephoto lens was not good enough to capture decent photos of either species, as they were sitting in high treetops, surrounded by dense foli...

Best pancake recipes around world

Debates rage in the US over the superiority of waffles versus pancakes. Poll the global community, though, and the answer becomes obvious: pancakes. While several countries have their own takes on waffles, traditional pancake recipes span the continents, incorporate more creative flavors, fall on both sides of the sweet-savory divide, and come in all different shapes and sizes, proving just how seriously the world takes this delicious staple. Take note IHOP: Each of these 13 delicious interna...

How to Get Around Southeast Asia on the Cheap

Posted: 2/28/2019 | February 28th, 2019 Southeast Asia may be a huge region — but it’s super easy to get around. It’s well-traveled (backpackers have been following “the banana pancake trail” since the late ’60s), and there’s an extensive network designed to ensure that you can easily get from A to B. In Hanoi and need to get to Bangkok? In Vientiane and want to go Malaysia? Or Ko Samui? No problem. Someone can arrange that. But what’s the best way to get around Southeast Asia on a budget? Ho...

Protecting the Terminally Cute Sun Bears of Borneo

At high noon, I stood on the viewing platform at the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Center in Sabah, Borneo. In the intense humidity, rivers of sweat streamed down my face and neck. Within minutes, my T-shirt was soaking wet. I peered down into the enclosures below expecting these smallest of all the bear species to be sleeping or at best lethargic, but to my surprise they were active. Borneo is in the tropics, where it is always steamy. These bears are not bothered by the heat and humidity.... T...

Discover the KattenKabinet: Amsterdam’s Museum Devoted to Works of Art Featuring Cats

Image by T_Marjorie, via Flickr Commons There’s been quite a bit of barking in the media lately to herald the reopening of the American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog, relocating from St. Louis to New York City’s Park Avenue. What’s a cat person to do? Perhaps decompress within Amsterdam’s KattenKabinet… In contrast to the Museum of the Dog’s glitzy, glass-fronted HQ, the Cat Cabinet maintains a fairly low profile inside a 17th-century canal house.

The Brooklyn of Penang – Seven Streets Precinct / South George Town

I’ve been a frequent visitor to Penang over the last decade, being one of the few places I visit on an annual basis. I spend most of my time wandering the streets of the UNESCO World Heritage area of Georgetown, as it’s undisputedly the main attraction. In the last few years though I’ve been lured out of the old town by two cafes, which has lead me to further explore the area south of the old town. This area has a distinct character from the old town. It has a lot of the same architecture, but...

PHOTO: Orangutan Best Buddies – So Like Humans

Humans have long been fascinated by all members of the ape family. Orangutans, second largest of the apes after gorillas, rank extremely high on our fascination meter. There’s no mystery about this. We look at orangutans and see ourselves. I felt the same way when I visited the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre and watched the human like behavior of orangutans. This pair may have been mother and child, but to me their behavior screamed “best buddies.” Having successfully fended off the mac...

What to Expect at Security When Flying El Al

The national carrier of Israel, El Al, and other Israeli carriers are known for its stringent security. Having had experienced it a few weeks earlier on my flight from New York to Tel Aviv, I was fairly confident I knew what was coming. I thought that perhaps security was so strict because of the flight route: New York’s JFK to Tel Aviv, but I soon came to learn it was the same at every airport that El Al, or any other Israeli carrier, flies. This is my personal experience and may not match your...

Pandan desserts from Southeast Asia

Some of the tastiest , most eye-catching desserts in Southeast Asia are bright green. While most neon desserts can typically credit their hue to artificial dyes, the verdant color is all thanks to a single natural ingredient: pandan, a plant that tastes of vanilla, tropical fruits, and flowers all wrapped in one. From silky, sweet custards to sticky rice cakes, the spiky leaves of the tropical pandan plant give desserts a distinctive grassy sweetness and a playful green hue. Also known as scr...

An Appreciation for the A380, an Airplane That Never Should Have Been Built

Less than 20 years after the aircraft program was launched, Airbus announced last week that it would begin winding down production on the A380. I’ve always thought this was an airplane that never should have been built. If Airbus breaks even on this program, then that would be the best possible outcome. If that doesn’t scream “not successful,” I don’t know what does. But that doesn’t mean it was all bad. In fact, as a passenger, the airplane was — and is — a delight to fly. So, consider th...

When it comes to hawker dishes in Sabah, the most famous of them all is none other than north Borneo’s very own version of pork noodle – Sang Nyuk Mian (生肉面), or raw pork noodle in Hakka, the most spoken Chinese dialect this part of Malaysia. Melanian Sang Nyuk Mian, Kota Kinabalu To be honest, the difference between this and the KL version isn’t particularly huge.
