The rebirth of Ipoh Old Town

Ipoh in Malaysia has experienced a reversal of fortunes after decades of economic decline and tourism obscurity. I first went to Ipoh in 2010, and after visiting again in 2019 I can say its revival is real. My first visit was when I was on my way to Pangkor Island. Rather than go straight through from KL I stopped in Ipoh. It’s also a travel hub for onward travel to the Cameron Highlands. None of the guesthouses I was staying at in Malaysia had mentioned anything about Ipoh, but I always like...

Where I’m At: February, 2019 – Kuala Lumpur edition

Greetings from Kuala Lumpur and another edition of Where I’m At – my monthly summary of where I’ve been and other site news. Where I’ve Been Saigon Apart from the first and last days of January, I spent the whole month in Saigon. I started the month in Pattaya and Bangkok, before returning to Vietnam. Originally I was going to visit the Mekong Delta, but I needed a productive month of not moving around. January is also the best month of the year in Saigon, so I made the most of that. Th...

KY eats – Cafe TOFF, Macao

My traveling buddy while at Macao is someone whose diet consists of a heavy dosage of avocado, so after a great many days of subjecting herself to the local diet which has none of this “butter fruit” (as locals call it), we embarked in a mission to find one. Which is how I ended up at Cafe TOFF. TOFF, Macao TOFF is situated just a stone’s throw away from Lou Lim Ioc Garden, a public garden with a beautiful lotus lake that’s worthy of visit. If you’re there and have visited enough churches, why ...

KY eats – Tiny Porridge House at Macao – 合誠小食店

I think Macao people has got life all figured out, instead of having shops and restaurants all day long, if you go out on the streets at 11 am, you’d see that most shops are still tightly shut. It isn’t until around noon that they get started, and of course, by 8 pm it’s going home time again. Which probably contributes to them having one of the longest life expectancy in the world. Don’t work overly hard, have a balanced work-life, I guess? 合誠小食店 Anyway, walking from Ole Tai Sum hotel in the ...

Mandarin.

Sarah Zhang uses the recent appearance of a mandarin duck in Central Park as a springboard to share an interesting bit of etymology: Yes, true, mandarin ducks are native to China, where Mandarin is the official language. But the word mandarin has a more roundabout origin. It does not come from Mandarin Chinese, which refers to itself as putonghua (or “common speech”) and China, the country, as zhongguo (or “Middle Kingdom”). It doesn’t come from any other variant of Chinese, either. Its origins ...

Chiang Mai trip report – the provincial powerhouse of Southeast Asia

Every time I return to Chiang Mai (which has been often) I marvel at how hard this inland provincial city punches above its weight. After thinking about this I looked at a map of Asia, and I can’t think of a non-capital city (and not a port/coastal city) that has as much to offer as Chiang Mai. Sure there are bigger inland cities in China, but not with the international appeal as Chiang Mai. In the future I think Da Nang will be the city to watch, but it has some way to go to catch up with the...

KY eats – Keong Kei Lamb Stew, Macau

Last November I made my second trip to the gambling capital of the world – Macao. My previous trip was all the way back in 2014 so I guess it’s about time to revisit one of the most walk-able cities in the world. While Macau is famous for their casinos and many churches, what interests in, as usual, is the local food. Today we’re going to talk about one of the more popular night hawker spots on the peninsular – Keong Kei Lamb Stew. Keong Kei Lamb Stew, Macau Keong Kei (強記秘製羊腩煲) is located just ...

Notes on Macau – Where US casinos and Portuguese heritage meet

When I was in Hong Kong I visited the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, which meant a trip to Macau. I was in Macau unexpectedly last December so I didn’t expect to be back again the following December. I like visiting Macau, even though I’m not into casinos. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Historic Centre of Macao is always worth another visit, and seeing how the new city areas are being transformed is unlike anything you’ll see in the west. My first visit to Macau was probably in 2006. I...
