This blog captures the musings and anecdotes of the daily life of a Malaysian who is now living in Melbourne, Australia.


About Me

About Me:
The blog formerly known as Bak Chee Leng Lui 白痴靚女.

My Travels:
I have travelled from Malaysia down to the cool temperate skies of Australia, New Zealand, the burgeoning South Korea, the train expresses of modern Japan, wintery China, and even the busy streets of Singapore.

Australia has been the place I have lived furthest away from Malaysia, having lived and worked for 5 years in various places, predominantly Australia i.e Toowoomba, Sydney, visited Melbourne, Tasmania & Perth.

Korean shops
Strathfield @ Koreatown: Sydney @ Winter 2010.

I love food. Although I am more inclined to fitness these days, I still love my food...

My favourite is Kal Guk Su, an authentic korean homemade vermicelli knife cut style noodles.

The best I found was in Strathfield, NSW Australia. It sells for AUD10.00. Yum. The shop is a very small dinery located by the Strathfield train station (one that leads to the Strathfield mall)

The freshness of the home made kalguksu (which does not have so much additives) paired with fresh made kimchi makes the taste totally out of this world. You will think you left earth and went to heaven.

Unfortunately that cant be found in Malaysia, coz it needs to be made by a korean native for that korean authentic taste.

I also love hot chocolate.. one of my sinful calorific loves.. YUM

Meat pies are Yum. Get the home made ones, not the ones from Coles or Woolies... those are the shitty factory manufactured with all pasty and no flavour.

Vietnamese Pho are also one of my favourite delights. In New South Wales, and Melbourne, many native Vietnamese have settled and opened their own dineries. Of course, there are the good ones, and not so tasty ones. You just need to pick the right places.

I hope to try good Vietnamese pho when I head to Hanoi in August 2013.

Hong Cha is this place in OUG, near where I live. The food is cheap and good and served in abundance. YUM.

Of course, nothing also beats home cooked food made with love... especially during festive times.
