marinated deepfried pork with ground roasted rice with chili powder. this really had my tongue on fire but seriously satisfaction level 99. again, clean sharp taste yet delivering all the medley of thai spices and essence of thai food. wrap with greens for crunch and tame the spiciness. love it!

apart from food, @thelocalcanteen also prides themselves with their crafted beers and alcohol. do check out some of their really nice retro kitchen wares too

when you are too drunk and sleepy af to wake up, have pho. and only pho from #phoha that is. countless choices of pho in hcmc, but this definitely score with locals and tourists alike. 7 nights in HCMC and i only get to know you on the last. tsk.

10 minutes away from kota kinabalu airport, a hidden gem selling some crazy nasi lemak. the slightly wetter rice is pandan fragrant af and a very generous scoop of sambal that is a sweet delight (definitely not for those who wants a spicy kick). goreng game strong here; choose fish, their popular very aromatic ayam berempah but please, you have to order a side of their beef redang please! small portion though and all under RM$10!

no london trip is completed without a good old english hightea. at this old world charm library turned lounge, the tables are set out in between little alcoves of bookcases. bonus because we got a table with window seat overlooking thames to end our holidays! apart from an exquisite selection of twinings with jars to look at and smell, suggest to go free flowing bubbles option. dont even remember our glasses were EVER less than half full! exemplary service and very knowledgeable staff. totally coming back to @londonmarriottcountyhall for tea if we visit london again.

700g canadian lobster (£26). half grilled half steamed, you really can have the best of both worlds. correction, dip into their butter sauce and you may just score a third. now you don't think they get by with just fresh lobster, their fries are equally addictive! p.s forget the shell cracker, a simple pick does the job getting all the succulent fresh meat off the shell.. intact *heavy breathing*

yesterday's me time at @tanameracoffee, thamrin city. spent good hours there with dark interiors that did not feel intimating but roused another intimacy with coffee instead. did you know the good folks at @tanameracoffee only source the beans directly with the local farmers in indonesia? this drastically help improves the lives of the very passionate micro lot farmers but who are usually at proverty stricken level. can't help feeling that coffee can do good all over again. espresso blend i had was lighter and milder compare to @giyanticoffee's blue batak though

so i asked a local where is good for martabak. little did i know i was brought to die a little yesterday. haha. must had been like a bucket of nutella, a can of condensed milk and mountainous grated cheese on my one single pancake! exaggerating i know but you get the drift. then i died more when pak mopped the crisp top with another slab of planta. 😱 i swore he was grinning when he saw my shell-shocked face. verdict: tooooo rriicchh for me to enjoy la. shiok no doubt but it gets really heavy. not cheap for street food at S$10 but the only available humongous size can feed a family.

how to be happy in indonesia? que soda gembira. or literally, happy soda. this mocktail of only three ingredients, soda water, sweet condensed milk, and sugar syrup is like our bandung drink but deconstructed. instead of water, soda by the side makes this colorful beverage fizzyly satisfying! you know how some drinks in singapore now come with 50% or 25%, little or no sugar option right? f that, here gives you total customer ownership. you just stir with your straw to your desired sweetness, like real time can. pharrell williams should totally do another mv of happy with this drink throughout.

happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to have coffee.
