through the fire


Don't ask me what I was doing here. I was quite close to the flame. All I know is that was my order of Fried Rice and yes, it was delicious. In and around KL, there are stall/restaurants, mainly Chinese owned, that we call 'Tai Chao' (loosely means big fry). Probably the best 'homecooked' meals you can get. The one I frequent is in Jalan Ampang next to the Ampang Mini-Market and the wedding photography studio. Finding this Tai Chao isn't difficult, getting there is. Jalan Ampang is known for its awful traffic. So, it's good you're ready for dinner no earlier than 9pm on weeknights.

A really interesting caption to go with this photo. It made me want to re-look at it several times to see all of the definition.

The more I see of pictures like this, of such diversity, originality & colour, the more I stick by what I wrote you on the previous (not the snake king!:-)). You could have a go at original photography of all themes, not just protrait. Unless that's what you want to do.
I had a great Chinese lunch today. I showed the lady who owns the restaurant my pic of China in Lisbon (see that last Monday or Tuesday?). She knew the place, but was more interested in my flash pen on the table. Ended up with me telling her that her compatriots were gonna take over big in about 10 years from now. What a big smile that brought out!!! Great week, E!

This fire really 'heated' you up you guys, didn't it? LOL!

Ame, Ipoh Kway Tiao? Wow! Your husband knows his food! The best Ipoh Kway Tiao is in Ipoh (of course!) but there are a couple of places in KL.
