Food I’m missing

Barely back in Paris and I’m hankering for Malaysian food. Apparently a fortnight was hardly enough for me to eat to my heart’s content, and boy did I eat. Gone was the 3 meals per day “rule” which got easily doubled up when different people tried to feed me at different times of the day. Not only that, I wouldn’t even think about photographing the food but just grabbed the plate/bowl and started wolfing them down. The damage? Just under 3kg of weight gain… (eeep!)

From homemade favourites such as popiah, mee suah (longevity noodles in Chinese red wine – not shown), bak chang and assam laksa – made upon request; my aunt and grandaunts are simply awesome! – to eating out as well as trying to finish up Chinese New Year meals, it was a full-fledged makan-thon! My family was not the only people enthusiastic in feeding me, my close friends put in major contribution too! Had I remembered to photograph everything, this post is going to be very, very long indeed.

Now, I can only look at these and drool at the memory of them. I guess I could take a stab at cooking some of these, but the ingredients are not exactly easy to come by. I do have all required ingredients to make a batch of nasi lemak one of these days, and I should also test out the assam laksa paste that I smuggled back in my luggage. There are also herbal soups to be made (Chinese medicine halls provide some good mixes).

Now if you would excuse me, I’m going to snack on some satay fish.
