    Sticky Dicks

    October 16, 2019 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 33 °C

    One of Bun’s dad’s favourite snacks was a deep fried dough that he called bones, or sticky dicks. Resembling a foot long doughnut, he would eat them while having a coffee. The shop where we had our tau foo far also sold a range of pastries which Bun and Jan ateRead more

    Night Market

    October 20, 2019 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Some things never change and others things are changing so quickly. The night markets don’t appear to have changed all of the time we have been coming to Malaysia. Some of the goods that are sold are traditional, some are modern and much is food. Sugar cane is still squeezed and the juice collected for a drink. Similarly coconut water is drained from the coconuts and bottled in front of you.

    What is changing is the approach to litter, waste, plastics etc. Bins in the malls ask for waste to be separated for recycling. Plastic straws are (should) no longer be served with drinks, but you may request one if you want one. There are campaigns about the environment in many places. I wasn’t aware that - if food waste was a country, it would be the third largest contributor to carbon dioxide after USA and China.

    The food available is becoming very westernised. Major chains are in all of the malls and many of the streets. “Tiger Sugar” that sells a whole range of drinks, but all with lashings of brown sugar. I guess it won’t be long before they catch up the rest of the world with the “diabesity” epidemic.

    2. Seetag

    January 13, 2019 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    An unserem 2. Seetag haben wir es ruhig angehen lassen. In ruhe frühstücken stand auf dem Plan. Für heute hatten wir die Wellness Oase auf dem Schiff gebucht. Das war auch gut so, denn es war auf Deck unerträglich heiß und der Planet brannte. Nun ja, wie sind ja auch in den Tropen.
    In der Wellness-Oase hatten wir einen schönen schattigen Platz und auch Ruhe unter Palmen. Auch ein Whirlpool unter freiem Himmel war zum abkühlen da.
    Natürlich besuchten wir auch die Sauna, dort war es fast kühler wie auf Deck. Zum Mittagessen reisten wir schnell auf ne Almhütte. Bei ner zünftigen Musi stärkten wir uns mit nem halben Brathendl und Semmelknödel, sowie Vanilleeis mit heißen Himbeeren. Da nun der Bauch so voll war, blieb uns nichts anderes übrig als den restlichen Tag bis zum Abend in der Wellness-Oase zu liegen und Gott ein lieber Mann sein zu lassen.
