We're Going Live, Baby


I thought I'd be able to blog easily while on vacation in London.

I was so wrong.

Not having access to the internet has been utter misery, most of all because I am unable to blog. Bald Eagle isn't complaining, as he is now able to see more of me!

Going to London is like going home. Hearing the words "Mind The Gap" is equivalent to a "Welcome Home" to us. :-)

As I read The Times this morning, I came across an article on Malaysian cuisine. I read on and spotted my friend, Adly's name in that article. Adly - you're famous now! :-) It's a great article, and hopefully, Londoners will be tempted by the wonderful descriptions and gorgeous pictures of Malaysian food and make a trip to Malaysia to sample our diverse cuisine. Sounds like a sales pitch? Well, who wouldn't be proud of our local cuisine? Malaysian food rocks.

My friend in Norway, Gard Karlsen, has been constantly prodding me to work on a Google Map which shows the location of the eating establishments which I have been blogging about. Well, his nagging has paid off! This is the first version of the A Whiff Of Lemongrass Food Tour. It is not intended to provide directions to the location, but it will be useful if you're looking for food in a certain area. Details of the restaurant and location can be found when you click on the flag. This map will also be included on the sidebar for easy reference.

barbie said...

Hey woman, hv fun!! But u always do anyway. :-D Looks like this time u have to fit in food 'testing' on top of all that shopping! Hmm, maybe then u'll come back with 18 bags instead of 20. ;-)

sunshine said...

Oh yes, i MISS "mind the gap". Heck, I miss the smell of the air in the undergound, especially when a train is coming in. The Jubilee line, which is deeper underground has the best breeze!!!

Miss London.....

babe_kl said...

Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy said...

The Cooking Ninja said...

oh yeah, I know what's like not being able to surf for days when we switched providers.

Henry Yeo said...

Woohoo!!!!

All the festival menus are up.....
Looks likes all 3 KL Hilton restaurants are pretty pricy...but the menu listed probably will make me die once I am finished with them....Sigh....so little money, so many choices....

*must resist Lafite's offer* (that is one hell of a price)

Any food bloggers want to divide and conquer the MIGF this year.

Pink Elle said...

Enjoy your holiday! I love London! Can't wait to hear all about your stories!

btw, out of curiosity since I'm planning a similar trip next year, how much was your airfare? Whatever I've been quoted has been horrendously high!

fatboybakes said...

[still in "i hate you" mode]...harumph....
while minding the gap, make sure you mind your wallet...my mother's been picked twice, my sis once, and i almost got picked too, luckily so fat, so not so easy to whip out my wallet from front jeans pocket. felt kinda sexy though, as the perpetrators were young girls. youth of today. tsk.

wmw said...

What happened to my earlier comment??? I was saying that if you were to blog, how about a live feed of you feasting on roast duck! hee hee...

Kenny Mah said...

How's London so far? Or have you been moving around the British Isles by now, leaving languishing Englishmen in clamour for your lemongrass scent? :P

But anyway, stop blogging and coming online... enjoy your trip to the fullest! The Internet will still be around when you come back! LOL
