One thing you are immediately made aware of when visiting Malaysia is that they love to eat!
You don't want to come between a Malaysian and their meal, heads will roll. They are serious about each meal. There is no such thing as "eating on the go" every meal is precise in it's own way.
Everything is planned around food. I don't blame them, it's that good.
There are some things I have stayed away from, like Durian a fruit that smells like Micheal Jordan's old gym socks. Apparently it's really good, if you can get past the smell.
I haven't acquired the taste for anything cooked in coconut milk yet.
And I still don't prefer anything spicy.
But for those adventurous souls there is a whole palate of foods to discover. Recently a good friend was sweet enough to introduce me to some local tastes. Some things I would have never tried on my own; otak-otak and chicken gizzards I actually ended up enjoying it all, except a weird drink that involved beans!

|By far my favorite meal, I can eat this everyday.|
