You know that feeling you get when you find a good restaurant that leaves you wanting to go back for more? That’s how I felt after my first visit to Hello Vietnam. So far I have been there 3 times in the past month alone. They are a fairly new restaurant with a very big menu! I have never visited Vietnam so I can’t say if it is authentic (I assume it is!) but the food sure as hell tastes amazing. There are only a handful of Vietnamese restaurants in Christchurch and this is definitely the best.

Hello everyone! If you follow my Instagram or Twitter you will probably know that I was back in sunny Kuching along with M. We were there for almost 2 weeks before going to China. I’ll write a post on China later.
We were fortunate enough to be back during the Ramadan period! This has always been a favorite period of mine so I was really glad M would get a chance to experience it. The excitement and fervor during this period as our Muslim friends prepare to celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri provides a very different atmosphere as you go about town. This month-long period is coloured with an array of sights and smells to tickle your senses.
I often find people asking me “Do people in Sarawak still live in trees?”. Usually they are just teasing me but sometimes….you can just tell that they aren’t. Well just to clarify any doubts, we do not live on trees. In fact, Kuching is quite a concrete jungle that is only growing bigger and bigger.
Every year I go home, the number of new malls and developments are forever increasing. It is insane! But with that comes a wealth of choices. It would be entirely silly to mall hop when you are on holiday as some are just not worth wasting precious time on. Although if you consider shopping to be a sport (I do….) then by all means shop to your heart’s content. But if you are not into mall hopping, read on. I will tell you where are the best places to shop in Kuching and why.
It is Labour Day today in Malaysia so I get to spend some time with the family. So while everyone is resting, I thought I’d continue writing the ‘Kuching Series’.
Today I want to elaborate more on Sarawak Laksa. As I said in my previous post, finding the best Laksa is a difficult task because it is dependant on the individual. I can give you a whole list of stalls that are said to sell the best Laksa in Kuching and there will be people who disagree. IMO, as long as the Laksa possesses the characteristics below, I think you are in for a real treat.
