Day 4 (Malaysia): Mid Valley Mega Mall

Too much shopping and food.

We began the day with some kaya bao (steamed bread buns filled with coconut jam) and lo mai gai (glutinous sticky rice).

Another cup of teh tarik for me.

Christmas is coming.

But you can’t shop on an empty stomach

Pick-and-Choose Yong Tou Fu.

Winky Mak with her selection.

Baba Mak’s Curry Laksa.

_MG_5971

My Chee Cheong Fun. Fried onion galore.

_MG_5953

Battered sweet potato fries, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. This stuff is addictive. I’d had a similar dish at A Caterpillar’s Dream, a vegetarian restaurant in Kew, Melbourne, Australia. It blew my mind then and it serenaded my taste-buds now.

We ate them with skewers.

_MG_6002

Ice Kachang (shredded ice) with condensed milk and red beans.

_MG_5997

We also had hot soya bean milk and my mum had a bowl of tau foo fa (extra silken tofu with sugar syrup).

After shopping for a couple of hours, we were ready to go home, but it was peak hour traffic, so we decided to wait.

What do the Maks and Chins do when they wait? EAT.

Winky bought us some herbal tea eggs.

Cheap deliciousness. These are also popular in China.

_MG_6089

The marbled effect on the cooked egg comes from cracks in the shell during the cooking process, allowing bits of the seasoned soy sauce mixture to marinate through.

This popiah was a ton better than the Japanese Salad stuff from Day 1. It was 50% fried crispy bits, had soft steamed radish and no weird mayo. Lovely.

_MG_6096

Aunty Maan’s Ice Kachang, this time with creamed corn.

_MG_6101

Foo Chook Pak Gor Tong Sui (dried beancurd dessert soup)

_MG_6104

Uncle Chiu eating Subway.

_MG_6122

Some soup noodles that Winky didn’t really like.

_MG_6144

Eve’s Cendol. She didn’t like the black stuff that looks like worms so she’s palming it off to her mum.

_MG_6126

Durian pancakes.

_MG_6157

More window shopping. Cutest things ever.

_MG_6146

I don’t know if you know this about me, but I. Love. Bread.

_MG_6071

Another coffee break.

_MG_6028

Aunty Mary snacking on nasi lemak from breadtalk. Banana cake in the foreground.

_MG_6038

Then we went grocery shopping. Eve is a monkey.

_MG_6052

My mum smiled!

_MG_6055

I have no idea what she’s pointing at.

_MG_6065

You better not upload this picture.

_MG_6069

On our way home we got some bao. We ordered so much that we almost drove away twice, and the shop guy had to chase us down with the rest of our buns.

_MG_6166

Vegetarian bao.

_MG_6196

Char Sieu Bao (BBQ pork bun).

_MG_6195

Dai bao (big bun).

_MG_6191

Finally home. My stash for the day.

Fake eyelashes (RM6, AUS$1.88), TopShop Ring (RM53, AUS$16.57), MNG Cortita Shorts (RM49, AUS$15.32), Wireless Mouse, & Muji lined notebook (RM25.90, AUS$8.10).

Well that was exhausting.
