Ba was all, “Hey! Over here!”

Scared the poor fellas away.

Apocalyptic grassy plain where tourists and kids shell out money to ride on segways.

Extravagance.

His movements less, but his emotions great.

Dance lion, dance.

Finally trying the infamous Babi Guling (Suckling Pig).

Outside the restaurant was the fluffiest dog ever.

Chicken Satay Sticks.

We each had a bowl of rice…

_MG_1925

To go with some crazily spicy vegetables.

Chopped and fried green beans, chilli, onion flakes and shredded jackfruit, the last of which the uncanny texture of flakes of fish (vegetarians, try shredded jackfruit the next time you want to invent a tuna sandwich!).

Since my mum lied and said the chilli sambal wasn’t spicy, I took a big spoonful then downed half a litre of liquids, crying.

A meat platter of Satay Sticks and Babi Guling (suckling pig), which according to my mum, tasted rather plain, but with a bit of salt. She also said the skin wasn’t crispy enough. Guess we didn’t go to the right place.

As a vegosaurus, I had 2 fried eggs instead.

We spent 5 hours waiting at the airport for our flight back to Malaysia.

Dinner time.

The serving sizes in Asia are much smaller than Australia. Which is good, cause I probably shouldn’t be eating too many wedges anyway…

_MG_1994

…so I can nom on my delicious soy-drenched tofu and beansprouts!

_MG_2006

Winky had Wat Ton Hor, flat noodles with seafood, meat, mixed veggies in a thick egg sauce.

_MG_1998

Ma had Sweet and Sour Pork.

_MG_2005

Ba had Nasi Lemak.

_MG_2002

Overall, a pretty uneventful New Year’s Eve.

We were in the car on our way home from the airport when at 12:03am, we noticed fireworks in the sky.

My family is chiller.

Happy 2013 everybody.
