We came here for supper on Day 9 and we’ve returned! It’s super close to our house.

Creepy sleeping Eve.

Eve’s playtime with toothpicks.

Oh hi there earthworm.

Run away little fella!

Putu Mayam consists of dry, cooked vermicelli rice noodles sprinkled with dried (not cooked) grated coconut and brown sugar. It’s a tasty little snack.

Home-made Fried Tofu sprinkled with dried turnip, coriander, fried garlic and soy sauce.

Aunty Maan originally planned to cook dinner, so her fish was already defrosted. She brought it to the restaurant and asked them to cook it for RM10 (AUD 3.14). It’s normally RM60 (AUD 18.82).

Steamed Tiger Garoupa, with grated ginger, coriander and oily soy sauce.

Cat, are you following me now? …or am I following you?

Stir-fried Long Green Beans and Petai with Minced Garlic. The petai in this dish were too pungent for me, so I ate around them.

_MG_2538

Yes, okay, I like your face too.

Century egg up close. They’re made through preservation in a mixture of clay, ash, salt, quicklime and rice hulks for several weeks to months.

What does it taste like?

Ma: It’s bland.

Aunty Maan: I like it! How to describe?

_MG_2550

Fine. You’re a cute kitty. 

_MG_2602

Goodbye Kitty.

Sunset from our balcony.

The power went out, so we lazed around. Oh my darling internet.

_MG_2654

Goodnight, everyone.
