Eating Halfway Through KL

We’re back in KL, Peninsular Malaysia on a weeklong holiday during the Hari Raya school break. While we love Sarawak and all the unique foods it has to offer (like durian flowers), there are some dishes you just can’t get in Kuching, like Mum’s popiah.

Getting there was quite a journey, but that doesn’t compare to the experiences we had in and around this town on the central coast of Sarawak. Here are some of the things I captured on my camera from around Sarikei.
