Pigs Inside Out @ JB

More shots on a JB day trip! I'm really happy with the pictures that the S100 is taking. It's so user-friendly, it's almost a no-brainer. Me, I'm just really happy with a lightweight camera that captures good pictures, fuss-free. 

See for yourself the pictures and let me know what you think!

Bee Hua was nice enough to pick us up at the JB checkpoint and whisked us off for lunch!

Now, kway chap is a popular southern Malaysia dish. I thought I won't like kway chap due to a past experience of finding it too sticky and starchy - sort of associating it with lor mee, but I must say that I'm much of a convert now! :D

Located some 30 minutes drive from the city centre, this double-shoplots restaurant sells kway chap and from the signboard, has been featured on the popular local food TV series of 8TV Ho Chak.

Kway chap ingredients are displayed for 'preview' and you pick the ones you want in a bowl - like yong tau foo. Here I asked Kenneth to load on the vegs and after he's filled the bowl with chai sim and romaine lettuce, the staff said the vegs are for display only -.-

Everyone was feeling ravenous and thus greed got the better of us. We had to try absolutely every freaking item displayed!!

Can you say lau nua??! Chunky pieces of pig stomach and intestines, braised lor eggs, tofu. liver, etc, etc. This place is so non-halal that every Muslim must stay away at least 50m from this restaurant!

All sorts of fried stuff - Not really keen on this section, though I have my eyes set on the Taiwanese sausage yum yum.

Don't know why we didn't take this - I think it's duck, could be chicken. Maybe cos it's not in line with the kway chap principle of all things pork? Colours look a bit patchy cos I used a poster mode.

A relatively short wait later...

Took the food shots using super vivid mode.

Braised chicken feet - The flavours of the herb was too strong for me and I didn't quite enjoy it. Maybe because I'm so accustomed to the milder northern way?

 Tofu and eggs

This shot is bad..... it looks like the poster mode, but I guess the contrast setting is high with the super vivid. Anyways, one shot out of twenty ain't bad at all.

Pig stomach is very tender, missing my tu tor th'ng very much now!

 I quite like this shot! Though I'm not in it :( Colours are really nice and vibrant.

 The kway teow is thin and slippery, but good! Broth is more diluted than the 'lor' type - something I'm quite thankful for.

Behold the magic five hungry people can conjure -

 Now you see.....

Now you DON'T! Super clean can?! Hehehehe... Initially when the plates are served one by one on the table, we honestly thought that there is absolutely too many things we've ordered, but as it turns out, it was still manageable (cos we have that duo bui Kenneth)

 Washed down the uric-acid filled meal with this very refreshing lemon honey jelly ice. Don't you just love Malaysia ;) Oh- the kway chap meal is quite pricey for local standards. I can't remember exactly how much it was, but it's approximately SGD5 per person, meaning the total bill is at least RM60! Still, worth a second and subsequent visit ;)

The Georgian Adventure - Hike to Chalaadi Glacier

Our third, and last hike in Svaneti. There are so many more places to hike and explore around Georgia, it was a hard decision to premature...
