Mee Bandung Muar from Mak Tim

The Muar Mee Bandung at Warong Mak Tim was so authentic, it brought back memories of eating it at famous Abu Bakar Hanipah's in 70 year old Wah Sun kopitiam in Muar town.

The jolly mamak proprietor was such an intense PR guy he overwhelmed me and my Muar guide, the then local court interpreter Christine Yeow Cher Yuin. Believe me, as a court interpreter, cynical Christine has heard many tall tales and exaggerated claims. LOL.

Hua Mui's Hainanese Chicken Chop In JB

That Thing They Do.

That famous Malaysian invention: Hainanese chicken chop from Hua Mui. Yumz.

Photography Tip: You can control lens flare without a lens hood or mattebox.

Use one hand to shade the light. In this case, I like the flare from the morning sun as it gives it the ambiance.

To control or shade it a little, I can also use my friend Sharon's iPad Mini as a 'french flag' or light cutter.

Hua Mui Restaurant is at 131 Jalan Trus, Johor Bahru and is certified Halal.

Love Is Blue - Nasi Kerabu at Nasi Kukus Kak Teh

One will never find it without modern day navigation aids such as Waze or Google Maps.

I ordered Nasi Kerabu or Kelantanese blue rice and a piece of fragrant spice marinated fried chicken thigh.

Had to be very alert and quick to stop the butcher wannabe at the kitchen from chopping and splintering the bones into a thousand pieces.

Nasi Lemak At Hotel Farm Ville

One more from Farm Ville Homestay in Sekinchan the other day. Nasi Lemak from Farm Ville's cosy cafe in a metal shipping container. Everything including rooms and toilets are in a metal container. Was cooling during the rainy weather. Not sure if the air conditioners can keep up during hot days.

Rice is presumably from the touristy Sekinchan Rice Factory nearby.

Nasi Paprik Daging

I think it is rather uncouth to be spitting out prawn tails, prawn legs and shells. Plus I hate getting my hands oily as I need to handle camera equipment and the phone. That could be just me.

Mee Udang Banjir

Mee Udang Banjir

We stopped randomly at Mee Udang Banjir near Kuala Selangor. It is a kind of Malay shrimp gumbo with shells and feet of the prawns included with yellow noodles.
The prawns aren't exactly galah as advertised, which is giant freshwater prawns but the dish is photogenic and tasty nevertheless . RM 10.50 for the dish with regular size prawns.
