Gosh, more than half a month and this is the first post for September. I deserve to be shot/whipped/blasted out of the orbit.
I will not even try to explain myself here, for excuses are aplenty, grandfather stories coming in droves and yet I could talk (or sing) till the cow comes home and does not matter one bit.
In fact, I have been on the road (or air) again since 1 Sep until today. Yes, a grand total of 14 days now, and counting. Hong Kong to Singapore, then Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh last weekend, before back to Kuala Lumpur (now) and then to Singapore for the next few days and finally departing (or deported) back to Hong Kong this weekend.
Consecutive meetings are not unheard of, if you have followed this blog since day one when I used to find happiness (don’t give me that face ……) and solace in food finds from the most obscure and unpronounceable location names in Perak.
But this stretch I would imagine would top all the past marathons, even the earlier stretch in Italy-Spain.
On the flip side of things, I discovered (or re-discovered aka ‘frying cold rice’ – go ask your Cantonese-speaking friend to decipher) several share-worthy eats in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and of course, my beloved Ipoh. But then again ….
On the flipper side of things (haha, sue me language police), traveling light means that I don’t have access to my personal laptop (beats me why I made the decision to purchase a megaton gaming machine from Lenovo that can barely fit into a backpack!), and blogging is out of the question.
Hence, the next best alternative is to share them through social media – and this ultra late adopter of Instagram did just that over the past weeks. Yes, finally I have signed up for an Instagram account (thanks to continuous peer pressure), and you can even take a peek of how monstrous the ogre behind the food stories over the past 7 years look like!
Follow me on Instagram for quicker interaction and up-to-date on my whereabouts, or you can just message me for recommendations (please let this be both ways, as I need tips on my food hunt as well).
After this week, this nomad lifestyle in Hong Kong will gradually be coming to an end ….. and I will be moving in to my new place starting October. Let’s hope that Internet connection set up is flawlessly rapid, and I can finally re-establish my passion to write.
*Btw, the tremendously hazy weather in Klang Valley is really killing my creativity (ha-ha). So, no food review today but do remember to stay hydrated (teh tarik, white coffee and all …. these beverages have diuretic effect though), indoor as much as possible, and pray that the Malaysia Day celebration in two days’ time will be a cause for joy, not a sea of REDs.
