Unkaizan Langkawi, this ten year-old establishment is amazing as each dish is authentic and crafted by a Japanese master chef with over a decade of international culinary experience.

Langkawi Restaurant Review | Chiew Seafood at Pantai Tengah

Langkawi Restaurant Review 

Floating on the Straits of Malacca about 110 km north of Penang, Langkawi is never an island to land on for food, be it in a Langkawi restaurant, cafe or by road side though most of us love its idyllic beaches and laid back adventures. That said, where to eat is still a puzzle. Hunting for the best restaurant in Langkawi is not easy since most reviews I run through over majority of the restaurants on the island are fed with more complaints than compliments.

On the first day when we stepped on the land of Eagle or Lang, we decided to pick one of the nearest eating place from our hotel. We wanted to have just a quick one and be back to prepare for the following full day itinerary – that’s the excuse we gave ourselves. From Langkawi restaurant blog review, I suggested Cactus Cafe that sits exactly opposite our resort. Alas, it was closed for two weeks. So, we drove out heading north to Pantai Cenang. .

TexMex and Western food in Penang | Chilis Grill and Bar Restaurant

Western Food in Penang

Being colonized by a few European countries before, western food in Penang is not a foreign nor a luxury. The recent price war among the fast chain restaurants put these so-called ‘western food’ to be very affordable, in fact it is battling against the street western food and stuff in hawker centers as well.

If you’re looking for a ‘localized’ western food below RM10, you may not go far wrong with Mount Erskine western delight, Fettes Park western food Penang or street vendors at hawker centers or food courts. The term ‘localized’ is to stress the fact that these western platters have been tuned to the local’s palate, offered in unique names that are not common in the authentic Western food menu and served with frozen vegetables and fries. Nonetheless, these are the ‘real’ western food in Penang today.

What to see in Austin Texas | Lake Travis View at Sunset

What to see in Austin Texas 

We wanted a picture perfect evening of Lake Travis view, this is exactly we wish for what to see in Austin! Basked in all the glory of mother nature has to offer, right in the neighborhood of the Austin suburbs, we thought that The Oasis might be the place to be.

Approaching The Oasis

As our car turned around the corner, The Oasis of Austin Texas loomed into view. It’s a massive structure, built on the cliff side, hanging precariously – looking on to Lake Travis like a giant ship about to topple over into the lake.

The walk from the car park to The Oasis takes you through a small range of shops, flower-beds and an assortment of sculptures which can only be described as strange and weird or extraordinary – like for example the remains of what seems to be a small spaceship.
