Foods eaten in Singapore and Malaysia

As is often the case with me, I don’t usually go to luxury restaurants to eat foods abroad because I prefer foods local people usually eat on a daily basis. Here’s a list I’ve eaten in Singapore and Malaysia:

Chicken macaroni soup
Chicken macaroni soup: at a food court of Changi Airport.

Chicken rice plate
Chicken rice plate: at another food court of Changi Airport, where stewardesses of Singapore Airlines were having breakfast.

Today's lunch
Mutton biryani: for lunch at a hawker stall in Tekka Centre, Little India.
This wasn’t put on a banana leaf but just paper, while in another local restaurant Indians were eating foods on a banana leaf by hand.

Today's dinner
Chicken kebab, hummus, and hibiscus juice: for dinner at Arab Quarters.

Lunch at Johor Bahru
Nasi ayam (chicken rice) and sate (grilled chicken) sticks with coconut sauce: for lunch at a cleaner restaurant in Larkin bus terminus in JB. Those two foods and nasi goreng are what I couldn’t help eating in Malaysia.

Pizza Margarita Sea bass and soba

Nasi lemak
Nasi lemak: rice boiled with coconut milk with vegetables and half a boiled egg covered with a leaf. Bought at a restaurant in a Gemas station building. It was very difficult to eat because the rice was fragile. That restaurant was dirty, with small flies flying around the table. I couldn’t eat even half of it.

Meal set at KFC in Gemas
The meal set at KFC: at a KFC in Gemas. It was cleaner, but shop girls of it were blunt and it tasted not very good.

Nasi goreng
Nasi goreng: at last I found it. With this, my travel to Malaysia was complete.
