Away in the USA

No more Ramadan posts for the year, as I am currently away this week - in the Midwest USA. Had a long grueling flight here....imagine sitting down for almost 24 hours and 4 planes! It is good to be back in the USA, I just realised when I did my visa application, it has been 8 long years since I last visited in Dallas, Texas.

Since it is mainly a work trip, that gets priority first. However we get the evenings off, so there is some flexibility to search for food. I plan to start blogging on old entries this week, as I still have Internet connection all the way. Uploaded the pictures before I left, hopefully no technical difficulties.

Boo,

Welcome to the US, I have been a big fan of your blog for years, I must say I noticed some thing different this year, because your Ramadan coverage this year is much less, so being here explain every thing. if you ever make to washington dc area, I want to tell you that you will not starve, we do have 3 malaysian restaurant, Penang in Bethesda (that is my favorite because of it's easy atmosphere), Penang in washington dc M street (not related to the first), not bad either but cater more to party goers, and Malaysia Kopitam next to the second but I never tried, needless to say that all three are not like the original (home) but they are very decent. there is a couple more Malaysian chefs in washington DC operating in Asian restaurant not exactly Malaysian by name I ate in one before and I can tell the influence. in the mean time, you can use the help of a local near by Asian grocery store, and a recipe from rasamalaysia.com and just imagine you are back home, best of luck, be safe.
