Malaysia with iPhone 3G

The third time back to one of my favourite countries in the world, Malaysia, was a full of surprises and delights. Once more, I realized why I love this place so much. My cameras were busy during the two weeks in Malaysia. The food, sights, people, and landscape were just too beautiful. But Malaysia’s hot climate made me travel and sightseeing light; I took most of the photos with my good old iPhone 3G. Yes, I’m still using 3+ years old iPhone 3G. Every meal and every place I went (but mostly food) were captured by my little phone for my memory. Malaysia was certainly mobile photography heaven! I’m sharing some of the finest moments with you. My apologies ahead, for too many food photos. But if you have ever been to Malaysia, you’d understand my agony. It’s just what you have to do in Malaysia.

  1. I love this!! Malaysian food reminds me so much of Indo food I got homesick looking at all of those food pics. Fried bananas, yum!

    1. Well, I’ll be back soon, don’t worry. 🙂 Because I like Malaysia so much, this won’t be my last visit. I’ll make sure to visit east coast some day!

  2. Beautiful! Such a pity we cannot go there.
    We are Israel citizens and I am not sure if we will be welcome there.

    Thank you for sharing this beauty. It is like we’ve been there with you for a moment,

    1. All the food I mentioned, are highly recommended. Cendol is perfect for the dessert too!! 🙂 If you like fish, maybe you’d like Penang laksa.

  3. Everything looked amazingly delicious. Everything that is, except the starfruit juice. I KNOW you love it from what you’ve said before, but the one’s I’ve ever had hear were shockingly undrinkable! And I grew up eating starfruit in Hawaii, so it’s not like I’m not used to the flavor of this fruit. It’s juice the itself. Maybe it the way the Taiwanese prepare it. But, you know, I’m always up for a new thing, so now I will make it a point to try a bag of that in Malaysia just to see if it’s any better than the one’s I’ve had here.
