Away for Holiday :)

I'll be away from tomorrow onwards to Sihanoukville Beach for holiday! See you guys soon!

Take care Pals!

KFC Luncheon @ Phnom Penh

Yesterday was a Public Holiday for Cambodia. I met up with Anna for brunch and some shopping at Sorya. She was working in the afternoon shift and we managed to meet up for few hours before she went to work.

We went to KFC for lunch on that day. This is the only KFC opened in Phnom Penh. The Original Recipe and Hot & Spicy are quite similar to those in Malaysia. The Colonel's Meal which can only be found in Cambodia is served with White Rice, which is a bit weird for me. This set comes with 2 pieces of Chicken, 1 mashed potato, a Coke and White Rice.

The Snack Plate and Dinner Plate are also more expensive compare to Malaysia which is at USD3.10 for snack plate and USD3.80 for Dinner Plate. The conversion rate now is at USD1 to RM3.50.

Original Recipe

During our tea time, we went for some local dessert. The taste of the dessert is a bit like Bubur Cha Cha and Iced Chendol. Nicer and more colourful than that!

This one tastes like Bubur Cha Cha. Served with Egg Yolk, Potato, some Jelly.

Served with some colour ball (Something like those in Pearl Milk Tea). Tastes like Iced Chendol

Vietnamese Pha Noodle

After came back from my Ho Chi Minh trip, I was craving for the Pha Noodle. And i just found out from my colleague that there's a Vietnamese Pha Noodle shop nearby our hotel, around 5 minutes drive. Vietnamese food is easy to find in anywhere in Phnom Penh :)

We decided to go to Pha Noodle shop for lunch. The soup was so tasty and love the taste with mint leave and vegetables.

Remember to try this Pha Noodle! Low Calories, Low Fat and Tasty :)

"No Name" Seafood Restaurant

Friends and family always ask me where I go for dinner, and the answer to them was always NO NAME RESTAURANT. Yes, there's a seafood restaurant called NO NAME RESTAURANT located nearby my apartment. It is owned by Malaysian and the chef is a Singaporean. A lot of Malaysian food can be found there like Hokien Mee, Fish Head Noodle etc. The food is not so pricey at only average of USD15 for 2 persons.

I will definitely be a regular guests at NO NAME RESTAURANT!!!

Second Night Outing with Anna

I managed to spend both nights with Anna when she arrived at Phnom Penh. After that, Couldn't really have much chance to meet up with her as she's working on shift while my working hours is 9 to 5. She'll be in the midnight shift for the next few more days.

However, we had so much fun together at Phnom Penh. During the 2nd night, i prepared for some homecooked dinner for Anna at my apartment. After dinner, we brought her to nearby weekend Flea Market, things there were really cheap. A Cambodian Silk Scarf only cost at USD2 per piece. T-shirt at only USD3 at each.

@ Weekend Flea Market

After that, i treated her for SUPPER, The deep fried insects. At first, Anna felt quite reluctant to eat it. We kept on convincing her to try else we wouldnt send her back to her hostel LOL. How cruel are we! hehe.....

After having the first bite of Deep Fried Spider (It is called AH BING in Cambodia), Anna loved the taste so much that she wanted to feed me on the leg. I was so scared that i ran away from her. :) She told us that it tasted like Chicken Skin.

So Brave of Anna and She's our HERO!!!!!!

Quite reluctant to taste that!


First Bite


I was so scared when Anna wanted to feed me. After all, I didnt eat it.

Anna's First Night Dinner @ Phnom Penh

My home town friend, Anna had accepted the job offer at my workplace and came to Phnom Penh last Saturday. We studied at the same secondary school and used to work at the same hotel in Miri. It was just like a dream! I'd never think of any of my friend would come to Phnom Penh. Nothing can be more joyful than this :)

On the first day upon Anna's arrival, I brought her to one of the biggest shopping mall in Phnom Penh to shop for some groceries items, basic stuffs like Sim Card etc.

After that, We went for dinner at the Cambodian Food Restaurant. Overall, food was great at that night especially the Tom Yam Seafood and Pork Amok (Cambodian Curry). Everyone of us had consumed 2 plates of rice on that day. It's also great to hear from Anna that Phnom Penh is much better than what she thought of.

After that, we actually planned to bring Anna for some Supper, "Deep Fried Spider". Unfortunately, all the stalls were already closed.

I'll be having more chance to see Anna in future and cherish every moment spending together.

Dare to eat?????

This picture was taken during my sis, mum and auntie's visitation to where I'm currently living in, Phnom Penh City.

I brought them around the city and tried the Khmer cuisine especially those insects along Riverside.

There it goes! I'd strongly recommend Dasolve to explore this area for more food hunt. Hehe.....

Dunno what's this called in Cambodia, it's called "BALUT" in Phillipines. Means Ducklings eggs.... USD0.50 for each

We were not dare to try it so just bought one for the tuk tuk driver to show us how it looks like.

Can see ducklings inside....

Yummy :)
