Our trips to Kuala Lumpur had us visiting many places, savoring the city’s food and staying at Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral. Recommended by friends Alison and Narelle, the hotel with a casual, hip vibe offers solid bed to help us sleep through the nights.

The hotel is a convenient place of accommodation, especially for those who do not have transport as it is located opposite the KL Sentral transportation hub.

Diners visiting Sesame & Soy at G-Hotel, Penang will find solace in the unique dishes crafted by chef de cuisine Chiam Choon Heng. This award winning Pan Asian restaurant offers a variety of fusion contemporary Chinese cuisine.

Besides the ala carte menu, Sesame also features quarterly seasonal menus. From August to September 2013, the menu listed with nutritious lotus root and fresh fruit creations awaits you.

Try the Stuffed Lotus Root with Prawn. This dish with peanut butter mayo and sesame seeds atop huge prawns stuffed with moderately minced lotus root and prawns is prepared in an interesting and flavorful way. The lotus root is rather unique, with fine threads when you bite into it.

Having afternoon tea at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa in Batu Ferringhi, Penang is a real indulgence. I remembered my first noteworthy exposure with Rasa Sayang’s afternoon tea at the Rasa Wing Lounge.

It came with a 3-tier plate rack, with cakes, scones accompanied with cream and jam along with savory treats. Until today, the tradition of afternoon tea is still observed in both the Rasa Wing Lounge and the Spice Market Cafe over at the Garden Wing.
