Around this time last year, we had a sojourn in Queensland. I would call it a Touch'n'Go tour as we spent bits of time everywhere, not just in Gympie but also in Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Gold Coast before returning to Sydney. Ooohhh...I still weep whenever the name of my birth town is mentioned although I'm a full fledged Malaysian now....
Anyway, we had lunch at this wonderful place called Octopus Seafood in Gympie and had a delicious selection of seafood. There was the ubiquitous fish and chips, grilled fish as well as prawns and squids....oh no....the keyboard is wet with drool. Hurry up, Mama, where's the hanky?
|Grilled Barramundi for Dad (and Brad! the table scrap beggar).|
|.....while Mama and I had this scrumptuous calamari. I just found out that Malaysians call this sotong celup tepung (squid in batter)...|
|Don't you think the presentation is just pawesome??? Oh, we had one of each. Not enough to share just one "cone".|
Hmm....why are we talking about Australia now? Are we returning to the land where I was born? purrr...meow!
That food looks super yummy! I can't wait to hear if you're going back to Oz or not.
Maybe a little homesick for cones of chips? Perhaps a voyage is pending?
Now we also have a wet keybord ;-)
That lookes really jummy !!!
It certainly was yummy, Oskar. Haven't found anything equal yet. Going back to Oz? There's a 30-day quarantine that I dread. purrr...meow!
Cones of chippies are achievable. As for voyage...errr...do I have to answer that? purrr...meow!
I know! Quick, wipe your drool. purrr...meow!
yummy...can we have some Angelina??
are u goin back to your country??
but we thot u're coming back for good. and u even got your malaysian catizenship!!!
Was in Darwin last month. Had lots of barramundi. Not bad. [but the Aussies are terrible at making teh tarik]
Mmmmm...ikanG! And that barramundi looks so juicy! To think that I'm not fond of cats...but when I was little, my family called me 'kucing' sebab suka sangat meratah ikan. Yup, until today, ikan is my favourite.
Hey! Who said anything about going back? purrr...meow!
Your Royal Monyetness,
Am shocked that they didn't quarantine you. I think the taste of siakap is similar to the barra. We call it the freshest fish ever because it's always 'baru mandi'. purrr...meow!
Could it because you have to compete with the cats? purrr...meow!
hohh sedapnya! lapaaarrrrrr.....
Hmmm... masa I pi Penang hari tu pun my friends belanja makan seafood by the beach and ada sekoq kucing datang mengendeng dengan suara seksinya...
ooh... I love grilled Barramundi , I miss Australia :D yum.. yum..
Oh, Puddy Tat, you've given me a craving for fish-and-chips now!
Oh yum that looks good! I love calamari; nice to learn the Malay for it. My Malay friends call it calamari, which is rather odd when you think about it.....
Kalau di Batu Ferringhi memang banyak kucing, tapi tu semua Uncle Misai kasi makan. purrr...meow!
We have a fish with similar taste called siakap or sea bass. Tastes good too. purrr...meow!
I thought that's the staple food in your English Cottage? purrr...meow!
Au, Target & Guido,
Hey! I can teach you boys some Malay...with an Aussie twang! I only charge an arm and a leg. Go to the East Coast states - Trengganu especially for scrumptious sotong celup tepung or ikan celup tepung. They come with home made chili sauce, and young coconut juice....yummmm.... purrr...meow!
Food is a great way of reliving fond memories of a holiday. Which explains why I have a fondness for TipTop and Bulla ice cream!
Have you tried Weisz fruit ice bar? It's also from Qld and soooo yummy! purrr...meow!
Hmmmmm.It looks like the Queen is longing for Queensland! Heehee.
the critters in The Cottage xo
The Queen loves her old life. She only had one slave to look after. Now she has five flea farms to take care of. purrr...meow!
Oh my goodness that food looks so yummy - drooool!
Oh dearie me...another keyboard to wipe. purrr...meow!
we love to go dine with you.
Emma and Buster
