Going back to where I came from

A long time ago I lived in the UK. it was my country, it was my home. 

Come back to visit made me so happy but also a little sad. Everything looked so familiar but different. 

I've always loved London, we used to go there as kids to museums, galleries and just to explore a little. This was my plan when I decided to visit the UK during this trip. 

But I also wanted to visit all the people I knew when I was living in England. So I hit the ground running, as I got off the Eurostar from Paris I got to meet an old friend from way, way back before checking into my hotel.

The next few days I got to spend at some great museums such as the Victoria and Albert, The British Museum and National Gallery which were all fantastic. But by the end of my stay in London I came down with a slight case of tourism fatigue. Not because I wasn't loving my holiday or I didn't appreciate the opportunity to travel but life on the road was wearing me down that tiny little bit and my brain was bursting at the seams with memories, stories and images of the fantastic place that they call Europe. Packing it all in seems like a great idea in the planning stage but sometimes the energy levels don't always keep up on execution of that plan. 

But luckily, the last few days of my trip were dedicated to seeing people and I just got to chill. People that I lived with when I was 21 to people who have known me for longer that I can remember and people that I meet in other far flung places such as India and Malaysia.

This month's holiday has been amazing. I've eaten too much and sometimes drunk a little more than I would in everyday life but the it has been just incredible. The art galleries, museums and architecture has been just mind-blowing and has left a massive imprint on my brain and just made me just so unbelievably happy.  The nature and the views in Switzerland were also just so beautiful and so was the opportunity to hang with mum and dad plus their extended family. All of this just made me happy to be alive.

Nasi Lamak on the Korner

Trawling through Zomato this afternoon I was excited to find a nice sounding Malaysian place that is named after a traditional Malaysian dish Nasi Lamak and which happens to be one of my favourites.

After spending three months in Malaysia, I have memories of eating Nasi Lama from Banana leaves for breakfast that we got from a local stall but really I could eat Nasi Lamak all day.

But since Malaysia is a little far away to pop out for a Nasi Lamak, a short drive to the Korner will have to do.

I fell in love with it straight away. It has an inner city “converted warehouse” feel to it while being cosy. It has a nice mural on the wall that brings iconic landmarks from Perth and Malaysia together.  

Tonight, it fairly full but not packed. The staff were friendly and on point. The food came out relatively quickly and unlike some suburban places presentation was good, although you can’t really go wrong with Nasi Lamak, can you?

Midweek noodles

Wednesday is often just as hard as Monday; it is the middle of the working week but there are two more days til the weekend.

Just to make things slightly easier, I popped into Paparich for a bowl of noodles just to lift my spirits. I love Malaysian food; it takes me back to many months I’ve spent there so it made sense to visit a place that does Malaysian food to keep me motivated.

But it was so hard to decide what to choose as it all looked so good but the Chilli Pan Mee that I ended up going for was just perfect. It was a good size and the chilli hit was just want I needed to clear a lingering cold. The Soy Milk Jelly was a good end to the meal.

The staff were ok, a little slow off the mark but ok. Although it is not the only Malaysian restaurant in Perth, it is so nice to have another bit of Malaysia in WA.

Meatball in Mt Lawley has the ball in their court

When my friend wanted to visited this restaurant in this place for heir birthday do, I thought it go either way. Either the food would be really dodgy or amazing but luckly it was fantastic.

So, lets get the ball rolling!

While we enjoyed a glass of wine we decided which meat balls to ordered.

We decided on the Red Thai Beef Balls, Harissa Lamb Balls and the Ball bags with the Spicy Pork. I’m telling you, it was Devine and totally amazing. The flavours were perfectly balanced and just amazing.

Originally we thought is wasn’t going to be enough but in the end it was plenty for three people. We loved the bread and the fries as the perfect addition to the meatballs.

We loved our meal here and we had a ball. While it was a little noisy, we still had a good night celebrating our friend’s birthday.

Our desserts were decdant and ossed with calories but it doesn't matter when it tastes good.

The staff were friendly and efficient. We’ll be back.
