Borneo! After four and a half months of roughing it in New Zealand and Australia we're finally back in Asia where we no longer have to camp or cook for ourselves (unless we really want to). The novelty of quick, tasty and cheap food has returned and we're taking every opportunity we can to try something new. Our first stop after checking into our hotel in Kota Kinabalu was a small local restaurant where we had delicious seafood laksa (soup) for lunch. In the evening we headed down to the night market to sample the various street food (fried noodles, satay, fried bananas, mmmm). In Central Asia and China we had great fun taking photos of the different food that we ate along the way. Somehow, cooking for ourselves on a budget in NZ and Oz just wasn't really photo-inspiring. By the end of our time in Oz we were boycotting fresh fruit and veg due to the insane costs at the supermarket. In Oz, one banana cost upwards of $3-4. Now we can eat an amazing dinner for the cost of two aussie bananas! And the fresh fruit...heaven! Anyways we had lots of fun in KK taking photos of our food. I'm sure the novelty will wear off after a while and we'll be craving some of that home-made pasta and tuna...right?

Did you peel it yourself? No. Did you see them do it? No. But it tastes so good!
