What We Ate in Vietnam

by Sarah Grey @ Ideas of Living

To wrap up my coverage of our four weeks in Vietnam, I, of course, had to talk about the food! Vietnamese food was hands down my favorite cuisine of our entire trip.  Street food is affordable and delicious. Street stalls tend to have limited menus, specializing in just a few dishes, which means that everything […]

Part 4 – The City Of Contrasts

by TravelGal @ Cambodia & Vietnam (2015) – TravelGal's Notes

The title line, shamelessly borrowed from an old Soviet movie, probably best explains today’s Saigon.  Each one of the 19 districts comprising the city is different, and often even moving around the corner in the same area you find yourself on a totally different planet. The best example of such dichotomy can be seen between the former China town area of Cholon in District 5, and the downtown old Saigon in District 1.  Despite the name, the old part of town boasts modern steel and glass sky-scrapers, Versace boutiques, and fancy colonial-era hotels, renovated to the brand-spanking-new condition.  Cholon means ...

With a population of around 8 million people and divided into 19 districts, Saigon is a huge spread-out city, too big to explore in its entirety. Like with every big metropolis, though, you really don’t want to explore all of it.  Most attractions worth seeing are located in Districts 1, 3 and 5, and as we ...

Shade Market Cooking: Condiments Part 1

Shade Market Cooking: Condiments Part 1

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

When I sit down at a restaurant, whether it's fine dining or a diner, I want a bottle of hot sauce close to me.  In Thailand, they feel my struggle.  Places that serve great food and those that serve up mediocrity will almost always have condiments set at each table. It is actually a sign of a quality restaurant if their table side seasonings look fresh and abundant.  Our favorite spot for Khao Ka Muu, braised pork shank over rice, is a great example. The traditional garnishes of raw whole chiles, raw whole garlic cloves and scallions are usually crisp and unblemished.  The same can't be said for their competition.

Part 2 – Welcome to Saigon

by TravelGal @ Cambodia & Vietnam (2015) – TravelGal's Notes

In addition to hard beds and narrow buildings, several other things stand out in Saigon to an observant eye.  The main one is definitely the mad traffic.  The number of scooters, mopeds and small motorbikes on the roads, carrying families, luggage, boxes, gas canisters, cartons and bags full of goods exceeds anything even Bangkok can boast of.  Together with cars, taxis and buses they move in a seemingly random, yet well choreographed chaos, rarely observing road signs or street lights.  Saigon traffic rules were well summarised on a T-shirt we saw in one of the souvenir shops: “Green – you ...

Part 1 – Good Morning, Vietnam!

by TravelGal @ Cambodia & Vietnam (2015) – TravelGal's Notes

Somehow, this beat-up phrase seemed to be the best fitting beginning to describe the start of our Vietnam trip.  Mostly because we did arrive in Ho Chi Mingh City (also known as Saigon, and often abbreviated to HCMC) in the morning. The 9-hour flight from Munich with Thai Airways first brought us to Bangkok for a layover on our way to Saigon.   After all the rave reviews I heard from people about the airline, I was looking forward to experience the excellent service everybody was referring to, but ended up being rather disappointed.  Maybe my expectations were too high, or ...

When someone in Vietnam tells you that you are a good person, they don’t say—as they might in the West—that you have a good soul. Instead, they say that you have a good stomach. This idiom is a small testament to the deep and abiding love of food in Vietnam. Vietnamese cuisine has its basis …

Travel Fatigue After 11 Months on the Road

by noreply@blogger.com (Outlander Abroad) @ Outlander Abroad

I wrote this out while hiding in a much-needed private room in Chengdu, China, when the little frustrations of daily travel life were beginning to take their toll on my mental sanity.  This was just prior to some very necessary days with some familiar faces from the States and three blissfully relaxing weeks in Bali with my Portuguese pirate.  It bears sharing in its honesty.  Burnout happens, and at that point I had to just put my head down and charged forward, until I reached the "break" I had put out there for myself.  In another situation, perhaps I would have just stopped and gone straight to visit friends, or return to a more familiar, comfortable destination and camp out there for a while.

**********

Mere days after I hit the eleven-month anniversary of my travels, as I found myself collapsing onto my fourth bed in a week's time, I felt absolutely exhausted, grouchy, and overwhelmed at the thought of making the regular series of decisions that I have to tackle on a regular basis:  Where will my next stop be?  How will I get there? How much longer will I be in this city? What should I do tomorrow? Where should I find food?  

While this journey has been an absolute dream of mine, and while I'm truly enjoying every step of the way, it bears acknowledgement that feelings of burnout were likely to occur at some point along the way, given the duration of my travels.  I had already experienced something akin to homesickness, a longing for a space of my own, familiarity, a routine - without wanting to give up traveling or return home.  But after a few days of rest and relaxation in Northern Thailand, I forged ahead, racing through Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia, with a very brief stop back in Bangkok as I made my way towards Hong Kong and perhaps my most intimidating destination of my entire trip:  mainland China.  I had been so good about forcing myself to stop and stay in one place early on in my travels - spending a full three weeks in my own apartment in Buenos Aires, followed by nearly five weeks based out of Aveiro, Portugal, very shortly thereafter.  Since then, I have hardly stayed in one place for a week.  In fact, I can probably count on one hand the number of times I actually succeeded in doing so, most being prior to my run through the aforementioned countries.  

At this point I do have some rest and relaxation ahead, but it's still a little under three weeks away, when I have a full three plus weeks of beach time in Indonesia.  That doesn't sound too far off, but that is also the entirety of the duration I have remaining here in China.  While it would be tempting to just stay in one place a few extra days and get in some necessary recovery time, I don't want to miss the opportunity to see some of the incredible sites that I came all the way to China to see and experience.  Which is truly the conundrum of any traveler, especially the long term one - how to balance seeing and doing and experiencing with sanity-saving days off?


I'm going to try and push through for the next few weeks - I'm still resolved to see the terra-cotta warriors in Xi'an, spend time with my friend Amy in Shanghai, and visit the Great Wall and the Forbidden City in Beijing.  But perhaps I don't have to overextend myself and do too much else.  I have to try not to overly pack my days full, or I risk collapsing into a terrible mood that's some horrific hybrid of hanger and exhaustion.  

**********

Looking back, I did overextend myself, nearly reaching a breaking point a couple of stops later in Zhangye.  But that's also where I found some sort of stubborn resolve and fought back.  I began my mental recovery when I set foot in Shanghai, a more comfortable city for a Westerner, and a place where I would stay with a friend from home.  I found another familiar face in Beijing, and that was enough to carry me through, to end my stay in China on a positive note, before my mid-trip vacation in Indonesia.  But, more on those things to come...

For reasons I cannot really explain, Malaysia has never been on my travel radar.  Don’t really know why, there is no rhyme or reason, but I was ready to shout “It should have been!!!” at the top of my lungs right after clearing immigration in Kuala Lumpur’s super-modern and super-efficient International Airport.  Clearing immigration with a Russian passport is never a fun thing – you need invitations, visas, proofs of return flights, proofs of accommodation booked, and all other petty and snub nuisances that make one want to wish for a more travel-friendly passport.  Well, you guess what?…  Not in ...

Fly Problems?

Then there is this fly infested market in Laos. Food lying on the street, no fanfare, no advertisement, just fruits, vegetables and fresh fish. Just healthy food, the type of food that holds the key to vast reductions in death from disease for Americans. And, I have to think, it's not pretty, but at least it's honest.

Tasting Culture: Chiang Mai Fresh Markets

As a westerner, there is no denying it, some of the markets are dirty and far from aesthetically pleasing.  It can be hard to ignore the pools of filthy water, the flies and the acrid smells that leap into your nostrils unexpectedly.  But make no mistake, these markets supply the most chic restaurants down to the humble street vendors. They are also home to some of the best, most authentic Thai food in Chiang Mai. The cooks here aren't slinging hash to tourists, they cook for the people working hard beside them, people who know good Thai food

To Kill a Clucking Bird

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

"Jay-zon", a few seconds of silence, "Jay-zon" again, a raspy yet kind voice called out.  The moon was high, and I was lightly dreaming when I heard my accented name. Groggily, I got up to see what Rocky Bittika wanted.  Rocky is a stocky, strong Karen man and one of the full-time residents at PunPun.  Imagine him as the Burmese "Wolverine", a gruff, good-hearted outdoorsman. Over the past few days, we had bonded over gardening, badminton, smoking cigarettes, and table tennis.  That night, Rocky had something on his mind.  In two days, he would be leaving the farm.  He was en route to the Burmese border to celebrate the ceasefire between a faction of Karen rebels and the Burmese military.  He wanted a grand send off.  "Maybe I will get a fish, or a chicken...or something like that.  We can kill it, and you can cook it,” Rocky said to me, as we puffed some of his aromatic tobacco and papaya leaf blend in the moonlight.  I was honored that he chose me as the chef.  Killing the animal is an important link in the food chain, and being a city boy, I'd never experienced it.  I was excited. Anxiety welled up in my chest.  Fresh blood would flow.  By firelight we would sacrifice a chicken, in honor of Rocky, and feast on its flesh.  I was also tired, and when our meeting was over I stumbled to bed, my head met the pillow, and forgot about our tete a tete.

Vendors make it very apparent as to what dishes they serve.

Mindful Eating = Mindful Living

Mindful Eating = Mindful Living

by shade market @ Journal - shade market

During the 4 week duration, the cleanse took me on a journey inward. Being forced to think before eating or drinking suddenly sparked a lot of thought. While having lunch, I was aware of how the food differed from what I might normally eat: how it tasted, how it smelled, what emotions it triggered. While digesting I could feel my body working, absorbing nutrients. When something didn't agree with me, I could feel my body’s disdain.

Our next stop was Gili Trawangan, aka “the party island” of the 3 tiny spots off the coast of Lombok that at closer inspection of the map turn out to be actual land masses.  Gili Trawangan is specifically ...

This is a Northern Food

This is a Northern Food

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

It's early morning in Chiang Mai, and Ton Payom market is starting to get going at full speed.  A tapping rhythm can faintly be heard from the western entrance.  As we drift towards the southwest corner of the open air market, the tapping becomes a pounding. We finally got to the market early enough to watch a young man help prepare our favorite laap.  The dish laap is a salad of minced meat, in the same sense that steak tartare is a salad.  But it is more than that.  Laap is a dish of celebration.  It's a verb, a communal activity.  Laap is a rhythm passed down for centuries, pounded out with blades, flesh and blood.  Or, as Mr. Yoot, one of the proprietors of Ton Payom's laap stand, put it, "This is a northern food."  The modest presentation of laap belies its rich flavor and history.

Shade Market Cooking: Fresh Tofu

Shade Market Cooking: Fresh Tofu

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

For years I completely ignored tofu.  It just never excited me.  In my eyes, it was white-ish, bland soy mush.  How ignorant of me!  But, in all fairness, we are not taught to appreciate tofu in the States.  As we mention in our post on soy milk, the mass produced "tofu" that's common in the United States is not real tofu.  It's just soy protein concentrate pressed into a cake.  Real tofu is a whole soy product, including most of the fiber and healthy fats in the soy bean.  Real tofu isn't bland.  It has a slightly sour flavor from the vinegar used to curdle the soy milk.  Real tofu has a vegetal taste from the skin of the legume.  It has a toothsome quality akin to queso fresco or haloumi.  Tofu's porous nature allows it to soak up sauces and flavorful oils. I will continue to ignore the mass produced soy-food that is found in supermarkets, instead opting for fresh tofu at asian markets.  Or, better yet, home-made tofu.

One of the first friends we made in Chiang Mai is a kid named Gangi.  He's 19 years old, built like a professional football player and an avid biker, with a recently opened bicycle repair shop.  Ganji is the son of a Burmese father and an English mother but has called Chiang Mai home his entire life.  Of course the first thing we asked him was where we should eat.  He did us one better and took us out to dinner.  We were expecting Thai food.  Instead he brought us to Burmese Restaurant and Library.  Paige and I sat down while the young man shuffled about looking in pots, pointing at things and chatting with the cooks.  Soon he sat down and in minutes an unprecedented feast arrived at our table.  So started our love affair with Burmese food.

Strictly speaking, dragons do not live in Labuanbajo, but it is the closest starting point to the areas favored by the famous reptiles.  As many tourists coming to the area, we mistakenly thought that Komodo dragons live only ...

Turned out, Saigon was not so easy to say good bye to. As luck would have it, our last memories of it were going to be not the drinks with a view, but a completely unexpected oompah band that started playing outside of our hotel at 5:30 the next morning.

BonBon Residence

by admin @ Eating Saigon!

BonBon Residence 2C8 Trường Sa Street P. 19, Bình Thạnh District **************************************** Let’s get this out of the way right up front.  I hate the name BonBon Residence.  Sounds like an assisted-living home for expired frozen treats.

Coffee Culture in Vienna

Farmer's Markets, Chiang Mai

Farmer's Markets, Chiang Mai

by shade market @ Journal - shade market

With the abundant street markets downtown and farms lining the hills, we naively assumed that the meat and produce in Chiang Mai came from independent farmers. But, large agribusinesses, such as CP, maintain monopolies on agricultural production; much like Monsanto. This type of farming requires large amounts of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. The produce itself is then brought to market by middle men, who purchase from farms and transport it to villages and cities for sale. Farmers are left with no say on how their crops are distributed or how much they should be sold for. It’s harder than we thought to find organic produce and food that comes directly from the source.  The bustling markets of Chiang Mai lost some of their magic when we realized that we had been misinformed. But, the best tasting food is found at the street markets and in grungy kitchens. So, how can we eat traditional Thai food while considering sustainability?

SMlifestyle + Food as Medicine: Skin Protection

Growing up the fairest person in LA, I despised my skin. I found the process of protecting it exhausting and embarrassing. Everyone was comparing tans, while I thought about sun poisoning; I knew from experience how it would feel if I was out too long - one major reason why I love the shade.

A Little Hospitality… A Guest is a Gift from God

A Little Hospitality… A Guest is a Gift from God

by Shannon @ A Little Adrift: Wanderings & Traveling the World

A throaty tenor danced across the inky night, joined moments later by a chorus of lighter voices. The empty footpath widened as I approached the Kartlis Deda statue. The disembodied voices echoed across the cool night. Lit in soft green, Mother Georgia towered above me. The nearby voices lifted in perfect harmony, swelling as the ethereal melody penetrated […]
