Review of Checkers, Damansara Heights - A Trip Down Memory Lane

I was back in KL last week after a long absence, and to catch up with my friend, KL's premier straight-talking food blogger Brian Mack.  It was hard to believe that I hadn't seen Brian since December last year.  Ever the inveterate traveller, he had done something like three separate European trips since our last encounter (I lost count), and both of us were looking for some old-fashioned comfort food.  His choice?  Checkers Restaurant at Damansara Heights.

Welcome Back, and An Apology

Hello Readers

First of all, my sincerest thanks for continuing to follow this blog.  I know I have been rather on-off in my recent efforts and I wanted to apologise to those of you who have allowed me, whether or not on a regular basis, a few minutes of your precious time over the last five years.

A Voyage to Portugal (Part 4): The Douro Boys and Casa Anadia

I stood at the banks of the Douro River as the mists lifted in the nascent sunlight.  A circuitous 3 km route through the sparse riverine forest brought me right to waters' edge, where the once-wild river (it is now dammed in 15 places, five in Spain and ten in Portugal) lapped gently against the muddy shore, nuzzling the soles of my shoe like an affectionate puppy.
