What I Ate for Brunch in 2016

Brunching in Malaysia is absolutely phat-bulous, so much variety that the multi-ethnic country has offered to the people is amazing; think of the eclectic mix of culinary delights (Malay, Chinese and Indian) and you are bound to meet Malaysians that can be awkwardly indecisive when it comes to brunching/dining out. Malaysians exhibiting this behaviour is very much acceptable.

Here is the thing, I might warn you that taking pictures of everything I eat is not my modus operandi but somehow over the 4 months back home in Kuala Lumpur and Penang, I do actually have some photos of eerr mostly, my brunch. Brunch it seems was the best time to socialize with my family and friends you know, with the right amount of indulgence. So here is my collection of what I’ve been brunching in Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia (mainly Kuala Lumpur and Penang) for the year 2016. These photos were taken in hawker stalls, markets, cafes and restaurants.
