VIDEO! Hosting Ms Catherine Bell from Dish Magazine, NZ in KL, Malaysia

We had a blast “makan – makan” over 2 days with Ms Catherine Bell, Food Director from Dish magazine, New Zealand just last week! Thank you to everyone who kindly made time to join us & to show Catherine around our wonderful city & share with her the history, cultural & food of Malaysia!

Video 1 is up! Thanks to Bryan for the wonderful editing & to both him & Nigel for the shoot. :)

Do watch it! Not for me obviously, but for Catherine, a visitor to our country who is really interested in learning more about Malaysia’s people, cuisine & culture. Watch as she enjoys her bak kut teh, nasi lemak & yong tau fu!

I had another video made; and this one’s for her culinary trip to our historical Baba Nyonya state Malacca. Stay tuned for that yea! We gorged ourselves silly on pork lard popiah (spring rolls), had the most delightful true-blue nyonya dinner & chicken rice balls.
Would have loved to join her in Kuching prior to her visit in Malacca but unfortunately that was a bit of a stretch to fly all the way there. Anyhow, she loved Kuching food! Thanks Pierce for bringing her around! :)

So, feedback anyone? Where would you have bought her to dine if you were hosting her? I would love to hear of your suggestions! :)

    Your vid was so interesting that i actually sat through the whole 7minutes of it! Nice editing, and you really played the part. Macam pro food show hostess leh.. walk walk walk, talk talk talk, hand gestures, and most importantly food into mouth moves were gracefully done! 🙂

    Did I say nice editing? They really did a good job editing it.

    Love this kind of video, u should do more of this 😀 So i’m somehow curious with the ending part of the video. Hehe. What if I’ll say I’m interested :DD

    Oh oh and if I have the opportunity to bring Catherine around, I’ll bring her to places that are famous only around the small area but the food is good. And favourite stall at weekly pasar malam. Prolly hot spots like Murni, Nasi Lemak Mali’s, Nasi Lemak Kg Baru, etc. too 😀

      Hi Aracy!
      Oh you are most welcome to contact me if you’re interested.
      And totally agree, only places of good food will do. But not necessarily famous.
