E and I are pretty adventurous when it comes to food- we'll eat almost anything except hairy tarantulas (they were black and hairy the size of my fist, no thanks!).

Some of the more exotic dishes we've had are raw horse meat, frog legs, fried worms and crickets, stir-fried river snakes, pork tripe and yellow eels.

As much as possible, we try to eat as the locals do when we travel- which means no touristy places or fancy restaurants, and better still if the menu is only available in their native language. :P

However, on my birthday I was craving for good old Chinese cuisine, so he booked us a place at Gold Leaf restaurant in Burwood and we stuffed ourselves with dim sums. We love our chicken feet- I pretty much asked every waiter that pushed their cart by us if they were serving them! :P

My birthday
yumcha treat

We weighed ourselves this morning and realized that we've both gained 2 kilos over the festive season. Time to watch our diet!
