Rice paddy fieldsIf you've been following my food posts, there are probably only a couple restaurants out of many hundreds that I would never recommend to my readers.

Trust me, the view of Bali's rice field is unique. Majestic, if I am only allowed to use a word to describe it.

Millet Dumpling at Water Drop Tea HouseIf you're a vegan that arrive in George Town Penang starving, head straight into Water Drop Tea House at Lebuh Penang with no regret.
