I am a freelance Licensed Tour Guide. In 1983, I left my little Kampong (Village) for the Big City called KL (Kuala Lumpur) to work. Being away from Home Sweet Home, having Street Food this became the norm. The search food ad good as Mother’s home-cooked meals became a necessity. Searching for Old-time & Simply Fabulous Simple Food In KL & PJ (Petaling Jaya) & beyond led to discovering basic comfort food for the ordinary people in the back lanes, alleys & streets of British Colonial KL - Chinatown, Little India & Kampong Baru etc This experience will overwhelm you with the fabulous street food in Little India (Ampang KL) & less -known Tales or Tales not told quite often enough of British Colonial KL & more.
