Mya Shwe Taung Tea Shop – Air-Conditioned Tea Shop in Mandalay

Google says that winter in Myanmar is November to February, which is why my colleague Su and I decided to go in November. It is still as hot, probably because it is just the start of winter.

Rock & Sole Plaice – Oldest Fish and Chip Restaurant in London

Besides pie and mash and sticky toffee pudding (both of which I have tried at Mother Mash), fish and chips is another iconic British food.  Considering that fish and chips originated from the United Kingdom, it seems wrong not to have fish and chips at least once while I am in London.  Instead of searching […]
