Literally. Many much more and aplenty dishes can be created with chicken? Of course. Stop doubting me neither you should doubt yourself. Its a fact. Any which chicken part for any which chicken dish you want (Indian Chicken Curry, Chinese Black Vinegar Chicken, Curry Chicken Noodles & Chicken Wanton Soup). You name it, we can by far have it. However, it all depends on you. Whether you are dependent on the same dishes over and over again, or you are willing to give a go to something new or different (Salted Egg Chicken, Grilled Chicken Wings, Butter Chicken, Chicken Vegetable Soup & Sweet Chilli Chicken)? Which cooking direction I am taking you to right now? Chicken, easy and grilling. Easy, as you know is me. Even as a person I am easy going and when its my cooking, do I have to speak any further (Baked Cornflakes Chicken, Braised Chicken Feet, Curried Roast Chicken, Spicy Fried Wings & Chicken Varuval). Grilling? Not open grilling, rather in the over the stove portable grill. Moreover, I don't think you will struggle in getting the ingredients. If you can't get lemongrass, perhaps return back to the conventional metal skewers or those wood skewers will do. And finally, what should I say? Pair this Easy Chicken Kebab alongside, I have given you the option to Spicy Mashed Potatoes. Otherwise, its really up to you.

Siem Reap. Like I have already told you, the main highlight in Siem Reap? Must do. Must explore. Must experience. Angkor Wat. Otherwise, don't bother coming this far or near from wherever you are. What else can you embark on in Siem Reap? Maybe, best will be me sharing what we did in Siem Reap and then, you can decide if you want to opt for the same (Ho Chi Minh City). Our day starting on the same note, hotel buffet breakfast, followed by. Artisan d’Angkor. Artisan d'Angkor. Set up as a social responsibility form for lending support for the underprivileged boys and girls. Training them on hand skills for ensuring they can positively move forward in life now and forever.

Last night’s dinner hunger story (Ho Chi Minh City)? Hellish! I don't even want to talk about. Cramping bus loads of tourists in one specific, no doubt a spacious space, for buffet and cultural show thrown in. Madness. Hardly any space for even pulling out your chair and standing in the queue amongst the hungry like wolves, all walk of life humans? Not my scene. Not at all. Pushing, rushing and waiting, as though you are begging for free meal. I ate so little and I quickly left. To my room within five minutes walk, I showered and to curb my hunger, a hot cuppa of coffee, before literally forcing sleep over me.

Mutton or lamb? Tough question. For us personally, both goes. Both, mutton (Mutton Keema & Masala Mutton Curry) and lamb cuts both ways. Meaning, in other words, we don't mind either one. Of course, we Indians, don't you think we prefer mutton (Mutton Kurma, Mutton Dalca & Mutton Pepper Masala)? You bet. I had a tough call as well for this kofta curry. Should I use mutton or lamb (Malaysian Lamb Curry Noodles & Malaysian Lamb Stew). In the end, I settled for lamb (Lamb Burgers & Lamb Fried Rice). Why, are you asking me? Minced lamb on this particular day was easier availability and I didn't want to do the mutton (Mutton Parathal & Mutton Soup) mincing on my own. Honestly, for someone like me who like to be in my kitchen for the shortest time, I as you know am an easy home cook, I really can't be bothered with mincing. Of course, I agree when minced meat is an overall concern, what about the ratio to meat and fats? Therefore, you decide while I get moving to this Lamb Kofta Curry. Kofta? I think I have already told you (Indian Mutton Meatball Soup & Chicken Meatball Soup)? Vibrant and salivating simmering curry made from a mixture of spices, and kofta gently dropped inside.

My first ever solo travel (Bangkok Thailand Part 2 & Chonburi). Tadaa! I did it. I sure did. A proud moment of mine. In fact, one of the most proudest by far in my entire life. Me daring myself to travelling alone (Ayutthaya). Thereafter? On the go again. Thanks to the insights, mainly on courage and ditching aside fear I have already picked up. But not as in solo, solo again. I actually joined a tour group. Where to? Vietnam & Cambodia by paying more compared to the stated amount due to single room occupant. Otherwise, everything else being equal and square. Same package basically. The day arrived and off to the airport where tour guide was already on stand-by, and before going up in the air for landing in Tan Son Nhat airport, followed by to Liberty Central Hotel for our one night stay. At this juncture, friendship ice-berg still at it rawness. Meaning? Friendship water has not been broken though we did smile at each other and after collecting our keys, off to our respective rooms. My room. Sincerely. A comfort zone. Nothing to complain about. Simple yet elegant. Spic and span, and ample space for me, myself and I.

The in between, between our sightseeing (Bangkok Part 2)? Stop-over in Royal Thai Handicraft Center (Ayutthaya & Bangkok Part 1). A promising start once you stand outside for admiring the craftsmanship and craftswoman-ship. Trust me, admirable skills. But these men or women at work. They can't be bothered in looking at you. Like zombies, they will just continue doing what they are doing. No action and reaction even if you try to make eye contact or you want to smile at them. I suppose we just leave them alone? Logically.

Back to the hotel after a fulfilling tour in Ayutthaya (Ayutthaya Thailand). Quite a tiring one too. In and out of the bus and sightseeing by itself, you gotto walk your legs from one end to the other hunny bunny. Let's not also forget about the weather in Thailand. Mostly, burning sun. Even so, my enthusiasm for more of Bangkok (Bangkok Thailand Part 1) didn't dwell. I still wanted more and the more awaiting me tonight, Calypso Cabaret Show. Sandwich and a drink packed back from MBK Mall and me tucking in, in my room and by 7.00pm, off to Calypso Cabaret Show by hopping into the van. Calypso Cabaret Show. My-My! Colorful costumes, fun, fantastic, lively, raunchy, sexy, laughter, crowd pleasing, crowd teasing and polished performance by the lady boys. What a show. A show which kept my glued to my seat for an hour. Simply superb.
