  1. Roz,
    Mee Jawa is my favour but unfortunely there is no English translation.
    Apppreciate you can let those who like to taste our Sarawak dishes with only little understand of BM.
    I love your blog very much. Everyday I must open your blog to get some idea esp. Malay food. Hopefully can try some of your food esp. chicken during the weekend.
