Lonely Planet: Mmmmmarvelous Malay

Lonely Planet: Mmmmmarvelous Malay

Thanks to my dear friend Austin at Real Thai, Rasa Malaysia is mentioned on Lonely Planet blog. (Steamy Kitchen, yes, this is very cool!)

Austin is my mentor in DSLR photography. I’ve learned so much from him, especially after I bought my Canon Digital Rebel XT (one of my best investments I must say!). Austin patiently replied to my multiple emails and answered my dumb questions, taught me DSLR 101, and shared precious tips with me.

If you want to know how professional photography is done, head over to his post here. You should also check out his gorgeous, unpretentious, and vivid pictures here, here, and here.

P.S. Austin, thanks for the plug. Terima kasih banyak banyak.

Left impression on me. :D ..If I really go to Penang one day, my turn to ask you question, okie?

  5. Passionate Eater

    What fitting recognition! I agree entirely–you’ve taught me so much about Malaysian food and culture. Each visit to your site is educational and like a trip to Malaysia (or China)! Congratulations and thank you for your wonderful blog!

    How do you like your Canon Digital Rebel. I’m thinking of getting a nicer camera but am torn between power and portability.

  7. Oh for the love of food!

    Congratulations, RM! how cool is that!
    I have decided to get the Canon Rebel XT but not immediately as I’ve just spent a bomb on this new MacBook. I will be looking to you for lots of advice and tips when i eventually get it, if thats ok.
