... t have tried on our own and introduced us to foods we hadn't tried yet, the most unusual ones being sandworms with pork (all minced up) and fried into a pattie and to finish we had some desserts similar to ice kachang and sticky black rice pudding with yoghurt and then egg coffee which we had seen on menus but not game to try.

Before we knew it we were on our way to our very own private island (Nam Cat) where we would spend the second night of our trip in a bungalow a few metres from the sea.
