Multiracial Kuala Lumpur is an all-day dining experience

The most popular meal to start the day is nasi lemak, Malaysia's national dish.

Malaysia is a melting pot of race and ethnicity; food carries influences not only from the Malay, Chinese and Indians who live there now, but also the British, Dutch and Portuguese who once did.

Holidays in Kuala Lumpur are all about eating, and for Hong Kong foodies, who like their dishes heavy on multiculturalism, there's no better weekend getaway.

Cool greens

Water spinach - also called ong choi, morning glory, kangkong and water convolvulus - is a vegetable that's occasionally in the news, although not necessarily for positive reasons. In the United States, it's considered an invasive weed because the plant grows quickly and clogs up dams and waterways.
