My Passion: Eating Good Food and Traveling The World.

 Andrew LIM asks, "Lei Sek Bao Mei?"
"Lei Sek Bao Mei" is a common Cantonese greeting among the older generation in Asia inquiring if one has eaten yet. Actually, to be precise, if one has eaten until he/she is full yet. Growing up in Malaysia, I would hear this greeting all the time. Keeping a full stomach is important to the older generation there. This is because they have lived through a war and realize the importance of food. I may not have lived through any war, but keeping a full stomach is also important to me.  I like to keep my stomach full with food that tastes good. I also like to impart my knowledge of eating good food, along with traveling to fun places, with others. When you happen to run into an old Asian lady who asks if you have eaten yet, I want you to be able to say "hell ya, and I ate a great tasting meal too!".

Andrew loves to eat. He has a strong knowledge of great restaurants in many cities, especially those serving Asian food. Friends and clients of Andrew have always trusted him with giving them advice on where to dine. They have also trusted him with ordering for the table whenever he is present at the dining party. The only problem is, he tends to over order.

He has researched not only the eating out trends of the Americans but also those of the Mainland Chinese, Koreans, Taiwanese and Nigerians.
