Wednesday Rojak

In this series of weekly rojaks (which will be published on Wednesdays) I’ll feature other sites in the blogosphere that are of related to archaeology in Southeast Asia.

What’s a rojak? If you had to ask, you’re probably from outside Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. The rojak can be inadequately described as a fruit and vegetable salad – inadequate because a lot more goes into a rojak than cucumber, turnip and pineapple. It can be safely said that no two rojak recipes are the same. Hell, some rojaks don’t even have cucumber, turnip or pineapple.

In this series of weekly rojaks (which will be published on Wednesdays) I’ll feature other sites in the blogosphere that are of related to archaeology in Southeast Asia. In this edition:

  • Follow the exploits of two girls as they visit the temples in Cambodia in Camwhoring Cambodia. Sounds naughty, but in fact it’s a travel blog about the pair’s visit to Siem Reap and the Angkor temples. Check out the July 21 post about the grinning apsaras, too.
  • Leo, a Malaysian “pastry chef in the wrong profession” makes a visit to the Bujang Valley in Kedah, Malaysia.

Got a recommendation for the next Wednesday rojak? Email me!
