Dog meat, is in fact quite delicious. They aren't known as the "fragrant meat" for nothing!
One tip I get when traveling is unless you're eating at the restaurant in the Sheraton or something that is known to have some sort of standard in hygiene, it is actually safer to eat where you can see the food being cooked so you can see that the germs get burnt or steamed to high heaven.
I quite like the toast that Malaysians make...
I had some great dog in East Timor, but the dog in Flores just wasn't as good!
Entirely agree on the "eat where you can see the cooking" philosophy - that's why the warungs/street stalls are so good.
Kaya toast is great.
When in Tokyo, a MUST stop is Book Off in Shibuya. They're a second hand department store that sells movies,TV shows, books, video games, and clothes. Some of the other shops around Tokyo and the rest of the country are quite weak when it comes to decent clothing, but the Shibuya store had a great range, including Schott, Aero, Barbout, RL, RRL, Buzz Rickson, Moscot and many more. It's where I picked up my black Aero jacket from.
Book Off also sells second-hand watches. I'm not sure what prices are like now, but it used to be a great place to pick up a second-hand Omega Speedy Pro in excellent condition.
