(CNN) — The first clue is the name itself: The Sake Place. In busy Kuala Lumpur, Danny Leong's restaurant is a place to sit, relax and enjoy a glass of some of the world's best sake. "I think the best way to get people excited about sake is food," Leong says. "Everyone loves food!" And he knows what he's talking about. Leong is the first person in Malaysia to earn the coveted title of Master Sake Sommelier, and he takes his role as a food and drink ambassador seriously. While Japanese food is popular in Malaysia, the idea of pairing sake with non-Japanese foods is a new twist that has been bringing curious diners into The Sake Place. "In this part of the world we use a lot of sauces and spices," Leong explains. His star dish brings sake into one of those trademark sauces: shellfish glass noodles in a spicy assam broth. The Sake Place's diverse menu includes a delicious Asian seabass dish.

The upcoming Tet will be a seven-day holiday that will start January 23, 2020, two days before the Lunar New Year. The Year of the Mouse will begin January 25 next year. Government offices and state-owned companies will close for seven days from January 23 to 29. Schools and other businesses across the country usually follow the same break as government offices. This option is one of the two seven-day options proposed by the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs last August. Under the second option, the holiday would have started on January 24, a day before Tet, and run until January 30, the sixth day of the new lunar year. But the ministry said this option would not give migrant workers enought to travel home. Vietnam got a nine-day break for the last Tet festival … [Read more...] about Vietnam to enjoy 7-day Lunar New Year break
The Bank of England says the U.K. financial system is prepared for a no-deal Brexit, though uncertainties about the country’s withdrawal from the European Union continue to weigh on economic activity.The bank’s Financial Policy Committee, which assesses financial risks, said Wednesday that legislation, temporary permissions and other preparations by British authorities have been made to “ensure that households and businesses will be able to use existing and new services from EU financial institutions.”However, it warned that without further action by EU authorities, “some disruption to cross-border financial services in the event of a no-deal Brexit is possible.”It also said that in a disorderly Brexit, demand for U.K. assets could be expected to “fall sharply, depreciating (the pound) and tightening financial conditions for U.K. households and businesses.” … [Read more...] about Bank of England: financial sector ready for no-deal Brexit
