Kettle of Chinese Tea Eggs

I came across this pot of Tea Eggs in the China Town are of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Tea eggs are regular eggs, boiled in a concoction of tea and other spices; commonly cinnamon, fennel seeds, star anise and cloves. They are also called Marble eggs because of their appearance after they are peeled. Although the recipe originated in China they are commonly sold in street markets throughout the world as a savory snack.

I took the photo because I like the earth toned colors and the patterns made by the cracks. I made the image with my Canon EOS 6D 20.2 MP DSLR with theEF24-105mm IS Lens Kit. I didn’t get a chance to try the eggs this trip but I am sure the opportunity will arise soon.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
