This month, the Roving Reporter asked: What is your favorite place for an outdoor picnic?

I have always been fascinated with cherry blossoms and Japanese culture. My picnic spot would be next to the Tidal Basin [by the Jefferson Memorial] when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. For the picnic, I would bring sushi, plum wine, and an inari made from sweet rice stuffed in a fried tofu pocket.

Potomac Park, because it is nice to enjoy the view and see what’s going on around you.

I recommend the National Arboretum, where you can also go walking or biking and there are trees and flowers all around. The National Mall is another great place for a picnic.

In my country of Malaysia, I recommend eating at the Kuala Lampur Centennial Center. There are many good and inexpensive places to eat there. In the U.S., I love to sit outside at restaurants in Manhattan.
