Hua Xing Restaurant, Sungei Way

Hua Xing in Sungei Way has been around for many years and I’ve heard good things about it back in the early days of blogging even. But it wasn’t until recently that I paid them a visit with Jien, who told me the food is decent after trying it for lunch with his colleagues. The [] The post Hua...

Nan Feng Bak Kut Teh, Klang

Bak Kut Teh is one of the many things one should try when visiting Malaysia – this concoction of herbal broth and pork cuts simmered for hours until the fats dissolve, making the broth concentrated and packed with flavour. A colleague of Jien highly recommends Nan Feng Bak Kut Teh which we checked out a...

Moody Cow Cafe, Penang

A Penang friend of mine insisted I check out Moody Cow Café along Transfer Road when I visited Penang in late December, claiming the café serves possibly the best cake on the island. Coming from someone who rarely eats cake, I was intrigued by why this place made him fork a cake when he’s perpetually...

Ah Foong Bak Kut Teh, Sunway

Jien has a colleague who raves about Ah Foong Bak Kut Teh in Sunway – apparently, it’s one of the better bak kut teh options around their office vicinity. This bak kut teh shop is located along a row of shop lots in a housing area opposite Sunway Pyramid; pretty easy to locate using Waze. [] The...

Robert Char Kuay Teow, Lucky Seng Coffeeshop

It’s been more than 10 years since I blogged about my favourite char kuay teow spot in KL – Robert Char Kuay Teow in Section 17 PJ. Jien and I have been patronising his stall since we were in college and now that he recently relocated to another coffeeshop across the road, I figured it [] The...

Bangkok, with my loves

I’ve been mooting the idea of bringing May Anne on holidays with us, to which Jien agreed when she turned 6 months old. We took her to Singapore by car and three weeks later, she was on her first flight – to Bangkok. Jien and I last visited Bangkok in early 2017 when he travelled [] The post...

Masala Wheels, Petaling Jaya

Masala Wheels was in my food radar just recently, when we drove past the restaurant after our lunch at my favourite banana leaf joint nearby. I spotted quite a number of people dining under the large tree across the restaurant, which prompted me to list the restaurant down in my to-try list. Jien and I...

Hon Kei Food Corner, Penang

Penang folks tend to be slightly more defensive (and patriotic) when it comes to their food, especially those from the island, I feel. I say this because I often receive comments and emails from Penangites whenever I write about food in Penang or Penang food in Klang Valley. I first visited Hon Kei back in...

Dao, SS15 Subang Jaya

I first visited Dao three months ago when Jien insisted we go for dessert after lunch in SS15 Subang Jaya. He was adamant I give Dao a shot as he’s been frequenting this place with his colleagues when they go for lunch within the vicinity. Dao is located down the road from the famous SS15 [] The...

Saint Pierre, Kuala Lumpur

Saint Pierre in Kuala Lumpur was top on my to-try list when I first heard it was coming to W Kuala Lumpur. Founded by Chef Emmanuel Stroobant, the team in Kuala Lumpur is headed by Chef Kim Kevin de Dood — most of them from Saint Pierre in Singapore. Like many fine dining establishments I’ve []...

Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea, ICC Pudu

One of the few food places Jien took me to during our courtship days was Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea – he would pick me up at 7.30am and drive me all the way to Imbi for a breakfast of kaya toast and Hainan tea. Back then, I didn’t know much about food so I [] The post Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea, ICC Pudu...

Taste Legendary Nasi Lemak, Chow Kit

Taste Legendary Nasi Lemak has been popping up on my news feed of late – numerous post shares from friends and acquaintances, claiming the nasi lemak is very good. With so many rave reviews, it’s hard not to want to try it for myself. So I dragged myself out of bed at 7am on a [] The post Taste...

Burnin’ Pit, Desa Sri Hartamas

I first found out about Burnin’ Pit earlier this year, when Jien spotted a large smoker out front the restaurant when we drove past. Curiosity got the better of me and I popped by the restaurant with my friends to see what they had to offer before deciding to go again with Jien. Alas, luck [] The...

Nespresso Long Black Friday

I don’t know about the rest of you, but my 11.11 shopping didn’t pan out too well. I stayed up and waited till the promo was valid and shopped my heart out, only to arrive at the checkout section for the payment gateway to crash. Five times. In the end, I didn’t get to buy [] The post Nespresso...

Breastfeeding – It’s not all rainbows and butterflies.

Before May Anne was born, Jien and I read up on baby books and signed up for a breastfeeding course – with hopes of breastfeeding our little girl for as long as possible. I had a rather difficult start where there was almost no colostrum, let alone milk. May Anne was also born with a [] The post...

Slightly older than a decade

This year has been a rollercoaster for me as I take on a new role – motherhood. On top of my existing roles of a writer, social media personality, creative director and wife. Amidst the chaos of juggling (and naturally, prioritising our daughter), here’s me taking some time to properly celebrate the...

CK Noodle House, Bandar Sunway

Jien often comes home from work with food; his attempt to show me love and care. He would have takeaway fried chicken, burgers and of late, pork noodles from this lunch place he’s been frequenting called CK Noodle House in Bandar Sunway. We went there together recently as he wanted me to try the other...
