Lorong Selamat Char Kuay Teow, Yong Sheng USJ14

There are many versions of char kuay teow around – some wet-ish, some spicier and some drier, depending on who’s behind the wok. In Klang Valley, I tend to favour the stall in Section 17 but a good friend of mine insisted I give Lorong Selamat Char Kuay Teow in USJ 14 a try. The [] The post...

Siew Ngap Fai, Pudu

We all have our favourite spot when it comes to food; influenced by upbringing, culture and personal preference. At least that’s my conclusion when it comes to writing about my favourite food places. A friend of ours recommended his favourite roast duck spot, claiming it’s much better than my regular...

Nasi Lemak Pokok Besar, Kepong

If there’s one type of food I can’t ever say no to, it’s fried, freaking chicken. My friends know this so well that they’d often have a fried chicken recommendation for me to try. One of them suggested that I try the fried chicken from this mamak called Nasi Lemak Pokok Besar in Kepong. It’s...

Hai Heng Pork Satay, Melaka

Eating out in Melaka is often a rewarding experience for me, especially since Jien’s father is very familiar with the food scene there. Jien too, is quite well-versed with the food scene having taken after his father when it comes to eating well. During our recent trip to Melaka, he took me to Hai Heng...

AVANI Sepang Goldcoast Resort

Retreats are one of the things Jien and I indulge in – our way of taking short breathers from the stress and chaos of our work routine. A short retreat really helps with resetting my mind and priorities and come Monday, I’m all geared up for another fast-paced week. AVANI Sepang Goldcoast Resort offers...

Makeup for Monolids

Beauty writer: Angeline Tan Anyone here feels my pain on eye-makeup for monolids? The struggle is real, and it has been since my love affair with makeup began. How could I even try to get a decent eye look when my flat and flabby eyelids roll over any colour I try to put on? And [] The post Makeup...

Okayu Shabu-Shabu, Damansara Uptown

Hot cauldron, thinly sliced meats and fresh vegetables are what I associate shabu shabu with. Japanese shabu shabu is a collegial experience for me – one that’s meant to be shared with friends where social conversation and gossips happen. I guess to me, that concept applies to any hotpot, Japanese,...

Vantador, Desa Sri Hartamas

Steak is something I take very seriously and while I have my default steakhouses to visit in town, I’m also open to new suggestions from fans and friends. When I last wrote about the dry-aged beef at my favourite steakhouse, I got quite a few messages from readers telling me I should try Vantador in...

Kayra, TTDI

“You should try Kayra in TTDI. My husband and I love going there.” A friend of mine told me that over lunch not too long ago, when the subject of Indian food came up. She’s been to a few of the places I recommended and since my knowledge in Indian cuisine isn’t as vast, I [] The post Kayra,...

Choon Yien Chicken Rice, Section 17

My mother used to buy a lot of chicken rice from Choon Yien in Section 17 as it was one of her regular lunch spots with her colleagues back in the days. That said, I never understood the hype of this chicken rice and the fact that I dislike chicken rice made me less open [] The post Choon Yien...

Sixty Bites Burger, TTDI

I still remember my first Ramly burger – Jien bought it for me when we just started dating and it was a sloppy, greasy and deliciously messy. And much to my mother’s dismay, it soon became one of my favourite things to eat. Friends have said good things about Sixty Bites Burger in TTDI, said []...

Forty Hands Coffee, Bangsar

Bangsar South is fast becoming a hub for food and coffee, given the recent opening of restaurants and cafés including the renowned Forty Hands Coffee from Singapore. Jien has been eyeing this place since we caught wind of its opening some time in February this year and finally got down to checking them out...

Short Escape – Resorts World Sentosa

Travel writer: Melissa Foo Whats the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Sentosa Island? For someone who has never set foot on Singapore’s most popular island resort, I can gladly say that my first experience is definitely one where expectations and reality were aligned (in a good...

Cinta Ria, Damansara Jaya

Everyone has a neighborhood restaurant they patronise for good old comfort food, I believe. For a close friend of ours, it happens to be Cinta Ria in Damansara Jaya. It’s been a family ritual for him and he recommended the restaurant to Jien and myself. If I’m not mistaken, Cinta Ria is managed by one...

Leng Loong Restaurant, Taman Equine

There is plenty to like about living in Bangsar – central location, plenty of amenities, great neighbourhood and good food, if you ask me. But the one thing I find incredibly lacking in Bangsar is the presence of Chinese tai chow (big fry) places, which forces me to explore other tai chow options...

Caffeine Chemistry Coffee, Penang

Just as coffee begins to hit a plateau, you find interesting coffee options to draw you back into the coffee drinking game. Like the one I tried at Caffeine Chemistry Coffee in Nagore Road, Penang two weeks ago. The café serves coffee beans from Catunambu but what interests me in giving them a try is...

Lim Ko Pi, Ipoh

Ipoh pitstops are a must whenever Jien and I are travelling up north – there’s something about the aroma of white coffee that gets the mood up. We were looking for a place to stop for coffee on our way back from Penang last weekend, and I remember bookmarking Lim Ko Pi in Ipoh Old [] The post Lim...

Tohoku Travel Guide

My first visit to Tohoku was in October 2016 when it was autumn and the leaves were changing colours. It was also the time of harvest so we got to enjoy the best rice and the freshest of vegetables and fruits. Last month, I visited Tohoku again but in winter, to see for myself what [] The post Tohoku...

Honolulu Cafe, Sunway Pyramid

Honolulu Café is one of my must-visit spots in Hong Kong as the egg tart is one of the best I’ve eaten – buttery, flaky pastry with silken egg custard and an aroma that can entice one to call of their diet. I had a really difficult time restraining myself from ordering everything and my [] The...
