Baan Rao, Petaling Jaya

Thai food is something Jien and I have most in common with, among the rest of our favourite cuisines. Flavours are exciting and textures are amazing, which leaves us satisfied more often than not. We’ve heard good things about Baan Rao in Petaling Jaya, said to serve hearty Thai food that’s not a pain...

Kin San Kichi, Desa Sri Hartamas

My reader Roland recommended Kin San Kichi in Desa Sri Hartamas to me, citing it as his go-to place for affordable Japanese food for many years. I’ve walked past this place many times on my way to yoga class, but never once thought of stepping in to explore until the recommendation came about. Kin San...

A Letter To Our Daughter

To our daughter, We have finally made it to the 40-week mark and it has been an incredible yet challenging journey thus far. I never knew my heart could accommodate so much love until you came along and showed me it’s possible. While I tried my best to keep you safe and nurtured all these [] The...

Sitka Restaurant, Damansara Heights

“We don’t fusion the dish. We adopt the techniques”. That was what Chef Kim shared when Jien and I popped by Sitka Restaurant in Damansara Heights for a casual Sunday dinner. This cosy space is where one can find dishes of traditional ingredients and fresh produce, prepared using modern techniques. On...

Mekong Thai Restaurant, SS2

Thai cuisine is one of the best things to eat in my opinion; the myriad of flavours and textures one enjoys in a bite and the many colours one finds on a plate. Suffice to say, Thai cuisine remains one of my favourites to eat and you’ll find me agreeing to a Thai meal quite [] The post Mekong Thai...

BBQ Kong Meng, Cheras

As a kid, I thought Sunrise serve “the best duck in the whole wide world” because it was the only roast duck my dad would eat but the minute I sank my teeth into the roast duck from Four Season in Bayswater, my world changed. Since then, I’ve been on a lookout for good roast [] The post BBQ...

Perfect Lips in 5 Minutes

Beauty writer: Angeline Tan I believe nothing empowers a woman more than putting on lipstick. It is your ammunition, and whenever you need, a quick wipe of it on the lips will have you looking ready to conquer the world. Any beginner to makeup always starts with lipstick, because it’s easy and effortless!

Ah Or Pork Noodle, Sunway Mentari

A bowl of well-made pork noodles is forthright comforting, especially when the broth is done well. When it comes to noodle preference, I always opt for hor fun (kuay teow) for that slippery texture and mild-tasting nature – which doesn’t alter the flavour of the soup. Ah Or Pork Noodles in Sunway...

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...
