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...

Grub by Ahong, Section 17

Online reviews are generally a good indication of one’s would be dining experience at an FB establishment, if you take the time to read them and manage your expectation accordingly. As the writer behind Bangsarbabe.com, my reviews are meant to help my readers make more informed decisions. Which is...

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...

Kwong Wah Ice Kacang, Section 17

Part of the reason why I love incognito food hunts is the idea of experiencing unbiased food and service, just like everyone else. It is something Jien and I try to uphold for the Bangsar Babe brand, despite the lure of paid food reviews and complimentary meals. A fan of mine gave me a tip-off [] The...

Koyaku Japanese Dining, Taman Desa

Like most people, I have my go-to places when it comes to Japanese food but when the option in Bangsar closed, I’m left with little options. A friend suggested dinner at Koyaku Japanese Dining in Taman Desa, which happens to be his go-to spot for sashimi and rice bowls so Jien and I went. The []...

Flour, Bukit Damansara

With so many Indian restaurants in Klang Valley, I thought I knew enough about Indian cuisine. But I was so very wrong. Apparently, what Malaysians know about Indian food is barely the tip of the surface, as I soon learnt when I stepped into Flour in Bukit Damansara. At Flour, don’t expect to see butter...

Fittie Sense, Bangsar

Eating healthier has come more naturally to me these days; my father jokes that I’m slowly but surely morphing into my mum. It was my yoga instructor that recommended Fittie Sense to me as I’m supposed to refrain from sinful food after a workout session. Fittie Sense is located in Bangsar Baru and...

Cocodash by Cocoraw, Bangsar

Chocolates and desserts have always been Jien’s thing – he has a weaker spot for sweet treats compared to me. That’s also why our fridge at home is stocked with chocolates from our trips abroad. When we did BB10 last November, it was apt to have a dessert table with chocolates as a feature and...

Tian Hua Bak Kut Teh, Johor Bahru

When I was in Japan last week, I couldn’t stop thinking about bak kut teh and how delicious it would taste when consumed during winter. This herbal pot of porky goodness is already tasty when eaten in scorching hot weather and what more, when it’s below zero degrees? This reminded me of the bak kut...

Restoran Ruby, Pudu

When it comes to dessert, tong sui always gets me excited. Especially if peanut paste and black sesame paste is available. I’ve been going to the dessert shop across Restoran Ruby (PMK) for years until a friend told me to try Restoran Ruby for comparison instead. It was apt timing too, as PMK Dessert...

Lao Ma Zi, Tropicana

I’ve heard a lot of good things about this place that serves “dishes that taste like mother’s cooking” called Lao Ma Zi, and prices are said to be reasonable. The original branch is in Jalan Ipoh but they recently opened a second outlet at de Foliage in Tropicana Selatan. Reservations are required...

5 Instagram Worthy Cafes in Bangsar

Bangsar is a popular spot when it comes to café-hopping because most cafes are located along the same street or at the very most, a short drive from each other. From hipster cafes to pretty- looking ones, here are five Instagram-worthy cafes I recently checked out in my hood. Tiny Temptress Tiny Temptress...

Hotel Review: Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur

Staycations are one of my favourite things to indulge in every now and then – you leave home in pursuit of a getaway to relax and rejuvenate. Plus, there’s something incredibly satisfying about waking up in a nice hotel room with breakfast. At least for me. 🙂 Jien and I recently stayed at Grand Hyatt...

Nasi Lemak Restoran Sepetang, Taman Desa

Mornings are not my best in general so I always try and sleep in during the weekends to make up for lost sleep during the weekday. Because of that, I missed out on trying the Nyonya nasi lemak at Restoran Sepetang thrice. Each time I get there by 10am, they’re sold out. It was only [] The post Nasi...
