Nam Heong, Pavilion Elite

Nam Heong in Ipoh is one of the pit-stops I’d make when I’m in the city as they offer a range of Ipoh favourites like the egg tarts, which I enjoy. When I heard of their venture into Klang Valley, a part of me felt sceptical – would the food be the same? My recent [] The post Nam Heong,...

Bangsar Babe takes a break

It’s been almost a week since I last updated this blog, partly because work has been all-consuming and I was really focusing on client projects from the agency end. I also took a short break from blogging because Jien whisked me away to Lombok for a short retreat to celebrate my birthday. The year has...

The Crusty Nest, SS15 Subang Jaya

Good pies are hard to come by and I’ve been disappointed with a number of specialty pie shops in Klang Valley until Jien took me to The Crusty Nest in SS15 Subang Jaya. He ate one of their pies during a meeting prior that week and thought it was good. Seeing how I’m also on [] The post The Crusty...

Bangsar Babe in U.S.

Am documenting my trip to the US which is way overdue to a point I’m starting to forget! Jien and I have always wanted to visit the States and since my dad wanted to celebrate CNY in London, we figured it was a good time to also explore the US, by using London as a [] The post Bangsar Babe in U.S.

Yellow Apron, Section 13 Petaling Jaya

Yellow Apron in Section 13 Petaling Jaya hits a couple of right notes with Jien and I – him, more than myself as he’s a bigger fan of burgers and modern cuisine. The team at Yellow Apron combines the best of east and west in a contemporary space, which we both found enjoyable. Our good [] The...

Body Soul at Club Med Bintan

Travel writer: Melissa Foo A year ago, I came to know about Club Med Bintan when one of my teenage idols, Denise Keller (think Channel V days) shared her snapshots of the resort on Instagram. Impressed with what I saw, Club Med became one of my imaginary holiday choices whenever I felt the itch to []...

Long Chim, Singapore

“Best Thai food in Singapore”, so Long Chim claims. I had the pleasure of dining at this internationally acclaimed Thai restaurant in Marina Bay Sands when I was in the city two months back. Long Chim is said to be Singapore’s finest Thai restaurants and judging from the dinner crowd that night, I...

Restoran Hua Mui, Johor Bahru

Hui Mui in Johor Bahru oozes an old school charm amidst the row of new cafés along Jalan Dhoby and Jalan Trus. Established since 1946, the place is said to serve the original Hainanese chicken chop in JB. We initially wanted to pop by It Roo Café just up the road but it wasn’t open [] The post...

Pampas Reserve, Suasana Bukit Ceylon

I’ve always pegged Pampas Reserve as a happy hour joint – the drinks are reasonable and it’s located right smack in the middle of Kuala Lumpur. Suasana Bukit Ceylon to be exact. What I didn’t realise was they also serve steak, which I pleasantly discovered last week when Jien took me there for our...

Uncle Seng Restaurant, SS15 Subang Jaya

I like to believe there are three types of noodle eaters out there – the kon loh (dry style) eater, soup noodles eater and the soup drinker. I fall under the soup drinker category and would always finish the soup/broth before my noodles. Dry style noodles aren’t quite my thing as I love it when...

B.A.J Restaurant, Setapak

Cheese seems to be the magic ingredients for everything these days – cheese fried chicken, cheesy cream soup, cheese with ramen and now, cheese with bak kut teh. Jien overheard (eavesdropped) a bunch of college students raving about the “damn nice and super awesome” cheese bak kut teh from B.A.J...

What kind of email person are you?

My former boss (I’ll call her Z) had this habit where she would pick up the phone, speak to whoever she needs to speak to and follow up the conversation with an email recap. When I joined her team, she often told me off for sending out emails to counterparts or clients, because she didn’t [] The...

Xiu Ye Mao Pan Mee (小夜猫), Jinjang

I remember attempting to make pan mee in the UK – skyping with my mum in my room with a bag of flour, egg, water and an empty beer bottle in hand. Yeah, I was too cheap to buy myself a rolling pin haha! They were the worst noodles I’ve eaten in my life and [] The post Xiu Ye Mao Pan Mee...

IT Roo Cafe, Johor Bahru

IT Roo Café in Johor Bahru claims to serve the best chicken chop in town – and judging from the crowd and queue when I paid them a visit, that claim must have been true. Either that, or it’s the hype. Jien and I got ourselves a table inside IT Roo, where space is a [] The post IT Roo Cafe, Johor...

Dian Huo Xin Wo, Kelana Jaya

Ask me to choose between hotpot and barbecue, and I’ll always pick the former. I reckon it’s the Chinese in me where I need to have soupy things all the time, and hotpot is often the remedy to a rough day or week. Dian Huo Xin Wo in Kelana Jaya came highly recommended by my [] The post Dian Huo...

Zheng Ji Restaurant, Cheras

Cheras Business Centre isn’t an area I would have thought of exploring for food, but a friend took me to Zheng Ji for dinner a couple of months back and I liked what we ate. Jien and I returned again for dinner with the family last weekend and since there were 10 of us, we [] The post Zheng Ji...

Juggling

As I sit in the office working through several presentation decks with my team for upcoming projects and client pitches, I ponder the thought of an escape. A place where I do absolutely nothing but lie on the sand and drink all the bubbly I can stomach. It’s been a crazy, crazy few months – []...

Golden Thai Seafood, Jalan Ipoh

With the emergence of food portals offering reviews from as low as RM100 to RM2,500 per feature, I find it more and more difficult to believe in food recommendations on social media. Unless it came from a trustworthy source or from my own experience. Golden Thai Seafood in Jalan Ipoh was recommended to me...

Two Buka Puasa Spreads You Must Check Out This Ramadan

As the month of Ramadan approaches, restaurants and hotels are gearing up to ensure they deliver the best ‘buka puasa’ spread one can ask for. Signature masakan kampung dishes, heirloom recipes and old favourites all come out to play – making it difficult for diners to stop at just one or two...

Fancy Breakfast Club, Bangsar

The interior of Fancy Breakfast Club reminds me of what youd find on a kinfolk magazine – minimal yet put together, with an etched feature wall to add to the dining ambiance. Jien and I popped by for brunch after my yoga class, after hearing about the breakfast club’s version 3.0 from friends.
