Hot Bowl White Curry Mee, Penang

When a good friend posted about her experience at Hot Bowl White Curry Mee in Penang, Jien and I were sold. We’ve been looking for a good place to indulge in our curry mee craving as my usual spot in Air Itam has become a tad difficult to access since it’s right smack in the [] The post Hot Bowl...

Leng Kee Claypot Bak Kut Teh, Jalan Ipoh

Bak Kut Teh means “meat bone tea”, a direct translation from Hokkien where different cuts of pork are simmered for hours in a broth laced with herbs and spices. I used to think there were two types of bak kut teh – the dark and thick version from Klang and the light, peppery version you’d []...

Duk Soo Ne, Solaris Mont Kiara

I equate Korean barbeque to me smelling like grilled meat after the meal, and I’m often right. Even the best suction fan can’t dispel the smoke and aroma from the meats grilling on hot plate. And then theres the oil sizzle bit when fat comes into contact with heat. If you’re dining inside Duk...

Hameediyah Nasi Kandar, Kota Damansara

Hameediyah Nasi Kandar in Kota Damansara originated from Penang – an establishment that has been around since 1907 and said to be the oldest nasi kandar restaurant in Malaysia. I tried their nasi kandar a few months back when Jien did a takeaway for lunch at home. It was pretty good but I wanted to...

Pho Vietz, Empire Subang

If you’re planning to dine at Pho Vietz in Empire Subang, lunch hour on a weekday can be quite chaotic. Jien mentioned the food is worth checking out and since I enjoy eating pho, we popped by to see what Pho Vietz has to offer. Expect a lot of movement to and fro the restaurant [] The post Pho...

Rediscovering Singapore

Singapore was always a work destination for me when I held a regional position during my corporate days. It was always a ‘first flight out on Monday’ scenario and I wouldn’t get to see much of the city apart of the conference hall, office and my hotel room. In the past year however, I got []...

Have you activated your PIN-enabled credit card?

A couple of weeks back, I attempted to purchase a cake using my credit card and the staff asked me to “key in my PIN” to confirm the payment. I didn’t have a PIN. That’s not the bank’s fault as they did send me a new PIN-enabled credit card which I conveniently forgot because I [] The post...

Big Singh Chapati, SS15 Subang Jaya

My first taste of chapati was at a friend’s Deepavali open house where her mother served me hot chapati with one of the best mutton curries I’ve eaten. We drifted apart over the years but I still remember her mother’s homemade chapati till this day. Funny how I bumped into the said friend at Big...

UPDATE: Nescafe Gold Blend Barista

I’ve been using the Nescafe Gold Blend Barista for close to 6 months and the machine has been making me my morning cuppa ever since. Friends who come over to our place like it too, as the machine is really easy to use with minimal clean-up. In fact, a few of my friends purchased the machine [] The...

How To Look Photo Worthy in 15 Minutes

A few of my female readers and fans have asked about my make-up routine and how long do I take to get ready every morning. I dont really have a routine per se; I take quite a few shortcuts so I can be ready and out the door in 15 minutes. If youre like me [] The post How...

I Am Not A Food Blagger

“You’re so lucky you get free food all the time.” That statement is my ultimate pet peeve when it comes to writing about food, even more than having other people copy my reviews. I didn’t get into blogging for freebies – I started out of passion and it is still something I’m very passionate...

The Fabulous Baker Boy, Singapore

It’s rare to find a baker who’s so passionate and confident about his daily bakes, yet humble enough to welcome constructive feedback so he can do better the next time. That was my impression of Juwanda Hashim when I visited The Fabulous Baker Boy in Singapore two weeks back. I met with my friends over...

Meat The Porkers, Publika

A lot of my friends spoke good things about the siew yoke briyani from Meat The Porkers in Publika – said to be Kuala Lumpur’s first non-halal Indian restaurant. This simple setup of a restaurant gets rather packed during weekends and you might need to queue for a table unless you make a reservation.

Ramen Izakaya Kazushi, Solaris Mont Kiara

It’s easy to walk past Ramen Izakaya Kazushi in Solaris Mont Kiara and miss it – an unassuming spot along the row of coffee spots and ‘loud’ Korean food joints. It was a friend of mine who suggested this venue for dinner and I’m glad she did because the food is quite good. Kazushi is [] The...

‘Sai Chow’ at SS15 Wet Market

Subang Jaya is fast becoming one of my favourite places to discover hidden gems as there’s plenty to explore amidst the multitude of cafés. Through a tip-off, Jien and I found ourselves in the middle of Pasar Moden MPSJ in SS15 Subang Jaya (SS15 Wet Market) where tasty noodles and fried rice can be...

Merchant’s Lane, Petaling Street

I’ve heard a lot about Merchant’s Lane in Petaling Street – a café that occupies a spot along the row of shops/hostels in Jalan Petaling. Parking can be quite difficult to find unless you don’t mind paying RM15 for an open-air parking lot with pebbled surface; most people do that. Merchant’s Lane...

Hai Di Lao, Singapore

My first Hai Di Lao experience was in Shanghai and it was both a terrifying and eye-opening experience. The taxi driver we got couldn’t read or write so the directions written by our hotel concierge was futile. To make things worse, there were a lot of things I couldn’t pronounce in Mandarin and long...

Scarborough Fish Chips, Langkawi

Eating in Langkawi can be a tad tricky if you don’t drive, which was why Jien and I rented a car to get around the island. One of the places we found was Scarborough Fish Chips along Tanjung Rhu, said to serve traditional English style fish and chips. Scarborough Fish Chips is a [] The...
