Masala Wheels, Petaling Jaya

Masala Wheels was in my food radar just recently, when we drove past the restaurant after our lunch at my favourite banana leaf joint nearby.

Hon Kei Food Corner, Penang

Penang folks tend to be slightly more defensive (and patriotic) when it comes to their food, especially those from the island, I feel. I say this because I often receive comments and emails from Penangites whenever I write about food in Penang or Penang food in Klang Valley. I first visited Hon Kei back in...

Dao, SS15 Subang Jaya

I first visited Dao three months ago when Jien insisted we go for dessert after lunch in SS15 Subang Jaya. He was adamant I give Dao a shot as he’s been frequenting this place with his colleagues when they go for lunch within the vicinity. Dao is located down the road from the famous SS15 [] The...

Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea, ICC Pudu

One of the few food places Jien took me to during our courtship days was Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea – he would pick me up at 7.30am and drive me all the way to Imbi for a breakfast of kaya toast and Hainan tea.

Taste Legendary Nasi Lemak, Chow Kit

Taste Legendary Nasi Lemak has been popping up on my news feed of late – numerous post shares from friends and acquaintances, claiming the nasi lemak is very good. With so many rave reviews, it’s hard not to want to try it for myself. So I dragged myself out of bed at 7am on a [] The post Taste...

Burnin’ Pit, Desa Sri Hartamas

I first found out about Burnin’ Pit earlier this year, when Jien spotted a large smoker out front the restaurant when we drove past.

Nespresso Long Black Friday

I don’t know about the rest of you, but my 11.11 shopping didn’t pan out too well. I stayed up and waited till the promo was valid and shopped my heart out, only to arrive at the checkout section for the payment gateway to crash. Five times. In the end, I didn’t get to buy [] The post Nespresso...

Breastfeeding – It’s not all rainbows and butterflies.

Before May Anne was born, Jien and I read up on baby books and signed up for a breastfeeding course – with hopes of breastfeeding our little girl for as long as possible. I had a rather difficult start where there was almost no colostrum, let alone milk. May Anne was also born with a [] The post...

Slightly older than a decade

This year has been a rollercoaster for me as I take on a new role – motherhood. On top of my existing roles of a writer, social media personality, creative director and wife. Amidst the chaos of juggling (and naturally, prioritising our daughter), here’s me taking some time to properly celebrate the...

CK Noodle House, Bandar Sunway

Jien often comes home from work with food; his attempt to show me love and care.

If there’s one thing that differentiates Jien and I, it would be our sense of adventure when it comes to food. While we tend to go for similar dishes, our choice of restaurants are for from the same. Wizards at Tribeca is one of them — he’s been wanting to try the food there ever [] The post...

BananaBro, Berjaya Times Square

If you’re visiting Malaysia, a meal of banana leaf rice is a must if you want to experience as much Malaysian cuisine as possible.

Taking health more seriously, one power salad at a time.

I’m not one to order salads at a restaurant because I often picture a big pile of green with hardly anything on top. But ever since I started yoga, I’m more inclined to hearty salad bowls with fiber, protein and fillings – Power Salad. A proper power salad is packed with nutrients, healthy fats,...

Hotel Feature: Sheraton Petaling Jaya

I’ve always pegged the Sheraton brand as a business hotel – based on the city hotels I’ve stayed at for work and leisure in the past. But my stay at Sheraton Petaling Jaya Hotel changed the way I perceive the Sheraton brand; personalised, fuss-free and family oriented. Jien and I spent the long...
