    fei ma curry puff3

    I have a thing for street food. A big thing. And one of the best part about living in Malaysia is the plentiful street food. They’re pretty much everywhere, sometimes even in the most unexpected nooks and corners.   I like how quick, convenient and affordable street food is. Whether you are rich or...

      On a recent trip to Bangkok, I took the opportunity to pick up some snacks since my stock pile back home was running low. Lay’s potato chips are a must whenever I’m in Thailand. There is so much more variety here and some of the flavors are not available back home in Malaysia....

    jade garden tonic soup

    I’m a firm believer in Traditional Chinese Medicine, largely due to my Chinese roots. Mum used to prepare all sorts of herbal tonic soup at home. I remember my dislike for these usually bitter concoction and Mum always had to persuade me to drink up. Now that I’m living on my own and spending long...

    yook woo hin - lady with dim sum trolley

    It is with a heavy heart that I learnt Yook Woo Hin has closed down. This decades old restaurant was one of the few surviving places serving traditional dim sum. Operating in a pre-war shophouse in Petaling Street, Yook Woo Hin had retained much of its original fixture and nostalgic, old-world charm.    I...

    warorot market 24

    I didn’t mind waking up early to visit Warorot market. We had a full day ahead and the only way I could sneak in a visit was to sacrifice some sleep. Which I gladly did. It was barely dawn when I made my way to Warorot. The streets seem unusually sombre and deserted.   ...

    I know I shouldn’t be baking with my tennis elbow. But how can I resist when I have these shiny, new madeleine pans.   K & I were just pottering around Daiso when we came across these cute little pans. I’ve been hunting for madeleine pans for the longest time and to finally spot...

    Hakka food at Seong Kee, PJ old town

    seong kee pork trotter vinegar

    I’ve never considered myself much of a pork-eater until I switched job a few years ago. In my current workplace, non-halal dishes are only available a long drive away, which is logistically challenging if you’re on a one-hour lunch break. To make up for ‘lost time’, my dinners and weekends would usually consist of...
