    Where food is concerned, innards are not really my thing. But I would make an exception for Petaling Street – Sei Ngan Chai’s ngap keok pau (a delicacy comprising a slice of pork, a slice of liver and a duck’s foot around which intestine is wrapped to form a parcel). Still priced at RM1.50,...

    Flaky, crumbly crust with creamy, fragrant kaya filling…need I say more? Sin Eng Heong’s kaya puff – hot off the oven. These handmade goodies are very popular.

      Pan mee (板麺) has always been one of my comfort food. When we came across House of Ceggo, a cafe specializing in pan mee, I knew I had to try. Normally I would go for the authentic pan mee with clear broth. With the extensive pan mee menu at House of Ceggo, I couldn’t resist trying...

    These are the juiciest grapes I ever had.   I was just browsing around in a supermarket in Tokyo. For some reason, I couldn’t resist buying these. I’m not really into grapes, but was surprised by how incredibly sweet and juicy they were. It’s great to just follow your heart, or in this case – your...

    mulberry3

    I didn’t know mulberries can be grown in tropical climate until my aunt offered me some from her garden. Feeling inspired, we got some mulberry plants for our little potted garden. They grew and grew but still no sign of fruits. I have almost given up hope. Then, little mulberries started appearing. Finally, after months of...

    When I saw the words ‘Full day ATV adventure’ on my Chiang Mai itinerary, my immediate response to Teddy, my travel buddy, was “I am not joining you guys“. I’m never an outdoor person. To me, the idea of a full day out in the sun is sheer punishment. Teddy, ever so persuasive, somehow...

    jonker88-durian chendol2

      I have fond memories of cendol. As a kid, Mum would reward me with this delightful dessert whenever I’m well-behaved. A bowl of cendol never fail to bring back those childhood memories.    Whenever I’m back in Melaka, I’ll stop by Jonker 88 for their durian chendol. I love the thick, syrupy gula melaka and pungent durian...

    9888-stewed pork tendon

    Smack towards the end of an obscure road near PGRM Cheras, I would never have thought such good food exist here had it not been a wrong turn. Their signature dish is the stewed pig tendon. The tendon is extremely tender. I usually ask for extra rice just to go with the flavorful gravy....
