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...

Ageing is natural process that fascinates yet terrifies me a part of me enjoys the maturity that comes with growing older but I dont want my youth to succumb to time. But there are ways to delay signs of aging, which I feel has helped with mine over the last few years. 1. Fruit [] The...

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...

My Soft Snug Experience

Slimming pants aren’t something I look out for because my legs have always been on the smaller side, in proportion to my upper body. I’ve always had a thigh gap and that’s not entirely a good thing, trust me. Naturally, I had my reservations with Soft Snug’s Mint24 Hot Pants – what more can it...

Jibby Co, Empire Subang

As someone who takes food seriously, I tend to approach “Instagram-worthy” places with caution. That’s because not all that looks amazing on an Instagram feed translates the same way on the palate. More often than not, I’m right. Depending on your purpose of dining, you’ll either enjoy Jibby ...

Xfrens Restaurant, Subang Jaya

Subang Jaya has quite a bit of good food places which I enjoy discovering. One of them include Xfrens Restaurant in SS18 – a dining option that Jien recommended, after going there several times with his colleagues. It’s best to arrive before peak hours as that way, you don’t have to wait for a table...

Bangkok

It’s been close to 6 years since I last visited Bangkok and the city has changed quite a bit – better, in fact. Jien was there on a work assignment so I tagged along for a short retreat and also to pick up a few items for our office studio. We arrived late evening on [] The post Bangkok appeared...

Hing Kee Bak Kut Teh, Kepong

Im very open to recommendations from friends and fans, on what they think is the best of a particular cuisine or dish. These recommendations are what keeps me geared up and excited to explore the food possibilities out there. Plus, its good to have people do the thinking for you...

Chunciou Hot Pot, Old Klang Road

I absolutely love hot pot; it’s something I can eat almost every other day if Jien permits! Which is why I have a few hotpot buddies who would indulge with me whenever the craving hits. When Chunciou Hot Pot in Old Klang Road opened, I was excited. My friend Emily notified me about this “really...

Leadership

Throughout my career, I’ve worked with many types of leaders – some of them amazing, and some, not so great. Each of them were different in their management style and while (I’m sure) they meant well, not all management methods were suitable for a talent like myself. I’ve worked under unreasonable...

Ah Lye Curry Fish Head, Subang Jaya

Ah Lye Fish Head Curry in Subang Jaya has been around for years but it was only last year than I started going there for my curry fixes. The curry is one of the better ones I’ve eaten – thick, spicy and robust in flavour. Something many Chinese-style curries lack, in my opinion. A medium-sized []...

Wan Jia Restaurant, Kepong

Kepong isn’t a place I venture into often – it’s always been the usual suspects of roast duck and yong tau fu, which I’ve been patronising over the last few years. I recently visited Wan Jia Restaurant for dinner and found the food decent. Was there twice in the past month – one with a friend...

Kar Heong, SS14 Subang Jaya

Chicken rice happens to be one of my least favourite things to eat; I try to avoid this whenever possible except when Im in Ipoh, where steamed chicken reigns supreme. When Jien suggested chicken rice at Kar Heong in SS14 for lunch not too long ago, I wasnt keen. I thought to myself,...

My Toast Roast, SS2

Toast Roast holds plenty of memories for me; I first knew of them 6 years ago, when they started in a random shoplot in SS2. Since then, I’ve visited them numerous times for my char siew fix, bringing along with me friends and family who share the same love for char siew. The owners [] The...
