Kedai Kopi Hong Hong, Tawau

Tawau food is said to be one of the tastiest in Sabah where fresh seafood is aplenty. It was during my first visit to this developing city that I tried the fish noodles at Kedai Kopi Hong Hong in Taman Megah Jaya. I didn’t know what to expect as I’ve never been to East Malaysia [] The post Kedai...

A Koh Lipe Retreat

Travel writer: Melissa Foo It’s a weekday afternoon and you wished you were sipping on a Pina colada overlooking the azure blue ocean whilst digging your toes into the sand – but instead, you’re squinting your eyes at the computer screen trying to make sense of workflows and processes. We may not...

Is There Such Thing As A Perfect Relationship?

“There’s no such thing as a perfect relationship”, I would often say to friends and fans who think Jien and I are “soulmates” and a “matchmade in heaven”. No relationship is a walk in the park and it takes effort to make things work – even more when you’re married. People would tell me how...

Chang Jiang White Coffee, Ipoh

Ipoh is one of my favourite towns to visit whenever I head up north – the white coffee is good and you get plenty of food if you know your way around. Chang Jiang White Coffee was a recommendation from one of my readers when I did an Instagram story about my regular white coffee [] The post Chang...

Green Lane Noodles, Cheras

Penang food is one of my favourite things to eat – from robustly flavoured curry noodles to something as simple as koay toew th’ng, I enjoy them all. It was at Green Lane Noodles in Cheras that I found hearty Penang favourites that tasted as close as one can get from the state itself. It [] The...

Thanying Restaurant, Bangkok

When I visited Bangkok for a very short trip (literally 36 hours!), Jien took me to Thanying Restaurant for a dinner date as he read that this is one of Bangkok’s best fine dining Thai restaurants. We made reservations to play safe as it’s hard to predict the FB scene in Bangkok. We actually lost...

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...
