Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

My mum has been asking me to bake a Carrot Cake. She loves carrot cake, the one baked by a family friend (which I have not had a chance to taste).

Ayam Kicap (Soya Sauce Chicken)

What to cook? What to cook? Sometimes that happens even though I have almost 100 cookbooks and printed 5 folders of recipes from my fellow bloggers. Hah!

Lemon Blueberry Bars

I have been stalking the fruit section at Jaya Grocer for cheap blueberries. I love blueberries and I do wish that they were more affordable. Can blueberries be grown in Malaysia? After all, we have grown strawberries in Cameron Highlands. Surely, we can do the same with blueberries? No?

I Got No Talent

Every time I watch a talent competition, how I wish I was talented like the contestants. How I wish I had a singing voice, how I wish I could dance ever so gracefully across the floor.

Cute Garden Critters

Once in a while, I come across nice insects in the garden. They are a delight to find unlike those pesky snails and slugs.

A Delicious Salad

After having dinner at Red Kettle with my partner, I returned for lunch on my own. Well, after eating noodles and more noodles at Mr Fish and Go Noodles, I put on a lot of weight 😔 Yah, serves me right.

I read from Toby's blog how easy it is to plant celery. So that's what I did. I love celery and I reckon I should have some in my garden.

Salted Egg Potato Chips

I was taking a stroll at The Starling when I noticed some sort of bazaar at the centercourt. There were stalls selling costume jewellery, clothing, artifacts and of course, snacks. So you know which stall I gravitated to.

Salted Egg Potato Chips. How irresistible is that? One canister was selling at RM18.00. If you buy two, you pay RM34.00. Yes, that is pricey but I know why it is pricey. It's mostly for the labor cost. 

I have a weakness for potato chips, in fact any kind of chips. So I bought one. 

OK, I bought two. How can one canister be enough? There was no expiry date on the canisters and I asked the lady how long these will keep (which is actually an irrelevant question).

Auntie Goes To The Movies

Hee..hee..hee... It has been ages. Ages since I stepped into the cinema. And how convenient that MBO Cinemas is at The Starling. Yay!

Non-Spicy Fried Noodles

Or also known as mee goreng with no kick. Much as I love very pedas (hot and spicy) fried noodles, I have to consider my partner's preference.

Wednesday, 10 May 2017

Cream Cheese Brownies

I baked these Cream Cheese Brownies quite a while back and somehow I could not write the post. My mind was like, blank. Kosong. I had nothing to say. I was so uninspired.

My Fiery Sambal Fried Koay Teow

Among the three types of noodles, meehoon, koay teow and mee, I would have to say that koay teow is my favorite.

My Backside?

I needed a kitchen timer because the one I had was busted. I think I twisted it too hard. This time I wanted something that did not need twisting. Something digital would be good.

Red Kettle

One fine day, I spotted a new eatery at The Starling. It is called Red Kettle and I walked over to check the menu. I liked what I saw.

My Quiet Phad Thai Lunch

People, I did not cook anything special or bake last weekend. So you will have to bear with my eating out "adventures". So. I was walking back after an errand when I passed by Superthai, which I have not visited in a while.

My Kitchen Horror Story

Yeah, this is about my diabolical steamed chicken. It happened at home a few years ago. I was alone and I had just put a whole chicken into the steamer.

Monday, 1 May 2017


Finally, I made it to Flingstones (non-halal) after reading about it on Kris' blog back in 2015. All in all, I counted three posts on Flingstones, so Kris must like this place very much (so it must be good!).

Salad Atelier@The Starling

I got tired of eating noodles, meatballs, fishballs and fish head. Hah! So it's time for a change of noms. Yes, I have been on carbo freefall lately and I am now a hefty 10 lbs heavier. Who cares.

Thursday, 27 April 2017

Balls For Lunch

Meatballs. Or in this case Bursting Meatballs. I went back to Go Noodle House for the Pan Mee in Superior Soup. And I added a portion of the so called Bursting Meatballs.

Kerutub Daging Terengganu

While digging into my freezer, I discovered two packets of beef that I bought quite a while back. I really need to clear up some space!

Korean Again

After my less that satisfying Dolsot Bibimbap, I decided to revisit Han Woo Ri@Damansara Uptown (which I visited with my partner a few times). That was where I tasted my first ever bibimbap and liked it.

Zucchini and Corn Fritters

I love fritters. Do you? The first fritters I ate was my late grandma's cucur udang (which she calls "genang udang") and subsequently I forgot all about fritters until an aunt's Indonesian maid served freshly fried vegetable fritters during a visit some years ago.

Friday, 21 April 2017

Ranch Dressing

So I made some fried chicken nuggets. Unhealthy, right? So I made a plate of salad. They should cancel each other out. Hah!

Fish Head Noodles

I never really appreciated fish head until I had the fish head noodles at Mr Fish. Sure they are hard to tackle especially when you are eating out. 

Wednesday, 19 April 2017

I Love Meatballs

These Mutton Meatballs have seen sitting in my draft folder for a few weeks already. And I can't remember the recipe😝

Tuesday, 18 April 2017

Cauliflower + Pumpkin

Are cauliflower and pumpkin good friends? I know potatoes and cauliflower are in Aloo Gobi (which I love) and let's just say, pumpkin is a new friend.

My Very Fattening Weekend

Last weekend, my brother and I set out on another of our quests to find good ramen. Yeah, we love ramen so much that we are game to try all the Japanese restaurants that  are reputed to serve good ramen. So what's with the pancakes?

Friday, 14 April 2017

Darling, Ho Chiak Boh?

This was what I cooked on an energetic Saturday. Nine days worth of food for my Mr Boh Ho Chiak heh..heh...

Thursday, 13 April 2017

Go! Go! Noodles!

Lately, I have a thing for noodles. It started off with Mr Fish and then Menya Musashi. And now I have a new place to go to feed my noodle-mania.

Wednesday, 12 April 2017

Menya Musashi@Isetan Eat Paradise

OK. I did not have a good experience when I came here with my brother. But I had to come back. Why? I know some of you may think I am silly.

Banana Gula Melaka Cotton Cake

After baking Pandan Cotton Cake, I had 120ml of coconut milk left. I did not have any other use for the coconut milk and not wanting it to go to waste, I baked another cake.

Does This Look Lazy?

It was Sunday. And I was determined to have a fuss free Sunday. A Sunday where I could just relax and not get stressed up with cooking and washing up. Was it possible?

Friday, 7 April 2017

Pandan Cotton Cake

If feels like it's been ages since I baked. But I seem to be gaining momentum lately and my baking mojo is back. But I am not keen to try new recipes, preferring to revisit old ones.

Not Enough Is It?

I liked the Char Siew Egg Foo Yong Rice so much that I went back for more. When my food was served, I noticed something.

Wednesday, 5 April 2017

Nutella Swirl Banana Chiffon Cake

It's been a while since I baked a chiffon cake. Was I out of practice? Will I get it right? Usually when I haven't baked or cooked something for some time, I lose touch and the result is less than satisfactory.

Tuesday, 4 April 2017

Happy Birthday!

It was my brother's birthday and we had a mini bash at Nam Heong@The Starling. I was here with my auntie previously and this time, I was definitely in a more relaxed mood.

My Turkish Pizza Went To Hell

Last week, I was thinking of the Turkish Pide I made last year. That's it! That would be my weekend project.

Zombie Soup

My brother and I love ramen. If you remember, we went on a quest for ramen here and here. Now what's with the Zombie Soup? I'll get to that in a bit.

Hainanese Or Lebanese?

When it comes to chicken rice, Hainanese Chicken Rice immediately pops into my head. So I was very amused to see this Lebanese Chicken Rice, a one pot meal which is delicious and full of aromatic spices.

This Has Got To Stop

I walked past Maybank just the other day and caught my silhouette on the sliding door. Gosh, I looked like a barrel (a small one lah).

Tuesday, 28 March 2017

The Ugly Taiwanese

Hah! See that up there? No no. That is not another one of my epic Japanese Cheesecakes. 

Monday, 27 March 2017

Boh Ho Chiak!

In Hokkien, "boh ho chiak" means "not nice to eat" (tak sedap). I was confronted with that statement at dinner time when my partner scrunched up his face after tasting the main dish I cooked. 

Friday, 24 March 2017

You Are Bored, Right?

Of course you are. I am writing about mundane stuff. No killer cakes. No Terengganu cooking. No baking disasters.

Thursday, 23 March 2017

Not Worth It

Same old story. The Wednesday Special. I went for meal number 2. Sweet and sour meat pattie rice set.

Wednesday, 22 March 2017

Sorry, Kitchen Tutup

Apologies. No cooking posts. Everyday I makan kat kedai, OK? I have been feeling a bit depressed because of the piles of work and deadlines I have to beat. So what is the best medicine?

Tuesday, 21 March 2017

She's Back!

My auntie lah, who else? So in the midst of a very hectic work morning, I met up with her.

Monday, 20 March 2017

Mr Fish

It was yet another evening when my partner had to work late. So he was confronted with Madam Grumpy Face. I dislike reaching home late and he knew exactly what to do.

My Favorite BBQ Spice Rub

This BBQ spice rub is excellent for chicken or any meat. In fact I have also used it to season fried arrowhead chips and it made the chips so tasty.

Thursday, 16 March 2017

My Two Day Rendang Tok

Who takes two days to cook rendang? heh..heh... Day one to simmer the meat until tender and day two to stir it until dry. That's me 😜

Wednesday, 15 March 2017

Ah Cheng Ah!

Ah Cheng Laksa has been around for ages but I have never been. One evening my partner had to work late. He knew I would not be pleased because this auntie likes to go home early.
