My Cheddar Biscuits Disaster


This is what Americans call biscuits. Why do you call this muffin-like thing biscuits? Over here in Malaysia, biscuits refer to crackers, those flat crunchy things.

Family Mart


I never knew about Family Mart until I read about this Japanese convenience store from TM's blog. Fast forward a few months later I walked to my regular Cosway stockist only to discover that they have closed down.

Mocha Ice Cream : No Churning Required


No churn ice cream. It seemed too good to be true. I have heard about it, read about it, but I was not convinced.

I Miss Yu


This is me eating again. Even an errand to the bank  can give rise to an excuse to drop by somewhere to stuff my face. Walking past Yu Noodle House, I decided to revisit

My Hungry Stomach Strikes Again


Hungry! Hungry! Arrr...!! Arrr...!! Arrr....!! What's a big appetite to do when hunger calls? Go look for Big Breakfast of course. Tsk!

Cauliflower Nasi Goreng Kampung


Not even Nasi Goreng Kampung is spared the cauliflower treatment, eh? heh..heh..heh... Why not, right? It so happened that I spied some fresh cauliflower at Jaya Grocer and an idea entered my mind. Nasi goreng!

Korean BBQ


Another Korean restaurant opened in Damansara Uptown recently. So I went to do a survey and promptly alerted my brother and we invaded the outlet one Saturday for an early lunch.

Bergedil


Confession. I made some more Loaded Potato Skins. I know, I know. I am out of control. When I like something, I want to eat it again.

My Beefy Mee Goreng


Much as I love beef, I have never cooked it with noodles. I have had beef kway teow/beef noodles at the restaurant and I love it, but at home, nah...never tried.

Dating at Chilis Again


When we don't know where to go, we always end up at Chilis which is not a bad thing at all. True true, the food is not to my lahling's taste but he knows that I love Chilis. Ah, such sacrifice! hee..hee..hee...

Stuffed and Loaded


The last time I made loaded potato skins was back in 2015. I looked back to my past postings and noted that I have made potato skins a total of 3 times.

Big Ass Big Breakfast


One Friday morning I was very hungry. VERY. When I am this hungry, my brain goes into overdrive and I want to eat something big and fulfilling. And that has got to be a Big Breakfast.

Spitalfield's Gastrobar@Atria


This was a recent outing with my brother when he gave me a ride to and from my office when my regular Grabcar, I mean, my partner was out of town hah...hah...

Korean Honey Butter Chicken


Every time I hear of any place that sells Korean style fried chicken, I get very excited. But guess what? I have never been to any of these places to eat the fried chicken.

Roasted Broccoli and Tomato Salad


Last weekend when I put on my "slim" pants, I was quite alarmed that it was very tight at the waist. Same thing with the thigh, there was much less room than before. Losing weight is relatively easy but it is maintenance that is the killer.

When I Am Bored, I Eat


Sometimes in the office, I get that blah feeling. I know I am burnt out and I want to retire. Perhaps some day I will. So what do I do?

Honey Spiced Chicken Wings


Remember the Rempah Gulai Cap Bunga Rose that my mum got me? After cooking the chicken curry, I had some rempah gulai leftover which I kept in the fridge.

Spaghetti Aglio Olio with Luncheon Meat


Can, ah? Use luncheon meat to make spaghetti aglio olio? Of course, can. Just google and you will see lots of people doing this way ahead of me.

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries


I baked these not because I think they are healthier than regular fries. It was just a case of curiosity. So are they crispy? Are they yummy ? Are they better than french fries? No, yes and maybe.

Burnt Cheesecake


You might have thought, oh no! PH had another cheesecake disaster! Actually this cake is meant to be burnt. Cool, right?

An Evening at Madam Kwan's


I have heard so much about Madam Kwan's, passed by it countless times during my visits to 1-Utama and only now have I had the chance to visit.

Ayam Goreng Berempah


Excuse me, Korean Fried Chicken. Could you please step aside for our Malaysian spicy and aromatic fried chicken? Introducing Ayam Goreng Berempah, a dish which actually needs no introduction.

Shop Shop Eat Eat


Ah...the taste of freedom! This is what retirement must be like. I have had a few glorious days away from the office and it feels GREAT!!! Nope, I don't miss my work at all😎

Oven "Fried" Buttermilk Chicken


If this sounds familiar, you have seen it here before and I am just repeating a recipe heh... heh... I was at home the other day and I had some leftover expired buttermilk (13 days expired). Haiks! Again!

Hello. To my Hindu friends, here's wishing all of you a very Happy Deepavali. May you have a blessed celebration with your family and friends. And here I am. Bonkers. Again.

Coffee + Chocolate = Mocha Muffins


I am a little slow to catch on to this Mocha business. I have heard the term many times before and to me it was just some kind of coffee.

Grub By Ahong & Friends


Who is Ahong? Is he famous? Well, if he isn't, he will be. I got to know about Ahong from R.A.G.E. Food Fight back in 2015.

Blueberry Muffins


These are the most expensive muffins I have baked. The blueberries alone cost me more than RM30 but it was worth every cent. Where else can I find delicious blueberry muffins that are packed with juicy blueberries?

Birthday Dinner


My partner organized a birthday dinner for me on our date night and a few very close family members joined us. We went to S.Wine@Tropicana City Mall (non-halal).

Corned Beef Cakes


Time flies doesn't it? It is now October and before you know it, 2017 will come to an end. This is the time of year for me to perform a stock check to see if I have any foodstuff that will expire soon.

Yellow


My efforts finally paid off. My yellow Hibiscus finally revived and gifted me with a single bloom.

Cauliflower Fried Rice


Nowadays, when I cook fried rice, I add grated cauliflower so that (1) I eat less rice and (2) I still get to taste some real rice when I eat Cauliflower Fried Rice

Giving Kam Tui Another Chance


If I had a boyfriend by the name of Kam Tui, this would have made for an interesting story. But alas, this is no boyfriend but a nutty and slightly fruity mooncake hee..hee..hee..

Deja Vu


A noodle house just opened in Damansara Uptown. So I decided to check them out. Upon entering the premises, the lanterns and vats of wine reminded of another place.

My Favorite Roasted Chicken


Whenever I have no idea what to do with a bunch of chicken legs, I always turn to my favorite marinade. There's nothing like the freedom of not following a recipe and throwing in whatever sauces that you fancy.

Would You Pay RM258 for A Steak?


Last weekend I had a birthday bash with my brother. The two of us had been talking about eating Wagyu beef for a very long time.

Tasty Tuna Cakes


I found a can of tuna in the pantry. It was purchased quite some time ago and was meant for my partner's tuna sandwiches. But since he does not want to eat anymore canned tuna, I have to find a way to use it.

So Where is the Birthday Cake?


No fancy cakes for me, please. So. I bought myself a cake. Ah Mah Traditional Egg Sponge Cake to be exact.

It's My Freakin Birthday!


So, I turned 50 recently. Fifty! 50! Lima puluh! Goh chap! Gawd... Is that old or what?

Japanese Cotton Sponge Cake


Obsessed. Or possessed? I baked this sponge cake three times last weekend. Yeah, like I had nothing better to do. Sometimes, I am overcome by a certain kind of madness.

One More Try


After tasting the Wanton Mee at Pudu Chan Fatt Wantan Mee and not liking it, I went back after reading about the Lion Head Meatballs and Chinese Sausage with Fried Egg on Kris' blog. I simply had to taste those two dishes.

BBQ Chicken Drumsticks


Quite some time ago, I found a Bobby Flay recipe for Asian Spice Rubbed Ribs with Pineapple Ginger BBQ Sauce. The BBQ sauce sounded very exotic, what with pineapple as an ingredient.

I'm a Chewy Cookie Convert


I used to wonder why do Americans (and other angmohs) love soft chewy cookies. All my life, I have always eaten crunchy cookies. Aren't cookies supposed to be  crunchy?

Simply Ribs!


While running errands one day, my brother discovered a new restaurant, Simply Ribs@Taman Tun Dr Ismail. Being a ribs lover, he visited one day and sent me a picture of his lunch.

Eggs with a Kick : Shakshuka!


The humble egg. Much maligned for its supposedly unhealthy cholesterol content. Bah! I never listened, never believed and ate 3 eggs a day to no ill effects.

Cheddar Cheese Loaf


For someone who has a love hate relationship with cheese, it's rather strange to find me baking a butter cake that contains cheese.

Juicy Spicy Thighs


This is the Spicy Chicken that I saw on Paul Hollywood's Bread. It was actually Spicy Shredded Chicken because it was shredded and eaten with tortilla. But after I took the chicken out of the oven, it seemed such a shame to shred them.

Oh My Garden!


My garden has been largely neglected but lately I have been taking time out on Sunday mornings to tend to my plants. It's a joy to step out of the house to see these cheery looking leaves.

Roasted Tomato Salsa


The other evening I was flipping channels on the TV. That was when I chanced upon Paul Hollywood's TV show, Bread. Any fans of Paul Hollywood here?

So Slimy So Geli....


After reading on Mun's post on Tororo Yamaimo, I became very curious. I did see this item on the menu at Mitsuyado Sei-Men when I visited earlier but I was not that adventurous to try this very unfamiliar thing.
