In my previous Tiramisu post, the photo was butt ugly. It was taken at 6:00am and it is very hard to photograph something brown. That was the frustration that I had when snapping pics of chocolate cakes. Until I discovered a particular spot in my house with natural light. That's where I shoot my photos now, even if it means ferrying my cakes upstairs and downstairs. LOL!

Sriracha Chicken Wings

So I guess we are all done with the Chinese New Year festivities. Or are we? For us Chinese the celebration ain't over yet until Chap Goh Meh (which falls on 5th March) but for me it is over and I'll be back to work tomorrow. Did you eat something good?

Pre-Chinese New Year Pig Out@El Cerdo

This outing last Sunday was a much anticipated pigging out session for my brother and I. And what better place to pig out than at a restaurant where oink oinks is the star of the show.

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Valentines's Day has come and gone. So how was your Valentine's Day? I know that some people spent it alone, nothing wrong with that. For some it was business as usual, taking care of the kids, laundry, cooking and whatnot.

Beef Soup

I love beef. In any form. Hamburgers, BBQ, steak, chili, curry, rendang, beef noodles, whatever. Mmm...I love my "gubak"! And another thing I love is a good robust beef soup. One with loads of vegetables and a good spice mix.

A Treat for Me Again

I have not been baking or cooking very much lately because I am putting in extra hours in the office on Saturdays. It is the best day to work and I am at my most productive. Besides Chinese New Year is coming and I am looking forwards to the long break. It is worth putting in the extra effort as the rewards are manifold. Imagine spending one whole week gardening! Yeah!

Frozen Cookies??

Chinese New Year is around the corner and this year, the cookie baking bug did not bite me. So I have not baked any festive cookies as the mood just didn't hit me. Maybe except for this one.

Lemon Chia Seed Cake

When I was in secondary school, I wanted to become a rock star. I used to listen to AC/DC, Kiss, Judas Priest and Def Leppard full blast on my walkman (a now extinct device?). The Sony walkman was a gift from my uncle and to this day I am forever grateful to him. As I listened to the guitar riffs, I imagined myself playing lead guitar on stage. LOL!

How To Prepare A Packed Lunch Without Going Bonkers

Preparing a packed lunch to work sounds like a rather daunting task. Unless if you are one of those very fortunate individuals who can reach home at 5:30pm and do your cooking in advance. Or sashay into the office at 10:00am. Not many of us have that luxury.
