Birthday Dinner@Skippys Uptown


I had no transport for two days and my brother very kindly offered to give me a ride. How kind of him!

Honey Soy Salad Dressing


The other day I was sick. I had a sore throat, fever and I was coughing very badly. So I had to take two days off work.

Tapau 2


I have a confession to make. Even though I am disenchanted with chap fan, I went back to tapau again for the last 2 weeks.

Garlic and Salt Roasted Chicken


This is the most basic of roasted chicken with only 4 ingredients for the marinade. Easy and yet so tasty.

Of Tarts and Puffs


I can always count on my brother to torpedo my diet plans and I mean it in a good way (i.e. I have a good excuse to eat). Last Wednesday he came to my office to drop off some documents. I saw him carrying this red plastic bag with a box inside. I thought he bought himself a router. Until he took this out.

Chef Wan's Oxtail Soup


I have been eyeing this recipe for a long time because the picture in the cookbook and the ingredients tell me that this is a rather exotic oxtail soup.

Honey Soy Roasted Chicken With Vegetables


Last Saturday I marinated two chicken legs with soya sauce, honey and garlic. My intention was to roast the chicken and eat it with a salad. Then on Sunday morning I changed my mind. I am very prone to changing my mind.

Nutella Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars


Yes, folks. I am hopelessly addicted to cookie dough cheesecake bars. So I baked another one. With Nutella. This time I remembered not to add an egg into the cookie dough. Hah!

Ginger Fried Rice


Please excuse the messy presentation. This is how real food looks like in my house. Especially when I cannot wait to dig in.

Oh My Flowers!


For once my Adenium bloomed with such a red intensity. It must have been due to the fertilizer I added to the soil. I love flowers. Who doesn't, right? They are so pretty. There is one special flower in my garden that I have long waited for it to bloom. It finally did.

Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars


Wow. That is an understatement. OMG. That is also an understatement. When I stood by the kitchen sink and sank my teeth into my first ever Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bar, I was in Nirvana. If you haven't had one of these, you my friend, are missing out on something incredible.

A Wedding Dinner


Last weekend I was at a wedding dinner. Now that I have in my possession a smartphone, I am a fiend at dinners. This dinner was no different. I was at my worst behavior (forgetting relatives' names among others) hence the photos for this post.

Tapau


When I don't have enough time or am too lazy to pack my lunch to work, I eat chap fan. Yup, I tapau just like everybody else.
