Some Kind of Vegetable Dish

This vegetable dish I learnt from a blog that is no longer active. Some of you who read Malay blogs may know Queenie of Semalam Berlalu Esok Menanti. I am not putting a link to this blog because it is now basically a shell, all posts have been deleted.

Patissez@Damansara Uptown (CLOSED)

You know, it's very hard to go on a diet when there are so many nice makan places near my office. The latest to join the group of diet saboteurs (hah..hah..) is Patissez.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

I cooked this pasta for the first time about 3 years ago and cooked it again for a family gathering not long after. Since then, I have not cooked it again.

Nasi Kukus Lejen@Damansara Uptown (CLOSED)

"Monday onwards I will go back to low-carb diet". Who said that? Who? I don't know. I didn't hear a thing hee..hee..hee...

Sambal Tempeh

I know some people don't like tempeh. I also know that many others love it, just like me. When I was in the university, the operator of our hostel cafeteria used to serve tempeh every now and then.

The Ship@Damansara Uptown

It has been a long time since my partner and I visited The Ship@Damansara Uptown. The last time we were there (Christmas eve? Valentines? Can't quite remember), we were late and the restaurant was super crowded.

Smelly But Delish!

I was looking for something in the fridge and I noted that my fridge is overcrowded. So many bottles and containers of this and that taking up so much space. That made retrieving or looking for anything from the fridge rather cumbersome.

Kacang Pool (Spicy Fava Beans)

When I saw this recipe on Kak Noor's post, I was reminded that Kacang Pool was featured on the Malaysian Food Fest Johor blog event back in 2013. I meant to give the recipe a go but somehow I forgot all about it.

Lapor Weh!

Every now and then, some Chinese bloggers who blog in English will suddenly blog in Mandarin for reasons unknown. And I can't read a dang thing. So today, just for the fun of it, I am doing the same thing. Not in Mandarin of course, that's foreign to me. So.

DIY Nasi Campur

Last week I subsisted on nasi campur from the van hah..hah... I couldn't help it. I love Malay food. But...

The Next Best Thing

It was Friday night. Our date night. We have since stopped visiting my favorite place. I feel kind of sad. Not for me but for the restaurant. The last time we were there, I didn't enjoy the food. I guess it is tough to be consistent when the chef can't be there 100% of the time.

Grandma's Mee Goreng

I still remember during one family gathering, my brother told me "Yang ni boleh jual" (this one can sell) as he ate this mee goreng (fried noodles).

Nasi Goreng Petai (Stinky Bean Fried Rice)

I have a thing for petai (stink bean). And I complain that parmesan cheese is smelly. Hah!

When You Don't Have A Cat...

Sometimes I need non-food/cooking/baking posts as fillers to keep my blog alive. The only time I get some kitchen action is Saturday and/or Sunday and there is a limit to what I can do.

Mummy's Beef Curry

This is one curry which my brothers and I look forwards to when we return home to Terengganu. It is a curry reserved for special occasions like Chinese New Year.

Zebra Butter Cake, Not

Haiz..... Instead of nice zebra stripes, this cake came out with designs like what Picasso would have made if he baked. Bah! It was not easy to dollop the batter because it is not light like Japanese Cheesecake batter.

Nasi Campur Nyum Nyum!

I was walking out to pickup a loaf of bread when I noticed a van selling nasi campur. Yay!!

BBQ Sauce Fried Chicken

I opened the freezer the other day and realized that I have three containers of my homemade BBQ sauce. Not only were these taking up space, they were also depriving me of containers.

My Garden Is Not A Buffet

I have been keeping a keen eye on my garden lately. Looking out for pesky critters which think that my garden is akin to The Lemon Garden Cafe of Shangri-la.

Robert's Penang Fried Kueh Teow@Damansara Kim

It was a hot Saturday afternoon (it's always hot anyway) and my partner suggested Curry Mee at Damansara Kim (at a coffee shop know as Restoran Golden Kim Wah). As far as he was concerned, this one is way superior to what he had at Annie-1

Chocolate Cheese Lava Cake

This cake has been a sensation and featured in many Malay blogs in recent times. The most arresting feature of this cake (before you actually dig in) is the name - Chocolate Cheese Lava Berhantu. The last word, berhantu, means haunted. How's that, eh?
