A Meetup@Wood & Steel Damansara Uptown (CLOSED)

It was back to work after the long Christmas weekend. Bah! How I wish I could take a few more days off. But hey, this weekend is another long weekend. Yay!

Thursday 29 December 2016


It has been ages since my partner and I visited Dragon-i. It is not my favorite place for Chinese food because I find the food too mild for my taste. What? Am I that fussy? hee..hee..

Cookie Brownies

This I would say this is the Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bar equivalent for a brownie. It's amazing the variety of brownies I found while blogstalking. My latest discovery is A Pinch of Yum and I go there and oogle at the beautiful food photography. And then I get hungry.

Gluten-Free Oven Fried Chicken

Quite a while back, I watched an episode of Hemsley & Hemsley : Healthy & Delicious where the Hemsley girls made oven fried chicken. What's interesting about their oven fried chicken (called Pablo's Chicken after the boyfriend of a cousin) is that the chicken is coated with ground almonds instead of flour.

Another Wedding

Low Carbing At That Freakshake Place

Update : Patissez@Damansara Uptown has closed down.

Ignore that photo. That's obviously not low carb food. But is it possible to low carb at Patissez@Damansara Uptown? A place where the Freakshakes will shake your resolve? Well, let me show you.

Beef Ragu with Spaghetti

I love pasta. Spaghetti, fettuccini, macaroni, whatever. My first ever spaghetti experience was my mum's spaghetti with meat sauce which I attempted here.

Chicken Nuggets

Yes, I have made this before but I did not put up a recipe because it was kind of experimental at the time. Since I loved it so much, I had to make it again.

Tuesday 20 December 2016


I found a capsicum plant in my garden. No, I did not intentionally plant it. It just grew out of the garden compost. Two flowers bloomed and it showed promise of supplying me with 2 capsicums.

BBQ Flavored Chips

I've been doing a spot of gardening during the weekends and was reminded of how gardening has brought such great joy to my life. As I was clearing the dried leaves outside my door, it felt like just recently that I was scrambling like mad to get the house cleaned up in time for Chinese New Year. Guess what?

Grandma's Garlic and Salt Chicken

This is probably the most dull and ordinary looking dish. After all it's just chicken, garlic and salt. I fried those whole cloves of garlic just to sex it up a bit. Hah!

Fried Stuffed Cencaru

I did mention before that I am hopeless with fish. If I want to eat fish, I eat out. I have cooked fish before but I don't do it often.

Mango Kerabu with Ikan Bilis

The other day, I looked at my garden in hopeless resignation. It was one big mess.

Can I Borrow Your Cat?

That's my brother's cat. Miki. I can't remember if it is male or female. I am so absent minded.

Mad Cooking 6 : Paella Bodo

It's been a while since I did some experiments with not so favorable results. Those cooking disasters or dishes that bombed will not be wasted and they make it to my Mad Cooking Hall of Fame. So welcome to my latest edition of Mad Cooking. Episode 6.

Acar Bendi (Ladies Finger Acar)

Do you like ladies fingers (okra)? I know that some people do not like it because it is slimy. But me? I have always loved ladies fingers. My mum and my grandma usually boil the ladies fingers and then we eat them with sambal belacan.

Roasted Chicken With Sausages and Vegetables

When I saw this dish on Food Wishes I was immediately attracted simply because the dish looked so pretty. What attracted me even more was the idea of including sausages, peppers and potatoes into the baking pan.

Pimp My Bowl

I notice that these days, meals in bowls are the in-thing. There's of course the new sensation, Poke Bowl and then there are many others that look so enticingly delicious.

Turtle Brownies

My camera died on me when I was ready to snap some pics of these brownies. The tell tale signs were there for some weeks already. The "replace battery" sign kept coming on even though the batteries were new.

Restoran Sam You

It was yet another Friday evening. Having gone to Sam Yu twice already, we decided to try the other one, Sam You

Grandma's Char Koay Teow

OK, I experimented again with grandma's recipe. This time I must say that I am 90% near the taste of grandma's fried koay teow

Asam Pedas Premier (CLOSED)

Every time I run my banking errands, this red signboard keeps catching my eye. Asam Pedas Premier. Somehow I never ventured over there to see what it was all about. After all, I am not that crazy over asam pedas.
