Salad Atelier@The Starling

I got tired of eating noodles, meatballs, fishballs and fish head. Hah! So it's time for a change of noms. Yes, I have been on carbo freefall lately and I am now a hefty 10 lbs heavier. Who cares.

Balls For Lunch

Meatballs. Or in this case Bursting Meatballs. I went back to Go Noodle House for the Pan Mee in Superior Soup. And I added a portion of the so called Bursting Meatballs.

Kerutub Daging Terengganu

While digging into my freezer, I discovered two packets of beef that I bought quite a while back. I really need to clear up some space!

Korean Again

After my less that satisfying Dolsot Bibimbap, I decided to revisit Han Woo Ri@Damansara Uptown (which I visited with my partner a few times). That was where I tasted my first ever bibimbap and liked it.

Zucchini and Corn Fritters

I love fritters. Do you? The first fritters I ate was my late grandma's cucur udang (which she calls "genang udang") and subsequently I forgot all about fritters until an aunt's Indonesian maid served freshly fried vegetable fritters during a visit some years ago.

Ranch Dressing

So I made some fried chicken nuggets. Unhealthy, right? So I made a plate of salad. They should cancel each other out. Hah!

Fish Head Noodles

I never really appreciated fish head until I had the fish head noodles at Mr Fish. Sure they are hard to tackle especially when you are eating out.

I Love Meatballs

These Mutton Meatballs have seen sitting in my draft folder for a few weeks already. And I can't remember the recipe😝

Cauliflower + Pumpkin

Are cauliflower and pumpkin good friends? I know potatoes and cauliflower are in Aloo Gobi (which I love) and let's just say, pumpkin is a new friend.

My Very Fattening Weekend

Last weekend, my brother and I set out on another of our quests to find good ramen. Yeah, we love ramen so much that we are game to try all the Japanese restaurants that  are reputed to serve good ramen. So what's with the pancakes?

Darling, Ho Chiak Boh?

This was what I cooked on an energetic Saturday. Nine days worth of food for my Mr Boh Ho Chiak heh..heh...

Go! Go! Noodles!

Lately, I have a thing for noodles. It started off with Mr Fish and then Menya Musashi. And now I have a new place to go to feed my noodle-mania.

Menya Musashi@Isetan Eat Paradise

OK. I did not have a good experience when I came here with my brother. But I had to come back. Why? I know some of you may think I am silly.

Banana Gula Melaka Cotton Cake

After baking Pandan Cotton Cake, I had 120ml of coconut milk left. I did not have any other use for the coconut milk and not wanting it to go to waste, I baked another cake.

Does This Look Lazy?

It was Sunday. And I was determined to have a fuss free Sunday. A Sunday where I could just relax and not get stressed up with cooking and washing up. Was it possible?

Friday, 7 April 2017

Pandan Cotton Cake

If feels like it's been ages since I baked. But I seem to be gaining momentum lately and my baking mojo is back. But I am not keen to try new recipes, preferring to revisit old ones.

Not Enough Is It?

I liked the Char Siew Egg Foo Yong Rice so much that I went back for more. When my food was served, I noticed something.

Nutella Swirl Banana Chiffon Cake

It's been a while since I baked a chiffon cake. Was I out of practice? Will I get it right? Usually when I haven't baked or cooked something for some time, I lose touch and the result is less than satisfactory.

Happy Birthday!

It was my brother's birthday and we had a mini bash at Nam Heong@The Starling. I was here with my auntie previously and this time, I was definitely in a more relaxed mood.

My Turkish Pizza Went To Hell

Last week, I was thinking of the Turkish Pide I made last year. That's it! That would be my weekend project.

Zombie Soup

My brother and I love ramen. If you remember, we went on a quest for ramen here and here. Now what's with the Zombie Soup? I'll get to that in a bit.

Hainanese Or Lebanese?

When it comes to chicken rice, Hainanese Chicken Rice immediately pops into my head. So I was very amused to see this Lebanese Chicken Rice, a one pot meal which is delicious and full of aromatic spices.

This Has Got To Stop

I walked past Maybank just the other day and caught my silhouette on the sliding door. Gosh, I looked like a barrel (a small one lah).

The Ugly Taiwanese

Hah! See that up there? No no. That is not another one of my epic Japanese Cheesecakes. 

Monday, 27 March 2017

Boh Ho Chiak!

In Hokkien, "boh ho chiak" means "not nice to eat" (tak sedap). I was confronted with that statement at dinner time when my partner scrunched up his face after tasting the main dish I cooked. 

Friday, 24 March 2017

You Are Bored, Right?

Of course you are. I am writing about mundane stuff. No killer cakes. No Terengganu cooking. No baking disasters.

Not Worth It

Same old story. The Wednesday Special. I went for meal number 2. Sweet and sour meat pattie rice set.

Wednesday, 22 March 2017

Sorry, Kitchen Tutup

Apologies. No cooking posts. Everyday I makan kat kedai, OK? I have been feeling a bit depressed because of the piles of work and deadlines I have to beat. So what is the best medicine?

Tuesday, 21 March 2017

She's Back!

My auntie lah, who else? So in the midst of a very hectic work morning, I met up with her.

Monday, 20 March 2017

Mr Fish

It was yet another evening when my partner had to work late. So he was confronted with Madam Grumpy Face. I dislike reaching home late and he knew exactly what to do.

My Favorite BBQ Spice Rub

This BBQ spice rub is excellent for chicken or any meat. In fact I have also used it to season fried arrowhead chips and it made the chips so tasty.

My Two Day Rendang Tok

Who takes two days to cook rendang? heh..heh... Day one to simmer the meat until tender and day two to stir it until dry. That's me 😜

Wednesday, 15 March 2017

Ah Cheng Ah!

Ah Cheng Laksa has been around for ages but I have never been. One evening my partner had to work late. He knew I would not be pleased because this auntie likes to go home early.

Magic or Physics?

When I was in upper secondary school, I was in a perpetual coma during physics. I just didn't get it. Inertia, momentum, potential energy and all those complicated formulas were lost upon me. I hated physics.

Who? Me? Leng Looi?

One day as I was making my way to The Embassy@The Starling, I heard a voice caling out "Leng looi! Leng looi!" Of course I ignored it. I mean. Me. leng looi. It couldn't be.

BBQ Chicken Wings

Last year I made Barbecue Sauce and stashed quite a bit in the freezer. The containers were taking up space. Besides, I did not want to freeze the sauce for too long because that might affect the quality.

My Happy Meal

A good meal can lighten my mood. Lately, I need cheering up. It can get depressing at work and I wish I could retire tomorrow hah..hah..

Wednesday, 8 March 2017

Jamaican Beef Pilaf

When I saw this recipe, I simply had to try it. Beef, rice, butter, spices, ah! What? Beef again? heh..heh..heh...

Tuesday, 7 March 2017

Rakuzen@The Starling

I made my way to Rakuzen. Finally. It was a threesome of me, my partner and my brother. This time my brother was buying.

Gulai Ayam Terengganu (Terengganu Chicken Curry)

Something from good old Terengganu, my beloved home state. I don't know why one weekend I just had this craving for Terengganu style curry. 

Friday, 3 March 2017

Roasted Yogurt Chicken

Did I hear someone say "bleagh!!!"? I know that some of you do not like yogurt. Admittedly, I am also not partial to yogurt. I mean plain yogurt. It is sour and the smell is not pleasant.

Thursday, 2 March 2017

High Class Makan Again

Remember I said that we won't be back here so soon? Hah! We came back, this time with my brother in tow. It was my partner's idea and hey, if he's buying, why not eh?

Chicken Rice Blues

A new chicken rice shop opened in Damansara Uptown. Yay! So what did I do?

Monday, 27 February 2017

Spicy Sweet and Sour Fish

I heard someone say that fish is brain food. Apparently it can boost your memory. I do wish that I had eaten more fish in my younger days.

Thai Style Beef Salad

The other day when I made my way to a new Thai eatery, Thai Beef Salad was on the menu. I did not order it because I reckon for the price charged, I might not get enough beef and that would leave me unsatisfied (how presumptuous).

Limes From My Garden

It was always my dream to have fresh limes that I could harvest from my garden. Limes that I could safely eat whole, skin and all, without harming myself with pesticides.

Red Hot Mee Goreng Pedas!

Last month I attended a seminar. During tea break at around 10:00 a.m. refreshments were served. As I noticed all these years, the food served during tea breaks are predominantly carbohydrates. Of course, right?

Monday, 20 February 2017

Mr Tuk Tuk@The Starling

You know I love Thai food, right? So when I saw Mr Tuk Tuk@The Starling, I was quite excited.
