I Want to Eat! I Want to Eat!

I love eating. My favorite pastime is shoving food into my mouth especially when I am vegetating in front of the TV. Munch, munch, munch. Ah...perfect bliss...

You Call This Daging Dendeng?

Jangan ketawa! (Don't laugh). My Daging Dendeng is a disaster. More like daging ding dong.

I Could Eat This Everyday

Excuse me, yah? I have featured tempeh before and I am posting it again. I haven't had tempeh for a while and I simply had to have it again.

Restoran Sri Thai@Damansara Uptown

One evening, my brother and I had dinner at Restoran Sri Thai. Yup, he played Uber driver to his sister who had no transport that day hee..hee...

Sambal Brinjals

I know this bowl of Sambal Brinjals does not look legit. Sambal Brinjals are supposed to look all red and fiery and mine is yellow.

Do These Look Like Flowers?

Yeah, right. Ugly flowers. Sometimes, when I have lots of thing to do, I like to torture myself by cooking something simple, made difficult.

Stress Buster Cookies

I had a very bad week. I was asked by the senior partner to do something against my conscience and ethics.

Look What I Found In The Freezer

This here is my freezer. It's a standalone freezer. And it's full of stuff. Some of which I have no idea what they are. Once I even found a head. Yikes!

My Happy Meal in a Happy Bowl

Do you ever wonder what I do with the food I cook and post on the blog? Of course, obviously I eat the dishes.

Pa's Favorite Cake

You know, I never liked Butter Cake until I tasted this one. The very famous Mrs SK Ng Butter Cake. It is light, fluffy and buttery.

Wednesday, 7 June 2017

Where Are The Mushrooms?

I went to my favorite place at The Starling for lunch the other day. I did not want to eat anything stodgy like pasta or rice or potatoes. So I stuck to the salad section.

Tuesday, 6 June 2017

Lungs Anyone?

Does this look hideous? It's lungs. Beef lungs. One of my favorite dishes to pick at the the nasi campur stall.

Monday, 5 June 2017

Soft, Chewy and Addictive

I cannot believe that I actually enjoyed these soft and chewy cookies. In the past, I would have turned my nose up at them and declared them "lau hong" (stale). 

Friday, 2 June 2017

Dry Laksa. Nice or Not?

After my first visit to Laksamaana, I had to return for the Dry Spicy Laksa. Just to satisfy my curiosity lah.

Thursday, 1 June 2017

Blueberry and Lemon Cupcakes

What? Are blueberries on sale again? Well, the last time I bought them for RM9.90 and then the price reduced to RM8.90. So how could I resist?

Wednesday, 31 May 2017

Sambal Potato Wedges (Sambal Goreng Kentang)

I love potatoes. If I had my way, I would eat them everyday. But alas I cannot. I cannot eat too many carbs lest I grow even bigger. Gaarrgh.... carbs, why do you make me fat?

Tuesday, 30 May 2017

Sinfully Triple-X

When was the last time I ate chocolate cake? I really cannot remember. Now suddenly, I want chocolate cake. Bah! I shouldn't have thought about it. 

Monday, 29 May 2017

Sambal Gesek? Sambal Lonte? Sambal Totok?

I saw a post on ready made Sambal Totok and I was curious as to what sort of sambal it was. So I did a search. 

Friday, 26 May 2017

Laksa Mana?

A new laksa joint opened in Damansara Uptown. It that a yay! or what? Of course I was delighted. I love laksa but unfortunately Terengganu Laksa is not in the menu heh..heh..

The Other Kewpie Dressing

I know. Everybody loves the Kewpie Roasted Sesame Dressing. So do I. I love it so much that I ignore the other variants of Kewpie dressing.

Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

My mum has been asking me to bake a Carrot Cake. She loves carrot cake, the one baked by a family friend (which I have not had a chance to taste).

Tuesday, 23 May 2017

Ayam Kicap (Soya Sauce Chicken)

What to cook? What to cook? Sometimes that happens even though I have almost 100 cookbooks and printed 5 folders of recipes from my fellow bloggers. Hah!

Monday, 22 May 2017

Lemon Blueberry Bars

I have been stalking the fruit section at Jaya Grocer for cheap blueberries. I love blueberries and I do wish that they were more affordable. Can blueberries be grown in Malaysia? After all, we have grown strawberries in Cameron Highlands. Surely, we can do the same with blueberries? No?

I Got No Talent

Every time I watch a talent competition, how I wish I was talented like the contestants. How I wish I had a singing voice, how I wish I could dance ever so gracefully across the floor.

Cute Garden Critters

Once in a while, I come across nice insects in the garden. They are a delight to find unlike those pesky snails and slugs.

A Delicious Salad

After having dinner at Red Kettle with my partner, I returned for lunch on my own. Well, after eating noodles and more noodles at Mr Fish and Go Noodles, I put on a lot of weight 😔 Yah, serves me right.

Tuesday, 16 May 2017


I read from Toby's blog how easy it is to plant celery. So that's what I did. I love celery and I reckon I should have some in my garden.

Salted Egg Potato Chips

I was taking a stroll at The Starling when I noticed some sort of bazaar at the centercourt. There were stalls selling costume jewellery, clothing, artifacts and of course, snacks. So you know which stall I gravitated to.

Salted Egg Potato Chips. How irresistible is that? One canister was selling at RM18.00. If you buy two, you pay RM34.00. Yes, that is pricey but I know why it is pricey. It's mostly for the labor cost. 

I have a weakness for potato chips, in fact any kind of chips. So I bought one. 

OK, I bought two. How can one canister be enough? There was no expiry date on the canisters and I asked the lady how long these will keep (which is actually an irrelevant question).

Auntie Goes To The Movies

Hee..hee..hee... It has been ages. Ages since I stepped into the cinema. And how convenient that MBO Cinemas is at The Starling. Yay!

Thursday, 11 May 2017

Non-Spicy Fried Noodles

Or also known as mee goreng with no kick. Much as I love very pedas (hot and spicy) fried noodles, I have to consider my partner's preference.

Wednesday, 10 May 2017

Cream Cheese Brownies

I baked these Cream Cheese Brownies quite a while back and somehow I could not write the post. My mind was like, blank. Kosong. I had nothing to say. I was so uninspired.

My Fiery Sambal Fried Koay Teow

Among the three types of noodles, meehoon, koay teow and mee, I would have to say that koay teow is my favorite.

Friday, 5 May 2017

My Backside?

I needed a kitchen timer because the one I had was busted. I think I twisted it too hard. This time I wanted something that did not need twisting. Something digital would be good.

Red Kettle

One fine day, I spotted a new eatery at The Starling. It is called Red Kettle and I walked over to check the menu. I liked what I saw.

My Quiet Phad Thai Lunch

People, I did not cook anything special or bake last weekend. So you will have to bear with my eating out "adventures". So. I was walking back after an errand when I passed by Superthai, which I have not visited in a while.

Tuesday, 2 May 2017

My Kitchen Horror Story

Yeah, this is about my diabolical steamed chicken. It happened at home a few years ago. I was alone and I had just put a whole chicken into the steamer.

Monday, 1 May 2017


Finally, I made it to Flingstones (non-halal) after reading about it on Kris' blog back in 2015. All in all, I counted three posts on Flingstones, so Kris must like this place very much (so it must be good!).

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.

Thursday, 27 April 2017

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!

Tuesday, 25 April 2017

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. 

Monday, 24 April 2017

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.

Friday, 21 April 2017

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!

Thursday, 20 April 2017

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. 

Wednesday, 19 April 2017

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😝

Tuesday, 18 April 2017

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.

Monday, 17 April 2017

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?

Friday, 14 April 2017

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.
