Christmas Mood@The Starling

Tis the season for brightly lit Christmas trees! When I was a kid I was always very fascinated with Christmas trees and the pretty baubles that hang on them.

TNB Screwed Up My Day

OK. Maybe it's not entirely their fault. I awoke in the dead of night (more like wee hours of morning) feeling warm and uncomfortable. My air-conditioner had stopped running and my room was dark and deathly quiet.

Crispy and Crunchy Fried Chicken

I was very naughty and I made some buttermilk fried chicken again. Why are you not surprised? And you ask, was the buttermilk fresh or expired?

My Auntie's Beauties

My auntie sent me more photos of her gorgeous roses. Wow. They took my breath away. Roses must be the most beautiful flowers that God created (in my humble opinion).

Critters in My Garden

Sometimes when I am in the garden, I get into National Geographic mode. When I see insects such as this dragonfly, I quickly make a run for my phone to snap a pic.

Dinner with the Parents

After our curry mee/wanton mee lunch, before we knew it, it was time for dinner. I thought it would be nice to revisit Simply Ribs. My brother and I enjoyed the food and I reckon my mum and dad would too.

Happy Christmas To Me! Kah! Kah! Kah!

In slightly more than a week's time it is Christmas and here I am ho.... ho..... hoing away! Behold my latest acquisition! Some people acquire companies, or shares or properties or even a husband/wife. But me? I acquire pots! Or more specifically, Dutch Ovens. Hah!

Christmas Roast Chicken : Episode 2

So how, can ah? To be honest with you, I find angmoh style roast chicken not very exciting in terms of flavor.

Monday 11 December 2017

Lazy To Cook

One week day, I was very hungry and there wasn't any cooked food in the fridge. I am one of those people who cannot bear the thought of cooking after work. I just can't do it.

Preview : Christmas Roast Chicken. Why So Pale, Ah?

My roast chicken do not turn out well all the time. Sometimes, they look like this one. Gordon Ramsay would yell "What in the bloody hell is that, Madam???!!!"

The Cat Still Doesn't Like Me

After our lunch at Annie-1, I took my parents for a short walkabout at The Starling. My brother and I had something planned in our heads. There was something we wanted. Something that is very bad for our waistline.

My Auntie's Roses

My Auntie recently sent me photos of her gorgeous roses. Gosh, they are really so lovely!

Ladies, Do You Like This Sort of Thing?

There is this shop at The Starling that I have been stalking since day one. Every now and then, I walk in to look-see-look-see and put some of the items on my wishlist in my head. Then I walk over to Daiso (just opposite) to see if I can spot something just as nice for RM5.90.

What?? Big Breakfast Again???

This is another outing with my parents. Initially we planned to visit 2nd Floor Kitchen & Bar@TTDI because I was so impressed after reading Kris' review. But alas, we could not get parking even after going a few rounds. So we gave up.

Not Quite Baked Ziti

I used to love the sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond. On the show, Raymond lives next door to his parents. To make him visit, his mother would lure him with her cooking, much to his wife Debra's annoyance.

Cheddar Biscuits So Good I Ate Eight

After messing up my first batch of Cheddar Biscuits, I was determined to perfect it. After all, I still had slightly more than a cup of buttermilk left in the fridge.

Madam, Your Char Koay Teow Very Nice!

It was another evening at Madam Kwan's. Yes, my partner and I have revisited a few times.

My Cheddar Biscuits Disaster

This is what Americans call biscuits. Why do you call this muffin-like thing biscuits? Over here in Malaysia, biscuits refer to crackers, those flat crunchy things.

Tuesday 21 November 2017

Family Mart

I never knew about Family Mart until I read about this Japanese convenience store from TM's blog. Fast forward a few months later I walked to my regular Cosway stockist only to discover that they have closed down.

Mocha Ice Cream : No Churning Required

No churn ice cream. It seemed too good to be true. I have heard about it, read about it, but I was not convinced. 

Friday 17 November 2017

I Miss Yu

This is me eating again. Even an errand to the bank  can give rise to an excuse to drop by somewhere to stuff my face. Walking past Yu Noodle House, I decided to revisit

My Hungry Stomach Strikes Again

Hungry! Hungry! Arrr...!! Arrr...!! Arrr....!! What's a big appetite to do when hunger calls? Go look for Big Breakfast of course. Tsk!

Cauliflower Nasi Goreng Kampung

Not even Nasi Goreng Kampung is spared the cauliflower treatment, eh? heh..heh..heh... Why not, right? It so happened that I spied some fresh cauliflower at Jaya Grocer and an idea entered my mind. Nasi goreng!

Korean BBQ

Another Korean restaurant opened in Damansara Uptown recently. So I went to do a survey and promptly alerted my brother and we invaded the outlet one Saturday for an early lunch.

Monday 13 November 2017


Confession. I made some more Loaded Potato Skins. I know, I know. I am out of control. When I like something, I want to eat it again.

Friday 10 November 2017

My Beefy Mee Goreng

Much as I love beef, I have never cooked it with noodles. I have had beef kway teow/beef noodles at the restaurant and I love it, but at home, nah...never tried.

Dating at Chilis Again

When we don't know where to go, we always end up at Chilis which is not a bad thing at all. True true, the food is not to my lahling's taste but he knows that I love Chilis. Ah, such sacrifice! hee..hee..hee...

Tuesday 7 November 2017

Stuffed and Loaded

The last time I made loaded potato skins was back in 2015. I looked back to my past postings and noted that I have made potato skins a total of 3 times.

Big Ass Big Breakfast

One Friday morning I was very hungry. VERY. When I am this hungry, my brain goes into overdrive and I want to eat something big and fulfilling. And that has got to be a Big Breakfast.

Spitalfield's Gastrobar@Atria

This was a recent outing with my brother when he gave me a ride to and from my office when my regular Grabcar, I mean, my partner was out of town hah...hah...

Korean Honey Butter Chicken

Every time I hear of any place that sells Korean style fried chicken, I get very excited. But guess what? I have never been to any of these places to eat the fried chicken.

Roasted Broccoli and Tomato Salad

Last weekend when I put on my "slim" pants, I was quite alarmed that it was very tight at the waist. Same thing with the thigh, there was much less room than before. Losing weight is relatively easy but it is maintenance that is the killer.

When I Am Bored, I Eat

Sometimes in the office, I get that blah feeling. I know I am burnt out and I want to retire. Perhaps some day I will. So what do I do?

Sunday 29 October 2017

Honey Spiced Chicken Wings

Remember the Rempah Gulai Cap Bunga Rose that my mum got me? After cooking the chicken curry, I had some rempah gulai leftover which I kept in the fridge.

Spaghetti Aglio Olio with Luncheon Meat

Can, ah? Use luncheon meat to make spaghetti aglio olio? Of course, can. Just google and you will see lots of people doing this way ahead of me.

Wednesday 25 October 2017

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I baked these not because I think they are healthier than regular fries. It was just a case of curiosity. So are they crispy? Are they yummy ? Are they better than french fries? No, yes and maybe.

Burnt Cheesecake

You might have thought, oh no! PH had another cheesecake disaster! Actually this cake is meant to be burnt. Cool, right?

An Evening at Madam Kwan's

I have heard so much about Madam Kwan's, passed by it countless times during my visits to 1-Utama and only now have I had the chance to visit.

Ayam Goreng Berempah

Excuse me, Korean Fried Chicken. Could you please step aside for our Malaysian spicy and aromatic fried chicken? Introducing Ayam Goreng Berempah, a dish which actually needs no introduction.

Friday 20 October 2017

Shop Shop Eat Eat

Ah...the taste of freedom! This is what retirement must be like. I have had a few glorious days away from the office and it feels GREAT!!! Nope, I don't miss my work at allšŸ˜Ž

Oven "Fried" Buttermilk Chicken

If this sounds familiar, you have seen it here before and I am just repeating a recipe heh... heh... I was at home the other day and I had some leftover expired buttermilk (13 days expired). Haiks! Again!

Hello. To my Hindu friends, here's wishing all of you a very Happy Deepavali. May you have a blessed celebration with your family and friends. And here I am. Bonkers. Again.

Coffee + Chocolate = Mocha Muffins

I am a little slow to catch on to this Mocha business. I have heard the term many times before and to me it was just some kind of coffee.

Grub By Ahong & Friends

Who is Ahong? Is he famous? Well, if he isn't, he will be. I got to know about Ahong from R.A.G.E. Food Fight back in 2015.

Blueberry Muffins

These are the most expensive muffins I have baked. The blueberries alone cost me more than RM30 but it was worth every cent. Where else can I find delicious blueberry muffins that are packed with juicy blueberries?

Birthday Dinner

My partner organized a birthday dinner for me on our date night and a few very close family members joined us. We went to S.Wine@Tropicana City Mall (non-halal).

Corned Beef Cakes

Time flies doesn't it? It is now October and before you know it, 2017 will come to an end. This is the time of year for me to perform a stock check to see if I have any foodstuff that will expire soon.

My efforts finally paid off. My yellow Hibiscus finally revived and gifted me with a single bloom.

Cauliflower Fried Rice

Nowadays, when I cook fried rice, I add grated cauliflower so that (1) I eat less rice and (2) I still get to taste some real rice when I eat Cauliflower Fried Rice
