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.

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 all😎

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!

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

Giving Kam Tui Another Chance

If I had a boyfriend by the name of Kam Tui, this would have made for an interesting story. But alas, this is no boyfriend but a nutty and slightly fruity mooncake hee..hee..hee..

Deja Vu

A noodle house just opened in Damansara Uptown. So I decided to check them out. Upon entering the premises, the lanterns and vats of wine reminded of another place.

My Favorite Roasted Chicken

Whenever I have no idea what to do with a bunch of chicken legs, I always turn to my favorite marinade. There's nothing like the freedom of not following a recipe and throwing in whatever sauces that you fancy.

Would You Pay RM258 for A Steak?

Last weekend I had a birthday bash with my brother. The two of us had been talking about eating Wagyu beef for a very long time.

Tasty Tuna Cakes

I found a can of tuna in the pantry. It was purchased quite some time ago and was meant for my partner's tuna sandwiches. But since he does not want to eat anymore canned tuna, I have to find a way to use it.

So Where is the Birthday Cake?

No fancy cakes for me, please. So. I bought myself a cake. Ah Mah Traditional Egg Sponge Cake to be exact.

Thursday, 28 September 2017

It's My Freakin Birthday!

So, I turned 50 recently. Fifty! 50! Lima puluh! Goh chap! Gawd... Is that old or what?

Japanese Cotton Sponge Cake

Obsessed. Or possessed? I baked this sponge cake three times last weekend. Yeah, like I had nothing better to do. Sometimes, I am overcome by a certain kind of madness.

One More Try

After tasting the Wanton Mee at Pudu Chan Fatt Wantan Mee and not liking it, I went back after reading about the Lion Head Meatballs and Chinese Sausage with Fried Egg on Kris' blog. I simply had to taste those two dishes.

BBQ Chicken Drumsticks

Quite some time ago, I found a Bobby Flay recipe for Asian Spice Rubbed Ribs with Pineapple Ginger BBQ Sauce. The BBQ sauce sounded very exotic, what with pineapple as an ingredient.

I'm a Chewy Cookie Convert

I used to wonder why do Americans (and other angmohs) love soft chewy cookies. All my life, I have always eaten crunchy cookies. Aren't cookies supposed to be  crunchy?

Simply Ribs!

While running errands one day, my brother discovered a new restaurant, Simply Ribs@Taman Tun Dr Ismail. Being a ribs lover, he visited one day and sent me a picture of his lunch.

Eggs with a Kick : Shakshuka!

The humble egg. Much maligned for its supposedly unhealthy cholesterol content. Bah! I never listened, never believed and ate 3 eggs a day to no ill effects.

Cheddar Cheese Loaf

For someone who has a love hate relationship with cheese, it's rather strange to find me baking a butter cake that contains cheese.

Juicy Spicy Thighs

This is the Spicy Chicken that I saw on Paul Hollywood's Bread. It was actually Spicy Shredded Chicken because it was shredded and eaten with tortilla. But after I took the chicken out of the oven, it seemed such a shame to shred them.

Oh My Garden!

My garden has been largely neglected but lately I have been taking time out on Sunday mornings to tend to my plants. It's a joy to step out of the house to see these cheery looking leaves.

Roasted Tomato Salsa

The other evening I was flipping channels on the TV. That was when I chanced upon Paul Hollywood's TV show, Bread. Any fans of Paul Hollywood here?

So Slimy So Geli....

After reading on Mun's post on Tororo Yamaimo, I became very curious. I did see this item on the menu at Mitsuyado Sei-Men when I visited earlier but I was not that adventurous to try this very unfamiliar thing.

Who Put Mojo in My Food?

Baking mojo! All of a sudden, I was inspired to bake. So last weekend I baked, baked, baked.

No Need to Cook!

With readily available food with such variety from the chap fan (mixed rice/nasi campur) stalls, there is no need to cook right? Right!

A Very Heavy Brunch

One morning my brother dropped by the office. It was only 10:30 am but the two of us went over to a new eatery at The Starling for a bite to eat.

I've Lost That Baking Feeling

Did you realize that I haven't baked for a while? Of course you did. After all, I started off as Phong Hong Bakes and then I realized I couldn't live up to that name and changed it to Phong Hong Bakes & Cooks.

Sarawak Laksa

After trying Kampua Mee at SRK Noodle House I dropped by again. That first Kampua Mee did not impress me but I wasn't going to let that first impression deter me from at least giving the well known East Malaysian noodle another chance.

Eating Kerabu While Being Spooked

Are you on holiday today? Thursday was Merdeka Day dan Friday was Hari Raya Haji. And the evening before Merdeka Day, our Prime Minister declared Monday (today) a public holiday due to Malaysia's exceptional achievement at the SEA Games. Sweet, eh?

My Scary Mysterious Visitors

This incident happened a few months ago. I was waiting for my brother to pick me up in the morning when I spotted something very strange on my kafir lime plant. It looked like a black mass of something.

Spare Parts Noodles

I discovered a noodle shop, Wan Xiang Noodles@Damansara Uptown, but never took the initiative to step inside. This shop is located along the shop houses where The Ship is. My brother also took notice of this eatery and after our dinner at The Ship, we walked in.

So Bloody. So Good.

One evening my brother surprised me with a suggestion for dinner. We already met up for lunch and a movie the previous weekend but I certainly do not mind having another makan session with him.

Sweet and Sour Pomfret

What? Fish again? Well, I had two pomfrets hibernating in the freezer. One became Ikan Goreng Sambal Lebur while its companion was turned into Sweet and Sour Fish.

Bingsu, Anyone?

I have always been curious about Bingsu, the Korean shaved ice dessert. I see pictures of it plastered in cafes and places that specialize in Bingsu and they do look pretty attractive.

Ikan Goreng Sambal Lebur (Fried Fish with Sambal Lebur)

After I did a post on Sambal Lebur, my mum whatsapp me asking for the recipe. You know you have arrived when your mum asks you for recipe and not the other way around wahahaha!!

Horror Movie Date

It was nearing the weekend and I wanted to watch a horror movie. Stress relief lah as I had to work that Saturday. I usually book my ticket a day or two earlier but for this movie I hesitated.

Monday, 21 August 2017

Nasi Goreng Sambal Belacan

Yay! Carb fest! hee..hee..hee... If I am going to have a cheat day with rice, it might as well be a nasi goreng and better still, not any nasi goreng but Nasi Goreng Sambal Belacan.

Friday, 18 August 2017

Cow Cow

After lunch the other day, I decided to walk around Damansara Uptown as a form of exercise. Hah! It was not a very hot day owing to the rain earlier.

Thursday, 17 August 2017

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

I am so determined not to just look at the photos in my cookbooks. So I made an effort to cook another recipe from it. Sweet and Sour Meatballs. Easy peasy, right?

Wednesday, 16 August 2017

Traditional Malay Curry

I am no authority on curries, Malay or otherwise. That's what it said on the packaging, Gulai Melayu Tradisional. So I took it as good and for the first time, tried a recipe printed on a spice packaging.

The Chap Fan Lady Freaked Out

Whenever I go and eat chap fan, the lady boss never speaks to me beyond telling me the price to pay. Not that she is snobbish or anything.

Monday, 14 August 2017

Sambal Lebur

I am always on the lookout for sambal recipes, especially the easy ones that require no exact measurements where you can simply chuck stuff, blend and then simply saute the whole lot in the wok.

A Minty Coleslaw

When my mum visited recently, she brought me two containers of Kemangi/Selasih seeds (from my dad's garden).

I Fell In Love

One morning I was greeted by these Adenium flower buds. And then I was greeted with more blooms. This is a good sign, no? Love is in the air! So who did I fall in love with?
