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.

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.

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.

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?

She's Back!

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

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 😜

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..

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...

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.

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.

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?
