How I Freeze My Cake

I love freezing stuff. From curries to cookies to cakes. Not everything can be frozen of course but those that can, I will freeze.

Orange and Date Cake

The original recipe is called Orange Date Bread but I have decided to go with "cake" since I creamed the butter and sugar. When I baked it the first time, it turned out very dry.

What's On Your Christmas Menu?

Christmas is coming in a couple of weeks. Everywhere at the shopping malls and eateries I see Christmas trees, big and small. But no, I have not been invited to any Christmas parties yet. Bah!

My Partner's Specialty : Chien Bak!

Oh yes, the man cooks. But not for me. Not yet anyway. Every once in a while, he will tell me about his chien bak. How good it is. A recipe he learnt from his late mum.

Kahuna Poke@Damansara Uptown

Guess what? I had another dream come true when I stumbled upon a newly opened poke bowl joint in Damansara Uptown. I already had lunch at my chap fan dream come true and was on my way back from sorting out some matters at Telekom when I spotted this.

What I Had For Dinner Last Sunday

I have been eating too many carbs lately. Yes. I had a sudden obsession with rice and ever since I revived my love of baking, I have been eating cakes. Bah!

Mini Blueberry Cheesecake in Tubs

I decided to have another go with cheesecake in containers so that I can eat some more I can come up with a recipe to share and for my future reference.

Jeruk Mangga Asam Boi Chili Garam

There is something that I am addicted to at the moment. It's mangoes marinated in asam boi (dried sour plums) and sprinkled with chili garam (chilies and salt). Here, let me show you what I am talking about.

Blueberry Orange Butter Cake

Whenever I see blueberries, whether they are on special offer or not, I would be tempted to buy. Most of the time these blueberries are not sweet. They are either sourish or bland.

The Good Guys

Every time I visit a law firm, I am confronted by this menu on the ground floor. Everything on the menu looked really good.

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

This is my third zucchini bake this month. It wasn't planned and came about because I had excess grated zucchini. If I was going to bake another zucchini bread, it might as well be one with chocolate, right?

A New Makan Place

This restaurant, Restoran Yok Tho Hing@Damansara Uptown, is not exactly new. It has been around for ages, just that my partner and I have never dined there before.

The Best Zucchini Bread

I bought two zucchinis the other day to cook. Or was it to make zucchini kerabu? But I changed my mind and the zucchinis remained in my fridge, taking up precious space.

Who Likes Sardines?

OK, confession time. When I was growing up, there was one thing that I disliked. It was canned sardines. Bleagh!!

Teow Chew Lor

This is another post that happened last year. It was one of those food experiences that did not get me excited to immediately write a post.

Blueberry Orange Zucchini Bread

I don't know how long this baking streak is going to last. This blog came about when I started baking as a therapy for depression. I think I must be a very happy camper now and as such no longer need to bake hah..hah.... 

Your Cake So Dry One!

But for some strange reason, I liked it. A lot. This is actually an Orange Date Bread. One of those quick breads which is not actually bread but a cake that is made simply by mixing the wet and dry ingredients together, like making muffins.

Cheesecake in a Jar

This cheesecake in a jar business was a result of a case of itchy butt. Do you know the meaning of itchy butt? In my family, it means a situation where you have nothing better to do and you decide to do something tedious.

An Expensive Lunch

There was a time when I was crazy about steaks. I think it was my brother's influence. When he was obsessing about ramen, so was I. 

Friday, 16 November 2018

Simple Stir Fried Broccoli with Button Mushrooms

This is a vegetable stir fry that I used to prepare early in the morning to complement my proteins. Frying vegetables in the wee hours of morning is not an ideal situation, yes?

A Meal in a Bowl

There is something so appealing about a bowl of food, don't you think? Or am I influenced by those meals served at swanky eateries that makes food served in a bowl so attractive.

Chiang Mai Avocados Anyone?

The other day at Jaya Grocer, I was looking for avocados. I love avocados! The Australian Haas avocados cost RM6.50 per fruit and once in a while I allow myself this indulgence.

Steak and Kale Salad

It was a public holiday a week ago and I was at home, free and easy. I had it all planned and I bought me a big bunch of kale. Yes. Kale. Again.

Taiwan Spicy Noodles

One afternoon, I was feeling hungry and made my way to A Foodies Nest@The Starling for an early dinner. I was wondering what to eat.

The Lonely Kiosk : COOOK

As you may notice, I hang out a lot at The Starling. More specifically at A Foodie's Nest@The Starling. I love to eat, that's why.

Kale Salad

What? Kale salad again? I can't help it, it my favorite salad at the moment, my new love so to speak.

Tuesday, 6 November 2018

Where is My Food?? Grrrr!!!

That was me two Fridays ago and my partner last Friday. We were at our my favorite dinner venue, Goodness Greens.

Monday, 5 November 2018


There is a new cafe in the neighborhood and I don't know how to pronounce its name. MICH'SOLOGY. MICH-SO-LOGY or MISHO-LOGY?

Friday, 2 November 2018

Make Ahead Salad

That would be a Marinated Salad, a salad that you can make ahead of time and store in the fridge.

Thursday, 1 November 2018


There's KFC and there's LFC. That's Lim's Fried Chicken (LFC)@A Foodie's Nest Starling and I heard from my sister-in-law that the fried chicken is good. So I had to try it.

I Love Sour Stuff : Jeruk Kedondong Asam Boi

One of my favorite snacks which I have not eaten in a long long time is pickled mangoes. Gosh, I love those! The best ones are made using a variety of mangoes which is know locally as "pauh".

Sarawak's Best Beef Noodles. Really??

I was taking a walk one day when I spotted this restaurant which occupied what used to be Pizza Craft.

My Noodles Week

I have been eating a lot of carbs. Loads! It looks like my low carb diet has been derailed and I have been enjoying stuffing my face with noodles for lunch the whole week.

A Vietnamese Dinner Date

After my lei cha lunch and because I am the boss of me, I went to the movies. After all it was a Friday. Time to chill out people!

An Unexpected Date At Boon's

A few Saturdays ago, after I dropped dad's stash of frozen porridge at my brother's house, I left with my partner with the intention of going home to clean my house. 

Wednesday, 24 October 2018

My New Favorite Vege

Every time I want to make a salad, I would usually buy the pre-washed lettuce/salad greens from the supermarket. After a while, those greens became sort of boring.

Battle of the Lei Cha

After having my first taste of Lei Cha at Judy's@A Foodie's Nest, I wanted to have it again. I was feeling guilty after having indulged in too much chee yok fun hee...hee...

Penne Goreng Pedas

I have lots of pasta in my pantry and I have been cooking them local style. They are quite versatile and as I understand it, the noodles used in Laksa Johor is spaghetti.

My Awesome Dhall Curry

Blowing my own trumpet again, eh? heh..heh....I finally cooked a nice dhall curry that I could share on this blog. In fact, this dhall curry was cooked half way the week before and completed last weekend. Why on earth did it take two days?

When I Want To Eat Healthy

Ever since stepping foot into Goodness Greens Cafe@TTDI, I am sort of hooked. I like the idea of eating healthy food which actually taste really good.

Wednesday, 17 October 2018

Pumpkin Rice

I remember cooking this one pot savory rice way back in 2014 after I was discharged from the hospital. It's one of my favorite dishes as it is not only easy to cook but really so delicious it makes for a very satisfying meal.

Tuesday, 16 October 2018

You Want Roast Chicken? Roast It Yourself

I am cutting back on carbs and that day, I did not prepare my lunch. Actually I did prepare four day's worth of lunch but it was so good that one evening I took one portion for dinner heh...heh....

Roasted Asparagus is Delicious

You know, I hardly have the chance to eat asparagus because it is so pricey. At the restaurant, forget it. At the supermarket, forget it. I can't even remember the last time I had asparagus. I know they are awesome stir fried with prawns or sambal belacan.

Friday, 12 October 2018

Rojak Cendol and More

For many Saturdays after dad was discharged from hospital, I have been having lunches with my parents and my brother at his house.

Egg Yolk Pie

Last month was mooncake season and every year my partner would take me to buy mooncakes. And every year I find choosing mooncakes as gifts to be a headachy affair.

Wednesday, 10 October 2018

Soups Up!

Sometimes when I buy vegetables to cook a dish, I end up with leftovers. I had leeks leftover from my partner's food prep, sweet potatoes from cooking dad's porridge, potatoes from a yet-to-be-baked Shepard's pie (hah!), pumpkin from cooking pumpkin rice and kale/cauliflower/chickpeas from a recent salad.

What We Eat on Sundays

For the past few weeks, my partner and I have been having our lunch (or rather, brunch) at Restoran 134@Taman Megah.

My Macam Macam Salad

It has been ages since I made myself a salad. I have been very naughty lately, eating out instead of prepping my own lunch. Tsk!
