2018 Kitchen Disaster #1 : My Jelly Tak Jadi

Haiz........... It has been a while since I had any cake disasters. My last hari ini dalam sejarah was back in 2016. Come to think of it, 2016 was not a good year for me because I also had a drama minggu ini which happened just before Chinese New Year.

Fried Spiral Pasta

It was the evening of Christmas eve. I was at home and my partner was coming home for dinner. What to cook, eh? The easiest thing would be to toss a salad but he is not a salad man.

A Basin of Food

Who eats by the basins? heh...heh...heh.... That's actually my mixing bowl and I sometimes eat out of it. For salads because there is lots of room for tossing.

Fuel Bowl

Ever since my first visit to Mich'sology@Damansara Uptown, I have been back a few times. I enjoy their Fuel Bowl (poke bowl by another name) and coffee.

Pre-Christmas Dinner

Just before Christmas, I see Christmas trees everywhere, even at Yok Tho Hing, a place where I wouldn't expect to see one.

My Poke Bowl Fix

Update : Kahuna Poke has sadly closed down.

Now that I have a place to go for my poke bowl cravings, I have returned to Kahuna Poke@Damansara Uptown many times. One of the things I like is that Kahuna Poke offers the convenience of cashless payment in the form of Favepay.

Sunday 23 December 2018


We went back to Restoran Yok Tho Hing on another Saturday evening. The seating areas downstairs was full and we were ushered upstairs. Now I get to see what upstairs is like.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

Does anybody like brussel sprouts? I have read about them and seen them on the supermarket shelves but I never made any attempt to eat them. That was until one day at Salad Atelier when I picked brussel sprouts as one of my salad ingredients.

Ketagih Jeruk (Addicted to Pickles)

I know I have gone quite mad and I am addicted to marinated unripe mangoes to the point that I can eat them everyday. This can't be good as I am adding sugar and salt to these fruits.

Wednesday 19 December 2018

Mango Yogurt Cotton Cake

It has been a long while since I baked cotton cakes or ogura cakes. At one time, these cakes were the rage and were featured in many baking blogs.

Flowers from Hobbit Land : Part 1

Previously I shared my auntie's gorgeous roses and she has got more blooms to show. My auntie lives in Hobbit Land where the climate is lovely for roses and many beautiful flowers.

My Giant Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last Saturday I went to work. While waiting to have dinner with my partner, I took a stroll at the mall to kill time.

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. 

Thursday 13 December 2018

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!

Tuesday 11 December 2018

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.

Monday 10 December 2018

Best Banana Bread/Cake

According to Sally that is. I love bananas and I love banana cake/bread. I have tried many banana cake recipes like Sour Cream Banana CakeMarbled Banana Bundt Cake and another best in the form of My Best Banana Cake.

Friday 7 December 2018

Kahuna Poke@Damansara Uptown (Closed)

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!

Wednesday 5 December 2018

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. 

Tuesday 4 December 2018

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?

Wednesday 28 November 2018

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.

Tuesday 27 November 2018

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!! 

Friday 23 November 2018

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.

Wednesday 21 November 2018

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?

Thursday 15 November 2018

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.

Monday 12 November 2018

Back to Theori

Update : Theori Food has closed down.

True enough, last Friday my partner vetoed Goodness Greens and has struck off that eatery after two bad experiences

Friday 9 November 2018

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.

Thursday 8 November 2018

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. 

Wednesday 7 November 2018

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.

Monday 29 October 2018

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.

Friday 26 October 2018

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.
