How I Make Bone Broth

I started making bone broth last year after I was spammed by a publisher (that's you Rodale!) via email. I never signed up on their mailing list but one day I received promotional material on Dr Kellyann's Bone Broth Diet. And heck, they don't even deliver to Malaysia.

Cheesecake Plain and Simple

Yup. I baked another cheesecake because I was still excited about baking small batch cheesecakes. This time, I made it simple. Fuss free.

Inche Kabin : Nonya Spiced Fried Chicken

Ah! I finally cooked Inche Kabin, a nonya recipe that I bookmarked for the longest time. I have eaten this fried chicken at a few restaurants and I must say that the experience was satisfactory until many weeks ago.

No More!

Just last week I commended this eatery for now accepting credit card payments where they previously set a minimum charge of RM50.00. Boy was I in for a disappointment when I kept my promise of visiting them more often.

Fried Bittergourd with Eggs

I can't remember when I developed a liking for bittergourd. What I do remember is the first time I was impressed with a bittergourd dish that I had at a restaurant.

Trying Something Different@Mr Tuk Tuk

This is another of many visits to one of my favorite restaurants, Mr Tuk Tuk@The Starling. It was on an evening a few months ago with my brother.

Easy Beef Stew

The other day while shopping at Jaya Grocer, I spied very fresh cuts of beef shin. This is the tough cut and is suitable for long stewing like for cooking rendang, beef curry or beef stew.

Date Nite@Restoran Yik Kee TTDI

One evening, my partner suggested that we go to a restaurant in Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) for our Friday dinner. We hardly venture to TTDI even though it is so near us.

Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake

Chocolate cake. Notoriously difficult to photograph. Especially on a gloomy day. It was a cloudy day when I baked or rather steamed this cake.

Small Breakfast

One weekend I went to the office without breakfast. That's because I still felt full from the previous evening's dinner. I thought I could last till lunch time.

Eggs Baked in Avocado

My love for avocado continues and this time I revisited something I attempted many years ago. That attempt was not so successful because part of the yolk overcooked. After that attempt, I did not bother trying again until recently.

Salted Egg Yolk Chicken

Another fridge cleaning dish. Yup, I had four salted duck eggs in the fridge which were meant for Salted Egg Yolk Cookies.

Vietamese Indulgence

My dream came true when Pho Vietz opened at The Starling. I love Vietnamese food and the only one close to me is Du Viet which I have stopped visiting for a while.

Devil On A Horseback

Devil on a Horseback. Like the name suggests, I immediately imagined a devil riding on a horse. That was years ago when I first came across this party food. Then I discovered that it is prunes wrapped in bacon. Prunes. Not my thing.

The Other Sam You

One Saturday evening, my partner and I were very hungry and we wanted a good meal at Sam You. Lo and behold, the restaurant was fully packed when we got there. There were no more small tables and we were turned away with apologies.

Small Batch Cheesecake

Every time I bake a cheesecake, usually an 8 inch cake, I get 12 slices of cake. Of course I can't eat all of them myself, so I give away the extras.

My Favorite Set Lunch@Chihiro Kushiyaki Izakaya

After visiting with my partner for dinner, I dropped by Chihiro@Damansara Uptown on my own. It so happened that I was passing by and one of the staff was stationed outside to promote the set lunch.

Sedapnya Or Cantiknya?

This restaurant should be renamed "Cantiknya". In terms of decor, it gets top marks. That's what caught my eye when Sedapnya@The Starling opened not too long ago.

Dinner For Four At Ah Tuan Ee's Place

It was a Friday evening and we had company. My partner was tasked with selecting the venue and as usual he looked to me. No, this time you choose, I told him. To be fair, right?

Monday, 21 May 2018

Chihiro Kushiyaki Izakaya@Damansara Uptown

I was not aware of this new eatery until my partner told me about it. The shop (same row as HSBC) used to be occupied by Umai-Ya and then Mikado. That's how volatile the restaurant business is at my area.

Shopping Again

Now, when was the last time I went on a shopping spree? Ah, that was back in January where I went looking for new pants and blouses.

Chili Bean Honey Roasted Chicken Thighs

I have a mission. To clean out my fridge of half used ingredients which are taking up space. Besides, these things get moldy after a while and it is really such a waste.

Wednesday, 16 May 2018

Ayam Penyet, My Feelings Pun Penyet

I have been eyeing this outlet, Ayam Penyet AP, every time I walk past when I visit 1 Utama. Usually that would be on a Friday evening when my partner and I go for our dinner date. I don't know if this place is popular but compared to the other surrounding food outlets, it does not seem as busy.

Omelette On A Stick?

I have been passing by Shin Tamagoyaki@The Starling since it first opened not too long ago. I went to have a look at the menu and learnt that they specialize in tamagoyaki which is Japanese style rolled omelette.

My DIY Smoothie Bowl

Remember when I attempted a smoothie bowl back in 2016? Yup, that was a disaster because my blender broke down resulting in a lumpy watery smoothie.

Korean Set Lunch : This Time Not So Happy

After having an epic lunch at Qing He Gu, I decided to return for another experience. Yes, I remember how seriously stuffed I was and this time I visited when I was ravenous.

PH Goes To The Polls (Updated)

Update : Malaysia has spoken. Loud and clear. I never imagined this was possible. But is was. I stayed up till 3:00 am and although the results were not 100% complete, it was clear where we were headed. And now, I am in need of some shut eye.

Where Is The Handsome Doctor?

To me the most handsome doctor on TV was Dr Kildare played by my most favorite leng chai (even though he is now very old), Richard Chamberlain. I still think he is very handsome.

Lunch With My Parents

On the day my parents arrived, my dad expressed his wish to eat fish and chips. That was an encouraging sign because my dad lost his appetite when he was unwell and as a result, he was very thin.

Tonight No Need to Eat Dinner

Today my brother is still unwell and could not pick me up from work. I felt apprehensive because it's not that easy to get a cab in the evening. Especially when it rains. But hey, it's Friday!

Jakun At McDonald's

I have not been to McDonald's for a very long time. The last time I had a McDonald's burger was some two months ago but even then, that was takeaway from a drive thru.

Sticky Honey Soy Chicken Wings

Finally I have material to publish today. Thank God for the Labor Day holiday. A day free for me to do stuff in the kitchen.

I Eat Free Again

Sorry for the lack of cooking/baking posts, ya? My parents are in town and my weekend schedule is kinda disrupted. I usually do my chores on Saturdays but now these are pushed to Sundays, hence I have no time to cook/bake.

I Finally Went To That Crab Place

I have always been curious about Crab Factory and Shell Out where your seafood is cooked and then poured onto the table. I am not a seafood fan, I am more of a chicken person but I wanted that experience at least once.

Never Trust A Healthy Burger

I was at a loss for what to eat and then I saw this banner. Healthy Dinosaur Burger. "Loaded With Flavour" it said. So why not?

Tuesday, 24 April 2018

My Free Smoothie Bowl

Well, it's not exactly free as in I sit down, eat and then leave. There is a catch of course. You have to purchase any product worth at least RM10.00, then you qualify for the Members Eat Free on Mondays and Thursdays.

Pasta and Vegetable Salad

Last weekend I made a Pasta Salad for my mum and my brother. Dad couldn't eat this because he was recovering from an upset tummy. So I made him a soup, something like this one but stripped down to only meatballs and  finely cubed carrots and potatoes.

How to Reheat Frozen Fritters (My Way)

You know how I love to chuck stuff into the freezer. Cookies, rice, curry, cakes, bacon, bread, you name it, I got it frozen.

Luncheon Meat Omelette

This is something that I enjoy a lot from my childhood days. Whenever I see those cans of luncheon meat at the pork shop, the first thing I think of is luncheon meat omelette.

When You Are Served Cold Food

So. OK, I caved in and gave myself a cheat meal. I was feeling fatigued and light headed which I believe was the effect of carb restriction. Besides I did make some progress, my pants fitted better. This calls for a small reward does it not?

Grilled Sausage Pasta with Chimichurri

This happened during my chimichurri-craze-phase. I had some chimichurri leftover in a bottle in the fridge and it had been there for a week. Before it got funky I thought it might be nice to toss some pasta with my favorite green sauce.

Pretty Critters

Sometimes my garden is graced by the presence of pretty butterflies. Oopps! I remember TM's creepy story and I now look at butterflies differently. Oh dear!

After So Many Years, I Still Freak Him Out

As usual on Friday evening, he will ask me "chiak hamik ?" (what shall we eat)? That's when I took the opportunity to take my partner to Robataya@1 Utama. Whether he likes it or not heh..heh...

Curry Flowers Don't Smell Like Curry

My curry plant flowered again recently. Up until now, I never bothered to smell the flowers, assuming that they would smell of curry.

Wednesday, 11 April 2018

My Favorite One Dish Meal

One of the easiest dishes to prepare. You've got meat and vegetables in one dish and all you need is a bowl of rice. But for me, I can eat this by itself, no rice required. 

Tuesday, 10 April 2018


This was on a day when I felt very heavy and bloated after many days of indulging on carb laden food. I couldn't face anymore of thisthis and this. So I decided to go for something light and wholesome (though with some carbs).

Monday, 9 April 2018

Goat Food Again

I have been grazing lately. Yeah, make like a goat. Eating vegetables, vegetables and more vegetables. Like eating grass. Just as well, I was born in the year of the goat.

Sopoong : A Revisit

One day (some weeks ago) I planned to go to Annie 1 for the Curry Chicken Rice Set. But guess what? It rained cats and dogs while I was inside The Starling. So I had to eat at the mall. That's when I remembered Mun's post of her makan outing with her friends at Sopoong@MyTown.

A Piggy Birthday Celebration

It was my brother's birthday last month and he wanted dinner at Morganfield's. The last time we were there was back in 2014 at The Curve.
