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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 (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!

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.
