Another One Bites The Dust

The other day when I was doing my rounds at The Starling I noticed that a restaurant that I have visited before was closed.

An Unexpected Lunch At SS2

One Saturday, my brother took me to our optician to pick up my new spectacles. We went early because we expected the optician would take some time to adjust the spectacles and to test my eyes again to make sure everything was OK.

Bacon It

You know I love bacon. Anything that can be baconed, I bacon. Like pumpkin, healthy salads and even prunes. So when I read about Bacon It in The Star, of course I was interested.

Fujisawa Izakaya@A Foodie's Nest The Starling

I have been having my meals every now and then at the food court (A Foodie's Nest) at The Starling. So far I have only stuck to one side of the food court which is the one that houses my favorite chee yok fun heh...heh....

Broccoli Slaw

Finally I was brave enough to eat raw broccoli. Yeah, RAW. The trick is to cut it up really small to make it easier to eat. But still ..............

Don't Pang Sai In My Garden!

One fine morning I welcomed a visitor to my garden. Look, I have nothing against cats. Sure they are kind of aloof, but they can be really cute (and melt my heart). Like this one. But they often leave stuff in my garden which annoys me to no end.

Fried Macaroni

It's very useful to have some pasta lying around in the pantry because when you run out ideas, you can fry up a batch for lunch or dinner.

Spicy Crispy Chicken

It looks like I haven't been roasting any chicken yet this year, have I? heh..heh... Well, I did but I did not have the time to snap any pictures let alone write a post. You know, writing an eating out post is so much easier than writing a cooking post.

Brussel Sprouts with Lap Cheong

When I was a child I used to read story books and once in a while I would come across brussel sprouts being mentioned. I used to wonder what are brussel sprouts.

Ole Orale! : Orale@Damansara Uptown

As I have mentioned in an earlier post, there are many restaurants/cafes that have closed down in my area. And in their place many eateries have taken over the space vacated. Some sadly suffered the same fate while others prevailed.

Homemade Mayonnaise

Yup, you can make this stuff at home. I decided to try it after my unopened not yet past expiry date bottle of mayonnaise turned out spoiled. Bah!

Stop Dieting and Eat Your Carbs! : The Freedom to Eat (Reverse Dieting and Intermittent Fasting)

How cool is that? The freedom to eat nasi kerabu when I want. To eat wantan mee when I feel like it. Not having to abstain from certain foods at restaurants because they have carbs.

Penang Flavours Express@A Foodie's Nest The Starling

Eh? There is a new kiosk at the food court at The Starling. Penang Flavours Express. Now, when you see "Penang" be forewarned. Don't get too excited.

These Days I Eat Carbs : No More Dieting!

I am not such a low-carbo fanatic anymore. But I still watch my carbs. I eat in moderation. I have achieved my target weight and I don't want to restrict carbs for the rest of my life.

Flowers From Hobbit Land : Part 2

This is the remainder of the photos that my auntie shared with me. They are so lovely that I simply have to share them with you.

Tuesday, 5 March 2019


This was an early dinner for me. I visited Teppanyaki@The Starling previousy but I did not blog about it.

Broccoli Salad

I love broccoli and I always mess up the spelling. I can never remember - one "c" double "l" or double "c" and one "l" and sometimes I spell it with double "c" and double "l" and the spell check drives me nuts.

Char Mee

I love fried noodles. They are tasty and easy to cook. When I run out of ideas what to feed my partner, I cook fried noodles hee...hee...

Beard Brothers at Home

This was another lunch that I had at my brother's when my parents were here last year.

A Date at Dragon-i@1 Utama

What to eat? What to eat? It was Friday evening and I was thinking of Chili's@1 Utama but every time we go there, my partner will eat the Sante Fe Chicken Salad. That's the only thing he will eat at Chili's. Haiz....

Cookie Disaster

Does anybody like Snickers? You know, that milk chocolate bar filled with caramel, peanuts and nougat? I used to stash those in my office drawer and eat in times of stress.

A Bloody Good Lunch : Two Hands Restaurant@Cliq Damansara

Literally bloody, I'll get into that in a bit. Sounds scary? hah..hah... My brother and I had been talking about experiencing the dry aged Black Angus Tomahawk Steak at Two Hands Restaurant@Cliq Damansara after I read the reviews on Kris' and Sean's blog.

A Better Lunch : Empire Sushi@The Starling

I have been passing by this little sushi place at The Starling but was not compelled to try because I was a little skeptical about it. I know I am being judgemental.

Lap Cheong Fried Rice

I can't say that I am a fan of lap cheong (Chinese sausages) though I do not mind if they are present in any dish. As far as I remember, my late grandma loved lap cheong (which we call eng chiang) and if I am not wrong, my mum is a fan too.

Horrible Lunch

I was craving for a bento and I thought I would re-visit a restaurant that I have been before but never went back. Not that the food was bad but somehow I was not fated to go back until now.

Nestum Chocolate Chip Cookies

For anyone curious if I baked cookies for Chinese New Year, nah! here are my cookies! At the end of last year, I did a stock take of my fridge where I found bags and bags of chocolate chips.

Jay Chou Likes This? Liang Sandwich Bar@The Starling

I have read about Liang Sandwich Bar and the roti canai-like sandwich wrap. Then the next thing I know, an outlet opened at The Starling last year.

Mak's What? Mak's Chee@1 Utama

Sorry yah. This week there is no cooking or baking post. Not that I have not cooked or baked. I did but since it was over the Chinese New Year period, there was no time to doll up my food and take pictures.

Lahling, Can I Buy You Lunch?

Does any one of you call your other half by terms of endearment like baby, babe or darling? I call mine "Hoi!".

Lap Food : My Santai Santai Weekends

It is not food from the Laplands and it has nothing to do with  lap dance, God forbid. It's food you can eat on your lap.

Hungry@Sushi Mentai

It was a Wednesday evening and my partner and I were on our way home from delivering oranges to my aunt. The traffic was heavy and we were very hungry.

Lost on Chinese New Year Day : Ra-ft Cafe@Lorong Binjai

I suggested to my brother that we should go for brunch on the first day of Chinese New Year. Since KL is normally very quiet during the festive season, we ought to take the opportunity to venture out to Ra-ft Cafe@Lorong Binjai. To my delight, my brother agreed.

Chinese New Year Eve Walkabout : Keong Hee Huat Chye!!!

It was the eve of Chinese New Year and since it was a relaxing day for me, I decided to spend the morning at 1 Utama. Eh, so free one, ah? How about the kenduri that night?

Pre-Chinese New Year Pigout : El Cerdo 2019

When was the last time I was at El Cerdo? Ah, it was back in in 2016 and my previous pigout there with my brother was in 2015. All in all, I have been to El Cerdo six times, including this latest visit.

Cor Blimey! Is This British Fish and Chips?

This is another one of my backlog posts. I reserved posting because I did not have a good opinion of the food and wanted to revisit to draw a better conclusion.

Chicken Rice No Rice

I know. I know. But this was last year when I was on my crazy low-carb eating regime.

Inspired : Food Prep!

As you may have noticed, I have been eating out a lot lately, moving the economy at Damansara Uptown heh..heh... I have gotten lazy and have not been doing any food preps for myself.

Pumpkin Crisps : Failure!

How many of you are baking goodies for Chinese New Year? I just started and my first attempt at making pumpkin crisps was a big FAIL. Gah!

No No No Don't! : Ngaku Chips (Arrowhead Chips)

Every year since my sweaty endeavor back in 2013, I told myself that I won't bother making ngaku chips because ......... it is tedious peeling them, it is even more tedious slicing them (madolin notwithstanding), it is most tedious frying them ............. and this thing goes straight to my waist, hips and thighs.

Tar Chee's Garlic Peanuts

One of the Chinese New Year snacks that I remember from my childhood is Tar Chee's fried garlic peanuts. Tar Chee was my mum's cousin who sadly passed away some years ago.

My First Taste of Wild Boar Curry

Ever since my partner refused to go back to Goodness Greens, we have returned to Restoran Yik Kee@TTDI. My partner prefers this type of food, rice with dishes rather than my keto, quinoa, salada and funny funny stuff.

Strawberry, Watercress and Siew Yoke Salad

After going crazy over kale, I have now found another new ingredient to grace my salads - watercress. I have read about watercress being used in salsa verde and salads and my immediate thought was the watercress that we use to cook pork rib soup. Alamak how to eat that in a salad?

Pre Chinese New Year Pigout : Kampachi@Plaza 33

Last Sunday, my brother and I went for our first epic makan session for 2019. On my brother's suggestion, we went to Kampachi@Plaza 33.

Dragon Fruit Jelly

Who likes dragon fruit? Quite frankly I am not a fan. Why? Because it doesn't taste like much. It has a peculiar flavor, is barely sweet and the only thing appealing about it is the stunning ruby red color.

What My Auntie Eats in Hobbit Land

Every now and then my auntie spams me from Hobbit Land with photos of the food she eats/cooks. I like hearing from her and when the food is interesting I ask her for the recipe.

Blueberry Cheesecake in Jars

Among the many desserts one may find on the menu or buffet table, my weakness is cheesecake. I am a never-say-no-to-cheesecake person.

Raisin Carrot Cake

This recipe comes from Amy Beh and was bookmarked for many years hah..hah... That's me. I bookmark, print and hoard a load of recipes and then never do anything about it. Tsk!
