Cow Cow

After lunch the other day, I decided to walk around Damansara Uptown as a form of exercise. Hah! It was not a very hot day owing to the rain earlier.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

I am so determined not to just look at the photos in my cookbooks. So I made an effort to cook another recipe from it. Sweet and Sour Meatballs. Easy peasy, right?

Traditional Malay Curry

I am no authority on curries, Malay or otherwise. That's what it said on the packaging, Gulai Melayu Tradisional. So I took it as good and for the first time, tried a recipe printed on a spice packaging.

The Chap Fan Lady Freaked Out

Whenever I go and eat chap fan, the lady boss never speaks to me beyond telling me the price to pay. Not that she is snobbish or anything.

Sambal Lebur

I am always on the lookout for sambal recipes, especially the easy ones that require no exact measurements where you can simply chuck stuff, blend and then simply saute the whole lot in the wok.

A Minty Coleslaw

When my mum visited recently, she brought me two containers of Kemangi/Selasih seeds (from my dad's garden).

I Fell In Love

One morning I was greeted by these Adenium flower buds. And then I was greeted with more blooms. This is a good sign, no? Love is in the air! So who did I fall in love with?

Mummy's Fried Chicken

It was a last minute decision to make my mum's fried chicken one Sunday.

What Do You Want To Eat, Darling?

"Ai chiak hamik?" (what do you want to eat? He didn't say darling, that was just wishful thinking on my part) my partner asked me one Friday evening. "Lu ai chiak hamik?" (what do you want to eat?) I asked him back.

Mongolian Chicken

Or is this Thai chicken? I ask because the sauce is made with Thai chili sauce. So how is it Mongolian? Never mind. Asal sedap, sudah.

Curry Laksa vs Japanese Laksa

Just in case you thought that I am so good for staying on a low carb diet, I do deviate from time to time. I was badly behaved one particular day.

Go Noodles No Noodles

Who does that, right? Go into a noodle shop and tell them you don't want noodles.

I Hope You Are Not Having Your Breakfast Now

Or lunch or dinner while reading this. That's because I want to talk about poop. Caterpillar poop. Look what I found one morning. Nestled on my Adenium leaf were one, two, three, four droppings. Eeeuwww!!!

A Lunch and Movie Date

With the brother last weekend. It's great that the two of us can still spend time with each other in our adulthood.

Mitsuyado Sei-Men

After my first experience, I had to go back. In the beginning, I was a little iffy about the Yuzu dipping broth. 

Friday, 28 July 2017

Home Kitchen

That's Restoran Home Kitchen. A fairly new chap fan shop which opened last year, if I remember correctly. Yup, eating chap fan again. Haiz....

My El Cheapo Lunch

I am on the chap fan trail again. Eh, what happened to the weekend cooking?

Meatballs With Baked Beans

Who loves baked beans? Me! Me! There was a time when I lived in a rented room and I used to eat baked beans straight from the can.

Strange Tasting Wanton Mee

I was very hungry the other day and when it was time to eat, I decided to try the new wanton mee place.

Fried Macaroni

After making Macaroni Soup, I decided to do something else with my stock of macaroni. There are many recipes for fried spaghetti and I thought why not fried macaroni. True enough, there are lots of recipes for macaroni goreng (fried macaroni) with many versions.

I Wore My Selipar Jepun To The Ritz Carlton

I am terrified of wedding dinners mainly due to the time overrun. And especially if the event is held on a Sunday evening.

Meehoon Goreng

I suddenly had a craving for meehoon goreng. Malay style with lots of chilies. Besides, I had an awesome Sambal Jate that would go brilliantly with the meehoon goreng.

Kampua Mee

The first time I heard about Kampua Mee was when I followed Mr Arthur Wee's blog. Mr Wee is rather fond of Kampua Mee and everytime he blogs about this noodle, I get more and more curious about it.

Grandma's Macaroni Soup

When I was a little girl, my grandparents loved to cook macaroni soup with chicken and vegetables. Grandma called it "maconi" instead of macaroni.

Best Way To Eat Guava

I don't know if this qualifies as a pickle but in Malay it is called Jeruk Jambu Batu Asam Boi and the word jeruk means pickle. Or perhaps the word "marinated" would be more appropriate.

Another Health Crisis. Haiz!

I am a disaster lately. First it was the flu. And then I threw out my back. Last weekend, while changing my bedsheets, I bent over to straighten the sheets. Pop! Pop! I felt my back going out of alignment.

Sambal Jate. Awesome Habis!

This is the fastest that I tried a recipe after seeing it on a blog. Thanks to LiNa_Pg I learnt about a sambal that I never heard of before. 

Friday, 7 July 2017


Makan lagi. Takde keje lain dah. I'm at it again. Eating, eating, eating. Some of you said that it was too soon for me to be eating so much after the flu. I should stick to a simple diet until I am fully recovered. But no. My stomach wants solid food. So I gave in.

Revenge Eating

Whenever I am recovering from a certain something - flu, fever or whatever, the first sign of recovery is the return of my appetite. I never say no to food and losing my appetite is something that rarely ever happens.

Hari Raya Flu

Hey there! I'm back. But only for today. While you were having a great time with family and friends, I came down with the flu, right smack on the first day of Hari Raya.

Thursday, 22 June 2017

Selamat Hari Raya

Hari Raya is just two days away. How time flies, eh? So, my Muslim friends, how are your preparations? Going smoothly I hope and not helter skelter like my Chinese New Year preparations hee..hee..

I Want to Eat! I Want to Eat!

I love eating. My favorite pastime is shoving food into my mouth especially when I am vegetating in front of the TV. Munch, munch, munch. Ah...perfect bliss...

You Call This Daging Dendeng?

Jangan ketawa! (Don't laugh). My Daging Dendeng is a disaster. More like daging ding dong.

I Could Eat This Everyday

Excuse me, yah? I have featured tempeh before and I am posting it again. I haven't had tempeh for a while and I simply had to have it again.

Restoran Sri Thai@Damansara Uptown

One evening, my brother and I had dinner at Restoran Sri Thai. Yup, he played Uber driver to his sister who had no transport that day hee..hee...

Sambal Brinjals

I know this bowl of Sambal Brinjals does not look legit. Sambal Brinjals are supposed to look all red and fiery and mine is yellow.

Do These Look Like Flowers?

Yeah, right. Ugly flowers. Sometimes, when I have lots of thing to do, I like to torture myself by cooking something simple, made difficult.

Stress Buster Cookies

I had a very bad week. I was asked by the senior partner to do something against my conscience and ethics.

Look What I Found In The Freezer

This here is my freezer. It's a standalone freezer. And it's full of stuff. Some of which I have no idea what they are. Once I even found a head. Yikes!

My Happy Meal in a Happy Bowl

Do you ever wonder what I do with the food I cook and post on the blog? Of course, obviously I eat the dishes.

Pa's Favorite Cake

You know, I never liked Butter Cake until I tasted this one. The very famous Mrs SK Ng Butter Cake. It is light, fluffy and buttery.

Wednesday, 7 June 2017

Where Are The Mushrooms?

I went to my favorite place at The Starling for lunch the other day. I did not want to eat anything stodgy like pasta or rice or potatoes. So I stuck to the salad section.

Tuesday, 6 June 2017

Lungs Anyone?

Does this look hideous? It's lungs. Beef lungs. One of my favorite dishes to pick at the the nasi campur stall.

Soft, Chewy and Addictive

I cannot believe that I actually enjoyed these soft and chewy cookies. In the past, I would have turned my nose up at them and declared them "lau hong" (stale).

Dry Laksa. Nice or Not?

After my first visit to Laksamaana, I had to return for the Dry Spicy Laksa. Just to satisfy my curiosity lah.

Blueberry and Lemon Cupcakes

What? Are blueberries on sale again? Well, the last time I bought them for RM9.90 and then the price reduced to RM8.90. So how could I resist?

Sambal Potato Wedges (Sambal Goreng Kentang)

I love potatoes. If I had my way, I would eat them everyday. But alas I cannot. I cannot eat too many carbs lest I grow even bigger. Gaarrgh.... carbs, why do you make me fat?

Sinfully Triple-X

When was the last time I ate chocolate cake? I really cannot remember. Now suddenly, I want chocolate cake. Bah! I shouldn't have thought about it.

Sambal Gesek? Sambal Lonte? Sambal Totok?

I saw a post on ready made Sambal Totok and I was curious as to what sort of sambal it was. So I did a search.
