Transparent Apron, Kuala Lumpur: A Supper Club is Born

I have a friend. His name is Ryonn Leong. But before you write this off as a childish essay, let me clarify that childhood dreams — and not childishness — is what this article is about. You see, Ryonn who hails from Kelantan has been playing masak-masak since he was a kid. And I don’t…

Elegant Inn Hong Kong Cuisine, Menara Hap Seng: A ‘Simple’ Reunion Dinner

The eve of Chinese New Year is fast approaching. As is with tradition, it’s an evening where family members gather around the dinner table to feast (seriously do you expect any less from us Chinese?) on their last meal before the New Year under the lunar calendar rolls in. In the movies, it’s often portrayed…

The Red Beanbag, Solaris Dutamas: Starting the Day/Year Right

“You should start each day with a song in your heart, a gleam in your eyes and peace in your soul,” advises Lucy as I turn over the cover of my Peanuts-themed Moleskin notebook every morning. Her qoute has constantly reminded me how important it is to start the day right. And there is really…

Simply Mel’s, The Sphere Bangsar South: Eating at My Table

Ploy, Work @ Clearwater, Damansara Heights: Ploy With Your Food

I’m sure you’ve realised how little I’ve posted over the last two months. I blame work for taking up my daylight hours, and procrastination for ruling my nights. For a while I was too lazy to lug my camera around (I so need one of those tiny and chic system cameras) and on days which I did, I…

Gerai Makanan Japanese BBQ @ Taman Desa: A Smokey Birthday Celebration

“Are you sure you want to eat there?” “Why wouldn’t I? I hear the food’s good.” “I have no doubt in that. It’s Hunk-san’s place after all. But it’s your birthday, wouldn’t you prefer some place fancier?” It’s funny how quickly everybody assumes that I’m a food snob with high taste just because I write…

Home + Food: Now, This Is Love

I’ve been told that there is no real recipe for making love (pun not intended). Apparently, it usually just happens (again, not intended). But whoever said that is a fool. Love can be made (seriously, get your head out of the gutter). I knew that even from a young age. And it usually starts from…
