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…
