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…

DISH, Dua Annexe: The Art of Dish-ing by Chef Steve Allen

My friends must think that I’ve gone missing by now. They’ve not heard of or seen my face for a good while now. But try explaining to them how your bosses and colleagues expect you to be a creative solution agency, an events company, a marketing & communications expert, social media titan, Bob the Builder,…

Jeff Lee Kitchen, Kampung Baru Sungai Buloh: A Great Discovery

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

Our table is brimming with good things to eat. Some might say that it is over-spilling as we over-indulge (once again) in Aunty Melba’s cooking. The Panda and I have really grown to like the food here. Keluak Sambal, Chincalok Omelette, Papa Vincent’s Fish Cutlets, Crispy Belachan Wings and Salt Fish Pickle almost always make…

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…
