Hong Kong: My Favourite Places to Eat

Confession. I’ve been putting off the idea to write about Hong Kong for the longest time now. I first made a visit to this global Chinatown just about this time last year. I can vividly recall how the city folks were slowly gearing back into their routine after a long break over the Chinese New…

New Formosa Restaurant, SS2: Good Ol’ Favourite

Earlier in the week, a perculiar video made its round on Facebook. One by one my friends were sharing this video. Some found it amusing, while others were appalled by it. I too had to watch it to see what’s the buzz about. I hate to admit it but I actually found it rather amusing. In Boleh-land,…

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…

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

Li Yen, The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur: Mooning over Mid-Autumn Festival

Today is the 15th day of the eight month in the Chinese lunar calendar, which makes today – officially – the Mid-Autumn Festival (???). I know it is hard to keep track when the day is actually celebrated, given how early mooncakes of many different varieties are sold as early as July each year. Ironically, this festival…

Day Trip: Photowalk at Morib Beach, Hai Yew Heng Pau & Cendol Banting Kamarudin

Adele angrily launched straight into the chorus of her hit single, “Rolling in the Deep“. Groggily I came out of slumber and instantly regconised the ringtone. I picked it up and checked the time, it was half-past-bloody-six in the morning. Damn, it’s still dark out there. Who on earth would be calling me so early…
