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,…

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…

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

Mai Ramen Cafe, Jaya One: Slurped My Mojo Back

I’m sorry for the lack of posts or tweets recently. It’s been hard finding my mojo back after flushing it down the toilet. I thought a holiday to Krabi would fix it, but I came back feeling more disconnected than ever. It happens to the best of us. But thankfully after last weekend’s shopping spree,…
