When I was schooling in Malaysia, rather than taking packed lunch from home, my lunches mostly came from my school canteen which were ridicously cheap (when I look back) and comparable to street food in Malaysia. On occasion, I caught ladies working from the nearby offices sneaked into my school canteen for lunch (despite against […]
When it comes to eating simple, aside from stir frys and fried rice, curries are next on my list. I know there are people who are discouraged at the thought of making curries; a long list of unheard of ingredients and the kitchen/house smelling like an Indian restaurant. But on a positive note, I find […]
Weekends are perfect for pancakes as you have the time in world to prepare teeny tiny pancakes. I love anything miniature for instance, cupcakes, mobile phone and coin purses. I like the cosy feeling of eating from a small bowl/plate and my childhood dream was owning a bakery called “Baby Bakery”.
It has been a turbulent week for me because my entire blog has to be deleted without a backup (here for more details).

One might ask why go through all the trouble of making the crepes lacy? I used to have the […]
There’s something wonderful about Italian cuisine; simple, healthy and delicious. It’s a pity that many pasta dishes (I’m pointing to those served in small eateries and cafes) are being misrepresented. Often, they are bland and unexciting like frozen tv dinners and if you think about it, they can be pricey too!
