Cook. Eat. Wash Up.


The last time I made Spaghetti Aglo Oilio with Bacon and Mushrooms, chili flakes was sorely missing.  My pasta was so lacking in kick. But guess what?

Authentic Kelantan Delights? I'm Coming!


There are many new eateries coming up in Damansara Uptown. Some have been there for many months waiting to be discovered. While running errands one day, I passed by Village House Kopitiam. Authentic Kelantan Delights. Ah!

No Cookies No Cakes, Let's Bake Pasta Instead


Apologies for the lack of baking posts lately. I have been putting in extra hours on Saturdays at the office. By the time I come home, I'm brain dead and the only thing I can process is my favorite TV show.

Muchachos! We Love Churros!


It was a Saturday and my brother and I had just had lunch at Capital Nasi Dagang Kelantan. He had the Ultimate Nasi Dagang while I had the Nasi Kerabu topped up with Ayam Percik. And yet, we were still peckish after we were done. So.

What's Green And Incredible? It's Not The Hulk


When I was a teenager, The Incredible Hulk was one of my favorite TV Shows. Bill Bixby played Dr David Banner who turns into this huge foul tempered green muscular guy when he gets angry (in the process, his shirt get torn but not his pants).

It's Your Turn To Laugh At Me


Okie, I offended some people when I said that Korean male actors/K-pop stars look girlish. It sort of got me thinking, when I was younger, who did I have the hots for?

If Pigs Could Fly


They would land in Damansara Uptown at Ampersand by Culinary Rebels. When I got wind that the new menu was being launched last Saturday, I quickly made reservations for table for two.

He's Korean. Is He Handsome?


Today I stand in the line of fire. Young girls, aunties and makciks want to take a swipe at me for what I am about to say.

Is Alone Lonely? Solo Lunches@Superthai Damansara Uptown


Do you like being alone? Spending time alone? To some people, that is a terrible prospect. But to me I'm cool with that. I am pretty much a loner, so much so, I was known as the Lone Ranger when I was in university.

Is He HOT?


Gordon Ramsay. Is he? Hot as in hot tempered? Or hot as in hot hot? My mum professes her fear of Gordon Ramsay. He makes her nervous. All that yelling and swearing and cursing. She cannot watch Gordon Ramsay because he is very scary. So mum quickly turns off the telly when Gordon comes on. Me?

I Was A Bad Sister. Bonding@Epicuro Uptown Damansara


Food. That's how we bond, my brother and I. When we were little, bonding was usually over a spot of masak-masak or kahwin, with the other brother in tow.

Alex Goh's Cheddar Cheesecake


Do you remember the cheesecake that jumped off the table? I wasn't about to give up so easily. I had another go last Saturday. But no. No success. Because ooopss!!! IT did it again!!

I Had Brownies For Lunch. So What?


Why not? hee..hee..hee... It all started when the air conditioner in my office malfunctioned. Drat! It was blowing hot air. So we called in the technician. As it turned out, something in the compressor needed to be replaced.

My Japanese Cheesecake Committed Suicide

Harakiri. Or was it a Kamikaze? I don't want to talk about it but there are many sadists out there who love baking disasters.

A Treat For My Auntie@You Know Where


What?? Ampersand by Culinary Rebels again???? Are you bonkers???? This happened some 3 weeks ago. I did not get to treat my auntie the first time we came here, so this was my chance to make it up to her.

Ajitama. Can You Eat 100 Eggs?


You know, I have been watching one Youtube channel that has me fixated. Yuka Kinoshita. Japanese competitive eater. She's cute. She's pretty. And boy, can she eat!

Baking Is Stressful


Sometimes. It's supposed to be relaxing but sometimes it's not. This is the cheesecake I baked using the excess cheesecake filling from the Mini Coffee Cheesecakes. I was running late and because of the excess filling, I had to bake another cake. So this one was baked in a hurry, rather reluctantly at that >.<

An Evening@El Cerdo and Madam Got Drunk


It was a Friday. Friday as in TGIF. The day when most of you happening people go out after work to have a good time chilling out and do whatever it is that you cool people do. Me?

A Fridge Clearing Salad


My fridge is looking positively less congested these days. I have been diligently clearing off ingredients (half consumed sauces, bits and pieces of vegetables) and making sure that I don't overbuy.

Lunch@Superthai Uptown Damansara


Remember I said that Sen of Thai is the only Thai restaurant in Uptown Damansara? That is not true anymore.
