  • The power of food as a bonding tool – use it to create a meaningful relationship!

  • “Cooking is not about being the best or most perfect cook, but rather it is about sharing the table with family and friends.” ~ Skye Gyngell

    Restaurants and food reviews reflect my personal taste experience. One man's meat is another man's poison. What I like and dislike may be in conflict with your opinion. To each his own.

    The recipes I provide have been tried, tested and adjusted to my family's preference. On seasoning of food; when in doubt, less is more.

The Bakery Chef

Coffee culture is growing in Singapore and little cafes are sprouting up everywhere. Where they were once confined in Orchard Road, they are now available anywhere there’s human traffic. The dense and dry Red Velvet here failed to impress me but their Rainbow Cake was definitely better than the more expensive (S$12) and vibrant-looking cake … Continue reading


God Made A Swimming Pool None Can Rival!

Valerie and Ryan departed for their honeymoon but it was worrisome for me at first. Their plane ran into some problem and after it landed, and the newly weds had to disembark on the runway. A bus brought them to the terminal. Luckily, the young couple did not have any check-in luggage as those who … Continue reading

I Now Pronounce You Man And Wife… You May Kiss The Bride!

Before we went to the Registry of Marriage on the 9th October 2014, Ryan gave us (Valerie’s family) a treat at one of our family’s favourites, 李白 – Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant @ Sheraton Towers Singapore. We’re training him to become the head of our household aka please-foot-the-bill-man, lol… Named after the famous Tang Dynasty … Continue reading

I’m Getting Married In The Morning!

I’m getting married in the morning! Oh well, not me but Ryan and Valerie got hitched officially on 9th October 2014 and by that, I mean they’re legally bound by Singapore’s marital laws ;-) Before they register their marriage, Ryan had to seek Valerie’s parents’ blessings and asked for her hand. Below are some traditional … Continue reading

Delicious Makan Trail In Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia! Part 4 (Da Bei Shui 大杯水)

While we were at Kedai Makanan Swee Kee, Benny noticed a banner across the street (in front of a food centre) informing their regulars that Mee Jian Kueh had moved to Da Bei Shui Kopitiam. These were the two places we wanted to go and now that they are housed under one roof, our route … Continue reading

Delicious Makan Trail In Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia! Part 3 (Kedai Makanan Minuman Ah Soon 阿顺猪杂汤)

Our next destination was supposedly a heavenly tasting snack but our roving eyes caught a crowded kopitiam selling fish head beehoon shop, Kedai Makanan Minuman Ah Soon 阿顺猪杂汤. Needless to say, the gluttony part of us detoured from the original route and we dashed swiftly to it. All of us agreed that this unexpected discovery … Continue reading
