Asian Five Spice Duck Leg Confit – S$28.
  • 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.

Big Mama Korean Restaurant

Is This Yours, Big Mama?

The *annual haze is getting worse and some schools were closed recently due to the PSI rising to toxic levels. So I, too, have been staying put at home, relying on the goodwill of Sam and Vanessa bringing me dinner in the late evenings. By late I mean 10.30pm onwards! I had Korean meal yesterday … Continue reading

Rice and Shine!

Rice and Shine! Sam and Vanessa came back in the wee hours and bought me some food for supper which was perfect as I just woke up after a long slumber at 2.30am! But having rice dishes in the middle of the night, in fact throughout the day, in Asia is not a big deal … Continue reading

Wow Wow West Western Food – Serving The Lord On Sundays!

When we arrived at ABC, almost all the hawker stalls within sight were bustling except for one. That stall had a very long queue earlier and we wanted to wait out for it to be shorter but by the time Ross went over to place our orders, they just about half-closed their shutters. The lady … Continue reading


Ma Bo Lor Mee 蔴坡卤面 @ ABC Brickworks Food Centre

May was transferred to work in another location (away from her head office) which was along Bukit Merah Road. Last week, I followed Ross to fetch her when she had to work late that evening of 17th September. After that, we went to a nearby hawker centre – ABC Brickworks Food Centre (the locals simply … Continue reading

Hi Tea Crowne Plaza Changi Airport.

Hi Tea @ Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Terminal 3

Ross was telling me that one time, May received a bottle of teelseed oil from her brother for her birthday. “What the heck is teelseed?” Well, teelseed is actually the seed of sesame! And in Asia, sesame oil is the queen of oils, full of nutritional and therapeutic benefits. Many consider it as food-medicine and … Continue reading

Dim Sum @ Crystal Jade Kitchen (翡翠小厨) Tampines Mall

It’s been a while since I had dim sum in a proper restaurant. I say this because one can get dim sum in kopitiams and food courts but the mass produced fare tasted nothing close to those of an established restaurant’s Hong Kong-styled dim sum. Crystal Jade Kitchen is one of those establishments that is … Continue reading

My best makan kaki and friend Yap Soon Cheong.

I Will Always Miss You… Yup, Yup, Yap!

Most of you who follow my blog know that I have not been posting as frequently as I used to. Many think that I was busy because of my grandson’s arrival. That was partly true but actually my mind was in turmoil. I had lots of food pictures but no texts to accompany them. On … Continue reading

85 Redhill Teochew Fishball Noodle

Vanessa and I wanted to eat fish ball noodle the other day but the stall was closing up when we arrived at the food court. “Come early, tomorrow!” The uncle said. Spoilt with the many good choices readily available in Singapore’s food scene, sagacious diners have become exacting about food and when we are in … Continue reading
