The best part of eating in a familiar heartland environment is the genuine happy faces that serves you :D
  • 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.

Toa Payoh Housing Estate 大巴窑

A good part of my younger days were spent growing up in Toa Payoh Lorong 2 when my maternal grandma (pictured below) lived there. I was trained at the Toa Payoh Swimming Complex but my drowning experiences stopped me from pursuing this sports even at leisure. Guess I was a fish out of water. I … Continue reading

Race Me To The Moon @ Yuen Fatt Biscuit Sdn Bhd

I used to live in Subang Jaya before moving to Dubai so Malaysia was not only a neighbouring country to Singapore where I am currently living in, it was like my second home. Malaysians are friendly and once you get acquainted with them, even for a short period of time, you will experience their sincere … Continue reading

Kok Sen Restaurant.
Serving rustic Cantonese food for decades.

Kok Sen Restaurant 国成餐室

Completely exhausted and parched. I couldn’t decide if it was the hot weather or the msg in my briyani lunch. Two ice cold beer from Tippletown Cafe did not help at all. So this round at Three Buns, I had iced coffee – white, while Z, still dizzy from his fruit beer (which he only … Continue reading

Everton Food Place

I am having tremendous fun in Project X (the job I’ve recently taken on) and acquiring lots of new photography and post processing technique along the way. I am back in “school” again but this time, the learning institution is more modern; not confined to a classroom, accessible any time and you can even choose … Continue reading

Marutama Ramen @ The Central

This meal was eaten weeks ago. Washiyama said Marutama Ramen is one of his favourite shop in Singapore. Located in The Central, Marutama’s specialty is of course, Ramen! There was a queue when we arrived even though it was after the peak lunch hours. We pre-ordered our meal while in line. The boys took the … Continue reading

Meal time with Washiyama at The Big Bird Chicken Rice.

The Big Bird Chicken Rice

I know there’s lots of tutorials that can be found online but I’m the sort of student that needs hands-on (monkey see monkey do) sessions. I have attention deficit and needs adult supervision, lol… I also forget faster than you can say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and therefore need a patient coach who speaks my lingo! Washiyama’s been … Continue reading

Mee Soto Ayam.

Mee Soto Ayam At Hainan 7

“Why your one got so much fried shallots? The aunty must like you more!” Two guys at the next table looked up from their meals at whiny me complaining about condiments. They were nice enough not to roll their eyes. They smiled at me, even seemed genuinely amused by my childish rant. When I whipped … Continue reading

Koo Kee Yong Tow Foo Mee 高記釀豆腐面 @ People’s Park Food Centre

For more than 60 years, Koo Kee has been dishing out bowls after bowls of delicious home-made Yong Tau Foo (YTF). It was until recently that I realised this stall is a brand name under Gao Ji Food. My brother was the first to bring me to Koo Kee for YTF almost 2 decades ago. … Continue reading

Brisket King Beef Noodles @ Food Republic Shaw House

Every Sunday is movie night but this activity was suspended recently as Valerie and Ryan are busy with the expansion of their school and wedding preparations. I was a little, sob sob… Okay, okay, I was in fact, very upset! One night, after Valerie got home from work, she found some time for me, so … Continue reading

Making 100 friends is not a miracle. The miracle is to make a single friend who will stand by your side even hundreds are against you. – Anonymous I had two angels with me yesterday. We finished our project and went on our way to eat. Z had eaten a few hours ago at the … Continue reading
