Ampang Niang Tou Fu East Coast

Last Monday could not be any more blue… TJ was (still is) ill with no conclusive diagnosis from the doctors we visited. The first doctor said TJ likely has false measles – Roseola, sometimes called Sixth Disease or baby measles, which is characterised by a high fever, followed by a pink-red raised or flat rash. … Continue reading

2016 Mother’s Day Lunch At Open Farm Community!

I have waited 27 years to celebrate this day with my first grandchild! That’s not too bad considering I have friends who are still waiting… 😉 This year officially marks Valerie’s first Mother’s Day celebration (TJ was still in her womb last year) and we were looking forward to brunch at Open Farm Community where … Continue reading

Ministry Of Rojak By Abdhus Salam Rojak

We had Penang food for lunch that afternoon and looking around, I was amused by a signboard “Ministry of Rojak”. I had thought the shop to be selling music CDs (somehow the name brought to mind, Ministry of Sound) or different types of salad since rojak, to me, means “chap pa lang” (a bit of … Continue reading

The Bridge Bistro & Beacon Bar @ RSYC

I have been to the Republic Of Singapore Yacht Club several times for karaoke and drinks but it was usually late at night, after The Bridge Bistro & Beacon Bar were closed for business. Last November, I had the chance to savour, no, devour is more likely, their substantial fare. The river cobbler (or bassa to … Continue reading

Whopping Good Time At Wo Peng Cantonese Cuisine 和平宴!

I was pretty excited about the media invite on 7th January 2016 to taste Chef Julian Tam’s Chinese New Year offerings. I have seen some promotions of Wo Peng on Groupon deals and they were always sold out. This was a great chance for me to get acquainted with some of Chef Tam’s signature dishes … Continue reading

My first meals in 2016 were coincidentally modern Thai cuisine! The first day of new year was suggested by Vanessa and the second day was … Continue reading

Chicken Cracklings with Torch Ginger Flower Rojak Dressing Recipe Inspired By Black Nut

Jake invited Paul and I to Black Nut Bar. We had a table groaning with comestibles like “Awesome Threesome”, nothing kinky here, just the name for a skinny pizza with 3 al funghi that’s all, but I was particularly charmed by the Rojak Chicken Cracklins with Torch Flower marinade. “Simi si torch frau-er?” “Aiyah! Rujak eh … Continue reading

Gin Khao – Thai Street Delights And More!

Some eat to live but I live love to eat 😉 Our transcultural * greetings of “Jiak ba buay?”, “Sik bao mei?”, “Sudah makan?” or “吃包沒?” meaning “Have you eaten?” takes the place of the conventional “How are you?” That’s says quite a lot about us, doesn’t it? “Dining out in Singapore is more than … Continue reading

Zzapi Pizza Bar

When it comes to pizza, what intrigues you? Is it the succulent meats or fresh seafood? The zesty capsicums or sweet onions? The aromatic basil or pungent garlic? The tart flavours of the tomatoes or the salty gooey cheese? To me, a good pizza has 3 components: the dough, the base sauce, and a wide … Continue reading
