A visit to Hello Kitty Town & Little Big Club and overnight stay at Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour in Johor, Malaysia

“If you ask me, I would tell you that this place was comfortably… fun.”

I wasn’t too enthusiastic to visit JB town initially, but given as an assignment, I had to. And, I am going to tell you it’s a place to go, especially with young children!

Though the location wasn’t far from the Tuas second link exit, I decided to book the bus coach instead of self driving, at least I would be in a group along the way. And my plan was to return only the next day after an overnight stay at Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour. More

Mango Sticky Rice

“Delicate dessert to be made at home. Who says you can only eat this in the Thai restaurant?”

When I had craving for food which normally served in the restaurant, I would always try my mean to cook it at home. Not so the economic reason sometimes, I enjoyed the satisfaction and achievement for being able to whip up food which looked deceptively difficult to assemble and overvalued by the market. It just made me feel contented to see my loved ones enjoy my creation more than having it outside.


This stick rice with mango wasn’t too difficult to assemble. In fact, the cooking was pretty versatile. You may steam the glutinous rice with any steamware you have in your kitchen as long as getting the sticky rice cooked to the right texture you liked (usually done in 20-25 minutes). If my recipe for the coconut sauce isn’t what you prefer, no fret, too. For one who likes the saltish flavour to be more visible in the coconut sauce, add bigger pinch of salt. If you have sweet-tooth, increase sugar, instead. Otherwise, use just the coconut milk without any addition of condiment. What you need is to taste while cooking to find your perfect flavor. No hard and fast rule. Keep trying, keep cooking. Enjoy! More

Looking for Fun or Food in Club Med Bintan Ria?

“Vacation is about fun & food. When food is not a good enough option, look out for fun, most out of all!”

Revisiting Club Med Bintan Ria was my wish, and I just did, after 8 years. It was done with my two children, this time. I had something to say… Yea, once lauded Club Med Bintan in my old posts (year 2008) as one of the best all-inclusive resorts that served plentiful great food, I felt the obligation to pen down the latest experience of my most recent visit there.

As a foodie alike, my emphasis was always on the food. Food? Yes, food. There were only two restaurants serving their guests now. First, the main buffet restaurant, The Waterfall, was where we had all 3 meals a day throughout the stay, it had nothing much for me to shout about. More
