Is Swiss Garden Hotel & Residences Malacca for you?

“Hotel stay here, good or bad for your vacation stay?”

In case you wish to know which hotel we stayed in Malacca, here’s the pretty new Swiss Garden Hotel & Residences, we did.

The interior of the hotel as well as its rooms was elegant, spacious and looked classy, with a reasonable room rate offered. There is also a large balcony in each guest room, for a view or breeze. More

Malacca Food Trail.. The 2nd

“There ain’t the must-eat food in Malacca…. Are there…?”

I ain’t an expert for dine-out food, but I did have my minimal expectation for what I put into my mouth. Afterall, I cooked, home cooking. :)

And, I wanted to revisit Malacca long ago, and dream only came true during this June holiday. We visited Malacca, for food, again. More

Healthy Restaurant-Standard 3-Course Meal cooked with Tefal Comfort Touch Frying Pan

“Optimum nutritious cooking, with heart, passion & TEFAL Pan”

Oh well…. Now that I am into cooking healthy & tasty restaurant food, that has to do with the cooking demonstration workshop I have attended last Saturday. Thanks to the presenter, Tefal, with the great support of omy.sg.

As you probably know, the cooking workshop took place at Onaka restaurant, or called it the healing kitchen. Onaka, giving an impression that it is a Japanese restaurant, but to its regular diners, it’s already so well known that Onaka restaurant features not only Japanese cuisine, but all healthy & tasty multi-national dishes. And most of the time, the dishes are healthy creations of the chefs. More

I Love Mooncakes


“Happy Mid-Autumn Festival 2010 – Have you eaten any mooncake yet?”

Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the important festivals for Chinese. In Singapore, the main festive food to celebrate Mid-Autumn is the mooncake and you could probably see stores selling varieties of mooncake way before the actual day.

As a festive food craze, I loved mooncakes very much! Yes, I would eat at least 1 mini sized or half the regular mooncake every other day once the mooncakes were available in the market. More

The Perfect-licious Parchment Pasta @ Pizza Hut

“Two new Parchment Pastas, the true decadence of uniqueness and tenderness for your tastebuds @ Pizza Hut.”

One of my favourite foods is pasta and that’s why I cook pasta pretty often. I enjoyed eating pasta, for indulging in the great eating pleasure out of its simplicity. It’s not limited to just my own pasta cooking, but I loved having great pasta when dine out, too.

Here come the new additions of two fascinating pasta dishes to the huge pasta family on the menus of Pizza Hut restaurant, which will be served, from today, the 25th August! And, it was my honour to be invited by Nuffnang, the Asia Pacific’s first blog advertising community, and Pizza Hut restaurant, to sample these pasta dishes in an elaborate food tasting session organized by Pizza hut’s marketing dept before the launch. This is not only for the purpose of advertorial, but I was long ago a big buff of Pizza Hut food, per se. Hence, getting to know about the new launching, it made me so excited and I was looking forward to seeing how these Parchment Pasta dishes might look and taste like, since they are named, “Parchment”… More

My Hotpot Dining Experience at Tao Heung (稻香超级渔港) in Hong Kong

“My first hot pot dining experience with Peir 88 of Tau Heung branch restaraunts in Hong Kong. Nice, but it could be better, if I knew….. Read this now and pick up some tips ad tricks on how to enjoy your hotpot meal to the fullest!”

Eating hotpot (or called it steamboat) in Hong Kong was commonly seen and well liked by the people, especially during cold weather. They called it 打邊爐 (in Cantonese: Da Bin Lou) in Hong Kong.

It was late Winter during our visit. Still considered good time to have hotpot, especially after taking a breezy walk in the cold evening. More

Signature Crispy “Piggy” Bun & Fresh Tomato Noodle Soup at 勝香園 @ Sheung Wan, HK Island (香口脆脆和番茄汤面 @ 上環勝香園大排檔)

“All-time packed authentic road side stall which you shouldn’t miss, for their signature fragrant crisped bun and refreshing tomato noodle soup!”

There were so many good eating places in the area of Sheung Wan and Central (上環/ 中環), including the very famous dim sum place, Lian Xiang Lou (莲香樓). But nope, it was not about dim sum, this post featured the value-for-money local breakfast place, 勝香園/ 胜香园 (Cantonese as: Sing Heong Yun), a Hong Kong Dai Pai Dong 大排檔 (roadside stall).

Again, we came to know about this popular roadside stall through a TVB drama series. Smart me was wondering if the stall truly existed in real life, and online research shown that other than the stall name differs a little, the stall as well as its location was actually real! More

Sang Kee Fresh Fish Soup Bee Hoon at Sheung Wan, Hong Kong Island (上環生記鮮魚汤米线)

“Eat what the locals eat.”

We booked our hotel accommodation in Tin Hau area (next to Causeway Bay) where plenty of yummy street food were found. Right after checking in, we were eager to find some food to fill our famished stomachs. However, we did not hang around Tin Hau area for street food. I thought the popular noodle soup would be just right for us, for its convenient location in Sheung Wan, where I needed also to shop for my soy sauce (from Kowloon Soy Co.), and some nice and cheap boots from a streetside stall there. Without further delay, we set off quickly, by MTR.


生記鮮魚汤米線 (Sang Kee)
Since it was weekday noon hour, this tiny shop was swamped by lunchtime crowd, mainly the locals. Many customers were seen waiting eagerly for their turn to get seated. No queueing needed, the shop operates a simple paper ticket queuing system. Though just a hand scribbled ticket number, it was good enough to handle those hungry customers. Upon arrival, just approach the front counter, inform your headcount, take the paper with your designated number and head outside. Don’t crowd at the front counter as it was the cashier as well as the only door in & out. More
