Zespri 14-Day Challenge: Roast Cajun Chicken with Kiwi Salsa

We are now halfway through the 14-day Kiwi Challenge, which means I’ve had at least 14 Kiwifruits so far! How do I feel? Well, apart from the fact that I’m slightly hungover today which really doesn’t help, I don’t feel a major difference yet probably because I already consume a lot of fruits and vegetables…

Ang Jiu (Foochow Red Wine) Chicken Soup with Mee Sua

A break from the fishy posts (though I’m glad you like the recipes) and here I present the ultimate comfort food: Chicken Soup. Not just your regular Chicken boiled with ginger and mushrooms, but with homemade Foochow Red Wine. That’s right, the bright hue might be a little confronting but most Sarawakians (or Sitiawan foochows)…

Ayam Percik Kelantan (MFF Kelantan)

As promised, I’m back with a recipe. And this one is a doozy, featuring one of the most versatile protein, chicken. Specifically, the thighs (well, legs). The breast lovers can divert your attention now (or make the substitution if you want). There must be over a hundred way to cook Chicken thighs, even in Malaysia…

Bintulu/Sibu Trip and Giveaway!

Last week we did a whirlwind trip to Bintulu and Sibu, because we were to celebrate my paternal grandma’s 80th birthday in Sibu. For clarification purposes, I come from a mixed Foochow (paternal) and Teochew (Maternal) heritage. Most of my Foochow relatives reside in Sibu, and Teochew relatives pretty much everywhere (Bintulu, Miri, Kuala Lumpur,…

Healthy Nasi Lemak (Well, Almost)

Before I blog about the final of the Nutriplus Pastry Competition, I shall contribute a recipe as it’s been a while. Thank you all so much for your lovely messages on the last post, it’s very heartening to see as some of you I haven’t even met in real life. I love how food brings…

Marutama Ramen

A few days ago, Time Out KL published a list of the Best Ramen in KL. Out of the 9 on the list, I’ve already been to 5 of them, some of them more than once! For someone who doesn’t even eat out much, I guess that makes me a certified Ramen addict (you probably…

Lemon and Tarragon Roast Chicken with Three Vegs

The constant drilling from the neighbours have left us a pretty hefty sleep debt. It’s a little better now this week but they are still hammering away. It must be my luck: my previous neighbour in Melbourne was pretty noisy too. Anyway…. I guess I haven’t been cooking many interesting dishes lately due to lethargy….

Kar Heong Restaurant and Few Announcements etc.

Firstly, I’d like to draw your attention to a local movie which has just opened over the weekend: Kepong Gangster 《甲洞》 (click on link to find out what the movie is all about). Several months ago I was invited to play an extra on the movie. It was a mere 20 seconds or so footage, but still…

Five Spice Braised Soy Sauce Chicken Mini Pies

If you were wondering how come there’s a sudden increase in Chicken Pies’ photos in your facebook stream, or instagram it’s because this week’s Bake Along‘s theme is Chicken Pie. This is my first time participating in the challenge and I hope I will be diligent enough to continue. Most chicken pies have all-too-common leek, mushrooms…
