Seremban MFF: Hakka Mee

First recipe of the year! And what more appropriate (for the noodle monster in me) than a plate of sexy noodles simply tossed with some umami pork gravy, freshened up by spring onions and pickled green chili? That’s right, I’m talking about Hakka Mee. It’s Negeri Sembilan month for Malaysian Food Fest. If you would…

Time Out KL Food Awards 2012

I remember blogging about the Time Out KL Food Awards 2011, when I just started this blog. In fact it was my fifth post! How time flies. Last year I was at the awards night as one of the supporters for Sid’s Pubs, and the plus one for Frank. This year, I went there as…

Celebrating This Blog’s 1st Birthday with Purple Carrot Cake

First of all… my blog has turned 1!! Yay *throws confetti* Over the year, I’ve written 120 posts including this one, which is more productive than I’ve expected. Needless to say, it has helped me widen my cooking/baking repertoire and opened doors that I didn’t even think of opening. In less than a week’s time,…

This Night Owl Loves Her Eggs

MFF Kedah: Nasi Daging Kedah & Air Asam Tomato

When it comes to regional dishes in Malaysia, I’m afraid my knowledge doesn’t go beyond Sarawak (of course), Sabah, KL/Selangor, Penang, Malacca, and thanks to the MFF, quite a little bit of Terrangganu. Malaysian Food Fest is such a great ‘online’ event for a lot of us to get to know what the people in…

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…

Sarawak MFF: Kolo Mee 干捞面

I’m absolutely loving the Malaysia Food Fest’s Sarawak Month. Seeing everyone’s enthusiasm about Sarawak and its offering is rather heartening. If you have not joined in the fun, check out the facebook event page for all the lovely entries so far. Even as a Sarawakian myself, I’m still discovering new dishes I’ve never tried before….

Sarawak MFF: Stir-fried Manicai with Eggs

I’d like to thank Wendy from Table for 2 or more for organising the Malaysia Food Fest. It’s such a meaningful exercise for us to get to know the unique dishes from each state of our country. And best still, I get to share some of the dishes I’ve grown up eating. Which is why…
