Zespri 14-Day Challenge: Kiwi in a Salad

Here’s a short and sweet (quite literally actually) post before heading off to yet another gig. First of all, I’d like to share this with you: another feature of Yours Truly, this time on Emmagen.com (Malaysia’s Online Fashion & Lifestyle Blogazine). Just click on this link and it will get you there. 🙂 Also, I’m…

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…

Lemon and Herbs Baked Salmon with Dill Yoghurt Sauce

You’d think after I flooded my blog with Salmon recipes I’d be done with it for a while. But I guess not! I’m keeping my diet as clean as possible this week because I have been a naughty girl and wasn’t watching what I eat as much as I should. Hence the return of the…

Sabah MFF: Hinava (Kadazan Dusun Fish Salad)

This month, the Malaysian Food Fest takes us to Sabah, the other Malaysian state on our beloved Borneo Island. Although we were pretty much neighbours, the only experience I’d had with Sabah was a brief stopover at Kota Kinabalu airport many many moons ago. So unfortunately I haven’t had authentic Sabahan cuisine yet. What I…

Vietnamese Rice Noodles Salad with Salmon (Bun Ca)

Having done the 2 Salmon with noodles posts (Japanese and Italian), I thought I’ll follow up with yet another version featuring the 2 great ingredients. Ms I-Hua suggested that I should try a salad version, hence this dish was born. Taking a great traditional Vietnamese recipe, and refresh it with some lovely pan-fried Salmon. The…

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…

Let’s Meet Up at Al-Amar Express

I could probably eat Lebanese food everyday. Then again, it’s probably not a bad thing. Lebanese cuisine is quite healthy as it usually involves a lot of fresh and raw vegetables, whole grains, lean animal proteins, and often simply seasoned with lemon, olive oil, garlic and some of my favourite spices. The cooking methods usually…

Bibimbap (Korean Mixed Rice)

Bibimbap is one of the most iconic Korean dish, next to the Kimchi. It’s commonly served in households and also restaurants. It literally means mixed rice, or mixed bowl. Tradiotionally, this is a dish the Korean housewives would make with various delectable leftovers in the fridge. And as you can see, there are a wide…

Pan Fried Salmon, Spinach Quinoa, and Mango Salsa

The first time I’ve ever had Quinoa was in Newmarket Hotel, St Kilda. At the time I didn’t know exactly what it was and thought it was a type of grain. Wrong. It’s actually a ‘grain-like’ crop grown for its seeds. Or so Wiki tells me. Even though it has been consumed by the Incas…
