The Majestic Malacca – Dining at The Mansion & Pampered at The Spa Village

When we were at The Majestic Malacca, we loved climbing up the wooden staircase to The Mansion – the semi-formal dining room just a floor above the lobby.  The polished wooden balustrade reminded me of the grand old houses back in Ipoh, especially the “big knobs” design on the vertical pillars. The Mansion has a [...]

Melur & Thyme, Suria KLCC

“A memorable mix of East and West, in an arty sidewalk café space”. That, in a nutshell, describes Melur & Thyme perfectly.  Oh, may I also add that this arty sidewalk café is also very stylish and chic looking, which of course, is requisite in an upmarket mall like Suria KLCC.  Its dark wooden panelled [...]

Mum’s Kitchen Restaurant

The lunch we had at Mum’s Kitchen Restaurant was most memorable because it was the meal with the most no. of claypot dishes we’ve ever had!  Pot after pot, they came… smouldering and bubbling, giving out the most heavenly aromas even before the pots touched our table. Recently relocated to Subang, Mum’s Kitchen Restaurant, which [...]

328 Katong Laksa

We made a short trip down south to Singapore a couple of weekends ago. It was almost a “Touch & Go” trip… we were there to watch the Lion King musical (which was totally so enjoyable!) and the rest of the time was just to eat and shop. As we were staying with my good [...]

My home-made Nyonya Chung

This year the Bakchang Festival falls on 6 June. Usually a few weeks before the festival, the Chinese will be making and enjoying the bamboo leaves-wrapped dumplings. My favourite has always been the Cantonese-style “ham yook chung” which I make almost every year (see my post on that here). A couple of weeks back I [...]

Xara’s Food Trail

I have known Xara since we were in primary school. Yes, way back in Ipoh. When we entered secondary school, both of us cycled to school… and that was the beginning of many after-school “extra-curricular” activities. We’d cycle to town to watch our favourite chinese kungfu movies, parking our bicyles for 10sen per movie in [...]

Not even a week had passed since I got back from Bali and I jumped, without hesitation, when dear Masak-masak asked if I’d like to go try out Dancing Fish.  I mean, I had been gorging on Indon-Balinese food for 4 days prior to that and yet I couldn’t wait to go and check out Dancing Fish, [...]

Citarasa 1Malaysia Ramadhan Buffet @ One World Hotel

Since our Prime Minister announced the “1Malaysia” concept back in 2008, it has become almost a part and parcel of our lives – we see this published in the media all the time and businesses have jumped on the bandwagon to leverage on its appeal. The idealogy behind “1Malaysia” emphasizes national unity, ethnic harmony and [...]

Pladip IR1968 Kura1

IR1968 @ Terrace Hock Choon

Prior to visiting this place, I have often wondered what the “IR” stood for. There had been several reviews about this restaurant and the name itself kinda piqued my interest. So when I received an invitation from FBB and Poesy Liang for a review here, I took it upon myself to research it a bit. [...]
