BestFoodJunction (BFJ) had their grand launch last Thursday - CONGRATULATIONS! This was the first time I attended such an event - the venue was just a hop and a skip away from my office. Besides their magazine, BFJ also has a food site where you can read about meal reviews, do e-reservations with certain outlets, get food vouchers/discounts and a host of other food-related ideas. They featured one of my blog posts some time ago. There were various food tables set up by several outlets … [Read more...]

BBQ & Satays – at home…
This is just a short post, peeps!While looking through my photo archives, I realised I haven't posted about the little BBQ we had at home some weeks back. I tried my hand making Satay - pork and chicken ones - and they turned out like these...There're some pork ribs grilling there, too...... and more satays...Wooo... these are sinful slabs of pork belly which were marinated with nam yue (red fermented beancurd) ... I can tell you they were absolutely delish!...and we had Teriyaki Chicken Wings … [Read more...]
Pan Heong – Noodles Heaven
At first the idea of going all the way to Batu Caves, even on a Sunday, seemed daunting. But surprisingly, it was a breeze driving there - just take the MRR and go straight all the way!When I reached Pan Heong, I experienced a sense of deja vu - I have been to this place before - long time ago! I haven't started blogging yet back then - heck, blogging must have been an alien word many years ago!Even from the sidewalk you can see how immensely popular this place is! There were scores of people … [Read more...]
Ipoh Food Crawl – Day 2
My fridge died on me.Sigh. It has been a good & faithful fridge, serving us for the past 15 years (I think) and I certainly mourn its passing. I think the amount of foodstuff stored in it all these years has finally done it in and it's time to go to fridge heaven.Luckily I have a 2nd smaller fridge... so now that is packed to the brim... plus I have an assortment of other dried foodstuff now all laid out in my kitchen which kinda resembles a mini war zone at the moment.Hopefully the new … [Read more...]
Get Softa-Man today!
I'd just like to post something non-food related here. It's about this worrisome A(H1N1) virus that's becoming quite alarming - what with 1 school in the Klang Valley being closed and the virus becoming "locally-transmitted" now! That's where the danger lies - I mean, you never know when you can be exposed to this risk even though you have not travelled anywhere out of the country!One of the very crucial ways to help prevent any kinda infection is to keep our hands clean and disinfected at all … [Read more...]
Trip planning made easy!
I am so used to the internet these days that I cannot imagine how my life will be affected if suddenly there is no such facility! I mean, blogging has been such fun - whether it's reading other people's blogs or posting your own. Not a day passed by without me clicking on all my regular & favourite blogs and leaving my crappy few cents' worth of thoughts, hehe!Now the other thing I love about the internet is how easy it has made our lives now - especially when I need to source for … [Read more...]
Ipoh Food Crawl – Day 1
Food crawls are all the rage these days, aren't they? I realise they call it a "crawl" because by the time you have stuffed your face tummy with as much food as possible within a limited timespan, you practically have to carry your overloaded tummies and crawl back to some cosy comfy spot to hibernate, wait for digestion before hitting the next grub store!On a decadent weekend back to Ipoh, we decided to do just the above.Upon reaching Ipoh, it was way past lunchtime and of course our tummies … [Read more...]
Snacking in Shanghai!
On the final day we were in Shanghai, we had the morning free (our flight was in the afternoon) and decided to take a walk in the neighbourhood we were staying in. It was a very pleasant morning with temperature about 12 deg.C - the cool & crisp air made it a very enjoyable walk!We walked several blocks away from CH's condo and there were interesting sights all around... but let's focus on the FOOD aspect here, haha!Yu Tiao (yau cha kway here) is a very popular breakfast item and we passed … [Read more...]
Robson Heights of Ecstacy
Robson Heights Seafood Restaurant 10B, Jalan PermaiOff Jalan Syed Putra50460 Kuala Lumpur Tel: 03-2274 6216It has been quite some time since I last caught up with my dear friend KL. With her living in Taman Seputeh and just a stonethrow away from the recently-raved-about Robson Heights Seafood restaurant, it just seemed perfectly natural that I made a date with her at that place!The pictures in this post are from 2 separate visits - each time with KL & LL in tow and with DL on one occasion! … [Read more...]
