Found these photos from over a year ago and realised that I never wrote about my last Taipei trip. I no longer go on the hunt for “best this and that” following the crowds, but instead spend more time in the moment, wandering and discovering instead of checking things off a list. Here’s what I […]

This was a random book I pulled out from the library and a fun read. A short existential love story with a literature professor as the protagonist, referencing and alluding situations to all of my favourite authors and literary pieces during my angsty late teenage years and through university from Goethe’s Sorrows of Young Werther […]

I took up the offer to visit my old friend Fish and spend time with her beautiful family who were on an NGO secondment in Melaka. Spending quality time and reminiscing about the old days over 17 years ago (!) had to be my favourite part of the trip, never mind the food. I love […]

It’s similar to a Bacon Cheddar Scones recipe I posted, with some modifications.   I am back practising how to take better photos […]

Every self respecting person with Peranakan roots will tell you that the best laksa to be had is made by their grandmother, mother or themselves. I think in my generation we all cheat with ready made paste or we vacuum pack our mother’s freshly made rempah (spice paste) along with homemade belacan. Visiting friends are […]

I don’t remember when I stopped caring about social media and the meaningless numbers for likes and followers. I’m still blogging as I used to since 17 years ago?! It took me a long time, but I finally found peace with work and no longer struggle with the social media façade. I have moved into more […]

This is a belated post and the restaurant has since gone on to garner one Michelin star. I liked the food here, but have many friends who didn’t. I think the flavours and tastes were well distilled, but the execution still feels like a work in progress. Well, I later learned that chef Han was […]
