Lots of food photos as it’s been a little hectic and stressful this past week and I forgot to stop daily to look at the beauty in daily life. None of these photos have been retouched as I’d like to track the process and journey of evolving and getting to know my camera and light. […]

I tagged along with Mr chef on his work trip to Bangkok so I could see my old friend Prima, ice cream designer extraordinaire. We checked out the latest design project Open House at Central Embassy, something they call a “collective living space”, which is really a lifestyle concept store meets giant bookshop with great food […]

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 […]

Just last month Mr Chef was in Sydney cooking alongside Singapore’s new gastro hawker sensation Hawker Chan – the world’s cheapest one Michelin star meal. Move over Tim Ho Wan – overrated dim sum franchise of the decade! We went in search of Hawker Chan on chef’s last visit to Singapore hoping to say hello […]

So many hipster cafés have sprung up around Singapore and they all have the same vibe: rustic, beautiful environment, instagram perfect food and often times instagram perfect mise en scene like marble top tables, rustic utensils for props etc. The refinery is that kind of café serving hipster price (read: overpriced food), but you’re really paying […]

This would have made a great film for the food and culture anthropology class I teach at the hospitality school IFT Macao. Chef Peng, the guy who invented the dish passed away earlier this month, and the documentary digs deep with historians and food writers like Fuchsia Dunlop and Jennifer Lee (who wrote another great […]
