This has got to be one of my favourite cities and I’ve tried to pitch several articles for the past year since my first trip there in January 2019 – that feels like a lifetime ago with Covid19 and the temporary halt on everyone’s lives. Instead of buying more time for my next pitches in […]

We’ve eaten at Le Petit Nice Passedat several times over the past decade since we started dating and it’s truly one of our favourite three Michelin starred restaurants. Gorgeous sunset views (we always go in the summer), stunning rooms and a full-blown Mediterranean menu with the best of the sea distilled in your plate. I’m […]

I absolutely love Indian food and whilst we don’t have the variety and selection of Singapore’s Little India where I would get my Indian food fix, there are plenty of great options here in Hong Kong for Indian food. We are fans of the northern Indian butter chicken. Nearly a decade a go, I went […]

I’ve been using the extra time on my hands to sort out my hard drive as well as photos and catch up with the blog. I know we’re all looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel where Covid19 is dealt with and we can venture out to eat and travel again. […]

My story for Culture Trip after the launch of Beijing’s first Michelin Guide with some of my old and new favourites. I also got to speak to Chinese food authority Fuchsia Dunlop who shed light on the rich offerings of Chinese cuisine.

In November 2019, Mr chef’s protegé Wang Bin earned his first Michelin star for his Contemporary European restaurant The Georg. I made a list of his favourites for Culture Trip on where to eat: from Hotpot to Peking duck. This is my longer version as the story I filed was edited down with the word […]

This has become one of my favourite places to dine in Paris. Great Italian food at the * Michelin Le George, simple, robust dishes in generous portions. They share the same wine list as the *** Michelin Le Cinq, including more Italian options of course. The menu is heavy on plant-based and seafood – giving […]

This story for the SCMP was a joy to put together as it includes all my favourite things – food, history and culture. You can read the piece here. Macanese cuisine has so many similarities to Singapore’s Eurasian food, along with Peranakan food, thanks to the bustling trade routes and influences from Portugal and its […]

I love going back to Beijing, it always feels like my second home. Having spent 5 years living there, and the years my friends and I call “the years we grew into adults”. There, I made life long friends – many who now live across the globe, but we always remained in touch. It’s also […]
