Looking forward to the reopening of borders – God knows when. One thing we really miss about Macao is the dining scene. Here’s a story I wrote for Travel Weekly for MGTO.

Cafe Melaka It’s been a while since I’ve been here, but when I was living in SYP neighbourhood, I used to get my laksa and char kueh teow fix at Cafe Melaka at Hotel Jen. You can find chendol, rojak and the whole works on the menu. I’m have to make another trip back now […]

I haven’t been home to Singapore since February last year and that was the last trip I had taken on a plane. I’ve really lucked out having discovered the community of homecooks in Hong Kong doing amazing food. Southeast Asian food is rich, complex and delicious. It is also alot of prep work to create […]

We had a bunch of overripe peaches and nectarines in the fridge that was too soft and squishy to eat so I sliced them up and threw them into a mix of Ingredients: one teaspoon of lemon juice 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence (I would have used the pods if I had them) One teaspoon […]

I haven’t jumped on the keto bandwagon just yet, as most of my friends have and swear by the efficacy of the diet on weightloss.

We all wonder when can we ever travel again. Hong Kong is dealing with its third wave of Covid19 cases with challenges in tracing its source and unfortunately so many asymptomatic cases. I’ve been prudent and staying indoors, partly because of the sweltering summer heat and also avoiding risks of catching Covid with a compromised […]

I’m so proud of my friend Samaira for getting the show on the road. She’s one of the best home cooks I know and a wealth of information for Indian cuisine. Her mum used to run a Dabbawala (tiffin meals) business in Bombay and naturally she grew up in the kitchen. Taking the name from […]

Macao has so many options for great food with more affordable options than Hong Kong. We love Indian food, and two restaurants I miss very much is one Michelin starred Golden Peacock in Venetian and Goa Nights in Taipa Village. They have a really interesting cocktail menu inspired by voyage and adventures of Portuguese sailors […]

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 […]
