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 […]

Baby G turns 7 weeks this weekend and I’ve been cloth diapering part time for the last 6 weeks since we got back from the hospital. It’s been alot of trial and error, to say the least, wee leaks and figuring out his pee/poo schedule. Some tips on troubleshooting leaks. I cloth diaper during the […]

What strange times we live in. Baby G is now a little over 4 weeks old. I’ve revisited this earlier draft and just publishing now. I was afraid to do so in advance, with the anxiety of jinxing myself given my medical history. I gave birth via an elective C section as Baby G was […]

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 […]

My latest story for Healthy Hong Kong. I have found it immensely helpful in feeling grounded, balanced and re-energised. Whether it’s the grounding “Yang” energy of gongs or the “Yin” of crystal bowls, I’ve found sound therapy through vibrations really calming and rejuvenating. Red Door Studio in Wong Chuk Hang has Asia’s largest collection of […]

I discovered this little print store Odd One Out tucked away off St Francis Street (up a little flight of stairs) at the junction corner of the Monocle Store and bought a whole bunch of print cards. I must have walked passed plenty of times over the years and didn’t know of their existence until […]

This year’s Food Future Summit in its third year was held at Asia Society – one of my favourite architectural spaces in Hong Kong. A former British military compound used in the production and storage of artillery and ammunition. The future of food looks bright full of animal-free possibilities at Friday’s talks and innovative pop-ups. […]

I contributed to this month’s July 2019 Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia’s Food Issue on where we eat in Hong Kong. It is by no means limited to this list, but I had to cramp everything into 4 full pages with a balance of local, western and fine dining spots. There are many other favourites, […]

Another year, another Art week and more interesting visual treats. I was having a discussion with a designer friend the other day and we see it in fashion and art that there’s a considerable amount of works that just skim the surface without the depth and breadth of concept, construction and artful execution of the […]
