It feels like a lifetime ago since we last travelled. I am wistful watching travel documentaries on TV. Our last meal in Paris exactly a year ago was the same week chef Stephanie Le Quellec’s restaurant La Scene got awarded its second star. We stayed on for celebrations with all the other chefs (all men!) […]

Picking up from where I’ve left off and crawling out of maternity leave. I had intended to take the entire year off to care for baby G as we have no hired help. Now that we have some sort of routine going, I am rising from the ashes and determined to keep up freelance work […]

The second last trip I took in 2020 was in January where we spent a month in Europe. Mr Chef went to the South of France on a work trip with a truffle supplier and professional chefs for truffle hunting. I followed him on a similar trip a couple of years ago and ate so […]

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 […]

I filed this story pre-Covid19 madness and look forward to going back to Beijing sometime soon. Here are 9 of the best tours I filed for Culture Trip to get to know the Capital city where I have plenty of fond memories having lived there for 5 years. More Beijing stories: A Michelin chef’s guide […]

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 […]

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 took a sidecar feng shui tour with Singapore Sidecars last year when I stayed at the Capella Singapore. While things around the world and the virus epidemic has yet to be resolved, Hong Kong is slowly inching back to life with the new normal – whatever that looks like. Hopefully, obsessively good hygiene remains […]
