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 […]

Travelling to the Otago Peninsula on New Zealand’s South Island should be on everyone’s travel list. There’s plenty to do: taking in nature, outdoor adventures and the local dining scene to touring local sights. Naturally, for many, food plays an important part in the trip. Check out these options of casual and upscale restaurants, fancy […]

The Art Macao festival runs through October and here are some highlights on Art inspired menus as well as creative cocktails to make the best out of your trip to Macao.

I was so sad to read that Faviken is closing at the end of the year and so grateful I got to dine there this January. It’s been one of my favourite experiences so far and I was so looking forward to go back with the husband next year. It made January’s dinner all the […]
