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 […]

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 […]

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.

Of the gastronomic experiences in Sweden and Denmark, Noma, unfortunately, was my least favourite. I just didn’t get the hype around the food nor the brand it has built with a loyal following. More images here. It wasn’t a dining experience I was used to – you’re not allowed to go to the toilet as […]

I am a creature of habit and one of those people eating the same favourite dish at restaurants that I frequent regularly, and usually in the same seat.  Venturing out of my comfort zone takes a fair bit of effort and this January, one of my best friends planned her birthday trip to hit several […]

I LOVED Lisbon and often think about how nice it would be to have a summer house there, or to dream of retirement where you can get amazing food, drinks, culture,art and design without breaking the bank. My travel story on Lisbon for Singapore’s national broadsheet The Straits Times. It’s behind a paywall, so text below. […]

I haven’t been back to Italy since I left in 2006, then with a heavy heart and began a new chapter in life in Beijing. I forgot how much I miss the food, the fresh coffee and the beautiful produce and friendly wildly gesturing people. We ate wild caught sustainable seafood daily, and it was […]
