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 […]

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 […]

I contributed to reviewing the Top 20 Restaurants in Hong Kong and Macau. ( No conflict of interests – I stay […]

I’ve been to Test Kitchen twice now – an interesting concept that brings in different chefs to cook for a couple of days. The first was an uneventful dinner by Rice Paper Scissors quite a while back and I didn’t have any desire to to go back since, but my Malaysian friend coaxed me into […]
