This is a short post as I’m currently on long vacation in Europe. My plans to schedule a few posts didn’t worked out, so I thought it’s better I update with a quick post.
Apple & stone fruits are now in season in Europe and even though it’s the end of the season for the berries, it’s still very cheap for us Malaysians. So I’m happily snacking, making smoothies & desserts with the fruits.. happy bunny. Luckily I’m staying with friends that let me use their kitchen and raid their fridge :) Continue Reading →
I just got back from a week-long retreat with yoga & raw food detox at Bahay Kalipay Retreat Center on beautiful Palawan Island, it has been a week of rejuvenating and slowing down besides the detox. I’m sure you will hear about someone detoxing or doing some cleanse very so often. Besides doing a one-off detox to remove toxins from your liver, kidney and gallbladder, a good detox is actually a gentle process that can take a few weeks by replacing the wrong food with nutrien-rich food to restore your organs like liver and gallbladder.

From the department of Eating Real Food By Making Food From Scratch — the same department that started the campaign with homemade sweetened condensed milk a year ago — comes this public service announcement: Making your own almond milk is very easy and cheap.
I find that if I have too much dairy products, it starts to bother me, so I keep it to a minimum and use alternative. I don’t drink much milk, usually use them in baking/pancakes. Continue Reading →
Almost every day after dinner during my growing up years, Sunkist oranges will definitely be on the fruits platter for dessert. I think that’s pretty much a typical scene in most Malaysian homes back then. Eating fresh orange and juicing are the 2 most common ways most people consume oranges. When I was invited to attend a cooking demo with Sunkist, I look forward to discovering new ways to use the citrus. Continue Reading →
Ciku oh ciku.. I love thee.. I remember there used to be a ciku tree in my family house that bear abundance of ciku fruits. We moved later on and over the years, the price of ciku kept increasing. The fruit sellers said there’s not many ciku farm, hence ciku supply is very limited. Continue Reading →
One thing I don’t like about vacations is over indulging in food – which I tend to do a lot. and I’m feeling bloated after the short island getaway last weekend. And my immediate remedy – Ginger Lemongrass Tea.

Cold and sweet. Rich and creamy. Slurped through a straw. My taste buds do double takes. How can this be avocado? Before I can figure out the answer, my glass is empty. Here at the famous Kafe Warisan in Bali with my galpals, I had my first unforgettable rich Avocado Shake served with chocolate syrup dripped on the side of the glass. The green landscape before me is of rice paddy fields, abundant bananas and falling coconuts. But avocados? Who invited them? Continue Reading →
It is getting hotter by the day, and most days I am wishing to be soaked in the pool the whole day.. Ah.. that would be complete bliss..
Well, not having that kind of luxury, I make do with refreshing watermelon mint cooler by the poolside. What’s missing in the picture are the mini umbrellas.. Continue Reading →
It’s mango season here in Malaysia, you can see mangoes everywhere. With the days getting hotter and mangoes aplenty, what better way to cool down than a cold sweet mango lassi drink. Mango lassi has always been my to-order drink when I go to Indian restaurants and it’s so easy for you to enjoy at home too.

Soy Milk is very much part of a Malaysian’s diet (or any where in South Asia). During childhood, I used to drink lots soy milk and adding soy milk to tau fu fa (soy custard) brought from street stalls. There was even a mobile motorcycle stall coming to my neighbourhood, where we would just open our backyard door to get fresh soy milk and tau fu fa. Yes we were spoilt rotten. My mama used to tell me how soy milk was grinding manually using a stone grinder.. that to me was hard labour. Continue Reading →
