A few weeks back, my good friend R rang me up to rant. His cousin who have major health issues with 3 stents placed in his arteries (stents are tubes placed into blocked arteries to help the blood flow) and very overweight. R encouraged his cousin to start with short routine exercise as R have lost a lot of weight by doing so. Cousin’s wife reply: No time to exercise. Continue Reading →
Every now and then, I do crave for rich & creamy desserts like cheesecakes. When I do come across recipes I like, I try to make the recipes lighter & healthier. The baked cheesecake requires patience (which I don’t have when it comes to baking) and lots of spare time. This is a quick and simple no-bake dessert that is slightly healthier, that you would happily indulge. And doesn’t these No Bake Ricotta Cheescake Bites with Pecan Base and colourful toppings make a pretty dessert? Continue Reading →
Everyone loves Nutella, especially my sister CM. She would eat nutella by the spoonfuls.. so I thought why don’t I make a homemade healthier version for her with real good quality ingredients.

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 →
My friend Ash couldn’t stop gushing about raw food after she came back from the 2 weeks Inner Dance Raw Food Retreat in Philippines. She was so radiant and full of energy. When food is eaten raw, our body will also absorb the life force of the food at its raw state and hence giving us more energy. I look forward to Ash bringing the Raw Food workshop to KL in August.

To me, the greatest birthday gift is another year of life… the gift of being alive and surrounded by wonderful people – family, friends and supporters. I could not have asked for anything more.
34 years of learning, fun, mistakes, and some accidents. Some of these lessons it took me 5 minutes to learn, others… a lifetime.. Here’s some of my life lessons. Continue Reading →
With all the unnecessary worry and stress the past weeks, I took some time off to be with the nature – frolicking in the river, lazing around doing nothing and finally managed to finish a book after many years! After a relaxing weekend, this girl still need her snacking habit fixed and came up with an inspiration of Homemade Peanut Butter Cups.
Jamie Oliver claimed this Baked Chocolate Pudding is chocolate heaven is his cookbook Jamie’s Kitchen. And I couldn’t agree more! I’ve been eyeing this Baked Chocolate Pudding recipe for months now but time was never right until last week. My chocolate cravings had shot through the roof!
After yesterday’s Apple Starfruit Spiced Crisp post, it got me thinking about other stashed away recipes that I added spices to.. and got me digging.. This post must be sitting in my draft folder – in a misery, because it was long forgotten.
So here I present: Spiced Chocolate Almond Butter.. Continue Reading →
