Grandpa loves to give away his papayas (pardon the pun) everything I visit. and I’ve made many visit since last year, hence papaya overload. He has 3 papaya trees in his backyard which he is extremely proud of. I do not understand why he loves planting just papaya and sugar apple trees in his huge backyard, I love other fruits too like mango, rambutan and passion fruits. Maybe I’ll sneak in a mango tree next time I’m back.
Last weekend, I took back an unripe (green) papaya to make Som Tam (Thai Green Papaya Salad). Continue Reading →

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.

When pomegranates are RM6-Rm7 (USD2) a pop, it’s not strange that it’s not fruits for the masses. When I saw some Thai pomegranates at 5 for RM10, I quickly grab them. They are not as sweet or as deep ruby red like the mediterranean ones, but they are still good enough for me. Continue Reading →
