Recently, I was on NTV7 Breakfast Show to share some of the ways to mix & match your own favourite flavours with plain yogurt. If you hardly eat plain yogurt, you are missing out on the various delicious ways to enjoy yogurt. I always have a tub of homemade yogurt in my fridge.. Yogurt is so versatile, can be used as a snack, breakfast, dessert or even in dishes.
As I was about to make the Mango Sago Dessert, a light bulb went off.. one of my AHA moments. Don’t you love AHA moments? There are times when my creative juice is way low or brain just freezes over. AHA moments with inspiration like this are always welcomed. 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 →
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 →

My trip with mama to Pulau Pangkor 3 weeks ago was truly fun and relaxing. As mama always have a busy mind, I was afraid a trip with nothing to do except relaxing on the beach would be boring for mama. Glad that mama looked relaxed and enjoyed herself on the beautiful island filled with idyllic fishing villages. Continue Reading →
Durian Pancake is a very popular dessert in Southeast Asian countries – Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore (and also in Hong Kong). Most durian lovers will fall in love with this pancake on the first bite, just like me. Durian – coined as The King of Fruits by most Asians, whilst some people totally can’t stand the smell of it. It’s one of the food where you either love it or hate it Continue Reading →
Is everyone more excited about the vibrant fresh produce in my previous post? There’s more to the Inner Food Journey..
In 4 days, we made more than 40 raw recipes, enough for a newbie like me to have a whole month of daily raw dishes.. from Breakfast to Desserts, from Japanese sushi to Bombay Curry. What I love is that most of the recipes are easy to follow (even a child can do it, just need a lot of chopping) and related to our Asian diet. The dish that got everyone going back for more are Vegetable Lagsana and Chinese Lo Mein, however I would reserve Vegetable Lagsana only for special occasion (it’s just too much work).

Last month, I was fortunate to be asked to assist in the Journey to Inner Food Workshop, conducted by Daniw Arrazola (the co-founder of Bahay Kalipay - a healing & detox retreat center in Pahlawan, Philippines). From buying ingredients to sourcing for kitchen equipments, it has been an enriching journey. Never have I shopped for almost RM2,000 worth of fresh produce and ingredients!
With the initial thought that it’s a food raw preparation workshop, I was in for a surprise. Before you give me the “sour face”, give yourself the benefit of a doubt and read on..
Time sure flies.. and it’s already one year into blogging. It’s a year of personal growth, lots of joy and some tears, this blog has been a very fulfilling journey for me, something I have not felt in a long time. I’m really proud of what I’ve achieved with this new hobby – be it cooking or photography. Occasionally, mama would ask “Why are you spending so much time with cooking new recipes and taking photos?” Being a typical asian mother that has gone through a hard life, she is always concerned about spending time on activities that does not translate into income generation. Mama, not everything is about money. Continue Reading →
