Kimchi pancakes

Kimchi Pancake

My interested in Korean culture (and food) begins with the first episode of Dae Jang Geum (Jewel In The Palace), a super popular K-drama about a palace made who became the first female imperial doctor.

Kaduk Omelette

Kaduk Omelette

Since I started gardening, I realise that there are plenty of local herbs and vegetables that we have forgotten. Have you heard of Indian Borage or Daun Kaduk? Perhaps their lack of popularity makes them hardly available in the market. It’s such as pity as they are incredibly flavourful and rich in nutrient too. Read: …

Yoghurt With Nangka & Gula Melaka

Imagine thick creamy yoghurt sweeten with fragrant gula melaka and topped with grilled sweet nangka. Oh, it’s the perfect blend of flavour and texture – sweet and  sour, creamy and chewy…I’ve first tasted this dessert at a hipster cafe in Georgetown, Penang.

Indian Borage Herbal Tea

Indian Borage Herbal Tea

I’ve have a small apartment garden at home. It began with only three air-filtering plants which I purchased not only to improve the quality of air at home, but to ease my tired eyes due to too much screen time. Eventually, my little garden grew. I bought succulents and cactuses. I had common herbs like coriander and …

Citrus Fat Burner Juice

One of the easiest way to get more fruits and vegetables in our body is through drinking juices. Since I bought a wide-mouth cold juicer, my consumption of fruits and vegetables has increased. I love putting all kinds of fruits into the juicer and enjoy freshly extracted goodness. In Sara Ding’s ‘Juicing For Health’ book, I …

passion fruit & plum drink

Passion Fruit & Plum Drink

Passion fruits are not easy to come by in some supermarkets so I don’t think of them much. Until I stopped by at a small town in Bentong selling packets of passion fruit, did I learned that they are locally grown. The passion fruit and plum drink I had there was so refreshing! Since then, …

Homemade Vegetable Stock

Ever since reading all about the goodness of bone broth, I’ve been adding a lot more homemade broth into my diet and reducing use of store-bought stock in cubes. I make a huge batch during the weekend, freeze them and use them in my soups, congee, rice, noodles and other dishes. I must admit that …

Sago Pudding Gula Melaka

Sago Pudding With Gula Melaka

Sago Gula Melaka is one of my top favourite Malaysian desserts. I love the texture of the chewy pearl sago that is drenched in combination of sweet gula melaka (palm sugar) and fragrant santan (coconut milk). Curiously, unlike the omnipresent cendol or ice-kacang, this dessert is not widely available in Malaysian eateries. Especially the fact …
