An afternoon with Dan Buckle & Chandon

If you’ve never heard of the Eight Gourmets Gala (EGG) in Sunway, join the club. Most places in Sunway are foreign to me anyway, and this being a new place and all, doubly so. Anyway, the reason I whipped out the GPS to find this location was to attend a Chandon Lunch as well as Cocktail Masterclass […]

Hilton KL’s Modern Ramadan Bazaar at Vasco

How time flies. And it is unbelievable that Ramadan is nearly upon us once more. For this year, instead of writing about an entire list of places to “buka puasa” at, we will just zero in on a few – mainly the ones we like, and we think are best value for money. Which brings […]

Heavenly Hunan Cuisine @ Chynna Hilton KL with Guest Chef Wang

Ah.. the spice loving Hunan race. Wasn’t it Chairman Mao who said,  “You can’t be a revolutionary if you don’t eat chilies.” Yes, indeed, the great man, Mao Zedong himself was Hunan, which probably explained his fiery spirit. And now, Hunan’s fervid dishes, come to KL.

“An Evening of Indulgence” – the Launch of Double Gold

What an unexpected surprise and honor to have been flown in specifically for the grand launch of Double Gold, in Yangon Myanmar! In less than 12 hours boarding the plane, we found ourselves at the swanky downtown bar in Yangon, called Union Bar. The entire place was gleaming in Gold.. rather apt we thought for […]

Sunday Brunch @ Rendez-Vous

Brunch is something I look forward to on weekends, like how a devout Catholic looks forward to Sunday Mass. I mean, saying I like brunch a whole lot, would be an understatement. And did you know that in many cities around the globe, brunch is a bit of an institution? Yup. Weekends are precious and […]

Torii @ Jalan Batai, Damansara Heights

Although yakitori actually means grilled chicken, served on skewers, these days that time-honored working-class Japanese food is taken beyond its usual place, with all manner of meats, vegetables and other delicacies finding their way on to the grill, on sticks. Which brings us to Torii. Torii on Jalan Batai, Damansara Heights, we read, would be […]

Dining like a Maharani @ Passage Thru India

Here’s something we hear rather often. “I like Indian food, but I don’t eat it enough.” If you’re one of those people, who doesn’t automatically think Indian cuisine when you’re eating out, join the club. But that recently all changed when we chanced to to walk into Passage Thru India several weekends ago, after a […]

Kogetsu @ Saujana

There’s definitely no shortage of Japanese restaurants in KL, but sometimes, the older establishments, are still the best. Well, in our books anyway. Kogetsu at Saujana Hotel in Subang, is one of those terrific places we totally adore visiting over and over again. Sashimi Moriawase – Deluxe Assorted Raw Fish

The Asian African Carnival 2015, Bandung

After traveling around Bandung and exploring all the land had to offer, it was time to witness, a street carnival. The Asian African Carnival 2015. I could not wait to see how the folks of Bandung would carry this off. A street carnival no less, starting from Simpang Lima area, the east side of Asia […]

Top 10 Ways to Experience Bandung

I used to think that Bandung was only famous for its shopping. But many years ago, when both me and the hubs arrived to discover the secrets of Java, I realized it was much more than just retail bargains. For we soon fell in love with the people, the land, and its cuisine. Java’s high […]

IMG_20150418_191405

Touch down Hamburg, and still a little dazed from my 15 hour flight from Kuala Lumpur. I was happy though that I was headed towards a rather interesting hotel, which would be home for the next two days. Incidentally, if you have a couple of days in Hamburg, here are some exciting things you can […]
