La Scala, Jalan Mayang KL

Named after Milan’s famed opera house, La Scala is every inch as grand and impressive as that iconic building in Italy.

An Incredibly Sweet Chinese New Year at Gu Yue Tien

Chef Frankie Woo’s food is always a delight to eat. And this chef never ceases to amaze me with his knack for coming up with exciting and innovative dishes for Gu Yue Tien.

Dinner with Chef Malcolm Goh @ Samplings on the 14th

A Pot full of Prosperity … at Di Wei, Empire Subang

Apart from tossing the Yee Sang, another great dish I always look forward to during Chinese Near Year is the Poon Choy.
