St Hallett Wines at Cristallo

Exquisite French, with Chef Thierry @ Maison Francaise

There’s a new Chef in the house. And I cannot help but ogle at the food he lays out before me. And I think many would agree with me, food blogger or otherwise. Sometimes your food photo shoot almost resembles a porn shoot. For example, you battle traffic, and drive all the way to KL, […]

Viva La Vida occurs every Saturday night (8-10pm) and it’s a […]
