Cloudy Bay with Jim White, at Prego KL

Cloudy Bay’s Sauvignon Blanc reminds me of sunshine in a bottle.. aromas and flavours of elderflower, green lime zest, stone fruit come to mind when I think of their Sauv Blancs. And who can resist a palate that’s ripe, fine and succulent, offering zesty ripe citrus.. ah, not me! Each year the Cloudy Bay vineyard releases its […]

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, […]

Hwan by Chakri

Hwan means ‘sweet’ in Thai. But whilst some Thai desserts might tend toward the decorative, the sticky, and the cloyingly sweet, Hwan, is more of a no frills kind of dessert joint, and the desserts thankfully are not overly sweet. tab tim grob

Norwegian Seafood Gala Dinner 2014

We are no strangers to the Norwegian Seafood Gala dinner, held as a yearly affair, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, KL. This year itself had a few pleasant surprises. The celebrity chef entourage was one of them.

Saturday Spanish Alcohol and Food Buffet at Sentidos

I’ve always walked past Sentidos at the Starhill gallery but never had the chance to visit the place. Now, with their current “Live the Life” promotion going on, i.e. Viva la Vida, I could hardly resist the opportunity to check out its Spanish Tapas. Viva La Vida occurs every Saturday night (8-10pm) and it’s a […]

Robata Monkey @ Jaya 1

Ramen, Sushi Bars or Yakitori joints, are all well established in the average gourmet’s Japanese food vocabulary, but robatayaki, well that’s another one altogether. So where can one go, to fill up on tasty meats, seafood and vegetable dishes served fresh off the grill? Where small portions of meat, fish or vegetables are slow-grilled to […]

Oktoberfest @ The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur

October is definitely one of the months I look forward to, simply because it is a beer guzzling month! Oktoberfest was in full swing at the RP Entertainment Centre (The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur) yet again this year with even more traditional German music, bratwurst and steins of beer. This was a rocking Carlsberg event, […]

Delectable Florals by Delectable Su

I think I just died and went to buttercream heaven. It’s no secret that both me and Cumi are crazy about old-school buttercream cakes. The sort we grew up on and ate as kids, especially after school, if we had been particularly bright that week, and our parents wanted to rewards us. And these days […]

Cape Mentelle Degustation with Cameron Murphy @ Tanzini

Cape Mentelle wines are one of our favourites from Margaret River, not just because they excite our palates, but because while they are highly drinkable, they are affordable as well. When we visited the south-west corner of Australia 3 years ago, we thoroughly enjoyed some of the best wine we’d ever taste. And it is […]

Austrian Wine & Dine, with Chef Gottfried Prantl

The amazingly versatile wines of Austria must have long been a secret that they guard jealously, or that only wine connoisseurs know about. Because up till now, I surely did not know too much myself. And I am so glad, that I finally experienced them in all their glory.  I can see now, why their […]

Frankland Estate Wine Appreciation @ Saujana

Recently, we’d been hearing more and more about the wines from Fran­k­land Estate, located just south of Perth – famed for displaying finesse and balance, all the hallmarks of cool climate wine growing. This modest vineyard was estab­lished in 1988 by Bar­rie Smith and Judi Cul­lam, and currently is managed by daughter Eliz­a­beth Smith and […]
