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!

This was a rocking Carlsberg event, […]

The 8th Venezuelan Week 2013, Kuala Lumpur

I’ve never been to Venezuela, but I know that while other South American countries are romanticized for the Tango, Machu Picchu or Carnaval, Venezuela’s allure comes from Andean Peaks, the longest stretch of the Caribbean coastline, plus an entire bevy of international beauty pageant winners that have sprung from her loins. I also know it’s […]

Gu Yue Tien @ Chulan Square, Kuala Lumpur

As the faint sound of a sizzle of meat made it’s way to our ears, the air smelled of smoke, garlic and pork fat. Pork is a beautiful thing.. in a sweet succulent brined pork chop way, or in a smoky, falling off the cracker, dry-cured parma ham way. It’s delicious as a rillette with […]

Where did I put my Golden Phoenix?

The fundementals of a perfect dimsum experience are these.. a comfortable dining hall, large buzzing crowds including multigenerational Chinese families all seated and crammed into one huge table, gathered around a big, lazy susan, and everyone talks at the top of their voices and has something better to say than the next person. A silence […]

Tea Tasting with Ronnefeldt at the Ritz-Carlton KL

The three tier afternoon tea set over-flowing with freshly baked scones, quiches, mouth-watering finger sandwiches and delicate pastries is a sight to behold. My tummy rumbled, but first, the serious […]
