Celebrating Chinese New Year In The Middle Of A Pandemic

Chinese New Year, also called the Lunar New Year, is set to fall on 12 February this year.

Food Galore – Chinese New Year in Ipoh 2019

It’s a little worrying that at barely 30, I’m already having trouble remembering things, lol. There’s just an overload of information coming in on a daily basis that it’d be impossible to function without clearing up some ‘space’. Which is why it’s so important for me to keep blogging, no matter how busy I get. How else can I look back on what I’ve been … Continue reading Food Galore – Chinese New Year in Ipoh 2019

Review: Delight Seafood Restaurant, Kampung Jawa Ipoh

Happy Chinese New Year, folks! Celebrations have been quiet ever since my grandmother passed away. I read somewhere that matriarchs/patriarchs of a family act like glue, holding the fam together.

Review: I Tried The New McDonalds Fish Prosperity Burger

*January 2019 has got to be the month with the least amount of blog posts. A measly three 😦 I’d love to put up more but I’m always so exhausted / uninspired / too busy. It’s unlikely I’ll have more time in the coming months but a girl’s gotta try, right?  So Chinese New Year is just around the corner and McDonalds has brought back … Continue reading Review: I Tried The New McDonalds Fish Prosperity Burger

Food Review: Chinese New Year Menu @ Tuck Kee Restaurant, Ipoh

If it were up to me, I’d do away with the banquet-style meal for Chinese New Year. I mean, it’s more about having a meal with the fam and bonding, right? We can do that just as well with pizza and a bucket of KFC at home, like the Japanese do for Christmas lol. But I digress. On the second day of Chinese New Year, … Continue reading Food Review: Chinese New Year Menu @ Tuck Kee Restaurant, Ipoh
