Meal for Two: S’mores, Bangsar South

The Moomin’s eye doctor is located at Nexus Bangsar South, so I’ve been hanging around the neighbourhood a lot lately (her eye is much better now, but we’ve been doing follow-ups regularly because it wasn’t healing as quickly as it should due to age). On one of these follow-ups, we checked into S’mores for lunch. The place has been around since Nexus opened and touts … Continue reading Meal for Two: S’mores, Bangsar South

Ying Jia Dimsum and Seafood Restaurant, Happy Garden KL

Strangers at 47, SS17 Petaling Jaya – Sweet and Savoury Crepes

Living in the Klang Valley, there are plenty of cool and chic cafes to check out every other week. But competition is pretty fierce, and if you don’t have something to draw in the crowds (like good food, impeccable service and an Instagrammable interior), you’re likely to fold just as quickly as you set up shop.

How To Gain Weight: CNY Edition

KFC Malaysia Released A “Zero Chicken Burger” – But It’s Not Vegan / Vegetarian-Friendly

You know what KFC is without the chicken? Just KF. …. Okay lame. In all seriousness, woke up today and KFC’s icon on Facebook had turned green. Malaysians being Malaysians, there were many ‘mak kau hijau’ and ‘bila masa KFC dah join PAS ni?’ jokes.
