The Daily Fix, Melaka – Jonker Street’s Most Popular Cafe

As Melaka’s Chinatown, Jonker Street is one of the city’s most popular enclaves, filled with old temples, interesting museums, attractions and cool cafes. Highly recommended is The Daily Fix, a chic establishment hidden at the back of a souvenir shop called Next KK Sdn Bhd. Walk straight to the back of the shop and emerge to an Instagrammer’s dream. The design is reminiscent of British … Continue reading The Daily Fix, Melaka – Jonker Street’s Most Popular Cafe

Hipster Things @ RIUH September 2018

Hey guys! This is a long overdue post, but as the saying goes, better late than never, right? 🙂 When the Boy came to visit KL last month, I brought him to RIUH, a monthly curated platform featuring pop-up stores, food stalls, creative workshops, shows and live performances.

Review: The Cafe that was a Brothel – Merchant’s Lane, Petaling Street Kuala Lumpur

I admit it. Despite this being a (mostly) food blog, I’m not the most up-to-date when it comes to food trends or new cafe openings – there always seems to be new ones mushrooming up somewhere or other, and not enough days to try them out (not to mention… not kind on the wallet. lol). 😀 So even though I’ve heard many good things about … Continue reading Review: The Cafe that was a Brothel – Merchant’s Lane, Petaling Street Kuala Lumpur

In recent years, the city has enjoyed a surge in popularity – especially among the younger crowd – and along with it came … Continue reading Heritage Walk – Concubine Lane & Kong Heng Square, Ipoh

Coffea Coffee IOI Boulevard, Puchong Jaya

Update: This outlet is permanently closed. This might sound blasphemous to ‘real’ coffee lovers, but a couple of years back, Starbucks used to be my go-to-place for drinks (mostly for the chill atmosphere, and also coz I can spend hours there with a laptop with just one drink… yeah I’m cheapo like that). Since then, Starbucks has become so mainstream that going to one now … Continue reading Coffea Coffee IOI Boulevard, Puchong Jaya
