Here in Malaysia, wet markets are more than just places to get fresh ingredients and household essentials – they’re social hubs where people gather to shop or meet friends and neighbours (well, pre-pandemic, at least). This is why you will often find kopitiams and food courts close to or located within a wet market facility. Pasar Baru Bukit Bintang (also known as Imbi Market) was … Continue reading Ginger Wine Noodles: Imbi Pasar Mee Halia @ ICC Pudu, Kuala Lumpur
Mention Mutiara Damansara and most will think of IKEA and The Curve – but venture further in to the housing area and you’ll find a hidden gem, tucked within a quiet suburban spot just next to the Mutiara Damansara police station. Opened two years ago, Mean Mince dishes out American fare the likes of juicy burgers, wings, onion rings and deep dish pizzas, and has … Continue reading Burgers, Wings and American Fare @ Mean Mince, Mutiara Damansara
If you can’t already tell, I am somewhat of a loner. While I enjoy good company in small doses and in intimate settings, large crowds give me anxiety, and I need lots of me-time to recuperate after an extended period of socializing. This is probably why I’m comfortable dining alone: I’ve never really understood why other people would give me the ‘but it’s so sad!’ … Continue reading I Went For A Solo Buffet @ Rocku Yakiniku, 1 Utama
I’ve driven past Buranchi a couple of times before, but never tried it until recently. Suprisingly, it was the Moo who suggested we grab lunch there (she isn’t keen on dining out because of the high number of coronavirus cases here in Selangor). Buranchi is Japanese for brunch, a fitting name for a cafe that specialises in all-day breakfasts and Japanese and Western fusion cuisine. … Continue reading Brunch & Japanese Fare @ Buranchi, Bandar Puteri Puchong
Tonkatsu by Ma Maison is my favourite place to get authentic tonkatsu. I’ve dined at their Publika and USJ Main Place branches before, but never at the original in 1Utama (don’t ask me why – I just never did it lol). Recently I went back to the office to pack, and since the mall is nearby, I stopped by for lunch. It so happened that … Continue reading Tonkatsu by Ma Maison, 1 Utama Celebrates 7th Anniversary – 50% Off All Sets!
As a self-professed bibliophile, bookstores are among my favourite haunts. They’re portals to magical places where the possibilities are endless – and thanks to brands like Book XCess and Kinokuniya, and indie stores like Tintabudi and LitBooks, they’ve become cool lifestyle hubs as well. Now, book lovers can rejoice as they’ll have another place to get lost in literature. Renowned Taiwanese bookstore eslite – known … Continue reading eslite: “World’s Coolest Bookstore” is Coming to Malaysia
It’s not easy to turn your passion into a business, whilst also spreading a positive message in the process. Meet the folks from homegrown creative Loka Made, as they highlight the beauty of Malaysia and its people, one inspiring artwork at a time. When Chong Fei Giap and Audrey Chew first thought of publishing an artbook back in 2015, they never intended to create a … Continue reading Loka Made: A Homegrown Creative Promoting Malaysia Through Art
Hey guys! I hope you’re all doing well in spite of everything. I’ve been feeling uninspired lately. Nothing I write seems to feel right, and I can’t think of ideas. Maybe it’s burn out. I hope it’ll pass. Anyhoo, I still want to post something – so here’s a short and sweet one about brunch at Unicorn 25, a cafe at Skypod Square in Puchong, … Continue reading Brunch @ Unicorn 25, Skypod Square Puchong
