Kampung Daun

Eating at Kampung Daun is such a special experience that I would seriously urge you not to miss, if you ever visit Bandung. This outdoor restaurant is huge, with different-sized bamboo huts scattered all over amidst greeneries and streams, and you get to enjoy authentic, traditional, delicious Sundanese food in the midst of nature.

Bread Street Kitchen

I can’t say I’m a fan of Gordon Ramsay like both my sisters are (I find him needlessly loud and a tad too dramatic), but I admit my curiosity got the better of me when he opened Bread Street Kitchen in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. Is he, and by extension all the celebrity chefs that…

SELA

A few weekends ago, we went and had lunch at SELA, a modern Asian-European restaurant at 32 Seah Street, Singapore. First of all, I need it to be known that I do not consider myself a food critic, not least because when it comes to food, nine times out of ten, I go for tried-and-true home recipes…

My Weekend Uniform, Part 3

We celebrated my birthday earlier this year with a fancy BBQ lunch at Gyu-Kaku, Chijmes. Spending the weekend with my sister is always fun, and who doesn’t enjoy trying food at a new restaurant they’ve never been to before, hoping to find a gem? Gyu-Kaku’s wagyu beef was wonderfully juicy and tender, so the fact…

I Want My Noodle

Despite the proximity of the two cities (it takes less than 2 hours to fly between Singapore and Jakarta), it is impossible to find the kind of noodles you get to eat in Jakarta here in Singapore, a constant source of frustration for me and the reason why I eat more than I should every…

Hai Di Lao Hot Pot

One of our favourite places to eat in Singapore has got to be the Hai Di Lao Hot Pot. If you’re not familiar with the concept of steamboat or hot pot restaurant, which is common in South East Asia, you basically order a type of soup and various ingredients to go into the soup! It is…

Gong Cha

I thought I’d share with you one of the things I missed about Singapore when I was living in Australia: Gong Cha’s bubble tea. Gong Cha prides itself on natural, healthy, freshly brewed tea, but it also sells coffee and fruit juices. Their best drink, in my opinion (and I am a tea drinker), is…

The Line at Shangri-La Hotel

The Line always makes it to any food blogger’s list of top buffet restaurants in Singapore, but because of its steep price (be prepared to spend close to SGD 100 per adult, or more if you include champagne, wine, and beer in your buffet), we never got around to trying it. Until recently, when we…

Lunch at the Atrium

I don’t say this enough, but I love spending time with my family. With the exception of a handful of close friends, my family are the only people I can truly open up to. There is no need for pleasantries, no expectation to ensure a continuous flow of conversation, and no pressure to be anyone…

Brunch @ Symmetry

Usually work has blasted my entire energy that I normally stay in on weekends for some “me” time. “Me” time can consist of binge-watching the earlier seasons of ’24’, sleeping in only to wake up for meals (I know you’re judging me), or simply just spending time with the boyfriend whom I don’t get to…
