The Day I Lost My Baby

It is such a blessing to be celebrating Grace's birthday again. She will be eight this year and time really flies. Usually at this time I will get motherly mollycoddling attacks and go through all of Grace's old baby photos with rojak feelings of happiness, regret, sadness, jealousy, longing and peace. As you know, Grace is my only child, so I definitely have more time and attention on her than if I were to have more than one kid. And don't hesitate to tell me that she is spoilt too. That said, this post is not really about Grace...

Loopy for Durians

It is no secret we are huge durian lovers. It was a while since the last great durian season (2015) and we were craving for some proper delicious, sweet and creamy goodness. Ever since 2015, the best durian we had was at Bao Sheng Durian Farm in Penang. However even they have a shortage in supply this year and we were also too busy to make the 12 hour drive to Penang.

Bring Sunshine to Your Diet: SunnyChoice Vegetarian

I’m not a complete vegetable, sorry I mean vegetarian, but I like to eat vegetables and occasionally I will have full vegetarian meals because having too much meat in the diet just makes me feel bloated. Usually I will have the typical and economical vegetarian beehoon for breakfast, but as a treat, we would go to Sunnychoice and enjoy a real vegetarian meal. The Bah Kut Teh is my favourite item on the menu. It is savoury, sweet and fragrant. It is not very peppery like the Teochew Bah Kut Teh and more reminiscent of the herbal Bah Kut...

Secret Love: The Geylang Serai Hari Raya Pasar Malam

This is a confession, we are huge lovers of Malay and Indian food. (Chinese food not so much.) I don’t know if it is our preference for stronger tasting food or perhaps we are just tired of the monotony of eating “Chinese-style” food almost every day but the mere mention of curries, rendang, goreng, rojak or kueh definitely will trigger overactive saliva glands. Therefore ever since I moved to Eunos, we have been going to the Geylang Serai Bazaar, which happens every year during the Ramadan period. In fact, we visit it more often than the Chinese New Year bazaar at...
