This will be last of my cooking adventures for a while. I think the most fun was actually the cooking itself even though I often ended up eating the same dish two days in a row. The trials of cooking for a single person! Work is piling up and once again, the convenience of eating out is pulling me back out of the house. The good news though is that I’ll be going on a short holiday soon, so I’m quite excited to document my eating adventures then. Continue reading
It’s easy to get intimidated with dishes consisting of many different ingredients, but trust me, this was a really easy dish to make. Perfect for those busy evenings when all you want is to eat quickly. Today was one of those days where everything seems to go wrong. Class ended late, the MRT BROKE DOWN so I ended up taking a long detour home. Thankfully, the supermarket wasn’t so crowded, so I’m was in and out within 10 minutes. Once I got home, I was so hungry that I immediately started cracking… Continue reading
When I was student in Auckland and staying in a hostel, there were times when my friends and I would be so tired of hostel meals that we would head down to the city for dinner. Eating out in Auckland is not cheap compared to eating out in Singapore. However, I will always be forever grateful to the ethnic Korean and Chinese restaurants that sprung up around the city. They provided an opportunity for us homesick Asians to fulfill our rice and noodle cravings. They were also priced very reasonably and proved very popular among students living in the city.

It’s quite tough to write an encore review for a restaurant that you’ve already visited previously. The exception being if I end up trying something entirely new that gives a new reason to emphasize once more, why its worth visiting the restaurant. Continue reading
I confess that I am not a morning person. At all. If I’m up early, it means that I probably have an early class or I’m not feeling well. Hence, breakfast always inevitably becomes brunch for me. Furthermore, I’m not a huge fan on starting the day with a huge meal. If anything, lunch or dinner is the main big meal for me. My breakfasts/brunch tend to be a quick snack and I run off doing whatever it is I have to do. Continue reading
The cooking adventures continue.
I’ve decided that if I can, I would try to use the oven as little as I possible. The exception being that if my pan frying skills are indeed so bad that I keep drying out the protein. Thankfully, so far I’ve been quite lucky in my cooking experiments. It also means less cleaning up (Yay!) Continue reading
I’m hinted once or twice before that I’m a big fan of reality cooking television shows. In particular, Masterchef US and Top Chef are my favourites. Of course, the drama is entertaining, but I find that I often pick up a tip or two from watching these shows. Tips which I remember and try to use when time allows me the privilege of cooking. Continue reading
It’s great this whole week to have the kitchen to myself. Parents are out of town and my siblings don’t cook, like ever. It really gives me the chance to cook and try out new recipes for myself, which I find quite therapeutic at times. However, things don’t always work out the way you want them to. Continue reading
Pork ribs soup was one of the first dishes A thought me how to cook when I was living overseas.
“Making soup is so easy…” she used to say “Just put a bit of herbs and the meat and its done.” Continue reading
Was planning L’s surprise birthday party and Sopra looked like a nice, private, comfy place for us to meet up. None of us had ever been there before, but it’s central location in Orchard made it an easy choice. It’s also hard to go wrong with Italian cuisine since most people enjoy it, even those with special dietary restrictions. Continue reading
