All About Good Food & Good Company

The thing I love about today is that it was all about good food & good company. To protect the privacy of my friends, no names will be mentioned… but you will soon see from my photos that we had a FEAST enough to feed an entire soccer team! Ok maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit, but it truly was a lot of food and we had plenty of leftovers and everyone went home really, really full … 🙂 I hope this is not becoming a typical Sunday otherwise hubby and I will end up really fat really quick, lol. … Continue reading All About Good Food & Good Company

Dad’s Assam Fish Head Curry Recipe

Hey everyone. Ever since I got back from Malaysia a week ago, I have fallen sick most possibly due to the drastic change in weather.. from a really hot and humid tropical weather in Malaysia, to the first signs of winter in Melbourne.

But I do know based on my poll results, comments and some requests via Twitter and ChatBox that you guys enjoy seafood and a lot of you enjoy … Continue reading Dad’s Assam Fish Head Curry Recipe

Jalan Jalan Cari Makan in Kuala Lumpur

When I left Kuching, I had a stopover in Kuala Lumpur (KL) for a night. I was staying with a friend, and my cousin was kind enough to pick me up from the airport and take me shopping and later on we had dinner with 2 of my friends at Chilis @ 1 Utama Shopping Mall. I figured I have had too much Asian food the past 12 days in Kuching.. and I felt the need to ease back into Aussie life. Nah, just kidding. I JUST WANTED SOME BEEF RIBS!!! Pretty random, I know.. but Chilis ended up being … Continue reading Jalan Jalan Cari Makan in Kuala Lumpur

It has been amazing to be back in my hometown, and yes I have gained weight but I will worry about exercising and diet-ing it off when I get back to Melbourne. How often do I get to come back right? Hhmmm… you probably won’t see me post a recipe for a while even though I’ll be back in my kitchen, unless it’s a low fat healthy recipe :p So last night, I went out with my friends … Continue reading Kuching Food Adventures Part 7 – The End
