Launch Party: Trulife Collagen Manuka Max

Following my review on TruLife Collagen Manuka Max, I had the pleasure of attending the launch party for this amazing new contender in the collagen market! The launch was held last Friday, 4 March, at the homely Two Bakers Cafe on Horne Road, just opposite the Jalan Besar Stadium. Upon arrival, we were greeted by this gorgeous dessert bar!Continue reading “Launch Party: Trulife Collagen Manuka Max”

[Kuala Lumpur] Toast And Roast

If like me, you had imagined ‘Toast and Roast’ to be a brightly lit cafe with piping toasts and artisan coffees, then you’re in a surprise. KL’s Toast and Roast is a distinctly traditional coffee-shop serving old-school teas, best-for-a-hangover hot Honey-Lemons, chewy Hakka noodles, bouncy beef ball soup, and what they became famous for – roast pork / chicken. When yourContinue reading “[Kuala Lumpur] Toast And Roast”

[TAIPEI] oo3. Foodporn Ahead

When in Taipei, eat your way through Shih-Lin Night Market! We started off with these super yummy beef brisket noodles Then tracked down the legendary Ah Zong Mian Xian Had a handful of super good Sheng Jian Bao (pan-fried pork buns) And of course, BUBBLE TEA!! This ginormous wild (farmhouse) mountain chicken totally caught ourContinue reading “[TAIPEI] oo3. Foodporn Ahead”

Lori’s Diner, San Francisco

Breakfast at Lori’s Diner on Mason Street, a ’50s-style rock’n’roll American bistro. For the all-American oldies experience, this is the place to be! Love their classic red booths, checkered tiles and memorabilia of Coca-Cola, Elvis Presley and various cars of the era. All of Lori’s Diners are open 24 hours daily; the Lori’s on PowellContinue reading “Lori’s Diner, San Francisco”

Pure Waffle, Duke St London

As mentioned previously, I had major unresolved cravings for waffles. Whilst everyone else went shopping at SOHO, I slinked into the stylish, contemporary waffle parlour to have the Pecan & Butterscotch Waffle with Ice Cream for lunch. The store manager Andy was extremely friendly and chatted with me! He commented on the books I wasContinue reading “Pure Waffle, Duke St London”

KULA Ice Cream Parlour & Coffee Bar

To satisfy the major cravings I had for waffles, I googled “Best Waffles in Central London”. This Swedish gem of a café turned up multiple times in the search engine and I decided to hunt it down! Jet lag woke me up at 5am hence I was ravenous! KULA opens at 8am. I took theContinue reading “KULA Ice Cream Parlour & Coffee Bar”

Globalization is…

…having Hong Kong crispy duck for supper, grilled Frankfurters on a bun for lunch, and Thai rice noodles (phad si eiw) with Tom Yam-based steamboat and crispy chicken green curry for dinner. All these along the same stretch of restaurants in a town village of Germany! Not to mention having our fair share of theContinue reading “Globalization is…”

[MELBOURNE] oo2. Caffe e Torta

Upon touchdown I had managed to catch a good nights’ sleep (albeit, due to time difference, it was 3am Melbourne time when I finally crashed), and even woke up for hotel breakfast early next morning. Late afternoon, I ventured into the CBD area with hopes of locating Hardware Societe which was further out past Collins Street,Continue reading “[MELBOURNE] oo2. Caffe e Torta”

Baker’s Terrace in Perth

Australia is my favourite stopover for minced meat pies and squishy meat pastries!! For my airport-bound breakfast, I filled my tummy with this juicy chicken and veggie pot pie. It wasn’t altogether to-die-for because seriously I’ve had better meat pies from Pie Face or downtown Brisbane’s steak pie joints, but I’m a happy girl afterContinue reading “Baker’s Terrace in Perth”

[THAILAND] oo5.H Bistro @ Hansar Samui

I’m hella fortunate to have Thai friends who know all the best hideouts and dining places. While waiting for a couple more friends to touchdown in Koh Samui, we dined at the beachfront H Bistro at Hansar Resort. Its French Mediterranean menu boasts the likes of grilled Hokkaido Scallops, pan-roasted Miyazaki sirloin, smoked duck prosciutto,Continue reading “[THAILAND] oo5.H Bistro @ Hansar Samui”

[THAILAND] oo4.Beyond The Sea, Siamese Brasserie

The entire week spent in Koh Samui, we basically feasted all day long on authentic Thai food and fresh-from-the-ocean seafood. The high tides plus bad weather made it nearly impossible for water-sports, so we cancelled our initial plans to take the open-sea scuba-diving license exams. On our first morning we drove to ShaSa Resort forContinue reading “[THAILAND] oo4.Beyond The Sea, Siamese Brasserie”

Costa Coffee and Travel Woes

Woes of a traveller: sometimes you’re bound to crave familiar and comforting sights or foods!! Costa Coffee is one of those lighthouses I’m always happy to see in foreign lands, along with Starbucks and Boots. At the moment, they have gingerbread coffee coolers and lattes as their festive drinks, which I find none too amazing.Continue reading “Costa Coffee and Travel Woes”
