Nahm @ COMO Metropolitan Bangkok

We’ve been traveling to Thailand so frequent the past couple of months that we considered ourselves all “Thai’d up” already from the amount of Thai food we’ve been feeding on. But when in Thailand, eat we must! I wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity for an exquisite dining experience. This trip, I’ve booked for Nahm Bangkok, another one of Asia’s best restaurants (No.5 in 2017 by S. Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, and awarded one Michelin-star). I was really looking forward to it.

Sushi Azabu @ Isetan The Japan Store, Kuala Lumpur

Wow! We’ve finally dined in Sushi Azabu at Isetan The Japan Store. So much I’ve read about this New York-based (Michelin starred) sushi den but never once step foot until recently. It was a very special experience because this was the very first time Mr Gadget had ever taken me to an omakase sushi restaurant. This was also his first ever to one since he’s still not used to the idea of raw meat/ fish. Well, the good thing is he’s pretty adventurous with food, although burgers and pizza will always be his first choice. I was contented he’d actually suggested to take me there since I’m the one who loves a good sashimi and sushi. Continue reading “Sushi Azabu @ Isetan The Japan Store, Kuala Lumpur”

Baan Vartika at Ping @ Chiang Mai, Thailand


They say December’s the best time to travel Chiang Mai. I couldn’t agree more. It had always been in my top cities in South East Asia to visit. I’ve heard so much about the cool weather between November to February, and it’s even better to visit during a festive season. Besides the awesome weather, the must-see temples, and the spas, Chiang Mai is also famous for its laid-back life and café culture. All the reasons for our six nights stay where we ended 2017 and welcomed 2018.

SOU Omakase Dining @ The Gardens Mall, Kuala Lumpur

What an honour to be invited by SOU Omakase Dining to try their special limited menu for this month, where fresh ingredients were imported from Azumino Ikeda, Nagano in Japan. It was really an interesting session and I did learn more about Japanese food, other than the usual sashimi and sushi I normally have. I also felt privileged that Tomoko-san was there to introduce all the dishes and explained the slightest details of the ingredients used.

After You Durian @ Siam Paragon, Bangkok

I still can’t believe I actually took up the courage and walked into After You Durian, especially I never liked it as a kid. I even cried whenever my relatives bought them since I knew my mom was gonna force me to eat them just because they were “good for health”. And that smell, goshhhh!! I really bei tahan (cannot stand)!! Trust me, I still gave it a try a few years ago to see if I’d actually change my mind about the King of fruits, but I still didn’t. Those who love durian must be questioning what I don’t like about it. OK you see, the pungent aroma is not something I appreciate. It makes me uncomfortable and gives me a headache (did you think I was just exaggerating?!). Then the mushy texture that looks like cream filling/ whipped cream. Those that I would scrape off my cake before eating them because I absolutely dislike it. Hence, I would avoid by any chance and if I could smell it from meters away.

Issaya Siamese Club Thailand @ Bangkok

I was very reluctant to visit Bangkok again for the past few years due to some unpleasant experiences in the past. But all those have been erased after our recent trip, and all I can think of now is “when are we going back there again?!”. It was meant to be a work trip but somehow turned into a gluttony weekend as we did so much eating! There’s heaps of good food I couldn’t resist! Don’t ask me what happened to the work part though. It’s a stressful and long story, so that makan weekend was well deserved. Mr Gadget also thought he could spoil us to a fancy Thai dinner instead of just street food and cafés.  I did a bit of research and landed at Issaya Siamese Club.

Saturday Night Vibes @ Shook! Starhill Gallery KL

When I received the invitation to join Shook! KL for an evening of feasting and entertainment, the words that quickly caught my attention were free flow, Bollinger Champagne, and buffet. Before I go on telling you how awesome their buffet and beverage packages are, let me ask if words like champagne, oysters, and live music tickle your fancy? ‘Cause they definitely do to me!! If your answer is similar to mine, then you’re definitely going to enjoy Saturday Night Vibes – Cirque Du Culinaire experience at Shook! in Starhill Gallery.

Aroi Mak Mak @ Section 17, Petaling Jaya

Thai people are not only famous for their warm and friendly hospitality, but also their amazing food. So far, I haven’t heard of anyone who doesn’t enjoy Thai food or Thai dessert at least. The distinct flavours and exotic spices used in Thai dishes really do thrill your taste buds. As a Malaysian, I could easily relate my love for Thai food because Thailand and Malaysia are neighbouring countries. Some of the food served in local restaurants are somewhat an influence of Thai cuisine.  My ultimate favourite has to be Tom Yum. Any Thai restaurant that serves awesome Tom Yum, I’m sold. Oh, not to mention it’s a great hangover remedy too! My other favourites also include Pad Thai, Som Tam, Massaman Curry, Moo Ping, Mango Sticky Rice, etc… OMG! I’m salivating already!  Continue reading “Aroi Mak Mak @ Section 17, Petaling Jaya”

Things To Do in San Francisco

At the beginning, I wasn’t sure about taking a long haul flight just for a short 5 nights stay in San Francisco. I’ve never been to the States, so I had to go through the whole mafan (troublesome) process of getting a U.S. visa in a short time frame since it was a last minute decision. The whole thought of it also made me sooooo malas (lazy). Of course, Mr Gadget did a very good job in convincing me, as I know he really wanted to take me there! I’m glad I went through all that visa hassle and that 18 hours flight as it was all worthwhile. Continue reading “Things To Do in San Francisco”
