Our home-cooked dinner

These days I jadi macam full-time cook jer. Early morning, cook. Evening, cook. But why am I complaining lah, this IS the job of a stay-at-home-mom what kan? If I don’t cook then stay at home for what? But then again I have not been cooking for the many, many years I have been staying at home :P Kor-Kor is busy upstairs in his room, catching up on homework for the one week that he […]

Skippys Pizza – The real PORK pizza, pasta, burger and ribs

Think PORK pizzas and burgers and one of the first that comes to mind is definitely Skippys. I think it is safe to say most of us know of the first Skippys Pizza in Phileo Damansara 1 that originally started as a delivery and take-away store. That outlet in Phileo in due course accepts dine-in customers too and quickly became popular with the corporate lunch crowd in that area. Last December, Skippys Pizza opened their second outlet at Damansara Uptown. […]

Nyonya Taste Cuisine, Kota Laksamana Melaka

Being a Peranakan, we don’t usually dine out at Peranakan restaurants. Nyonyas usually take pride of their own cooking and prefer to invite guests to their home for a meal. Majority of them are like that except for me as I am one of those rare Nyonyas who only knows how to eat but not cook. I attribute this to my mom who spoilt us constantly with her delicious home cooked food that I never find the […]
