EatsMeetsWest: Creative dips with Hellmann’s Mayonnaise
I had the privilege of meeting Chef Luke Thomas who burst into the limelight when he became Britain’s youngest head chef at the tender age of 18.

LG SIGNATURE Fridge GF-X9052GR: InstaView Door-in-Door Stainless Steel French Door Fridge
The time had come to retire my 15 year old fridge and as fate would have it, I got acquainted with LG SIGNATURE's uber-slick stainless steel fridge at their launch event recently.

I must say that Li Yin Zhu is probably my favourite local “Food” actress. I think she must be a foodie in real life because whenever you watch her on screen describing food she always manages to portray a deep sense of connection with the dish. I loved her work in “The Little Nonya”, where she played the matriarch of the family, and the scene where she tasted the Rempah Udang and proclaimed “就是这个味道” (This is the taste!”) ranks up there with the most memorable food scenes of all time!
Rocketgirl and I celebrate our “going out” anniversary every year in October. Of course, when I got to know her, I got to know her family as well, so this year I also invited her family to join us for a special meal. Rather than go out to a restaurant somewhere, I thought it would […]
I have been wanting to get a wine fridge for the longest time. I am not a big wine collector as I am only a social drinker, but I do have a few bottles which I have picked up over the years. These bottles have been lying in my cupboard thus far and all I […]
