Invited Food Review at Ko-Fu-Loft (Penang) – Part I

During my recent Penang vacation, I attended my first invited food review at Ko-Fu-Loft (口福楼), Gurney Plaza. I was very delighted to be included in what is by far the largest gathering of Penang food bloggers attending a food review. I find the occasion an enjoyable one. We had a great time sharing our personal opinion on food, blogging experiences and photography tips. I would like to thank...

But it may take quite a while before I can get the “ideal” layout. Right now, I just want to continue blogging so that I won’t keep everyone waiting for too long.   Here, I would like to express my appreciation...

A Peranakan nyonya dining experience – The Blue Ginger Restaurant

  Recently, peranakan nyonya cuisine and delicacies have become much sought-after in Singapore, thanks to a 34-episodes drama serial – Little Nyonya (小娘惹). The TV series were aired on MediaCorp TV Channel 8 from November 2008 till January 2009. Although I didn’t follow all the episodes, this show has also swayed my interest to try out the authentic Singapore peranakan food. Opportunity came...

Kuih is an Asian concept of cakes and pastries, different from that of the Western one in term of texture, flavour and appearance. Ever since I left...

Happy 2009!

  Hi Everyone! I am back after a long holiday break. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday for both my son and myself. I didn’t cook at all during this period. I am so glad that my son loves all my mum’s cooking especially her “char siew” (barbeque) chicken.   My hubby joined us towards end of December. He had not been to Penang for 2 years. Therefore, both of us launched...

Hurray! Holiday Break!

  HURRAY! My holiday has finally arrived! We are going to Kuala Lumpur (my hubby’s hometown) for a few days, and then moving north to Penang (my hometown). It is really a long break for me. I will be back to Singapore on 1 Jan 2009. Eat and sleep, sleep and eat….What kind of holiday can be better than this? Hahaha! I will disappear from this blog for a couple of days. Thank you so much for...

Foodbuzz is the only online community with content created by food bloggers and...
