Shanghai: Laowang Hotpot (捞王锅物料理)

This was the greatest discovery this trip – thanks a lot to CEW who introduced this magical place to me. No regrets skipping Haidilao to try a new hotpot spot, which we enjoyed so much that we returned on our last night. Ordering This is the important part. As ordering is by way of scanning…

Bangkok: Mother May I

I didn’t have any expectations coming into here – I just knew it was going to be picturesque and the ambience, really chill. Gotta say that this is the best dining spot this trip (in terms of price / ambience / food combined): set in a colonial bungalow with a patio for outdoor dining and…

California dreamin’ (Part 3)

In terms of chronology, this should come immediately after post 1 on California – it should cover Malibu (very briefly), Santa Barbara, Monterey and Santa Cruz. We kept Miley Cyrus’ Malibu and Rita Ora’s Anywhere on repeat as we drove on the Pacific Coast Highway through Malibu towards Santa Barbara – Malibu is extremely pretty…

Perth, Australia: eats / hits

4 words: It’s been a while. Since I’ve been to Perth, that is. However, I really don’t want to forget the wonderful time I had in Perth and the beautiful pictures I took must be shared with the World Wide Web. Here goes nothing! Perth has always been the quieter cousin of buzzy cities like…

Bangkok: Inter

I really liked Inter. If Thais had a cha chain teng equivalent, I think Inter would fit the bill. It seemed like a very local joint (well… as local as you can get – they have English menus) with people coming in to takeaway food. Well, I can understand – the pad thai is possibly the best rendition…

Bangkok: Krau Apsorn

Hello from Bangkok, aka every Singaporean’s go to destination for food and shopping. It’s been 22 years since I’ve been here (yes I was 2 when my parents first brought me, and I haven’t returned since) and I had great expectations for all the food I was gonna eat! Early dinner at Krau Apsorn did…

Tokyo: WHAT TO EAT

I feel like I have to blog about Tokyo before I get all lazy and forget about it, and then the post never materialises. This Tokyo trip was highly highly spontaneous, meaning that other than Disney, Nick and I didn’t plan ANYTHING at all. The only planning that we did was what to eat, and…

San Francisco: Bay Area, Stanford & Palo Alto

Yes, I know, I came back from San Francisco more than a month ago – somehow I feel like chronicling my foodventures through the places I’ve been is a lot simpler and easier than just a restaurant in itself. Feel like a place does influence the kind of food people tend to cook cos 1)…

Sydney

TUTORIALS ARE OVER FOR THE WEEK. YES (but omg 3 next week the thought of it is just exhausting…). So I’m back to continue where I left off from Melbourne. We went to Sydney for four days (but really had only a grand total of three days) and I kind of wish we spent more…

Melbourne

Alright, it’s been more than a year, and what a difference a year makes. So what inspired this – basically ET asked me to update and today Trish asked me about Melbourne AND about Tummytay in lecture and during lunch. So why not? And also, I feel like I may never have such satisfying meals…
