If you saw my guide to the Top 10 Meals in Melbourne I enjoyed last year, you'll understand that all I do in Melbourne is eat, eat, and eat. Now I visit Melbourne around thrice a year, each time for 2 weeks thereabouts. Take 1+1, and go figure how many meals I've had. 

So you'll also understand when I say that on my nth visit, I was really begi...

I have this thing: before writing about the spaces I've been to, I'll do a quick Google to see what others think and have written about the space — y'know to make sure I don't get my facts all wrong and that. Top headliners of Five Oars all had the words "Aussie", "Melbourne-inspired" and the likes in them, which was kind of tell-tale yet annoying...

I must admit feeling rather uninspired when it comes to dining out of late. I mean, there's only so far eggs on toasts, pancakes, burgers, and the usual lot can take you. After awhile it all becomes a tad dry and repetitive don't you think? But the problem with being a foodie is, when friends gather and make plans to catch up over some chow, you're...

Be strong. Chin up. Remember you’re beautiful and no one can tell you otherwise.

These little pick-me-ups started making its rounds in my teens and really do wonders on days. I admit to having pinned some in the recesses of my mind as qualities and attitudes to to adopt, cause who likes negativity in their life?

"Heartbreak is unpreventable; the natural outcome of caring for people and things over which we have no control.

Heartbreak begins the moment we are asked to let go but cannot, in other words, it colours and inhabits and magnifies each and every day; heartbreak is not a visitation, but a path that human beings follow through even the most average li...

No more "hidden gem". I've seen this phrase thrown around so much of late, it's getting really dry. Besides Singapore's just so damn big, how "hidden" can any place be? 

I've described places as such before so...guilty as charged (with my hands held high in disgrace), but word of The Glasshouse's been spreading before they've even opened their doors...

The best thing about going around eating all day, is meeting the lovely people behind each joint, talking to them about their passion and their dreams, and somehow just making new friends along the way. That's really how a lot of my relationships with foodies start, and sometimes blossom into something even more — as is the case with Yan here.

I met...

To be honest I never got the affogato. If I wanted a good cuppa, I’d just settle for a regular black coffee with all its lovely aromas and scents clearly discernible. If I wanted a milky or sweet coffee, I’d be more than pleased with the humble and awesome kopi. Get it beng if you need something cold. And if I wanted dessert, I’d have gone all out...

Is word of a good apple pie enough to get you hunting around in town, amidst an abundance of dining options, for a tiny café?

When you're out traipsing around town, deadbeat from walking, hogged down with bags and bags of shopping, and really just in need of a cushy chair and a spot of tea, you're going to jump at the first cafe you see. Doesn't mat...

How is it like to see the world in just black and white?

No colours, no hues, just gradients of monochrome. 

I know this blog, online diary, whatever you'd like to call it, started on the premise of loving food and all things related. Then looking at old papers one day it suddenly struck me: how much interest would people have in these 'blogs' and 'i...
