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 […]

There is a special car park area for […]

Whenever we speak of rice dumplings, my memories will immediately be of my late Grandma’s home-made Nyonya Chang we fondly call Kueh Chang. I remembered when I […]
I used to cook this dish when I was courting Darling decades ago but ever since we got married I don’t remember ever serving him this until today :) I’ve forgotten how to cook it that I had to call my mother to make sure. Unlike some other Nyonya Assam Prawn (especially the Penang version) where the prawn are fried until dry and a bit burnt, my mom’s is the wet version. I remembered as […]
Mine was a fantastic one. It’s always fantastic when I’m back in my parent’s place. The first thing that greeted me upon arrival is the long craved nasi lemak bunga telang with kangkung, anchovies, prawn sambal, boiled egg and cucumber. Urm, actually my niece, my sister and my mom greeted me first but ah well, I was so looking forward to EAT this! Haha.. *aiyaiyai.. now i feel like eating this again* This nasi lemak […]
