Are You Afraid of the Dark? | Chulia Street Night Market

When we were little kids our parents would always warn us (or more likely scare us off) about the horrors of night time. We used to have this routine of looking under the bed, checking the closets, locking the windows and leaving a night light on, afraid of the nightmares and monsters that we thought…

Wantan Mee So Good, It’s God-Level.

It’s been 5 months since I first tried this god level wantan mee stall and I still wonder why tourists don’t flock this place. In fact, I can remember every time I came here (about 4 or 5 times now) I was the only non-local dining. It blows my mind that in this day and…

Claypot Chicken Rice in KL Chinatown

I knew I’d love this already. This reminds me so much of my late brother. He loved hot pots before and he’d never fail to order them from Ding How Dimsum (or any dimsum place in Cebu). Growing up, we’d eat there almost every Sunday after church. It was all routine — we knew what we wanted.…

Feel at Home at Aunty Manju’s Home of Banana Leaf

Seems to always be a FEAST here in  Malaysia. I love the people. I love the food even more. A newfound friend took me out for some really good Indian food. He mentioned something about banana leaves so I had imagined food being cooked in them. Turns out, it’s like the boodle fight back home in…

Win Heng Seng’s pork noodles is a treasure of Kuala Lumpur and stumbling into this place made my day.

Bukit Bintang’s Secret Wan Tan Mee Stall

Now, I don’t know how much of a secret this place is because I always see the Wan Tan Mee stall PACKED with customers. However, they are mostly locals so it may be quite a secret to tourists. I was fortunate enough to have a foodie friend in Kuala Lumpur and he was the perfect…
