• A Scrumptious Feast Hosted by Celebrity Chef Fikree To Your Home This Raya

    Raya open house is such a joyful celebration to attend especially as family and friends come to gather for the lavish spread of local celebratory delicacies. But to host it would be a different story altogether. The stress from choosing which decorative items to buy, to purchasing new clothes for the whole family and then planning out your Raya spread could be overwhelming sometimes. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have relatives and friends over to your house to enjoy a Raya feast with the company of a celebrity chef, without you having to break a sweat organizing or spend a single cent to cook up a feast? As part of…

  • 港潮私房菜, 也许是私人菜

    We attended a dinner hosted by a foreign bank few weeks back at Gong Chew Kitchen, Bandar Puteri Puchong.  During the dinner, we tasted some of the dishes, but not all, as it was a social and casual dining session, and we did not stay till the end of the menu, as we had to rush off to fetch our daughter. So the thought of trying the food there not for social purpose arouse, we found Friday night was kind of okay for me, Retna and Inez to dine there.  So, we went.  Called in advance to make a reservation, which the team was calling me non-stop while I was…

  • Welcome to Puchong, 2.0

    I started Welcome To Puchong Facebook page a few years ago, when I was doing it with a few others.  It did not last.  Mainly, I was generating and developing the content, as well as promoting the page, alone. Just kind of like another tech enthusiast group I started with others, after a while, it was me running it alone, with the help of Retna, as well as our twins. As you are probably figuring things out now, I prefer a family run kind of startup.  Maybe it is about commitment from others, which I think could have taken a toll on some. So I went quiet for a while,…

  • Innovate, or Die

    Seldom visit a Pasar Malam (Night Market), but I did last night when I took a short break from the usual hustles.  Mainly I thought I would find dinner here, anyway, I ended walking about instead of eating here.  Mainly, hygiene.  Just recovered from a bad stomach situation few days ago.  

  • Blending Health, Convenience, Possible?

    I once went on a trip of fasting, after I learn from a Finnish expert of health, he came in Malaysia many years back.  I attended his session (FOC), which he shared on the idea of fasting, without food for days, just plain water.  I tried, it seems to work.  I forgot his name by now, I was 14 that time. However, the fast I did recently (some years back) was the pray for the nation, I did the half and full day fast, and praying for the nation. As the Ramadan is drawing closer, which is about sometime next month, we will be seeing many Muslim around the world…

  • Weekend, Water

    So last weekend, 500,000 household and commercial units experienced long water disruption, from March 6 to March 11, and some until today, still no water. Instead of thinking about water disruption, we have gone to learn some free hand sketch at Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia, a workshop organised by the museum.  Then, since we could not cook at home, we had lunch at the restaurant, which to be honest, while the service sucks, the food is great. We visited the curated exhibition on “Syria, Yemen, Iraq: The Risk of Forever Being Lost”.  A great idea which the museum collaborated with International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).  Just few things which…
