Hiap Joo Bakery – Still The Best Banana Cake I’ve Ever Had

Having tried many banana cakes in Singapore and elsewhere, I just couldn’t find anything close to the banana cakes from Hiap Joo Bakery in Johor Bahru. Their banana cakes really reminded me of my childhood in the 1980s. My late granny and I loved banana cakes a lot then and they were readily available at […]

Ban Heang | What To Buy In Penang

Besides the pastries from Ghee Hiang which would make great food souvenirs from Penang, you can also check out the array of Malaysian food products and snacks from Ban Heang.

Ghee Hiang Bakery | What To Buy In Penang

One of my favourite things to buy when in Penang would be the tau sar piah (豆沙饼) from Ghee Hiang Bakery. I must say their tau sau piah is one of the best I’ve ever had. It’s a taste of tradition yet their pastries are made very giftable with proper box packaging. Prices are reasonable […]

Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng – Damn nice mee goreng with wok hei

This Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng is something that I deeply miss and constantly crave for after every trip to Penang.

Because there’s nothing quite like Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng, […]

Gurney Drive Hawker Centre | Penang

We had a lovely evening cocktail at the Executive Lounge of G Hotel Kelawai earlier. Yet we still felt peckish an hour later, lol. Not a big problem anyway as there were plenty of food options in the area. We headed out and made our way towards Gurney Drive Hawker Centre, which was just a […]

Our car ride from Bao Sheng Durian Farm to G Hotel Kelawai took about an hour so we arrived at the hotel just before 12 noon. The moment our car came to a stop at the entrance, the bell-boy on duty immediately took our suitcase out from the car boot. We approached the front desk […]

Now I know why my friend, B always eats Magnum ice cream whenever he’s in Malaysia. It only cost about S$1.50 per stick! So cheap compared to Singapore!
