Malacca is as colorful as her trishaws. That shine bright like diamonds at dusk. Malacca is sweeter than her cendol. Dare I say it’s tastier than Jalan Penang’s. It was in Malacca we wore Malaysia as Baba-Nyonya. Spent (pa-) cute bonding moments. Inspired to pose for more photos. As we discovered Church of St. Paul Ruins as…

One of my Saturday dinner plates prepared by Ms. Pearly Kee. Yes, that’s blue rice on my plate. “Peranakan or Nonya cuisine combines Chinese, Malay and other influences into a unique blend.

15 YEAR FLASHBACK AT DIN TAI FUNG

Catching up with someone whom you have not seen for several years is like watching again your favorite movie or TV show that you grew up with; it certainly brings back memories of the old days. I’m glad I gave a nod to my college classmate’s invitation to meet her and her family in Singapore. And because my 4D3N trip was packed, I had to arrange…
