Delicious Chocolate Brownies

I've never really considered myself much of a baker but nowadays, I enjoy making desserts as much as I love cooking. A while ago, whenever I attempted to bake something, it would always fail miserably but these days, they can be quite successful and taste darn good (even if I say so myself :P).

One of the things that I enjoy making on a regular basis besides cupcakes are brownies. Yes, I have a slight obsession with making brownies when I am bored in the kitchen whilst prepping dinner. This chocolate brownie recipe is quick and simple, all you need to do is put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix everything's that easy and it's so delicious! (I have a few friends that can vouch for this)

If you like your brownies to be fudgy and gooey, you don't want to miss out on this recipe :)

Matcha, White Chocolate & Banana Brownies

The very first time I made brownies, it was an absolute success and it tasted so so good. My friend, Yin-Kik and I weren’t even patient enough to let the brownies cool completely before attacking them.
Some people prefer pure chocolate brownies with nothing added to them because they believe brownies should be left alone to be just chocolate and nothing else. On the other hand, I have a slight obsession with adding banana to my brownies (it doesn’t help that bananas are so cheap at the moment). The bananas make the brownies smells amazingly fragrant and also, because it’s a fruit, I feel less guilty indulging in them.
In the past few months, I have lost count of the number of times that I have made chocolate chip banana brownies and thought I should experiment with other flavours. I tried looking up a recipe that combines matcha, white chocolate and banana but couldn’t find any at all so, I had some fun in the kitchen. With it being my first time making these brownies, it was a compl…

Matcha Banana Bread

It's been nearly 8 months since I last blogged, I can't believe so much time has passed! >_< Yes, I have been a bit slack but this matcha banana bread recipe is going to totally make up for it.

In the past month, I have made several versions of The Baker Chick's banana bread and the general consensus at home was that the matcha version of it is the best one and I absolutely agree. Being me, I couldn't help but deviate from the recipe as usual but it's all good coz there are no complaints at home and my matcha banana bread is always demolished in under 24-48 hours (depending how many batches I make).

Durian Durian Durian

You either love or hate it; that's what they say but I do know some people who are indifferent about it.

Those who hate it can't stand the smell of it whereas I love the king of fruits and I think it smells damn good. I once had a professor explain what durian tasted like to the whole class and this is what he said, "Eating durian is like eating custard in a smelly toilet".

For those of you who have never tried durian, I highly encourage you to at least try it once in your life. I mean, you'll never might just end up loving it :)

Eating My Way Through Kuala Lumpur in 4.5 days

I may have lived in Melbourne for the past 15 years of my life but I will always call Malaysia, home.

"home is where love resides, memories are created, friends always belong and laughter never ends"

Whenever I am back, there are always so many new food places that I discover on people's blogs or instagram that I want to eat at but other times, I like returning to my old favourites :)

Eating My Way Through Singapore in 6 days

I remember once as a kid in Malaysia; my mum whisked me from school and took me to Singapore with her for the day as she had some business meetings to attend to. Did I remember her attending business meetings? Not really but I do remember the both of us sitting in a restaurant overlooking Orchard Road where we observed the people who went by. We had Japanese food; I had an ebi don and mum had an unagi don. I am blessed that at a very young age, I was exposed to different types of cuisines and I enjoy eating as much as I can.

It's not the first time that I have been to Singapore but the past two times that I was there, I did not get to explore the food scene as much as I wanted to. So, this time I made it a point that I would try to hit up as many food places and eat as much as my stomach will let me.

Below are the list of places that I visited whilst in Singapore:-
