The Art of Eating All You Want

The Art of Eating All You Want

“Tell me why you don’t weigh 500 pounds!” my good friend Jared said to me.  He was referring to how, despite the constant eating that goes on in the Yeow family, we seem to be able to maintain a reasonable weight. I’ve heard numerous times […]

Curse of the ‘Child Bride’

Curse of the ‘Child Bride’

Teena had a birthday few days ago. Despite having had four kids and joining me on the ‘wrong side’ of forty, this chick still looks eighteen! There were three notable occurrences just this past week that rammed home the harsh fact that ‘Little Miss Evergreen’ looks young enough […]

The Tragedy of Lost Recipes

The Tragedy of Lost Recipes

Teena and I were having a chat the other day about cooking know-how lost between generations in families. We’ve spoken to countless others from ethnic Asian backgrounds who aren’t able to cook their families’ traditional dishes despite of wanting to and having parents who were wonderful […]

10 Must-Haves of The Yeow Family Pantry

One of my greatest passions in life is to experiment in the kitchen. Because of this, the make up of stuff in my pantry changes frequently. That said, there are some mainstays. Casper asked me to provide him with a list of Yeow pantry ‘permanent […]

Memories from the Dinner Table

Food Place Review: Yen Linh – Chinatown

Food Place Review: Yen Linh – Chinatown

This write-up is part food place review and part public apology. It started at bedtime on Valentine’s Day eve. I headed into the bedroom first, while Teena was going through her bedtime routine. As with most nights I closed the door to the bedroom, while she did […]

Celebrating Chinese New Year with the Malaysia Club

Celebrating Chinese New Year with the Malaysia Club

The Malaysia Club of South Australia‘s Chinese New Year dinner this year, the year of the Rooster, was awesome as it always has been in previous years. Held at the Sicilian Club (does anyone else besides me, who finds this moderately amusing?!) and as it […]

Food Place Review: Banh Mi – Vietnamese Rolls

First Impressions The first time I came across Banh Mi Vietnamese Rolls, located below Grenfell Tower (aka ‘The Black Stump’) at 25 Grenfell Street (opposite Citicross Arcade),  I passed because of the crazy lineup that lead way out past its front entrance. At the time I wasn’t […]

Here’s our first go at a cooking video. The quality’s not the best but I can assure you it tasted great! I have to admit, it took a lot more time than I imagined to edit and put it together but satisfying at the end. Hope […]
