Report: Shop-Cook-Eat-Cook #3: Malaysian Chicken Curry with Mama Yeow

That’s a wrap! Another successful and sold-out (in two weeks of putting it up on Eventbrite.com.au!) Shop-Cook-East (SCE) session. Obviously, there’s a gap in the market in teaching how to make Malaysian Chicken Curry. This classic Malaysian dish brings back some great memories for me.  On […]

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 […]

Food Place Review: Banh Mi – Vietnamese Rolls

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 […]

Our Week-long Wedding

Our Week-long Wedding

Teena and I will soon celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. The beginning of this union was somewhat different to what you’d typically expect.  Would you believe that it took us seven days to complete formalities?!  Here’s what happened. Yeow Family; Poh Ling Yeow Day 1 (Tuesday) – The […]
