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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Mama Yeow’s Birthday Dinner 2017

Mama Yeow’s Birthday Dinner 2017

In the beginning… As with most none-major-milestone birthday celebrations in the Yeow family, everything happened impromptu and very quickly. And so it was with Mum’s 69th birthday dinner at our place this past Wednesday.  The annual ‘what are we doing for Mum’s birthday’ conversation with the […]

Food – The true Universal Language for the Yeow Family

Forget the whole “Olympic Spirit brings the world together” cliche. There is only one true universal language – Food! Not only is it universal, it’s also multi-purpose. Certainly for the Yeow Family, food as a medium has served us well in so many ways. Here’s what […]
