Fern Tip Salad with Grated Coconuts and Beans
Yes, I confess right now. This is not a quick salad to put together, it does requires some time and love to prepare the ingredients. However, it is too good not to share with you guys.
Chef Penny suggest that you make the Bumbu Bali ahead, and freeze them in your ice trays, and just remove 1 block if you are making this salad for 2 persons. So find some time over the weekend, you would not regret making this sexy salad, every bit as delicious as it sounds.
Let me know what you ...
1 on 1: Filming with Daniel
I nearly fell off my chair when Daniel showed me his transformation picture. He professed to be fat before, but I never really believed him till he showed me his before picture. It took him years of determination to get fit - running was an intuitive sport to get into, seeing that you only need a pair of trainers to start. And then he started running marathons, and the pounds trickled off. He was also more careful with his diet.
Daniel is 6'4" tall and affectionately known as T-Rex ...
1 on 1: Filming with Zak
I wanted to make this more personal and write about my vlogging experience with each of my guest.
I have been fortunate. The day I decided to venture into advocating for women's healthy via a new YouTube channel, I spoke to a lot of people. This helped with garnering the guests you see on my TV show. Each one of them is specially selected for their talent and chemistry we will have on-screen, each of them willing to collaborate with me voluntarily, and each of them lending their person...
Episode 4: Iwa & One Pot Wonder
Do you have flabby arms? Do not fret, check out this episode where we show you how we tone our triceps up with some easy exercises. My special guest this week is yummy mummy Iwa @girlwzthedragontattoo. She is my biggest inspiration when it comes to knowing a mummy with a hot bod. My jaw dropped when I first saw here at the gym in her midriff top doing quick reps of cleans and presses with her barbells. She has a ripped core, toned arms and legs that goes on forever. I was smitten, not in a ...

Steffles’ Asian Fish or Crab Cakes
Just like my marriage, I love marrying East with West. One ventures into new territories of sight, taste, sound and mind, without losing your own heritage. So here's a western fish cakes recipe made with asian seasoning and herbs. The cakes can be made 1 day in advance and fried just before serving. Served with a Salsa dressed in Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, this makes a great starter or double it up for mains. This is so good, cook it for your partner when you need to regain back some ...
Quick Pickled Vegetables
I love quickies! It satisfies an urge but yet urgent and exciting. Yes we are talking about pickled vegetables :-) This is quick because it doesn't have to sit in the jar to be fermented. Just 2 hours in the fridge and it 's enough to infuse the tangy sweet taste to the raw vegetables while it maintains it crunch to satisfy the urge.
I really fell in love with pickled veg when I was in Kyoto 2015 on one of our compulsory couple trips annually. Without the kids, we get to enjoy each ...
Rainbow Salad with Hummus Avocado Dip / Dressing
There's always a story behind a new recipe creation. This one is inspired by 2 events.
Firstly a hostess that 's trying her best to be on a Paleo diet but wanted more Asian familiar recipes, and secondly, the plantbased foodporn feeds I have been getting on my IG account. Presenting vegetables in a variety of colours can be a real turn on I reckon.
So here you go.
This recipe is inspired from one of my favorite cookbook author, Yotam Ottolenghi. What I like about this recipe is it can be vegetarian, without the bacon. It can also be a paleo, high protein diet.
While we are at this, it is also gluten-free and lactose-free :) Besides that it also photographs stunningly, the velvety red tomato contrasting against the silky white and soft runny egg yolks.
My version is a smoky sexy one, tuned it up using smoked paprika and liquid smoke. If you ...
Vegetarian Pad Thai Salad
This salad was inspired by the PS Cafe version but mine here is presented like how you would eat the actual noodle Pad Thai in most Thai restaurants :) There are many alternatives to this, but I like the version served using a dressing very similar to the Green Papaya Salad. This salad can be made vegan, vegetarian, paleo or gluten free. I will post a vegetarian version, and refer to my notes
below how to make it to suit your diet preference. You can also add other kinds of ...
