Ayam percik is a classic East Coast dish that gets extra popular during Ramadhan. Go to any bazaar Ramadhan and you'll see chicken on skewers or on grills, smoking and caramelizing before getting a generous lathering or dip in creamy, spicy percik sauce. But, this dish can be expensive to buy. Even more if you are feeding an entire family. So why not… More »

But in the spirit of this holy month, we still think they're worth remembering. Eat What You Need
Post-iftar gluttony is all too common, especially when you go to the hotel buffets. We often take more than we can actually eat. So why not tone down? Eat only what you need during iftar. Not only that you'll waste less food, but we're sure you won't suffer the dreaded food coma afterwards too. Sometimes this is all it takes to make a satisfying iftar..

The day is hot and no one wants to go out to the bazaar.Yes, yes, we're familiar with this… More »
