Food to Comfort a Sad Heart

It has been an emotional month for us Malaysians. One thing after another has knocked us, leaving us breathless that life is full of uncertainties. After the announcement last night on MH370 many are left bereft and perhaps like me unable to really process a tragedy that is close to home but at the same time feels surreal.

Food has always been a comfort in many ways, something that we still have in common once the mud slinging and politicking have died down. So grab your loved ones and enjoy something that is heart and tummy warming.

Breakfast Eggs

Kopitiam

Many of us go back to our childhood to comfort that reminds us of a more innocent time. Eggs give a shot of protein and antioxidants that wakes you up (hence it being common for breakfast). Be extra special to your household. There is nothing more comforting then some eggs (soft-boiled to many with white pepper and kicap) and toast cut into soldierly strips to dip into yolky goodness.…  Continue reading »

Ka Fan (More Rice?)

Another good food film (commercial). This time its from Bernas and its titled Ka Fan or 'more rice' (obviously!). So it looks like its 'Tau Fu Fah' versus Ka Fan this year. This is the longer version so it is a bit draggy. I assume that the TV version is much shorter. Enjoy!

Tau Fu Fah

This is a great advertisement by Petronas for this coming Chinese New Year. It's simply titled Tau Fu Fah and tells the story of a humble Tau Foo Fah seller. The 'Fu' sign means luck and good fortune in Chinese and there is a reason why the film is titled Tau Fu Fah instead of Tau Foo Fah.





To all our Chinese fans out there "Look back on a great life. Look forward to an even greater one". Happy Chinese New Year and enjoy Petronas' new short film. I am glad they did a 'food film' version this year, and a good one at that.  Continue reading »

When it comes to favourite 'makan' places, we Malaysians are really spoiled for choice. Food is a favourite topic in our everyday conversations and one of the most common greeting is " Dah makan?" ( Have you eaten? ) so if you want to know which eateries always get our fans buzzing, check out our list of top 5 reviews in 2012.

1. Kak Laily Nasi Ayam Original, Subang Jaya




One of Kak Laily's trusted sellers and her rows of chicken ready for customers

It's no surprise that chicken rice holds the No. 1 spot on our list. We loove chicken, not only because it's tasty but also due to its affordability and availability. That's why chicken rice is often the preferred lunch choice for the majority of Malaysians. One of the most popular halal 'kai fan' joints in…  Continue reading »

On the No. 1 spot...(drumroll please...)

Fried chicken has always been a crowd favourite so it was quite a revelation when we found out the 2nd most popular recipe was a fish dish. So ranked 2nd in our list is ....surprise,surprise....it's…  Continue reading »
