Bangkok Jam hosted a Thai Street Food Carnival, Thai’Rrific Food Fest, at their Marina Square outlet on 22 October 2015. It aims to celebrate the diversity of Thai street food you can find in the streets and markets of Bangkok.
I had been missing the street food in Bangkok as it had been almost 2 years since I last visited Bangkok. Thanks to Thai’Rrific Food Fest, I managed to satisfy my craving for Thai Street Food and a fun-filled and tummy-filled evening with my bestie, Jia Hui.
“You have been selected for The Alshaya Food Tour in Dubai !” When I saw the email, I could not believe my eyes. I had been blogging for the past 2 years and this was the biggest recognition I have ever gotten. After knowing who were the other 4 food bloggers, I was kind of stress on my contribution for The Alshaya Food Tour. I was the most novice in the whole group. Nevertheless, I am up for the challenge.
Dubai Here I come!!!
My first in-flight lunch on Emirates Boeing 777.
Finally, we had a weekend off for ourselves after all our endless work. I planned a surprise staycation for him at The Puteri Pacific Johor Bahru.
The Puteri Pacific Johor Bahru is conveniently located on heritage row of Jalan Trus, just a few minutes away from City Square Johor Bahru as well as the Jalan Tan Hiok Nee Culture street where you can do your cafe hopping. The Johor Bahru Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine Complex (CIQ) at the causeway to Singapore are also within walking distance.
I booked a 2D1N staycation at their dulex room on the Executive floor with breakfast at Agoda.com for $122.44.
After the short food trail I had previously at Taman Sentosa, I had been looking forward to my next food adventure in Johor Bahru.
Cafes had been sprouting out almost everywhere in Johor over these past few years. Singaporean had also starting to move into Johor to do their cafe hopping.
Thanks to Jia Hui from FaithJoyHope and Hazel from HazelDiary for planning the cafe hopping session.
Most of the cafes are located at.

Item 1 : Crystal Haw Gar
$4.90 (3 Pieces)
Even though, this Haw Gar is not the best in the market.This is one of my favorite dish coming to dim sum. The skin is too thick and the prawn was fresh and sweet.
The Crystal Haw Gar is also one of the Chef Recommendation in the menu.
I tried making ice cream a few years back with Ice Cream machine. However, I am unable to get the texture and tasted which I like.
The ice cream usually turned out tasting salty due to the salt content that was put in. I gave up making ice cream back then.
Recently, I found this amazing and simple recipe for ice Cream.
It only require you to have 2 simple ingredient, Heavy Cream and Condense Milk. With this Ice Cream base, you can create all the different flavors of ice Cream you desire.
Since we are having the mango season now , I decided to make Mango Ice Cream.
I am a huge fan of banana and chocolate. Both banana and chocolate make the perfect combination for desserts.
Since I had some ripe banana, instead of letting it to waste. I decided to bake Banana Chocolate Muffin for my office’s Monday breakfast meeting.
This recipe is adapted from “Laura in the Kitchen”. You can check her out at her Youtube channel here. I love her cooking and baking tutorial.
