Welcome to our photo-journal, initially created in honour of our devotion to the everyday food for the everyday person. Meant as a written account of our days, trips and special events, it is our way of keeping chronological memories of our life's events and our travels where our 'perut' (tummy) leads the way. Mind you we're no food critics... but we know what we like!

Chinese New Year is celebrated worldwide to
mark the first day of the New Year in the Chinese calendar, which differs from
the Gregorian calendar. It is also known as the Spring Festival or the Lunar
New Year and celebrations can last for about 15 days.
The Chinese New Year for 2014 is on January
31 and marks the start of the Year of the Horse.
As with other Chinese homes around
Malaysia, our windows and doors will be decorated with red colour paper-cuts
and couplets with popular themes of "good fortune" or
"happiness", "wealth", and "longevity." We’ll let our pictures paint the words for us…
