Half boiled eggs on toast
  Soft, runny, comfort food with a hint of crunch! Half boiled eggs for breakfast with the perfect slice of toast is how I like to eat my breakfast on a lazy day. This is also a very popular breakfast dish amongst Malaysians besides the usual laksa or nasi lemak, which I consider a tad too heavy to have for breakfast. As your body has had a good 8 hour rest the night before, it would be wise to eat something more Read More

Vietnamese Chopped Pork Baguette (Banh Mi)
  It wasn’t really love at first sight…more of love at first bite.

I spotted people emerging with sandwiches of some sort from a Vietnamese stall, and I proceeded to order “one of those”. One bite was all it took to stop me dead on my tracks. Banh Mi, as I found out later, is a mouth-watering Read More
