Chew Jetty – A Stroll Down A Living Heritage Community Part 1, Penang

Having been a home on stilts on the shores for the Chew Clan community more than a century and is still now, the Chew Jetty has withstood the test of time and a strong testament of living heritage for Penang and the world to mesmerize.
Started merely as a wooden passageway and slowly created into a cluster of houses perch above the sea shores by stilts above the never ending shifting tides, this communal site is locked in a time zone by itself, disregarding the urban development that is taking place around it.

Prune butter cake 蛋糕

Penang [檳城] • 24 NOVEMBER 2012
This week, two bare prune cakes, without icing or decoration. The aim here was to capture the rich flavour of prune in these two unadorned cakes, one loaded with butter and the other quite simple with sunflower oil, wholemeal flour and muscovado sugar. I made both using just a wooden spoon and bowl – no high-speed mixing here – so they're also as lo-tech as you can get.

Sakae Sushi @ Gurney Plaza, Penang

Penang [檳城] • 20 NOVEMBER 2012
Most speak of love, but only one man bestowed the most enchanting of odes to his wife.
It all started in 1997 in Singapore, when having fine Japanese cuisine and fresh sushi meant spending top dollars. He noticed that his wife, an avid fan of Japanese food, was always dining consciously at such restaurants for fear of incurring an exorbitant bill.
And so the ode began. Motivated to make his wife’s sushi dining experience unique, fulfilling and carefree, he founded Sakae Sushi, a trendy restaurant haven where she, along with every Japanese food enthusiast, could enjoy the freshest, inexpensive Japanese savouries without a worry about cost.

Breakfast at The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf @ Queensbay, Penang

Penang [檳城] • 10 NOVEMBER 2012
Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. In winter I love a steaming bowl of porridge with soya sauce. It’s like a warm hug to start the day right.

Bee Cheng Hiang’s Gourmet Bakkwa, Penang

Penang [檳城] • 8 NOVEMBER 2012
What exactly is the subject of these daydreams? It's the incredibly delicious, greasy, smoky strips of pork - generously smeared in spices and what I guess is honey - that's sold at Bee Cheng Hiang as Gourmet Bakkwa - basically, barbecued bacon.

Miso Pork Ramen ラーメン

Penang [檳城] • 02 NOVEMBER 2012
Ramen are very popular noodle dishes in Japan, and boiled noodles are basically served in different flavored soup with many toppings. Chukamen noodles which are generally made with wheat flour and kansui (alkaline solution) are used for ramen dishes. There are many regional speciality ramen available in Japan. They are different in broth, soup flavors, toppings, noodle texture, and more. Making a delicious ramen isn't easy if you are making the soup from scratch.
