The Empanada Experience -JC’s Mash Up 1

I know this is not a Malaysian recipe (I have the Nasi Lemak recipe still in draft mode <_<) but since I’m trying to create something out of all the mess of recipes, I need to document it so I can improve on it. The taste of this empanada is not bad but could use…

A Little Impulsive about Moomins

Okay, I’m weak when I go to the store, I see something on promotion or something that looks cute and doesn’t cost an arm or a leg, I may buy it. My latest impulse buy was non other than Kitchen Towels! Yep…roll those eyes people. I honestly did not need it as I have 30…

Table for One + the Dog

My hubby is taking a well deserved break after working long hours and almost everyday of the week for the past month to bootstrap our little start-up. To be honest, this journey hasn’t been easy. There are days when I feel like, what’s the point, watching our competitors getting snapped up by one company after…

The Asian Town of Finland – Hakaniemi, Helsinki, Finland

I recently wrote a post about how I rediscovered cooking Asian food and mainly Malaysian style home-cooked or hawker style meals through a mini flashback after going through my piles of photos in an external drive (you can read about it here). The store in Mankka, Espoo I was talking about was non other than…

2nd Week of School- Down with the cold

So, it’s Wednesdays and I thought I can get on with my routine. Unfortunately this season’s cold caught up with our little one. She had a slight fever and as the Finnish school instructions for parents goes, we are to keep the child at home, luckily (or unfortunately) I work from home. It will bother…

A Malaysian in Finland – Mini Flashback to my History

Since coming to Finland in 1998, many things have changed. I actually lived in Finland for more than 2 years not knowing any Asian stores existed. I took for granted what I could find everyday in Malaysia when I moved here. You see, the neat selection of high quality products available in Finland always puts…

Breakdown – Meltdown

I’m back after a hectic weekend! You can’t imagine what I’ve been through this weekend especially with my┬ácomputer. I was working on Thursday evening and all of a sudden my Windows 10 decided, “Nope, I won’t let you continue, I’ll just go and destroy all your work and update your computer for you!” The moment…

Family – Life in Finland: School

There are tons of articles out there (scroll all the way down for some of the articles) stating how great the Finnish school system is, how successful it is and so on. Having never experienced it first hand (unless going to Finnish class counts, no matter) it’s hard to compare.┬áMy first and only child (I’ve…

Cleaning (or just doing something productive) Day

I’m a person who detest cleaning but enjoy having a clean environment to live in. With a soft launch to perform market validation of my new business idea so close and still so many tweaks to do and so many FAQ’s to go through, I wonder if I’m stretching myself too thin. I promise to…

New Journey

I’ve embarked on a new journey and thought that since I do enjoy social networking and spending quite a lot of my waking moments on social media that I would create a website to compile all of the interesting things I’ve found on my online journey as well as offline journey. I enjoy travelling (a-LOT)…
