Updates – June 2014


Hey foodie friends! I have started work in a F&B wholesale and distribution company dealing with Halal F&B products selling into Singapore at direct factory prices. If you are thinking why am I dealing with Muslim stuffs, please don’t get into that spiral stereotyping zone. I was perhaps once like you too thinking Halal foods are directly related to Muslims but the fact is, apart from the pork issue, Halal F&B products are actually a standard of F&B products manufactured in a certified hygienic environment. Nothing to do with religion. So if you see the logo on the product, you’re … Continue reading Updates – June 2014

Home-cooked Thai Food @ Purl’s

Big Roy’s Siew Yoke (Chinese Roast Pork)


Ok this is my first time collaborating with my dear friend from Hong Kong, Christina who bought the pork and shared with me her recipe and how to roast this. The roast pork is actually quite easy to do just that try not to have it too often unless you get those Berkshire or Hungarian pork, where the fats are suppose to be good for you. 🙂 Seasoning: Sea Salt (Remember to recycle the salt after removing from the pork! I use it for cooking and cleaning chicken/fish) Five Spice Powder White Pepper Chinese wine All base on agaration (estimate)… … Continue reading Big Roy’s Siew Yoke (Chinese Roast Pork)

Feeling Appreciated


You know when you write about food, you really wanna tell others how heavenly the stuff that you’ve tried and hope that they too, can enjoy the flavours that you experienced. And I really appreciate the owners/representative of the establishment writing back to at least respond to what you wrote. If not in my case, they would respond to customers who commented on the food and place, regardless of good or bad the comments. This is a way of telling your customers or critics that you do take in feedbacks and try to make it better when there are any … Continue reading Feeling Appreciated
