Indomie Mi Goreng Jumbo – Tom Yum – Instant Noodles

For those who love their instant noodles, I posted about Indomie Mi Goreng with Peri Peri a few days ago. I thought I’d showcase the packets of my two favourite (and best) instant noodles, Indomie Mi Goreng (as you know) and Mama Tomyum noodles. The Tomyum noodles are not for the faint of heart as […]

Indomie Mi Goreng with Nando’s Peri Peri Sauce – Geek Food

Talking about noodles, one geek food recipe I’ve always wanted to try was Indomie Mi Goreng with Nando’s Peri Peri sauce. The recipe was simple, make the Indomie as per the packet instructions, place an egg on top and add the Peri Peri sauce. It’s a fantastic variant for a late night fast hunger buster […]

Gyoza – Canon G11 – Photo

Been a while since the last food post and I thought it would be a great opportunity to test out my new Canon G11. Whilst not as sharp as a 40D SLR, it still can create some crisp images even in the below low light conditions with the aperture opened to 2.8. Anyway . . […]

Pomegranate Frogurt

A previous post discussed the various kind of milkshake flavours. Now in the world of frogurt (frozen yogurt) there’s pomegranate yogurt. A fresh but rather delicious taste.

There are various flavours of milkshakes ranging from the immortal trinity of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry to more exotic like banana, mint and black cherry. I’m actually very boring when it comes to flavours and usually stick with good ‘ole […]

Malaysian Teh (Tea) and Curry Puff

A very Malaysian snack of a cup of hot tea with condensed milk (mmm sweet) and two curry puffs! Unfortunately these curry puffs were filled with potatoes only. Would have tasted better with a little bit of chicken in them. The cups are also pretty distinctively Malaysian, the type you’ll find in your regular kopi […]

Another Green Tea Ice-Cream

Another Green Tea Ice-Cream from a sushi shop in Sydney’s northern suburbs. Except this time wafers instead of cornflakes were used and this version was topped with fresh strawberries. The ice-cream was home made and was very delicious!

Another Green Tea Cappucino

Sometime last year I posted a photo of a Green Tea Cappucino with heart design on the froth. On a recent visit I noticed the design had been changed to flowers. Still tastes great!

Cookies and Coffee

I was shopping recently and walked past Famous Amos (a cookie franchise). Anyway I took a double take when I realised who the staff at this particular shop had used for their mascot. Could this be the dream job for Cookie Monster? After having a quick chat with their mascot, I ordered a nice hot […]
