Nirvana Kitchen

When it comes to HGAT, BW is my biggest fan, CEO/CFO/Editor, basically, 95% of my workforce, and Sugar Daddy. As great as he is, he drives me absolutely nuts. Ever seen the movie Horrible Bosses? Yeah, he’s all three bosses combined. One instance is when it comes to visiting restaurants. He’ll be sure to remind […]

The Landmark Afternoon tea

Afternoon Tea at The Landmark Hotel

As much as I love breakfast, brunch, lunch, elevenses, and dinner, nothing can beat a good spot of traditional Afternoon Tea. Piling warm scones up high with thick clotted cream and eating numerous finger sandwiches in one seating; what is there not to love. Plus, it is the easiest gift for anyone special in your […]


When Yosma first opened, it was the hottest Turkish restaurant in town. Everyone seemed to have pushed aside the classic ocakbasis of Stokey, and were instead heading to Baker Street for their Turkish fix. Unfortunately, they weren’t halal at this point. And being right on my doorstep, I would have to walk past, watching everyone else […]

Black Roe

Around five years ago, Dad had taken Mum, Z, and I, on a lovely two week family trip to Hawaii. It was one of the best holidays I had been on, and I still cannot thank Dad enough for putting up with me for the 18 hours (with a stopover!) plane journey on the way […]


Every once in a while, we all go through a rough patch. Nothing seems to be going right, and you just can’t catch a break. It happens to the best of us, including my dearest and littlest husband. Maybe it’s just me, but comfort food seems to do the trick in cheering everyone up, plus […]

Gaylord Restaurant

When it comes to food, BW’s biggest complaint against me is my terrible decision-making. Apparently, this happens to be a weekly occurrence when we go for dinner and although this has been pointed out to me many times, I just can’t seem to understand. One example was when I decided to organise a spontaneous dinner date for […]


Having surpassed 1.5 years of marriage (someone forgot the flowers *cough*), I began to feel horribly old. Where had the time gone? I swear it was just yesterday that I started secondary school with my massive middle parting and bushy eyebrows, and now here i am, plus two grey hairs already – crazy! Unfortunately, BW […]

Chi Kitchen

When it comes to holidays or short breaks, BW and I are really, REALLY last minute. I’m talking about booking a weekend trip on the Thursday before we go kind of last minute. Some of you are probably thinking “aw, you guys are so spontaneous”, no! These trips have been decided weeks and even months […]

Mahdi Restaurant

You know when you try and be super careful with something and then you end up messing it all up because you were over careful? Ugh I had one of those recently! You see, I’ve written off one car, driven into my parents PARKED car about five times, had my fair share of speeding tickets, […]

Original Lahore Kebab House

Since I’ve moved out, Mum has been trying her hardest to teach me to make all my favourite home cooked meals, especially curries. My routine Wednesday home visits now comprise of at least a few hours of learning my way around the kitchen, but usually that means Mum cooks and I get to eat, as […]
