You wouldn’t believe what I did today. Actually, I myself didn’t believe it too. Someone pinch me. Am I dreaming? While I was delivering stock of my short story book, Perfect Love & Other Stories, ISBN 978-983-44525-6-8, in Ampang Complex I saw this art shop on the first floor.

I must tell you that I do not know anything about art, or of Jake Goh, end of story. So, I walked into this art shop and Eugene Continue reading “jake goh oil paintings”

Simple and Easy Cheese Cake Recipe 1

Cheese cake Pastry Crust

Here is my first attempt at making cheese cake. Actually, I thought about it and decided that the basic cheese cake is a sweet cheese on a pastry crust and that is what I tried on 7th March 2011.

How to make home made virgin coconut oil (vco)


I wrote this article in a previous website on 13 February 2009 but as that site was ‘demolished’ I have reproduced the article here. If you have ever suffered from bad colds or flu you should try taking one or two tablespoons of virgin coconut oil (VCO) at least 3 times a week. Swirl it in your mouth for a few seconds before swallowing to allow the saliva to begin digesting the virgin coconut oil, VCO. I used to get frequent colds because I am a smoker but ever since I have been taking virgin coconut oil, VCO the colds disappeared.

The Temple of Doom


My guess is that you are probably wondering whether it is possible to extract some understanding of economics, investments, speculation and market crashes from the Bible. I had written this article, on 30th December 2009, as a chapter of my book “The Art of Recession” and I thought it would be interesting for you to understand how closely we imitate the Lord God’s words but for an alternative purpose. Hence I reproduce the whole article without modification below:- Continue reading “The Temple of Doom”

Baking french fries



I was feeling a little lazy this evening so I decided to do some ‘easy’ cooking. I made french fries without frying them in oil, just baked them. I had a 1 kg pack of french fries in the freezer for moments like this. This is really easy to do especially once you know what is the best timing for your taste.

I poured some salt and oil liberally on the chips and mixed them by hand. You could use any oil, corn oil, olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil depending on your preference.

how to make bread without yeast, part II

10 February 2011 : Recipe #24

Time flies very quickly when you are preoccupied. When I restarted the bread, wholemeal bread to be exact, experiments I realised that it has been more than a year since I looked at bread making. This time around I will be more systematic and bring in my engineering methodologies and my rubber technology chemical knowledge. First things first, I have to determine the appropriate temperature to bake bread. There were nagging doubts as to why the bread would not rise.

This Blog

When I started this blog I planned to celebrate life by showing you the joy of cooking, at the very least experimental cooking, which is a labour of love. As I got going I realised that there are many other topics that celebrate life. Hence this blog will cover many other topics too.
