There is no better pick-me-up on a Sunday morning than two soft-boiled eggs drizzled with dark soy sauce, freshly toasted Kaya toasts, and a cup of freshly brewed kopi (coffee).

Kaya Toasts (Toast with Coconut Jam)

An authentic Singapore-style breakfast at the kopitiam (coffee shop) has to come with kopi (coffee), soft-boiled eggs, and kaya toasts.

Vietnamese Noodle Bowl with Grilled Lemon Grass Chicken

Finally, after three quarters of  ‘catering’ food for the girls, EK actually made a real contribution this week. He grilled the chicken! And he was very proud that the chicken was grilled to perfection. Seriously, I wouldn’t have survived three quarters of mass cooking every weekend without him manning the cleaning department. The proof is in all the utensils that Read More
