Before you start exploring, ask yourself: why are you here?

The answer is pretty simple: for the love of food.

Food is a conversational piece, meant to be shared. In a world that looks for differences, it combines a common goal. Food is our staple, our medicine, and our comfort zone. So feeling hungry? I’ve got the perfect meal for you. Looking for a spot to grab a bite? I’ve got great eatery referrals too. If food is art, then my goal is to create a mosaic. Stay tuned for everything fresh on the food scene & remember: the quickest way to a happy soul is one blog post away -S.

Copy of SAVOUEIS (1)

No one really ever thinks of cooking as the first option for stress relief. If anything, most women could argue it generates stress. But between juggling life as a biomed undergrad, and an average young adult with a rollercoaster called life, cooking has been one of the solid few things from a young age I could turn to and say “I’ve got this”. Especially coming from a South Asian background, I was blessed with an early introduction to the world of never-ending spices.

A lot of young people could argue, “but why bother cooking? I haven’t got the time, or it goes way over my budget.” If that’s the case, you’ve come to the right place to prove that opinion wrong. Cooking can not only save money if done right under budget, but also provide a way healthier life style, and furthermore serve as a type of therapy. Yes you saw that correctly, therapy for the mind, just like colouring or music. Its a fixative creative process, that can ease the mind from stress. So what better way to collaborate best of both worlds with my own cooking and what good food from local eats has to offer? I look forward to sharing my culinary experiences, and hopefully provide a further meaning from all of it; that food isn’t just for the tummy, but for the soul as well

Eateries & Reviews

As a foodie, nothing excites me more than a pic featuring good food at a local eatery. Unfortunately, most sources stop just about there. What about prices and overall experiance? Some variety on a sneak peek at the menu? Fear not, because I will be bringing all that and more on this page.

I will be rating all posts based on the following:

  • Overall experiance out of 10
  • Overall food quality out of 10
  • Price range from $ being the cheapest to $$$ being the most expensive

Homemade Remedies

So I’ve decided to start a slightly different angle, but with good reason. Here I’ll be posting every trick of the book I was taught growing up that requires nothing else but the power of natural food ingrediants.

From a young age, I was always taught mainly by my father that natural is the way to go. I was taught how ginger could ease any tummy upset, how yogurt and tumeric were the key to glowing skin, or how onions were the key to low blood pressure. What shocked me at times was how effective these simple ingrediants could be, and yet as someone aspiring to enter medicine, it was something I was never exposed to in a classroom or textbook.

I’m not substituting the following posts for prescriptions, but I am suggesting these along the same lines of “an apple a day keeps the doctor way”. I hope you guys will find these just as useful as I did!
