(That Thing I Do)

Marufuku @ Jaya One, PJ

I’ve never been a fan of Japanese dining. The obscene menu prices and the fact that I can’t understand the Japanese transcriptions of the food have never been encouraging. While others accept the price points with various justifications and learn the Japanese names of food, I’ve been largely obstinate and never embraced their value or […]

Oh, How I Prosper (Prosperity Burger @ McDonald’s)

Every year it makes its seasonal rounds towards the end of the year. Every year, my pursuit to eat wisely falls victim to its allure. The thick oblong beef patty, the abundant slivers of zesty onion, the intense black-pepper sauce – a trinity that never fails to weaken my resistance. “Prosperity depends more on wanting […]

How Not To Conduct A Food Review

“For illustration purposes only.” Once upon a time, there was a man. One day this man went to a restaurant and ordered some food. He liked the food very much, and took pictures of it. He then went home, posted up the pictures on his website and wrote all sorts of wondrous things about it […]

I’m not here to announce that Crocs has reopened their Mid Valley Megamall concept store as the biggest one in South East Asia. You will eventually hear about it yourself, or you will see it for yourself as you’re passing by; and you will notice that it is big. You will also notice they have a wider range of […]

iPhone 4ever And Ever, Amen

I’m not one who typically writes about events, nor do I write about technology and gadgets per se. But every now and then, comes along an exception. When Maxis conceptualized the launch of the ( pick one: a. much awaited, b. over-hyped, c. revolutionary, d. all of the above)  iPhone 4, it wasn’t to be a typical event […]

A Slice of Heaven

Posted on October 17, 2010 by marcky Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned. Over the last week, I ate cake. Lots of it. I tried to resist the temptation of sin, but it was too enticing. It all started innocently enough. A harmless glance. Then came the casual intentions. Mere moments later, casual intentions avalanched into unyielding […]
