Sorry for not updating the blog for so long! Here's another Switzerland Travelogue that we went in August last year (oops!) On one of the days, we took a day trip to Mount Rigi from Lucerne - the views were so extremely stunning that no words can fully describe her beauty. Read on to find out more about the Queen of the Mountains!

Hello, I’m back after a very long, self-proclaimed Christmas and New Year break (sorry the laziness just kicked in and I couldn’t get any post up). But, it’s an extremely rewarding break and I’m finally back to finish the last 2 Switzerland travelogues!…
We did a day trip to Mount Rigi from Lucerne - getting there was easy with Swiss Travel Pass and the hikes there were simply amazing!

New travelogue on Switzerland is now up! We took a day trip to Bern, the capital of Switzerland. Head to the blog to check out what we did/saw!

Do you know what is the capital of Switzerland? To be honest, I didn’t know it too (I’d always thought it’s Zurich) until I reached Bern. Bern is a charming city that is the 4th most populous city in Switzerland, with a population of about 140,000. We…

Lu Rou Fan (滷肉饭), which means "Braised Meat Rice" literally, is an extremely popular and incredibly delicious Taiwanese specialty. My version is made with pork belly and it's so good that I always eat a huge bowl of rice so I can scoop a lot of these tasty meat mixture on top!

This sour and spicy Nonya achar with a hint of sweetness is the perfect side dish to go with rice, satay, chicken rice... it keeps well in the fridge for up to a month but I doubt it will last that long!

Achar (or acar) is a type of pickle popular in Asian cuisine, generally made with vegetables. Different types of vegetables, usually cucumber, carrots and cabbage, are pickled in a vinegar concoction. This sourish pickle is an excellent side dish – it…

Pasta Aglio e Olio with Sun-Dried Tomatoes An easy aglio e olio recipe that allows the intense and salty flavours of sun-dried tomatoes to shine. Simple and delicious in less than 30 minutes!

I received some dry-packed sun-dried tomatoes as a gift when my friend went for a holiday in Greece recently (thanks!) A quick Google shows that they are usually used in pastas and salads etc. So I made a very simple aglio e olio so that the intense…

New travelogue on Switzerland is now up! We are now at Zermatt to see the amazing and magnificent Matterhorn (4,478 metres above sea level). We head up to Rothorn (3,103 metres above sea level) to catch the stunning views of Matterhorn and the surrounding alps, then did a 4-hour 5-Lake Hike (5-Seenweg), which was one of the most beautiful hikes ever.

This is my new favourite mushroom soup recipe - rich and incredibly delicious! Slow caramelisation of the mushrooms is the key to extract all the flavours!

As I came from sunny Singapore (we only have hot and hotter seasons), the four seasons became quite a special thing after I moved overseas. Seasonal vegetables and fruits meant nothing to me when I was still living in Singapore – we usually can get them…

Delicious Classic Chocolate Tart made with the help of my new kitchen assistance - the Kenwood Chef Sense!

I love tarts – give me anything with a tart crust and I will devour it immediately and probably go for a second serving. But tart making can be quite a chore because of the tart base – I don’t own a food processor yet so all the rubbing/cutting of butter…
