The cold rainy weather we’ve been experiencing these days make it perfect for steamboat meals, especially for the spicy Sichuan type. If you’re familiar with the Sichuan cuisine, you’ll know that it has very bold flavours, especially in terms of spiciness which results from the generous use of their chilli peppers, and their very own unique flavour of Sichuan pepper. People of Sichuan are very fond of hot and spicy taste, hence you can certainly expect this if you’re dining in an authentic Sichuan cuisine here in Malaysia.
It is no surprise that I live to eat, with street food being my absolute favorite type of cuisine. Having said that, it makes me feel pretty blessed to be born as a Malaysian, where street food are an abundance and you can almost eat at any hour of the day. I live and grew up in Kuala Lumpur where the street food here are one of the best ones you can have. But there is an exception to that statement of course, because there is another place which can rival Kuala Lumpr and it is the 'Pearl of the Orient' of Malaysia, the Penang island!
It was probably a couple of months back that I first recalled seeing this cute bee logo, intriguing me to find out what they represent. Back then, what I knew is that the logo represent a new app in town which is called honestbee, an app and website which enables you to shop online for your groceries. Fast forward to now, honestbee have officially launched in Malaysia just a couple of weeks back in The Bee, Publika. (Did you notice what they did here by choosing to launch at The Bee?)
There is a quote that goes like this, “The finer things in life are acquired tastes.” This is something I believe in, simply because of how true it is. A simple survey to your friends, friend will show why. You can ask a handful of people if they liked oysters, and I can assure you that not all will say “YES!”. Things like caviar, foie gras, oysters, wine … are just some examples of finer things which usually requires an acquired taste. For me, I absolutely love oysters and I’m still learning to appreciate wine. So, when I was recently invited by Boozeat (http://www.boozeat.com/) for the event; Wine Tasting with Mr Pedro Pereira, I was happy to perhaps be able to learn more about wines.
