I must confess, when anyone asks me to whip up a meal, I would break out in cold sweat. Because the last time I did it, my friends told me straight to my face I’m not suited for the kitchen. How disheartening! Of course, I’m not the sort who gives up easily & with much practice, restaurant standard food was no meat feat for this tough cookie! So Agri, how’d you go from total noob to master chef in such a short time-span?


Alright alright, the practice part was far from the truth, & no I didn’t engage a last minute helper nor did I enrol in a cooking crash course. If you’re clueless about the ABC’s of cooking just like me & you’re in need to impress your loved ones pronto, MEAT SAUCERY can solve them all. In short, MEAT SAUCERY offers healthy, high-quality frozen meals that have been prepared with its revolutionary techniques to deliver top-notch quality food to you.


Even pricing-wise, they’re very reasonably priced which is why I keep coming back to purchase the AKETARE WAGYU STEAKS & PROVINCIAL FILLET OF SALMON! Honestly, I was never a fan of cooked salmon until I had the one here! It’s so easy to prepare, all you have to do is remove the contents from the frozen pack & heat it up! My favorite way to eat it is to slightly pan fry it over high heat!


In case you’re wondering, MEAT SAUCERY is not a walk-in restaurant but they however offer PRIVATE CHEF DINING services. The founder is so nice to organize this mini gathering for my girls to try out some the dishes I’ve been raving to them about! Our bellies were very happy at the end of it all, thank you so much! Prepare to feast with your eyes people!





Trust me, it tastes as good as it looks! There’s something about MEAT SAUCERY’S secret marinades that left us wanting for more!

Meanwhile, here’s a sneak peek of the studio photoshoot work I did in KL!




Have a good weekend everyone! Stay tuned to my next update on my HK BIRTHDAY TRIP!

as my appetite grows

Snippets of the previous week. Simple Japanese meal during lunchtime. Nice to get away from the extremely unforgiving air-conditioning at my workplace albeit awhile! Time to defrost.

Was at Absinthe with Pauline at the start of the week for some good food. It’s no surprise that our dinner usually starts really late.

Time to indulge in some white truffle! I had the Carpaccio of Hokkaido Scallops, White Truffle Shavings, Fava Beans & Hazelnut which was so extremely appetizing I wasn’t quite in the mood to share!

When it comes to eating, I just go all the way not thinking about tomorrow. Pauline’s always such a darling to allow me to meddle with her main course! Needless to say, I’m always the one devouring the steak.

Korean BBQ session at Hyang To Gol with my other half from Black & Blonde. Seems like we’re having an even better bond after the show despite getting on each other’s nerves countless times!

You know it’s funny how every food session with me makes everyone at the dinner table anxious about going to the gym afterwards, teehee! It’s only meat people, you need to chill!

There was also dinner at La Villa with Deb.

Simple chill-out time with Deb whom I haven’t seen in forever. Way too much to catch up on & it could go on & on till the wee hours.

Totally proud of the fact that we didn’t over-order this time round & finished everything to its last bit.

Thank you ClubCouture for keeping me lovingly clothed in your amazing sailor-style romper. It’s such a versatile piece which I could wear from day to night! Not forgetting how incredibly comfy it is!

Took time off to do a shoot with David Fo at The Organic Supermarket sometime past week too. Let’s take a look at some behind-the-scenes. This shoot was a lot of fun!

David Fo & I make a good duo on & off work, he’s such a good sport! On set, he goes all serious & professional, just like a headmaster. We decided to go crazy and wear apparels that’s not quite possible with our humid weather! Wheee!

Alright, here’s some of the pics he’s sent over. I can’t wait to receive them all! Also, thank you Zhi Hui for creating a different makeup look for each outfit change. I love you transform me into character.

Heading out to lunch now, I shan’t let the Monday blues get to me today. Maybe I should dress up in a dash of pink to perk myself up!

A Great Fun Meal With MooJaa

Had just wrapped up a shoot earlier & was starving by then. We were already grumpy from the lack of food & about to erupt. Definitely not a nice sight to bicker on the streets. MooJaa to our rescue!

Who knew Keong Saik Road was filled with hidden gems? With Moo Ka Ta outlets popping all over the island, we decided to jump on the bandwagon to see what’s the craze all about!Today I’ve got my eyes on MooJaa!

Moo Ka Ta literally means ‘Pork Skillet’ in Thai and refers to the special cooking apparatus created to enjoy both barbecue & hot pot at the same time.

A trough of soup sits on a crock of charcoal, and a dome shaped grill is placed on the trough, allowing the smoke from the charcoal to waft up to the grill, perfuming the meats with some seriously fragrant wok’s breath.

A must-try here is their signature Cheese Balls, crispy at the first bite & subsequently when the warm cheese oozes out, it melts in your mouth slowly. Super awesome to the max!

If you’re health conscious, you’re gonna love MooJaa. Oxidized, clumpy meat exposed to room temperature should be the least of your concerns! Ingredients here are super fresh because the Head Chef News personally handpicks the seafood & meat every morning & marinates it with her secret recipe that is MSG free.

Aside from that, only quality Binchotan Japanese Charcoal is used here. Let’s not worry about soot getting into our food!

A cube of pork lard is placed at the top of the dome. Whilst waiting for it to melt into unctuous fatty goodness, you can always sip on the homemade Thai Iced Tea, definitely my favourite, with the sweetness done to perfection.

The pork lard step is essential because it adds such great fragrance & crisp to the meat barbecued on the dome. Boy am I excited to sink my teeth into the tender & juicy meat! Don’t you dare steal mine!

Five minutes into my dinner at MooJaa, I actually thought I was enjoying my barbeque & hot-pot in a bustling eatery in one of Bangkok’s many streets. Felt right at home here!

Another must-try is the two popular dipping sauces Head Chef News prepares from scratch with 31 different ingredients. The sauce involves six straight hours of non-stop stirring so that it doesn’t char or burn. Wow I can never have that kind of patience.

Plus, it’s made fresh weekly in small batches so it doesn’t go stale. The Spicy BBQ & Sweet Sour Seafood Sauce are full of tangy, umami flavours that enhances the good quality meat. Definitely no store bought variety for MooJaa’s diners.

Those squeamish about smelling like meat after a night out, don’t fret! MooJaa’s in-table ventilation system prevents the smoke from even reaching your face, perfect for vainpots like me. The fully air-conditioned restaurant also keeps you cool for as long as you like. Hurray to no ugly sweat patches!

MooJaa also offers more upmarket options for those with discerning palates – Kurobuta Pork and Angus Beef are available for you to Moo Ka Ta. No luncheon meat or cheap hot dogs- instead, expect Hokkaido Scallops and Surimi Crab Sticks all of which we had! Eat like a king & make merry like there’s no tomorrow.

We came here as hungry monsters & left as highly satisfied diners! Friends of ours that we’ve recommended here gave the thumbs up too. MooJaa doesn’t disappoint! It’s always a great fun meal with your loved ones when you’re here.

MooJaa is located at 25 Keong Saik Road. Please call 6536 4780 for reservations!
