Of damn good South Indian food and an unfortunate wet t-shirt contest

Of damn good South Indian food and an unfortunate wet t-shirt contest
By Lyrical Lemongrass In my office of a hundred odd people, it is easy enough to spot the person who has just been to the loo. With all the newfangled gadgetry in the world, and despite the major renovation of the office toilets a couple of months back, the changes seem to be merely cosmetic. ...

The case of the disappearing giant macaron

The case of the disappearing giant macaron
By Lyrical Lemongrass I was already in bed when Bald Eagle came home from work. As he reached over to kiss me, I could detect a faint smell of coffee on his breath. To be specific, it smelled like caramel latte. To be even more precise, it smelled like the caramel latte macaron I had ...

Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day treats by A Slice of Heaven
By Lyrical Lemongrass Time certainly flies when you’re having fun. It’s been a mixed end-2011/beginning-2012 for me. Memorable events include a car accident that happened in December which tarnished my no-accident-in-25-years-of-driving record. The accident made me realise that shit happens no matter how well you think you’ve orchestrated your life. I rarely nag my husband ...

La Bodega, Bangsar

La Bodega, Bangsar
By Lyrical Lemongrass I’ve always believed that my work life should be kept separate from my personal life, and because of that I’ve rarely spoken about my work on the blog. My friends lead glamorous lives, but mine is office-bound, approximately 12 to 14 hours a day, including some weekends. As a result of more ...

Casbah, Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur
By Lyrical Lemongrass Yoghurt sorbet and stewed apricots I love storytelling. I remember being 7 years old, standing up in front of a fidgety audience of 7 to 9 year olds in school and giving them my best reading of Red Riding Hood. I was clueless as to why I was doing it; all that ...
