I used to make fun of a friend who had never visited Malaysia, even though he had grown up a hop and skip away in Sembawang. No longer. I had to eat my words recently when I realised that I was totally clueless about the famous Malaysian culinary tradition of lok lok. On the off-chance [...]

It is no secret that I love cakes, so I got lucky earlier this month when TCC and Robert Timms kindly sent me a Christmas log cake each to write about. My verdict: Both joints offer substantial cakes that will easily feed ten to twelve people, and by golly, they both look and taste good. [...]
