The Redemption Broth - Jeremiah Tan

"My biggest regret in life is that my mother never got to see that I have turned over a new leaf."

Jeremiah Tan's voice was almost breaking as he uttered those words in the middle of our conversation.

Malaysia Boleh! - The Spirit of Nanyang Cuisine

Having been to Malaysia Boleh at Jurong Point previously to savor the delicious Penang Chendol and wanton noodles, I was very privileged to be invited again by one of the owners of the establishment to try out the rest of their fabulous fare.

The place is as busy and as crowded as before, and the 17 stalls that sell the authentic Malaysian street food were all doing bustling business that Saturday morning.
