when baking, follow directions.. when cooking, go by your own taste.. ~ Laiko Bahrs
i’m Ling, a full time housewife, married to a dear N, mommy to furkids Zoey and Viggo the felines..
i’m a Malaysian Chinese born and raised in the idyllic and peaceful Kuala Terengganu, Terengganu, and currently living in Petaling Jaya, Selangor..
when i first started this blog (Devoted To Yum was formerly registered as Chapter V – whytevee.com) ages ago, the purpose was, and still is, to document and share recipes and the practical wisdom that i’ve gained through my own personal observations, encounters and experiences in the kitchen..
entries will be mainly food related (mostly Asian, with others in between), and will be updated as regularly as i possibly can manage to.. majority of recipes will focus mostly on mains, with snacks or desserts in between.. do not expect detailed measurements for ingredients, however.. i don’t measure every gram/liter of ingredients i use in my cooking (unless the recipe relies on it).. i was taught to estimate everything using sight, touch and taste from day one, and that’s how it’s always been in my kitchen.. and for some family heirloom dishes, recipes can’t be shared in full detail, i’m sorry about that..
no, i am not a chef, nor am i a professional in the culinary field.. just a married woman who loves to cook in her humble little kitchen in the sky and wishes to share her passion with the rest of the world..
other contents will be jottings of mundane daily life and whatever else that comes to mind..
* if you wish to use any content in this site, be it photos or text, please be courteous and ask for my permission beforehand.. or at the very least, mention credits to this site, or place a link, or whatever..i spent much precious time and sweat producing the posts.. so, please respect this simple request of mine..
all in all, may it be an interesting journey ahead in this blog.. do drop me a comment or two if there are any questions about the recipes, or even just to say “Hi”..
have a nice day, and happy reading/browsing~
