Waffled with Waffles

Waffle, a dessert that looks like a badminton or tennis racquet, or a round net. It is a pastry that is BEST eaten with jam, syrup, butter, or ice cream. 

Growing up, the closest I got to enjoying a waffle was at A&W Restaurants. Till today, A&W waffles do bring back memories.


As the years went by, the art of crafting waffles developed. Waffle World took waffles one step further. I tried their savoury and sweet waffles. More ingredients and flavours were added to the waffles menu. Their Salted Egg Yolk Waffle was uniquely named. Much like the Chocotop, the salted egg yolk was hardened on the ice cream. It’s an interesting, yet weird mash of salty salted egg yolk and sweet ice cream. However, there was still room for improvement in my world of waffles. I held on to the believe that there are better waffles out there.

Fast forward to today, waffles are hipster! Ate waffles at Antipodean Cafe at Atria Shopping Mall. Ate their Blueberry Ice Cream Waffle and Butterscotch and Ice Cream Waffle. Even though they were as simple as before, but these Antipodean waffles were softer and sweeter. Honey overflowed from the waffles!

Then I was introduced to the waffles at Fluffed Cafe & Dessert Bar in Taman Paramount. Deconstructed their Tiramisu Peanut Butter Waffles. Artsy designs, good use of composition, and the mixture of flavours blended very well together. The peanut butter ice cream went really well with the charcoal waffle. I’m Fluffed!

However, I was fluffed from the inside out by Inside Scoop in Damansara Jaya. Their nutella waffle blew me away! Nutella is heaven! Nutella and waffle mixed together is another universe in itself. The nutella waffle was topped with chocolate mint and vanilla flavoured ice creams.

A special mention to my #foodyfanstravel adventure in UK. The UK waffles were a class of their own. This particular waffle was from the site of the first coffee house in England. This site is none other than The Grand Cafe, befitting of its name.


Fast forward to today, waffles are hipster!

15.01.2015: Too Oooh Want Five


Today is the 15th day of 2015. We are 15 days into 2015. No, it’s not Chinese New Year, but soon it will be.

We have done our count downs. We have cheered, screamed, kissed and hugged in front of the fireworks. We have made our resolutions. Yet, I’ll like to take this time to reflect on the past. Let’s go back 1 year. No, 2 years ago to 2013.


If I were to describe my 2013 in 1 word, it would be “travelling”. It was the year I ventured into the unknown and expanded my boundaries.


Inasmuch travelling was the main activity, a lot of eating was involved. I tasted authentic Australian coffee and barbecue, Italian pizza and pasta, Korean kimchi, and Japanese ramen. With all the good instas and filters of food throughout the year, the idea of FoodyFans was born.

I even explored the outbacks of beautiful Australia – Fremantle, Swan Valley, Hillarys Boat Harbour, Lancelin, and Rottnest Island. It was nature time!


Fast forward to 2014, the rate of uploading Facebook albums (monthly) and posting Instagram (thrice weekly) have dwindled. It was the year I ventured into something untested and unproven for me – writing.

I have always wanted to blog but procrastinated at the thought of it. But today, I’m proud at where it is today with the support of family, friends and the WordPress community. This blog is growing day-by-day at a steady pace.


This blog was setup as an extension of my instagram account: @foofyfans. If you have not seen it, go check it out. There, you’ll find awesome, delicious, mouth-watering filtered & heavily edited instas of food.

Once again, I wish you all a happy, blessed and prosperous 2015.
