Welcome to Bread et Butter!
I’m Su-yin, a twenty-something year old from Penang, Malaysia who is now living in London.
I always had an innate love for food, but only started cooking when I was in university, as eating out on a daily basis wasn’t an option. Over the years, something that was originally a necessity became a hobby, and it was this love for cooking that led to the discovery of food blogs.
I’m OCD-esque, and have a tendency to plate and photograph food repeatedly until I am satisfied (or until the food is in danger of going cold…). Despite this, I can’t seem to follow recipes strictly, though I try to do so when baking!
Any comments or feedback will be greatly appreciated, and feel free to drop me a line at breadetbutterblog[at]gmail[dot]com.

Fantastic blog! All the best and looking forward to more food and more photos!
you have an amazingly delicious blog, im glad I found it :))
Oh man, this website of yours is overly mouth watering… LOVE YOUR PHOTO’s!! Should be a freelance food photographer !!! HUGSS
Hello, Su-yin!! I’m so thrilled to have discovered your blog via Twitter! So glad to have found another Malaysian who shares the same passion!!
I also realized my obsessive-compulsive baking & cooking behavior during my undergraduate years in the U.S. (as eating out wasn’t an option.) The addiction grew thereafter! I also love to style & photograph food, especially those coming from my own kitchen. Such therapeutic!
Oh, yea … I perfectly understand your love for foods especially when you’re Penang-nite! I do enjoy visiting here! Will keep coming back for more! =D
Keep up with the great work! You’ve inspired me!
Thanks for the kind comments, guys. 🙂 Much appreciated.
Girl!, you definitely rocks! Keep pushing! 🙂
Hey fellow OCD er, nice to know there are more of use around 😉
Hi Su-Yin, this is the first time i’ve seen your blog, but i will definitely be coming back! thanks for all the great recipes, and its so nice to have authentic malaysian food in my house!
You’re from Penang!! My mum is from Penang, and we would head there a few times a year to visit my grandmother and load up on the good food! I’m living in London as well. Your pictures are lovely, OCD is proving to be excellent!
Hee, any excuse to be OCD. 😉
Came across your website on my quest to find out where I can buy tau cheong or tow cheong in London.
Great pictures of your foods and already my tastebuds are running high !!
I wonder if you can help me. I cannot read Mandarin and am at a lost to find a make/brand in Chinatown London of bottled tow cheong/tau cheong.
Can you help me ? What brand do you get for your dishes?
Terima kasih !
I use the “Mee Chun” brand – http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3036/2284953950_71b39f5986.jpg Not as good as the ones you get back home, but when you’re desperate you settle for anything! 😛
Am glad you’re liking the blog!
U have an awesome blog! You know what? I saw your peanut cookies picture and I guess that you were from Penang and I’m right!
Thanks for sharing! =)
Thanks!! It’s always great to hear feedback from readers. 🙂
Seriously beautiful site.
I found your blog looking for kuih bangkit recipe. You have a great blog!
Hi! I’ve nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award because I like what I see! You can get all the info here: http://terriskitchenuk.wordpress.com/2013/02/28/one-lovely-blog-award/
hello! may I know what is the name of cookies in your web pic?? *the one with colorful icing on top*
I really looking for that, but can’t find it anywhere…
The ones in my photo are the ones I got in Malaysia, which I’ve always known as ‘atap chee’ biscuits (that’s in Hokkien). I think McVities does them in tiny snack packets though, they’re called ‘iced gems’.
Hi Su Yin. First timer to your blog and I’m so glad I’ve found it! Being a Malaysian in England myself I completely understand the story behind every food entry you’ve posted 😊 Keep up the good work ya! Definitely gonna try out the peanut cookies recipe for the upcoming CNY 😘
Thats a beautiful and inspiring blog! I’m glad I’m found it, warmly, Bridget
