APA KHABAR!

I’m Davina Goh, a performer and plant-based lifestyle advocate.

I’m based in Malaysia, and “Apa Khabar?” means “How are you?” in Bahasa. Welcome to my page!
For the past few years, I’ve been using social media to post pictures of the food I was making, and my friends, excited about my creations, have been bugging me to get a blog going. So here it is, finally! This is my space to share recipes, green living tips, and places to find great plant-based food in the Klang Valley, where I live, and aim to expand this to other countries I get to travel to.

It is a huge aspiration of mine to create a happier, healthier Malaysia through a plant-based lifestyle. If you would like to be a part of this movement together, drop me a line! I’d love to explore ideas with you.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy my website! It is a pleasure and honor to share my passion with you.

Freshly squeezed!

Cafe Scouting: Pǐnxīn Vegan Cuisine

What is it about Penang that sets its food apart from the rest of Malaysia? Could it be something in the water? The fresh island air? Maybe just the Pride of the Penangite? Whatever it is, it attracts visitors not just from the rest of the country but also the world over.

During my first year of going vegetarian in 2012, I happened to find myself in Penang for work, and found eating out to be an absolute breeze. Thanks to the strong Buddhist presence in the community, vegetarian food is very accessible.

Going back there as a vegan a few years later, was it just as easy? I feel Yes, but that’s also because some new places have popped up since I was last there. Next to Kuala Lumpur – or dare I say even more so – George Town is a Malaysian location to be at when it comes to making plant-based discoveries.

One of the ‘IT’ places for vegan food right now in the vibrant little town is Pǐnxīn Vegan Cuisine. Stylish setting, fair prices and some of the tastiest Malaysian food I’ve ever had the honour of sampling, Pǐnxīn Vegan Cuisine ticks all my boxes in memorable dining experiences.

The next time you plan a trip to the Pearl of the Orient, make sure this cafe stays high on your to-do list!

There aren’t many fully vegan establishments around Klang Valley, so when a new one opens up, the vegans are on it like ants to sugar. Sala’s ant trail has only gotten more manic has since opening just a year and a few months ago.  With […]

Whenever I catch sight of a new plant-based cafe or restaurant around town, I make an immediate beeline for it. Not because I’m necessarily hungry, but because I have a genuine concern about how long it will survive in the, for lack of a better […]

For the past three years, I have been hearing stories from my husband about the mystical land of Koh Phangan. He has been making numerous visits to this small Thai island for the sole purpose of attending silent retreats, but he has also been telling […]

With its peculiar but charming name, Welcome Vegetarian specializes in ‘Chap Fan’ (pronounced Ch-ah-p F-ah-n), or ‘Mixed Rice’, a self-service dining concept where you are given a plate of rice, and you line up along a row of dishes, picking whatever you wish to go […]
