Ever wondered who's the cook in Felicia and Jeffrey's relationship? It seems like the lovebirds actually share the kitchen duties.

On Mother's Day, the celebrity couple joined forces to put together a meal for Felicia's mum. The actress took to Instagram to share a snap of the ambrosial dishes she cooked up with the help of Jeffrey.

She captioned it, "Jeffrey and I cooked a simple Mother's Day meal for my Mom today! it looks simple but we took awhile to figure out how to operate with minimal equipment and time. Makes me think of how Mom always gives us the best with whatever time and finances she had on hand and how good quality home cooked food has always been placed on the table for me since I was a little girl. Thank you Mommy we love you!".

The Malaysian singer might be most famous for her Mandopop love songs that tug at the heartstrings, but Fish also knows how to rustle up a good meal. She shared her love for hearty cooking like this mixed noodles with spring scallions on Instagram.

The ballad singer who learnt how to cook from her mother says that the secret behind serving up a delicious bowl of mixed noodles with spring scallions is separating the fried scallions from the oil used to fry the scallions. Leave the fried scallions and oil to sit before mixing them together in a glass jar.

Just mixed everything I want in a jar. Add in almond milk and yogurt of your choice. There's plenty of recipes on Google!".

Food wastage is a growing problem in Singapore. Based on statistics from the National Environment Agency (NEA), while it accounts for 10 per cent of the waste generated in Singapore, only 14 per cent of the food waste is recycled and the rest of it is disposed.

Media personality Rosalyn Lee made a case for using leftover food to reduce food waste by whipping up this scrumptious plate of linguine made with canned sardines, red onions, garlic, chilli powder, dried oregano, olive oil and butter. She topped it all off with a ramen-style boiled egg with runny yolk which she learnt how to make from a YouTube video.
