Strawberry Victoria Sponge Cake Posted by: | June 24, 2012
 

Throwing a high tea party is fun. The cakes are just a bonus. The main fun lies in choosing the prettiest cake to bake to be the star of the party. Throwing a farewell high tea is not as fun though, but still a reason for me to find a gorgeous cake to bake to […]

Potato Leek Soup, and what’s to come… Posted by: | May 30, 2012
 

I have an announcement to make. From now on, I will be blogging more frequently, but mostly with casual iPhone/instagram shots so that I can focus more energy on cooking, eating, and writing about food. Well, that’s just an excuse for my real reason, which is that I have moved most of my photography props […]

Happy 2012! And it’s been exactly one year since I re-launched this blog on my own server and domain (this time last year, I declared it was an important step and a new beginning towards my blogging identity – and it really did make a big difference). One year has passed since, and though I […]

Christmas baking: Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies Posted by: | January 2, 2012
 

(For some reason this entry posted on 18 December has mysteriously disappeared off my blog, so I’m reposting it again. In case anyone wonders why I’m posting about Christmas Baking way after Christmas…) December is my favorite month of the year (next to my birthday month, June, of course). It gives me an excuse to […]

Door To My Dreams Posted by: | December 6, 2011
 

I can’t believe I would be writing this one day. Sometimes I still find myself pinching myself, but this is my life now. I am living my dream, literally.   I remember when I first started this blog, I was seeking an outlet, an escape from my everyday life. Never would I have thought that […]

It’s my second weekend of hectic shuffling across town to go to my baking lessons on both Saturday & Sunday, while trying to maintain a social life and also spend time at home to eat & cook with family. But truth is, this past two weekends have been my most rewarding weekends in Hanoi since […]

Apologies again for my lack of blogging. But all the work travelling has taken a toll on my blogging routine. However, it’s all going to change from now, because I have started a Baking course at Le Croissant bakery, and will be baking at the Bakery every Saturday & Sunday from now for 6 weeks. […]

I’m so excited! After participating in a few Delicious Vietnam blog events in the past, now it’s finally my turn to host one myself! It’s amazing to see how many people around the world are blogging about Vietnamese food, and it kinda makes me feel bad for not blogging about Vietnamese food more often even […]

Vietnamese Dessert: Chè Cốm Posted by: | July 31, 2011
 

The past 2 months have been eventful and turbulent at the same time, which unfortunately kept me away from this little blog that normally would be a reflection of my life status. If you see entries coming up regularly, it means I’m contented, stable and happy. If you see no entries for more than 3 […]
