How to start getting fit and STAY fit (Part 1) Posted by: | June 8, 2014

It has been a productive Sunday for me. I woke up at 8am, had a healthy breakfast with muesli and fruits, and got to gym by 9am. Did Bodyjam dancing cardio and Bodypump weightlifting cardio classes back to back. Then rushed to buy ingredients to cook lunch for my parents. I made Yaki Udon – […]

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 […]

Roasted Tomato Bruschetta Posted by: | March 26, 2011

So here I am blogging in the dark, during Earth Hour. My first Earth Hour ever in Vietnam. I can’t really tell whether other houses/buildings are doing Earth Hour, as it’s always very dark when I look out my window into my alley at night. It’s one of the reasons why I avoid coming home […]

Stir Fry Pho (Pho Xao) Posted by: | September 23, 2010

After 1.5 weeks buzzing around settling into my home in Hanoi, I realized I am almost at the end of my 2-week break. And why do I not feel rested at all? I can’t really recall the last time I felt truly rested. This move has really been draining me out. I thought once I […]

Pasta with Squid, Tomatoes and Capers Posted by: | July 4, 2010

And yet another week of no blogging. I’m so sorry guys! There are so many changes coming up in my life that I’m just so overwhelmed and can’t even get myself to even watch the latest Nigella Express. Sigh. However, Gym night is a good excuse to cook ahead as I’m always monstrously hungry after […]

Grilled Chicken with Tomato & Mozzarella Panini Sandwich Posted by: | June 25, 2010

I know I haven’t been blogging for ages. And I apologize for that. Trust me, there are nights that I woke up in cold sweat, freaking out that I would lose you readers because of my hiatus period. I might have exaggerated a bit. But there was not a day that went by in the […]

Pasta with Eggplant (Brinjal) and Balsamic Vinegar Posted by: | May 21, 2010

I am extremely tired right now, after a happening day at work and an intensive workout at my Spinning class today, followed by last minute grocery shopping just before shops closed. Fortunately I did not have to worry about dinner tonight. as I warmed up yesterday’s dinner, which still tasted perfectly. That’s what I do. […]

Chicken in Marsala & Dill creme sauce Posted by: | May 13, 2010

Today I had the pleasure of having TL (my long time work buddy) over for dinner. The idea was for him to provide free photography service of me and my food, in exchange for the meal he was shooting. I wish I always have a photographer beside me, snapping away as I cook, instead of […]

Julia Child’s French Omelette Posted by: | May 8, 2010

I recently bought both volumes of Julia Child’s “Mastering The Art of French Cooking”. It’s probably the best cook books I’ve ever bought. There are no attractive photography like other fancy cookbooks, it’s just good old text and hand-drawn illustrations. Super oldschool. But the amount of detail Julia Child gives is amazing. It’s like a […]

Beef Stir Fry with Sautéed New Potatoes and Cherry Tomatoes Posted by: | May 7, 2010

One of my favorite stir fries that my Mom makes is Beef Stir Fry with Potatoes. Her version would typically include Sautéed Potatoes with beef, garlic, and cilantro leaves for flavour and garnishing. It is simple and yet so delicious. However, this week, I made a healthier version, using new potatoes instead of normal potatoes, […]
