cooking class...

We are off to Vietnam in a couple of weeks time with the fam and I can't wait!!

It's so hard to find authentic and tasty Vietnamese food in Singapore so I am hanging out for some amazing Viet food and spending time with my parents and second mum.  

Given the lack of available Vietnamese food here, I have been inspired lately to cook more of it at home... I need to get some more cooking lessons from my mama!  Although like a lot of mums, she doesn't really use recipes or measurements and normally cooks based on taste, gut and her experience.

Fortunately for us rookies, we have the interwebs... The Ravenous Couple (thanks Hieu!) and Viet World Kitchen seem to be full of great recipes and of course there are also old faves, Luke Nguyen and those lovely folks at SBS.   Here's hoping that one day, I can cook as well as my mama!

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Today I need to concentrate and write a briefing paper for my boss' boss.  Being in an open plan office it means putting on my headphones and turning on Spotify to listen to their Afternoon Acoustic playlist.  It's my go-to playlist and features this sweet little tune from John Mayer...
