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!

Avoid toxic people. In some cases it may not be an option (ie work!), but more often than not, it is. It is also common to believe you can get a toxic person to change while interacting with them. You will not get them to change and trying it simply is…

Unfortunately Singapore has a bit of a lacklustre reputation for being boring, sterile, uncultured... especially in comparison to other Asian developed cities like Hong Kong + Tokyo.  Yes it is true that the vibe here is different to those other cities, but I think Singapore is definitely coming into its own and a lot has changed (even in the 3 years I have lived here).
