Sharing my love for Asian Pork Floss Rolls this Chinese New Year 

We Chinese are a very superstitious lot. And while I don’t necessarily know or practice a lot of these superstitions myself, I think it’s a fun exercise trying to follow the preparations the elders make for Chinese New Year.

A homemade 떡볶이 Tteokbokki Recipe because I’m missing Seoul

In my 25 years of life, I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to a handful of countries. Though I have been to three continents, I can still say with certainty that my heart belongs to Asia. To me, the countries in Asia alone will leave your soul satisfied in every aspect, may it be culture, …

Creamy Chicken Adobo recipe at home with Nestle All Purpose Cream

The Nestle All Purpose Cream #CreateWithCream event I attended last July 9 has done nothing but inspire me to cook up a storm. While I’m typically in the kitchen baking during my free time, these days I surprise even myself with how I feel twice more motivated to cook. Obviously one of the things I’ve …

Getting a sweet fix with some Homemade Matcha Nama Chocolate

My absolute favourite treat to bring home from Japan is without a doubt Royce’s Nama Chocolates. When we get to the airport, it’s an automatic impulse for me to grab a box or two of Champagne and Matcha-flavoured Nama Chocolates. I don’t even have to think about it, especially since the exact same Royce chocolates …

New favourite Japanese snacks, December 2015 edition

By now I think most people have heard about the most recent earthquakes that have created such destruction in Japan and Ecuador. This post is my way of showing solidarity during these difficult times. My prayers go out to all those who have been affected by the earthquake, both in Japan and Ecuador. I’ve only …
