Current Location: Singapore, home.
I hadn't been updating the blog for a year due to my busy schedule. My current focus is baking. I simply love it and spend most of my free time baking bread or assembling cakes.
I love Lyon! The gastronomy capital of France. Food markets everywhere in the morning. Lots of ethnic grocery stores: Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese, African, Arab,Japanese and even Korean. Best of all I can find my frozen Roti Prata* (Spring Home) from Singapore! What a gem.

I still have a kitchen. Living in a small town means lots of cooking at home. The locals seldom frequent restaurants.
I don't think well of processed food with all those hidden preservatives and chemicals added to it as well as other ingredients beyond my understanding(E621, e627, e631, ES51?). Other than occasional premade cans and frozen packages from the supermarket, I prepare most of the meals.

"A Singaporean expat living in Seoul."
"I get very homesick in very often. I find pleasure in preparing a meal from scratch with fresh ingredients. Given that foreign food and ingredients are scarce in Seoul, we will have to make do with whatever ingredients I can lay my hands on. I remain hopeful of finding them soon. South Korea is developing so quickly day by day. New imports are arriving on the shelves of supermarkets."
