To do list:

Post that will come eventually:

– Tim Ho Wun – michellin star yum cha (Hong Kong) – TICK
– something about tea – white? green? red? black?
– how to cook eggs
– mum’s fish sauce recipe (was meant to pass this onto a friend… a LONG time ago)
– macarons around melbourne (maybe after i’ve tried a few more places =P)

Other highlights of Asia:

– HongKong – egg tarts, Yung Kee (roast goose, fried rice) – TICK
– Southern India – curry (fish, chicken, beef, chickpea, cheese), breads, teas
– China – Teochew flaky pastry bean paste moon cake
– Macao – Lord Stow’s Portuguese tarts, steamed worm custard, almond biscuits
– Malaysia – laksa, Melaka Nyona cuisine
– Singapore – crab, hawker stalls

Project #1: Mum’s soups

A bowl of ‘soup’ every day, will keep the doctor away…

Though not exactly how the saying goes, but it is surely what I need everyday =). I am without doubt the biggest fan of mum’s soups and am usually the first to taste it. In an attempt to pay tribute for her endeavour to provide us with refreshing-appetising soup everyday, I’ve decided to keep a brief diary of each days soup, the ingredients and maybe the recipe too. Though they are predominantly Chinese broths, so things may get lost in translation. But I’ll try my best.

    I feel like i’m spamming your blog.

    • Spamming yes, but I love it! Maybe a little better, but I didn’t take many… clearly I suffered from “eat before photo syndrome” A LOT in Asia… so when looking back I felt like I didn’t take photos of much food.
