The weather has been very cool and gloomy. The inside of my house has not received any sunlight for two weeks now. It doesn’t rain that much, but the sky is really dark. Actually, I like this ambience. It seems awfully cozy and mysterious in a way. My mind wanders to a place like the

We always love the vibrant scene of our local fish market. It was always crowded, noisy, and colorful. Last Sunday, Sadik and I went to buy fresh seafood. We want to get some squid for dinner sometimes this week. Our fish monger tried to sell us giant squids when we told him we only need

When we went to Thailand last June, my cousin got us deep fried mushrooms. At first, I seriously didn’t know what it was. All I knew was it was something meaty and crispy. Two massive bags of the crispiness later, I found out that it was mushrooms. I couldn’t believe it. I wouldn’t have guessed

Sweet Corn Mayo Sandwich

It’s very difficult to feed a vegetarian menu to my family these days. If there’s no piece of meat, it doesn’t feel like a meal.
