The other day, Yaseen asked me what weather we’re in right now. I was speechless for a whole minute because I truly didn’t know what kind of weather we were in at the moment. I told him “Well, we’re kind of in the end of rainy season and on the way to winter.” He seemed

It’s another busy week in this household. Yaseen is having mid-term exams at the moment, and Sadik is in the south for the conference. It’s tough when I have to run the show alone. Usually, Sadik helps me get Yaseen ready for school while I cook them breakfast and pack lunch. Now I have to

Vegan Bombay Sandwich

Bombay Sandwich 1

I have been incorporating more vegetarian and plant based food in my diet this summer. The reason why I even considered this is because summer really kills my appetite. I have been noticing the boys left the chunks of meat on their plates, too. I guess the meat is too heavy for the stomach at

25 years ago, a bowl of noodle soup in Thailand was about 3 Baht ($0.10). In that bowl, there were soft noodle, super tender pieces of meat and bean sprouts swimming in delicious boiling broth. There were also fresh basil, a little coriander leaves and some chopped scallions on top which purled aromatic fragrances through

Winter is slowly blowing away from the city. At night the hot air already sneaks in to our bedrooms. We need to crank up the fan to sleep now. I put my winter clothes away and tug the thick blankets in a storage under my bed. I never like summer. It makes me feel tired

Beetroot Noodle

Beetroot Noodle 2

I love good food, and moreover, I appreciate good ingredients. I think cooking takes your relationship with food to another level. We normally eat out twice a week, and we order take away about three times a week. But lately, I have been cooking at home more, and I promise it has nothing to do

Sadik and I plated pumpkin seeds in the pots 3 weeks ago. They sprouted very quickly and now the tiny plants have thick luscious green leaves. Our obsession with growing stuff seems to increase every day since we worked on our small balcony. Now we have dill, basil, red spinach, and even a small kumquat

Fried Tilapia with Garlic and Basil

Fried Tilapia 3

So, often people ask me “where is the best place for Thai food in this city?” My answer always remains the same— we don’t usually buy Thai food outside because we cook that at home. When we go out, we usually look for other stuff. The truth is it’s really a big point of the
