Stir Fried Squid with Yellow Curry Powder

We have been very careful about purchasing seafood since an incident last year. I have to say that it has been hard because the fresh quality supplies don’t come around very easily where we live. But that’s something we have to live with, and it gets us scared to think what will happen to food

Thai Shrimp and Glass Noodle Salad

When I was a kid, afterschool time was the most anticipating time of the day. It’s not only because the tiring lessons were over, but it’s time to find something to eat after classes. When the bell rang, we would find several food carts at the school gate. This is a usual scene for most

10 Minutes Minced Meat Noodle

Our summer vacation has been a little low key. There’s not much happening because Sadik has been busy with work. But at the end of the month, we might drive down to Kerala to relish the magic of the rainfall. On the weekend, when we have a chance to drive out of town, I enjoy looking

Scallion Omelet

In the middle of April, the sky is harsh. The temperature here is baking hot every day. At night, I barely get some sleep because of the heat. Before summer was in full bloom, we thought about getting a new air cooler because the old one hasn’t been working properly. We thought about it a

Steamed Savory Egg Custard

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I crave baby food. It’s weird I know. Super weird. I like soft banana pudding that they make for baby. I love Bavarian custard. Oh my God, sometimes I eat Cerelac Powder. If you have babies, you know what Cerelac is. Anyway, in my defence, why shouldn’t we

Mushroom with Yellow Bean Paste

The weather has turned boiling hot in my city. It’s strange because in the morning the temperature is quite cool. On Sunday, when we made a spontaneous trip out of town, we were surprised to see that it was only 14 C in the morning, and the mercury rose throughout the day, so by the

Prawn Curry with Rice Vermicelli

The other day, I had a long conversation with my friend about the quality of food we’re eating. The produce in the market has a dangerous amount of pesticide, the chickens are injected with hormones and they’re raised in poor environments, and the fish and other seafood carry toxins as our oceans are polluted. The chat

Noodle with Chicken and Mushroom Sauce When we travel, I feel like floating in an endless dream. It feels strangely familiar, so comfortable like I am home all along. Nature speaks to me, and it reminds me of my hometown and my childhood. The only thing that is always missing when we travel is the kitchen. After being

It’s holiday season everywhere. I can feel the festive vibe in the air. Even if you’re not celebrating Christmas or New Year, there’re still several reasons to take a break and to be grateful about life. Yaseen is having a 2-weeks break from school during New Year. We consider this a generous gift. If there

Stir Fried Calamari with Chili and Garlic

I don’t always stick to the plan, but there’s one thing I’m very punctual perpetually. Sunday morning, it’s time to visit our local fish market. At the local fish markets here, the fish trucks arrived every Sunday so it’s the perfect time to get fresh seafood. Morning is ideal because the fish is just unloaded
