jeaw-hon-2

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

Miso Soup

Miso Soup

I love miso soup that is served along with the meal in Japanese restaurants. My boys absolutely hate it so it benefits me because I can have two extra bowls of soup every time. At home, I serve miso soup selfishly in a big bowl just for me when I make Japanese Inspired meal. I

Noodle with Miso and Mushroom Broth

It rained at 9.30 am here, yesterday. It wasn’t much and not at all satisfying but it cooled the air down enough to have a thought for a soup. The smell of wet mud rose from the ground to our 4th floor apartment. I opened the window and invited the cold spray in. Anything hot

Garlic Chicken Noodle Soup

I use a lot of garlic in my cooking. It’s like a strict beginning of a ritual, starting with a smoking hot pan of peanut oil and then some garlic. Immediately that fragrance rises from the pan, broken cloves are scorched and turn into gorgeous golden flakes. That is when the oil is flavored, and

Chinese Herbal Chicken Soup

Whenever Yaseen caught a fever, it’s extremely difficult to make him take medicine. Do you have the same problem with your kid? I don’t know what to do.
