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

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

It’s still dark when I woke up in the morning. The air was really chilly, too, because last night we left the windows opened. I went to the kitchen and put a pot of water on the stove. We still don’t have water heater, you know, so I need to boil some water for Yaseen

I’m excited about the coming trip. It’s that time of the year again when we can drive down south to visit our family in Kerala. As usual, I will be getting something for the kids, Yaseen’s cousins. My in-laws don’t encourage us to spoil them, but we can’t help because we want to do just

When I was a kid, 70% of protein in my food was from fresh water fish. I lived near one of most gorgeous and fertile rivers in the northeast of Thailand, Namphong River, where it was flourished with fish, shrimp and clams. Fish like Tilapia and Snakehead Fish was one of the stable food of

In my childhood, during summer vacation in Thailand, I used to work so many random jobs to earn extra cash that I could splurge on Sailor Moon stickers. We weren’t poor, but my parents always encouraged me to work so I could learn something from the experiences. I used to work at a gas station.
