I’ve been trying to cook healthier and eat better this year so that means less instant noodles (and less Tetra Pak soup stock). Made delicious laksa for the laksa addict in the family using the recipe of a British lady (ironic yes, but it doesn’t matter especially when it is so easy to prepare and tastes so good) with the prettiest cookbook ever.
I also adapted another one of her recipes using J’s leftover pasta sauce from the night before. Savory brunches are the way to go.
The zesty flavors of Mexico recreated at home in this Sopa de Lima-inspired carrot soup. No recipe this time.

The fact that they have added an illustration of durian packed in a box makes me laugh. It’s also good to know that there is no fine imposed on those caught with durian.

It was late autumn in Shanghai when I first checked out for myself the cutting edge concept store housed in a quaint three-storey lane house that Dong Liang is. A great store to explore if you are curious about emerging Chinese fashion designers. I was there for Beijing-based Central Saint Martins-schooled Vega Wang but ended up with a dress by Shanghai designer Ni Hua under her Miss Mean label instead. It was hard to leave the store empty-handed. I think my wallet ached a little.
