One hot humid day in Kuala Lumpur, I decided to leave my job. Some months later, I was in London.
I came to London – a metropolitan city that is full of excitements and very different from Malaysia – culture, lifestyle and weather wise. I was like an impatient kid, couldn’t wait to explore and experience every second! Living far apart from my family means I missed home cooked food. I was glad that I brought along my passion in food.
I made some great friends, Azma, Kristin, Karen….
I met Arnaud, my now husband. My life with a Frenchman began and we started on a journey getting to know a new country, culture, and cuisine. We travelled the world. We both have a common interest in food – he is very much into sweet and I am into savoury. That makes us a great couple!
Then, I started this blog to document recipes and travel. My passion in food grew deeper, the life long learning process has also brought me into the amazing digital world of food and travel photography. A few years later, I wrote my first cookbook – Lemongrass and Ginger: Vibrant Asian Recipes.
We hosted dinners, had wonderful evenings that turned into early mornings. Over the years, we have had enjoyed living near to the Thames river, with an amazing view of Canary Wharf, in a pleasant and tranquil part of London, not far from the beautiful and famous Tower Bridge and just a stone’s throw away from London’s business hub.
All these happened in a decade.
A fantastic opportunity came along and after quick but careful consideration, we decided to go ahead….and we are moving to Hong Kong!
We travelled together to Hong Kong more than 3 years ago. We were there as tourists just for a short few days before travelling to Japan. I am excited, yet feeling a bit anxious as things will be different and it also means to learn a new city from scratch. But, even before I realise, my curiosity will conquer my anxiousness within seconds!
There is no doubt that I will still continue blogging. In fact, I envisage a lot of interesting things that I will be sharing on my blog. I have no doubt that the food scene in Hong Kong will be awesome! So, less worry for this foodie who lives to eat!
I am very excited and can’t wait to share with you guys my life and food journey in Hong Kong!
Before I leave the land of Union Jack, I want share a recipe with you guys. It is definitely the dish for this season – Beer, Beef and Mushroom Pie. This hearty dish is a great representation of the United Kingdom. Apart from Sausage & Mash and Fish & Chips, I guess this is one of my favourites that never fails to put a smile on my face!
Well, I will miss this dish but one thing I know, no matter where I am, if I crave for it, I can easily make it at home. 😉
