Hello lovely readers. Apologies for the radio silence over the last few weeks. Baby Z is getting wrigglier by the day (yes did I mention? We had a little Meatball / Char Siew Bao / Xiao Long Bao / Wagyu / insert nickname from friends here in January).
Our other baby, foodie activity hub Edible Experiences is also growing in fits and spurts. Between the 2 we've been kept very happy and utterly sleep deprived!
But this month I somehow managed a surprise little achievement that is very close to my heart: Getting my utterly fabulous 97 year old grandmother Madam Lim Kim Tee and her family recipe for Foochow Ang Chow (fermented red rice wine) featured in New York's Asian American Writer's Workshop's Open City Magazine. Read the article here.
Apparently when my Mum showed the article to Grandma in Singapore, Grandma asked if the article and her photo (above) could be seen other people's computers as well. Mum gave a short explanation of how the internet worked (really wish I was there for that!) and said, yes, anyone with a computer and an internet connection could see it. I'm told the beam on Grandma's face was quite a sight to behold.
I'm beaming as well.
A toast to Grandma!
