Getting busy in the kitchen!

Tomomi: 今回の旅で、野菜をオーブンで焼くという事を学んだ。野菜自体の旨味がギュッと凝縮されて、とても美味しい。素材の味が、味付けして煮込んだり焼いたりするより、際立つように感じる。自分でもやってみたいけど、私のキッチンにオーブンなし。悲し。

Through all the cooking experience in these few days, I have learned that oven-baked vegetables tastes really good. I think the taste of each vegetables come out stronger than if it were to be fried or boiled. I want to do it again in Singapore but my kitchen doesn't have oven. Zannen!

Oven-baked veggies!
Yay for oven-baked vegetables!

Angela: Tonight we cooked dinner for five. Tomomi's husband Kohei took the bus from London to Brussels to visit and catch our presentation tomorrow. As a graduate student studying in London and separated from his dancer wife working in Singapore (I almost wanted to apologize for the anguish Arts Fission has caused; that would be a most Japanese thing to do isn't it), his diet at the university must have been sparten. Therefore he appreciated our home-cooked meal a lot. Comfort food indeed particularly with a good bottle of Champagne and cherry-pie to end the convivial evening.

Good ol' cherry pie

Edwin: Before the end of November, we took the opportunity to celebrate an early Christmas and the reunion of husband and wife, Kohei and Tomomi. Kohei-san travelled to Eupen to spend 3 days with his wife who is working with us in Singapore while he studies for his Masters in London. It is extremely admirable yet painful to witness, and I don't know how they do it, because I can't imagine going by another day without being by my wife and kids.

I'm coming home soon darling.

Mimie: ตั้งแต่หาน้ำปลาเจอในซูเปอร์มาร์เก็ต พริกน้ำปลาก็กลายเป็นของอร่อยที่สุดบนโต๊ะ คนไมยหลายคนเวลาไปเที่ยวถึงต้องพกน้ำปลาขวดเล็กๆ ไปด้วย วัฒนธรรมมันอยู่ในตัวคนจริงๆ โตมากับอะไรก็ยากมี่จะสลัดมันพ้น แต่จะสลัดเพื่ออะไรล่ะ วัฒนธรรมนี่แหละที่ทำให้ เราจำ/ด้ว่าเราคือคนและมาจากไหน

Since we bought fish sauce from the supermarket, chili fish sauce became the most important thing on the ding table (at least for me). Culture is in people. We cannot run away from it. And we do not need to run away cause culture is the thing that helps define us and remind us who we are and where we are from.

Thai sauce with pizza!
