Move to HK 3 years ago and become a full-time homemaker. Am a person who live to eat! Thus my passion to cook for my friends and family. Every meal is an adventure for me as it’s like a science experience – you may not know what your end result will be like until the finish. But the best moment when all is done and you see the smile on everyone’s face and the thumbs up for what I have accomplished.
