I enjoy cooking for my family, especially Asian dishes which usually have lots of different ingredients and layers of flavours. And because in most Asian cultures, people share multiple small dishes in a meal, I find it fun choosing the dish combinations for each day. Every now and then I love to challenge myself by doing something I have never done before, for example travelling to a new country, attending a radio interview, or adrenaline activities like bungy jumping, swimming down a white-waterfall, or putting a snake around my neck. The feeling of achieving something new in life is just amazing! I also enjoy entertaining and talking to my two cats. I feel like they do understand me but whether they respond or not is a different story. I still find their silence very healing though.
