Let me check. The last post in my blog was in May and it's now October. OMG! i've officially neglected my blog for 5months... See how workaholic i can get? (kidding) Anyhoo, i got reminded of my blog recently and i thought i should be diligently updating SS again:)

Cream cornet bread from a mobile bread van

Oh well, I haven't been baking/cooking recently:) just a trip or 2 for the past few months. So i thought...i'll dedicate this late late post to my new found good good friends LL and Lynn.. they are my colleagues but are incontestably fun/crazy girls to be with:)

*pause* while i'm hunt-and-pecking.. a cake is being delivered for my dad's birthday. ;) how sweet of them.. Just in time for my post:) PHOTOS!

Fried rice in (lotus leaves?)

Pancake.. Huey style

And so.. back to my post.. I've just visited HCM, Vietnam recently and am still fresh from the experience. As usual, i'll blog about the food we had there. mMMm... I'm fine with what i had in HCM(i'm not sucha food-picker afterall) but i'm quite sure that's not the case for everyone. For instance, they like to use a kind of spice/herb -- i'm not sure.. in their dishes. and this spice/herb has this distinct taste that doesn't appeal to all diners.

My No.1 favourite there would be the french bread/baguette. Since vietnam has been under the french colonial in their history, vietnamese sure adore this (crispy on the outside and fluffy in the inside) grain product. YOU can find it everywhere, anytime of the day can!

their noodle dishes (not pho)

And we had their springrolls in rice paper:) it has "VIETNAM" written all over it! It's a must-try! Not that it's nice(it's fine).. it's like their trademark! just like you have to have hainanese chicken rice when you're in S'pore. And of cos WE had lotsa other foods.. foods we don't normally have.

Portugese Egg tart in KFC!

And i had freshly cooked coconut candy! It's super nice can! I'm really tempted to microwave or steam the candies i've bought.. wonder how it'll turn out to be...........

All in all , i really enjoyed my trip and am looking forward to the next one! oooohhhh~ but for now.. back to work.

Big Big POW!
