Trip Home - FOOD (pic heavy)



first meal after I arrived home, my all time fav: cold rice noodle with eel stew




I was really surprised to see some "Dutchie" stuff at the supermarket in Kunming



introducing: (drum-rolls) the bread machine of the century!!! 

not only can it make sweet and savory bread, sponge cake, plain dough, and all the other usual stuff, -

it can also make RICE CAKE!!! my second FAV!!!

self made rice cake with peanut butter + chili wet tofu sauce - super yummy combo!
100 times better than peanut butter + sambal on the bread.

self made walnut butter bread + Nutella

Gouda cheese bread + pesto

fresh from Thailand!! Tamarind!!


fresh from XiShuangBanNa!!! barbequed fish and chicken


fresh from the Netherlands!! my fav drink: beerenberger, AKA the Dutch Gin
surprisingly it goes really great with Chinese food!


Fancy "instant" coffee, fresh beans, delicious, quick and easy, most importantly, you can make the "instant" coffee the old fashioned way


noodle with chilli sauce and tofu flower
