No one really ever thinks of cooking as the first option for stress relief. If anything, most women could argue it generates stress. But between juggling life as a biomed undergrad, and an average young adult with a rollercoaster called life, cooking has been one of the solid few things from a young age I could turn to and say “I’ve got this”. Especially coming from a South Asian background, I was blessed with an early introduction to the world of never-ending spices.
A lot of young people could argue, “but why bother cooking? I haven’t got the time, or it goes way over my budget.” If that’s the case, you’ve come to the right place to prove that opinion wrong. Cooking can not only save money if done right under budget, but also provide a way healthier life style, and furthermore serve as a type of therapy. Yes you saw that correctly, therapy for the mind, just like colouring or music. Its a fixative creative process, that can ease the mind from stress. So what better way to collaborate best of both worlds with my own cooking and what good food from local eats has to offer? I look forward to sharing my culinary experiences, and hopefully provide a further meaning from all of it; that food isn’t just for the tummy, but for the soul as well
