What are the easy and tasty dishes that you would recommend to students to cook?
Pasta and steak! For pasta, do not overcook the pasta! Boil the noodles 2 minutes lesser than the stated time in the packaging and that would be sufficient. This is due to a factor known as “Carry-over Cooking". For cooking steak, season your steak well, with salt and pepper. Don’t be shy with your seasoning! And most importantly, do not touch the steak too much. Just leave it on the pan while searing one side, and flip only once.
What are some interesting hobbies you do during your free time?
Cooking definitely! I love whipping up dishes and desserts, and enjoying them at the comfort of my own home. Apart from that, I also play the violin.
Another interesting hobby I enjoy is Scuba Diving. I love the feeling of being in the ocean alongside other beautiful and interesting marine animals.
What do you love most about Singapore?
Culture! Apart from the Hawker Food Culture in Singapore which I love (there is a lot of nice street food!), I also love how you can always see people of different generation gathered at Hawker Centre in Singapore. You see old folks having kopi-chat there, while families with young kids can also be seen having their meals there at the same time. This is unlike in Japan or even European countries, where the older they get, they tend to become more isolated. The general public here, gets to mingle with people of different generation, and I think that is good.”
