Broken rice

Com TamCơm tấm is a Vietnamese dish made from broken rice grains. “Tấm” is the name of the dish and also the kind of rice we use for it.

However, I have made this dish with wholegrain rice instead of
broken rice grains. It is a very famous and popular breakfast in the South of Vietnam. We eat this rice with baked pork, steamed egg with and the skin of pork. Don’t forget a sprinkling of fish sauce with sugar, lemon and chilli.

It is so tasty and yummy



Winter is over

Winter is gone! I am happy that it has more light, more sunshine and more flowers along the streets.

The left over of the winter is here, on this painting :).

During looking for affordable makeup products, I have found ELF. I asked my husband to buy those (on the pic) for me. I could do it by me self, but I prefer to receive them from his as gilfs :).

Why do I decide to go with E.L.F? You will find my reason after reading some comments below:

Kylar : They aren’t as good quality as MAC or Covergirl or namebrand make-up. But
they are worth the money you pay for them.

Mary: They have great prices and work just as good as Mac, I use their eyeliner and it stays on all day.


alternative addict: It’s a hit or miss with this brand and nothing has ‘holy grail’ status in my opinion, but I think they’re great for staple items.

From the studio line, my favorites are…
brushes, blushes, powders, settting spray, eyeliner
