{ ffwd } bowls of soup


It’s been a while since I’ve participated in FFwD. Life and new projects have been keeping me busy these past couple of months. I feel slightly guilty about this. I’ve been wanting to post something for quite some time now but lately the scheduled recipes require that I trek to specialty stores downtown.

But after weeks of basically eating out almost every night, I’m starting to worry about the health damage of eating dishes laden with MSG. It’s no secret that MSG is very widely used in Singapore.
