As I begin to prepare to leave the Malaysian coast, it is emotionally heavy.
I began my blogging journey here. The local cuisine has definitely inspired me. It has contributed to the countless number of memories I cherish and carry along. The fresh greens and the chatty Chinese greengrocer will be the foremost on my food inspiration list. Aided by friends, who took time out to help me choose and sample the flavours around and understood the foodie in me, Malaysia has been the nurturing grounds for my early development in the blogging field. Naturally blessed and well connected with neighbouring Asian countries, Malaysia also offered us the best of travels so far.
Here is one of the dishes I learned to make from my children’s school canteen. This Asian tomato soup recipe was perhaps the only one they had initially on the vegetarian menu. Thanks to great friends they did not rely on the canteen even when we had to be in the hospital for few days. yet my kids did enjoy the company of their BFF as they slurped through the soup.
As we pack up, empty the pantry and prepare to move, my children requested for this again.. I could sense they miss friends and school and this will be something I could do for them.
This is a very easy recipe and makes the tomato soup a filling one with an Asian twist. With the ginger, garlic and soy to create an Asian twist, it is a bowlful of love. The slurpy soup and the filling rice noodles are a perfect warmth to hold our hearts together.
Yes, no doubt, we do have a heavy heart. what we hold on to is that friends are for life. A new adventure beckons… Stay along as we are on our way to explore new lands and imbibe new learnings.
Till we see you again.. Terima Kasih Malaysia.
