It had been a month since we left Singapore, our home for almost 16 years. Recently, I’ve been overly active in social media to avoid getting homesick and to make myself busy exploring new recipes. That should make me occupied. 

A few days ago, I cooked (or rather prepared since there was really nothing to cook) Smoked Salmon Cranberries Salad and I posted a photo of it right after dinner in my Instagram. Of course, I shared it in my Facebook page as well. My friend Gazzel asked for the recipe. Told her I’d post it soon in my blog so she’d have a reason to visit it. I miss my friends in Singapore. Gazzel had been my Tuesday fitness/breakfast/tea buddy almost consistently for about a year. So, Gazzel this is for you…
