Chicken noodles from landlord 

Because landlords are adding 2 more floors to increase rooms to rent,
it's been quite noisy for last 6 weeks.

They must have thought they had to do something to avoid tenants complaining
about construction noise.
The landlords had cooked noodles for tenants on Sunday last three to four weeks.

This is soy source based chicken noodles (Mi Ga).
It was a bit greasy as lunch but quite tasty.

Com Tam 

My landlords run small restaurant called Com Tam.

Highlands Coffee at Somerset Chancellor Court 

Price of iced coffee went up from 26000 vnd to 33000 vnd !
It was more than 25% up.

Well, here is Vietnam, hahaha.

Goat breast meat bagrbeque.

My homemade yogurt 
I made yogurt using yogurt maker brought from Japan.
I originally wanted to use this to make Nattou that is fermented soy beans.

I did not know making yogurt was this easy!
You can just mix milk and yogurt, then keep temperature 40 degree for 6 to 12hours.

I hope this will help my eczema somewhat.
But taking too much dairy product is not good for my eczema either.

Hột vịt lộn 
Hột vịt lộn is called "Trứng vịt lộn" at Northern Vietnam.
Vit means duc. Trung means egg.
They called "balut" in Phillipines.
Chinese called them "máodàn" or "sǐtāidàn".

I would not show how to eat it but you can search on the net.

Almost 90% of Vietnamese (or I heard Filipino) like this.
They consider Hột vịt lộn contains high protain and etcetra.
There are many weired dishes in Asia orworld wide. These are not common and most of them are not deliscious.

Hoever, Hột vịt lộn is very common and you can often see those at street stands in Vietnam.
I wanted to get feeeling why they like Hột vịt lộn.
I have eaten them dozen of times and I think I am getting used to eat them.
