She turned on a gentle fire for the wok, the stew simmered for a few minutes. Then, she gracefully stirred the contents in the wok, ladled into a bowl and artfully scattered garnish on top of the dish. She was a thoughtful host, who warmly welcomed me into her home and served me a gratifying home-cooked lunch that afternoon.
Who is she? She was my first obliging ‘model’ for a new series that I am developing for this blog. A series of portraits that will take a peek into the roots of some Singapore moms, moms who will share their stories of culture and heritage in their lives.
She isn’t just any Singapore Mom. She is a mom who is a part of this community that I have grown to love and appreciate; she is a Singapore Mom Blogger.
Can you guess who she is? A clue, she has Peranakan roots. Do look out for first post next week on Portraits of a Singapore Mom Blogger, and you will get to see who she is!
