{Good NEWS} My work in print!

Edamame with sichuan salt mix

Edamame with sichuan salt mix – my contribution to Bep Gia Dinh 

Some good news ;), both came from Vietnam! First off, I am featured in Bếp Gia Đình (Family Kitchen) magazine, Chinese New Year edition, in their featured bloggers’ section. I was a bit scared to show my face in a national magazine, but everything went well and I am happy.

The second news is even more thrilling for me personally. I have started up a monthly food column with Tạp chí Đẹp (a top fashion/women magazine) in Vietnam. The editor (a very cool personality I must add), sent me the soft copy of their New Year edition just a few days back and I was speechless. The design was so pretty, and I could not believe my Vietnamese writing skills were still good enough. *happy* I guess this is my welcome to the world of constant deadline chasing!

Left: the 1st page of my 4 pages article for Đẹp. Right: My edame photo is on the top right corner of Bếp Gia Đình cover! 

Apparently my mom spent the weekend hunting down these two mags (she cannot wait for the complimentary issues to be sent over, ha!). I hope to see the hard copies soon enough when I visit Hanoi in two weeks time.

While this is not the first time I do some freelancing work, these oppurtunities are amazing. I’m thankful for the opportunities… And a big thank to YOU, my fellow food bloggers and readers, who have continued to inspire and encourage me!
