Hello, my name’s Tien.
I was born and raised in Malaysia, the land of good food and hot sunny weather. I am an engineer by training but I realise now that I would fare much better with something less technical because I think I am not analytical enough.
I am currently residing in New Zealand as an international student.
I love food, music, movies and TV shows. I have a weakness for cakes and ice creams, cheese, Michael Bublé, and Hollywood productions.
I am an animal lover. I love love love dogs. Alfie is my family dog back in Malaysia and I miss him to bits. Cats, rabbits, hamsters, birds, you name it, I would cuddle it. However, I cannot stand geckos (lizards) and frogs….zero tolerance! Otherwise, I love animals.
I love cooking and baking. I enjoy trying and sharing recipes (that work…) and cooking for friends. I hate the washing and cleaning that follows though…
Recently I have grown to like gardening. Harvesting edible greens and strawberries from my very own little patch is indeed very delightful!
Occasionally, I enjoy writing too. I hope blogging will help me nourish this passion into something I would be proud of…someday. You see, I have always fancied the idea of being a writer, having my own column and all. Think: Carrie Bradshaw. Okay, that’s a little far-fetched….
Well, for now, I can blog!
