Super Chef

My sister

Whenever I come down to Saigon, I always enjoy eating whatever my sister, Hang, cooks. She cooks very well and she knows what I love. While I was there recently, she spoilt me. So many times, Hang made a quick visit to the market near her home, and thirty minutes later I'd have one of my favourites in front of me. Some of her best dishes are sweet and sour broth with Bong Lau fish, stir fried prawns with pork, steamed mixed vegetables and some eggplants. Sometimes she makes really good beef steak to eat with rice instead of French fries and salad.

Hang's dish- stir fried prawn and pork

She varies what she cooks very often, which impresses a lot because I can eat something delicious and different almost daily. My sister and I both love tennis and we play every night whenever I come down to Saigon. I join her club to play doubles which gives me a good chance to practice my doubles skills. Usually I only play singles in Hanoi.

Spending time with Hang was good fun as always. I love Ho Chi Minh City and I'm thinking about moving down here to live at the end of this year. Let’s see.
