Sigh… traffic!

Hint: to avoid the traffic, either take the shortcut (if you also like to explore the city :D) or not to get on the road during rush hour (8-9am in the morning & 5.30-6.30pm in the evening)

18:11 – Reach home & it’s time for dinner!!

My meal at home always has a lot of veggies. So don’t ask me why I am so skinny 😀

Now, let me show you how to wrap a spring roll

Basically, just put any food you like on top of the wet rice paper, wrap it & dip into sweet & sour source -> Enjoy!!
