Here’s my mini interview with Jessica Wong and some photos of her family and the Korean dishes that she made. I met her a few months ago at my Singapore meetup during my Gapshida trip. She had been one of my silent readers before I met her. Now she is featured on my website! I am very surprised to see all these photos of Korean food. She makes Korean bulgogi, kimchi, soup, and side dishes just like a Korean housewife.
Check out the cute smiles in the photo of her 2 sons taken on the stairs. Aren’t they adorable? When they grow up, they’ll remember their mom’s food and will say, “Our mom’s food is the best!” : )
Jessica and her son Randall at my Singapore meetup. I took this photo!
