Hello, welcome to Piggy’s Cooking Journal!
My name is Grace but I prefer to call myself Piggy in this blog. Why Piggy? Well, first of all, my surname is Choo and it has the same pronunciation (with different meaning though) as ‘pig’ in Mandarin. I also like to collect figurines and souvenirs of pig. So hence the name Piggy!
This blog was started in 2005, exactly one year after I got married and move into a new house (and a new kitchen!) with my hubby. I’ve been baking since I was a teenager but cooking was something new to me then. So I tried my hand at cooking and at the same time, documenting what I’ve done in this blog.
It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that my biggest passion is eating. I love any food in general and more importantly, I live to eat. My mother is a great cook and I’m lucky to grow up with her yummy home cooked food. I’m also extremely glad to have a mother-in-law who can cook very well too.
Because of my hubby’s job assignment, we left Singapore and stayed in Saudi Arabia from July 2008 to July 2009. He's then being posted to Taiwan and we are now staying in Taipei with our little doggy. Other than cooking, I also like sewing, crocheting, web surfing and of course, photography.
Most of the recipes in this blog are adapted from cookbooks. If you want to give any recipe a try, all you need to do is to click on “Recipes” tab near the header.
