I just love the combination of rustic background and candies/jelly cut with such square precision..and very romantic pink hue with sugar dusting.

Now, on a different note, I am delighted to share with all of you that The Cooking Doctor now has monthly column in BBC Good Food Asia! Starting from this year, my healthy eating column is featured in this magazine, whereby I share some tips on healthy eating, good food to be included in the diet, and of course recipes.
The best part, I did all the photo shoots and food styling myself, which I consider as my big personal achievement, considering how terrible my photos were during early days of blogging! Well they are still not perfect but getting better they are..
The January theme is Carrots...
Carrot buckwheat pancakes..
Grilled Black Pepper Salmon with Carrot Couscous Salad...
Carrot and Pistachio Mini Bundt teacakes..
Carrot Ginger Breakfast Smoothie
Please grab your copy of BBC Good Food Asia, which is in market now, for the article as well as recipes.
I take this opportunity to thank all my loyal readers, friends and family for this milestone..I 'm very pleased that at last I am able to consolidate my love for cooking and all thing baking with my medical profession, hopefully the snippets of medical advice and guide to healthy eating is incorporated into our daily lives with of course the occassional decadent indulgence:-)
Happy New Year!
