At home, I enjoyed cooking everything that I like, I like experimenting recipes. I like collecting recipes and I try to cook it for dinner and lunch on the weekend especially when it comes during the Hari Raya Feast!

Reading is one of my hobbies and interest too, when I was a student I described myself as book-worm since I really love reading anything that caught my interest, even exciting cooking and lifestyle magazines, especially Home Deco and Wallpaper!
