I have a new baby!

Whoa! I shouldn't say such things - I almost gave MYSELF a mini panic attack. What I mean is, I've created a new site called Wai Sek that I wanted to introduce to you. Wai sek is a little Cantonese phrase that makes me laugh (it's not truly funny - but I think it's funny). My mom has this cabinet that is always stocked with good snacks. The first order of business when anyone in my family goes to her house is to go stand in front of the open cabinet, just scanning around for something to eat. I thought it was an appropriate title for a site that I hope will be a resource for everything that has to do with Asian food. There will be recipes, an insider's guide to eating out at specialty restaurants, a photo gallery of cool Asian food related sights, a Q&A section about anything related to Asian food, and some garden photos (of course). I'd be thrilled if you could take a look, possibly share with friends who might be interested, and if appropriate, CONTRIBUTE to the site.

And just so you know I'm not just busy nursing my new baby - you'll see my little seedling operation up above. I thought I'd widen the angle so you can see my pitiful but incredibly special, but sparsely-flowered Christmas cactus that I've posted about before, the basket on the right filled with my Keurig k-cups (favorite invention of all time), and behind all the clutter, Shockti-Taka's (our pet sugar glider) cage.

Also, spring blooms and other signs of life...

In the vegetable gardens, garlic and strawberries greening up with life and strength, and a few spears of asparagus ready for picking (more for garnishing than eating at this point!).

COMING SOON - on April 30th, we will begin the Garden to Table Challenge! Read here about the Winter Edition. Where will you find inspiration this season???


  1. Congratulations on your new baby; Wai Sek. This is a surprise considering your size. I have a friend whose blog's name is F.A.T. It stands for Food Art Travel.

  2. I like your new blog :-D You have such great ideas. I am sure many will find your new blog useful.

    As for your garden, I hope those seedlings will grow well and nice from now onwards. Btw, your blue pot is really outstanding.

    Have a great Wednesday!

  3. My grandfather targeted each of us with different snacks and had a similar cabinet - my snack was a "Zero" candy bar (because I was allergic to chocolate back then. If I ever run across one of them, I immediately think of him.

    I'll check out your new blog!

  4. Now I know what you were referring to when you took a break last year!
    I will check it out. I love foodie sites.

  5. Yay Wendy..beautiful post..and congrats on your new baby..hooray! Shine on!!
    Sounds awesome!

  6. Well, Wendy...that little break really recharged your batteries! I look forward to exploring your new venture.

  7. Lots blooming your way, Wendy. Happy new endeavor and happy spring :)

  8. Congrats on the new site. My mom too has a goody cabinet! Growing up, it was way on the top shelf, so we little ones couldn't reach and eat everything in sight. Haha. Our garlic and strawberries are doing great also. And I spied a few small asparagus spears already. Fun.

  9. What a great idea. Can't wait to check out your new site. So you take a break...and you come back and add a blog. Crazy girl.

    Oh...on the grilled romaine salad, just leave off the parm. It will still be delish (I'd never heard the term lactard before...hahahaha)

  10. We do the same thing at my Grandma's house--come in, say hello, go to snack cupboard.

    Congratulations on your new site!


My awesome gardening friends...thanks for leaving a comment! I don't typically repond here, but I love knowing who you are so I can visit your blog as well.

btw - if you're trying to show me nude Miley Cyrus photos, sell me nikes or viagra or antibiotics, or encourage my lovely garden readers to visit your site on solar panel construction, or seo-whatevers, sorry, but I'm not publishing your comment. If you want to moderate my blog - well, I can't keep you too busy, and the pay would be horrible. And lastly, no. I'm not interested in Club Penguin cheat codes. Thanks anyway.
