  1. It’s mouth watering, Katya! You’re talented..

    I wish we could meet one day and we share food. I’ll cook you Indonesian food and you could cook me Brazilian food. 🙂

    Seriously. There’s another teacher here from Brazil and by the end of the module we normally share food. It’s great when we could have Indonesian, Brazilian, Korean, Chinese, Saudis, and Japanese food all in one table.. It’s always a happy day for all of us.. 🙂

    Kind regards,

    Subhan Zein
