Mushroom Soy Butter Pasta
Sarah: For the annual Boxing Day celebration with my friends, we’re going to have to figure out how to eat the same food while connecting online over video call. It won’t be the same, but the fact that we want to do this every year, regardless of challenges, means so much to me.
Anton: This year, with the pandemic still on the rise, many people are questioning whether to celebrate Christmas the way we are accustomed to, or just skip it altogether for the safety of everybody. Just the other day, I heard from the news that the government is getting ready for an influx of new patients this month as there are still quite a lot of people who chose not to let COVID 19 halt their Christmas traditions. Since I understand the need and longing to be reunited, I'd like to just remind our fellow foodies that there are local guidelines and safety measures in place to make our gatherings safer. Other than the usual wearing of mask and hand sanitation, it is important that we keep ourselves informed of the community protocols especially in travelling to help mitigate risks. I, on the other hand, am content with just celebrating Christmas this year virtually along with the family.
Charlotte: I will be spending Christmas with two of my brothers who reside in Singapore, and we’ve decided to cook a dish each! I have been tasked to make dessert this year. I haven’t made plans yet, so I’m open to suggestions! It also looks like we’ll be having multiple video calls with other family members, and sending tons of pictures of what's on our plates! Our locations cover South America, South East Asia and Australia, so the selection will be interesting!
