Squid and Mung Bean Vermicelli Salad
Do you know why I wouldn't return to my 20s even if it should be possible to do so? Because I wouldn't have met as many interesting people, people who themselves have lived through a number of decades, as I had through my 20s and 30s.
We all know that it wouldn't be possible to experience everything oneself. Though there is nothing to stop us from doing so through the people we've met.
Margi came the other day from Bologna. It has been a few weeks since we last saw each other and with me leaving Modena soon, who knows when the next time will be. She came loaded with groceries - because she had decided to cook me a Thai meal.

I will not tell you her life story in my blog, but suffice to say that she has gone places, met people and enjoyed many interesting experiences. And one of those experiences included working with more than 20 famous Thai Chefs,
stealing learning their recipes and working techniques in the process. Do you wish you were in my shoes now?

Margi should share/capitalise on her knowledge - and I hope that she will in the near future. You never know if you would soon hear about a petite Maggie Cheung-lookalike Asian girl offering Thai Cooking classes in Bologna. If you do, please do not hesitate to sign up for them. I promise that you will not regret it.
In the meantime, thank you, Margi, for the delicious lunch!
