“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” ― Leonardo da Vinci


Simple beauty





I finished my last exam for my degree ever last friday and in true form, I woke up saturday awfully ill. As soon as I finish exam my body enters classic “post-exam exhaustion”. It is as if all semester it has been in combat with virus’s and flus to fight off any ill health then as soon as the examiner announce “pens down” it relaxes and succumbs to every bug alive.

I suppose I did not help myself leaving a maximum of  thirty minutes between ‘pens down’ and finishing a cocktail, but completing exams calls for celebration.


So, waking up on saturday I felt ill from a hangover but also struggling to talk with laryngitis, a cough, cold and fever I decided the only thing that would cure me would be soup and tea.

Soba Noodles

I decided to make chicken wonton noodle soup. In prepraration I pulled out my soba noodles and was shocked by their pure simplicity. Each noodle was so perfect and delicate, very opposite to how I felt. Their design was my first step to recovery… they also were a delicious addition to my soup. yum
