Sue's kitchen

I did my first Padthai in New Zealand.

I love Pad Thai , that was what Sue told me. Sue was my host in Raglan where it was a scene in the movie “Endless summer”, a surfer paradise. But I didn’t have any plan to go on the surfboard at that time. I just need somewhere near Auckland to escape the crazy Rugby World Cup 2011 event that caused full booked accommodations in New Zealand’s capital city.

The reason Sue accepted me to be her helper was that she was injured by playing a netball. She wanted someone to help her doing housework , especially cooking. Well I would more than happy to be a cook in the house of Sue , a nurse who have to take care herself during her injury.

I have done some stir fried and curry dishes many times , that was as easy as pie. But for the menu that my host loves it. I have not done it before. And it is the hardest one due to many ingredients included in this menu.

Like old saying , there has to be a first step in every steps. So as my first Pad Thai , it just I had not expected that I would make it a first time in New Zealand.

Fortunately I had a good consultant , Sister Mam. Sue knew her shop Thai Market in Halmilton , the closed by city. I went to her shop to buy most of ingredients with a free advice of cooking Pad Thai.

Unfortunately I filmed most of the time I cook Padthai. It was for my TV.project that was failed. I even have not got a picture of my first Padthai as I was so busy making Padthai and talking with camera , I did all by myself!

Anyway I plan to show you the VDO of how to make it with subtitle. SEE VDO (Soon)

And I will make all of my dish with my cooking 101 of everything. Sorry that I have not shown you the detail right now as I make this website mostly by my own at the moment. It needs some time and some assistant to help me make it more perfect. So stay tune with our website! Please….. ^__^
