Phoenix The Chef

Phoenix loves cooking shows, and watching people cook.  When we go places, she always takes an interest in what the professional chefs are doing.  Sometimes, the chefs are really nice and they invite her into the kitchen, and give her a little job to do.  Here we see her playing with some dough and pretending to make dumplings.

Phoenix loves cooking!

Please note that this is an experimental posting using Google Photos, since the future of Flickr is uncertain.  What is certain is that if I want to keep all the content on this blog, I’m going to have to pay Smugmug for hosting the photos, and there are something like 13,000 photos on this blog.

I’ve decided that I’m going to delete much of the older content and keep more recent content, as this blog is really no longer relevant as a travel blog, that is unless you want to see what Asia looked like 15 years ago, lol.  Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

  1. If you’re back in Taiwan, I was wondering what you thought about the current pollution levels in and around Taipei. Would you be comfortable taking babies out shopping and sightseeing now and during the upcoming Lunar New Year?

    1. hi Nate. I don’t live in Taipei, but lately the air quality has been bad all over Taiwan. We take our daughter out and do whatever because we don’t really have much choice. But on bad days she wears a mask, and that’s about all you can do besides limiting your outdoor activities. Fortunately the air inside most malls is good and if you have a car parked in an underground garage you can avoid some of it. I recommend installing an air quality app (and I highly recommend the Taiwan weather app too) so it will alert you to high pollution days/area. Take care Nate.

  2. That’s adorable. I hope you’ll keep a backup of your old blog – knowing what Asia looked like 15 years ago is not travel information, but it’s still interesting, I think.
