Good on her! I personally veer to the side of modesty (aka I don’t do nudes), but why shame those who have no qualms about baring their body? They have the confidence—let them shine. To borrow her words: she’s a mom, a wife, an entrepreneur. She is certainly allowed to be sexy. And you know what? So do we! I’d never thought I’d say this but—go Kim Kardashian West!
I used to work in hospitality PR, so I’ve had my share of memorable meals. However, the most unforgettable one was the first time I tried Cha Ca La Vong (also known as Cha Ca Hanoi)-a Vietnamese fish that’s cooked table side. As the fish sizzles in front of you, it is soaked in the heady flavors of turmeric and dill and all kinds of simple, but incredibly special flavors. When the fish is done, it is served on top of silky rice noodles, with peanuts and fish sauce mixed in. I first tried this when I was in Hanoi—it was the lone dish served in the eponymous hole-in-the-wall restaurant. The first bite was heaven: the fresh taste of the fish, punctuated by the spices, with the contrasting textures of the rice noodles and the peanuts. Yes, it was street food—and I gleefully remember washing it down with a swig of the local beer. But wow—this experience far surpassed many fine dining meals I’ve had!
Response to Where’s The Best Family-Friendly Vacation Spot?:
I was 17, and we took a trip up and down the East Coast, from New York, DC and Maryland all the way down to Florida. Our suitcases were filled with everything from shorts to cold weather gear to make up for the differences in temperature (it was spring in the US, and summer vacation in the Philippines, where we lived). We explored everything, from the Empire State Building to Disneyworld, from the Smithsonian to Kennedy Space Center. While it was a lovely, memorable trip, what made it particularly poignant was that my parents split up about a year after that. It was the last trip we took as a family, and the last good trip with my childhood innocence intact.
