Christmas is nearing so fast that I'm going gaga over all the grocery and gift shopping I still need to do. Add crazy office work and I'm in a frenzy.
But what I really want to do is anything but. I want to stay home, watch DVDs, eat, sleep, read, write, sketch, go out, loiter, shoot and whatever I can think of.
I'm on vacation mode when I actually don't have any. How tragic.
In times like this, I don't need a gum. I need comfort. And one of the top comfort foods I can think of is Pho Hoa's Canh Chua Tom--hot and sour noodle soup with prawns and pineapples.
This is one of the best cure-all dishes, if you ask me. It takes away the blues, flu and colds. It's even a great hangover cure. The hotness and sourness melt all that is evil inside you. Every sip and slurp drives the bad away.
Take it from C. He's crazy about this noodle soup. He would probably eat it everyday if he could.
So if you're on a holiday frenzy, lacking rest, under the weather or recovering from an all-nighter this holiday season, or have the holiday blues, get a bowl at Pho Hoa. You'll come out feeling 10 years younger and 10 times happier!
