Last year I was asked to contribute to a new transcending magazine, Laranja. I submitted this short piece in September ’16, and this week was sent the finished product. This interdisciplinary, multilingual gem of a magazine is really a must read (link to follow), but for now you can enjoy my piece.
Growing up Pudim de leite moça (as we called it then, named after the brand of condensed milk) was one of my favorite desserts and now I make it quite often myself. This dessert can be found at almost every Angolan party/special occasion.
You can find many different variations througout the Lusophone countries, South-America and the Caribbean. It is also quite similar to flan.
My June trip, well end of June, was to Malta. Never been, Didn’t really know what to expect, so it was that more exciting.
Getting from the airport to your hotel/apartment usually sets the tone for how your holiday will start. And I have to say that this time around the transport was extremely well organized. I booked my transport the day before from Holiday Taxis, and the shuttle transfer to my accommodation was there, everything was confirmed, and even though my flight was delayed, it went smoothly after that. For less than £7,- I got a door to door return. Perfect right?
