Sara is the one of oldest food bloggers I have ever known in Singapore and love the recipes she writes on her food blog. She is a SAHM of two wonderful boys and spends her spare time in volunteering, writing and running her shopping venture – MyFashion Collections. I was coaxing her to write for RainbowDiaries for loonnggg time. Finally, Madame has obliged! 😀

Lets see if I can make her write more for RainbowDiaries 😛
