I recently did a dumpling demo at the Menlo Park library where I got to meet Jay, one of the banh mi recipe testers and a frequent visitor to this site. He told me how he enjoyed the lists of interesting articles and products that I used to post. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may have seen them in passing. But let’s be real, who has time to keep up with everything? Plus, a 140-character tweet or a long Facebook post isn’t quite the same as aggregating and organizing a list of information that’s interesting and potentially useful to you at a cocktail party or afternoon tea.
So I’m thinking of reviving the lists and calling them “VWK Leftovers.” My dad, Bo Gia (“old daddy” in Vietnamese), also culls the internet for stuff so I’d like to give him a shout out for being a precocious 83-year-old man.
