Although the BRIC Interiors team has recently had to work from home, the on-going virus is not stopping us from working much harder to ensure projects and deadlines are met. Besides work, being at home can be a perfect opportunity to enjoy and realise what matters the most in this time of uncertainty. Recovering from your busy schedule, doing some chores around the house and taking this time to spend with your family and reuniting has never been more important. Get the family involved with activities you can do at home from cleaning the house, playing board games, or even cooking.
Although the media has bombarded us with so much news regarding the virus, take this time to turn the negative into something positive. Here at BRIC Interiors, Design Director Bally Taylor shares her delicious curry recipe for everyone to try at home. Indian curry is a perfect comforting food best served with naan bread or rice, which every household adores. However, her secret recipe for making the best curry is none other than cooking it with your loved ones. Someone can be washing the vegetables, while the others could be cutting the onions, getting the seasonings ready, and gathering the utensils. Eating dinner is much better when knowing that everyone took part in cooking the dish.
