Dear Diary,

I've got a confession to make. The first time I tried tom yum gung I wasn't too crazy about the flavors. For me it was too much going on. It's sour. It's spicy and just a little bit sweet.

Then the more I ate tom yum gung, the more I liked it. There's just something about those flavor combinations that make you want more.

Today, the more sour it is, the more spicy it is the better.
