Cantonese Steam Chicken

As a working lady, cooking dinner is always a challenge. By the time I reach home, I already don't have the luxury to slowly prepare my dinner, else, it'll be supper instead. I always look for fast meals so that I can get my dinner done in shortest time that I can, and make my kitchen least dirty / oily. I found this recipe few months ago and it's so easy, hassle-free and most importantly - fast!

The recipe is simple:
1. Chicken - I get the chicken thigh from Giant / Tesco and get them to cut into half for me. And I remove all the skin when I am home. Put them on a plate.
2. In a bowl - mix a tbsp oyster sauce, 1/2 tbsp of soy sauce, 1/2 tsp sesame oil, 1 tbsp chinese shaoxing wine, 1 tsp of sugar, 1 tbsp of cornstarch. You can put some salt too if you want it to be saltier.
3. Pour the mixture over the chicken.
4. Soaked & slice some mushroom (optional), dry sherry, ginger, garlic and spread over the chicken.
5. Put them into a pot and steam for 15-20 minutes. DONE!



Today I cooked 3 dishes for dinner. We normally eat 2 dishes on weekday but today I was in good mood so I made another omelette. But the main point is, we do eat for dinner... but I am not sure why everyone says we are thin / lost a lot of weight - especially to EG. Everybody was telling him that he has lost weight AFTER the wedding. Hmm... I wonder what does THAT mean... =.=. Anyway, this is the proof that I do feed him OK?! :P

Our dinner

Too bad, the boss said today's dinner was so-so only and it was too much!! So, again, it's not my fault that he can't eat much and can't put on weight... alright? :D

For DoDo

I wrote a long long letter for my dear sis before she left for UK, but someone said it sounded like a creepy suicidal note, so I repost.

Dodo, Remember:
1. Drink a lot of water in the flight to prevent dehydration, and walk a bit on the flight to prevent water retention
2. Don't miss home so much... (not easy for someone who has the record of flying back Sarawak from KL 7 times a year)... Enjoy yourself there!!!!
3. Watch your food - control the cheese, milk, bread, dairy products (it's hazardous for Teng's girls!!!!!)
4. Learn to cook....
5. Travel around and post pics in Facebook.....
6. Buy souvenirs for me (like what i did everytime i travel ok?? ok??).... <-- this is very important....
7. Stay prayerful, FIND & GO church. :P
8. I don't mind LV, Gucci or Coach that you mentioned last night though I am not exactly a bag person....
9. Go online in MSN more often.
10. Send your pics so that I can tell if you should go on diet... :P

Most useful present for you:
Joshua 1:9 - Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go

Will miss you dearly, and take care of yourself for the next 365 days! See you next year! And come stay my new place! =)

PS: Hopefully you're a yee yee when you're back. *wink*

The Hungry Hog

Note: This post is non-Halal...

During my visit to KL during Raya Holiday last year, we stayed at our good friend's aka EG's best man aka our wedding dinner emcee's place in Subang. And as usual, we'll meet up with the rest of the gang for some makan and catch up session.

We were running out of ideas on where to eat, and Yeng (the host) suggested to cook for us. YIPPIE!!.. I remembered there were homemade sausages, pastas, and ROASTED PORK. It has already been >8 mths since I ate the homemade roasted pork but I still miss it dearly!... It's crunchy and juicy, and unlike those out there (full of fats), this is definitely healthier - I saw the cook made it in front of me..! Should have copied down the recipe.... argh!!

Yummy yummy siu yuk...

And now, lucky for those who're in KL or Klang Valley!! Now the great cook has started his weekend business to serve siu yuk!! Drop by The Hungry Hog for more details. You should really try this, and I am sure you'll just love it!! =)

And if you think that the cook will be like "zu yuk weng", then you're wrong! Don't believe me? Order it and go collect from the leng-cai cook and see it with your own eyes!! =). Am sure you won't regret - both of the pork, and the cook! :D


PS: How I wish he could courier it to Penang too....!!

I stumbled into this blog today and found out this article is so right.

I love the last part:
“Forgiveness is above all a personal choice, a decision of the heart to go against the natural instinct to pay back evil with evil. Forgiveness may seem like weakness, but it demands great spiritual strength and moral courage, both in granting it and in accepting it.” ~Pope John Paul II

It doesn't only apply in marriage life, but it also applies in our daily life to everyone around us...

Best way of spending money

I realised, the best way to spend money is to spend FREE money. :D

Weeks ago, we have some left over Popular vouchers (around RM190) to spend before they expire. So, EG and I went Gurney after work and spent almost the whole night in Popular to find things to buy, also need to make sure it's worth the values!! (kiasu-ism) And finally, we got 1 CD, and few books, and paid extra RM0.80 on top of the vouchers. Feel good! :D

Last Saturday, I woke up and suddenly remembered that I have more vouchers from the awards from my previous company which are going to expire soon (like in the next 1 or 2 days). 1st is my RM50 Haagen Dazs Vouchers - So, EG and I went Queensbay Mall and ordered two ice creams for ourselves. Sometimes I wonder how could ice cream cost so much, but guess it was really really gooooood and ricccccchhh and it's even BETTER when I don't need to pay from my own wallet but paid with vouchers... Kekekeke... Well, got la top up RM12. But it was so worth it! :)....

EG and his favoriate chocolates flavor

I wanted to try something different so I ordered Tangy mango

Next, I went to Body Shop and spent the RM50 vouchers with their foundation - the only thing that I think is useful for me. I have too many of those lotions and most of them ended up in the trash when they reach their expiry date. So, got my usual foundation (which i don't use often now) and top up another RM8+. So nice!!

We wanted to go to coffee bean to spend the other RM10 voucher but the ice cream was sweet and we wanted something salty instead, so that didn't happen, but we went KFC and shared a plate of snack plate to fill our tummy before going for a wedding dinner later on the night. And no, this round no voucher - using our own money from our wallet. Hehe...

It has been a long time since we can stroll in shopping mall relaxingly with no worry. I wish more relaxing weekends coming for us to rejuvenate after a long, tiring working week... *only if i don't need to do housework... bleah....
