Steamed Chicken

This is a dish I remember my grandmother preparing for every CNY reunion dinner when I was little. I never knew what the recipe was, but I loved the tender, juicy outcome.  It was great news for me when mum decided to make this dish, presumably based on some super cool culinary wisdom grandma passed on to her when she was still around.

And it was completely yummy. I have decided I will request for this amazing recipe from mum and pass it to the girlfriend. How nice kalau next time isteri can cook this for me.

I don't know if the gf reads this blog, but if she does, the above is a picture of the completed masterpiece for her reference. She can cook and I'm sure she'll be more than happy to make me my favourite dish. That is, when she's not busy convincing me to cook for me because she wants to sleep in :P

Seasonal Fruits!

Decided to procrastinate on some of my commitments, so here I am. Decided to post some photos of my favourite seasonal fruits as though you have never ever seen them before. It's not uncommon for me to skip dinner just to have these.

Yes, my family and I absolutely love durians. Don't be surprised when you see the four of us buying that many. We open them ourselves and finish most of them in one shot. The leftovers (maybe 5% of what you see above) will be kept in the fridge and later eaten just like durian ice-cream.

Unfortunately the season is almost over and I'll have to wait another year before I get to meet my thorny edible friends again.
