Curry Time

Yep..Back in Melbourne. Back to the old times....having to SUFFER...think of what to eat next. Cooking at home saves more money...and hopefully its healthier! hehhee...

This is authentic Thai Red Curry. Got the curry paste from Volcan (the closest u can get to achieving Ying Thai standard). All u need is to heat the paste in a little oil until fragrant (pls check if your nose is working). Then add preferred meat, then coconut milk, vegies....fish sauce....some lemon grass...and some basil leave/lime leaves!!!! oh and sugar if it gets too salty. VOILA....THAI CURRY.... SA WAI DI KAAAAAAAAAAAA/crap

And as a side dish, I stir fried some eggs with good old chives..and also a bowl of salad with citrus fruit dressing. WOoo Yummy.... Go Cherry tomatoes!!!!!!

Kuih Kuih (malay for cake)

I will load more interesting pics of Hongkie streets...can't seem to find Joe's camera even though its pretty big! Those who attended my graduation should remember the size of it!

In the mean time, let me introduce you to this handsome looking thing. Its BBQed fragrant glutinous rice wrapped in banana leaves (baby shrimp, chicken...etc in its filling). Its a typical Malay 'patisserie'. hehhee.. I love it. The other square white stuff is some sort of jello... should be made with cococut milk if my tongue is correct.
