Feeling Bamboo-ie

A few weeks ago....right after returning from our trip overseas, I was craving for home cooked food hence I decided to cook something homey....

I whipped out the Bamboo steamer that I bought last year but never really used (except for steaming Paos)....and went out to buy some ingredients to cook a scrumptious meal for the hubby and I.

Lo and behold I present to you........

Steamed Blue Eye with Black Beans...
(Before Steaming)

I know its very Chinese...but I AM of CHINESE background..

Fermented Black Beans were used.....not the pre-prepared black bean sauce things you buy from the I wasn't cheating..... and I had spring onions lying underneath the fish too......

Anyone interested in getting the recipe? HHaha

Valentine's @ the Khoo's
I look like a horse in this pic... and a bit red from the wine

Celebrating the 'Day of Love' won't be complete without some mischief from Muffin

Muffin's nose on the bottom right corner
Then I decided to let him pose with the Heart Shaped Icing
In 2 seconds, he launches an attack 

The food we had were catered by Porgie's and Mr Jones @ Auburn Rd
- French Baguettes
- Brownies, raspberry tarts, portugese tarts, scones, muffins
- Fritatas
- Osyters - not from Porgies - Joe had a craving so we ran down to get some from South Melb Market

And flowers for our lovely buddy...adriana...

Van's BACK

Its been a few weeks since my previous post.
The reasons:
- Holidaying in Hong Kong & Malaysia 
- Computer at home is still DEAD

But now.....I've got a new laptop and I'm back in business! YIPEEEEE!!! Thank you Hubbie for such a lovely present! Lap u long time ^^

Things I've been up to lately:

1) Back to Uni since the 2nd Feb - lots and lots of lab work 
This is a Lamb's tongue! We had to make cuts on it and then suture it!!! Yummy....... 
It actually smells a bit :)

2) Reading - THE READER -
A Nazi book (sort of) with Kate Winslet starring in the movie. A bit boring....won't recommend it....unless u like the story of a middle-aged woman seducing a 15 y.o boy and then dissapears and reappears 10 years later to find out that she is actually a Nazi officer....etc etc etc... B.O.R.I.N.G..

As you can see...I read this book on my bed to put me to sleep... and it works. If you suffer from insomnia, I'll gladly pass u this book.
