Baked these chicken pies for our Picnic session tomorrow. Opps, I mean today! Gosh, only to realised that it's already 2:00AM in the morning when these pies came out pipping hot.

Practically most employees are on half day work today and thus, after my work, I headed off to Takashimaya for lunch. My Royal Prince Charming had his company lunch thus, I was strolling alone in Takashimaya for almost 2 hrs before his arrival.

We shopped the whole day and only managed to reached home at 1030pm. Getting the stuffs prepared and ensuring that my pie pastry is chilled enough took me quite sometime. Nevertheles, I am satisfied with my Chicken Pies. They smell so nice and I'm hungry now :S
