I've got Twins!

This is a super over-due post because I'm suppose to make this entry almost 1.5 months ago but I forgotten all about it! Anyway, you can call me a nerd or whatever but this is the first time that I actually strike a twins :)

Nono, I meant a Twin-yolk egg! I don't mind having twin babies actually, so I'm praying hard that if I'm pregnant, I hope to strike a pair of twins ;)

Ahem.... Grrrrr....Ahhhhh

As the subject header goes, am currently declared sick :(
Went to work on Monday with a bad headache and halfway through, I felt warm. Yes, I practically felt warm in an overly cold (think north pole) environment! That means something but I ignored it. Went lunch with Esther and was telling her how awful I'm feeling, surprisingly I can still eat but not as much as I usually do (think hippo). We chatted a while and I sort of felt really uncomfortable and had the desire to seek a doctor help (think crawling to the clinic).

I waited 30 mins before I finally get to see the doctor. He was amazing shocked that I'm running a high temperature (think Sahara desert). I don't have any other symptoms except for a mild painful throat so he is not very keen to give me antibiotics. He wanted me to monitor my temperature because if it persists, then he is suspecting it might be dengue (think hospital). Ah, I got dengue once and I would never want to have it again another time!!!! Was give 1.5 days of MC and I totally dragged my feet home.

Back home, was upset with my Prince Charming for leaving me alone at home and happily venture to his Beloved cousin's house for some PS3 actions. I was like so goddamn (*beep) angry but oh well, what can I do? I had my medicine, sleep and ignored him the whole night. I tried to push him down the bed but no strength so I walked myself to the living room to sleep :(

He's a heavy sleeper so he only realized that I was not by his side when he woke up at 5am. Grrr... I was like shivering in the living room since 3am! Anyway, I gave him a whole load of shit (*beep) that day and he eventually raised his white flag. Wheeee! I WON!

Back in the office now and I almost doze off while clearing my 400+ emails. If only I could have 2 more days to rest at home. Sighhhhhh..

Cooking on a Saturday

Finally, I cooked up something! I have been like working non-stop and getting a little lazy with my kitchen. I have so many to-do lists and none are being carried out! Ahhhh, please give me 100 hrs of free timeeeee!

Anyway, while Prince Charming went for his lessons I was busy in the kitchen making dinner for both of us. I've promised him that I'll cook something special for him tonight so, I better not disappoint him :)

Woke up not very early but managed to squeeze in the crowd at NTUC for some fresh crabs and vegetables. My first time buying crabs so was sort of having question marks all over me on choosing better quality crabs. I think the auntie was a little impatient waiting for me!

I made this <黯然銷魂飯> which originated from Stephen Chow's 食神movie.
All you need: Cooked rice, boiled vegetables, 1 sunny side-up and some char siew. EASY!

The char siew recipe was taken from Baking Mum. It's really simple and delicious!
One thing for sure, I'll definitely make more of them the next time! The sauce goes very well with the rice. Yummmy!

A closer look at the Char siew. Making me hungry all over again!

I whipped up one local delicacy for a side dish too. Remember I mentioned about crabs?
Yes, I did Singapore Chilli crabs! The thoughts of slaughtering these creatures were a little horror but when I handled them today, it was rather simple! All you need is sufficient strength to chop them into pieces!

I used local chilli so it wouldn't be too spicy. I don't want my Prince Charming to have any tummy ache which always happen, whenever he eat something very spicy.

Another simple dish to try out there :)

Serves 2~3

Ingredients Amounts
Fresh live crabs
2 slices
Garlic2 cloves
Beaten egg
Beaten egg
5 Tbsp

Seasoning sauce: 2 tbsp of Chilli sauce + 1 tbsp of Vinegar + 2 tbsp Sugar + 1 tsp Salt

  1. Blend chilli, garlic and ginger into very fine mixture.

  2. Heat oil in wok and fry the crabs till they turn red. Scoop up the crabs and set aside.

  3. Stir in the chilli mixture into the work and stir fry for 2 mins.

  4. Add in the cooked crabs and pour in the seasoning sauce.

  5. Cooked till the mixture are well incorporated with the crabs.

  6. Shut off the heat and stir in the beaten egg. Ready to serve.

Be extra careful when frying the crabs in hot oil. Due to the fact that there are still some moisture on the crabs, you may experience hot oil splashing out from the wok. For me, I hold the wok cover like an Armour to protect myself ;)

(Dinner time!)
