Masterchef NOT

Lately friends and colleagues have been urging me to join Masterchef which I usually laugh off.

Do not let the pictures on this blog fool you into thinking I’m anything more than an amateur when it comes to cooking.

I fail frequently and just today, failed everything that I tried to cook. My smoked salmon pasta was watery and sour, urrgh, I don’t know how rabbit and Gerry managed to wolf it down, sheer support or fear me thinks.

Then my taofufa was powdery and just not right.

Sad (T___T). I don’t think I’ll be joining Masterchef anytime soon.

MYOB : Make your own burger

I’ve been off sick and staying at home for the past two days. While it is nice sleeping in, I’m sick of the body aches and the sniffling and can’t wait to get well again. But I can’t say excited about going back to work (T___T).

Being at home means I have lots of time on my hands, I should be resting but ended up baking instead. My first attempt at Hongkong Kueh a.k.a. Beehive Cake.


The cake turned out pretty good, holey enough and chewy texture, I only wish it was more brown. One of the best things about having a mum that is a great cook, she always has plenty of good recipes and tips to share with me (^___^). All my cake recipes are recommended and tried tested by my mum.


Gerry has been talking about eating dumplings for ages, so finally I made some pork and cabbage wantons for dinner.


We had the wantons with simple chicken soup.

Calv came over for dinner to help me with my computer problems, the Laptop God fixed my laptop for me and was rewarded with two slices of cake and icecream. We had butter chicken for dinner, a new recipe with evaporated milk, curry leaves, garlic and chilli, it’s very rich and needs to be eaten immediately before the sauce thickens up.


Lately we’ve been having MYOB sessions, it’s fun making your own burgers with fresh salads and thin tomato slices. Ok, back to the bed now, bye!
