Spicy Butter Prawns

M & I has always been a big fan of SEAFOOD. We used to have our seafood feast at Telok Gong or Kepong. But now that I can cook better, we prefer to enjoy them at our cozy home.

600g large prawns
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp sesame oil
1 cup corn flour
1 tbsp curry powder

2 tbsp butter
3 bird's eyes chillies (thinly sliced)
2 cloves garlic (chopped)
3 sprigs curry leaves

1. Marinade prawns with salt, sugar, pepper & sesame oil for 1/2 an hour.

2. Combine corn flour and curry powder in a plate. Coat prawns with the flour mixture and deep-fry them.

3. In a clean wok, heat butter. Saute garlic, add in chillies and curry leaves. Fry till fragrant. Add in the prawns and mix well with the ingredients.

Note: You can start adding in garlic when the butter is halfway melting. Butter is easily burnt. So, work fast with the ingredients.

This food post is dedicated to my buddy Rizal. Rizal, hope you've enjoyed my seafood dish!

Should I?

I am mad at my friend but am not sure if I have the right to be mad at her. She is a very close friend of mine and a friend that I wanted to grow old with. We used to go out for a drink once a week, but as our personal & work lives demanded more of our times, we spend lesser time together. However, every time we meet up, we would chat endlessly and it makes up for those months that we haven't been talking to each others.

This year, our relationship got abit tense. We haven't been seeing each others except for birthday celebrations, and it is like 4 months once. Despite that, I thought I still have a very special relationship with her.

Recently, I received an email from her after months of no-news from her. It's an update of her life: her new boyfriend and new job. If she has written this email just to me, I would be very happy. But there were about 8 recipients. She has emailed this to all our friends. It is just like another group discussion. I felt betrayed and hurt because I thought if there is any big changes in our lives, we would inform each others personally first. She could have insist on asking me out for a drink and update me about this, or perhaps email to me personally first. My thought of our special bonding was crushed.

I told my darling about this and he asked me to let it go. He said that when someone changes, you should just let it be. So if your friend do not put this friendship on HIGH, then you should do likewise. Do not expect anything in return! I hated what he said but I am not blaming him. His thinking is always very simple, and not complicated. Unlike me, I am more emotional and complicating.

A few days after receiving her email, we had a birthday gathering. We did not talk much to each others, mainly it was a group chit-chatting. I couldn't help myself from feeling betrayed and hurt. And a sense of awkwardness filled up the gap. I know that I could just let this feeling eats up our friendship but the question is Should I? Should I tell my friend what I am feeling inside and work my way in mending back our friendship? Or should I just let it be?

Chendol Pudding

This recipe was passed down to me by my aunt (Kam Mo). She's a great cook and I've always been a no.1 fan of her culinary. She's pretty, talented (used to be an illustrator before marriage), cook and bake very well.

This chendol pudding is M's favourite dessert from me. I've made this on his birthday as a replacement for his birthday cake.


Bottom Layer
5 tsp agar-agar powder
130g sugar
560ml thin coconut milk
1/2 tsp salt
220ml thick coconut milk
1 packet/220g chendol strips

Top Layer
3 tsp agar-agar powder
420ml thin coconut milk
30g sugar
150g palm sugar/ gula melaka
2pcs pandan leaves
220ml thick coconut milk
1/2 tsp salt

Bottom Layer
1. Add all the ingredients (except thick coconut & salt) in a pot, combine well. Boil it until sugar dissolved, stirring constantly.

2. When mixture is boiled, add in the thick coconut milk and salt.

3. Continue to stir until mixture started to form bubbles at the side. Off the flame, add in chendol strips.

Important Note: Do not over-boiled the mixture. It must be taken off flame second before it reach the boiling point. If you're not careful and over-boiled the mixture, it will form a thin layer of 'skin' on the surface.

4. Pour mixture into an 8" square tin. Let the mixture slightly set on the surface before pouring in the top layer.

Top Layer
5. Repeat the same with the top layer.

Tips: Scar the surface of the bottom layer with a fork or knife before pouring in the top layer. This is ensure that both layers will stick together.

My Cutie Pies

It has been a while since I last update you guys on my favourite nieces, the Sister Sister. They both has grown up to be so intelligent and adorable, I would say. The elder one, Chloe, is 3 years & 2 months old while Chairmaine or familiarly known as Mei Mei is 1 year & 3 months old.

Chairmaine 1st Birthday at McD's: [From left to right] My Aunt (Kam Mo), Me, Charmaine, My cousins: Mei Chin, Mei Yen and Mei Yu.

Chloe & me on her 3rd birthday party.

Chloe & M: Best Buddies.

Chloe Hugging M. (Marzie, Shem, this is the BB pic i've mentioned. So cute & sweet, kan!)

This was the face she showed me when I have asked for a smile. ihikhik

This is one of the few 'Clear' photo of Chairmaine. She doesn't like to sit still or pose for camera. adus

Aren't they super adorable? Perhaps I can submit their photos in the 2009 Cute Kid of The Year Cutest Baby Picture Competition. If I win, I can get $25,000. Imagine all the toys I could buy with it. rindu Haha.. What do you guys think? Am I too early to be dreaming? senyumkenyit
