Community Blogger Award
from Adrian.

The community award originated with Cellobella at the Sultana blog, who said, "I wanted the award to say - this is a person who reaches out and makes my blogger community a better one."

Braised Chicken Feet And Mushrooms

This is my all-time favourite dish. I knew there are not many peoples who like chicken feet. I used to one of them. But my mom has influenced me into eating this delicate part. It's really yummy if you know how to eat it. Hope you'll enjoy this recipe! :)

30 pairs chicken feet
4 Tbsp light soy sauce (A)
1 Tbsp dark soy sauce (A)

36 dried mushrooms (soaked to soften)
5cm length ginger (sliced)
4 star anise
15 dried chilli (soaked to soften)
5 cloves garlic (chopped finely)
2 shallots (chopped finely)
3-4 Tbsp oil
1.5 litres water

3 Tbsp oyster sauce
3 Tbsp light soy sauce
3 Tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp chicken stock granules

1 Tbsp corn four (B)
3 Tbsp water (B)

1. When buying chicken feet from hypermarket or wet market, make sure that they have chopped off the claws from chicken feet.

2. Clean chicken feet well. Marinade with (A) for 30mins. Drain well in a colander. Make sure that there are less liquid in the chicken feet.

3. Heat enough oil in a wok and deep-fry chicken feet under medium heat until lightly browned. Drain from oil.

4. Place the deep fried chicken feet into a basin of cold water to soak for one hour. Drain well in a colander.

5. Heat oil in a wok and saute shallot, garlic and ginger till fragrant. Add mushrooms, dried chilli and water then bring to a simmering boil.

6. Put in chicken feet, seasoning and star anise. Bring to a boil again then simmer over gentle heat until chicken feet turns tender. Mix (B) in a small bowl and add to the sauce to thicken.

Note: If you are afraid that the oil will splatter all over you, sprinkle some corn flour on the chicken feet before frying. It will be less oil splaterring. I repeat LESS, not NONE. (By the end of the deep-frying process, my kitchen was all oily frm the oil splaterring. It was a mess!)

[5] Annoying Things + [8] Habits + [6] Quirks

I am a real procrastinator when it comes to meme & tags. I love being tagged but somehow, i do not understand why, it takes quite some time for me to get it done. But blessedly, all these while, my taggers have been very patient with me.

Thank you, guys! :)
So, today, I am gonna do three memes in one post.

free glitter text and family website at
I was tagged by Emmy last November on 5 things that annoyed me. Emmy, here goes my top 5 things:

1. Bad Drivers - I hate those drivers who thought they are good at driving but actually they sucks!! I hate those drivers that doesn't know how to use the signal light! I hate those drivers that swtiches lane as tho' the road are theirs!

2. Slow Service - When I goes into a restaurant or any shop, I expect to be served at least within the first 5 minutes. More than that, i'll be looking for the superior. (This reminds me of a tag i still owed Marzie about complaints. Sorry, Marzie! I'll do it at my soonest, ya!)

3. Repeating Myself - I hate having to repeat myself in a conversation. The most I can say the same thing again is twice.

4. Slow connection - I don't have much patience waiting. If the internet connection is slow, it really piss me off.

5. Computerized Receptionist - "She" says press "1 for English", press "2 for Malay", and i press "1", then she continue saying press "1 for blah", "2 for blah blah", "3 for blah blah blah". After pressing for 2-3 times, if it's still the computerized receptionist talking, it really get to my nerve. Usually I'll just press "0" to talk to a real human.

Agnes tagged me on 8 Habits meme! It's actually quite similar to the 8 random facts meme that i've done around mid of last year & done again just a month after that. I can't believe that after a year this tag is still going around. So, Justin Timberlake was right in his song! What goes around comes around! :)

Here are the rules:

1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.
3. At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment on their blog and tell them they’ve been tagged, and to come back and read your blog for the whole story.

Here's my 8 Habits/ Facts:

1. I'm a coffee addict! (most of you already knew about this, rite!)
2. I'm a procrastinator! (who's not? :P)
3. I'm a pink addict!
4. 8 random facts was the first meme i did, & I was tagged by Marzie back then. :)
5. I'm a nutella addict! I've just bought a large jar from Egypt.
6. I'm a handbag addict! (again, who's not? :P except for the guys lar) :P
7. I love my niece! I can't go through a day without hearing her voice.
8. I'm a F.R.I.E.N.D.S. addict! Seen all their episodes, till the last one!

For this 6 Quirks meme, I was tagged by my newly found good friend, Jackie.

The Rules:

1. Link the person(s) who tagged you
2. Mention the rules on your blog
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours...
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them…
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

1. I shared this one with Jackie. We are both fussy about our hamburgers. I like mine with no onions, less chilli and less mayo.

2. I loved to observe peoples. From the way they dressed up to the way they behave in public, and wonder about their backgrounds. However, I don't judge peoples by their look. No doubt the first impression is important, but you will still get a second chance from me. Attitude is the most important! :)

3. I loved cooking & baking, but I am very lazy in dishwashing. That's why I need someone to clean after me. Usually, it's my maid.

4. I must have my clothes arranged accordingly in the wardrobe. For instance, long sleeve is at the most left and sleeveless is at the most right. And the hangers with clothes must all faced one side. Strictly no hanging for those clothes with stretchable fabric, it must be folded nicely and kept in drawer.

5. Ever since i found out about how i can go green in my daily activities, i've been driving the most 90km/h and setting all the air-conditioners in my house to between 23-25°C. I've even set the one at my future parents-in-laws. :D

6. I am not very good in my cantonese. My darling & his family has a nick for me - "Shanghai Girl". They meant that i speak like a shanghai girl. :P

Ok, so I've done all the three memes: 5+8+6=19. All right, 19 will be it! I will tag 19 of my wonder~licious friends to do the above three memes: Marzie, Emila, Janice, Bobby, Liza, Sam, Ratu Syura, Shemah, Sabrina, Lee Chien, Adie, Sushi, Nick, Adrian, Sukku, Rozella, LadyJava, Farah and Trin.

ok, guys, I'll give you a break. You can choose to do either one ot three of them. See! I am so good, right! :) Since I've accomplished so much today, I do deserve a nice cup of latte, right! Here's an interestingly fun quiz that i found while visiting MPG today. Cheers, everyone! :)

What Your Latte Says About You

You don't treat yourself very often. You find that indulging doesn't jibe with your very disciplined life.

You are a very frivolous person. You don't take anything too seriously. Why should you?

Intense and energetic, you aren't completely happy unless you are bouncing off the walls.

You're addicted to caffeine. There's no denying it.

You are a child at heart, and you don't ever miss the opportunity to do something playful.

You are sophisticated and daring, but you are never snobby.

SYR #1: Chicken Sambal by Sukku

I saw this dish at Sukku while visiting him today. He asked if anyone is interested in getting the recipe. I thought that this dish is yummylicious and invited him to publish in "Share Your Recipe" column. Within 30mins, i received this recipe in my inbox, with a smile on my face.

Sukku is my newly found blogger buddy. His friendly trait has gotten us on the roll. And it's my great pleasure to publish this recipe by Sukku in AGP. Thanks, Sukku! :)

 J E A N   C H I A © 2007

Main Dish: Chicken Sambal

A. For sambal paste
1. 25 nos. red chillies
2. 2 tomato
3. 1 medium size onion
4. 3 nos. of garlic
5. A little light soya sauce (1 tsp)
6. 1 tablespoon oil
7. Salt to taste
8. 1 teaspoon belachan granules(optional)

B. Main ingredients
1. 500 grammes chicken
2. 1 teaspoon tumeric powder
3. 2 large onions
4. 1 large capcicum
5. Bunch of corriander leaves
Steps = Making the sambal paste

Deseed the 25 nos of chillies and soak them for 30 minutes in boiling
water. Then squeeze out the water and add the rest of the ingredients in
A in a blender and blend for 3 to 4 minutes until it is a fine paste.

Preparing the chicken

Rub the tumeric on the chicken and set aside with salt to taste

Cooking process

Pour in cooking oil for deep frying. Deep fry the chicken over slow
flame till it browns and set this aside.

In a wok use the oil that was used for deep frying (add more if not
enough)and fry the sambal paste until it is fragrant. Then put in the deep
friend chicken along with the cubed onions. Salt to taste. Cook for 5
minutes and simmer on low flame until the oil floats. Garnish with
capcicum and corriander leaves.

This recipe is modified and it is simple because it is difficult to
find most of the ingredients in Hyderabad and belacan is optional too.

According to Sukku, this dish is dangerously spicy! He was sweating profusely while eating this dish. For those who enjoy spicy food like me I do, you can try this recipe at home. Enjoy! :)

Stir Fried Butter Sauce Crabs

I made this dish last weekend. It is spicy and yummy~licious! I've made this a little too dry on my first attempt. If you like, you could add more evaporated milk to have more gravy. With more gravy, you can steam mantao pau to go with it. Oh, I've also tried this style with Lala. It's yummy too and less expensive. :)

1kg mud crabs
4 Tbsp margarine
200ml evaporated milk
2 sprigs curry leaves
10 chilli padi
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp monosodium glutamate
1 Tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp chicken stock granules

1. Clean crabs as shown in the video below. My darling is an expert crab killer! The crabs were still alive when he cracked open the body. I had tears in my eyes while watching this. But we have to kill it this way to ensure the freshness. After cleaning the crabs, cut into 4 pieces/ crab.

----(i am sry, i couldn't upload the video at photobucket. The max allowed is only 100Mb, while my video is 162Mb. ><)----

Update on 20/June @ 7.23am: Yay, Alas! I was able to upload the video at youtube! Video: How To Prepare The Crabs For Cooking

2. Leave to drain the cut crabs in a colander for 30mins. Heat 5-6 tbsp oil until hot. Fry crabs until cooked. During the frying process, allow 2-3 times of steaming by closing the wok wt a lid. Scoop out.

3. Melt margarine in a heated wok. Remove wok away from the heat and add in curry leaves and chili padi. Stir in milk.

4. Return wok to the fire. Cook over a low heat until gravy turns thick. Combine all the seasonings in a small bowl. Add crabs and seasoning and mix well with the sauce. Dish out & serve immediately.

Note: If you are using Lala, skip step 1 & 2. Fry lala with the sauce until lala is cooked. 1-2 slice/s of cheddar cheese can be added to the sauce for a more chessy taste. :)

Happy trying! :)

Additional Note (20/June @ 6.54pm): If using Lala, clean it thoroughly through running water. Soak in salt water for an hour before cleaning it again under running water. Drain completely dry in a colander before stir-fry it.
