I have not been doing anything on E&E since my college days… was like 16 years ago….
With 2 boys, it’s time to pick up the solder, wire, diode, leds – start cracking their head and attention to have fun in making circuit. Links…

Valentine Fragrant Laksa Chilli Chicken Version 1.0 :-)

Filed under: Kitchen — agnes @ 11:29 am

On Valentine morning market walk about, bought 4 ripe tomatoes, chilli paste and finely chopped onion for one and a half free range chicken, laksa leaves(daun kesum), torch ginger flower (bunga kantan)… Leftover assam paste in the kitchen.

2-3 tbsps of oil to cook onion till fragrant, follow by quartered tomatoes untill soften – then add chilli paste according to taste and cook till chilli oil appears on the side of the pot. Add assam paste water according to degree of sour taste preferred. Add chicken to cook until the meat tenderness desired. Add finely cut laksa leaves and torch ginger flower.

My mother like laksa without sambal, coconut milk and the usual spices. She loves to serve this version of laksa gravy with steam or fried fish. I like it as it is less hassle than the full version of asam laksa, laksa lemak and kari laksa. I love the fragrance of laksa leaves and torch ginger flower. Next round I should garnish this dish with finely sliced torch ginger flower, red chilli and mint leaves. Mental note: Next time fry the chicken a little on the outside before cooking & remember to shoot photos. 🙁

Can I replace Clementine with KumQuat?

Filed under: Kitchen,Let's Salivate — agnes @ 6:03 am

Vegan Yum Yum baked and blogged about Candied Clementine Cake. Chinese New Year has just ended. I don’t think Mandarin Oranges would be as nice. I wonder Candied Clementines can be replaced by KumQuat as well.

林忆莲 “疯了”

Filed under: Music — agnes @ 7:44 am

曲名:疯了 歌手:林忆莲 专辑:盛放忆莲

准许我进入你臂内 灵魂内
你别离开 别离开
若前来 请不要问其实这该不该
如狂风吹吧 像浪与海
如浮沙卷吧 别要分析
若让夜和我 为你痴到透了

知不知一开始 已发觉爱你不可止
我早已为你 为你疯了
我爱你 你可知多少
我早已为你 为你疯了

可否快进入 我震动灵魂内
我为谁生 为谁等 为谁来

知不知一开始 已发觉爱你不可止
我早已为你 为你疯了
而恋火把此心烧焦 我爱你 你可知多少
我早已为你 为你疯了
