Tonight’s dinner

Tonight’s side dishes to go with our rice: Green curry made from a green curry flavour pack my mum had bought from KL. The taste isn’t that much different from the usual curry we have. I think it might be because we use a good amount of fresh santan (coconut milk) in both curries, and […]

Expensive groceries

Argh. I spent quite a bit on groceries yesterday; I should say I’d spent the money on luxurious groceries. I finally went to Guan Hock Lee, which is a distributor for most, if not all, of the Japanese ingredients and food products sold in Brunei. And the items are not cheap.

Maggi Mee (aka, instant noodles/ramen)

Today, I woke up really late as I’d only gone to bed at around 4am the night before. I had started reading Sharon Shinn’s Archangel again, and because I didn’t feel sleepy, I kept reading till the book was finished. I was pretty dismayed when I realised what time it was as I’d meant to […]

Sushi for lunch!

It was my first time measuring out rice and water completely on my own and thank goodness the rice wasn’t too soft. ^_^; While it was cooling, I went and fried my crispy fish fingers (a new ingredient I wanted to try with sushi rice) and boiled my crabsticks. I left out the carrots and […]
