Baibai Sonic Gear, Hello Edifier

I received my new speaker 2 days ago.. but because I just implemented the 1 day 1 post policy, therefore the Edifier M3300 finally gets its turn today..
I was about to set up the speaker, then i realise my table is full of rubbish i have no place to put it..I bent down 2 fit in the subwoofer, OMG... full of dust.. grr.. ofcourse kenot let my new paobei speaker get dirty rite..

end up spending 2 hours cleaning my whole room, compress all the micro-dusts in the vacuum cleaner... my flatmate cams in also stunt for 2 miliseconds..

there...

This is where i spend 51% of my non-sleeping hours...

now with new Eddy, predicted to increase to 60%.

Sori to the old apek downstairs...

How do stupid people function?

Sometimes you just don't understand why people are so stupid..

How do stupid people function?

How can someone throw their mobile phone into the sea?

How can someone leave their passport in the car, and then got that car stolen in front of their house?

How can someone crash into the school gate just because she sneezes?

How can someone lose theirs specs again and again and still hang it on their neck knowing it'll fall off?

How can someone lose her mobile phone after 1 week jus because she was busy talking and din realise she dropped it?

How can someone MISS a flight back to Malaysia? then to realise that the flight doesn't exist in the first place?

How can that someone again book a new flight back and then booked it wrongly AGAIN.. no, its not the wrong date, not the wrong time, cos she is smart enough to check again and again, but the wrong DIRECTION...

How can someone book a train and went the day after?

How can someone put their specs on top of their contact lenses? like what I did today..

Worst, how can I put 2 contact lenses in the same eye???

HOW DO I FUNCTION???

OMG...I am stupiddd!!!

100g Char Siew(bbq pork) - slice
1 Chinese sausage (lap cheong), slice
10g black Chinese mushrooms, soaked and cut into thin slices (ai hua tutup, so no mushrooms)
I added cashew nuts, cos the ones i alwiz eat got 1..hehe

Seasoning (A):
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp oyster sauce (again, ai hua tutup, so takda)
1 tsp ginger juice
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt

(gua agak agak la, do the normal tau yiu chicken)

1 1/2 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp oil
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp dark soy sauce
1/2 tsp Chinese five spice powder

Method:

Wash glutinous rice, then soak it for two to three hours.

Steam it for 30 minutes. (put on muslin cloth n steam through)

Cut chicken into slices. Marinate with seasoning (A) for about one to two hours.

Stirfry the chicken with the ingredients.. + mushroom.

Mix cooked glutinous rice and seasoning (B) (I stir fry abit, make sure its evenly distributed..then try first.. by now its like loh mai fan oredi..)

Grease six small-size rice bowls.

Arrange mushroom slices, a few slices of Chinese sausages ,chicken and bbq pork slices.

Top up with glutinous rice and press down with a ladle.

Fill the bowls with water/chicken stock, make sure the water level is above the rice.

Steam for 30-40 minutes. Alternatively, wrap the bowls with plastic wrap , poke the wrap and microwave on high , 3 bowls at a time for 20 25 minutes. Repeat with the other 3 bowls.

Final... meow...

Oscar, more known as meow meow to me... cos I never lived with a cat b4, so he shall be "The Meow Meow"...
He's gone to another family for good..

No more worrying about leaving kitchen door opened..

No more worrying of not sumbat-ing my door with paper (cos he IS smart, he noes dat my door just need to push 2 open n not jenn's 1)

No more worrying about leaving cups around incase he spills it..

No more "meow's at night..

No more having to wake up at night to shoo him off the bed...

No more dreams about cats strangling me..

No more smell of cat urine at home...

No more cute fur ball waiting for me to come back...

No more manja-ing with me on my chair... he likes 2 cuddle close 2 me when i'm watching movie..

Yes, as Jenn said, going into the kitchen now seems weird..

He'll alwiz sits outside the kitchen looking innocently...

First thing I do after enter the flat: find where the Meow Meow is.. now? it won't be anywhere...

Does the flat seems quieter now?

I knew he was going, just din expect to be so soon.. the new owner came 2 collect him.huhu, glad that i played with him the last time b4 he leaves..

Haih, shud have let him sleep with me yesterday..

Shud have let him eat some salmon yesterday..

See how we alwiz take things for granted.. alwiz only treasure things when they're gone..

I'm sure he's gone to a better home...

Dono if he misses me too...


Bye Meow Meow...

Rempah Udang aka Pulut Panggang

As promised:
One fine afternoon, jogged to Hing Sing, a Chinese Supermarket in Leith 2 get banana leaf for my rempah udang.. + have to rush back for badminton afterdat..

I am getting more impressed with this supermarket, they alwiz have stuff that I din expect.. like some grean bean powder from indonesia.. now my banana leaves n pandan leaves too (thx Jenn for the info)... haih, at home, my pandan leaves grow ber-bush-bush, just cut and wash can use liao..one of the ingredient alwiz taken for granted..

and this...
Buah keras @ candlenut.. one of the stuff normally used in nyonya food..

and this:

Winter melon@tong kua.. hmm.. (tot wana omit that oredi, manatau ada..)

Hasil kajian recipe-recipe and also from my 22 years experience of living in Nyonya town, Melaka...

Rempah Udang Recipe

Ingredients
  • 300g glutinous rice, washed, soaked overnight and drained

  • 100ml thick coconut milk mixed with 1 tsp salt and 1 tbsp sugar

  • 1 banana leaf, cut into 20 pieces (of 13x10cm rectangles), scalded to soften and wiped dry

  • 40 pieces of 3cm-long bamboo picks, cut both the pointed edges (if malas use stapler also can la..)

  • 8 pandan leaves washed and knotted
  • Filling
  • 50g white grated coconut (gua guna dessicated coconut..dono where 2 get grated here aa)

  • 50g dried prawns, soaked, drained and pounded

  • 50g prawns finely chopped (this 1 i added from another recipe)

  • 30g candied winter melon, chopped finely

  • 1 tbsp oil

    Ingredients (A) – (Ground finely) - if gotmortar use mortar n tumbuk
  • 1 tbsp roasted coriander powder

  • 1 small piece cekur root (sar keong) (Kenot findd!!!)

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 6 shallots

  • 1 red chilli, seeded (or 1/2 tsp chilli paste

  • 1 lemon grass and 1 buah keras (from another recipe) - if no buah keras, can use brazillian nuts kot..

    Seasoning (B)
  • 1/2 tsp pepper powder

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper powder

  • 3 tsp sugar (i added more to my liking, the ones i eat alwiz sweeter 1..hehe)

  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste

  • 2 tbsp water


  • Method

    Place rice on muslin lined steamer + pandan leaves + cucuk some lubang for steam to pass tru..

    Steam glutinous rice for 20 minutes then add salt, sugar and thick coconut milk to the rice.

    Colour half the rice with blue colouring if u like ..or with the blue flower juice, dono what it is called liao...bunga kantan?

    Let it stay for 2 mins.


    Return rice and coconut mixture to the steaming tray and steam for another 10 minutes until well cooked.

    Panfry the grated white coconut until evenly browned n wangi...

    Heat oil in a wok and fry ingredients (A) until fragrant. Add the prawns, dried prawns, seasoning (B), coconut and candied melon. Kacau -kacau till evenly distributed.. then taste n see.... not enuf sweet add sugar, not enuf salty add salt..

    Dish out and set aside to cool.


    Take the rice out n stir evenly, like making sushi rice lidat..

    Place 2 tablespoonful of glutinous rice in the centre of a banana leaf.

    Grease the leaf if u need to..

    Spread one tablespoonful of filling in the centre:

    Roll the rice firmly, if not enuf rice, add sumore, dun kiam siap..

    Wrap each roll firmly in the banana leaf, press the ends together and secure the ends with bamboo picks.


    Grill the rolls over charcoal fire or in an electric grill for 15 minutes, turning the rolls
    occasionally. An alternative is to pan-grill the rolls in a frying pan, to brown the banana leaves all over, until aromatic..Lastly, arrang and take picture for blogging purposes...



    Itu sahaja..sekian terima kasih
