Lunch by my Ah-Lao: Bak Kwa Fried Rice

Its a Super hot afternoon today and no one feel like leaving the house. We have a pack of Bak Kwa (BBQ Pork) in our fridge since CNY and my hubby suggested Bak Kwa fried rice for lunch. I always have cooked white rice in my fridge (to feed my dogs)... so I asked him to do the "frying" since he came out with the idea ;-)
Not bad looking rite??? ;-)
close-up... not bad hor??? with lots of 料:D
2 eggs (beaten, fried and cut into stripes)
2 slices Bak Kwa (cut into stripes)
2 bowls overnight Cooked white rice from the fridge
10 medium size prawns (shelled and cut into half, fry till red & curled up)
7 artificial crab sticks (diced)
some brocolli flower (for the color)
3tbsp chicken stock (ready-made, swonsen brand)
1tsp salt
1 garlic, chopped finely
1tbsp cooking oil (we use corn oil)
Heat up wok, fry the garlic till fragrant, add in Bak Kwa, fry for a while, add in rice then everything from ingredients(B). Add in chicken stock and salt and continue frying for a while more... Dish on a large plate and garnish with fried egg stripes. Done!!

By the way, he really did only the "frying" part. The rest of the work r done by his "maria" ME :D

Sad response from B-I-Y regarding the lousy cake workshop

Of coz, my disappointment with the lousy Topsy Turvy demo class was followed by a complaint-email from me to Cheryl, the boss of B-I-Y..... And sadly, her response to me was an email pasted below :( haiz :( what else can I say??? LL lor :P (oops! sorry for that word :PP)

RE: Disappointed with Class :(
From: Cheryl Chee View

To: Sherynn

Hi Sherynn,
Thank you for your feedback. There was a mix of experience level in the class which may have affected a little, how the class was conducted. I have contacted 2 other students in this class to understand their opinions, and the general feedback regarding the instructor and the class has been positive, but of course, there is always space for improvement.
I appreciate the time you have taken to bring this to my attention and I will continue to look into this matter to see how we can further improve this demonstration class.

Lousy Cake Workshop @ B-I-Y :(

I attended a lousy cake workshop today at B-I-Y :( I signed up for a Topsy Turvy Cake Demonstration class but the instructor was showing us only how to put fondant on 2 cakes then, stack them up to form a tier-cake... I was not satisfied with the demo so I questioned the instructor about how I thought a "Topsy Turvy" cake should look like... then she started slicing the tier-cake here and there and at the end of the class, this is how HER version of "Topsy Turvy" cake looked like!!!! Haiz... wat a waste of time :( B-I-Y standard drop until like this arh!!! Really DISSAPPOINTED!!

OMG... that's the Instructor's version of "Topsy Turvy" cake!! :( so messy!!

I further question her about what I expected to learn from this class... and I even drew her some picture of the shape of cake I tot it should be... then she started flipping the cake here and there and... oh well... like tat oso can teach arh!!! **faintz**
anyway, that class was really total wastage of my time... I think I can get better demonstration from those youtube clips anytime :D luckily I got some nice catch from the retail shop... :D

Breakfast on 正月初八

Brought too much food to the gambling session and we ended up bringing back 4 mini orange cheesecake pie back home for the next day's breakfast :DDun those mini pandan chiffon cake look familiar?? yes... they r from my dear baking-pal, LF aka fatmumbaking ;-)
the pandan chiffon tasted really yummy!!! its so soft.... it melts in your mouth man!! ;-)

my mini cheesecake also not bad lah :P but still feel that it will taste better on its own, without the oranges as the taste of the canned-oranges had kind of over-rided the taste of my chessecake :(

大吉大利Mandarin Orange CheeseCake Pie

大吉大利CheeseCake Pie

I made this batch of Mandarin Orange CheeseCake Pie for hubby's gambling session @ his ex-colleague's place this afternoon. They r done on ready-made graham biscuit Pie Base, bought @ Cold Storage. Wonder did I peel, de-skin, de-fiber and de-seed the mandarin oranges? No lah :D I use canned mandarin oranges!! Made my life much easier ;-)
I like these mini CheeseCake Pie... do they look like flower petals??? ;-)

inside the cheesecake ;-)

Hearts and Stars Cookies

Had so much of the Strawberry and Vanilla cookie dough left from the Lollipop Cookiez... so I made them into these cookies ;-) The Strawberry flavour kind of over-rided the Vanilla... my cookie jar smelled so sweet when I open the cover :D suddenly I feel like a cookie monster =P

Lollipop Cookiez

Inspired by Heather... but mine definitely look so lousy :( thanks to the super hot weather here in Singapore... my cookie dough was melting its way while I'm doing this... I was like open, close, open, closing the fridge doors every other minute.... How i wish my kitchen is air-conditioned!!! ;-)

Anyway, I had fun and the kids love them a lot too ;-) Thanks Heather!!
