White Breath, Fried Rice and DIY Haircut.

After picking up Ah Rui from the nearby station last night, she mentioned that she could see her breath. It was only then I realised that the weather’s getting colder. It didn’t feel any colder though; I didn’t even notice the breath until she talked about it. Made my 2nd batch of Roti Prata last […]

I Made Roti Prata.

I’ve been thinking about eating Roti Prata for a while now. It’s something that I can so easily get back at home. A good meal of Roti Prata cost no more than SGD $10, but over here, the only shop that I’ve seen, so far, that has Roti Prata on its menu, is charging people […]

With my trusty paint roller on a pole, I’ve put on the last coating of paint yesterday on the walls and ceiling of the bathroom last afternoon. Now the bathroom is looking pretty good and new… Except for a few hard-to-reach, out-of-sight areas. Nevertheless, the coating of paint I’ve laid on those walls came out […]

Okonomiyaki for Dinner.

Made okonomiyaki for dinner tonight. It turned out surprisingly decent. I supposed it’s because I’ve got the mayonnaise, the okonomiyaki sauce and the bonito flakes, all the ingredients made the taste a lot more authentic. Unfortunately, in this cold weather, what I crave is warmth from the food I consume. The okonomiyaki doesn’t hold heat […]

Picking Up Cooking

Day 4. I’ve decided to learn how to cook. Personally, I don’t feel that cooking is difficult. I can understand the general concept of basic cooking, now it’s just a matter of putting in the time practising. Throughout this afternoon, I’ve spent a good amount of time searching for simple recipes online, collecting those that […]

Keep on rolling!

Hey! How is it going? It’s been about 2 months since my last entry, back in January. To spice up my life in these troubled and unstable times, I’m on a quest to learn new skills. For the past 2 months, I’ve been busy experimenting with Taiwanese egg rolls. Today, I would like to share […]
