WB treated me to lunch at Oz to celebrate my DAY ! :) No home cooking coz he needed a rest and he knows I like the food here so I can order what I like LOL! This place has no air con but I like the deco and the food. It offers a unique dining experience. Specialise in Aussie Outback style roast chicken blended with bacon, herbs, spices and fruits with a flair of fusion cuisine influenced by British/Chinese/Indian and Peranakan style. This is my second time dining here :) My first visit was with Claire my buddy.

When it comes to engineering, I am at a lost coz I don't major in this subject. When my boss wanted to send me for a talk on some engineering products , I was flabbergasted. I went in to his office and tried to make him change his mind. After explaining to him and pleaded with him to please send the mechanical engineer instead of me :) Lucky for me, he sees my logic and took my name off from the list. But my other colleagues could not worm their way out and have to attend the Hydraulic Power Units seminar. Frankly speaking, this seminar should be attended by only the mechanical staff and engineers :) I am so happy, I managed to convince my boss that it will benefit the engineering people more.

This is another simple dish for prepared by WB for our dinner. I taught him a few tricks in cooking and now he wants to take over my domain - my kitchen...ok ok I surrender my kitchen to him for another few months after which hopefully I can reclaim back my territory. He guess he loves putting on the apron now ! This is how he prepared the fish for dinner :) As I watched him in the kitchen, I realized that he can cook better than me ! I think I shall hand over my role in the kitchen to him permanently LOL! This dish is prepared without my supervision. I was just the observer and watched in silent...a word from the observer and the temporary chef will go on strike :) Read on for WB's recipe
It is good to be a DIY person if you are staying at the States . Labor charges are pricey if you asked a plumber to come repair your piping or a car mechanic to service your car. Having a basic skill in simple repair works will have save a hole in your wallet. A friend of mine in the States is such a good DIY person that he can repair things without having to hire workers to do the repair in the house. Recently, he got himself a car lift just to service and repair his own car. None of us would have thought he is interested to buy car lifts for himself and his brother. Both are great DIY person :)

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL MOTHERS
" What's for dinner? " this is the most POPULAR question Wild Boar will shoot at me the moment I stepped into the car :) And when I told him " oh , either cook something simple or if you are lazy to do the cleaning up, eat out is not a problem " . So, if he is lazy to help me in the kitchen, we would eat out . If I have to cook, then something simple like this would be great. Crispy Fried Wanton ! There are many versions of fried wanton but I still like my mom's version :) You can fold them in any fashion you like. Wild Boar is happy with fried wanton and as long as it is not oily , he loves it to bits. And he doesnt mind helping in the preparation of this dish plus the WASHING UP lol ! Read on to see how nicely he managed to wrap the wanton :) He is becoming very domesicated of late.... hahaha
