Skinny Chilli Cheese Fries

IMG_1323

I thought about making fries. After the episode of absolutely shitty Aston fries last week (talk about a greasy, tasteless, gross mess of potato strips), I dreamt of crunchy, non- greasy, tempura-like, garlicky, peppery potato chunks. Topped with nacho cheese, spring onions and even chilli. And then I found the perfect fries at The Purple … Continue reading

Yeah, its me. Back after twisting another foot, surviving a fever that’s (thank God) not due to dengue, and bearing with the aftermath of the fever– the worst kind of cough that causes even air to tickle the throat. Yikes. Now I have Show Luo’s eye bags, my bro’s practically permanent panda eyes and a … Continue reading

. One of the things I love most of Taiwan is the varied speeds of change in the country. The rocky path to my grandparents’ house  have those same old rocks embedded, the same old metal spring buried at one side, rows of crops of 槟榔叶 (betel leaves) grown by the same old farmers at … Continue reading

IMG_0357

I’ve been up to so many crazy stuff these days. Like making my idiotic right arm more horrible than it already is (I think its badly sprained), convincing my brother that a B in Math (for ‘A’ levels) means I’m incapable of helping him with his math homework, sulking over the gold dye (for highlights) … Continue reading

I’m happy to announce that I have conquered a lower fat and lower sugar version of the Cheesecake Factory’s Red Velvet Cheesecake.

What happened on New Year’s eve? . I: Watched 3 hours of Lizzie McGuire while waiting for Show Luo to magically appear on my television screen. Yes, I’m on a ‘Lizzie McGuire’ streak right now. Season 2 already, by the way. Watched a giant beetle crawl over the television screen but couldn’t pick up enough … Continue reading
