first house dinner=)


after 2 months of moving in to our new house, i finally had a dinner with my housemates. we decided to head for... Chinese food!!! I wasn't too sure about introducing authentic chinese food to the sweet and sour pork loving brits, but when i saw how kev's jitsu mates licked up their plates at his celebration dinner ( kev got a bronze in the national jitsu competition!!!) , i thought, hmm maybe their tolerance level isnt as bad as i thought.
Steph and Vitty ( landlord's daughter who lives with us). we're the bbq lamb musketeers!
food was good=)i love the bbq lamb, and the Dong Po pork trotters, and the aromatic duck , and the,.....we were saying that the difference between english soup and chinese soup is, english soup is so thick that it is opague, u cant see through it. wherelse chinese soup is like clear water, no hidden surprise XD
there was this Ants on Tree dish蚂蚁上树, which is basically vercmilli noodles fried with minced pork. one of them went ' where are the ants??? aww i am so disappointed'
and then we went home to set up a christmas tree!!! albeit without the ornaments and led lights coz Vitty's parents took them back home. just have to wait till when they next come around=)

my first proper English roast dinner

...by Kev's best mate, Tom who makes his own bread from scratch ( yes yeast and flour )

think malaysia, think nasi lemak, think italy , think pizza, thin japan, think sushi. but think england? blank. i wouldnt call dunking a battered fish into hot oil (fish and chips) as something representative. then my british flatmate told me, the british homecooked food are usually served at home, u cant find them in restaurants, one of the typical english food is Sunday Roast. basically, just boil all the veggies, then coat everything in olive oil, and dribble more olive oil every now and then onto the veggie while roasting them. the veggie would end up crispy on the outside and soft in the inside.
lamb with mint sauce is absolutely divine~

the portion was MASSIVE
a close up
and potato skins made by me~~~didnt taste as nice as it looks*ahem* looks can be deceiving=p
i was rendered useless in the kitchen, so end up being the dishwasher><
