Thai Red Prawn Curry

Let's get the colors of food vibrant and exciting. Let's get going from green to red. Thai food of course specifically I am referring to (Thai Green Crab Curry & Yellow Chicken Curry). The color of their food colours obviously (Lamb Massaman Curry & Thai Vegetable Curry). The start to making? We make the curry paste (Thai Fried Chicken) and while at it, or before it or after it, prawns (Penang Mee Udang, Shrimp Pho & Hong Kong Wonton Noodle Soup) need cleaning don't forget. Thereafter, we getting cooking. Thai Red Prawn Curry. A revelation and role play of the punchy, kicking and explosion of sumptuousness. Yum.

Otaru (Sapporo - Hokkaido) - Winter Time

Day 5. Our day in Otaru which is about 45 minutes drive from Sapporo. Waking up feeling really well rested, we, yes, we totally crashed on bed early the previous night due to tiredness already catching up on us (Noboribetsu, Hokkaido & Chitose/Hokkaido). I definitely woke up looking forward to exploring Otaru. Said as must be included in your Hokkaido tour, it will be trust me and like the rest of the tour groups, I knew we will be exploring the same tourist spots. Nevertheless, I couldn't help but slide into my deep thoughts. One one side, I was sort of glad I will returning home in another two days time, on the other, I dreaded the daily grind awaiting me the moment I am home bound. Quite a dwelling matter actually, given a choice, honestly, I would love to travel 365 days, yet, the reality is that unless money fall from the sky, I need to work and I need to save before travel venturing again. Tell me about it. The reality bullet to middle income people like us. Sure. Anyway, instead of wasting more time getting worked up emotionally, I got ready and came down to the dining area for breakfast. Walla! Satisfying favourable Japanese breakfast. Bacon, eggs, Japanese porridge, soups and a cuppa of piping hot coffee for body warming me before we embarked on our journey along the Pacific Ocean to arrive in Otaru.

Malaysian Vegetarian Spaghetti

Malaysian, and Malaysian, and Malaysian (Malaysian Chettinad Mutton, Malaysian Banana Flambe & Malaysian Style Sambal Sandwich). Another Malaysian hops in today. Malaysian Vegetarian Spaghetti.  I suppose its the power of your thinking capacity for proving that any dish is possible in our Malaysian ground. Of course based on your years of cooking experiences you have garnered for reinventing recipes (Mee Siam Kuah Vegetarian, Mee Rebus Vegetarian, Vegetarian Nyonya Laksa, Vegetable Noodle Soup & Vegetarian Fried Mee Hoon)? I can actually stretch the list to the various types of vegetarian noodle dishes I have already shared as far as I want. Then again, let's just keep it brief, short and sweet. Malaysian Vegetarian Spaghetti. I don't think I need to tell you how to cook spaghetti by itself. Look at the instructions on the packet and you will do fine. For the rest, the ingredients and how to cook, you must need my recipe. Mine only for this Malaysian style sambal based spaghetti sauce in which there will be grilled tofu and peas, and atop spaghetti. Plus, of course, grated cheese is like customary for a spaghetti dish.
