Did you play HKO? Enjoy?
My lovely cat was falling down from the cabinet last night when he was sleeping.
I think he is just too fat…
I love Hello Kitty Online, cant stop playing!
I like to play the games…
This is a nice sea food pasta made with olive oil sauce.
Ingredients (serve 2)
- 12 King prawns
- 400 g (14 oz) conchiglie pasta shells
- 300 ml (10 fl. oz) olive oil (dont worry, it wont be too oily even it looks much oil to use)
- olive oil for frying
- 1 ripe plum tomato, chopped
- 12 vine cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/4 bulb of fennel, roughly chopped (skipped)
- 1 tbsp fresh chives, coarsely chopped (skipped)
- 1 tbsp fresh tarragon, coarsely chopped (skipped)
- 1 tbsp fresh chervil, coarsely chopped (skipped)
- 1 red chilli, finely chopped (skipped)
- 1/2 fresh onion, roughly chopped (I added it by myself)
- 1 tbsp cayenne pepper powder (I added myself)
- 1 tbsp dill herbs (I added myself)
1. Preheat the oven to 140°C/275°F/Gas mark 1. (skipped)
2. Peel the prawns and remove the heads, but do not discard them. Then butterfly the prawns by cutting vertically along the spines. Clean out the brown waste.
3. Season the vine tomatoes, then put them on a baking tray and into the oven for up to 1 1/2 hours until dried. (I did not use oven, just pan-fried)
4. Heat a little olive oil in a pan and fry the heads and shells of the prawns. A red colour will seep from the shells.
5. Add the plum tomato, fennel and olive oil and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and crush the shells and heads into the oil with a potato masher.
6. Leave the mixture to infuse in a warm area in the kitchen for 20 minutes.
7. Strain the oil through a conical strainer/sieve. The sediment should come through but not the bits of shell. You‘ll be left with a delicious shellfood oil, which can be stored in a lidded jar in the fridge and used over the next couple of days.
8. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet, drain and add 4–6 tbsp of the shellfish oil.
9. Fry the prawns lightly in a little olive oil for 2 minutes, until fully (but not over-) cooked.
10. Add the prawns, oven-dried tomatoes, chervil, tarragon and chives to the pasta. Finally, add the chilli and serve immediately.
Although I had skipped some ingredients but it’s still very delicious! And you can try the original recipe if you want.
Got a chance to go to Malaysia and Singapore a week ago.
I thought all Malaysian and Singaporean food are with coconut milk and as I hate that so really a bit difficult for me to decide to go there. But in fact that’s not very right. Not so many foods with coconut milk or even it does but not so strong as I expected.
Remembered there was a self-pay dinner in the trip. In fact we had a very good and nice seafood dinner but was western food. Unfortunately we managed the time really bad and it’s too rush. It’s so bad that we forgot to take the photo of the food. :_: What a pitty was I got a very serious stomach-ache whole night.
The other day we went to Malaka, even I was quite full but still think we must tried some local food no matter what. So we went to a local night market and had a the Laksa noodles.
In Hong Kong it can cost for more than HK$40 each but guess how much does it cost in Malaysia? And of course the taste is much much much more delious. Also, want to specially mention about the drinks. The black one is coffee-0, do you know what is coffee-0? Such a funny name……
We only had half day in Singapore so dont have too much to talk about it. But we at least had the most famous dish in Singapore - Hai Nam Chicken Rice.
To be honest, I dont find the chicken very special even many people said the chicken is very fresh and slim. But….. the rice is really good. It’s chicken oil rice but not oily. Remmebered I had one in HK before and I was so sick for it, my stomach was nearly dead. The doctor told me because I ate something too oily. So when I had the rice in Singapore, I was so surprise the rice is so good…..
I have two cats at home. They are so different, one is very big and one is very small.
Her name is “Winter”or “Tung Tung”. She is almost 5 year old and size is very big so my family always call her “Sister Tung”. But even though her size is big but she is very shame. we just used the same name when we got her from her ex-owner, but it’s good as she joint our family in CNY so is winter…..
The other one is “Little Monster”. She is already two-year old but size is very small, just look like a kitty around 6-months old. She looks even small when we first got her but she is growing bigger and bigger now. We call her “Little Monster” is just because she is very naughty, always make dirt outside “her” toilet. Tried many different methods but sometimes she is still doing it. @_@
Anyone have suggestions how to teach “Little Monster”?
