Omurice !?

I want to eat omurice (オムライス) !!! Haven't had that in a while.. Seriously ! The last time I had it was when I was in Tokyo, Japan. Now I am trying to find a restaurant which serves omurice in Hong Kong. Looking online now to see if there are any.. There should be, but I just need to look hard for it.

Oh.. Why the sudden urge to eat omurice? Hehe~ I am currently watching this JDrama which is about demiglance sauce, omurice, etc.. It's called
ランチの女王 ; ) Watch it !

Portuguese Egg Tart (葡撻)

This has to be one of the best street food on Earth.. Seriously! This is a similar pastry to the Hong Kong-style egg tarts; the main difference is the caramalised top of the Portuguese-style egg tart. Portuguese-style egg tarts (葡撻) were actually evolved from a traditional Portuguese pastry called "pastel de nata" (a type of custard pastry). They are available at a number of bakeries (i.e. Door Door bakery in Hong Kong) as well as in Macau-style restaurants. Great as a tea-time snack, as well as an after-meal dessert, you can never get enough of this delicacy.

Summer is finally here!!!

There is still loads of time till the start of the next academic year, so it is time to brush-up my cooking skills and learn my mom's recipes back home. I have been waiting from the start of the year for this! There is so much to learn and hope I can pick up as much as I can before I go back to London. I don't know how this new passion for cooking ignited, but I am enjoying every moment of it: from learning new knife skills to learning about the ingredients. To enjoy learning something, you will need to be interested in it.. get involve with it. Interactive learning is very important I believe: that's where all the fun is! Therefore I will make an effort to join my mom or aunt in the kitchen whenever they are making or preparing something.

Okay! I will keep you people updated later! Learning to cook something new now! Ttyl!
