Yay! So flattered to be tagged by the Chef and Sommelier! His is a great blog with wonderful recipes and gorgeous photos. Wish I can cook, plate and snap like him!
Cooking or Blogging?
I am actually a backseat cook or you can call me an armchair cook. Grown up in a family of fabulous cooks, I spend a large part of my time at home looking at the others cook. I am great at giving instructions on what and how to cook. Say I am a show-off if you must but I have this amazing ability to predict how ingredients can combine to make a great dish! I never rely on recipes but dishes I "cooked" verbally never ever fail!
Your favourite Chef/Restaurant?
This is a difficult question because my faves come in phases. An all-time fave will be Ember@Keong Saik but recently I got super addicted to Teppei's omakase meals.
Three favourite ingredients?
Maldon salt, fresh herbs of all sorts, Shaoxing wine.
Three ingredients that you would avoid?
Artificial colourings/flavourings, palm oil and ketchup. In my world, sweet and sour pork should always be done with sugar and vinegar.
Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner?
All three. As long as they are eaten at the right time, in the the right place, with the right food and amongst the right company. Pet peeve these days is eateries that serve breakfast at all times.
Coffee or Tea?
Doesn't seem to reflect on this blog but really it's TEA.
Cakes or Cookies?
Cakes for a practical reason. I need to yell a lot at work and cookies give me a bad throat.
Butter or Olive Oil?
Red or White (Wine)?
Which three famous individuals would you invite to dinner (dead or alive)?
Margaret Thatcher, Mahathir Mohamad and Deng Xiaoping. Am crazily interested in political leaders. Again, not seen in this blog. Would love to ask them many questions.
If you were to have your last meal, what would it be?
My mum's chicken rice. Extra skin please.
