From our previous post, we lad left over lettuce, corn, and tomato. I also accidentally bought a can of cream style corn, only to find out it wasn't kernel corn after I opened the can!!! So I decided to use it for tonight dinner. So tonight, we only had to go get chicken breasts and mozzarella cheese!

NY Bistro

When you live on the HK island, you become an island snob, and that is what I have become. Although TST is not that far, the thought of crossing the harbour just seems a long way to go. Tonight, I decided to go to TST where my friend CD works, and we did a bit of shopping and eating. I had a great evening, I love spending quality girl time with my girlfriends :) CD took me to 798 Unit & co and French Dap for desserts!

Remake from Left Overs #5

Remake from last night's chicken curry!


Green Curry Pasta

(The white stuff is cottage cheese)

South East Asian Night

I think I put too much coconut milk so my Indonesian Chicken Curry looks like Thai Green Curry instead!!! AND... I was suppose to make Paneer Makhanwala but I got the wrong cottage cheese, so I put in pork I had in my freezer, only to realize pork isn't too popular amongst Indians...? Oh well.

Paper Anniversary

WARNING: It may get just a tiny little bit mushy, but don't mind me.

Did you know that wedding anniversaries have special names? Check it Here if you want to find out more.

Tonight, CM and I celebrated our "Paper Anniversary" because we went and signed our "Papers" on the same day last year. Although our real "Paper" Anniversary will be in a few weeks time, it's always nice to do something special. CM asked what I wanted to do, but I just told him to give me a surprise and he did such a good job! I was so impressed and so happy :D

CM knows that we're starting to look into opening a cafe sometimes in the future together with Elim Christian Bookstore. This has been my dream and vision since highschool (to open a cafe next to our bookstore) and after speaking to one of our head people here, it's also their vision that God has given them. Nothing is confirmed yet, but it's still exciting. Anyway, CM took me to this restaurant in Stanley opened by this lady 12 years ago, and on their 10 year anniversary, she published her own cooking book. So CM got the waitress to put the cooking book on the table that he reserved and gave it to me for our "Paper" anniversary. I'm really blessed to have such a wonderful husband.

Here are pictures of food, the picture came out really dark so I had to edit it on photoshop. The quality and colour is not good, but I hope you enjoy anyhow :)

Welcome to Lucy's.

Japanese Rice and Etc.

Seems like I've been posting pictures of outside rather than our home cooked meal so here you go! My friends came over for MJ so I cooked! Enjoy.


Japanese Chirashi Rice (Sushi Rice W/ Toppings)


Tofu Steak (again)


Mixed Salad (Lettuce, Tuna, Corn, and Cherry Tomato)


Chicken Wing by RJ (My sister)

I really like this Tofu Steak... If you like tofu, definately try this recipe I posted on the July 20th entry. I suggest you cut it up like the one above, it's easier to flip when you're frying. The way I cut it up for the previous one was a bit flimsy and easy to break apart.
