I wonder how many people dah dapat temporary hearing loss this weekend from the dam dam dum bunyi mercun, hehehe.
I can still remember clearly when I was a kid, setiap tahun at Chinese New Year, we’ll be eagerly awaiting the lion dance troupe to come to our chinese neighbours’ houses.
It was such a marvellous sight watching them dance and trying to reach the angpow that they put so high up at the ledge of the roof.
But setiap kali after the lion dance had finished, setiap kali tu jugak lah my ears would be ringing non stop for a few hours and my chest felt like there was a drum beating in it, hahahaha…..
It was the loudest noise ever! (well sebelum I kenal heavy metal rock songs lah, hahaha . Tak kuasa I nak dengar heavy metal music you!).
I think they do have lion dance every year jugak kat sini but kat sekitar area Northbridge tak silap.
I thought of having a chinese new year spread for dinner tonite. Wontons and dumplings and spring rolls and roast duck and noodles and honey chicken and stir fried veges….
(verangan tak hingat, kalah restorannya menu! hikhikhik….)
But sungguh lah rasa tak laratnya plus malasnya I nak duduk berpanas lama2 kat dapur tadi so had to shelve that big dinner thoughts away, hehehe…..
So, I made roast chicken with crispy pan-fried diced potatoes and sweet potatoes, corn and salad.
Roast chicken is easy because you just have to marinate the chicken and then shove it in the oven until cooked.
The pan-fried potatoes pulak, I parboiled the whole potatoes unpeeled. Then biar sejuk and diced them up. Then spray some olive oil on them to coat. Sprinkle with rice flour+salt+ coriander powder+ paprika mixture. Pour a bit of olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Once it’s hot, cook the coated diced potatoes until brown and crispy.
The ‘black’ looking sticks in the salad is purple carrot. They are so cute looking! It tasted exactly like normal carrot but it stained your hand and fingers macam beetroot!
