    Kitchen Class

    Omgoodness, my phone camera is starting to fail me.. Many taken pictures ended up blur... =(

    Heck, that is not gona stop me from blogging anyway.

    Todays kitchen class was a really tiring and confusing one,

    Chef Tan(my lecturer) kept skip and jump from one topic to another.

    As I was looking back at the pictures that I took,

    I wanted to categorize the cooking proses, only to know that I cant remember as to which one is which.

    Not to mention forgetting all the English terms given, what more the French names...

    Jeff, David, Chris, Me

    Anyway, the 1st thing I learned was "raping dressing the chicken".

    In this proses, our hands would "molest" parts of chicken that we don't normally would do.

    Such as...

    The chicken ass.

    Besides touching touching, the main objective is to bind the chicken up using a needle and strings.

    Something like that..

    Not to mention, we got to clear out some unwanted stuff such as fats, bones, the neck and etc..

    The end result.

    Not bad for a 1st timer. =)

    Some other preparation pictures.

    'Bathing' the chicken


    We also learn how to cut chicken into different pieces.

    Getting ready to make various types of potato dishes.

    Chef Tan

    Making mash potato

    He asked us to 'sau-te' some of the potato, this is what it suppose to look like.

    And this was what happen when I try to 'sau-te' my potato.


    Now, making tomato sauce.

    At the end of it.

    Orientation Dinner Night

    So sorry people! I cant write much about this, due to lack of pictures.

    I don't know how to explain this phenomena, but meee~ Does not feel like taking pictures! Something is not right... =(

    Maybe its my shit hair la, stupid stylist cut till made me looked like a baboon, spoil my day! =(

    No wonder the phrase 'bad hair day' exist, now I believe it.

    Tell me la, do you see a difference?!?! Other then the color...

    Let me just sum up the night in few lines.

    Food - Too many people, food finish too fast, therefore I R hungry...

    Performance - I only like the part where the student council cross dress and dance, it was so freaking funny. As for the others, nothing special/new.

    Crowd - Not much people participate. According to ace, this time round lesser people.

    Tell you guys something funny la, as some of you know,

    I got a humble Olympus camera which served me well up to this point of time.

    I know quite a number of people bring along their cam on the night,

    And normally ladies would bring their small slim camera to keep in their begs,

    Like these..

    BUT what I did not expect is the type of camera that Clarissa brought.

    Not this camera, but these type.
    *Illustration purpose only*

    =O A big fat SLR camera!

    It kicked my humble little Olympus camera so hard, I hid it inside my pocket for the entire night.

    Damn! I wan my SLR camera too! =/

    Anyway, here are the few pictures I manage to take during the night. =)

    Me and the half Korean - Asher from Subang

    Musa from Swaziland Africa

    Samantha and Aaron a.k.a ace(sorry dude, got the 'red eye effect' on picture)

    Last but not least, my favorite picture~


    The court jester baboon and the fairy princess - Clarissa

    A Taste Of French Fine Dining

    Whats On My Mind:

    Me: So your staying at Metari Court, under Taylors?
    Mardiana: Yeah, but not under Taylors.
    Me: Owh, then you must be renting a room with friends..
    Mardiana: No, my parents bought one of the house for me.
    Me: !!!

    Imagine your walking into a fine ambiance restaurant, listening to French music, after a day of tiring class, with few friends plus a pretty girl/handsome guy(if you prefer) serving you some more.

    It all started out when Jeff received an SMS from his friend.

    "Monday want to be my friend's guest? Its a pretty girl.. Find at less 2 of your friends to go along ok?"

    That how David and I got into the scene to so call "save" Jeff's friend from being screwed by her lecturer for not having any friends to be turned into guest.

    Seniors preparing for the dinner service..
    I ate at the other restaurant, not this one..

    7:30pm, moment of truth, we walked into the restaurant Jeff was worried whether that 'pretty girl' is pretty or not therefore he wants me to do the talking.

    Waiter: "Yes, your server is?"
    Me: "Err.. Is Constance here?"
    Waiter: *Showing some hand signals towards the group of waiters*

    A girl with fair skin walked towards us. "Yes this was please." *Warm smile*

    Our table. The long cloth thing is a lap napkin.

    And you think French fine dining is only all about the food?

    If you do, your wrong! Take a look at this, you need to use the right tool for the right meal.

    Even the glass also got separation, for example for water and wine, both uses the different glass wan, don't play play...

    As some of you might know, in a Chinese restaurant, they serve peanuts before your meal comes.

    French style other wise.

    Eating this bun also need skill.. just to cut the bread into half so that you can put butter in also got problem...

    I don't know leh its the bread hard or the knife blunt, but I still manage to put some butter in anyway...

    Constance told us there are few type of drinks we could call as side order, and we decided to try 'pink guava',

    David who does not know what the heck is that, just told her to make it triple, only to regret it later.

    RM 3 per glass... And it taste not good... =/

    The starter came after some time.

    If you love cheese, this would make you droll..

    Can you feel its cheesiness? yummmm.... Such aroma... Say "ahhh"...

    I don't know how the heck they make it, I asked Constance only to get an answer that I can never digest.

    Me, someone who HATES cheese(except on pizza and burger), manage to finish this thing.

    As some of you who knows me, will be familiar that I cant finish anything with cheese on it,

    I would then throw the food away, including BLUEBERRY CHEESE CAKE!

    The host - Jeff

    Full time Vietnamese, 2 years Singaporean - David

    Opening a bottle of tap water "white wine".

    The star dish of the night which we were waiting for since the ice age, finally arrived!

    Some sea food cuisine.. So small portion but took freaking long to prepare...

    But very nice loh... =)

    Wan a bit? =D

    It took us less then 8 min to finish the entire plate.

    I not sure about this, I think its French style(one of it) to prepare the desert in front of the guest.

    Our pancake made with sugar, orange juice,
    some sweet stuff and rum(for the fire effect).

    They pour sugar like water lo...

    Now I know why Johor state is short of sugar...

    The fire effect that I was talking about.

    The final product.

    Super sweet, does not suit my state, but for those who loves sweet stuff, it will be great if you ever get to try.

    A cup of espresso for the finish, and off we go. -9:30pm-

    Last but not less.

    Thanks Constance for your hospitality, its been great meeting you, if got chance I'll invite you for our serving ok? =)

    Cheers people!

    So now, who wants to get invite for my serving? =P
