BBQ Pork (Chinese Char Siu)

>> May 30, 2011




A most popular Chinese dish, well known in the East and as well as the west is Char Siu or BBQ Pork, and perhaps more popular is BBQ Pork Rice (Char Siu Fan).

I personally feel the BBQ pork pieces should have a thin layer or two of fats, moist, tender, grilled or BBQ to perfection, slightly charred with sticky juicy sweetness. Now, that is what I call Char Siu.

3-Tenors Saturday

>> May 26, 2011

I woke up to the robust tenors of Carreras-Domingo-Pavarotti! Never mind that I don’t understand a single word except, mamma mia and dolce…:-) The combo of the 3 greatest tenors filled our home from Marc’s AV station.  So sad that Pavarotti died of pancreatic cancer in 2007, and I’m one of the mourning fans. I'm glad I still have the CD.

You can also get this CD from the Ad box on the left.


Right after a quick breakfast, I felt energetic enough to punch some dough! Strange that I get this feeling each time hubby plays the 3-Tenors… and I have a suspicion hubby is trying to hint to me that he wants me to get my hands dirty and sticky…









Haha…nothing Italian or Spanish, I’m afraid…just,

>> May 21, 2011

This is one of my favourite dishes and found in many Chinese restaurants. Sometimes, it is served on sizzling hot plate. This is also a kid’s favourite, as the lightly fried tofu is fragrant and silky soft inside and the gravy goes well with hot plain rice. This is my home-cook version,

A long absence...

>> May 20, 2011

I took a leave of absence for a few months if you have noticed. 


I have just recently got back to blogging. I have stayed away from blogging, taking a break to put things into a better perspective. Actually, I found blogging a hazard…as one blogger described it. I couldn’t agree more with her.

Please don’t get me wrong… I love blogging and the net-friends around the world are just wonderful! They are supportive, encouraging, some inspirational…some are kind as to share tips.

Rita’s Basket – a new look!

>> May 19, 2011


Rita’s Basket has a new look… yeah, having settled the little guy in bed, I got to work on my blog.

I’m no expert in the blog-techno-widget stuff but I think I got a decent and simple one up. After moving this and that and here and there, reinstalling and cleaning up and updating… I was quite lost. I mean, literally, some stuff are lost. My utmost and sincerest apologies, even the FOLLOWERS are missing now. So, I’ve reinstalled and hopefully somebody ‘comes’ in… to check-in @ Google Friends Connect.

I hope I do not encounter any more technical glitches…sigh!
