Steamed Chicken with Black Fungus

Now that I'm a housewife, I will take special care in preparing food for my hubby. He is very thin, however, he has slight cholestrol problems. So, all you thin guys out there, don't think that you won't have a cholestrol problem... It's better to run some tests.

I was browsing through all the food blogs and considering what to cook. I came across one of my favourite bloggers - Lily's Wai Sek Hong and found this wonderful recipe: Country-Style Steamed Chicken.

I followed her recipe, but added more shallots and garlic as garnishing. I have also added some chilli slices and chopped spring onion.

It really tastes great! However, my hubby complained that the chicken pieces have bones... So, for my next try, I will use boneless chicken thighs.

New House - Living Room

Today marks the start of my housewife days… again… Hopefully, I can be kept busy playing with facebook, chatting and blogging :) I have been occupied tidying up the new place. Here are some of the photos I promised…

The theme of the living room is modern black and white. I love the picture of the leaning Eiffel Tower in the background.

We spent a long time seaching for a black leather sofa bed but couldn't find it. Hence, settled for a non-sofa bed.

The black bar counter is very high, to cater for 2 door refrigerator below. In order to fit an oven in the kitchen, the refrigerator has to be in the living room. And my hubby refused to put it in the open, hence, we have to put in below the bar counter.

A clearer view of the Eiffel Tower.

We have a fan in the living room. My hubby said that it can save energy if you on the fan and set the air con to be at 29 degrees at the same time.

This is our new LCD TV, and we have a "remote control" box :)

Did you see the cute white umbrella stand we have?
