Andy N The Dinner

Andy arrived at the Sri Maju bus station around 4.15pm, I "sneaked" out to drive him back to my office, it was almost 5pm then... He then briefed me about what he should do before college reopens in January, an appeal letter is needed for the college dean to approve so that his scholarship will not be affected. This might be a blessing in disguise, through this experience, one will not take things too lightly...

Upon reaching home, I folded up my sleeves andstarted preparing dinner after I showered. I want to prove to this lady here that these are not maggots! I mean after cooking THIS TIME, they did not turn out to be like maggots... :p


before....


after...


there.... this time not maggots look-alike, eh??


stewed pork ribs with tomatoes and carrot
plus one chilipadi.. shiok!!


and something to balance up the meal
french beans with shredded carrots...


and a bowl of old melon soup...

(one mistake though.. but i m not revealing as yet..)
