Cool Cucumber For Hot Hot Day!

Weather is so hot these days... it is always like that when it comes to Chinese New Year...
I bought a cucumber and some tomatoes, wondering what to do with them... and eventually ended up cooking the following....

my ingredients... minced meat, 2 tomatoes,
one cucumber, 2 green chillies, one red chilly, dried prawns

cooling cucumber with dried prawns and one red chilly

my girl and I finished these up for dinner!!

both of us were wishing some
egg tarts as desserts after dinner...
yummy!!

  3. I don't like cucumber cooked. Loses its "cool" taste. Would rather eat it raw...maybe with mayo or salad dressing...or ulam with sambal hay bee.

  4. That's Choy Kee's egg tart! I can recognise their tarts with just one look. The crust always looks paler compared to others. In fact, Choy Kee's egg tarts are available in many places because they supply pastries to quite a number of major coffee shops.
