Once A Year Affair...

Another two more days and Chinese New Year is here!

My last minute preparation includes painting my porch only on this very day!  I have been procrastinating or should I say... "my colleague" is the one delaying? hahaha... Gosh, hope he is not reading this post... he promised to paint my porch two weeks ago and somehow... de....lay.... till today!

My porch is still half-painted... tomorrow he will continue... imagine that.. hahaha... painting at the very last minute!  Anyway he is a very nice guy... still willing to help this old lady out...   :)

Ok, another guy is helping me out with the frying of theesseee  below! 
step one.. heat up the oil....
then throw in the dry prawn crackers...
and allow them to "expand" themselves...
Careful of the oil, Dear!!
You are semi-naked.... ouch!!
Gently drain out the oil .... 
We managed to get 4 "Jacob" tins of these prawn crackers
after standing more than an hour near the fire......
phewwww!!  Hot Work!!
Thank you so much, Dear!!
