A Reunion Meal On Raya Eve..

AAron reached IPOH around 8am, he was very tired, his fren started the journey from KL around 5am and the night before, Aaron dint sleep much. During the journey, he didnt dare to doze off too, keeping his fren company while he drove. Upon reaching IPOH, both of us went for breakfast and I quickly dropped him back home to zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

And I? To market I went and bought some stuff to cook for dinner... NO lunch for all of us, Andy had his own program with "u-know-who" no point cooking for lunch. So what did I cook? These......

Melon soup ( i havent boil this melon with chicken before)
I added in red dates, yuk chuk, kei chee...

bought a kampong chicken
and sauteed it with oyster sauce
black sauce, light sauce and honey...
