Dookie Can Cook #4: Pork Meatballs with Sauce/Gravy

Today's Dookie Can Cook's dish is one of those dishes which recipes are copied out from Mina (a Japanese magazine). I've not been buying Mina for a long time now. I don't know if they still have recipes in them. If they still do, I highly recommend you guys to get Mina from the bookstores every month coz the recipes are easy to follow and the dishes created are very yummy and healthy.

My two previous Dookie Can Cook dishes are from Mina too. Here's the links to the post if you are interested:
Dookie Can Cook #2: Cauliflower x Prawns
Dookie Can Cook #3: Ginger Grill Pork Belly

And the first Dookie Can Cook which I'm very proud of is also worth checkout. So here it is...
Dookie Can Cook #1: Earl Grey Nama Chocolate

Okay let's start today's Dookie Can Cook by going through the ingredients needed for this pork meatballs.

About 200g of minced pork

Road Trip 2015: Chooi Yin's Wedding =)

On the first part of the Road Trip I've briefly talked about Chooi Yin's wedding dinner. Read about it *here*. For this part of the Road Trip, it's her wedding for the gate crashing and tea ceremony session. There are a fair bit amount of pics so I've decided to do just one post for this.

Taipei, Taiwan 2014 Day 2 Part 3: XiMenDing 西门町

This post is going to be a short one coz I didn't realize that my photos for the rest of the night of Day 2 were so little (> . >)

Anyways just a short recap for those who missed out the previous two parts of Day 2:
(click to get to linked posts)

We left MaoKong and returned to XiMenDing. Our initial plan was to head to a night market but since we were all tired from walking all day. We decided to skip that. 

We've skipped a lot of the itinerary that we've planned initially...which is bad la. Always stick to the itinerary even if you are half dead. You can sleep or rest when you get back to Malaysia. That's the traveling spirit that mum taught me but didn't follow this time round =/

In the MRT getting back to XiMenDing

CNY 2015: Chinese New Year Eve

This year's Chinese New Year is the second one I'm celebrating as a married woman. This year we are so laid back *ahem* lazy *ahem* that we didn't prepare any new notes for angpow (red packets) purpose. On CNY eve itself we panicked coz we don't have new notes to put in the angpows. Thank God we had some left from last year. Also thank God for relatives who still give us angpows. We used the new notes they gave and put it in the angpows we give out.

I have to apologize to whoever that we didn't manage to give you guys an angpow. We've been very low profile about giving out angpows, not because we didn't wanna give out. It is coz we didn't have enough new notes to give out. Next year, I promise, we will do it better.

Alright so let's talk CNY eve... or way before CNY eve...

This year I decided to get my hair done at the saloon. I usually don't do my hair at the saloon before CNY coz they are always overpriced around that time of the year. But I didn't get my hair done during the end of the year, so I had to do it.

I got a package which includes hair straightening, hair coloring, hair cut and treatment at Hair Curve. I've always like getting my hair done at Hair Curve. Probably coz I feel like Xian (my hairstylist) always know what I want and does it so nicely.

Before and After

Dookie Can Cook #3: Ginger Grill Pork Belly

It's been awhile since I last post a "Dookie Can Cook" post (>_ >) I still blame it on the Internet line. If the line didn't have any problems, my posts might be more frequent and "Dookie Can Cook" will be too.

Today's recipe is from an unknown source as usual coz I had it copied in my recipe book for a very long time. I'm guessing it's from Mina la. Coz that's where I usually copy my recipes from.

Christmas 2014 Part 2: Christmas Eve Celebration

In my previous part of the Christmas post *here*, I've told you guys that I'll be doing a separate post on Christmas Eve. This is coz there's quite a lot of pics from Christmas Eve. So here it is...

Ok let's start this!

Our church's Christmas Eve celebration actually starts in the evening. But my church friends and I have a gifts exchanging and countdown event after the church's celebration. I had to prepare the gifts and other stuff from morning itself. Thank God I was on break. Or else I have no idea how to do all these things in time.

The gifts I got for the gifts exchanging event and for my friends and babies
