It's an app that I recently downloaded on my iPhone because so many of my friends on facebook posted a version of themselves using Pitu. So what the heck, let's jump on the bandwagon and try it too!

Doesn't look like me, does it? My fav take is the lil' pixie there. :)

If you like anything salted egg, this is a must-try. This is sold as an expensive snack from Singapore and it retails at S$15 a pack. That's about USD11 or approx RM50. The bite-sized crispy fish skins are generously coated with salted egg. Crunchy and really yummy.

Cucumber soup

I have never thought to boil cucumber soup until my mum taught me to, just recently. It boils the same way as old cucumber soup, just minus the old cucumber and dried cuttlefish.

Cucumber is known to be a cooling vegetable but once you add meat with it (in this case, the soup), it becomes soothing and nourishing (yun).

Soup base:
Pork ribs or pork bones

2 cucumbers, deskinned and deseeded
a handful of goji seeds (gei ji)
a handful of red dates a few pieces of yuk chuk (Solomon's Seal Rhizome)
salt to taste
Optional: 1-2 pieces of dried oyster

Boil for 3 hours and wala!
