Hmm so what have I been up to lately? Well we’ve properly moved into the house now and started to get things tidied up, we’ve got curtains in – my study is in a reasonable state (I have a desk and some kind of organization system for all my mess).
We’ve definitely spent the most money, time and energy on the kitchen – that includes kitchen gadgets, containers, utensils, a console table, spices, food, condiments and the list goes on. It’s paid off though as Kim has been cooking up a storm and I’ve made a few things too.
Here are some of my favourite dinners so far:
Pan-fried Dory with garlic flowers and creamy layered potatoes.
Grilled pork steaks with mashed potatoe and Chinese vege.
Absolutely amazing pork meatballs pasta.
Home made beef burger patties with home baked burger buns!
Other than cooking daily dinner she’s also been baking up a storm with delicious treats like this Chocolate layer buttermilk cake!
One of my all time favourite desserts, tart tatin!
And the evil but awesome chocolate & beer cake with peanut butter frosting!
I’ve had a few goes too, I made a lasagna and garlic bread – which was apparently very good. I’ll share the recipe on Kim’s blog soon. I also made a few things I love, the main one being Flapjacks 😀
Hmm, ok obviously I’ve been doing a LOT of eating – but what else have I been up to? I’ve started a new category on my blog called Alcoholic Frolic – dedicated to booze. Why? Because I love booze hahaha. I will be writing about mostly beers and whiskys because those are my favourite things. In that vein, I recently went to the launch of a new (very strong 6.7%ABV) beer in KL called Grimbergen.
I also went to Johnnie Walker Black Circuit 2011 – which was an absolutely amazing party! Kim wrote about it here – Johnnie Walker Black Circuit Lounge 2011. I may well write about it soon too 😉
Also since the renovation and buying stuff has settled down, took a break from being broke..it’s been tough spending next to nothing for the past 2 years so we’ve been on a bit of a shopping spree! Finally! Got myself 2 cool new pairs of shoes (1 Onitsuka Tiger & 1 limited edition Puma GP).
Bought a bunch of clothes online too, my haul from the recent Threadless sale just arrived today. Happy to report XL fits me perfectly, I just hope it doesn’t shrink in the wash 😀
Also got myself some knives, for fucks – just because I like knifes 🙂 1 Spyderco Tenacious G10, 1 Kershaw Ken Onion Leek, and 1 Underwater Kinetics Blue Tang Titanium Dive Knife 😉
Yes that’s a dive knife, so hopefully I’ll start diving again this year 🙂
That’s all for now!
