First of all, I have to qualify that I did not roast the duck or meat. I bought near my house at very reasonable price of SGD16 per duck. We don’t usually have the roast duck and the most is 3-4 times a year. Today, when I passed by the store, as I am rather lazy to cook, I thought of buying some additional dishes (which is not necessary at all) and I choose roast duck. As it is near a wholesale outlet, therefore the price is only SGD16 thought one year ago, I remember it is SGD13.50 per roast duck.  Of course, for a family like us, we can’t finish. Do not want to think what to do with the leftover, I am just too tired and sure tomorrow some dish will pop up!

The chicken korma is the left over from yesterday. At last, we finished it off tonight.

The new dish is the celery omelete. Most Chinese do not like celery though the prices of celery are very cheap in Singapore. The most famous Chinese dish, in my humble opinion is celery stirred fried with macadamia nuts. Other than that, we do use it to cook soup like ABC soup etc. Another dish is celery omelette which is “invented” by my wife. Most older generations like my mother in laws, my brothers who do not expose to celery in their early years were rather reluctant to try them due to their strong smell. However, we have managed to “tone down” the strong smell and now they are able to accept celery cooked in this manner. You can refer to Guaishushu’s Facebook Page for the cooking illustration by following the links above.

Besides cooking the above, I have baked some roast meat buns and sausage buns and I will share with readers the recipe in a day or two.

I have also prepare another cake of which I have yet to think of the name. This cake is purely out of my own imagination by putting 250 g of butter, 200 g of cream cheese, 50 g of yoghurt, 200 g of shredded coconut…….. It is a very rich cake.. Can any readers help me to think of a name.

Cheers and good night! Oh, it is another day.. haha
