Dear all,
Tested in Choc’s kitchen tonight. It’s edible. I copied this recipe from a cooking book titled ‘Cooking for One’. I have modified it slightly to make sure that NO bits get wasted!.

1 onion (sliced)
1 lemon
1 bunch of Thai Basil Leaves
****
1 tbm fish sauce
1 small tomato (diced)
1-2 cloves garlic (chopped)
1 small chilli (seeded, thinly sliced)
350 gr chicken mince

Cara:
1. Put 1 tbm of fish sauce & 1 tbm of lemon juice together with diced tomato, mix them well.

2. Marinate chicken mince with salt, sugar & pepper for 10 mins

3. Fry garlic,chilli & half of the sliced onion for 1 min, add chicken & cook till lightly browned, add fish sauce mixture in, let it cook till the tomato is soft. Add half a bunch of Basil last.

Now what to do with the leftover onion, lemon & basil leaves? Cook the same dish the next day (change chicken to kangaroo or rabbit mince if you wish..)

Love
Choc

Looks very tasty - I tell you what would be really sxy with with it - some small cubes of egg plant sautied at the same time as the garlic is fried .

Is "cooking for one" a euphemism for "I'm a sad bastard" ? I can't believe that you could be on your own -

i don't know what you're worried about. capricorns don't believe in this astrology shit in any case.

and, btw, nice post. at last a recipe simple enough for me to try myself! good photo too!

Poor girl wants nourishment , not punishment, she is fed up , not hard up . What on earth would she want with a lumbering oik like you when she can get a new improved gazelle like captain who is now like a greek god as a result of his daily mlaku-mlaku on his sepeda , and also as a result of chasing a gurt big tokeh who has decided that my mini is his new home.

Greek God compared to great big dumpling - she knows it makes sense.

With the addition of egg plant it becomes superlative and is very refreshing.

I kept receiving letters from the people who do those cervical test thingies - I'm sure someone is running a smear campaign against me.

Hey how do you know?! that's so true, we're non believers! (ironic huh)

Btw thx for the astro-reading, i'm going to apply I-ching Divination on it for a life long guidance.

Guy in bed with his wife .

Gives her a little kiss on the lips , kisses her breasts , sticks his tongue in her belly button , licks her thighs , then kisses her knees .

She looks at him and says "you wouldn't have missed it if it had been the bloody pub"

Anyway ,I agree , I do lots of lavishing.

Wrong address Capt.. you're too old to have any tests done on you (even pap smear), my advice? just rest in peace gitu loh.

Bloody cheek - I'm in my Prime Miss Brody - you should have seen me last night - prancing around like a kuda jantan , my manhood proudly jutting forth in the moonlight - muscles rippling all over my stomach - a wonderful sight to behold .

I've heard all this before - dusky Indonesian maidens laughing at the more mature and refined bule , then I get them into the back of my little mini and they realise just what they have been missing .

You get in the back of my Mini , and you will change your view on what "nothing" is , especially when you get poked in the eye with it.
