Oyakodon ~ 親子丼

Oyakodon (親子丼, Oyakodon)...
literally "parent-and-child donburi", is a donburi, or Japanese rice bowl dish, in which chicken, egg, green onion, and other ingredients are all simmered together in a sauce and then served on top of a large bowl of rice. The name of the dish, parent and child donburi, is a poetic reflection of the fact that both chicken and egg are used in the dish. In Japan, oyakodon is often served in soba restaurants and other traditional Japanese restaurants.

The donburi simmering sauce varies according to season, ingredient, region, and taste. A typical sauce might consist of dashi flavored with shoyu and mirin. Proportions vary, but usually there is three to four times as much dashi as shoyu and mirin. For oyakodon, Tsuji (1980) recommends dashi flavored with light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, and sugar.

*Oyakodon - picture credit 私たちは秋田が世界に誇る

To make oyakodon, cut chicken and other ingredients into bite-sized pieces. Heat 1/4 cup simmering sauce in a small frying pan. Add chicken (and sliced yellow onion, if desired) and simmer until chicken is cooked. Then add green onions and other ingredients. When all ingredients are cooked, slowly pour 1-2 lightly beaten eggs evenly over the whole dish. When eggs are nearly cooked (edges set), slide the topping from the pan onto hot cooked rice served in an oversized bowl. The hot rice will finish cooking the eggs.

Several other Japanese dishes pun on the parent-and-child theme of oyakodon.
Tanindon (他人丼, Tanindon), literally "stranger bowl", is otherwise identical but replaces the chicken with beef.
A dish of salmon and roe served raw over rice is known as sake oyakodon (鮭親子丼, sake oyakodon).

Seriously Sinfull Part II

Recommended by Putu - New York New York

I went to check out the newly open extention of Jurong Point near Boon Lay Station.
It was SERIOUSLY HUGE! and guess what? They offer a challenge too!

If u can finish the whole thing all by yourself within an hour - the burger is FREE, they wil take it out off your bill hahahh ...but I dare not hahah

take a look at the burger yourself, i coudn't believe my eyes when i saw the plate ...

lucky thing they served it with LOTS of fries too hehehe

do u get what i mean when i say ITS FREAKING HUGE!?!?!?!

But all in all, it wasnt really a satisfying meal; the burger was over loaded with chopped onions (made me fart all night, damn it! ) Bread was not done properly too, and not enough vege in the burger... for $32.90 i rate as BELOW AVERAGE ...

Well, in order to agree with me, u just gotta try it yourself! and then u tell me wat u think ...

Lastly we feel like having dessert too that night but then couldnt decide wat to have. The waitress recommended Muddy Mudpie ( which i thought would be like typical english mudpie, forgetting that this is an ALL AMERICAN restaurant...)

It looks ok, but sure didnt taste anything like a mudpie~!~~!!! NO WHERE NEAR!!! It was sort of like some chocolate moist on a pasrty base, topped with lots and lots of chocolate fudge, and with a scoop of ice cream on top ... (i -scream , man ... when i saw thing coming i just don feel like touching it~! )

But in the end, in order not to waste food, we finished the whole thing too hehehehe

Sinful ! SINFUL!!! SUPER SINFUL !!!!

But i must say - Mei Mei baked better chocolate moist than these buggers! hahahah

his elbow goes into her breast.

They are both quite startled.

I know you'll forgive me.'
She replies, 'If your penis is as hard as your elbow, I'm in room 221.'

Third Place :

'Do you have a dentist appointment tomorrow too?'

Runner Up:

to confess to his wife that he had a terrible compulsion.

He had an urge to stick his penis into the pickle slicer.

One day a few weeks later, Bill came home and his wife co uld see at once that something was seriously wrong.
'What's wrong, Bill?' she asked.

'Do you remember that I told you how I had this tremendous urge to put my penis into the pickle slicer?'
'Oh, Bill, you didn't' she exclaimed.

'Well,' Granny snickered. 'Let's relive some old times.'

Still waiting ...

I really cant take it anymore...


Well, as some of u may know I used to have a Samsung F480 ( yeah the one I craved for and got it finally ) But I have sold it off to an interested buyer for a good price. I m not complaining about the phone, just that even though with 5.0mp cam, the photos just aint right comparing to Sony Ericsson phones (ok I shouldnt have compared the photos ) But anway, I reason of selling off that phone is because there isnt much to play with on the phone.

...Some may say, " well, its a phone not a toy..."

True! I totally agree but I feel that the phone should just do more than just calling and texting. In my case, its gotta be like a portable entertainment unit for ;
  • providing music;
  • games;
  • movies;
  • info centre ...
  • etc etc ...

And so, F480 is history and next in line would be iPhone
Singtel is currently running an offer, $100 off 16gb iPhone! Which after selecting the call plans I wanted and final price comes up to be about $308 with $100 worth of trade-in.

NOT A BAD OFFER after all ... !!!!

I soooooooo wanted to sign up for one NOW but then after consulting Aaron, he still thinks that I should wait ... (but how long more... ?????) as he made a few phone calls to his contacts and hopefully he will bring me good news ... b4 xmas (prefferably ...)

till then I got to keep my cool and wait...

Shall I wait ??? or Shall i just get it now ???
....ahh..... f.c.u.k. it~

What does it mean?

Until today, I still wonder why was i named Wendy.
I was told that when I was young, I claimed that I loved Peter Pan cos he can fly. If I were to be his love, he will fly me any where I want. At that time, I told my grandma who lives in Singapore, " Like that I can fly to see u anytime I want ma..."

At the point of time, cute lil Wendy me, didn't know Peter Pan only exist in fairy tales, to be precise- in Never Never Land ONLY ( i know... naive, right?)

I guess that was the reason why I was named - Wendy.
Lets do some history checking on names...


Gender: Feminine

Usage: English

Pronounced: WEN-dee [key]

Probably first used in J. M. Barrie's play 'Peter Pan' (1904). It was from the nickname fwendy "friend", given to the author by a young friend. However, there is some evidence that the name may have been used prior to the play, in which case it could be related to the Welsh name GWENDOLEN and other names beginning with the element gwen meaning "white, fair, blessed".

Ok, which means I could call myself Gwen?!?
Cool ...


Gender: Feminine

Usage: Welsh

Pronounced: GWEN-də-lin (English) [key]

Means "white ring", derived from the Welsh elements gwen "white, fair, blessed" and dolen "ring". This was the name of a mythical queen of the Britons who defeated her husband in battle, as told by Geoffrey of Monmouth.

A message from some one i know...

i was having a chat with a friend, known for a very long time
after a while my friend just tells me this ...

"When you fall, in any way, Don't see the place where you fell, Instead see the place from where you slipped"
it got me thinking for days about it. I agree, we shouldn't look at where we fell, but which silly spot that we slipped that made us fall!
