Poached salmon in your dishwasher

Ever wonder what else you can do with your dishwasher? Besides washing dishes that is. Bob Blumer posts his recipe for dishwasher salmon with a piquant dill sauce.

Poaching fish in the dishwasher is a virtually foolproof way to shock your friends, prepare a succulent meal and do the dishes — all at the same time. I’ve poached salmon in more than 100 dishwashers on three continents. There’s never been a dull party.

McDonalds reaches out via bloggers

Ted Murphy runs a company called PayPerPost, which enables advertisers to post ads on blogs. His company had recently signed an agreement with McDonalds to help spread the word on healthy eating and also get bloggers to donate their earnings to (RMHC) Ronald McDonald House Charities.

They had pledged 5 million to this project. Bloggers who take up this task will not be earning anything but their work will be contributed to designated charities.

What a great way to spend their money. It’s killing 2 birds with 1 stone.

Amsterdam city trip guide

Amsterdam is a great place to visit if you’re in Europe. I like to do my trip reports very late. It brings back sweet memories and I’m sure I will visit the city again cos I’m not done with it yet.

If you travel by plane, Schiphol airport will be the first sight you’ll see when you land. Schiphol has been voted the best airport in the world several times. Seriously, our KLIA beats the shit outta this airport sizewise but it’s clean and tidy. You can either take a taxi or fast train to Centraal Station. I took the fast train which is obviously fast and super smooth.

What bong do you want?

Me and my mate went to a foodcourt to have Curry Fish Head. Because there were many stalls, we called up a friend to identify the stall owners name. We found 2 stalls with the same name. One was operated by 2 Indonesian woman and the other was empty. These are Chinese style curry fish head stalls.

I wasn’t too happy with the fact that the owner left the stall under the hands of his 2 Indonesian maids. It’s a sign of crappy quality food.

We then saw Bong Cafe and decided it’s best to get a drink from them and which stall is owned by Ah Chun (owner). The girl from Bong Cafe was busy SMSing while my friend franticly waved his hand for attention. After about 1 minute of waving, someone saw us and started shouting at the SMSing girl.

She came for orders and we asked the ever important question. “Hey … which one is Ah Chun’s stall?”

“Both stalls are his. Same owner” she replied.

I made a mistake not asking her if the curry was superb. My friend went ahead and ordered from the 2 Indonesian maids.

Bong Cafe

As we waited for our curry, I can’t help thinking how the owner named his shop BONG. Was he having 19 cones on his bong when he was cracking his head for a name? Or did it just hit him … BONG! Ok I’ll name it BONG. Nevermind.

The sight of the curry did not impress me. It looked watery and tastes like curry soup. Very diluted and totally failed the high standards of our tastebuds. I often argue with Andrew, 95% of Chinese style curry are plain crap.

For top notch South Indian type curries, head to Tajjudin Hussein in Little India. The curry is so good you can drink it like soup non stop. Hrrm … I need to head there today for my fix.

Bad Lunch

I just had the worst lunch ever. Being a sucker for new places, I dropped by a chinese restaurant for lunch.

I ordered “Roast Chicken & Roast Duck Noodles” and I was given “Roast Pork & Roast Duck Noodles” instead.

I didn’t complain but I think they noticed their mistake. Both the ladies were looking at me and mumbling something. They were definately talking about me because I was the only one in the shop at that time. Both the customers before me must had cursed in silence and left.

Tastewise … fail … service … fail … chilli sauce … fail. The only thing that appeared normal was the chinese tea. The noodles tastes like the one who made it had a bad day.

Well … too bad. This will be my first and last time there.

Giant Ant

Cola Ant
I found a giant ant in my room earlier. Okay … it’s a larger than normal ant. I’ve personally seen ants the size of my thumb while hiking in the jungle.

So here’s a photo of a local Cola flavored candy. It was hard to get a sharp picture because the ant can’t stop moving. Lighting and me was poor and lazy.

For your information, I threw the ant outdoors after taking the shots. I’ve tasted ants before. They taste like tiny bits of wasabi. I’m not joking. Try them out yourself :) And NO I did not eat this one :P
