Birthday Wishlist

It's my birthday tomorrow!

I have been putting off making a birthday wishlist coz I won't be getting any gifts anyway. I'm too old for that. I don't think I'll even be getting a gift from my hubby.

But I thought, I'd still push through with this post so when I look back on this next year, I'll see what I wanted and maybe compare to future wishlists.


1.) an iPhone 4/4S.
•why not a 5? Because the 4 is enough.

2.) a pink retractable optical mouse.
•since I bought my mom's pink laptop. I had bought 2 mouses ( that had died on me,yes, both of them.

3.) 32gig sd card.
•for my tab. Bought 16g. But 32 is better haha!

4.) a lipstick.
•preferably the color in the picture

I guess that's it. I don't really want a lot. I'm sure I'm not gonna get any of them. I am actually happy with lunch and then wine at night. Which is what we are doing.

Advance happy birthday to me!

Ciao for now!

Crispy Fried Chicken

First post to my "Kitchen Diaries" page.

I've decided to document my kitchen adventures because I am not so good at it haha! And I kinda want to see my progress.

So I've made my Crispy Fried Chicken also known as Everyone's favorite.

Chicken Drumsticks
Rock Salt
All-Purpose Flour
Garlic Powder
Iodized Salt

*I don't know the exact measurements coz I don't measure. I just put.

First, I season the chicken with a little salt.
Let it stand for 15-30mins.
Then, I mix together the All purpose flour, garlic powder, iodize salt and pepper into a bowl.
I then put the chicken one at a time in the bowl, to coat it with the batter.
Then, deepfry it in lowfire.

In the picture, the chicken was kinda overcooked. Coz I am afraid of blood in chicken! I absolutely hate it when I still see even a small amount of blood.

But all in all, I am still happy with the outcome (this is great coming from someone who once cooked hotdogs burnt on the outside,cold inside. I also f*cked up instant knorr Nido soup one time).

My family loved it, that's good enough for me ;)

Btw, any other tips in cooking fried chicken?

The Unoriginal.

The Title.
So Unoriginal, I know. But you have to admit,it does sound so cool, at least that's what I think. Haha!
And yeah, I am a fan of the Carrie Diaries TV series.

So here we go again. New blog. New site. New ideas? hmm. Not so sure. I guess it's up to me to put some spice and originality in my life.

So far, for years now. My life has been BORING. Hence the absence of blog posts. All I post about are pics and stories of my kids. I love them to bits and they mostly make up my life now, but I NEED to be myself again. Find my voice again.

So here's to hoping I find more originality, ideas and fun adventures.

ciao for now!
