~WeAtHeR In MaNiPaL~

Lately, it is so hard for me to get up from the bed in the morning, the reason is, the weather's so cold and i just wanna wrap myself under the blanket and laze around... The weather in Manipal is turning freakin cold lately... I dunno the actual temperature, but it's almost as cold as in Cameron Highland... Even in the afternoon, although the sun is high up in the sky, but when the wind blows, it really send a chilling sensation down my backbone... grrrrrrrr... Yup, no doubt, i'm in manipal, it's in southern india... but it's really cold! the problem is, it hasn't rain for almost 3 months now... So, the weather can be considered as cold n dry. I have to apply lotion twice a day to avoid my skin to dry and peel off again... I begin to feel lucky that JPA din send me to 4 seasons countries... My tolerance level towards cold is really very very low... However, I like this cool weather lots! It really suits my holiday mood! Hehe...

Studying early in the morning with sweater on... Cold~~~

~HoLiDaY MaStErPiEcE II (PaRt TiMe HoUsEwiFe)~

It's a bz day today! I woke up at 8.30am, after getting myself ready, i cycle to RT guys hostel to meet wif Kelvin, took an auto and headed toward our destination - UDUPI... I've ask Kelvin to accompany me today, cos i hav a 'big' dinner project ahead, and i dun wanna disturb FuYew who is bz preparing for his Unis, n he dun wanna let me to go there alone cos worried bout my safety...

After collecting our residential permit at the police station, we headed towards the Fish Market... This is the first time i set my foot at this place, Kelvin too, so both of us are quite curious n excited! Cos seafood is not sold in Manipal, here is our oni choice. Lotsa seafood are sold here (fish, prawns, lala, crabs etc) n i was shocked to c lobster at there too! I have to admit dat, luckily Kelvin was there to help out, cos he's more experienced in picking fresh fish den me! Paiseh, paiseh... Lol...

After that, we headed back to Manipal to buy vegetables, chicken and other things. Hurmm... You all must be curious what big dishes am i going to cook today, right? Ahahahaha... Actually nth much, just normal steam pomfret fish, cabbage soup n also stir-fried chili chicken (recipe taken from star's kuali). It took me whole evening (around 3 hours) to prepare everything... Really a amateur cook! Lol... N i really feel exhausted after came bec from the market n after cooking... Really salute all the housewives in the whole world (esp my mom!)! Heee...

FuYew is my "lab mouse", he has to eat everything i cooked! since the purpose of me cooking it's for him, so dat he won't waste time go out n eat, can concentrate more in his studies. So, no matter tasty or not, he has to finish them off! Lol... Personally, i think the soup is a bit salty, the steam fish is ok, but the chili chicken is a bit too spicy (FuYew like this dish the most, cos he loves to eat spicy food! Heee...), so got lotsa room to improve in the future! I ate a little during dinner, cos a bit too tired to eat, but so happy to see FuYew finish everything off! Heeee...

Full course

Stir-fried Chilli Chicken

Steam fish


P/s: Lesson learnt today is, NEVER EVER wash chilies (esp dried chilli) barehand!!! My hands burn like hell after preparing the dried chillies! Hav to put lotsa ice on my hands to prevent me from crying! Lol...
