My Happiest Moment

Few days ago, Egg asked me to write something about the happiest moment in my life. I paused for awhile then I began to ponder. During these few months time, things have not been going very well and apparently, there isn’t much happy moment that I can remember.
I was trying hard to scan through all my mental images searching for the happiest ones, and “ding!”, the answer came. My happiest moment will be the moment when Egg and I are cooking together.
Egg and I loves to eat very much (we've put on weight ever since we got married – a norm for married couples) and we have been using our kitchen as our private laboratory, experimenting all types of food!
We were thrilled to bits when we successfully created something “edible” which tasted nice. During this half a year staying together, we've been cooking during every weekends. I would visit the market nearby to grab some fresh meats and vegetables while Egg will be at home flipping through her recipe book.
Our most recent creation was our “5 spices” meat roll. It was our first attempt and it was very successful! It's fairly simple, you only need 5 spices powder, minced meat, finely chopped prawn, salt and pepper for seasoning and the beancurd sheet for the outer layer. 
We also did our version of Indian style curry chicken, sweet sour chicken by using left over mandarin oranges, our own version of home made chicken rice with butter, and my personal favourite, soy sauce pork in sweet sauce topped with fried garlic.
We also made our own peanut butter ice cream using the peanut butter cookies and fried popiah skin with sugary green bean powders. Sounds crazy? Haha! That’s how we enjoyed our weekends normally.
Ever since Egg started her new job, she has been as busy as a bee. There was once that she stayed in her office until 1 am in the morning (during the Sarawak General election). When she reached home, I was already slept like a log. When I woke up the other day, she was still fast asleep. 
She often left memos for me asking me to prepare my own dinner as she won't be back during dinner time. Sigh..what to do? We just need to work hard since we were burdened with all the installments. Typical Malaysian aye?

After all the working hours, the only time left for us to spend together left weekends. Thus, weekends will be our happiest moment when we can spend our time doing things we enjoyed the most, COOKING!

Too bad that we didn’t get to snap the photos for most of the food mentioned. How I wished to have all the scene of our experiment taken down with the latest Olympus Pen series camera. Not only that the happy moment of us will be preserved, we also get to recall back the strange yet yummy food that we’ve created! 

We might even open up our very own coffee shops selling all these stuff! Then I'll frame all those photos on the walls. Haha! Am I thinking too much?

Now with Olympus Pen Lite E-PL3, you can capture your happiest moment even at complicated angle because Olympus Pen E-PL3 comes with a 3.0-inch flip-out widescreen LCD monitor.

The new Olympus Pen mini E-PM1 is the smallest Pen in the Onlympus Pen series with dimension of only 109.5 x 63.7 x 34.0mm and 265g (including Battery and Memory card). Carrying an Olympus Pen mini E-PM1 is even lighter than carrying a bottle of mineral water!
How I wished I can get my hands on these gadgets and I'll have all our happiest moment captured without hesitation!
