My maiden attempt on cooking in air fryer( mayer air fryer)- not sponsored

Yesterday was my first attempt to cook steak in air fryer. I have to admit that I had chosen the wrong cut of meat for steak. Nonetheless, I officially broke the record of what people choose to cook for first time in air fryer.


Recipe

1 piece of steak
1 small packet of butter
half a teaspoon of salt to rub both sides
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of mixed italian herbs

I marinated the cut of meat, chuck tender with corn flour which was in replacement of meat tenderizer, salt, garlic powder and mixed Italian herbs. I preheat my air fryer at 180 degree celsius for about 5 minutes. Next, I put a piece of SCS butter which is those packed into one small packet one and oil my grill pan. followed by placing my steak into the air fryer. One side about 10 mins to ensure the proper grilling of the steak.

Review of Ban Leong Wah Hoe

Recently, I had the chance to try to ban leong wah hoe's chilli crab during Deepavali. It was the promotion of the 2kg of crabs at $88 that got my family to go and try.

Here comes the main dish


For me, there are not enough eggs in the chilli crab sauce. It is not spicy enough and was a bit too watery. However, if it  is to be eaten with the deep fried mantou. It is just nice.




For this har cheong kai, it was the best dish that my family likes. Crispy and taste just nice.

For this dish, I would not rate it very nice.
This baby squid dish is my favourite cos it is crispy and the sauce that comes with it was good.

Overall, we paid about $146 for these few dishes, 4 plates of rice and 5 drinks. However, to ask me to come all the way to this location to eat I would consider twice. Location wise is too far perhaps maybe others don't mind.

中秋节快乐

Today is 中秋节, it reminded me of my late grandmother whom i loved the most. I thought i could make time for her on 中秋节 last year but I could not make it due to work. This is the biggest regret in my life. I really missed spending this time with her.

Walking thru the shopping malls or even supermarkets selling pomelo reminded me that she has asked me to buy her ipoh pomelo for her to eat. That is something that she likes to eat. I really missed my ah ma.

At the same time today this year, I was carrying lantern without her beside me. Though this something that only kids would do but I just carried the lantern to tell her that I missed her as well.


Anyway 中秋节快乐 once again all.

A Slightly Different National Day

This year, it was a slightly different national day 'cos it is the first time i visited gardens by the bay.
I have been hesitating to visit gardens by the bay as i was unwilling to pay for the conservatories fee.
However, I decided to pay and see it for myself once to satisfy my curiosity.

Here's some of the pictures i took while i was there





Reminds me that xmas is coming 
For the month of august, orchids seems to be in the theme as it is the national flower of Singapore


Indeed, the flowers in flower dome are pretty. Hopefully next time i will be able to see the tulips.



Secret garden in cloud forest

For cloud forest, I don't extremely enjoy due to the phobia of heights..the emptiness when you are supposed to walk the bridge from level 6 to the lost world at level 7.

Seriously , i do think that gardens by the bay do make a great place for picnic and also place for dating when you are struggling during month end. You can just don't pay to enter the conservatories prepare some sandwiches or hotdog buns with salad, some fruits,chips and a mat  and you are good to go.

Tips on how to get there
http://www.gardensbythebay.com.sg/en/plan-your-visit/getting-here-and-parking.html

i literally took 518 the express bus which is at my door step to marina bay sands and walk over via the bridge it was so simple. Really had loads of fun but forget to stay back to watch fireworks on national day.

Movie review on Transformers: The Last Knight



For this movie, it was not as exciting that I had expected it to be. My expectations before this movie were more of the fighting scenes. It does not give me the adrenaline rush that I wanted.

Story plot was not really exciting. I was just a bit bored during the show until the ending part. There were certain scenes of the transformers where I thought that the scene looks a bit satanic. However, this is my personal opinion.

Do write in your comments on how you feel about the movie to share with me.
