Okie, back to (normal) blogging.

Pretty and delicious, yet very easy to do.

*Heard loud applauses and "Thank You" everywhere*

NOTE: I LEARNED IT FROM THE TAIWAN TV SHOW "GOOD IDEA" 生活智慧王(I know I know, only aunties watch that.. But I love the show! It's so bloody cool!) , I'M NOT THE INVENTOR OF THIS DISH SO DON'T PRAISE ME.

(Shows on Channel 33 every Saturday 8.00pm, repeat on Sunday 9.30am and 3.30pm)

.... But you can thank me for sharing lah. Hahahahaaa. Or vote for me!

Stuffs you need to prepare

- Bread slices (doh....)

- Chicken toast, Beef Salami, Cheese, tomato dices, cucumbers, cheese... Basically what so ever you feel like putting in.

And other stuffs like rolling pin (not necessary actually), oven, cups and.. knife? (Double-Doh...)

As you can see, I'm slicing it on a piece of aluminium foil. That's because the cutting board was occupied by my mum and I was desperate to try making it liao.

Of course, you have to cut all four sides.

Now you know how limited my mum's kitchen is. She doesn't bake so no rolling pin...and even mixer and weight scale. Whenever I feel like baking I have to borrow it from my neighbour.

So I used my glass instead, serves the same function anyway. The bread slice need to be thin and flat, that's it.

(Follow the red line)

Be careful not to slit it fully and make it into half or quarter.
The center of the bread is going to be the base to hold the salamis, that's why it's important that you leave more than enough space for it.

Okay, this is the part I find it hard to explain liao...

Ermm...erm... After cutting the slits, you get 4 parts right?
So all you need to do is put one behind another, forming a flower-like cup...

You get what I mean right?

. . . . .

(Here, if most of you get lost in this step.. I'll film a short clip to show you guys. Just drop me a message in the comment box)

I can't find any small steel cups thus I used aluminium foils, put it in a small bowl and get the shape printed.

(Some more no need to wash lagi.... I'm damn smart!)

Toast it for 15 minutes using 150 degrees.

Note: We just want the bread slices to get a bit harden and crispy forming a a flower bud.

While waiting for it, it's time to prepare the ingredients for the sandwich.

Make sure the egg is not too thick else it'll be difficult to roll later.

Actually the rose sandwich will look much much more nicer with smoked salmon. But I can't them in KB/Seria! For those who ever eat sashimis will know how pretty the chefs always served them in the wooden plank.

We can do the same too, just arrange two to three slices in order and roll them up.

Anyway, after toasting - put a spoonful of mayonaise on to the base of it.
(The part I say don't cut fully one leh?)

The mayonaise is used to give the sandwich a better taste and support so that it looks more like petals in it.

Then now you can roll the salamis and put them into the "flower bud".

*cough* I made a mistake while editing.. The below picture is suppose to be Step 9 but maybe I was too hungry so I typed 10 instead... Sorry ah.....


As you can see, I put in some diced cucumber in it to add some colours to it.
And... it kinda makes the sandwich looks more healthy isn't it?

The above one is egg with beef salami topped with tomato dices.

And the picture below is chicken toast with egg.

The other combinations I tried was cheese with tomatoes, cheese and eggs, cheese and chicken toast, cheese and beef salami... That's why I said basically you can try anything you like as long as it's thin enough to roll.

So pretty right?

Perfect for a gathering to impress your friends, boyfriends, future parents-in-law and your pet cat.

And I just had to post a picture of me with it (and spoil the whole beautiful post with my big nose) because it's my first time trying!

Serious, they're not just posing or acting in the above photo. They really think its cool and delicious! Even though they're my best friends and... I did threaten them with my fist if they say it doesn't taste good.

But you can see how sincere they are with the wide smile telling you it's really good right?

* * * * *

And us, a bunch young adults (average 25.6 years old) played lanterns and walked around Kelly's neighbourhood with lots of cars passing by and looking at us.


Why should we? It's Mid-Autumn festival man.. We only get to celebrate it once a year.
Chinese culture okay~ Must follow.

What's so malu for a 25 years old bride-to-be carrying a Ultra-man lantern and a 25 years old engineer holding a Sakura lantern? No big deal what.


Note to self: Next year buy battery-operated lantern with music one. So no need to keep lighting new candles and lousy friends won't see-low me sure burn the paper lantern.

I didn't burnt my lantern okay. Professional kali ah~

This is one of the dishes that I wanna intro you cos I know you are the FOOD LOVER as shown in ur blog. Rose sandwich, do it for your darling!!!

JaMiLLa said...

Oh ya forget to report to you, ah king.

My friend encountered a problem when voting for you in the Simpur site. It said that "It looks like you have already voted. Your vote was not counted. The results for this poll are not available to the public."

This is the first time my frend voting!! How come detect that she has been voted and shes from Singapore! She got the link from me only.

Who should we report this ah?

And one more thing is the voting can do it everyday? The second time I wanna vote for you, it also mentioned that I voted already, cant be counted. So Im abit weird on how the voting rules.

Thanis said...
