Dress shortening the lazy way

I have this long dress that's probably fit a 6 feet tall woman and I had been wanting to shorten it.

Took out the scissors, chalk pencil and drew a line where I'm going to cut. Sekali, when I tried it on.. it was still a little too long (or.. I'm just too short).

And my genius mom came over and said, why don't you follow the pattern? You will get a really like bottom for the dress. Super smart eh my mom!

So I took out the scissors and cut according to the pattern and being lazy, I just use candle to burn the edge in order to prevent fraying. It's synthetic fabric, I wouldn't recommend you doing to cotton OK. After several times that I nearly burn the whole dress or make holes in it, it's finally done!

There you go, lazy way of shortening your dress without any sewing needed. Not recommended for perfectionist though. Hehehehehhee

Air fried "Cheat One" KFC Chicken

Received quite a number of messages to share my recipe after posting this photo in my IG and FB, and I thought, I might as well blog about it and get some page views! Hehehheehhe

I got the original recipe from here and here but if you're really lazy to click and read, here's a simplified version.
1. Marinate your chicken with salt and pepper for at least 30 minutes in the fridge.

2. In a large bowl, mix in
- 1/2 cup of Panko bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of Paprika powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of Curry Powder (Because I don't have Cayenne Pepper and I love the aroma of Curry Powder)
- 1/4 teaspoon of Pepper
- Pinch of salt 

Actually.... I always simply antam / agak-agak / eyeballed the quantity but for some of you who prefer to cook with the precise quantity, you better check other recipes. Hehe. 

Also, I think you can simply add any herbs you like.. Trial and error mah. Who knows you create an even better fried chicken leh.

3. Preheat the airfryer to 200°C

4. Pour milk or buttermilk in a shallow bowl.

5. Dip chicken in milk and then roll it in the flour mixture. Repeat if you can a thicker coat and crispier bite.

6. Put your chicken in to the air fryer and fry for 10 minutes at 200°C.

7. Check for white spots of flour and brush oil over it. Well, you can brush the whole chicken thigh or drumstick if you want but if you choose airfrying it, of course you prefer using less oil right?

8. Another 10 minutes at 150°C to make sure the chicken cook through
(Because I kiasi, I used 15 minutes instead)

I tell you, my kitchen smells so so so so good even air frying these chicken and it's so much easier to clean the air fryer than to wash the wok, clean the stove and the wall after deep frying. Somemore no need jaga api.

Actually it wasn't my first time trying these air fried chicken. 

The first batch kinda failed because:

1. Instead of milk, I used egg wash and langsung tak crispy lahhhhhhhhhh......
2. I didn't have any panko too, not that it matters much but still..... 

So how about you guys try and let me know what modification you made and the result you get!

And also, anyone has Jollibee's gravy recipe to complete the whole thing?

Kaling me softly

So, Bobby and I were doing some grocery shopping in SupaSave yesterday and for the very first time, we saw kale available on the shelf. We were like, "GET! Sibeh famous this veggie must try eh! Damn laku also."

Then I proceeded to choose and silly me thought of something stupid...

I turned around and smiled gleefully to Bobby and said,

"Will you marry me?"

 Sekali.... there was another couple who stood behind us and witnessed everything, looking at me like this ->     o.O?! 

Siao chabo on the loose yo~

But, wouldn't it be great if Bobby replied me "Oh Kale Yes!!!"
