A quick threesome!

3 things that I would like to share today… very quickly:

Uncyclopedia

Jules sent me this link today. A MUST READ!!! One will think it is a joke with just one page to make fun of you-know-which-country. But… but… but… it’s not just a one page wonder, it covers a whole lot of things… I actually looked up “World War II” and “Global Warming”, and they actually cover those too!! Have fun… this is truly a good breakaway from Wikipedia.


Recipe for Oyster Mushroom with “cili padi”

1. Heat up oil and put in chopped garlic, stir till it fragrances;
2. Add in ‘cili padi’ and fry till it stings your nose;
3. Put in some salt based on your requirement;
4. Put in oyster mushroom and fry;
5. Add in a little sugar to stimulate taste (tiu mei – not a vulgar word);
6. Fry and add a little water (just a little) and cover wok wait dish to boil.
7. Add soya sauce for taste based on your preference.

Tips: Must control water input because the fluid from the mushroom will surface during cooking to form your gravy. Do not cook too long, else they will get slimy.


Feedback on Zewt’s cooking from Julia

Can be seen as a comment by Jules here.

Jules said…

Yes yes yes Zewt can cook! A very attractive quality indeed! I have been fortunate enough to taste his signature siew yok! And yes cucumber can be cooked..someting new to me too, until zewt cooked it for me!I think everyone can cook. It doesn't take a genius, just some commonsense. With experience we can only get better. It is just a matter of whether we WANT to cook! Think many of us rather run to the nearest hawker/mamak!


Have a lovely weekend everybody!!!!!

P/S: Politikus, will blog about RPGT next.

Kenny Mah said...

Oh just reading the intro alone made me laugh out loud. And when I read what our capital city was supposed to be at the side bar, I nearly died! Man, where do you find these stuff? ;)

Agree with Jules/Julia: everyone can indeed cook, just depends how well lah...

Fiona the confusing girl... said...

Hihi zewt, thanks for the link.
hehe its funny..especially the sidebar that write about our largest city!! lol.. haha agreed with julia that too..let me try to cook, hope is edible!! hehe :P

kyh said...

i read that b4. but this time the content has changed quite a lot. last time, it features rafidah aziz's "AP Birthday to You, AP Birthday to you!" HAAAA!!! luf till i nearly die!

and oso, i had my hands on some of the contents there, mainly countries and things i detest the most. cant list them down here, in case i got into any trouble. cos u know la... fanatics/extremists everywhere. ;)

kyh said...

http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Malay

Winn said...

HAHAH!! funny link! i shall come back n read again!!

cibol said...

ha ha ha .. this is out of this world!

zewt said...

huei - hahaha... why dont u ask your boo to cook... i am sure it will taste much much much better.

angel - you're welcome... happy trying...

king's wife - maybe you can search for something regarding your maid in that uncyclopedia.

kat - no need seasoning, the cucumber itself has got a natural sweet taste. if you are not vegetarian... you fry it with prawns (small ones la)... then it will taste real good... salt and a little sugar for taste. add soya sauce according to needs.

sasha - thanks!

zewt said...

Jazzi - that's becos that uncyclopedia was written with such brutal honesty! dont ya think so? i am glad i made your day!

dy - wah, then your mom does what ah? does she cook at all? what about you? can cook ah?

me - you're right... i am quite a fan with food. wanted to be chef when was studying in UK... cos i fell in love with cooking... of cos, come to malaysia... have to join the rat race.

Kenny Mah - incredible huh... they do cover quite a wide range of stuff... yup, go to yout kitchen and try some cooking today!

Fiona the confusing girl - try something simple... i am sure it will be edible... no need to try anything fancy in the beginning.

zewt said...

kyh - hahahaha... scared to get into trouble and you want me to read that link ah? hahahaha... i tried reading up chinese... it said chinese kept having sex cos during communist days, nothing else to do... thus china population so damn high... hahahahaha!!!

winn - looking forward to it... will have much to read i am sure.

cibol - hahaha... that was what i thought too when i first read it.

I loved reading the contradicting version of wikipedia... full of sarcasm and its witty.. and as hard as this may be for some ppl this is the real X files!! I liked the one about SEmi value .. reminds me of what my history teacher use to say.. he would even build a toll all the way to pluto.. in case we move planets.. lolz plus he is known as Vasool Raja (Lord of The indians who loves collecting money) and we would would vote for him for another 100000000 years.. he is immortal!!!

faichai said...

what is tiu mei???!!!
sounds vulgar. haha.

The Angry Medic said...

Arrr matey! Sorry it's been a while since I checked in here, exam season's starting and the tension's gone stratospheric. I've started looking for pointy objects everywhere I go to impale myself upon. Unfortunately this being Cambridge, every street corner has a Gothic building with really sharp and inviting spires.

Ooh, you finally discovered Uncyclopedia! Yeah, my friends and I were falling off our chairs laughing when we first found it, but none of us were offended (we were a multiracial bunch). It makes fun of everything and every race, so you have to take it with a pinch of salt.

Hope everything's going okay with you :)

The Angry Medic said...

P.S. Also, Zewt, do you have an email I can contact you at?

zewt said...

MissSHopaHolic - having browsed through it... i realised it's not easy to write it. i am sure the author must have spent a considerable amount of time on it. he is immortal... is he?

faichai - tiu (hang)... mei (taste)... understand or not? your mind vulgar that's why you think it's vulgar.... haha!

The Angry Medic - yeah, a bit late in this discovery and instantly, i would like to share it here in my blog. hey... you must do well in your exams ok? plenty of lives waiting to be saved by you.

e-mail... i will let you know.

TTL! said...

zewt said...

TTL - did you check out which is the biggest city in malaysia? hahahahaha
