Making sandwich in the hotel room with a hairdryer

You should only do this if you really got no choice as hairdryers can blow dust onto your sandwich.

Otherwise, use the iron or the coffeemaker.

What you need:

1) Hair Dryer

2) Cheese

3) Bread

4) Plate

5) Butter


1) Spread butter on one side of each piece of bread

2) Place one slice of the bread, buttered side up, on the plate

3) Place cheese on the piece of bread, you can add as much cheese as you want but it will also take a longer time to prepare

4) Add anything else that you would like to put in your sandwich. These include include ham, tomato slices, or other items that do not need to be thoroughly cooked and will not be damaged by mild heat.

5) Cover the sandwich with the second piece of bread, placing the buttered side down on top of the contents of the sandwich

6) Turn on hair dryer to the highest setting. Hold the hair dryer about 25-30cm away from the sandwich depending on the intensity of the hair dryer

7) Heat the sandwich until the cheese melts and change the placing of your hairdryer every few minutes to ensure a nice, even amount of cooking throughout the sandwich

8) Enjoy once your cheese melts completely

This would work best with a coffee maker.

1. Ask for pepper and salt from room service

3. Put in some pepper and salt

4. Put it under the coffee maker and let the boiling water slowly drip into the cup

5. Let it "cook" for around 4 minutes and you have yourself a piece of nicely cooked salmon!

Just don't ask about the random raw salmon in your hotel room.

What is the difference between hot dog and sausage?

I decided to write about this topic when I found out that some of my friends can't see the difference between a hot dog and a sausage.

The main differences are the origins and the ingredients.

The high quality traditional German sausages first come from Neu-Isenburg, a small town on the road from Frakfurt to Darmstadt. It is made of prime lean pork and a little salted bacon fat. It is then finely chopped into a smooth paste, put into pork casings and smoked.

Hot dogs
The stuff that we call hot dogs are made from very different ingredients and most probably came from America. These ingredients can be anything like pigs' and cows' hearts; and pigs' cheeks. Iced water is added at around 1/3 the weight of the meat and stuffed into Narrow Bullock Runners (casing) and smoked.

Sausages are my favourite! What's yours?

Correct way of cooking instant noodles

Many people are unaware of the correct method of cooking instant noodles that can minimise it's harm on our body.

The common way is to boil a pot of water, put in the noodles, put in the powder, boil even longer and serve.

However, this method of cooking instant noodles will turn the "already-very-unhealthy" instant noodles into super-duper-ultra-harmful noodles. If you boil the powder, which normally contains MSG, the molecular structure of the MSG will be altered and hence become toxin.

Also, instant noodles are coated with wax to prevent them from sticking into one another. The wax can only be excreted out of our body after 4 to 5 days. So you either only eat instant noodles once in a long while or you can simply take away most of the wax in the correct cooking method I'm going to teach you.

Correct cooking method:
1. Boil a pot of water
2. Put in the noodles
3. Once the noodles are almost cooked to your liking (depends on what texture you want), take the noodles out of the water onto a plate and pour away all the water
4. Reboil a pot of water
5. Once boiled, put the noodles back in the water and turn off the heat
6. Add the ingredients and seasoning powder at the bottom of your serving bowl
7. Pour everything in the pot into the bowl
8. A bowl of healthier instant noodles served

Additional tip: To cook the best instant noodles, put a little salt in while cooking while cutting down on the seasoning powder.

Salmon Don @ Sushi Tei

Simple yet delicious, this has become one of my favourite dishes at Sushi Tei.

The rice is so tasty it can be eaten just by itself.

This is because sushi rice is used instead of normal rice.

Dim Sum @ Just Hong Kong Dim Sum, Ang Mo Kio

The dim sum that this stall serves are of better standards than most regular dim sum you see elsewhere. I decided  to go for a try after hearing that it was featured on the television show, 超级小吃“赞”2.

I really love the century egg porridge that they serve. It consists of so many ingredients including bean curd skin, shredded chicken, pepper, century egg, dried anchovy and topped with crispy Popiah skin. The combination of so many ingredients gives it such a great flavour and it only costs $2.20 for a big bowl of it.

They also serve interesting dishes like this.

I think you can guess what is it called.
Yes... it is called Carrot.

It tastes like fried Chinese New Year Cake, sweet and sticky. Adds to the fun when having a meal with your friends and family.

It also serves about 20 more dishes from the common to the uncommon. Although some of the prices are relatively higher, the quality of the food makes it really worthed it.

Must try!

Beef Lasagna @ Swensen's

It wasn't bad but I wouldn't say it's one of the best. The only thing I like about this lasagna is how they 'flood' the sides with tomato sauce.

This can be something you can order the next time you look at Swensen's boring menu and do not know what to eat.
