This is the first chicken dish I cooked in Singapore. I realized that local chicken tastes vey good here. It's also great that whole young chicken in soled at any super markets. I always love to cook whole chicken because I can use the bones for the sauce. I only have salt, pepper, herbs de provencal and olive oil so far but you don't need nothing much to cook good dish.

It was our first Christmas spending in Singapore this year. I didn't have much time to prepare the full dinner in new kitchen so I only did simple dinner this year. It feels very different to cook in different country. I didn't have chance to prepare Christmas flower so I created tower with local fruits. Gateau chocolate was a great success even I didn't weight ingredients.
Nishime means assortment Japanese vegetables cooked in dashi. It has to be only with vegetables and soy products but no meat. Because you cannot take stock from chicken or other meat, it rather difficult to cook very well.
This is ground chicken with shredded Gobou cooked in frying pan as small pancake. Gobou; burdock is hard textured root vegetable so it takes some time to cook, so it's better to spread the dough thinly.
White rice with raw egg is one of the simplest Japanese dish that all Japanese people love. It's simple but eggs have to be fresh and safe to eat non cooked. Almost all the eggs that sold supermarkets in Japan are eatable in raw condition because they're washed.
This is raw egg soaked rice lightly cooked in pot since my husband is not big fan of raw egg. It's equally tasty as regular "Tamago gohan".
I've prepared Japanese new year dish already. My friend and I have decided to cerebrate Japanese style of new year in early December since both of us are not in Hong Kong in actual time. Japanese are only Asian who cerebrate New Year in western calendar so it's very busy for us to prepare Christmas to New Year in one week.
Most of those ingredients are brought from Japan, thanks to my friends tremendous efforts! We made 17 different dishes that took us five to six hours to prepare all of these. Some dishes were prepared a day before as well.
