Firstly, i would like to thank Elin from Elinluv's Titbits Corner and Kitchen Flavours for passing this award to me, i know this has been long overdue!I'm truly honoured to receive this award from them, two of the bloggers whom their blogs that i will never fail to visit. There are always delicious and mouthwatering food good enough to torture me!
Also, I received yet another lovely award from CG from Cooking Gallery, a very talented lady and always creative in all her bentos making. You will be amazed looking at her bento sets and not forgetting a wide range of Japanese food. Thank you so much for all these awards and i really appreciate that.

Again, there are some rules to abide in order to accept this award and they are:

1.Post linking back to the person that gave you the award
2.Share 7 random things about yourself
3.Award 15 recently discovered blogs
4.Drop them a note and tell them about it.

Can i just skip note (2)? OK, well, i'm not good at this so i'm going to be very brief about this..
1. I'm a chinese ..the reason i put this down is because recently there is a reader who thinks i'm a malay and was puzzled when i put up a pork dish in my blog recently. I claimed medium built though there are some say that i'm small, they must really go and have their eyes checked.
2. I usually blog during the night cos this is time when i can really have some quiet moments.
3. I love dogs and have a lab retriever at home and now considering getting another retriever or maybe a german shepherd
4. My favourite song in karaoke is 'love will keep us alive'..ahem..i can sing a little bit .at least i wont crack the glass!
5. Have not stopped colouring my hair since 15 years ago..oh, it's not blue or green..just the many shades of brown. I like abit of orangey brown but unfortunately bright colour doesnt usually last long.
6. Am still curious about the taste of macarons, i'm not confident enough to do this at the moment but would like to have a taste of it. Everytime i can only eat from my computer screen! If anyone dropping by ipoh and visit me, please get me some macarons!
7. Have a weakness for earrings. Dangling ones, stud ones but not the very big ones.

And here's my lunch for today..a simple, quick and easy pasta with poached egg. In case some of you who is not too familiar with poaching an egg, you can refer to Victor (Random Cuisine) method of poaching an egg. I followed his method of doing this.

Ingredients: ( serves 2 )
200gm of fettucine
2 bacon rashers ( cut into pieces)
3 pieces of white mushrooms
100ml  heavy cream
2 eggs
olive oil and garlic
little black pepper

1. Cook pasta in a pot of boiling water until cooked. Drain and set aside.
2. Pour oil in a frying pan and add garlic, bacon and white mushooms and fry them for several minutes till mushroom is soft.
3.Add cream and bring to boil and until cream is slightly thickened.
4. Pour the cream mixture to the pasta and toss till well mixed. Divide into portions and add in the poached egg and sprinkle some black pepper on top if you like.

    p/s the situation in Japan is getting worst. Don't know it's going to spread through air to other Asia countries or not! Absolutey horrible.

  32. hi zoe, i;ve seen your bread post using water roux, nice to hear that you will keep trying on that might also be interested in the gelatinised dough method, that dough is much easier to handle.

    kenny: wow, pai seh already!! what makes your mouth so sweet??

    mary and pei lin, thank you!

    WH: i got her when she was probably 2 months old and now she's nine years old..getting old..
    oh, my singing is nothing compared to MY..haha!!

    hi ann: nice of you to drop by, thanks!

    kristy: your comments really made me laugh! i laughed too when i saw broken wings in jeannie's post. i dont know abt the radiation speading to other countries and i think people elsewhere are also worry about the foodstuffs that are going to come in from japan..

    hi pete: that hot pepper does gives a little kick to the pasta..

    thanks, monet! appreciate your visit and comments!

    hanushi: thanks for accepting the award, you deserved that, dear!

  33. My mouth, sweet? Surely not. If at all, it must be the raw honey I got from my Cameron Highlands trip last year, hehe. :P

  34. gosh.. coming by here is as torturous as going to elin's blog.. :)

  35. Congratulations on your awards! This looks like a delicious lunch! I love how quick and easy it is! :)

  36. Hi Lena,
    good to "know" a bit of yourself from this post! We share facts #1, #5, and #7. I am also a chinese who colours my hair regularly and have big love for big earrings (esp if they are diamond!) LOL. i hope you find the courage to make those macarons soon, and what a lovely pasta u got there! The poached egg, with its runny content is sooooo inviting!

  37. Great recipe! And congratulations on your award :-)

    Take care Lena and have a nice week :-)


  38. Hi Lena,
    Just saw your comment on my potted garden. The internet went offline since yesterday morning!
    I bought the sweet basil plant from the nursery, a small plant. It grows very fast and you can cut the stem and grow from there. I have three plants now. The same can be done for most herbs, Oregano, Thai Basil, Thymes can be propagated by stem cutting. Rosemary is a little difficult but I think that I finally succeeded propagating it after many attempts. Growing your own herbs is really rewarding. Try it!

  39. kenny , honey..hmm, that will make a good kissable sweet lips too!!

    oh claire my dear, dont you worry , i'm sure elin will always save some of her lovely treats for you!

    cristina: simple, quick and yet satisfying!!

    crustabakes: i can also tell abt fact (5) from your profile picture. Big diamond earrings?? wow, that's real eye catchy!

    ron: thanks, glad you're visiting again and your comment.

    kitchen flavours: thank you so much for your info! i just bought a amall pot of basil leaves today. i'll let you know the updates.

  40. hi quay po, nice to see you again. I've made some lemon curd using your recipe and i've used that for spreading on my pavlova, thanks for sharing that!

  41. Good kissable sweet lips? Hehe, I sure don't get complaints about mine... ;)

  42. Hi Lena, Congratulations about getting your awards. I think you deserve them because you always make delicious and yummy looking food. Also, thank you for passing on this award to me. It means a lot to me :) Sorry for not commenting until now, I will get a new post up asap. Btw, the noodles look very good. They seem like something my brother would like eating. I always wanted to try making something with fettucine.

  43. esther, take your time, no hurry! you're such a hardworking girl and i can feel that you have great passions in baking and i think all these awards are great motivation for all of us and remembering us!

  44. This really looks delicious with lots of twists. I'm definitely craving for a plate of that right now. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. This is definitely a must do recipe this weekend since I got my Food Safety Course.
