Adore to somebody foods and recipes it’s a natural feeling, being fond of it--eager to it, I believe you would illustrate of the best sensation food you ever tasted before!
Since then, I was pretty often without hesitation and humbly polite asking of other people foods especially the recipes, how to make it and what the trick is, even though I felt the person who I asked for is appear being innocent speechless--kind of blur where it has to start from.
Shall we sitting together and let me know what it is all about?
I'll stick my memory on rather than piece of paper *wink
Anyway there is a friend of mine always being kindly and compassionately about his flawless foods especially typical authentic Chinese food. Since last 2006 we have separated by the ocean, he and his wife have to moved out to other country for other job but our regularly conversations subject via chat messenger is **Foods and beyond **wink! Thanks to you Jo! I have never imagined how I can modify the recipe without your original one! And it was absolutely indeed.
