Tom Yum Diet Chicken

So here's a really easy chicken recipe from my dinner  tonight. Its zero oil, and cooks in 5 minutes in the microwave. 

Preparing time 5 minutes. Cooking time 5 minutes. Serves one.

1. 100 grams boneless chicken breast diced
2. 1 onion, chopped
3. 1 tomato, chopped
4. 1 bell pepper, remove the seeds and chop
5. 4 button mushrooms, chopped
6. 1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
7. 1 tablespoon Tom Yum paste
8. 1 tablespoon coconut cream
9. 2 tablespoons of passata
10. Coriander with stem, pulled apart and torn. (Now take in that beautiful smell!)

1. In a microwavable bowl add the diced chicken. Microwave for 1 minute.
2. Remove, stir and add all the vegetables. Microwave for 2 minutes, remove and stir.
3. Add the ginger garlic paste, Tom Yum paste, Coconut cream and passata. Microwave for 2 minutes, remove and stir.
4. Garnish with coriander.

- You can add any brand ginger garlic paste.
- Tom Yum paste is a really delicious Thai paste that you can buy at any Asian grocery store and they're even available at Walmart (for the American's), Tesco's (for you Brits) and well in Asia kinda just everywhere.
- Kara coconut cream is easily available in Singapore (think Mustafa!) but you can use any coconut milk/cream/powder.
- I only add the Passata (that I got from Waitrose but for all of you non England residents any passata will do) to give a bit of gravy incase you want to eat this with rice. Even no passata will do!

Leopard nails!

I did my nails today in the hot leopard spot trend that's been going around. I love them! =)

And now, it's off to the gym for me!!

I hate exercise!

My mum just sent me this in an email! Perfectly describes my tuesday =)

Movie night outfit!

I went to see the new Superman flick tonight, oh my gosh what a cutie! He had the whole Wolverine thing going on initially, with his hot beard and by the end of the movie I was drooling over his bulging biceps and ripped abs through his suit! Hahaha!

But today was the first time I wore this necklace (that I'd got for free for shopping for a certain amount at a pharmacy??! Sat whaat!). I paired it with an oversized Accessorize-esq bag and layered it with this cotton red shirt which I wore with khaki's.

Now I think it would've looked better like this. Don't you agree? :)

Ps: Definitely recommend the movie though! Man of Steel was very different from any other Superman movie I've seen with how much detail it went into with Kal-el's life and his history with Krypton. There was no mention on Kryptonite, no Lex Luthor and a little less action for my liking, but a good movie nonetheless!

New nails!

I've got a new nail colour on today! Just a baby pink on the bottom with a darker pink crack on the top. I'm telling you crack is the best way to spice up your nails when you can't be bothered to do something fancy with them.

Pre engagement photos

Roka picture! :)

I told you all about my roka ceremony in my last post (you can read about it by clicking here) but I forgot to show you pictures! Here's some now!

I was in love with my dress, a traditional anarkali. I loved all my jewelry, loved the fabulous location and totally loved my awesome dad for organizing all of it. Really missed my mum 'cuz she couldn't make it but here's to a lot of celebrating with her to make up for it! :)

One month anniversary

Roses <3

Btw- I'm a silly nut.

I recently had my roka ceremony, well it was exactly a month ago on the 15th of May, 2013. This was a traditionally punjabi ceremony we had at the Hyatt, and it was reaaally beau.tee.ful!

For those of you not familiar with "punjabi's" or the roka ceremony ('cuz I had no idea what it was!) it's basically like the first time the soon to be bride and groom's family meets each other. It's the first official wedding event and its a step before the engagement. It's kind of like a betrothal. 

I had this ceremony 'cuz my soon to be fiance is ethnically an Indian punjabi. Coming back to why I'm a silly nut, I had the most beautiful roses delivered right to my doorstep today.

I get a card with it, so I know they're from him and I automatically assume he's sent them to apologise 'cuz we had a bit of a tiff the day before (Did I mention he's in New York and I'm all the way on the other side of the globe so we only talk for 5 minutes on the phone twice a day). The distance was really getting to us I suppose. And oh he'd left to fly off to New York the night of the roka and his family followed soon after.

So anyway, I ring him my evening time, his morning time and I go-

Me: Can't I get regular you're a wonderful person flowers, as opposed to I'm sorry flowers all the time?
Him: Wait, huh. They're not I'm sorry flowers. I sent them 'cuz it's the 15th.
Me: What's so special about the 15th?

Now I really want to go back in time and smack myself.

Him: Babe, it's the 15th. Our roka was exactly a month ago? Happy anniversary.
Me: *mentally kicking myself*

So much for the woman's the sappy romantic one. Lol!

Guess who's back!

Oh dear...

I'm back again, after aaages of stalking other peoples blogs (seriously, I feel like I know them personally!) and I've finally given in again to trying to maintain an online diary/blog about my life and things that interest me.

I tried to whole write-a-daily-diary as well in the late 90's. The next decade was spent vlogging/blogging. Didn't really work out. So I hope this time, it turns out better!

Especially because I've got some really exciting upcoming events in my life and I want to have a place to come back to in 10 years and reflect! It'll definitely be handy when I get all nostalgic!
