Let's do the Egg Jiggle Dance.

For those who knows me, they know that I LURVEEEE steam egg!
 
What's so special about it, I have no idea, I just love it.
 
I've never tried to make it at home, I've always ordered it when I go out to eat, and it cost a bomb for just steam eggs.
 
So finally, after multiple trials...
 
I've managed to tweak the recipe into my very own.
 
Look at it jiggle!

All you need is - feeds 4 unless you love egg so much like me, it's for 1 :) !
4 eggs
6 x 1/4 cup warm water (360ml)
Salt & Pepper
Soy Sauce

1) Prepare your steamer/a pot of water, deep and wide enough for your ramekins to fit in, make sure it doesn't sit directly in the pot, have those steamer racks)
2) Break your eggs in a bowl.
3) Pour the warm water into the eggs while mixing it with a chopstick
4) Add your seasoning (salt, white pepper, soy sauce), it is really up to you, how much flavor you want in them. Pour into your ramekins for steaming.
5) Steam it for 10-12 minutes, or you'll know when it is ready when it jiggles smoothly in the middle.
6) Serve hot, you can sprinkle with some garnish - chopped spring onions too.

Tips - I usually have one chopstick on each side of the pot to hold the lid from completely closing the pot, this helps to prevent the top layer of the egg from bubbling, it will give you a smooth top.
 
Enjoy! :)

Online Book Shoppers

Hey...it has been a while...sorry...I have been so busy...

I had 2 weddings and a honeymoon to plan and work was keeping me pretty occupied too.

Now that's all over, I'll try and update it more regularly okay...

Anyway, I just wanted to know where do you usually buy your books?

As for me, I usually buy them online, as it is way cheaper than getting it at the bookstore...of course it doesn't include those places that has promotions or discounts from time to time like Basement Bookstore in Central Train Station Sydney.

Before I hit BUY online, I usually check out Booko.com to compare the books prices. Booko, makes it easy for me to see how much the book costs, shipping charges and delivery time frame.
 
So far, the 2 online sites that I usually use are www.bookdepository.com and www.betterworldbooks.com . I am sure there are plenty of other websites that might be cheaper. But for me to buy books to be shipped to Australia, these would be my 2 recommended ones.

Though, Amazon's prices are cheaper if you live in the UK or US, I would say Amazon would be better. Previously, when Amazon.co.uk used to have this promotion - free shipping to Australia, by spending more than £25, I used to buy my books from them, but I found that my books often arrives a lil' damaged.

Anyway, check Booko out, it definitely saves you time from checking various sites to compare prices if you're buying online.

Did you also know that Bookdepository is having a 50 books, 50 offers, 25 hours promotion now!?

*This is my own opinion, and I am not paid to do this. I just thought, this would come in handy for you online book shoppers!

Have a good weekend!

Oh oh...on another note, I made my hubby a Nutella Cake for his birthday, similar recipe to this here, but I made some changes.
