Am looking forward to the flowering from the bulbs and harvesting the sprouting green for cooking.

"Grow, grow my little chilli
Rain come and sun shine bright
Fight bravely on
Your brief appearance had lighten my day
and bought leaps of little joy to my heart.
Thank you. Ganbatte!"
Little Brown Seeds
Little brown seeds so small and round,
Are sleeping quietly under ground.
Down come the raindrops
sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle.
Out comes the rainbow,
twinkle, twinkle, twinkle.
Little brown seeds way down below,
Up through the earth they grow, grow, grow.
Little green leaves come one by one.
They hold up their heads and look at the sun.

My own creation of Portobello Mushroom Pasta after studying many versions of others.
Flavoursome and spicy, i love this creation!
As for dinner, my rare treat of porky Satay. Well-marinated meat with warm, thick and spicy peanut sauce. Would you believe you can still get a 30 cents a stick satay in this high inflation year?
A raise in GST from 5% to 7% and the oil prices at a record high of almost US$100 a barrel, simply adds salt to wound. Further to this are the worldwide rocketing prices of wheat, milk and metal driven by shortage and demand.
Prices of foodstuff and all in the local market are really going up crazily now. What a pricey start to year ending 2007.
