Things..

Okay, I am showing up a lot of MTV of old songs by singers. Like this, Things by Nancy Sinatra and Dean Martin. One of the songs, my dad used to play on his record player when I was a kid.

Today, hubby took leave from work. And told me what he wanted. He said I use to cook every weekend, then I hardly do that now. He missed my cooking, my simple fare of warmed food on the table. These days we eat cold food, reheated by steaming till the veggies turn limp.

So the king ordered his Imperial cook that this is what he wants for lunch today:

Salt n Pepper Chicken Wings


Kung Pao Pork


Hay Piah Zi(common street food called Prawn Fritters)


Golden Bird's Nest(Vegetarian)


Like the duo sang it..thinking about the things we used to do. To me, its more like "thinking about the things I USED TO DO!"

Things

Every night I sit here by my window (window)
Staring at the lonely avenue (avenue)
Watching lovers holdin' hands
And laughin' (ha ha ha)
Thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do
(Thinkin' 'bout things)
Like a walk in the park (things)
Like a kiss in the dark (things)
Like a sailboat ride (ya ya)
What about the night we cried
Things like a lover's vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do

Memories are all I have to cling to (cling to)
And heartaches are the friends
I'm talkin' to (but you got me now)
When I'm not thinkin' of just how much
I love you ('bout I love you, too)
I'm thinkin' the things we used to do
(Used to do, thinkin' 'bout things)
Like a walk in the park (things)
Like a kiss in the dark (things)
Like a sailboat ride (ya ya)
What about the night we cried
Things like a lover's vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinkin' about the things we used to do

I still can hear the juke box softly
Playin' (playin')
And the face I see each day belongs to you
(Belongs to you)
But there's not a single sound
And there's nobody else around
But that's just me thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do
(We used to do, thinkin' 'bout things)
Like a walk in the park (things)
Like a kiss in the dark (things)
Like a sailboat ride (ya ya)
What about the night that we cried
Things like a lover's vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinkin' about the things we used to do
And heartaches are the friends I'm talkin' to
You got me thinkin' 'bout
The things we used to do (I hope so)
Thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do

Hi Gina,

I remember seeing the prawn fritters recipe on cuisine-asia.com before. Now cannot find it there anymore.

Would you be kind enough to post this recipe again here because I really miss it. Can't find it here in Australia.

God bless
