Illusion – Nipples – Eggsplosion

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.
—Douglas Adams

… is naming something ‘mee siam mai hum’ when there is neither mee siam nor a single hum in it.

(p/s: we added a book AND reading glasses to make the pic look… somewhat, er, intellectual. Have you read said book or would you like to win it? Let us know in the comments and we’ll set something up.)

Mee Siam Mai Hum pasta

This one makes its rounds every other year or so, with the same ol’ peoples calling it “nipples” instead of nibbles and thinking it very funny #eyerollemoji

An old and new favourite. Perhaps one day we shall make a “10-year series” of specials.

Parmesan Fish Nipples Nibbles

How many of you can relate this to the two breakfast scenes in V for Vendetta? Hands up! 😀

Basically a buffed up version of ‘egg-in-a-basket’ — we threw it in the gym and whipped it into a cracking grilled ham & cheese-cum-egg-in-hole sandwich. Slay it (with a wimpy butter knife) like the vigilante that you are and watch the eggplosive fun! You can also ask for a topping of an eggstra ripped whole portobello mushroom.

Before the slay
Humpty Dumpty before slaying

After the slay
Humpty Dumpty

And….. here’s an easter egg for y’all ^_^

Don’t we all just love the sight of a masked, murdering vigilante wearing a flowery, pink apron and a tea towel over the shoulder? # ^_^

Did something “bad”? 3 stupid-simple ways to appease the Parental Unit

Okay, we admit that headline was pure clickbait. Guilty as charged. We’re bad peoples. You are truly not going to find anything here that is going to add value to your life in any way. Please. Just leave.

seafood sonata
♪♫ If your parents had sent you for music lessons and you, like us, had failed to make a decent career out of it (e.g. royal philharmonic orchestra member, piano teacher, street busker), you could still at least reward their years of tuition fees by telling them what a Sonata means.
Failing that. The least you could do is put a smile on said parent’s face by assembling a platter of the following ☮ Peace Øffering™ (100% success rate. Yes, we gonna give you step-by-step instructions):

  • 1 x whole fish. Scaled, gutted, filleted, coated with tempura batter & parmesan crumbs, and then fried until golden like the sun
  • 1 x small squid. Gutted, sliced into rings, battered and fried as above
  • Medley of chips: french fries, sweet potato fries, and keropok ikan (traditional fish crackers)
  • Slice of lemon and handful of cherry tomatoes, for colour and the deception of ‘wholesomeness’
  • Chopped cilantro, again for colour, and some people actually like it (not everyone thinks it tastes like soap ☠ )

⚐ Failing that. We are happy to help prepare the above Peace Øffering™ on your behalf in exchange for a small fee.

frothy rose hibiscus bandung (1)
Last day to try this, if you’re into drinking real ⚘ flower ⚘ petals. Not even sure why we created this; it’s got hipster written all over it and you know we are sooooo not hipster. Or are we? Because someone once said we’re ten-years-old so we were the first hipsters. Okay we’re talking to ourselves again and that’s not cool, Sluggie. Not. Cool. (More proof that we’re not hipsters coz we’re so uncool…)

⛐ Anyhoo, in a few short hours, we’re changing the special beverage of the week to something alcoholic. Like, upside-down-bottle-in-a-mug kind of alcoholic. We think it’ll be a fun drink/game for a Mother’s Day weekend, because everyone knows a family that drinks together spills all their dirty little secrets together.
