I spent most of Saturday on my feet – at the gym (a powerful Strength & Core workout that I convinced the bf to attend as well – he was one of the only three men there) and around the city (had to eat an ice-cream seeing as this was one of the last sunny weekends before the sun shuts down for Winter).
To my utter excitement we found mooncakes at Hong Kong Supermarked (on Bernt Ankers gate). Just imagine, mooncakes in Oslo! I’ve come across mooncakes and many amazing Asian ingredients at this Asian grocery store before so in a way I kind of hoped/expected that they’d have them this time of the year. It was just nice to have it confirmed. We got the mini ones as they have less egg yolks in them – I’m not a big fan of the salted egg yolks but I don’t mind them as long as I get to eat some mooncakes each year.
I’m a bit sore today that laughing hurts – but it was so worth it. Gosh I sound like a gym junkie now 😦
I met some friends for lunch and ice-cream yesterday. The weather was “ice-cream perfect” as it was sunny and windy as the same time. Mr T called it “a perfect Autumn day”.
Olive and Nan is a cute restaurant in Paleet. Despite being part of a high end mall, this restaurant is anything but pricey and pretentious. It’s actually very down to earth – you’re guaranteed a nice meal consisting of freshly made nan bread and a curry (either Chicken Tikka, Garlic Chicken, Prawn Tikka, etc.) and some rice. On my second visit there (yesterday) they also had Mango Lassi. It was so tasty and smooth.
Thanks to the mooncakes, I felt like Asian food today so for lunch I made Char Siu Chicken Drumsticks (recipe courtesy of Kimbaskitchen). I couldn’t get chicken wings (don’t ask) so I settled for drumsticks instead. They were delicious served with fried beehoon (doesn’t look as good as it tasted) and omelette strips (made them the way my Mom does). Perfect for a lazy Sunday!
I’m amazed that I actually found Lee Kum Kee’s Char Siu Sauce in Hong Kong Supermarked. I also made sure I got a bottle of Hoi Sin sauce. Just need a recipe to use it for 🙂
*Happy sigh* I’m going to spend my remaining Sunday cleaning, reading and catching up with laundry. I hope you guys are having a great weekend 🙂
