Well after the almost an hour wait at the dreadful custom, we quickly headed to buy our movie tickets for X- men, which had started its screening that week itself. Satisfied that we had good seatings, we headed to El Migos for our brunch! We were starving so badly as it was almost 12 and we have yet taken our breakfast…
‘Fried’ — eggs are fried on both sides with the yolks broken until set or hard.
‘Over well’, also called ‘over hard’ or ‘hard’ — cooked on both sides until the yolk has solidified.
‘Over medium’ — cooked on both sides; the yolk is of medium consistency and the egg white is thoroughly cooked.
‘Over easy’, also called ‘runny’ — cooked on both sides; the yolk is a thin liquid, while the egg white is partially cooked.
‘Sunny side up’ — cooked only on one side; yolk is liquid. The egg white is often still rather runny as well.
I came across a person who requested an omelet with 5 big spoonful of diced onions, capsicums and tomatoes each. He mentioned that he loved vegetables and he requested the same serving for the following 3 days. I felt like I was making a vegetable roll instead of an omelet for him.
There are also health conscious people who requested no oil on the pan. The moment I heard the word no oil, I was like ‘O shit’….high chance the egg (especially the omelet) would stick to the pan!
Some would request only egg white omelet. An evil though just came in mind – I should request that in future to bring inconvenience to the cook who prepares it for me! (Nah!)
Since I am still a newbie, I have experienced a few embarrassing moments before. Care to know what?
Firstly, I busted yolks while flipping the egg over. People may wonder why this chef can’t flip an egg properly.
A couple of times, annoying people would just request their orders and walk away. This really can confuse the order especially when a few people does that at once. People! Please queue up… because some people
actually took others’ order and left the explanation part to me.
Once, the kitchen serviette tissue that was used to wrap around the handle of my pan caught fire from the stove’s flames. (The kitchen serviette tissue is to prevent the heat that transmitted upwards from burning my hand.) I quickly removed it and put out the flames by hand within a few seconds and threw it into the bin beneath me.
Beside that, I really love it when people gave me compliments about my nicely done omelet or fried eggs!
No harm praising the chef who did your eggs in future right? It will make his day happier too!

not want such high amount of sugar intake in a single day.

|After my 1st trip to Johor Bahru City Square, I am back again with another friend (within the same week).
Awkwardness as a typical food blogger usually post pictures of food and not selfies! Since my friend’s
priority was to colour his hair to cover up those greys, I decided to do mine too. There were like 5-6 hair
salons around and we randomly picked Reds Salon since my friend heard of that brand name before.
The salon seems to be rather packed and shorthanded that day and I spinned about on the chair while
waiting to be attended to. I regretted not taking a picture of myself while undergoing the dyeing process!
Not sure how fast it would take, but it was only like about 10 minutes or so before the hairstylist told me
that the colour had came out and would be ready to wash soon. I was like ‘So fast’?
|Another shot which I used as my FB display picture LOL. My hair was towards the gold-light brown while
my friend went for the brownish-red. At least we both were different!
|This was one yummy carrot cake stall which I bought my black carrot cake from. It was fried on the spot
and I waited only less than 10 minutes before having my packet of piping hot carrot cake.
