Dinner Party!!

Hello all, yet again I've disappeared from the blogger world and have gone into hiding in my own little planet. I certainly owe a few of you ladies reviews on products you've left comments and emails about, I will definitely get around to them, so do bare with me.

I was tagged by Mrs Dumpling, Tammi from The culture Enthusiast, ShopN'Chomp, Ena from Shanghainese Dumpling and Blovet Beauty to invite you all over for a virtual dinner party.

The question is: If you are going to allow us to spend a night at your home, we'd like to know the following:

1. What books are on your favorite shelf?
Well firstly, my books are stored everywhere from a shelf to a cupboard as I just don't have enough space in my tiny apartment to have too many book shelves. I wouldn't say I have a favorite as yet, but I do like 'The Little Prince by Antoine De Saint-Exupery, and I enjoy reading from authors like Xinran, Haruki Murakami and Toni Parsons.

2. What DVDs are on your favorite shelf?
Besides my love for shoes, cosmetics and so forth, movies certainly has a special place in my life that takes up quite a lot of my time LOL, I can go for hours on end, watching one after another.

'The shawshank redemption', 'The Reader', 'Match Point', 'Infernal Affairs' and 'Always' just to name a few that I like. As for drama series goes- Friends, The Cosby Show, SATC, Hotel Babylon. TVB series- 'In the chamber of Bliss 蔡鍔與小鳳仙' (no it's not porn LOL) and 'Rosy Business 幗梟雄'.

3. What are your two favorite cookbooks?
I don't have any favorites, as I search for recipes on the internet.

4. Select 1-3 recipes you will cook for your special guests.
Thai pomelo salad;
Steamed hairy crabs;
Wagyu steak with mixed vegies and new potatoes;
I'll attempt to make desert like the following pic...yeh rite- I'll probably go and buy it instead.

5. What will we be drinking that's available?

Red/White wine from Chile, Veuve Clicquot bubbly, Lychee martini cocktail, Whiskey, and for those who prefer the non-alcohol I'll serve some juice, ice-tea and I'll hand you a can of coke.
I hope you all leave with smiles on your face and invite me over to your gaff for some yummy food.

A Big Thank You to Amy and Blovet Beauty for awarding me the 'Hottest Female Blogger' and last but not least Midtown Girl for awarding me the 'One Lovely Blog Award', thank you dear ladies.

Have a Good Weekend!!
