  Get it right..
Just watched a few episodes of “Heart of Greed”, it is really worth to watch.

For further information on “Heart of Greed”, please check out at Heart of Greed

Heart of Greed is Hong Kong drama serial, a show about a family that owns a sea products store stirred up bouts of greed – for food, that is – in me. So I decided to check out some cookbooks to satiate my cravings.

In my course of research and some information from magazines, I came across several interesting tips and tricks about food storage, preparation and presentation. Here are some of them:

 Wrap celery in aluminium foil before placing it in the refrigerator, it will keep for weeks
 If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it’s still cooking, drop in a peeled potato to absorb the excess salt
 When a recipe calls for oil, garlic and onions to be added to a pan, always add the garlic last. This keeps it from burning and tasting bitter.
 When ice cream is rock-hard, dip the scoop in hot water to make scooping easier
 To keep marshmallows from turning hard, store them in the freezer. When they thaw, they feel and taste perfectly fresh.
 Store tomatoes with their stems facing down, and they will stay fresh longer.
 Do not place potatoes and dry onions together as each gives out a gas that will shorten the life of the other.
 Instead of boiling vegetables, steam them to retain more nutrients and crispiness.
 For perfectly clean-cut slices of cheesecake, briefly run a thin-bladed knife through an open flame, then cut. Wipe the blade and reheat between cuts.

Feeling very frustrated, one thing that cannot be done at night is to practise my piano. Staying in HDB flats, we are constrained by the space. Sometimes I can hear angry voice from my neighbours or playing mahjong. Thus, it’s impossible to make a noise in the middle of night.

Sadly, I don’t have Silent Series Piano. It would be great to have one especially in Singapore. Silent Series Pianos are real acoustic pianos, with the facility to silence the strings and listen to a digital piano via headphones.
