One Good Thing A Day – Project Day 72 – Krupuk *^_^*

Krupuk is one of my favourite snacks around *^_^*

They are deep fried crackers (much like fluffy rice crackers) from Indonesia. Usually prawn flavoured, there are actually many different types available.

We decided to make some and ooh……how delicious they were!

“designer” doesn’t equal “good”

Apologies for not writing lately, since I’ve been busy working yet again.

I was given a fashion-related topic to write about and came across the most disgusting Louboutin shoes that I have ever seen:

After observing these things, I decided to look through the site to see what else was available and was shocked to find other monstrous creations that men and women are supposed to wear.

I quickly realized that I’ve seen several of those styles on the streets of Tokyo (of course).

I also realized that many people still don’t understand that not all designers have good taste at times and just because a “big name” is attached to something, doesn’t mean it should be purchased or worn.

If you know of other fashion crimes, please comment below!

Final though:

If you have the money to burn on terrible designer shoes, why not choose to do something better with it? Buy a pair of pretty shoes for less than half of what Louboutin charges and donate the rest to those in need!

Chicken Bok Choy Pasta Recipe



We had some leftover baby bok choy and I wanted to make something quick and easy, so I decided on a really simple pasta that we both love. I don’t really have solid measurements (as usual with my recipes) so just consider this as a great “leftovers” mix up.

You will need:

2 cups pasta (any will do)

1 large boneless/skinless chicken breast

3 bunches of baby bok choy

4-5 cloves of garlic (we love garlic)

1 small white onion

3-4 tablespoons olive oil

1 heaping tablespoon of dried basil

Salt and Pepper to taste

optional: shichimi (Japanese seven spice mix)

1 – Cook pasta al dente.

2 – Chop the onion and garlic.

3 – Cube the chicken into 1 inch pieces.

4 – Drain pasta and place in a large bowl.

5 – Heat olive oil in the cooking pot and add onions.

6 – Cook onions until clear then add garlic and dry basil.

7 – Cook for approximately 30 seconds and add chicken cubes with salt and pepper (and shichimi if you like).

8 – Continue to cook for a couple of minutes making sure to stir often.

9 – Add pasta, stir until thoroughly mixed.

10 – Serve hot and enjoy.
