Putting on kilos is so easy... but to shed is so HARD!!!! especially after I hit the big FOUR ZERO years ago...*sigh*... having low metabolism plus I noticed that it gets slower with age...  makes everything doubly hard for me to lose that unwanted kilos...
So yeah... am avoiding deep fried food for now ...

**Care to share with me your secret?? on how you maintain or lose the unwanted kilos and to boost metabolism???**

I have been invited to submit this post to Aspiring Bakers #28: Chicken Feast (February 2013) hosted by Small Small Baker... thank you for the invite :D

  1. Hi Lisa
    These looking really good and delicious ~ no doubt about it. I guess this was finished in no time.

  2. Scrumptious! A wonderful way of preparing chicken drums and wings.



  3. These drumettes and wings so inviting. I am sure they are very flavorful. Love the photos.

  4. i have been craving nam yue chicken the whole week! even bought my first bottle of nam yue 2 nights ago ^^ but of course, i wasn't thinking right! i can't deep fry ^^|| you don't suppose i could bake this? :p your nam yue chicken looks too temptingly scrumptious! i really must stop looking at food posts at night!!! ^^

    1. I guess you could bake them... perhaps bake at 200C for at least 40 mins (and flip over after 25 minutes)
      Let me know the outcome OK? :D
