I believe he failed his chemistry. :-( he'll boom my kitchen if i let him loose in the kitchen. *sigh*

Anyway, I'm really gonna try this Siew Ngor recipe, looks really easy and yummy to boot. But, I wonder where i can get these spices. Can it be replaced with curry powder?

Pete said...

Cleff : Aiyo,curry powder totally different from five spice powder but I think I might try that someday. Maybe it will turn out nice! LOL
You can get this brand of five spice powder in Tesco. I got mine from Tesco Mutiara D'sara.
