I have been busy lately. Time flies quickly. I am already into the sixth week of Semester 2. And it is Reading Week this week meaning there is no class, no lecture to attend and no lab session. Reading Week is designed for us students to revise what we have covered so far. So, in order not to be left out and as an early preparation for the coming Exam after the Easter holidays, it is only wise to do the revision now. Well, I did and still am revising - which means I have a lot more questions to ask the lecturers the coming week than before. And I have progressed in my Minitab exercises too - too bad my 30 day trial period will be over tomorrow. Anyway, life has to go on - Minitab or no Minitab. Why do I bother so much about Minitab? Because the Minitab application will carry 60% of the overall 5QM assessment.
Well, enough for that. One of my husband's colleagues at the Two Sisters Factory is Abbas - He came to Dundee about 7 years ago - right from the foot of K2 in Pakistan. His full time job? Hmm... he's a Chef with The Gulistan House. My husband had on numerous occasions told me how good his briyani and pilao rice are. To which I made no comment - he is a Chef - of course he cook good food. Hey! I never tasted his briyani or pilao rice before....
But yesterday, my husband managed to kidnap him from the comfort of his home to our little kitchen. And, guess what? We (my husband rather) managed to get a first hand free cooking lesson from the kind Chef. And the verdict? I have never tasted a pilao rice so soft and tasty - Abbas also taught my husband how to cook Chicken Curry (yeah.... the one without coconut milk which we were used to back home). The Curry? Fantastic. Would you like a peek?

Well, due to our enthusiasm of trying Abbas' pilao and curry, none of us remember to take any snap of the food on our plate! Burrrppp!!!
