We are different, Man and Woman


Date: 4th March 2013
ANNOUNCEMENT OF WINNER
The cook for the meal is QUAY LO
and the winner is Arthur Wee 

I love to start my day laughing! Today, my son Nick shared a video titled “The tale of two brains” which I would love to share with you all. This is hilarious and yet so familiar and TRUE! After watching the video with my Quay Lo, he commented that we should watch this video each time before we start an arguement. LOL!

Now, tell me you did not laugh watching it. Surely we all recognize that the inter-relationships of men & women have been a main theme of comedy for a long time. What makes this comedian special is his comic delivery skills, and his reflections of truth, so familiar to us. In other words, with comic skills like timing, word emphasis, body language, and facial features, he delivers that splendid comical moment where we get to laugh at ourselves, and trust me, there is nothing quite so funny.

Yes, men and woman are very different but if no difference, how? We know the difference is a valid construction of preserving the species. But how about preserving our sanity? The differences extend into all parts of our normal lives and routines. In fact I read an article that even with cooking, men and women approach things quite differently.  You might want to go to this link and read more. The article gives an insightful observation about the difference between men and woman through the art & science of cooking. One significant difference is; (quote) “Women chefs cook with their hearts and souls, while male chefs cook with their head and their private parts.”  Go ahead, I know you are going to click the link now. Don't worry, this will be here when you get back. And when you do I will have a little challenge for you.

So how about having some fun and playing a little guessing game? Who did you think cooked the dishes below by looking at the photos. Quay Lo or Quay Po? The first person who guesses right will get a surprise gift. Guessing will closed at 12 midnight on 3rd March 2013. The winner will be announced on Monday, 4th March 2013.

Here are the hints:
It is a Japanese fusion dinner. Appetizer was grilled scallop and cold soba with dashi . The main dish that followed was a duo scampi of salmon & prawn, with cabbage and carrot salad with sesame, ginger and sweet sauce dressing. Each seafood element was done perfectly.

(The photos were taken with my iphone under florescent light so not the best possible but that should not hamper your view too much.)

  6. Also, read the articles. If competing the generalization then my cooking might be perceived as 'male' judging by the never subtle use of spice, heavier flavour and not so precise plating. Lol
