Here have some chicken:
In case your wondering, the marks were actually made by putting the chicken on a metal rack since I find that roasting on a metal rack makes the chicken less oily and distributes the heat a little more evenly but it leaves those unsightly marks. The chicken was 'reverse' roasted, cause convention says to usually roast it breast side first but I find this makes the chicken kinda dry, so I roast it underbelly side first and then turn it around to brown the skin. Makes for juicy chicken :9 I guess this happens when you don't have a rotisserie attachment BUT our new microwave oven that we bought has that attachment, do I foresee more Roast Chickens in my future? :P
NYE was pretty cool! I did something real silly though, I left my phone at home so lots of angry people (from boss to kemu) were trying to get me the whole day. EEEK SORRY GUYS T_T
So the day started with me trying to get my hair dyed after work and well the hair stylist dyed my hair a god awful STRAWBERRY BLONDE when I had requested either an Ash Blonde or a greyish blonde. Anyway, in the end after bottles had been thrown around, scaring half the customers and wreckage on the table, the hair stylist agreed to give it to me half price and free treatment. The color actually was nice BUT not suitable on my skin tone and was NOT the color I had wanted.
Anyway I quickly rushed to Nao's party cause I was about an hour late. Met all the usuals and extra new friends (got their numbers too) Ironically Melissa is a high school mate of my ex!!!! She swore she had met me before aeons ago. Definitely gonna bring Melissa out and about, she LOVES German beer we can bermabuk-mabuk together!
Then I quickly headed over to Tokiyas and again met all the usual peeps. Then New Years happen and it was almost like an Anime scene. We heard the fireworks but couldn't see them since Toki lives in the heart of SS4 (a housing area) and we were sad so we all ran to the road and saw fireworks in between houses, then suddenly someone shouted "GO DOWN THE ROAD" and lo and behold there was an empty PADANG/FIELD (WTF?) in the middle of a residential area looking over the LDP Highway!!!! That was just so random! So we saw all the fireworks that were happening on this side of PJ. If we were wearing Yukatas it would had so been an anime scene.
Then I decided to fix my hair with Christy's help and now it is this lovely shade of light burgundy brown!!! I will eventually ONE DAY have Ash blonde hair but for now I'll be content with light Burgundy Brown.
Then today, I roasted a chicken for my co-workers gathering, got drunk on Herbal Chicken Soup and LOTS of Sangria. Man my co-worker makes a MEAN Sangria, it's so yummy and dangerous because you don't realize it's alcoholic till your on the floor saying "Oh my, the room is spinning" (I blame the combination of a fatal Raisin Wine Chicken Soup and Potent Sangria).
I hope your New Years was good too!
