Food Friday : Fish & Chips

As I am siting here, staring at this very delicious Fish & Chips (not cheap..) I had in Denbenhams, Oxford.
Yummy - yum yum...
My all time favourite - oily and deep-fried, hey, its not that bad - there are peas!

Nowadays, good (cheap) Fish & Chips in Malaysia is hard to find.
Due to cost factor, businesses started cutting cost on the most important ingredient - the FISH!
Most of the time it is either tilapia or dory fillet.
Tilapia makes me puke because of the "sandy soil taste"
Dory taste like "soaked toilet paper"

Now, I can only dream..


Today's Friday - our PM will be announcing the Budget 2011 in the afternoon.
Now, don't he dare to announce cuts on healthcare or introduce certain silly national health scheme that'll never work (like GST, hey surprise - it has been postponed again!)!

Oh ya - to my my friends, hairy or not-so or not-at-all :-
"Have a great Weekend"

Hey cat lover, thanks for the wish for Jaja. Jaja has been begging me for a kitten but I know nothing about raising one :-/ Perhaps I can get some info from you later. (We prolly gonna get one).

Btw, have u tried Magnificent Fish & Chip at Cangkat Bukit Bintang? They said the f&c there is equally scrumptious as made in Londres :-D

It's Friday!! It's Fish and Chips day and as I'm a veggie I just indulge with my yummy chips with salt and vinegar!! Yum, yum, yum!

Oh good luck with the budget - here in the UK we are facing horrid budget cuts - mainly in public services too - booooooooo!!!
And me being political: considering it was the banks/private sector who mucked up the economy in the first place by being so greedy I find it horrendous that it's the public services who are facing the deepest cuts because of them!!! Booooooo!!! :-)

I think I better have my chips now!!!!

Take care and have a great weekend too!!!

Those fish and chips look so YUMMY!

Don't talk to me about GST and now HST....GST was a 7% national tax, some provinces now have HST, which combines the national and provincial taxes (here in Ontario, it's 13% total) and we pay it on pretty much everything. Huge cash grab by the provincial govt because of their over-spending, yadda yadda.

The best Fish N Chips is always in UK. They're the best. Can't find any equivalent in M'sia. The batter, the fish, and then there's the vinegar sprinkled onto the chips...yum-yum.

It's only 9 AM here and Mommy is salivating at those fish-n-chips! There is a "real" British pub here in Vegas that she's gonna have to try, someday.

Hi Bin! Those fish and chips do look tasty (I will pass on the peas though!) It is too bad you can't get good ones in Malaysia - have you ever thought about making your own? It is not difficult (though it can take a while to fry it all up) and that way you can pick your own fish! Hmm, I need to do that soon - I put myself in the mood even!

I hope the budget announcement is good and if they have to do some cuts that it won't be for healthcare!

Have a great weekend!
