Since hubby & I going to attend dinner party tonight, I decided to prepare this for my boy..... for his dinner. >o<  He will be over joy whenever I prepare western food for him cause his papa is not a western food person. haha..... I just grab whatever I have in the fridge. Wow.... didn't expect it turns out looking so amazingly delicious !  I gave one away to a friend and one for my boy.  And they both coming back asking for more. LOL
