Happy 4th!


According to a write up on Washington Post, even though today is Independence Day, did you know that only two people actually signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th? They were John Hancock (excuse me: JOHN HANCOCK) and Charles Thomson. Most of the rest signed on August 2, but the last signature wasn't added until 5 years later. Something to talk about during the BBQ, picnic, or wherever you'll be today...

Though is not the regular long week-end holiday, today is the time for friends and family to get together in the summer heat for BBQ, ice-cold beverages, and catch up on the latest news and gossips before heading out to see the local fireworks display! Time for another fun-filled chow-down! Happy 4th to everyone as I devour another mushroom cheeseburger from the grill!

Reminds me of fried chives with sea-ham and tau geh.
I can imagine this omelette tastes really delicious. Chives are hard to get here. Is it similar in taste to the 'ku-chye' in Malaysia?

I'll just have the corn and forego the mushroom cheeseburger. The pointer in my bathroom scale shot up 3 kg! Summer makes me put on weight fast.

Hi Judy,
Ku chye is very similiar and wikipedia said it's the same thing. Tau geh and sea-hum sounds good with it too! :)

Hi Wonda,
LOL! You are so funny! Me too. Must make more salads soon! :)
