Stir-fried Chilli Squids
I've been quite busy these few days as I've start to pack my luggages for the trip back to Singapore, and at the same time, I'm also rushing to finish a few sewing projects that I have on hand. On top of that, I have to bake 3 more recipes chosen for TWD in January within these few days. I can only blame myself for being a procrastinator, as there are certain tasks that I should've done beforehand. Anyway, what I can do at the moment is to continue with the leftover tasks at full force and hopefully I can complete everything on time. :-P
In the mean time, here's a recipe of stir-fried chilli squids, happy cooking!
