Prima Taste Singapore Chilli Crab

Polly recommended this Prima Taste Singapore Chilli Crab to me quite a while ago. Oh it must have been like 6 months ago. I had this in the storeroom and been procrastinating in trying out this product. I have never cook a crab at home before and I shudder at the thought of killing a live crab. I finally got down to do it. Well, I did not have the cut and clean the crab. I got the shop where I bought the crabs from to do it for me.


The Chilli Crab turned up pretty good and very easy to cook. The whole family really enjoyed it. The creamy and spicy gravy goes superbly well with steam rice. It is also great with just bread and the gravy.


  • 1 package of Prima Taste Singapore Chilli Crab paste
  • 3/4 cup peanut or vegetable oil
  • 1 – 1.2 kg crab
  • 2 small eggs
  • 500ml water (divided into 470ml & 30ml)
  • Coriander leaves for garnishing


The Prima Taste Singapore Chilli Crab package consists of:

Baked Custard

I made a Baked Custard for the Gilmore Park Church potluck. I got this from one of the recipes I had been collecting over the past few years. Most of the recipes in my collection had never been used before. I just enjoyed collecting them. They are so handy especially when I want to look for new stuff to try with the existing ingredients I have at hand.

I like this recipe because of the simplicity of the name. “Bake” is good because it is convenient and the least messy to make. “Custard” in any form is good and the very name itself is exactly what I wanted … something sweet.

This Baked Custard is flavoured with ginger and vanilla. It is a very simple and quick dessert. Preparation time is only a few minutes.


This recipe requires only 6 ingredients.

  • 1 tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger

Itty Bitty Cheeseburger

Suanne is supposed to blog this entry. She and I had the agreement that I blog the dine-out entries when she handles the recipes and food reviews. I somehow got conned into agreeing to blog this. Don’t know how that happened. As usual, she had a certain charm she employs to get the way she wants things done. So here it is.

Suanne bought a new type of burgers called Itty Bitty Cheeseburgers from Costco last week. These are mini-sized burgers. We like the novelty of such small burgers. Seems like a fun food and great for parties — perfect as finger food.


From the picture above, it does seem a lot like regular burgers. The texture of the bun, cheese and the patty looks great. It’s quite juicy, tender and savory. We know that Arkensen and Nanzaro would love this. What more it’s something they could make themselves if they want to have a quick snack.
