Jas, thanks for the recipe, I love this dish, so if I ever feel a need to make it myself, at least I know where to look for it. ;)

Aiyo...are you a cookbooks collector too? Looking at all the cookbooks you have, it does seem like it. I love looking at the mouth watering pictures in the cookbooks, so I know it can be addicting. *envy lah*
