Last week, I went to several shops to enquire if they sell this ‘glass paper’ or transparent high density PE paper which is safe for cooking.
I was in the Georgetown area and there are old, Chinese traditional grocery shops, old baking supplies shop and old Chinese crockery and cooking untensils shops. I figure they would know who actually sell this sort of paper because I am keen to try steaming herbal chicken this way.
Guess what most of them tell me? They asked me to go to the bookshop! I was in Carnavon Street which is famous for selling coffees to coffins and there are lots of old bookshops. I explained to all the old uncles and aunties that we cannot use that quality because it will kill us. But they are not amused.
So, anyone knows what you call this paper and where do I get them? And please don’t tell me the yim kok kai shops are killing us all using the stationery shops quality!
BTW, I am going to KL for a quick trip and won’t be posting for a couple of days. Therefore, I think I won’t have time to think of any easy, cheap, homecooked Valentine’s dinner menu. However, if you are desperate to impress your boyfriend, girlfriend, mother-in-law to be, grandmother-in-law to be, just look through the categories on the sidebar and find which type of cooking you like. Western, Chinese, local…I have them all. Times are bad, so do a homecook meal. It looks more sincere that way.
