I have been a bit busy catching up with family and friends, and haven’t been drawing or painting. So, for Paint Party Friday, here are pieces I completed in Tai O Fishing Village in Hong Kong mid last year.
A skinny 4 storey house. The top (green section) of this house was used as a laundry room.
I wonder if this was a house. It resembled a surf rescue station. It was low tide, so there was no water below the house/building.
A beautiful old house which I think can be restored into a very lovely place.
Now to a totally unrelated topic…
Chinese New Year is celebrated in Malaysia in late January. My Mom and Sis-In-Law were busy in the kitchen making arrowroot chips, which is a popular snack made for the festival.
I help a little, but I was also taking photographs. Here is the finished product (above) which is crunchy and stores very well in airtight containers. If you are curious about how it is made, keep scrolling down. It is quite easy.
The arrowroot bulbs were washed and their skin peeled.
When using a slicer like the one above, leave the arrowroot stalks intact to be used as a handle while slicing.
Without adding any flavour, the slices were then deep fried in oil (I guess you can add some flavour if you like, but in this case, none was used).
