Couple of paracetamols and popcorn chicken

Waking up with sore head and disturbed tummy is never much of fun. 
It seemed like a good idea at the time. I'm quite good at being carried away too, which doesn't always help the situations.
But don't we all have those moments you just wish to stay with you for a little longer?
I feel... if I have another drink, it might just stay that way.

But all is not lost, surely.
Knowing it was all worth a headache, couple of paracetamols will have to do.
I'm still standing and we're still laughing. 
It was all a good fun. Thanks B. and, B.

Something substantial was a must! Thought it had to be something naughty to settle a teeny weeny bit delicate myself. 
It tasted good. All worth of an effort. 
I am good now.
I can face the world feeling quite alright.

Then, 'the 6 o'clock' came.
We used to call it beer o'clock. 
It felt mean to be called just that. Somewhat of less generous for Toby's loving gesture and effort. 
'The 6 o'clock' sounded much more suited for us, creatures of habit.
And every Sunday, 6 o'clock is exciting!

Smokey, jammy and a bit tangy. Breakfast club, We have got it just right!

Tori Kara Age with sweet potato chips

4 chicken thighs deboned and cut into chunks
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp mirin
1 tsp grated ginger
1 clove garlic, grated
1/4 tsp curry powder 
1 egg, lightly beat
3 tbsp corn flour
salt and pepper
1 sweet potato, cut into thin wedges
frying oil

In a large bowl, put chicken chunks, dried oregano, soy, mirin, grated ginger, garlic and curry powder. Season them with little bit of salt and pepper and leave them for 30 minutes to marinade.

Once ready, combine egg and corn flour into chicken.

All you need to do now is, to fry the chicken chunks and sweet potato chips until golden in very hot oil.
I like to fry the chips first. And usually I fry things twice to make them extra crispy.

Drain excess oil and serve them with light soy dip*.

* soy dip
2 tbsp soy
2 tbsp rice vinegar or cider vinegar
1/4 tsp sugar
1/2 lime juice
