Baked/Oven Grilled Lemongrass Chicken Wings

A super easy and super lazy recipe – baked chicken wings! Actually come to think of it, I never really bother to cook this when I was in Malaysia.

Stir-Fry Aspagus with Sambal Belachan and Prawn

I’ve been buying asparagus recently every time I go to the market.
