Great Chinese food, Live music & attempting to cook Haianese Chicken

last night was the second part of M's bday present, the Chris Cornell concert at Perth Concert Hall. The first part of M's present was kind of a flop (We had tickets to the Sevendust gig which had been cancelled and we didnt know. Had a few drinks, got all dressed up, forked out money for a taxi.....only to get there and theres a man in a car with fliers saying "Sorry - cancelled") but we have since replaced those tickets with Foo Fighters tickets (Im midly - ok - a lot more impressed by that idea!)

We started the evening at the Hong Kong BBQ house in Francis STreet Northbridge.
Awesome. Authentlic amazing Cantonese food. Heaven.
We had the combination BBQ meat platter and noodles with crab meat sauce.

So, back to the lead singer from the bands Soundgarden and Audioslave as well as a successful solo career.
Oh - MI - GOD
Chris can sing just as good as he did back in the 90s and is charismatic to boot. He definately had the audience in the palm of his hand, taking requests shouted out in between songs from the audience. At one point he came downstage, front of mics and played/sang one song completely acoustically with no mics. The concertr hall is well enough designed that we could still hear him. AMAZING!

Great night!

Now, with a hankering for chinese food, I am attemting to create one of my favs from childhood, Haianese Chicken with Chicken rice and chicken broth.
using this recipe minus the rice wine which I didnt have
Hainanese chicken rice

The kitchen now has chicken stock and ginger from one end to the other...but hopefully it will turn out ok otherwise all these hours in the kitchen will have been for nothing! No really, I will enjoy it, thats what matters the most!
