Spice! and RIP=RELEASE

My current favourite Vocaloid song: Spice! by Kagamine Len. A very very very sexy song involving jealousy and a little incest between Rin and Len! I am not pro incest but I love Len here: so cool and naughty and dangerously cute!

Love Ruka’s RIP=RELEASE as well! Her voice suits the song very well.

Do you follow Vocaloid’s music? What’s your favourite song?

Making sushi

Sushi is perhaps the only dish that I can make perfectly! Made some maki and California sushi a week ago with random fillings (sausage/crab stick/tuna mayo).

Not many people know this I believe: the secret to perfect sushi rice is to mix the rice with Japanese rice vinegar and sugar. Not salt. You don’t have to add in exact amounts! Just stir them in well and sample the taste every now and then and add more sugar or vinegar if necessary. You should aim to have sushi rice that is a little stronger in flavour than your liking.

A good thing about sushi is that you can have any fillings you like. Since rice goes with most things, as long as you don’t add something out of the ordinary, the sushi should turn out to be delicious!

My favourite fillings include tuna mayo, avacado, sausage, pickled carrot and raw fish. It’s hard for us to get fresh fish so I have never made sushi with raw fish before. Back in Hong Kong, we don’t usually make sushi because good sushi can be found easily and there is a huge variety available. In the UK, however, it’s a completely different story although it is getting better. How’s the sushi in your area?
