Me and My Sambal Recipe on Camera

I hate being on camera; I get really awkward, my voice never sounds right, my face never looks right, my body doesn't feel right. But a very good friend of mine requested this for her birthday so I made a video, and now I think I'll share it with everybody anyway because I haven't blogged this week and I owe you all something.

It's a good alternative for those lazy to read recipes, plus I share a couple of tips that I didn't write about. I must say I wholeheartedly understand and agree if you rather not hear me awkwardly rattle on in front of the camera. You can read my sambal recipe here in the original blog post instead.

Ok here it is, cringe.

  1. That's was a lot of fun Shu! Informative with a good sense of humor and you still got some of your artwork in. Well done!

  11. Fantastic, amusing and such an original video, Shu Han! Congratulations! I hope we will see more of these in the future. I see now I have no excuse to delay sambal making (even the fact that I don't find belachan here).
