Masterchef addiction

I am so sad that Masterchef has finally come to an end. Now I no longer have 7.00 pm shows to look forward too. Boohoo. T_T It took Aus by a craze: People taking about it at work; Pastors talking about it at church...

Masterchef Australia gives amateur, budding chefs with no prior professional cooking experience the ultimate once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop their cooking skills, to be mentored by the best, and ultimately make a change in their lives. I'm usually not a reality show person but this is an exception because IT IS about food. :P

I have always been rooting for Poh (pic above) simply because she's from Adelaide and she's a Malaysian born Chinese. She has introduced otak-otak, century egg, abacus seeds and squid ink cubik noodles to field and has unleashed a whole new world of culinary experience to the Aussies. Her being crowned the first Masterchef would have made us as a Malaysian, Chinese and Adelaidian proud. Second place is pretty great I suppose.

After seeing these pictures, there's no way you don't want to watch the show. Please ensure your stomach is filled beforehand.
