  2. Woohoohoo… take picture of “bawang merah” (red onion)…!

    Same applies to horseradish/wasabi.

  3. Giant Sotong,
    Lucky I do not eat those.

    You are welcome.

    Actually, I got extra ingredients into my nostril.

  4. I had my fair share of onion peeling experience as a restaurant helper many light moons ago And I know what its like to have teary eyes and when not to pick your nostrils! 🙂
    And another huahaha… a delay laughing reaction to bawangmerah and bawangputeh suanie replies! :))

    If you do not mind the stinging in the eyes…

    I am getting smarteer by the day. 😀

    I will try that. Thanks for the tip.

    You are an expert onion peeler now huh!


  6. If you wear contact lenses while peeling onion, you will not have teary eyes. ;-))

  7. run some water over the onions first. i find that by doing this, my eyes don’t tear up when i chop onions.

    as for nose-picking, do not pick your nose when preparing food of any sort :p
