The fabulous Paris Beaverbanks tagged me on this one a week ago and I haven’t really sat down to think of it. Perhaps, it is because I am actually quite contented (most of the time). There are, of course, things which I want (not needs, but wants) for my kitchen and these are the stuffs I am talking about:-


  1. A bigger kitchen (so that I have more space to move around and dance while waiting for the food to cook);
  2. An oven (preferably British) so that I can bake and roast food to my delight and add them to this site;
  3. A bigger refridgerator which consumes lesser amount of energy compared to the current one (which is quite an impossible request) so that I can stuff more stuffs inside;
  4. A full range of WMF stainless steel crockery (plus a bottle of stainless steel washer as well to keep’em shining);
  5. A full range of Zwiling knives so that I don’t have to cut food like using a jigsaw;
  6. A more powerful cooker hood which is suitable for Asian cooking (Asian cooking is notorious for its smokiness caused by stir fries)
  7. A cooker which blasts out fire like the tai chows (big fries) in town. Essentially, the bigger the fire, the more “wok breath” the dish will have which usually translates to nicer tasting food.
  8. A solid surface kitchen cabinet where I don’t have to use any chopping block…Bofi or Electrolux would be nice πŸ˜‰
  9. Ingredients available as and whenever I need them for cooking (this again, is wishful thinking);
  10. Nice set of dishes so that I can place my food and make it look good artificially. Many a time, a good looking plate makes the food look better!

There there. My list of 10s. But of course, they are not necessities. I admit that one of my favourite spots in shopping centres are the household sections especially kitchen and dining stuffs. I like to go through all the kitchen utensils and what-nots but almost always, never buy anything. Call me a cungent. LOL!

    Yay! Thanks for doing my tag πŸ™‚ I am nodding my head like crazy at No. 4 and 5. I presently use Aerogasz for my cookerhood and its doing great even for asian cooking. No fishy smells after frying fish! And as for No. 8 my parents just got a solid surface top – cannot chop cannot put hot things, cannot this cannot that… I’d stick with my cheapy compressed chipboard top anyday πŸ™‚

    paris : My wife and I did check out Aerogasz earlier but we settled on Rinnai. Not too bad lah. I’m puzzled the solid surface top cannot do this and that. It is supposed to be solid and can do this and that. Tak da takut the heat also.

    keropokman : Wah! Ha! Ha! I was expecting your reply vide your blog. I must go shop in S’pore for kitchen stuffs. I bought some small items (cutlery etc) previously and still think it was a great bargain. I don’t really fancy corelle because I think it looks too fragile. I like the Japanese designed plates. Absolute looker!

    tigerfish : Yes, a WANT. 10 WANTS rather. Tell your readers what you WANT lah πŸ™‚
