Whilst everyone was busy preparing the food, I volunteered to cut the chilli — I must be crazy! Not knowing how bad the chilli burn could get as it was my first attempt, I used my fingers to scrap off the seeds!
Dotty: You “siao” ah, do you know that you will get chilli burns?
Me: Really? Mummy also uses her hands to do it! Don’t think it will be that bad right?
Lynne: Dont use you hands, Ive got gloves.
Me: Aiya, nevermind lah. Should be okay.
I never knew it could turn out so bad until I started scratching my nose while we were playing mahjong — It was real hot! The next thing that came to my mind was,
“Damn, how am I supposed to remove my lenses later tonight!!!”
As soon as I reached home, I thought of soaking my fingers in lemon juice but sadly, there werent any. Thank god there was lime but not many left though — only 3!!!
3 limes are definitely not enough for soaking my fingers. Hence, I took a few pieces of cotton wool, dipped into the lime juice and wrap it round my fingers!
Innovative ya ? =)
And just in case you run out of cotton wool, try this!
I’m full of shit — I know, haha!
