Recreating Alvin's childhood memory

Me and Alvin was drooling from Alvin's (from Masterchef :D) invention test winning dish 'Drunken chicken and Bruised snake bean salad, so we had to try it ourselves!!!

Drunken chicken - surprisingly very easy to cook - and so delicious!!
[We took the skin off the chicken cuz we both don't like boiled chicken skin :D - AY]

Bruised snake bean salad - we weren't quite sure about eating raw snake beans, but it was actually really good.

Poached Pear with Vanilla ice cream - we prepared this especially for Linda and Andy, cause we thought they were to going to join us for dessert, but they end up choosing movie over this :P
[ :D Probably a good move considering this looks a lot better than it tastes]
