Looks like elephant?
Beef Brisket marinated with rosemary, salt, pepper. sous vide for 24 Hours, 63degC. The beef did not survive the ordeal before having the chance to get seared or torched.

HMMMMMMMMMmmmmmm. The students preferred the rosemary seasoned variant over the cumin seasoned variant. Only MT likes the beef seasoned with cumin seeds. I like both actually, but rosemary is still my top most favourite. I am so obsessed with it to the point of making the decision to name my first daughter after rose-mary. HEHEHE

I found an unused holder lying around and decide to rig it to hold my CHEAPO vacuum pump cum plastic bag sealer.
Just a note, some recipe from internet calls for using 146 deg F, or 63.3 deg C. I just conveniently punch my calculator, made a mistake and arrive at 73 deg C for the first 10Min.

DIY D3 soulstone USB drive

My Student ThianB just bought the Collector's Edition for Diablo3. This game is all on the rage now. Well, the last time when i was playing D1 and D2, I still remember how obsessed I am with the game mechanism. Weirdly, D3 does not attract me that much.

After seeing ThainB posted his spoils online, I gave him a ring and request for a T-Loan. Shamelessly telling him that it is just a piece of plastic and I can and going to make a replica of the soulstone.  LOL
BEHOLD, soulstone and diablo in their full glory. The artwork of these 2 pieces of plastic toy are really well defined and detailed to the last milimeter. I first started out to use art-clay/plasticine to make a mold.
I found out that the material is too hard and not malleable on the surface. Hence loosing some of the detail or I risk breaking apart the toy.

As for the setting agent, I am using this GlobalCast A-B, balance from my previous project.

Pour 1:1, and then mixed thoroughly. It will set in 1hour time and takes 24hour to cure completely. Make sure all the safety precautions are observed. Such as wearing of gloves, safety goggles and proper foot wear.

Before pouring the mixed solution into the mold, ensure that there is no seepage. Take a look at my poor art work.

The mixed solution will turn from clear, to opaque and finally to white. Let it sit for 24hours before releasing from the mold.

Taking them out from the mold. It need some glue and filling off the rough edges.

Now, it is awaiting for a fresh coat of paint to look like the real McCoy, just to TROLL ThianB. LOL

DIY sous vide partII

As mentioned by me previously on my new found interest in sous vide cooking. The vacuum pump mechanism used by me was totally primitive. The air in the sealable plastic bag was sucked out by mouth. eewwwwww...

Using of a handheld vacuum cleaner is possible, but the cost of it at $99 put me off. The local surplus do carry it, but the condition of it is really horrible and certified not food worthy (by me).

I was so occupied with work last month, going down to Sim Lim Square (SLS) was a luxury. No luck with the local computer stores too. Finally, my calls for a USB vacuum cleaner was answered. It only cost me SGD9 from a friend that help me get from SLS. I get to pass the leather shoe cost to him. teeheeeheee.

Using the USB vacuum cleaner powered by the computer's USB port, only very very small particles such as bits from the food I ate, dust particles and strands of hair could be picked up. I tried the stock  USB vacuum cleaner with the re-sealable plastic bag, hardly any air could be suck out by the shorty snout. The DC motor in it was not working hard enough. Time to do some quick hack!

Knowing that USB ports supply 5V and up to 200mA only. If the DC motor in the USB vacuum cleaner to be revving at a even higher RPM, more current need to be supplied to it. Furthermore, the stock "snout" of the device is flat, restricting air flow. So my quick hack would be 1. modify an extended snout to allow more air flow, and 2. up the voltage and current.

The extended "snout" was made with courtesy of Mr.Bean drinks stall, which supplied me with the large diameter drinking straw, some hot glue and a cable tie, I am a good to go. I also made some USB connector to DC female jack to make use of a wall power supply, and DC male jack to 9V battery holder.


 I can't wait to get it turn on.....but wait. What should I experiment with for this modified USB vacuum cleaner? I simply took a small metal cup an shoved it in the bag and start the DC motor with 9V 800mA.

Listen to the sound of JOY!

Now, the yummy for the tummy portion.
Sous vide chicken breast on the cheap
1. 1pcs chicken breast (with or without skin)
2. salt and pepper to taste
3. pack in the bag with some herbs and vacuum it.
4. sous vide at 60deg C for at least 2 hours.

                                             tender, juicy,
                                           chicken breast with skin and breast bone seasoned with cumin seeds
                                       sous vide 60deg C for 2hours minimum

                                       look at the perfect PINK.

NEXT, I am working towards the holy grail of sous vide, the perfect steak.
