Fun event coming this Sunday. See below.
I see Grant Sundee Murata in the picture below – center back row, looking so serious. I met Grant at Ward Centre Marukai a coupla months ago. Really down-to-earth good fun guy da buggah.
Told him I saw him on Youtube making andagi on Sam Choy’s show.
“I like da way you squeeze da baddah from da hand into da boiling oil… and you neva measure da flour fo make da baddah. Just keep pouring and mix until get da right consistency.” He just laughs. “No can just follow da recipe… no goin come out right.” (Da buggah speak pretty good pidgin.) So we just stood around in the aisle blocking people trying to walk by and kept talk’n story for about 45 minutes. Good fun was!
