~Be a master chef at home with Lee Kum Kee~

I have always hear friends telling me "oh I can't cook ! " no time to cook after work !" " Too difficult to cook ". way too many times .

Really!? It doesn't have to be so :) With Lee Kum Kee menu oriented packet sauces ,anyone can prepare tasty dishes as easy as 1.2.3 ! We witnessed how convenient and how simple it is to prepare 3 dishes n 1 soup in 30 mins by chef Edwin Lau just last week :) With these ready made sauces, each dishe can be completed in just 3 easy steps, allowing everyone to become master chefs in their own right :)

Last week, Alex and I joined so blogger friends at the Civil Service Club where Lee Kum Kee introduces 5 new variants of sauces to their existing 19 other flavors!

With 126 years of history and through relentless efforts in quality and innovation, Lee Kum Kee has come a long way. I am sure many of our mothers and families have one or two or even more bottles of Lee Kum Kee sauces and condiments in their kitchens and fridges :) Go take a look !

So many different grades of oyster and soya sauces to choose from..
wide range of condiments , XO sauce and packet sauces.

Doesn't this yet to be launched new packagin 
for the oyster sauce looks good! ? 
It is very easy to use and minimizes spillage and leakage
