Sweet & Sour Chicken

Nothing special today.I had a lot of work in the office.I've to prepare 8 copies of updated company profile for main company & its subsidiary ASAP.A lot of things to revise & update.A lot of things to photocopy, print & retype.Gosh,i'm so bz until i forgot i haven't had my lunch.When we are so bz,we tend to forget almost other things including eating & as soon as we finish our job,then we can hear our stomach growls.
By 7pm, i left the office with my table like a war zone.Luckily i've my own room,so other people can't see the mess.As usual,the last person the leave.At first i thought of buying burger sold in front of my office.Then i guess,its better i go back home & have something healthy & satiated instead.
On the way back home,i stop at the mini market & bought some chicken.Easy & fast to cook.Thinking of what to cook,finally i decided to cook 'ayam masam manis' using this recipe by Kak Liza.
