Hoi Sin and sweet chili marinade

I made this up a few weeks ago in a search for something tasty to do with some chicken legs I had. And WOW! I must say, I was pretty impressed with the outcome. I didn't measure quanitites, but when I tried to reproduce it yesterday, it came out just as good. It was also quite tasty just brushed over some chicken thigh fillets while they grilled and as a stirfry sauce with some sliced pork loin and lots of veges.
Here it is: Just mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
Approximately equal quantities of Sweet Chilli Sauce, Hoi sin and Kajup Manis.
A small sprinkle each of ginger powder and chinese five spice powder.
A little garlic oil.

That's it! So simple and delicious. Adjust the quantities to taste. I am sure there would be other ways to use this sauce. Pehaps with some nice calamari or king prawns. Or as a dipping sauce for vegetarian rice paper rolls. Oooh, the possibilities are nearly endless,
