My Scary Mysterious Visitors

This incident happened a few months ago. I was waiting for my brother to pick me up in the morning when I spotted something very strange on my kafir lime plant. It looked like a black mass of something.

Spare Parts Noodles

I discovered a noodle shop, Wan Xiang Noodles@Damansara Uptown, but never took the initiative to step inside. This shop is located along the shop houses where The Ship is. My brother also took notice of this eatery and after our dinner at The Ship, we walked in.

So Bloody. So Good.

One evening my brother surprised me with a suggestion for dinner. We already met up for lunch and a movie the previous weekend but I certainly do not mind having another makan session with him.

Sweet and Sour Pomfret

What? Fish again? Well, I had two pomfrets hibernating in the freezer. One became Ikan Goreng Sambal Lebur while its companion was turned into Sweet and Sour Fish.

Bingsu, Anyone?

I have always been curious about Bingsu, the Korean shaved ice dessert. I see pictures of it plastered in cafes and places that specialize in Bingsu and they do look pretty attractive.

Ikan Goreng Sambal Lebur (Fried Fish with Sambal Lebur)

After I did a post on Sambal Lebur, my mum whatsapp me asking for the recipe. You know you have arrived when your mum asks you for recipe and not the other way around wahahaha!!

Horror Movie Date

It was nearing the weekend and I wanted to watch a horror movie. Stress relief lah as I had to work that Saturday. I usually book my ticket a day or two earlier but for this movie I hesitated.

Nasi Goreng Sambal Belacan

Yay! Carb fest! hee..hee..hee... If I am going to have a cheat day with rice, it might as well be a nasi goreng and better still, not any nasi goreng but Nasi Goreng Sambal Belacan.

Cow Cow (Closed)

After lunch the other day, I decided to walk around Damansara Uptown as a form of exercise. Hah! It was not a very hot day owing to the rain earlier.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

I am so determined not to just look at the photos in my cookbooks. So I made an effort to cook another recipe from it. Sweet and Sour Meatballs. Easy peasy, right?

Traditional Malay Curry

I am no authority on curries, Malay or otherwise. That's what it said on the packaging, Gulai Melayu Tradisional. So I took it as good and for the first time, tried a recipe printed on a spice packaging.

The Chap Fan Lady Freaked Out

Whenever I go and eat chap fan, the lady boss never speaks to me beyond telling me the price to pay. Not that she is snobbish or anything.

Sambal Lebur

I am always on the lookout for sambal recipes, especially the easy ones that require no exact measurements where you can simply chuck stuff, blend and then simply saute the whole lot in the wok.

A Minty Coleslaw

When my mum visited recently, she brought me two containers of Kemangi/Selasih seeds (from my dad's garden).

I Fell In Love

One morning I was greeted by these Adenium flower buds. And then I was greeted with more blooms. This is a good sign, no? Love is in the air! So who did I fall in love with?

What Do You Want To Eat, Darling?

"Ai chiak hamik?" (what do you want to eat? He didn't say darling, that was just wishful thinking on my part) my partner asked me one Friday evening. "Lu ai chiak hamik?" (what do you want to eat?) I asked him back.

Mongolian Chicken

Or is this Thai chicken? I ask because the sauce is made with Thai chili sauce. So how is it Mongolian? Never mind. Asal sedap, sudah.

Curry Laksa vs Japanese Laksa

Just in case you thought that I am so good for staying on a low carb diet, I do deviate from time to time. I was badly behaved one particular day.

Go Noodles No Noodles

Who does that, right? Go into a noodle shop and tell them you don't want noodles.

I Hope You Are Not Having Your Breakfast Now

Or lunch or dinner while reading this. That's because I want to talk about poop. Caterpillar poop. Look what I found one morning. Nestled on my Adenium leaf were one, two, three, four droppings. Eeeuwww!!!

A Lunch and Movie Date

With the brother last weekend. It's great that the two of us can still spend time with each other in our adulthood.
