Yesterday was Malaysia Day and a public holiday. I wanted to wake up early and get going with my plans for the day but heck, I was still so tired when the alarm clock went off. I turned it off and went back to sleep.
My cat was meowing and whining outside my room. When I did not respond, she got annoyed and started scratching the floor. I could hear one of my parquet pieces coming loose and being flung about by my naughty cat. Ok..Ok...I get it... Mommy is getting up now. Haiz...
All this time, my cat after being fed, made herself very comfortable in the living room.
My late grandma used to make this starchy glue for my school art projects. But now I make it for myself to eat - as kimchi paste. Who knew one day I would be eating glue.
Mixed with blended onion, garlic and ginger, fish sauce, plum sauce and loads of Korean hot pepper flakes, it becomes kimchi paste.
I know for a fact that many of you dislike kimchi and think that it is awful. It is ok, I accept and respect your feelings about kimchi. In fact when I told my mum that I made kimchi, she was like...oh?...again?...is it really that nice? The less than enthusiastic response caused me to add my mum to the (long) list of people who dislike kimchi.
We are all different. We have different tastebuds. What I like, you may not like. Likewise, what you like, I might dislike. But I won't go as far as insulting what you like with expressions like yucks! or whatever it is you use to express your distaste.
So. Anyway. I am happy that I made two tubs of regular kimchi and another small tub of secret kimchi heh..heh...
Today, back at work, I went out for lunch at Rice & Pot Empire because I had purchased an eCard from Fave.
I paid RM69.60 for a value of RM100.00 which I will use to pay for my meals. I thought it was a good deal.
This came with the regular menu.
It was served before my noodles arrived. That's when I realized that the cendol came from elsewhere. The person who served me entered via the front entrance and collected RM4.50 from me. Oh, ok, the cendol is outsourced hah...hah...
Oh wow. It was good. Enough santan with adequate gula Melaka, That's how I ended up having dessert before my main meal.
Just as I was done with the cendol, my noodles arrived. I opted for the original bone broth (instead of tomato) with bursting meatballs and I added dumplings.
That was a very good lunch! I will be back for many more meals.
