Fat Elvis and An Old Boyfriend

Today is the first day of Hari Raya Aidil Fitri. Selamat Hari Raya to all my Muslim fellow bloggers and readers!

It is very quiet in my neighborhood because Hari Raya visitation is prohibited under MCO 3.0. This morning while gardening I heard some chatter from a few houses away. My Malay neighbor's kids were up about. 

Since I have nothing better to do (actually there is plenty to do in the house hah..hah..like mopping the floor) I am clearing back log photos in my folder.

I found this burger that I ordered from MyBurgerlab, thus far my favorite burger joint.

Indeed I am addicted!!

This here is the Fat Elvis.


It is described as a "double sharp cheddar beef patty layered with blueberry jam, peanut butter and caramelized onions". It sounds very weird but I had to try it at least once.


One of the things that I love about the burgers is the crispy cheese. So nice. 


I did not dislike this burger although I geli geli a bit about the peanut butter and blueberry jam combo. It was all right, not as weird as I thought. But not my favorite.

What? Oh. The old boyfriend. Not my old boyfriend. Girl's.


She got along quite well with this one. He was a skinny thing with a voracious appetite.


One day he simply disappeared (all her boyfriends disappeared one by one) and on that day, Girl came home quite late in the evening looking and sounding upset. I did not understand what it was all about until the next few days when I realized this guy went missing. Maybe Girl saw something happen to him, I don't know.

This is a photo of her taken from two years ago when she first started to live with me.


She was still young then. And I was still getting used to having a cat in the house.


Girl has been a joy even though sometimes she drives me up the wall.

  1. Selamat Hari Raya Mak Hong Chee!

    The black burger really looks tempting esp the crispy cheese. I had never tried crispy cheese. Bring on!

    Trust me, all cats have no loyalty to their masters and lovers esp street ones. They might be loving to the masters because they feel safe and secured but they might visit other owners in the neighbourhood. I discovered this joke in my community facebook when some neighbours appealed about the whereabouts of their cats with shown photos. Then several owners voiced out that ginger cat has been living with them over the years. The joke turned into argument until the rightful owner decided to lock her ginger cat indoors. End of story.

    1. Selamat Hari Raya TM! heh..heh..

      If you have never tried Myburgerlab, you MUST!

      I have read about how in Germany you can actually sue your neighbor for enticing your cat! Amazing :D

  2. So Ah Girl's old boyfriend comes back?? Ah Girl must be happy to see him again.

    I could not imagine the taste of the burger. Sweet, not something I associate burger with. Lol.

  3. I have eaten this burger and I am ok with the taste. Wah, ah girl has been with you for two years already. May there be many more years! Stay safe! Today a family wore their best Raya clothes and walked past my house talking and not wearing masks. I wonder where they are walking to without masks somemore and all dressed so nicely children and mothers, no fathers in the group though.

    1. I hope for many more years too with Girl and Belle. Yesterday, I heard loud children's noises like they were happily playing. Hope they were from the same household.

  4. Fat Elvis, probably inspired by the Elvis Presley sandwich but then, it must have bacon in it...and bananas too! Fail liao!!!

    I love the sandwich so so so much but of course, I must control myself now - cannot indulge like before.

    I've heard of Burger Lab for a long long time now but the way things are going, I don't think I will ever get to hop over and go there to try. Sobssssss!!!!

  5. I see you can 'handle' double sharp cheddar! I wonder if I can. Not cheesy? Recently, I've begun to appreciate savoury with sweet in foods, that's why I think the blueberry jam will work with the savoury beef patty...but the peanut butter, I'm not so sure about that one...too creamy? ;)

    Ah, Girl's old boyfriend has some Siamese cat genes in him. He seems to be very at home in your house. Usually stray cats won't venture into a house unless they're used to you. A word of caution though...I don't think it's a good idea to let Ah Girl share the same bowl as the stray just in case he brings along some viruses. I wouldn't let Cookie eat from the same bowl as the stray I'm feeding now. I use a different bowl for her and would throw away any leftovers (usually there won't be any) just to be safe. Sometimes when I hear Cookie cough or sneeze, I'm always wondering where he caught that from. >_<

    1. Somehow I didn't have a problem with the sharp cheddar, maybe I was too distracted by the peanut butter and jam. Or maybe the crispy cheese hee..hee..

      Ah Girl now eats inside the house and so far, there has not been any strays visiting me hee..hee...

  7. I will have to taste the burger to know how it taste like. Time really flies. Girl has been with you and she has grown a lot. Poor Girl having to lose her boyfriends. Now she has you, her mama to love her. Was Girl playing hide and seek with you in the last photo?
