and I always lament over the fact that my weight pretty much stays the same regardless the amount of workouts I've done?
Been hankering for some banana leaf rice for a bit now. There's one restaurant at Jalan Telawi that serves it but if we get there a tad late i.e. after 7pm, the place is already packed with patrons; locals and foreigners alike and we were always late.
Finally got the chance to eat banana leaf rice last Friday.
Raimie and his "plate" of rice. He wasn't happy to be eating there though as he prefers to go to a nearby Nasi Kandar Pelita for his "Ayam masak kicap".
Ours. Huge dollop of rice on my "plate" because I didn't say when at the staff to stop scooping rice on my banana leaf. For Zaini, he had another helping of rice later.
Vegetarian version : Three types of vegetables - bitter gourd, long beans and cucumber pickles; salted chillies (I love it!) and rice topped with dhall curry.
Medium serving of squid and papadum completed our meal. Yeah, I didn't go all vegetarian that day. Enjoyed that squid a lot. Raimie did too. ^^
and then, there's this. We didn't eat this chicken briyani on the same day we ate that banana leaf rice. That would be too much cholesterol overload! Had this for lunch on Friday two weeks ago.
The highlight of having an off-day on Friday and being at home for both Zaini and I would be eating briyani at the Mamak nearby our home. The place only serves briyani on Fridays.
After all these rich food, is it any wonder we ate only bread last weekend?
