My my my... time sure flies, eh? It's Raya eve and now I can't procrastinate and got to get busy busy busy. Must clean house top to bottom. Change curtains. Cook Raya dishes. Iron the Baju Raya.
Am just taking a breather before continuing on with chores. Some of the nasi impit for tomorrow are cooked already and the second batch of it is boiling away. Later I'll do the preparation for the chicken rendang I'll be cooking. Got lots of stuff to blend and chop!
During the whole puasa month, yesterday was the only time we went to enjoy a Ramadhan buffet, courtesy of a kind someone who never fails to make sure we enjoy it. I even get to ask other family members to join too for the past years, but this year it's just us. Do you know how hard it is to get reservation for a Ramadhan buffet? Even those over-priced places? I made my reservation 3 weeks ago and I can't even get a table during the weekends! Crazy, man!
Take this boy out to eat and what did he do? He just wanted to read his comic books! If Uncle TM was there with us, Raimie sure kena scold by Uncle TM. He had a plate of roast lamb (this boy and his daddy loves their mutton and lamb), a bit of nasi kunyit (tumeric rice), satay and a plate of fruits. Then, he kept bugging us to let him read at the table. Tsk tsk
First round. Who cares about rice? I don't take much rice if I'm eating at a buffet. Rugi lah! Much better eat all the lauk-pauk instead. Wakaka
Must be healthy and eat lots and I mean lots of veges, kids! Prawns were there for taste enhancer. wakaka
Final round after many, many rounds. Some pickled fruits (the pickled guava was nice) and leng chee kang.
Did a couple of loops around the carpark as usual. Did just half of the intended distance because I started late. Yesterday I slept like an ular sawa after dinner. Zzzzzz
Then, it's market time. At NSK. A good place to go buy fresh produce but the market section there does resemble a wet market. We don't have to drive far to go there, the prices are cheap and the staff, despite being really busy are quite friendly and efficient. I wish Jusco & especially the more upmarket Cold Storage staff can be like them!
Raimie is pretty excited to help Mommy, but he just wants to help in the kitchen. He says he wants to be a chef. Whatever lah...
p.s. Interesting choice that boy has for his future career. Know what his Mommy's ambitions were? An army pilot. Or a forest ranger. Or a dentist... in the army. Absolutely nothing to do with being cooped indoors 9 to 5. xD
