Over the weekend, we enjoyed a yummy home-cooked meal and fun conversations at C’s place. Our feast. Fried eggs, ayam buah keluak, bittergourd with tao cheo , vermicelli-fishball soup and super spicy home-made sambal chilli. I overdosed on the chilli

We just didn’t feel like eating the same food for lunch on Sunday. I made this for him. Capellini with prawns. (Love capellini because it tastes like beehoon!) And this was what he cooked for me. Cooking instant noodles is
Last Sunday, we drove to the south-west to eat the famous lor mee located at Blk 109 in Bukit Purmei. Or rather, I ate lor mee while the husband ate fishball noodles. He cannot understand why I love the starchy, gooey
