Dinner discussion with husband, among other things

I posted this screenshot of a conversation I had with my husband, conducted entirely in Bahasa Malaysia, on Facebook.

Sorry for the non-halal topic!

It seems that many people find it hilarious. I wonder is it because my husband is a mat salleh or because of the usage of the language?

++++++++

My colleague got me this prawn candies from Ipoh. Anyone remember this?

Sweet, savoury and crunchy. I couldn’t stop eating it I must have had about 30 pieces today!

++++++++

Okay, I have succumbed. I have downloaded that damned mobile game called Flappy Bird. Let me just say that this game is systematically destroying my self-esteem.

It is bloody HARD!!!!! I’ve tried for so long and I have only managed a score of 5. FIVE!!! WTF???

Try it lah!

++++++++

I think these deals from Celcom are just fantastic. Personally I am already using the Note2 (which I have no qualms in declaring as the best phone I have ever owned) and on Celcom network (which I am supremely happy with) so if I were to upgrade, this Samsung GALAXY Note 3 Rose Gold Edition promos would be perfect for me!

# – Samsung GALAXY Note 3 Rose Gold Edition….so beautiful!

When you purchase the Samsung GALAXY Note 3 Rose Gold Edition from Celcom, you can enjoy a free Moschino phone case worth RM189. The case is very nice!!! Very matching with the rose gold Note3. I want it!

# – Moschino phone case.

Also, if you sign up for any Celcom First with mPro plan with the Samsung GALAXY Note3 in any colour, you can get the cool Samsung GALAXY Gear in orange colour at only RM288. Very “ong” for this Chinese New Year!

# – Samsung GALAXY Gear.

So Valentine’s Day is coming soon, and this might just be the best gift for your partner! To find out more information, click here.

Happy Chinese New Year 2014!

When I discovered that I had a puncture in the basement carpark of my office just before chinese new year, the first thing that popped into my head was, “Wow..this snake ain’t happy about leaving!”

Kept my cool and called the husband, who promptly gave me several numbers to call. My saviour arrived in less than 15 minutes. He discovered a tiny pebble lodged within the valve of the affected tyre. I racked my brains trying to figure out if I had pissed anyone off on the road or while parking, nothing came to mind. This could only be the work of a mischievous vandal.

# – My saviour.

Anyway, I was just really happy I didn’t have to get stuck for hours and that my bouts of diarrhoea had calmed down significantly. Yeap, I have failed to mention that I was already suffering from the embarrassing affliction for over a week. This snake ain’t happy about leaving!

Thankfully, that was pretty much it – peeing from my ass and getting a flat tyre. By CNY’s eve, everything was back to normal. Oh, I’m also proud to announce that my credit cards are at ZERO balance. Glad to have gotten that off my back!

Reunion dinner was steamboat at my mom’s. My white husband even brought his own bottle of Sriracha. He’s very serious about his steamboat.

# – Steamboat yum yum.

Can’t do a reunion without Charlie….he’s my hairy son afterall! Coco, my brother’s mutt is still as in love with Charlie as ever.

# – Coco and Charlie.

On the first day of Chinese New Year, I totally dressed up. Even put on some make-up! Curled my hair with the Babyliss Miracurl – this is definitely one of the best beauty products I have ever owned.

# – OOTD for 1st day of CNY.

Got the dress from Kitschen. Not sure about the phallic symbols.

Mom made my favourite vegetarian dish – Lo Hon Jai or Buddha’s Delight. The husband got his favourite Lap Mei Fan – rice with assortment of waxed meat.

# – Lohonjai and lapmeifan.

After breakfast, we drove to Mentakab to visit my popo. She cooked up a storm as usual.

# – More foooood!

After visiting my popo and my cousins, we came back to KL and I basically vegetated for the rest of the holiday.

Really enjoyed this year’s simple CNY celebration. I am feeling very positive for the year of the horse and hope you are too. Happy Chinese New Year!

Korean food craving.

Everybody has phases when it comes to food, myself included. For the past few weeks I have been craving for Korean food.

I just love that wholesome, spicy, sour tastes. Very titillating to palate.

Naturally it got me interested in actually whipping up a few Korean dishes. And so I did….

# – Bibimbap.

My bibimbap has seasoned bean sprouts, seasoned shitake, seasoned cucumber, seasoned spinach and beef bulgogi. All topped off with a sunny side up.

To eat, mix everything up with a spoonful of Korean pepper paste or gochujang.

Learnt a new trick while researching for recipes, to marinade beef with kiwi fruit and a splash of diet coke….my cheap cut of beef was nice and tender after only an hour marinating!

Hubs was very pleased :)

My next goal is to make dol sot bibimbap, but first I need to buy those cute Korean claypots.

For our next dinner I still wanted to eat Korean food so I made it happened.

# – Homemade Korean dishes.

I made scallion pancake with dipping sauce, kimchi jigae with streaky bacon instead of pork belly, seasoned tofu, seasoned shitake (which I sautéed with some bacon bits for good measure lol) and seasoned cucumbers again (love this). Pretty pleased with myself.

As usual I cooked too much food for two T-T Really need to learn to control portioning or have children.

I think I have enough of Korean food for now.
