Salam, Kia Ora...
Everytime I try to start my 1st paragraph, I find it hard to find words and start composing. I always said this is gonna be a short entry but after typing I realised that I'm already at my 3rd paragraph...hahahaz. For me it's always hard to start but I dunno how I managed to tell grandma's story and managed to have a long winded entry instead..........
Talk abt grandma...hmmm my late grandma I should say. When I was in primary school, I used to stay with my grandma during the school holidays. I used to help her to pound chillies for sambal, stir her cooking and even fry fritters for our afternoon tea. This is one of the comfort food that she used to make for me and my cuzzie for breakfast when we were there. It's called lempeng, sort of like crepe but its usually eaten with spicy dishes like curries or sambal. Best eaten with anchovies sambal....yummzz yummzz.
Anyway, I made beef curry for dinner last night. As usual, when hb sees curry he wants roti as in Indian roti to accompany the dish. Most of the times, I don't comply and we will just have the curry with rice. Sometimes, I will buy ready made Indian roti from the supermarket...hehehez. Last night, he asked for roti again and I decide to comply this time since he had a bad day at work. Instead of making roti, I made him lempeng bcos I was lazy hehehez. Its easier, I don't have to roll it with rolling pin and easy clean up :D
Still thinking if should bake a cake today. Must watch my diet but my mouth been itching for a slice of cake after that RVC disaster....uuuwwwaaaa!!!! It's so hard to resist temptation :(
