Julie n Julia ...

Dear Emily

As suggested by you, I'm now watching Julie n Julia, hehe. Thank you. Imagine me watching the movie while typing this, texting you some more and being a 'mek gyver' to give a TLC to my washing machine which opts to be ngengada *pap*.

Julie n Julia .. could they be us? hahahaa... I am fond of Julia as she is very mischievous n funny.

Julie is a blogger, just like us, ehem. Do you remember what her husband said when they had a fight? "don't write it on your blog". "Write what?" .. "write about us fighting!!" .. kihkihkih..

You told me just now that you were having nasi beriani for lunch. *deep sigh* If only you could tapau some for me, my Sunday would be wonderful! :-)

Somehow you've given me an idea to cook a one-dish meal. What better way to cook than to use everything instant? Work smart and not work hard? hehe whateva!


I've no stock of basmathi rice left but that won't be a deterrant. Thai rice is good enough and I make do with what I could find hidden in the crisper/freezer. I added some tomatoes, red n green chillies to the rice to enhance its taste. Walla!

I cooked beef korma', fried some papadom and made that easy peasy tomato salad. Who's complaining? Surely not me. I am one satisfied customer, hehe.


My sympathy to that cream cheese. It has been in and out of the fridge for umpteenth time. Expiry date will be this May and that sponge fingers have been 'staying alive' in the fridge for more than a year now. Oh Tira, I miss you .. please come to big momma!

... and this one, GordonRomzi tengok pun pengsan! kahkahkah .. the idea came at the spur of the moment (kreatip kan?). Ndja brought n naturally bought those pithang goreng a few days ago. I was in the mood to be a food stylist pencen. The sauce isn't maple syrup but diluted palm sugar jer.

Do try that combo, sedap taw ...

Tak ku sangka ramai yang terkesima lepas tengok J&J. I plak yang tertinggal bullet train. Ekceli sejak berblogging, I kurang layan watching movies on Astro.
Sometimes I mmg kreatip, other time I am plain kreaTIPU, huhu..


Asilah
Sesungguhnya you mmg sadis, hehe. Semua orang bersemangat lepas tengok J&J. Memang best kan?? Terbayang kuali2 comel dia yang bergantongan tu..

Azam tahun 2011 bermula bulan Mac, bukan mula bulan Januari ke? hehe.. Takpe, slow2 kompol lama2 jadi bukit (Kepong) :-)

Many were smitten by that movie. Maybe sebab apa yg diorang buat dekat dihati kita. I pun nak tengok lagi sekali untuk menjiwai watak lebih mendalam, kah3.
That cream cheese, I'll try my very best :-)
