Carca Merba

Yesterday, my lover helped the Mails to move. I didn't go. But instead I invited them to break their fast at my place.

And then I thought why not make it more meriah and invited two more families and one mamat bujang (dah kahwin sebenarnya tapi bachelor status kat sini).

But then err this is an adhoc thing. And it was already 10 in the morning and maghrib is at 0440. Hmm no time to get anything from the groceries. Thank God I just went to kedai. remember my last leceh story? So I opened the freezer and decided to go carca merba. No theme this time. Whatever goes.

I had two garoupas.
So I made sweet sour garoupa, Thai style

Lover just went to the market for big prawns and calamari.
So I made prawn in buttered curry and coriander. This is Indian. Lebih kuranglah.
By the way this recipe I sort of made it up myself and is my usual choice for a real quick nak cepat masak punya food. And the taste I must say memang sedap amat. Percayalah. :D

I got 1 kilo of chicken breasts, no skin no bone. I asked lover to get me another kilo.
And I made chicken with cashew nut. Chinese style (to the delight of Mrs Fath)
Another favourite of mine. Especially on my busy days. All these small pieces of meat, (diced chicken, prawn and escalopes) are considered fast food in Lollies household.

Kubis goreng. Melayu style.
Ini aje sayur yang banyak dalam fridge tu. I finished up the whole labu.

Tiramisu. Italian style. mamamia! I tell you using the biscotti fingers tu memang ultimate betul. I don't think I will make tiramisu with any other cake after this. If I put kekacang on every layer memang sah jadi tiramisu Montez. I faint just thinking about it.

Pastu biasalah air oren and kopi panas Muar 434.

Oh man! Penat betul. But then again I haven't invited anyone for quite sometime. So that was quite nice. It was ages ago that people came to my place such and such everyone commented on my red wall. And you all know that it had been a year since it was painted bloodshot.

They stayed until 12 midnight. Terus sahur lah tu gamaknya.

But for raya tomorrow I am not doing anything special considering I am going to at least three houses tomorrow and possibly minimum two the next day. Kalau masak pun buat banyak waste aje.

The government announced that the prayer tomorrow would not be done in the open as it often is for Eid Prayers. Instead it will be performed in the masjids. This is in the view of the possible rain.

So friends, Eid Mubarak from me dengan ucapan masak apa tu?

I remember minum kopi 434 pekat betul dan bau masya allah sedap.

Tapi kenapa ya al-lollies, bila dah beli, buat sendiri tak jadi macam yang minum kat tanah Muar?
