The Good Sunday

We’ve just returned from dinner with Gill and Jaso (he’s back from London!) so I’m all happy :). Even though it’s been 8 months since I last saw Jaso (and this was during Jo’s wedding in Kuching , how time flies) hanging out with him felt exactly the same from when we last left off, I guess that’s how I know that he’s a friend for life.

Saturday lunch. I took these pictures for Jan and Andy because they love the food at Manise. From clockwise, there’s Jo’s must-have empek empek, fried tofu with sweet soy sauce, eggplant with peanut sauce and ikan bakar manise (grilled fish with special manise sauce). All very yums actually.

Sunday lunch bento prep. This is R’s loh bak bento with braised belly pork, tofu puffs, hard boiled egg and braised pig intestines. I’m getting good at cleaning those intestines but they’re still hard work.

Loh mai kai (steamed glutinous rice with chicken, mushrooms and chinese sausage) for Jo and HC’s snack tomorrow.

The only reason why I made loh mai kai was because I had leftover glutinous rice from my new kitchen experiment. Can you guess what I’m making?? I’m not too optimistic and might make a second batch next week with a different recipe but fingers crossed it will work! Results in a month…

Btw Jaso if you’re reading this (he claims he reads my blog.. hmmm..) stop complaining that I never invite you over to my house, I promise a home cooked dinner at my place before you go back to London ok? That can be your birthday present haha.
