Told you it’s going to be a scorcher of a week.
The temperature got up to 41.1°C at 2.30 this afternoon! And even now at 7 o’clock at night the temperature is still at 36°C. And they were only predicting today to reach 39 aje.
Esok is Australia Day and the BOM says it might reach 41°C. Sure rentung lah everyone yang akan berduyun2 pergi Perth city and pergi Freo untuk tengok the fireworks. Entah2 they are going to cancel the fireworks show esok malam sebab they are scared of it causing a major fire.
We all pulak are definitely spending esok indoors sahaja! Tak kuasa I nak jadi makin tanned!
Every Summer, memang I akan bertambah gelap sebab most days kena keluar rumah hantar the girls to schools and then drive around pergi mana2 so my forearms will be quite that much darker than the rest of the body, hahaha….
(Nasib baik bila tiba Winter, my skin goes back to ‘normal’ colour yang ala2 flat white but with a double shot of espresso, heeeee…..).
And when I wanted to take photos of my chillies pukul 7 tadi pun, it was still so hot. Nasib baik ada my nyonya kebun hat to cover kan, hehehehe….
I am really happy now sebab a lot of my chilli plants are fruiting presently.
From the mildest banana chilli to the really hot habaneros.
If I’m lucky, my habanero plant ni is the amazon chile roma variety which has loads of habanero flavours but without the heat. But if I am not lucky, it will be the orange habanero which is one of the hottest chillies in the world, hahaha.
This is the banana chilli yang so mild takde heat langsung tu. I am letting it ripen on the plant to see what colour it will change to. It has taken a long time banana chilli ni nak tukar kaler dari really pale green to yellow to this colour of a slight tinge of orange.
I think this is the Thai variety. So far they haven’t turned red yet. The green ones are not that hot.
The round purple chilli which I think is named filius. Some of the purple chillies have turned red though!
My hoa lat chilli yang I dah guna untuk buat macam2. They are hot but not super hot. But kalau letak 15 biji chilli dalam air asam(like I did last week!) meleleh jugak lah hidung and berasap jugak lah telinga orang yang makan, hahahaha.
Ini pulak chili api yang tumbuh ‘liar’ from the fallen seeds from last year’s plant. The plant is so small, around 6-7 inci aje but bearing fruits already.
This year I will make sure that none of the chillies go to waste like last year.
And since I am starting to use up the chillies from the garden, tonite’s dinner pun guna some chillies jugak.
I made beef and carrot stir fry with okra and bilis stir fry and telur dadar.
The beef stir fry I guna the green thai chilli. And the okra stiry fry I guna the hoa lat chilli.
Occasionally I like eating rice and stir fry with chopsticks, hehehe.
A speedy dinner for a hot night.
