Selamat menyambut kemerdekaan untuk semua warganegara Malaysia (including Miss 13 and myself).
I pun sambut merdeka hari ni by going to a friend’s house to celebrate her birthday .
Nak berarak dengan jalur gemilang kat depan rumah, takut pulak kena chop mereng so better lah pergi makan2 kat rumah kawan kan..
sambil bergossip, sambil menaikkan berat, hahaha.
Masa bulan puasa and a week after puasa, my weight went down to a really gorgeous number.
But habis aje open house kat rumah ni, terus dia naik mendadak semula!
Bila makan2 kat sini, we usually will take a dish along ala2 potluck gitu.
I took some baklavas to the birthday party.
I made a big batch, using up the whole box of filo pastry sebab I tau orang2 kat rumah ni surenya akan nak merasa jugak.
i used a combination of walnuts, cashew nuts and almonds. Nak guna pistachio, I malas giler nak mengopek. Nak guna walnuts aje, tak cukup stock so kenalah campur nuts yang ada, hehehe.
And then for dinner last night, I made sushi along with its usual accompaniments.
I bought seaweed salad, i bought pickled ginger, miso soup powder and I bought sashimi tuna.
Then I made squid salad.
So, memang meriah lah our sushi dinner malam tadi, hehehe.
I made raw tuna maki sushi, canned tuna maki sushi, prawn maki sushi and seafood stick maki sushi and also seared tuna.
Dah lama we all tak makan sushi so memang semua orang makan sampai kenyang sangat2.
The Other Half said, “another restaurant outing ruined by you. I don’t want to go out to eat sushi anymore now. I love your squid salad and your seared tuna so much. I much prefer raw tuna and the seared tuna in the sushi than smoked salmon.”
Music to my ears when The Other Half says things like that .
