What’s happening…

So what has been happening at your end? As for me here, nothing much really! The festivals are over and it is back to the same ol’ daily routine. The rain and the flood have gone, so over the weekend, I decided it was high time I brought my old Wira to the car wash…

…and just before I left for my tuition class yesterday, it rained!!! *@#$%&+!!! LOL!!!

STP's tuition class

Ah yes! My post was featured in yesterday’s Borneo Post too…

STP in the news

…but they got the spelling of my “name” wrong. No big deal really…as nobody’s going to give two hoots about it, I’m sure. But instead of merely reproducing a selected post with the blog address at the end, perhaps it would be better if they had included a brief blog review as to what one might expect should they drop by.

Well, that’s about the only excitement I have had over the last few days. Pathetic, isn’t it? My life is so boring! Hahahahaha!!! I have not been cooking much either. My daughter had some potatoes with sardines at the food stalls across the road from her institute in SP and she said it was pretty nice, so last Friday, I decided to try cooking it myself…

It wasn’t too bad, I must say. At least, it helped add to the bulk as I was using the small can of sardines and there were only three inside! I also tried frying some cabbage with cincaluk (fermented shrimps) and that turned out well too…

By the way, has anybody been to that food stall at Bandong yet? I stopped by yesterday and bought this delicious dish of sambal prawns…

Bandong's sambal prawns

That cost me RM12.00 only and I must say it was incredibly cheap, considering that they were using udang galah (freshwater prawns), small though they might be. Perhaps I should have just asked for RM5.00 because there was simply too much for me and my missus to finish as I had also bought these assam (tamarind) eggs…

…for RM3.00 only. They were very nice – sort of sweet and sour kind of taste in a spicy sort of way. As for the veg, I bought this dish of what they said was the “heart” of the oil palm trunk…

Bandong's

All that for RM3.00 as well, and I enjoyed it a lot. Something like bamboo shoots and really yummy! I think it was supposed to be masak lemak (cooked with santan/coconut milk) but they used very little santan, so it was not very lemak. So much the better, I should say as  it seems coconut milk is not that healthy owing to its high cholesterol content. What was most important was it was so nice that my missus and I finished the whole lot in one sitting.

So what have you all been up to these few days? I certainly hope that your lives aren’t as boring and as uneventful as mine… LOL!!!
