Missing you…

Nope! It’s not you (“U”) that’s missing but an “N” instead…

Missing N

…and to think that these are the people in charge of books. Probably they do not have any dictionaries… LOL!!!

But talking about missing something, I did miss the stall at Bandong. I think it had been a month or so since I last went, so I dropped by yesterday and got myself some ulam timunΒ for dinner…

Bandong's ulam timun

They were just RM1 a packet…so I bought two. Gosh! The sambal belacan was so wangi (fragrant) that the smell filled the whole house. Really nice and value for money! I certainly will buy that again the next time I drop by…and maybe I’ll buy an extra cucumber as the sambal given is quite substantial.

I also bought another favourite of mine – masak hitam Sarawak

Masak hitam Sarawak

…RM10 of it and I counted no less than 15 pieces of those huge chunks of beef. There was a lot of the yummy gravy but I only poured that in after I had taken the photo.

My daughter loves this sambal terung

…but I did not get the chance to buy some for her when she was home for the holidays. I guess it will have to wait till her May/June holidays. That cost RM3…and my missus and I could not finish the whole lot…, only the ulam! Yum! Yum!!!

  1. have i mentioned that i was in awe when i first saw da stalls in our hostel sold green terung…

    i seriously thought it’s unripe =.=
    that time la..not anymore πŸ˜€

    Aiyor…it turns green after frying/cooking lah! Yours stay purple kah? Gee! Young girls today! I love the ones I had where they fried the brinjal and stuffed homemade chilli dip in the slit that they cut in it…. Also green and very nice!

  2. mmm the sambal terung looks perfectly gloopy x) my grandma makes heaps of this when she comes over

    ..yum! Yum!! haha

    I prefer the ulam timun though…. May go back today to see if they’re making some more… It’s only veg what! Hahahahahaha!!!!

  3. I have to confess – I just do not like Malay food. My husband gets a lot of that sambal balacan from a stall at the corner of cafe cafe. Probably, I should ask him to try “your” stall one day.

    Cafe Cafe? Fisherman’s kah?…..LOL!!! Typically Chinese eh? For one thing, they do not use a lot of msg…but they use a lot of oil to fry the ingredients. When I cook myself, I use much less, never mind that it all gets stuck to the wok. Later on when water is added, it will all come off. They also have santan in some dishes and belacan isn’t that healthy! Once in a while, indulge a bit…ok lah! Same thing as with pork leg or roast pork belly! Hahahahaha!!!

  4. terung and the sambal really blends well. siap jilat pinggan if my mom masak this .. ha ha ha. but dad would be just watching because he can’t really take spicy food nowadays .. :p

    Poor Dad of urs!!!…Did you get the mmses I sent? You sent me one…I balas all 3 – to make you drool plus2!!! Hahahahaha!!!!

  5. Hahahahah!!! The missing alphabet reminds me of some scene in a movie, the boss asked the staff to paint V.I.P. in a parking lot of the company then the staff asked, “Boss, how do you spell V.I.P.?” LOL πŸ˜€ I think it’s Singapore movie.

    Oooohhh….ulam timun. Yum! Yum! Chipmunk’s dad sometimes make the belacan himself and slice the timun and there you go, a dish for dinner. Last night had steamed tauhu with salted fish. Yum! Yum!

    I also make sambal belacan…but the old lady cepat2 eat habis, and she doesn’t bother to make herself! LOL!!! I love salted fish too – the long kiam hu…but have to cut down to once in a blue moon! Sob! Sob!

  6. aik….i tot you will be posting about songs this week….looks like tak boleh tahan ler…. πŸ™‚

    I do that in Facebook now…post songs, i.e. This post supposed to be a short one – for last week when I could only post a title, a photo and a sentence…but now that everything’s back to normal, I added something…and it so happened that it was about food. How come nobody’s surprised? Hahahahaha!!!

  7. Saw your comment in C’s post. I’ll rather faint for the price than faint because of the food..hahahahaha and please dont faint for the price of the ..prawns.we can keep one for C for when she comes back to Sibu.

    Aiyor…if so expensive, then you shouldn’t have bought lah! So paiseh like that!!!…Keep for who? Huh? Huh? Did I hear something? Hahahahahahaha!!!

  8. Nice beef…Make me hungry now. Not yet had my breakfast. Should not read your blog so early in the morning next time. Need to read after have my breakfast. Haha.

    Hahahahaha!!! The makan industry should pay me for my “positive” influence on my readers… LOL!!

  9. no, not that they don’t have any dictionaries. i think the letter ‘N’ was somehow removed or peeled off by some naughty kids.

    Yalah, just joking! Vandals obviously…but not necessarily just kids! Teenagers, grown-ups even!…You’re not in that department, are you? Thought you’re in tourism or something…

  10. American ldol update:
    l didn’t see Anoop yesterday…and l didn’t like Megan, Allison and Matt. Guess which 3 are at the bottom…and who’s out! LOL!

  11. Food looks good. Damn… makes me crave for Selera Bunda only.

    Hahahahaha…now OKB, can eat at Selera Bunda every day!!! πŸ˜‰

  12. Somehow I think I had an OD of masak hitam during one of the pot luck at my aunt (mum’s side) and don’t quite crave for it… yet

    Old lady didn’t cook any for CNY and so far, I only have had it in small doses…so ok!

  13. The daging hitam looks like to-die-for! Yumms! Where is this stall??
    Oh btw, thanks for linking me in your blogroll – i have linked you too! Do visit me πŸ™‚

    Jalan Bandong in Sibu. You can click the link to look at the photos I had in an earlier post. But are you from Sibu? I dopped by a while but I could not figure out where you’re from. Will do that again soonest…

  14. Wow! Delicious food! So cheap some more!

    You are a fan of American Idol? I think Adam will win it, unless something goes really wrong! Anyway, even if he does not win, he’ll be able to come out with an album and be a star already!

    Yes, very cheap… Ah! Another Adam supporter!!! He’s a natural! So effortless for him, it seems!

  15. fongpc: David Archuleta is more popular than David Cook. Don’t see him much these days. David A is all over the places.

    I guess Megan is out la, coz she’s not any good also πŸ˜›

    Ya, I was rooting for Archu…but he didn’t win! So pissed off! That David Cook a pale shadow of Daughtry…and they said he did well in the earlier rounds! Where got like that one? You’re no good in the finals…you lose lor! Never mind how good you have been earlier! Like Chong Wei!

  16. Maybe cos David A attracts both the gals and the ‘boys’ LMFSAO

    And who does David C attract? The men? Hahahahaha!!!!

  17. wah..i lau hau sooi already, i love timun with sambal.. how come they dont sell like that in packets over here.. perhaps i open one stall like that when i retire.. hehe

    I saw the ulam over there – the sambal in a bowl, all exposed…and all kinds of greens all over, also exposed!!! This one, they put the sambal belacan in a plastic bag together with the cucumber in a bigger one…and the food is all covered. I mentioned that in my earlier post about the stall, not like what I saw in SP!!!

  18. kpenyu: tengkiu tengkiu *perasan* πŸ˜›

    STP, I support Adam also for this season πŸ˜€ *swoon* Never mind he’s gay πŸ˜›

    Why u tenkiu tenkiu kpenyu? Why? Huh? Huh?* blink eyes innocently Hahahahahahaha!!!! Haiya…gay people usually very talented one! Oh…TOC, I said “usually”!!! Hahahahahaha!!!!

  19. Haiyaa…Sibu! So far away la, lol! I’m in KL ler…shah alam, to be precise. Thanks for visiting me πŸ™‚ Come again ya!

    Not that far away. There’s always the cheap airline…and if you’re lucky, you may get their zero fare! Sure, I’ll drop by again…and you too!

  20. David C? he seems to attact the lao kio like Paula Abdul’s generation.. hahahahaha

    Anyway.. I’ve been having masak hitam a bit too often since Christmas.. then CNY.. then during the pot luck and I forgot during the funeral of a certain person who died in coma… no wonder i don’t crave for it anymore

    You said that liao!…Paula Abdul? That’s your shorter-than-the-X’mas tree sister’s time – Rush, rush! So now she’s a lao kio…and Stella too? And talking about Stella, where is she? Keeping her distance? She should know the results by now! LOL!!!

  21. Yum Yum Yum to all the photos except the big bus! Just finished watching Idol, so far so happy with the results! Can’t wait for next wk what Adam have up his sleeves!….

    Oops…speak of the devil and hear the rustle of its wings!!! Hahahaha!!! Ya, the results so far have been as expected…no shocker like what happened to Melinda Doolittle yet!

  22. Note to self (again!): Do NOT read stp’s blog before dinner, or in between meals…it will result in definite dire consequences!

    Hahahahaha!!!! Not much different from browsing through recipe books or watching Asian Food Channel! LOL!!!

  23. Oh Dear….. there goes the G word!!! Buahahahah!
    Is eating considered a talent?

    Nope…that’s why I specifically stated “usually”!!! Hahahahaha!!!!

  24. I watched the show even though I know the result already. Hahaha! I guess when Simon answered “ONE” to Ryan’s question as to how many of the three bottom ones is worth the save, he meant Allison from the Addams Family. LOL!!!

    I didn’t watch…not with David Cook and eeeee….Lady Gaga as guests! LOL!!! I didn’t get to see Anoop yesterday…but from what I’ve read in some of the websites, he’s getting cocky…like Megan tonight. Some people can’t handle success. About time he’s shown the door… And I didn’t like Matt’s smirks either when the judges gave their not-so-flattering comments! Head now too big for his feet, I guess…

  25. of course i got it, sajer jer i buat dunno .. (in my heart salivating dy) ha ha ha

    Kesian, si-Bujang kat KL….so today’s Sarawak laksa that I mmsed to you got u drooling plus2 also lah? Hahahahahahaha!!!!

  26. Does the sambal go well with magoes too?

    Mangoes, you mean? Sure…especially the sourish not-too-ripe ones…and also all the others in the mango-family! Oooo…Yum! Yum! LOL!!!

  27. David Cook…errr…still prefer Archuleta, maybe have been listening to him on the radio all day. Hahaha! Heard he’s coming to Malaysia. Anyway, I prefer not to see Lady Gaga, very nauseating. Better to listen to her than watching her.

    Yalor, Anoop very cocky liao. I don’t like him. Matt is very forgettable. Danny too. I think Scott is on his way out as well, sooner or later. Now I’m swooning over Adam and Kris *melt* never mind one is gay and the other is married πŸ˜›

    Top 4 would be Adam, Kris, Lil Rounds and Allison. 2 male, 2 female – hard to decide lor…I like all 4! Hehe!

    I don’t really care for Allison…vocals, Lil’ Rounds but don’t like her song choices. Kris is ok – sings well, has the looks but Adam has the personality – the star material…

  28. It’sa funny how you could relate a missing letter to food!!! Lol… those are really cholesterol infused dishes!

    Looks like that’s all there is on my mind, eh? LOL!!! No lah…maybe just the beef! The ulam should be quite healthy! Hahahahaha!!!

  29. HAhahahlolhahahat at eiling’s comment.See..I told you I visit everyday to check out on what food to aviod..hahahah cheap yummy food+pills and tablets to go with it++++ expensive food. hahahaha

    So guess what you’re having for the next few days while you’re here! Kompia, kompia and more kompia! PLAIN, low salt unleavened bread! Very healthy!!!Hahahahaha!!!

  30. btw eiling..It’s funnier when Stp got almost 100 comments for a Blank post…bout 2weeks ago

    Oh…that reminds me…I’ve to go back and edit that post – put in the text and the photos! Or maybe I should just leave it as it is! A reminder to all – you say it best when you say nothing at all! Hahahahahaha!!!!

  31. Luckily I already ate, if not like the others I’ll be feeling very hungry too πŸ˜†

    Hehehehehehe!!! Any plans to come to Sibu…??? Sure you will need to jog extra when you go back! LOL!!!
