Nasi Lemak

This time I planned of trying to cook Nasi Lemak. Why? Because I take up the challenge by Kak Dah, one of my colleague. She said that she wanted Nasi Lemak as the return of the lunch box given to me previously. After some searching done through the youtube videos and blogs, I decided to try a recipe posted by as it was quite simple and easy.

After 2 hours of working in the kitchen, the scrumptous Nasi Lemak complete with fried anchovies, fried peanuts, a slice of hard boiled egg and slices of cucumbers finally ready.

Alhamdulillah, I received a good feedback from insan-insan terpilih ๐Ÿ˜… who managed to taste my superbly incredible Nasi Lemak of the century. They are Kak Dah, Puan Suzi and my friend, Nethia. Though the sambal was so dry and gummy. Luckily no diarrhea cases reported. ๐Ÿ˜

Inspired by the compliments, I think I will try other recipes in the future. Perhaps Nasi Tomato ๐Ÿ˜Ž

My Bento

This year I had decided to start bringing my own bento to school. To this date Alhamdulillah, I managed to run this bento project for about 3 weeks which in turn saved my pocket money a lot. And it also helped me to stick to my diet plan. Imagine me sitting in the canteen with all the scrumptious foods. I even used to spend until RM 11 just for a single meal. Now I can really save up my pocket and my belly. 

Frankly speaking, I do not cook. The only thing I know of is actually cooking the plain rice and frying an egg. Now that I am living alone, plus the financial status that is not promising, I picked up some cooking skills by referring to the blogs and youtube videos. Dapur Bujang actually inspires me to cook because whenever I watch the series on Youtube, it seemed like cooking is something that is so easy. Why not I give it a try.

So, from just cooking the egg fries, I started to try some other recipes. Mixed veggies are my latest masterpiece. =P 

1st attempt - fried egg, rice & sambal hitam

2nd attempt - scrambled eggs, sambal hitam, apple & veggies

3rd attempt - omelette, rice & tempe

4th attempt - upgrade sket.๐Ÿ˜Ž  Rice, mixed veggies & orange
