its tht tym of the year again!
today, i woke up early? *ntala...8/9ish?* hahaha...
then i had a date w my cuzin at 10ish to go raya shoppin as i xde baju raya..
ok,i do hav 3 pcs of kurung in my closet tht i had just bought from an online blogshop...but hmmmmm....i dont consider them bju raya...too murah! *hahah! ank org kaya betul!*
so b4 heading off to pkns,i decided to go n send sm stuff fr recycling...as i was bz loading the rubbish bags into my car,i saw this flat tyre!!! huaaaa!! so sedeh!
thank god my cuzin came to the rescue n after 3 tyre shops! one agreed to come to my house n help me!! hehehe...
we were not even late for shoppin..it was barely 11am...n the zakat fitrah counter wasnt open...*yeah,my famly ALWAYS baya lambat...there was this one raya,we actly paid pg raya semasa org dh duduk tgu nk solat raya!* yeah...talk about fashionably late! hahaha
6 hours later,
tireless hours of walking...n endless rows of shops n boutiques,
we all got 3 bajus each..ok,i got 4..hehehe...
the other we all got in common was,
kak lynet,my mom n me all got a baju frm Jedan...
*its suposedly to b this super mahal kedai in bangsar village...n they hv a branch in pkns...*
so im super happy.
*except its purple*
~~~not realy my fav color...
so i have lyk 2 purples...n 2 cotton kurungs (pink n blue)
im wearing the blue one tmr...
n i nearly had not gotten blue..
y m i stressin on it?
bcos a certain sumone had pursueded me to wear blue...
n i mmg xde blue byk pun in my wardrobe..unlyk my mom *FULL w BLUE*
no gambar of baju. gota wait fr raya
bcos raya is the only time i will wear kurung in the house fr a full day.
so after reaching home at around 4...and suffering insufferable pain,as a part of a ritual girls life cycle...i strted watching telly on my sofa set downstairs alone...since my mom dah out *she was soooo tired frm walking around cos she wasnt realy wel...n my dad had gotten the fevers again! huhu* then i got tired of sitting down n lazing around.
i felt weird lazing around. raya SHUDNT b this way.
so i went to kitchen n strted my cooking all by myself...
by the time my mom came down,i had cut all the things to tumis the rendang...
luckily i bought ready cut chicken...cos i cant bare cuttin a chicken...*even washing the chicken grosses me out..hahaha*
so anyhow,about 3/4 hours later of cutting,blending,tumis-ing n most important of all,kacau-in the rendang...at about nearly mignight siap...
n lupe asam keping...
but it was nice.
so if ur interested in making....here is the recipe fr rendang courtesy of urs truly....:
for about 6 big pieces of chicken
bawang kechik (shallots) LOADS about 1 and a half packets?? banyak is all i noe...
serai about 8 sticks
lengkuas,about half a fist big *but once u potong it bcomes a lil less of a quarter of a fist??*
kunyit *very little~~~about half a thumb*
daun limau purut
salt *secukup rasa*
santan *enuf to cover the chicken*
so wht dyu du?
mcm bwat sup!
- blend evrything!
- put all the blended stuff into the pan
- then put alil (or as much as u want) of cili boh...n kacau!
- gaul sampai bau sedappppp
- put chicken pieces..
- pour santan! til cover the ayam...
- don forget the salt! asam keping n all dauns!
- n kacau some more!
- keep stirring! *this is repeated very often do tht our chicken doesnt get hangus at the bottom!*
- sampai naek minyak!
- wat is naek minyak? its wen u c oil bubbling on the kuah!
*NO OIL tau!!!aka jgn letak oil...dye mmg naturally got oil frm the fats of the chicken!*
- 13. make sure ayam is cooked! if not yet, u can add water n keep kacau-ing! hehe...
- 14. then make sure u hv the desired amount of gravy by the addition of water...but evrytime u add the water,u hav to keep cookin the ayam til naek minyak again! don wory about the ayam! the longer u cook the better! thts the beauty of rendang!
- 15. walaaaa! u smart cook!
maaf zahir batin evryone!
