Barbecues are the best.
I really enjoy yakiniku. There’s something pleasurable about having to watch your food (making sure it doesn’t burn) while you eat.
It requires you to stay mindful and
present. Your mind doesn’t wander, you have no time to check your phone. It’s just you, the pit, and the meat.
I ❤️ audio.
New podcast in the works.
Don’t you hate falling sick?
Every time I get sick and have to spend the day in bed (like today), I think about all the things I could be doing instead and resolve to get better at managing my health.
Crab curry 🤤
I get cravings for crab curry with rice, served on a banana leaf. Satisfied that craving today.
So simple but so delicious.
When made right, nasi lemak (direct translation: fat rice) is a gloriously rich and flavourful dish.
I could do without the ikan bilis (fried anchovies) but the nuts, cucumber and sambal (a kind of chilli paste) are a
must. Replace the hard boiled egg with a sunny side up and I’m satisfied.
Time is always fleeting.
I spent the day with my mom today. And I was reminded that money can be earned, work is never-ending and clients are replaceable.
But time is fleeting. Loved ones won’t be around forever, and they are irreplaceable.
I still dream of fresh prawns dipped in soy sauce.
Whenever we say we’re going to eat seafood, I immediately think of the prawns I had when I visited Manila in 2007.
So fresh that they didn’t need seasoning or added flavours, the prawns had flesh that was both sweet and firm. I ate some plain, I ate some dipped in soy sauce. I’ve never had prawn that delicious since.
