Out of ideas of what to cook for dinner? Dining alone? Salad makes an awesome, simple meal for one, or side dish for two or more!

Ramadhan

/tries to beat Khurshid to posting his annual 'copy paste Ramadhan post'.. :P

Eventho I'm not a Muslim and do not observe the act of fasting during Ramadhan...the month of Ramadhan is still kinda special....

...of course when I mean special...in this context it can only point to 'food' ...LOL. Cialat...I know :P But I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks like this (My eldest sister would stock up on the good food she scouted from some bazaars and then have a feast out of those goodies....my 2nd sis and I would be lucky sometimes during our visit to her place after Ramadhan...like 2 years back ..I didn't join them last year tho :P)

The most special thing (to me) about Ramadhan is Pasar Ramadhan...or rather the Bazaar. About 2 rows of 10 (or more) meters stretch of stalls...with so much variety that...if I were to try one stall each day....tak habis makan thruout the whole month :P

Every year...a visit to the local bazaar would be a pain to the wallet...cuz...everything looks so delicious and we wanna try everything (cuz the damn place ain't near to our house so we're not likely to go everyday)....end up buying a bunch of 'snacks' and not decided what to have as our 'main course'... XP

Among the every time favourite are roti bom, murtabak, air tebu, ayam percik (dammit the Bangsar ayam percik used to sell at Wednesday pasar malam...now no more!), laksa (there's sumthing special about Malay-style laksa...altho I love just about every type of laksa :P ), and most recently...roti bakar. (Gosh that stall...they advertised that it was famous...at first we thought it was just a gimmick but turns out...its really nice!). I'm always tempted to buy 'lemang' but I tend to have rather bad experiences with them...which kinda makes me think twice everytime I wanna buy it.

In my first year at MMU, all those bazaars in town were rather...in accessable to us...since none of us have a car (nor know anyone with a car)...but we didn't really have to go that far since...there's a Pasar Ramadhan just downstairs hostel (we were hosteliers) at the Mosque Square. Even the small scaled bazaar like dat is quite...'dangerous' to us...since we're prone to over-buying food, to the point that we're stuffed every night and have plenty for supper :P ...awesome thing bout having the bazaar there last time was: we didn't have to walk far for dinner :P ...cuz otherwise it would be from MMU Hostel....until at least MMU corner or even further (damn semangat last time)...now ask me to walk....pftt!

One other nice things about Ramadhan...aside from the bazaar that is....is that QJ and I used to teman our housemate, Amran...to puasa. Well...we cheated la. We drank water....and sometimes curi makan (when we're too hungry...haha!) ...Sometimes we were so 'hantu malam' that by the time we were gonna tido, it was about time for Amran to sahur...so sometimes we join him for McDs (especially this one time where Bukit Beruang TNB had PMS and decided to go on maintainence at night for 3 nights in a row....we practically lepak-ed there whole night till it was time for sahur)...or just wake him up before we go to bed.

Mmmm....all this talks bout Ramadhan makes me think about Raya...and that makes me think of my friend, Fahizha's mum's laksa and ketupat. Sedaaaaapppp! Haven't been to her place for so many years...hehe :P /sheepish ....she's already married too...ahh teruk me ...hahahaha...sorry...takpe la this one saya yang rugi ne? :P

Wonder if we'll be visiting the bazaars this time around...since Amran's already graduated and Razzman....I doubt he'll be very keen to travel that far for food. We'll see :P

Anyways....to my Muslim friends out there...Selamat Berpuasa :D
