Makan-makan Month

Dear Diary,

Phew, it has been three consecutive weekends filled with makan-makan events. It started with an invitation to Ermayum’s house where I got a chance to be acquainted with several bloggers. It was a sublime experience for me as I know them only in cyber world before. On that day, I forged new friendships and strengthened old ties. The talented chef Ermayum served nasi tomato, ayam masak merah, acar timun & nenas, curry mee, nasi impit with kuah kacang and kuah lodeh. I was shy to join the crowd though.

The weekend after, came two invitations for us. They were to a wedding and a potluck. At the wedding, we had nasi beriani and its lauk and also kuih-muih plus fruits. The potluck was organized by Sweet, Sour and Juicy. The ever gracious host, Zarin served us with lip smacking desserts (apple crumble, banoffe pie, choc cheese brownies, red velvet cake, kek lapis) while other bloggers brought various finger licking dishes (asam pedas, sambal sotong, gulai lemak udang dengan nenas, kuah kacang, kuah lodeh, spaghetti, chocolate cake, apam). Siap tapau lagi tuan punya blog ni!!!

The just ended weekend, an ex-colleague invited us to her open house. There were chicken rice, mi kuah, ayam rendang, ayam kuzi, nasi impit, kuah lodeh and cakes. On Saturday night, we attended a relative’s wedding in Kampung Pengantin and the foods were delicious. Yesterday, we attended another wedding in Paya Jaras and this time around we tasted masakan minang.

I’m very thankful for the abundance rezeki but I’m not gonna be anywhere near a weighing scale for the next couple of weeks.

Ps: Sorry, did not take a single photo as this blog owner was busy stuffing herself….
