Masak Lemak Cili Api Udang & Cendawan Tiram

A week already? ....dengan mimik muka yang terperanjat poyo..... Wow, time flies!! That's how long I've neglected my blog! But what can I say, I just can't get myself to write something as nothing comes to mind. I do cook, did try a few recipes but just can't get anything out of the brain to write. Whats more, that one week period is pretty hectic for me. Sooooo many things happened, so many events took place, leaving me....exhausted but happy most of the time.

I don't intend to have an open house but since last Saturday, quite a number of friends wanted to come over, so I prepared some dish for my guests... tak sedap mana pun... tapi asal ada hidangan tu, okaylah tuh!.... My old time best friend in Sek Men Teknik Melaka (batch 1982/83) Haslinda Hj Noah came over with her family. It had been more than 10 years since we last met but still in touch. It was great to see her again after all these while. We had a great time chatting and updating stories, not gossiping ya.!!! Mind you... Thanks Linda for coming, and now that you've already know my house, please feel free to come again....

After they left, our friend, Noraya and family, whom we get to know when we were in Sri Lanka came over. Kak Jamaliah was supposed to join in the group but can't make it as they were stranded in Malacca due to the rain. It was En Mus's (Kak Jamaliah's hubby) birthday that day, 3rd October, and I thought of decorating one cupcakes with a birthday wish on it, just for him. But since they didn't make it, so I just decorated the cuppies with the Eid theme. Thanks Nor for coming and Kak Mal....I'll be right here waiting...........

When Noraya left, another three of my friends dropped by with their families. Ida, Azie and Zai. That was the most happening gathering where everything's like came to live. It was a full house which left the host, stunned, like the house had been seized by them. The good thing about that is, less work for the host! Hahahaha.... Gals, it was fun having you around....

These were some of the simple dishes that I had prepared recently....

Cupcakes order from Jid for her nephew, Faiz...

My 'sort of' open house menu....

The simple recipe that I'm going to post here today is a recipe from 'the mission to empty the fridge'! Haha... Here goes my cebur cebur tipu tipu recipe....
