Kuah Lodeh


Jumaa Mubaraq to all...

Often, when I chat with my cyber friends, they'll say, I have a good sense of humour and I am a very bubbly kind of person. Well, in a way, I admit I am. But to those who had met me in person, might find me a 'someone' else especially when I am in public or when I am in a crowd. I became 'timid' and 'tamed'. Some do have doubts, is this the real MamaFaMi or someone in disguise.

Honestly, I, myself don't really know why this happens. I will automatically switch into someone else depending on the situation and environment. In order for me to be really myself, it has to be in the comfort of my home and in very small group. If I am in a big crowd, even at my own home, I will be the timid and tamed type! Funny isn't it!

If you need confirmation about this matter, please feel free to ask Ummi because she had been in both situations. The first time we met was at IKEA and she had doubt about me. I didn't sound anything like how I was when chatting online with her. That's when she gave me the title "Manusia Dua Alam" Hahahaha.....


Recipe to be shared today as promised to Sherry Dzul is this dish which I cooked for the previous Eid-Ul-Adha. Thank you so much to Iza for sharing this lovely recipe with us. Allow me to post it here for the benefit of my dear visitors and also for my future reference. I will post how I had prepared the dish, depending on what's available in the refrigerator.

    Exactly! So it seems, we understand each other and I don't think we are the only two of the kind in the world. Mesti ada lagi yang macam kita kita ni kan... At times, worried juga, takut la pulak orang kata, esh mamafami ni sombong rupanya. Kat cyberworld je dia friendly. Esh, naudzubillah!
