Canned Cuttlefish Sambal

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

Hello hello hello... a very good Monday to all. Hadn't been updating my blog this long weekend because I had such a busy weekend. Now, exhausted and dreaming for a holiday by the sea or on the mountains... boley gitu?

Last Friday, Syahmi asked if he could invite his friends over, in other words, to have an open house. Since he had never asked this before, the father and I agreed. I thought many would turn up, but only 8 came. So we decided to invite our neighbours as well. Unofficially, I had an open house last Friday! We had a lovely time with our friendly neighbours. Thanks all for coming. I do hope all of you enjoyed the dishes as much as I enjoyed preparing them.

On Saturday, we made a day trip to Segamat to attend my cousin, Zuraida's wedding. Congratulations Ida and Najib. Here wishing both of you a life of happiness, cheer, love, laughs, and good times. Amin.

On Sunday, we went to a friend's open house in Desa Pinggiran. We were with them back then in Sri Lanka. And from there, we went to Bukit Mahkota to another friend's house and stayed there till late. Both the hubbys, will have a never ending story when they both meet, once in a while.

While we were there, I received a sad news. My Ayah Long passed away peacefully. May his soul rest in peace. Al-Fatihah...

T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E

Just because I had told Kak Ana, my neighbour, that I am going to cook sambal sotong dalam tin as one of the open house menu, I was determined to look for the Rex Cuttlefish, by hook or by crook. I went to more than 5 shops to look for this fella. Allah had mercy on me, finally I found it at one of the groceries shops and for a price to pay. The funny thing is, whenever I don't feel like buying it, it's always there, nicely arranged on the racks of the shops that I normally go but when I want it, it's just so hard to be found! Haish.....

  9. Mama Fami, no need to pity me, sudah biasa sebab kopi tu I bancur untuk boss saya dah 20 tahun. Sudah hampir zaman dinosaur. Pakai recipe yg sama, serbuk import dari Batu Pahat lagi. Dia tu sudah menapauselah, Kalau Monday or lepas public holiday ada ada aje, merepek 1 hari hingga saya cari alasan hantar dia keluar office. hahahaha....I pun cakap dia "boss, wait I pension no more kopi to drink. You bancur sendiri sebab orang lain bancur complain macam air longkang."

  10. never crossed my mind that the rex brand squid could be made sambal! What I normally do is to slice bombay onions and garlic, saute, throw in some cili padi and pour the contents plus it's juice. nadia and I like it that way. or maybe I have not done any other way. thnx for the idea MF.

  11. Jid :
    Keluar dah ayat-ayat cinta budak ni! Hahaha... Alhamdulillah kalau begitu kekdahnya. Sejukkkkkk hati mama baca. Lega pun ya gak... alhamdulillah. Jasamu pun ku kenang jua Jid... muaahh...

    makcikkantin :
    Waalaikumussalam sis. Kita main hentam je buat sambal tu sebab pernah rasa that sotong dalam tin kat rumah kawan. Tapi dia masak benda lain. So I thought, why not I modify jadi sambal. Ahaks.. Thanks sis for trying out the recipe. Cantik ooo kaler pelangi pudding sis tu...

    Juwita Jamaludin :
    Ita, pada tekak mama ni, rasa sotong tu cam rasa sotong kering tapi lebih lembut.

    Amelia's De-ssert :
    Aiyooo your boss knows how the air longkang taste like ke? Hihihi... peace boss!!!
    By the way, what's so special about the Batu Pahat kopi eh? Sedap eh?

    Kjee :
    Mmm secara tak langsung, Kjee bagi satu resepi mudah ni. Thanks Kjee... who knows I might try one day. Tapi adoiiiiii mahal giler sotong ni. Kita beli hari tu, satu tin kecil, 4 henggettttt!
