Had not been doing much experiments in the kitchen. The mood is still on the loose! Oh do come back soon... I miss you.... ahaks....
But yesterday, in the mood or not, I have to do something. My friends when we were in Malawi, two families, said they are coming to our house. So with whatever mood that's hanging on to me that time, I made something simple to serve them. And guess what.. then only I realised, it's all more to western. Even the tea, Tuan Haji Anuar said, tasted like English tea. I just used the GENERAL brand teabags. The menu for yesterday was Fried Macaroni, Garlic Bread, Mushroom Soup and Fruit Custard Puffs.
Thank you everyone for dropping by. Should do this more often huh? Just like the good ol' times! Huhuhu.....
