I LOVE YOU, STUPID!
Oh no no no... don't get me wrong. I am not calling anybody stupid but yes I love all the visitors to my blog. The above is the title to a novel that I am reading at the moment, written by non-other than the famous Melur Jelita. Her first book, a thick one too, is Awak Suka Saya Tak, which I've finished reading too. I am not a fast reader as time is not on my side. But I will carry the book wherever I go and will read whenever I have the time to spare.
I am on page 365 now.. and yet a long way to go. Mind you, the page that says TAMAT on it is on page 1389!! You can do it mama!! Chaiyok chaiyok...
What I can say when reading Melur Jelita's books, there are so much information in it. We are not only reading a story but actually learning something at the same time. And I like that very much.
Thank you Melur Jelita for the lovely stories and not to mention the useful informations... I look forward to finish reading ILUS as I think I am part of IRIS now... the nice part that is... hahahaha.....
One of the recipe that Melur Jelita had provided in her book is Bubur Lambuk Cham style. The recipe cam be found on page 291 and 292. I googled the recipe and came across this 'Bubur Nasi Kemboja' in Fiza Damia Yummy blog and decided to give it a try. It is more or less the same like the porridge that I've done before with a slight twist here and there. Nevertheless, I love it and my daughter does too.
To the Cambodian people out there, my sincere apologies if the recipe is not the same as your original recipe but according to Fiza, she got this from her relative who is a Cambodian. Thank you Fiza for sharing it with us...
