Parpu Telur


Assalamualaikum to all. It's been a while since I blabber in here. Maybe, there are people who are relieved with this situation. No grandmother stories from this old lady! Hahaha...

Not that I don't miss writing, but actually time wasn't on my side especially this week. My week pattern normally follows the Monday flow. I had visitors on Monday. So, yesterday and today, I had visitors too. And even this coming Friday, I am expecting a few guest. We'll see about tomorrow. Oh yes, according to plan, I'll be expecting the consignment guys to come and deliver some boxes for my friend. And maybe the PosLaju guys as well. Saturday, will be expecting Mak Chu and Pak Chu! Wow, what a great week!


For today's lunch, I had cooked my mother's favourite dish. Parpu Telur. The first time I made this recipe was years back, when we were still in Malawi. Thank you to Inai of Forum Cari for sharing this recipe with us. Speaking of Forum Cari, it's been a while since I paid them a visit. Thanks to Forum Cari...because of them MamaFaMi existed!
