CHICKEN RENDANG

Hello everyone. I am back... hopefully to stay. This blog had been hibernating for more than 2 years! Gosh! How time flies. I didn't realise that I had been abandoning my own blog for so long. Naughty naughty me!

Anyway, let's have a fresh start now and for this posting, I will share with you what I had cooked just now. I cooked Chicken Rendang, a recipe I learnt from my ex next door neighbour. She's like a sister to me and the day they moved out of here, I just can't hold back my tears. For the past 14 years, she is a sister, a friend and a good neighbour to me. We go out together or we'll just hang out by the gate to chat while hanging our clothes to dry or do the gardening. Now it is all memories that I will always treasure, Miss you Kak Ana........
