Lunch of The Champ

7th Mar 2008

KL is filled with lots of delicious food, yet this is what I had for lunch. Due to the current heavy rain, I’m too lazy to go out and pack me some food.. and neither do I feel like cooking at home.

If I continue eating like this everyday, bet I’d lose like 10lbs in a week! lol

What did you have for lunch?

Spaghetti Carbonara {i.want}

24th Feb 2008

If you’ve been reading my other blogs, you’d find my complaints on how tired I am being out on a “mini-shopping” trip earlier – and still I am complaining! Ugh, my heels hurt, my back aches, my eyes couldn’t open, my head feels really heavy (blablabla).. but I’m hungry! Well, not exactly hungry like I need something to eat right now. I’m aching for spaghetti carbonara. For some reason, I am dying for that. I’m drooling, I yeaaaaaarn for it! (No, I’m NOT pregnant)

Since I’m not a very good cook in the kitchen, I had to Yahoo (I don’t really do Google) for the recipe – because I plan to make one for myself tomorrow or the day after. Depend what my appetite’s gonna be like. (at times like this, I envy those who can really cook. People like Shemah, Shana, Syura.. – WOW, these girls have the “shh” sound in their names! =D)

And because I’m nice, I’ll post the recipe for you non-spaghetti experts out there. *hee*

INGREDIENTS

* 1 pound spaghetti
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 8 slices bacon, diced
* 1 onion, chopped
* 1 clove garlic, minced
* 1/4 cup dry white wine (optional)
* 4 eggs
* 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
* 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
* salt to taste
* ground black pepper to taste
* 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

DIRECTIONS

1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti pasta until al dente. Drain well. Toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and set aside.
2. Meanwhile in a large skillet, cook chopped bacon until slightly crisp; remove and drain onto paper towels. Reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon fat; add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, and heat in reused large skillet. Add chopped onion, and cook over medium heat until onion is translucent. Add minced garlic, and cook 1 minute more. Add wine if desired; cook one more minute.
3. Return cooked bacon to pan; add cooked and drained spaghetti. Toss to coat and heat through, adding more olive oil if it seems dry or is sticking together. Add beaten eggs and cook, tossing constantly with tongs or large fork until eggs are barely set. Quickly add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and toss again. Add salt and pepper to taste (remember that bacon and Parmesan are very salty).
4. Serve immediately with chopped parsley sprinkled on top, and extra Parmesan cheese at table.

(Wow, that sounds so simple! I wonder if I can go through it without burning the kitchen. hahaha..)

..I don’t even know what Orovo means. Do you?

The Colors of LOVE

15th Feb 2008

Like I mentioned in my previous post – my Valentine’s Day gift would only come a day after. And it’s finally HERE!

One box for myself .. and another for my brother and his wife. (I wanted to buy him some men’s jewelry but I didn’t have the budget) *hee* I placed an order from the cupcake shop like 2 weeks before Valentine’s Day but they were fully booked. :o( That explains why I only get it today. But I’m soooo happy with how the cupcakes turned out to be, so excited I ditched the diet today!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got cupcakes to eat and some preparations to do. Tess is coming tonight for our little “girlie reunion”, so I gotta clean up the house a bit. lol

Eating, And Proud Of It!

26th Nov 2007

So I ditched my diet again today. Went to Plaza Damas in the hope of finding a bookstore: which happened to be none. Not to waste my visit there, I head to Penang Village for dinner.

I sat on the sofa outside. Oooh comfy, comfy.. but the table was slightly higher than the standard ones. Probably because the sofa was too low and I am too short. A note of advice: If you’re planning to have a meal there, do take those chairs instead of the sofas. They’re too low. Trust me.

I ordered Penang assam laksa, watermelon juice and sago gula Melaka (again). Hehehe. While waiting for my food to arrive, I managed to take a few shots of the diner.

My favorite was of course, the Christmas tree!! It’s so beautiful, I wanted to hug it! :-P I can’t believe how people can make their Christmas tree look as beautiful as that when I can’t.. Eee.. must buy books on Christmas tree decoration ideas.

And before I could take more photos, my food arrives.

Woohoo! Looks yummy and sinful, eh? I love the sago gula Melaka most. The Penang assam laksa was too sour for me, my gastric hurts. Wish my brother was here so the food wouldn’t go to waste.

Wanna join me for my next outing? :-P
