Yesterday's Event

It's Monday again and after a week of holiday (Spring Break) for the kids and hubby, the girls and daddy started their routine again except for boboy, he will start school on Wednesday, April 1st....the school better be there...hahahahaha good news is he will start in the new building of the school after 2 years of construction work.
Tokyo is badly hit by the recent economic turmoil and I hope it will get better soon. I took my sunny boy to Nakameguro to have lunch at one of my favorite place only to find that the restaurant is no longer in business...sad huh...ever since I got here in 2004 they have been there and looks like they have been hit too. No choice, we have to turn back but managed to stop by at the vegetable shop near the station to get some vege and fruits. We finally settle for Indian food at Priya, another one of my favorite coz the food is delicious, portion is generous, price is reasonable and service is fantastic.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Before my alarm could go off I was awoken by the sun shining on my face...forgot to pull the curtain last nite. It's a beautiful day and looking forward to see the sakura tree in front of my house to go full bloom. I have been taking pictures of the tree everyday....thot of making an album "The Chronicles of Sakura".

I finished reading home news and Al-Fatihah for Dr. Haliza and Dr. Amin Tai. What a shocking news! Not that I know them personally but have I have taken my boy to see them before. They were the paeditricians at the Ampang Putri Hospital. News said they fell while climbing Bukit Tabuh, Taman Melawati. I have climbed Bukit Tabuh when I was in my teens. Takziah to their family and may their souls rest in peace. Amin. Other than that nothing much new....its still the same politics issue and crime everywhere.

Called my sister at home and she's looking forward to see her kids and hubby who will be arriving soon from Jeddah. Alhamdulillah. Pity my mom as she has to drive her car to the airport to pick up the grandchildren and son-in-law too. I guess they need 2 cars to fit everyone plus the goodies....Thank God, my Mother is still very genki.

Selamat Pagi Everyone

Assalamualaikum, good morning, selamat pagi, ohaiyo gozaimasu to all.

The alarm woke me up at 6. Freshen up a lil bit and right in front of the pc I was as everyone else are still asleep. Suddenly remembered the rice and dhall that I soaked last nite. I washed the soak items thoroughly and put them in a blender. Once done, i made myself a cup of tea and when straight to see what's in the fridge. Hmmm.... nice to have mee goreng for breakfast I thought.

Recipe for Idli


1 cup white urad dhall
2 cups rice (i use basmati rice)
2 tablespoon cooked rice
2 1/2 cups water (450 ml)
1/2 teaspoon bicabornate soda mix with 1 tablespoon water (optional)
salt to taste

1. Soak rice and dhall with water in a different pot for 6 hrs.
2. Grind dhall with 1 1/2 cups (250ml) water until smooth.
3. Grind rice together with the cooked rice with 1 cup (200ml) water until smooth.
4. Mix the blended rice and dhall together and stir until combine.
5. Cover and leave it overnite.
6. Before cooking, add salt and bicarbonate soda to the batter and leave it for 10 minutes.
7. Grease mould with oil, pour the batter and steam for 10 minutes.

Tips:- The bicarbonate soda is to make the idli more spongy and fluffy.

Serve with dhall, chutney, chicken curry or whatever curry you like. You can serve idli for breakfast or dinner. My little J likes to eat her idli with just sugar...that explains why she has rotten tooth...hahahahaha
