Just Another Day

Early this morning I predicted the weather would be as gloomy as yesterday. While going about my chores, I had my usual caffeine fix and of all the food I craved, keropok happened to be my choice. Datang laa hari malas itu... Malas nak makan... malas nak bersiap... malas nak masak.... and berjelalah listnya.
But when the sun suddenly shone brightly as I was pottering about the house (ye lah...kerje rumah mane pernah habis kan..kan..kan?), I just had to drop everything I was doing. I showered, got dress and before I knew it I was on the road heading to the beach. It was such a beautiful day and it would hurt so much staying indoors.
Ah, this is it... the sea has always been my escape when I need to clear my mind. I stood by the low retaining wall feasting my eyes on the vast open sea. I could see the island from here and it was a delightful sight. Unlike yesterday, when it rained and the island was only a silhouette. Every time I 'lost' the island I felt a twinge inside me that made me sad for awhile and for reasons I could not comprehend. Anyway, laut pagi ini tersangatlah cantiknya.... dan tetiba jer teringin nak makan kari kepala ikan! Terbayang kari kepala ikan kat Hameediyah.... tapi masak sendiri sedap lagi kot....

Meluru ke pasar... dah dekat benar dari pantai BA ni. Hopefully, dapat ikan baru. Alhamdulillah... dapat juga kepala ikan jenahak. Balik rumah, sambung semula dengan laundry and straight away did the cooking. By noon, I was famished. Apa tah lagi bau kari kepala ikan menusuk kalbu... alahai... Tak sempat nak tumis sayur... buat sambal belacan  aje. AND....ngap sorang-sorang!

Eh, lupa pulak..sebelum balik dari pasar tadi, sempat jenguk Kak Zah.... hehe..just to check their new car... ish...ish...ish.... PJJ... my PJC is sooooo ancient, peeps!

Lili,

Kalau saya pi Penang island, mesti pekena nasi beriani Hameediyah. The taste is not quite like beriani gam Johor tapi still sedap.

Salam Oldstock,

Bestnya ada gang suka nasi beriani Hameediyah ni! Hehe!
Indeed... Hamediyah's beriani is the best so far, though I had tried Kassim Mustaffa's and Kayu's. None come close to Hameediyah's. Next time in Penang, you should try their fish head curry too... it is just out of this world! (exaggerate sikit! muahaha!)
