12 Jun 2014 – Good for the Heart & Soul!
Mon: nice quiet dinner at Jo’s. Made a smoked salmon salad to celebrate Sophie’s Bday. At the airport to see Pat and family off for their holidays plus for the graduation of David’s bro Paul. Seems like yesterday I was talking to Paul and he was told me that he was accepted into the School of Dentistry in UCC, Cork/Ireland. Congratulations to Paul.
The Kopitiam at T3 is now re-opened after renovations – tastefully done.
Blended***In this 3rd romantic comedy collaboration between Sandler and Barrymore, following The Wedding Singer and 50 First Date. After a bad blind date, a man and woman find themselves stuck together at a resort for families, where their attraction grows as their respective kids benefit from the burgeoning relationship.
Enjoyed this light-hearted and entertaining feel good movie.
Wed: at the wet market for fresh produce and the wet market is the only place where I can buy 1 of everything, including 1 stalk of celery! Pandan leafs and torch-ginger flowers can only be bought at wet markets. Trying to make a tasty Nasi Ulam but today they were out of torch-ginger.
Experimenting with Nasi Ulam as I just cannot get enough of it. These are some of the ingredients and fortunately my sis has some of these leafs growing in her garden. Believe me, once you have had a bite of it, you will want MORE…
Torch-ginger flowers, Calamansi (limau Kasturi), Pomelo leafs (daun limau purut), this can also be substituted with Kaffir lime leafs, Laksa leafs (daun kesom), Betel leafs (daun kaduk) are not so easy to come by outside of the tropics.
Just imagine, how much easier our lives would be if we were born with a ‘user guide or owner’s manual’ which could tell us what to eat and how to live healthy ― Erika M. Szabo
