Selamat Hari Raya Haji! For fun it’s the Hari Raya Kambeng (because kambings get slaughtered today). It’s a beautiful sunny day and I have my windows and grilles all open, giving me a good view of the shopping mall across the road.
I am wating for my sister to get here, as Rizal gets ready for Friday prayers. I am lounging ard my room, shuttling between my bed and my Inspiration Chair, because I cannot really decide what issit I’m doing.
We’ve got an action-packed day planned ahead for us. We’ll pop by my paternal grandma’s place in Tampines, with the Pasir Ris Family (my cousin Iqa’s family), my brother and his wife, and my sister will come too! After Tampines we’re headed to Hougang to visit my parents. THEN starts the weekend to ourselves
We made roti kirai with beef curry and egg salad today. It was Rizal’s first time (I think) and he did a great job! Well to tell you the truth, his mum made the curry (I know better than to evade into another woman’s kitchen and start taking over immediately) and semi-prepared the egg salad. She also made the kirai batter (I think because I didn’t wake up early enough hurhurhur sorry!) but Rizal and I stood there to do those babies one by one. We also cleaned the kitchen up after.
My mother-in-law is quite good cook with a fair share of awesome kitchen gadgets. She has a machine to cook hardboiled eggs PERFECTLY (without the yolk getting yellow with a grey layer, you know? It was a delicious orange YUMYUMYUM) and her egg slicer contraption has an extension of sort that allows you to cut your eggs into wedges!
I also think her curry is better (and healthier) than mine. Even though I still have to share a kitchen, I really don’t mind because I can learn new tricks before I go on my own when I move in to my own place in a year or so.
Hot hot hot sunny day today! Hope everyone’s got a good start to the long weekend too yeah?
