Beetroot is not on the list of my favourite food. But these deep purple-red beets are really good for eye-catching savoury dishes. My favourite dish is roasted beet pasta. Some people think making fresh pasta is a complicated work, but turns out making pasta from scratch is not as hard as you think. Continue Reading
Rice & Noodles
On the days that I were swamped with a deadline, groceries and struggle with my mood swing problem or just plain lazy and want to make quick easy dinner, I will reach out for a package instant noodles. Instant noodles are the easiest way to feed the hungry stomach, not only it fast to cook but it also tasty and filling. Lately, I often see the ads of Bakmi Mewah and made me very keen to try it.
I’m definitely a morning person. I was able to solve the problem better in the morning. There was a time that I would wake up late night and finish some work, but it only happens if I’ve been asleep for a moment. But more often hard for me to concentrate at night. Even cooking is not an easy task for me at night. Continue Reading
I love to cook rice with tea because it give an extra flavour to your rice. You can follow the recipe and make a green tea rice ball just like me, or you can just follow the instruction to cook the rice with tea.
“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.”~ Jim Jarmusch Continue Reading
The universe is such a wondrous thing. I remember on such a May day when the whole of Jakarta was shrouded in heat and the entire of Jakarta conspired against me, I rushed through the empty lobby of my office building hunting down for a cup of coffee. As soon as I stepped into the coffee shop, warm familiar smiles of barista greeted me. Found out that this place not as empty as the lobby. There is my Far East Prince standing in line, waiting for his coffee. He drinks Americano without sugar, while I go for my usual hot caramel macchiato. He wore a sleek black shirt with khaki trouser…not royal robe, and no sword in his hands…only a cell phone. That’s how we met. Continue Reading
This has been a long time coming, but I still remember it was a cold and wet day in January. Looking out the window on that day all I could see was rain, rain and more rain… the rain hasn’t stopped for few days. This is one of those days where I’m craving for a bowl of hot spicy noodles soup. I don’t have instant ramen or noodles in my pantry, but the hunger controlling my mind. I can’t think clearly… have to eat spicy noodles soup. Continue Reading
