the most exciting that i ever saw looks somewhere along this line:
serius bosan ok.
speaking about mideastern cuisine and tarbush restaurant, the one thing i adore most is not the meals, but the beautiful mosaic tables. MashaAllah memang laaaa sangat menarik
Friday, November 12, 2010
no pictures as we were a hungry lot, but its quite decent. n we don't have to go to jalan damai for our mid-eastern fix anymore, yeay! oh ya tarbush still ok, tp kedai ni of course nearer to our home :D
the spread is not much as yet, but we're hoping the shop will add more menu. the lamb mendi that we tried was not bad, the nasik a little biasa but the lamb was sangggaaatttt sedapppp!!! the meat literally jus melt in your mouth and very very juicy. it has three sizes, small (apparently for 1 person), regular and large. we ordered the regular portion for sharing, and boy were we stuffed like some christmas turkey! that, even after taking into account that hariz is a big-portion eater. sangat banyak, so i figured if its only girls with small stomach, regular portion can feed 3!
the only cheesy thing about the shop is not the meals, but the name. KEDAI NASI ARAB. in your face ok! kalau tak paham tu tak tau la.
i am hankering for much meat these days, next time pegi i'll take some pix okies. later!

just a few reasons:
1. my life is just same old same old..
2. i dont actually feel comfortable writing on internet space for quite some time. anyone who sees my facebook would know i've been silent for quite some time, only likes here and there on the pages i've been. dunno why but the whole terlebih cakap, n keeping what should be between you and your spouse is not meant for the whole world to see is has gotten to me.

tema tahun ni: PINK. lagi. hariz dah pakai pink last year, tp sebab dia tanak beli baru so pakai yang lama saja. ada dua baju melayu yg pink, but the one he'll be wearing is a peach-toned pink so no, its not too harsh for my darker-than-me abang sayang. aku je la baju baru nye :D
we'll be back on raya eve. tu maknanya malam ni atau malam esok. my PIL will be at our place while we balik sp. awkward? u bet. tapi nak buat macammane, sebab both my BIL and hubby tak balik trganu la my PIL raya sini. so, i can safely say this phenomena will happen every other raya.
kuih dah abis sebalang kat rumah. tapi takpa, makan dua org. eheh. hariz mkn lagi byk dari aku. aku tgh pk dodol kat tepi sungai stesen teksi sungai petani niiiiihhh... ahhh lazat, tapi mesti la takde time aku balik. aaaaarrrgggghhh!!!

my ramadhan this year is quite good, alhamdulillah. berjaya bangun sahur tiap2 pagi! yeay! (touchwood) harap2 sampai hujung ramadan i'll still keep up. kalau tak mmg mashaAllah susah susah SUSAAAHHH mau bangun sahur, minum milo pun tutup mata. skrg sudah improve, walaupun juz with cereal / milk / bread / weetameal / milo with supplements and loads and loads of plain water :D
iftar pun menarik. yg klakar nya i'm not very tempted with all the stuff at the bazaar. but i'm not a lavish spender kat bazaar ramadhan anyway, cukup dengan 1+1 main for me and him, 1 jenis kuih / light side dish and air kalau agak2 kena berbuka dlm keta. this year smpat balik rumah b4 azan, so beli lauk half, another half masak je, dgn nasik.
all weekends for ramadhan scheduled for travel / reunion etc. last weekend sudah balik sp, berpening bersama2 abah cari lampu kipas curtain segala. abah sgt ambitious, lps pasang lampu dah nak naik rumah baru. tapi serious tak habis2 beli lampu, i have no idea that a house can pack so much lamps!
i've been hankering for the third Stila Girl Travel palettes, gila punya stalk website hari2 tgk tak keluar2 lagi. brapa haribulan dah ni???? (mesti esok kuar, last month kuar 20hb)
just so you know, the first two look like these:while i'm at it, terasa mcm nak jugak yg ni:
god knows i'm a sucker for travel sized stuff, so a couple of travel-sized clicky cheek stains is giving me loud and clear signal to pick them up as well (whether the pomegranate crush -described as deep plum- suit my cheeks or not, belakang cerita ok! haahaha)

first off, let me tell u i am soooo in love with my newest playthings:
I got it in birthday suit and skinny jeans, what a perfect combi!
sorry no real pic, malas nak snap (mcm biasa). anyway, one booboo: the first time i used birthday suit it fell n the cap kind of cracked! i was like omg omg omg fuh fuh harap2 tak pecah terus. sayang mcm baby yg jatuh hahaha. well u can say its my newest baby so what can i do except act like a mother ;D
skinny jeans is L.O.V.E. ok. the biggest boldest font size of lotsaLOVESS i can give u darling. its a muted, metallic grey yg sgt gorgeous. i'm toting it everywhere i go now. n it stayed on without creasing till i wash my face. hold on to ur skin like nobody else's business, yet easy to wash with facial cleanser. what more can u ask for?
but ok, Benefit's price is a BIG humongous pain in the ass kat msia. one pot of cream shadow costs u rm85, as compared to only $19 online plus shipping. if ur one badass stalker, u can get it even cheaper, it can get as low as only rm50+! but instead of badass, i'm a HUGEass (pun realllyyyy intended hahaha) so i got rm140+ for two pots cream shadow, a lippie ANd a brush including shipping which would cost me 85+85+75+75=rm310 if i were to buy them here.
QUADRUPLE love, y'all!!
post panjang pulak. nanti2 la review lagi ye. toodles chicklets!

so i'm making a tribute for u.
NASIK LEMAK KERETA MERAH.
dulu masa awal2 kami berkenalan, meriah woo.. ada ikan bilis, ikan kering, telur rebus DAN telur goreng, kacang and sambal sotong. and some more sambal kosong. see see, meriah gila i tell u. and the best thing was, harga enam kupang saja.
masa kecik, perut pun kecik. makan sebungkus pun kenyang. tapi time pms boleh bedal dua. sebab tak la besar sangat. macam besar penumbuk aku je kuantiti nasik nye. tapi ok ah, banyak lah tu. nama pun breakfast. ko nak mentekedarah banyak mana sangat. dua bungkus tu kalau agak2 mangkit lewat pastu makan dekat2 time lunch boleh la sekali go. tapi jgn la pi bedal nasik pulak makan tengahari tu.
tu harga circa 1990-ish, seingat aku.
fast forward 15 years later, bisnes nasik lemak ni dah diambil alih oleh generasi anak. abah aku lah cakap, sebab dia tukang beli kehkeh.. tapi masih ada. rupa still sama, packing dlm plastic sheet n newspaper, saiz sama, rasa sambal pun sama. gila kagum pakai senduk sama 15 tahun ka hapa aku tak tau la, sampai tak ubah langsung. tabik ah dengan consistency rasa dia.
the only difference is no more sambal sotong (aku memang slalu donate kat adik aku anyway time ada), and harga naik dua kupang, jadi lapan kupang. dah recession dua kali harga naik dua kupang only.
lapan kupang i tell u.
mana nak dapat?
abah memang la pelanggan setia kereta merah tu. asal ada saja mesti beli. n mesti tak kurang 10 bungkus. dan aku la pemakan setia. tak penah tolak, dan kalau lama tak balik, siap mintak lebih. adik aku sampai tak lalu tengok, kalau ada nasi lemak tu dia tak makan breakfast.
takpa la perut aku kan ada. boleh isi extra.
sekarang cik abang pun tau, aku balik sp mesti makan nasi lemak ni. dia kalau dapat pun, bukan dua, kekadang tiga bungkus dia bedal.
satu je aku tak penah tanya abah,
kereta merah tu parking kat mana?
Monday, March 8, 2010
oh well. nothing new anyway. apart from minor accidents (knowing clutzy me), hari MC bersama hubby after a day of kenduri (serius ok, asyik bergilir 2-2 org pegi toilet), and emergency balik kampung to sungai petani, everything is just dandy.
and somewhat the same.
only thing is, i do notice bla balik sp je baru sibuk nak makan nasik lemak. in fact hari2 breakfast nasik lemak pun takpe. kalau kat kota damansara takde sibuk pun. siap refrain lagi, walaupun nasi lemak antarabangsa tu dah ada kat dataran sunway.
and satu lagi, sibuk cari goreng pisang.
a) nasik lemak kereta merah (thats what we call it) kat sp tu mmg sedap? (sebab dok ulang beli dah lebih 15 tahun sampai adik tak lalu tengok - tapi aku bedal je dua bungkus)
b) nasik lemak tu ada ganja? (macam kas2 kat kedai mamak letak)
c) nasik lemak kat kl memang tak sedap mana?
d) nasik lemak kat sp murah? (mana nak dapat sebungkus lapan kupang wei???)
e) aku saja gatal, sebenarnya rindu kampung? (BINGO!)
tapi memang serius, my family dah makan nasik lemak tu i think since i was in form 1. and i'm never bored of it.
see, siapa kata aku mama bosan? ;)

pulut = starchy = heavy meal = fat arse
but i do love them! boleh je nak mengadap nasik dagang pagi petang siang malam. which explains the hesitation to learn them, sebab nanti sendiri yang makan, sendiri yang gemuk. pastu sendiri susah hati.
sapa nak tanggung? laki aku jugak.
sotong / udang celup tepung, bereh! buleh nak buat.
tapi nak tiru angin sepoi2 bahasa kat tepi laut tu? tak boleeeehhhhh..
ambience tu penting ok (selamat aku tak payah mengadap minyak meletup2 hahaha)
kesimpulan: food craving needs fixing? balik lah kampung.

How to get that smooth, scale-free skin.
now i'm still hunting, for a good body scrub that doesnt dry your skin. ones that i tried were either too drying or has not as much of the grainy bits as i like. a loofah or sponge just dont cut it. not enough ok. but no, i don't have OCD, or else i (and the whole house) will be sqeeeeaky clean.
cakap pasal tonyoh2 ni, semalam punya la beriya tonyoh kaki dgn pumice block, sental punya sental, tersental ibu jari (tangan) sendiri.
hambik ko. pastu melolong bila jari tu terkena sambal ayam penyet.
Honey Almond Scrub
1 apple, pureed
2 tbs. dark brown sugar
"Olive you, honey!" body scrub (from bellasugar.com)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 4 tbsp. honey
- 2 tbsp. cinnamon
sounds delish, aint it? some of you artsy people might even make them as a DIY gift! oh wow! seronok nya kalau dapat! (bukannya nak buat sendiri. heh)
while i'm at it, the domestic guru, Martha Stewart has a page for this, and here's another link for DIY body scrub basics at myinspirationlounge.squarespace.com.
macam masak-masak lah. happy trying!

now i'm into skincare phase. hahahaha.. my vainpotness is gonna be there forever so this is something ur gonna see forever as well.
maybe it has something to do with having the big THREE OH in a couple of years maka i'm freaking out.
not to mention skin issues that i never had to face.
so when i went to the beauty counter, punya la panjang SA tu gebang, prung prang prung prang last last hambik ko, berderet2 produk dia kata aku kena pakai.
thats only the basics.
two different masks for different concerns, cleanser, toner, essence and mosturizer.
tapi poket kering jugak. lets see if i can maintain the routine and see any difference in my facial appearance.

a kind soul (meaning you, fatma :)) noted that my blog is becoming a blog promoting beauty products. it is, in fact, what i'm interested in at the moment.
keyword : at the moment.
i think i've been vain all my life, its juz that it came in waves, like there are peaks and troughs, exactly how my emotions are. sometimes i even think (especially when i'm in clinical setting), 'eh, chop, ke aku ni bipolar?' kind of thing. gila diagnose diri sendiri. but then again,
orang gila takkan mengaku dia gila. heh.
what you're seeing ladies and (looking around if there's any) gentlemen, is a very classic CANCERIAN frantic to find a suitable facial care for herself now that her current routine's stock is fast diminishing.
(i already see myself turning into the cooking phase again).
while i'm at it, hariz has made an almost scary request: for me to make FIVE CHEESE LASAGNA. my hips shudder (or jiggle is a more accurate expression) at the thought.
if i ever find all the cheeses i need, and finally summon all my courage to make it, i'll post it here okies!

got home and found that nabilah had cut fatin's hair short (which was what I intended to do the last time i got back!). so instead, i just need to trim things in place properly for fatin, and trim both shuhada's and nabilah's hair and bangs.
me? i dont trust my hair (or my skin for that matter) under their hands hahahahaha
(cue evil sister laugh)
nah... they know better.
somewhat the same, just that the name elvive is not for asian market

i'd love to post a pic of my hair (ends) here, but.. mm.. ada hati yang perlu dijaga, n i'm not even sure if there's any guys (or anybody else for that matter) reading my posts. but hey, i'm not affiliated with any beauty product companies ya, juz to clear that up.
tak banyak nak pack (kata bawak balik barang sikit je kannn), nak pegi jenguk dapur. later!

because there'll be soooooooooo many scenes that will be cut until there's no more movie.
its a dark piece, this movie. reminds me of sweeney todd, but none of the musical stuff. it potrays young dorian gray who arrived in london, very naive, n ended abusing his physical self, well, because nothing will happen since its gonna be transferred to the painting. n the painting was as ugly as what u can imagine, with maggots crawling out of the face. eurgghh. add up a few killing scenes, n that quite sums it up nicely. but the thing is, scenes about him abusing himself also included having sex with different partners, in orgies, women in brothels, a girl who just came of age, then her mother(??!!), ANNNNDDD..
the man who painted him.
gross. i know. now came me being prejudice. all sorts of questions came into mind. why do they have to put this scene in? is this scene (man with man thing) originally written in the book by oscar wilde, who, by the way, was gay?
conclusion: must read the book. to get the truth i mean, not for the saucy parts laaaahhh. but i don't know how on earth can i get my hands on it, since the original was published in 1890, as the only book published by oscar wilde (others were all short stories).
edited: there's (should be!!!) penguin classics version of this!! how can i forget about it! but of course, i'd expect there's nothing raunchy ;)
for more info, please refer to PARENTS' GUIDE FOR DORIAN GRAY.

Oh well. Takpe, rasa mcm baru kawin dua bulan lepas. Hahahaha.. Still manja, still nakal, still suka usik, and still and still and still. Badan je tak nampak macam time baru lepas dua bulan kawin. What to do... a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
survey handphone baru - tolong la jgn mati tak tentu pasal lagi sayang oi, aku tak larat nak maki
start thinking what to buy for hariz's birthday started but haven’t decided. HOW???!!
pegi tgk avatar and sherlock holmes cepat!!
oh yeah, we attempted to watch the traveller's wife over the last weekend, but to no avail. i dunno, but its really not my cup of tea. we could concentrate, like, for the first 45 minutes i guess? after that hariz slipped into dreamland, n me, happy to find the pc was left alone (yeay!!!)
started twiddledee-twiddledum in front of it.
n the tv was left to watch hariz sleeping :)
maybe when i'm in a soppier mood, i'll try
n drag hariz along to watch it. try again next time, anis!
had partial movie marathon last night. baru nak tengok aliens in the attic dengan cloudy with chances of meatballs. both warranted a few more rounds of rewatching. very entertaining!
up next: inglourious basterds, dorian gray, and night at the museum 2!
