Pregnancy Brain

First Ever Nasi Lemak Made by Me

It's a long holiday here in Malaysia, due to Prophet Muhammad Birthday on Sunday. And Tuesday is Thaipusam celebration. I am at my parents house this week so as usual I am very eager to cook. Haha.

First time ever in my entire life, I cooked 'nasi lemak'. I must admit, I am not good cooking with 'santan' (coconut milk). But thanks to the internet, I got the recipe. And thanks to Mr. Fruitheart who was really helpful in the kitchen too.
