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.

We had breakfast at Banting as usual, and went to the market afterwards. Bought the ingredients and headed home. I only started to cook around 1pm. My weakness in cooking is that I AM SLOW! It can took me 2 hours to cook 2 dishes. Boo hoo hoo. Confirm kebuluran lah my family tunggu I habis masak kan.

Let's skip to the part where I panicked when I saw on top of my 'nasi lemak', the coconut milk was not mixed with the rice. Uh oh! But the rice was cooked perfectly, with the nice smell. Emmm emmm.. yummy! Me and Mr. Fruitheart scratched our heads. He said, maybe we need to pour in some more water. I doubted it. So I called my MIL, she's not picking up. Wanted to asked my mom, she was asleep. Then, I called my mother's friend.. Auntie Rose. Oh she was a really good cook. Hehe.

Me: Auntie Rose, Sorry lah kacau. Fara tengah masak nasi lemak ni. Nak tanye sikit.
Auntie Rose: Iye kenape Fara?
Me: Nasi tu dah masak elok dah. Tapi kat atas nasi tu, santan tu berkumpul. Terlebih santan ke?
Auntie Rose: Laa Fara kene kacau lah sampai bawah bagi dia rata kena semua. Nasi menjadi tak?
Me: Nasi jadi. Cuma santan tu je, terkumpul kat atas macam tu.
Auntie Rose: Kena kacau dia.
Me: Oo.. hehe. Nasib baik tak tambah air.
Auntie Rose: Tambah air? Nanti jadi bubur nasi le Fara oii. (Gelak)

Gosh! Lucky we didn't pour some more water inside. We laughed hard. Thank God, my family loved it and yes I managed to cook 'nasi lemak' on my own with the help of people around me. Yay me!

Mr. Fruitheart: Lepas ni boleh lah buka kedai nasi lemak depan rumah.
Me: Bluek!

P/S: It's not that hard to cook. You just need the correct ingredients, how to perform in the kitchen and of course people to eat your dishes. Haha..
