Madamoiselle & her Random-ness # 10 + Food Talk #15

:: Her Random-ness ::

It's been hectic in the past few days. I've been totally tired and have no intentions to go to work. But I have to, too bad. Like a zombie, I would go to work just for the sake of going but wasn't able to do much. Soo unproductive, so, sooo "pemalas". They say, "Semangat Rayakah?". Maybe so. Pasal raya tah aku mengalihzzz.. hehehe... Being in a new homey, everyone in the house are very keen in transforming it to a dazzling castle of ....??? Last Friday, my parents were out and asked the maid to tell me to do whatever I want to decorate the house. I know I love decorating but hey, me alone, decoring the house, nasib baik amah nda kana angkut. I took the whole day just decorating the living room and the dining room. I'm all puffed out by the end of the day. My parents though, are all busy with decorating their mini garden...bought lots of flowers and plants, no one would believe that we've just moved in almost a year ago!

Besides that, I've been eating out quite a lot lately. Last week, I had a big feast with my colleagues, having Sungkai at BOB Umie in Tamu Selera (As mentioned by Mummy Meow). I've always liked eating at that place. It's cheap and tummy filling and the food were superb. I especially liked the Steamed Fish and of course, the black peppered cockles. Never missed ordering those dishes. The sungkai turn out to be so much fun. We had 3 tables full of Steamed fish, Sambal BBQ fish, Black peppered Cockles, Sambal Prawns, Buttermilk Chicken, Fried Bean Sprouts, Fried Baby Kailans and "Gearbox" Soup. Banyak bah!. All for 15 tummies to be filled. It's our first big Eating-Hangout-Day that day and everyone, gladly, were in total satisfaction with the gathering. That's the day when I ate so much, so far during Ramadhan. Too much that I felt my tummy bloated with too much of scrumptious food. Teeheee... Didn't manage to take much of the pics though...were too busy 'laughing' and 'stuffing' with the gang.

Another eating event also took place at my eldest sister's home sweet home two weeks ago. I didn't manage to blog about this due to my busy schedule. The siblings and I decided to have a homemade Nasi Ayam, a fav. dish i prefer it home-cooked rather than buying or eating it elsewhere. hehehe... The best part about homemade is that, we tend to choose the best part of the chicken, which was the leg part / Thigh part... We love it. Soo Juicy. We had ten pieces of that part, even our nieces had theirs, all finished without waste. We also had Kerabu Udang and Rojak for the side dish and Cottage pie plus Ice cream Cocktail plus Marble Cheesecake plus Roti John for dessert. It was fun for us siblings as we hardly had time for all of us to get together and had a cooking session together-gether..hehehe.. Unfortunately I haven't got any nice pics for the food. So I'll juz show ya two of what we had.

Kerabu Udang made by my sis... niceee!!

Madamoiselle & The Diary #7

:: The Diary C'est La Vie ::

Dear Diary,

I'm not feeling well today. No, I'm not sick. I'm just hurt. Okay, it's more of being disappointed that is. Disappointed of myself, disappointed of him. It's a heartache to know somebody, you thought you knew him too well but you just don't understand him. So predictable yet confusing.

Last night, I could not sleep. I feel terrible. I said something harsh to him. I accused him a liar, half jokingly though. But it seems that he took it badly. He sounded hurt. By why would he, I could not understand. He knows who he is. He knows, he hides truth. And he never admits. Ego? Probably. All I know, I cared about him. Even when he lied. I wish he'd stop. I wish he would just tell the truth. How could he expect anyone to trust him if he trusts no one.

I am in an obvious doubt. I could not tell him. I could not do anything. I could not tell him that his lies would hurt him sooner or later. I don't want him to get hurt. But he would turn the table if i do tell him. He would accuse me for being a pessimist. And I'm not. All I wanted is the truth. All I wanted is an explanation. Everything that happens have a reason. Even God has a reason when He created Adam and Eve. So why can't he ever give any reasons. Why can't he tell so others can understand. Why???

I wish he could be more open. He once said he's afraid of getting hurt. Who doesn't? But being hurt makes you a better person. Nobody can escape from being hurt. I wish he could understand that. I wish he could understand more about life. I wish he knew, there are bigger things in life that could hurt anybody , anytime even if we don't want it to happen. Oh, how it hurts me that I cared about him so much. Am I a fool for ever liking him?

Now, I'm hurt. How can he handle big things when he couldn't handle a small one? Will I ever feel the same about him after this? :(
