I have to say I had quite productive weekends.
Woke up on Saturday with full 8 hours of beauty sleep (I’m one positive kid.) Get my a week loads of laundry done, weekly toilet scrubbing, kenduri at one of Mr C’s friends, short nap, went to Shah Alam Stadium for Liga Super Match, JDT vs Selangor. Not supporting any of them coz I am a big fan of The Ngap Sayot. I purposely tagged along just to make fun of Mr C if JDT lose the match. Aaannd they lost big that night.
Selangor 4 – JDT 1
I still love you, C. You’re so cute I want to pinch your cheeks.
D4RUL T4KZ1M RAWKKSS!!
But that’s not the highlight of the week.
The real big thing happened on Sunday. I went to Muah’s for a project.
So Muah has been asked by her colleague to be one of the instructors for “Aneka Laksa” class, so obviously, she’s going to cook Laksa Sarawak.
FYI, Jabatan Kolej Komuniti has this one program annually where they’re going to organise weekend classes for public and there’ll be varieties of classes for you to choose, depending on what they’ve plan for you to learn on that particular year. The one I joined last time had classes like “Aneka Kuih Talam” , “Aneka Pastri”, “Baju Kurung Tradisional”, “Buju Kurung Moden” and some crafts classes.
So I signed up for “Baju Kurung Tradisional” class and it didn’t end well. Making a Baju Kurung is a hard work, man !!!!! It literally costs me tears, blood and sweat.
I gave up my long time fashion designer dream that day. Tragic. I hate sewing machine. No. Sewing machine doesn’t love me.
I should’ve signed up for “Aneka Kuih Talam” or “Aneka Pastri” class or the craft class that only need you to master the basic sewing skills like jahit jelujur, silang pangkah or sembat.
So back to the big thing we did on Sunday. Muah and I actually made Laksa Sarawak, without the help of Haji Manan Laksa Paste or the Cap Burung Paste or any Laksa Sarawak paste you can find.
We did it from the scratch, people.
FROM .THE. SCRATCH.
It’s quite of an achievement actually. If it’s not because of this, I would not know that we actually need sesame and peanut to make the laksa paste. It took us a lot of patience to finally make the laksa to taste like laksa. It took us 3-4 hours to cook the laksa broth!!! If not, it tastes like kuah kacang.
Even my mom never cooks laksa Sarawak without the help of the instant paste.
However, we felt like the broth’s taste was still not quite ‘there’ yet, you know, just not like the one we usually had at Cafe Ceria. We felt like we’re missing something, that we yet to discover, an ingredient to make our laksa has that kick, you know. But it sure tastes better that the one at KIA. Hahaha.
Anyway, we were actually so happy with our little accomplishment that we even thought to come out with our own laksa paste, maybe later, after some improvisations and more tries.
Hey, one can dream okay.
We even thought of the potential name of our product. One of the best ideas (of course, from yours truly) is “Dayang Azie Pes Laksa”. Just adding the “Dayang” for the authentic Sarawak bits.
We baked Bingka Cheese before the laksa project, and it’s heavenly delicious!!!!
So that’s how my weekends went productive this week. No photos because I forgot to bring my camera. The berry camera will not gonna serve you the gastronomic pleasure as it should be. OK. I’m just lazy.
