The truth must prevail. Of course. If you have peeped into other peoples' recipe, you must admit. You must also credit (balannambiar). Pretty much says it all? But no. Believe me. I didn't wholeheartedly copy. My style is always my style. Though the idea came from the source I have already linked and I actually, I quite know it as well to a Chinese style mee udang (Hokkien Hae Mee). Maybe both in tandem or a distance from each other in terms of the gravy. Yet, prawn shells are the crux. And for Penang Mee Udang, making the gravy is quite a time taking technic. Yet it's all worthiness. Me and Penang cooking (Penang Acar, Penang Curry Mee, Penang Asam Laksa & Penang Hokkien Mee)? Me and prawns as well (Sambal Udang Pete & Prawn Curry Laksa)? Me and noodles dishes too (Maggi Goreng Mamak & Mee Goreng Udang)? Overall, Penang Mee Udang is simply splendid. Really and really mouthwatering. Trust me. Believe you. I bet you won't be disappointed despite, the list of ingredients and like I have already told you, time may be the other.

Gender equality, women's right, freedom to women's speech, plunging through the glass ceiling, so on and so forth, honestly, I think we all are good at preaching or even without thinking twice, we profess on each and every of these contexts on social media. But lemme tell you that once I started seeing the world on my own (Chiang Rai/Chiang Mai), I realize many of us are living our lives like the katak dibawah tempurung/frog under a coconut shell. Really, believe me you. Until I am so tired of explaining to each and every one I bump into while travelling why I am solo trip-travelling. Unbelievable the questions people throw at me, some of course will go to the extent of plotting their own theories like I must be a lonely woman, I am divorced or I don't have friends or whatever, ever and ever. Goodness gracious. God save these people please (Dubai, Libra Cruise & Phuket).

Ennai Kathirikai Kuzhambu! In layman's terms, Ennai Kathirikai Kuzhambu is a kind of brinjal curry. Simply as that and let's keep it that way instead of complicating our food cooking matter. And when I speak about brinjal or even aubergine on the whole, pretty much quite a regularity in my house. Brinjal can be considered as our favourite and any which way it is cooked (Thai Style Eggplant, Japanese Saute Eggplant, Eggplant Tikka & Brinjal Stir Fry), we love it. But seemingly, its like a habit of mine in adding brinjal into curries or gravies (Nadan Meen Curry, Goan Prawn Curry & Vegetable Kurma). Of course, the stir fried styles (Terong Balado, Bengali Begun Bhaja & Baingan Bharta) does come into our food picture as well. Today, obviously, brinjal in curry. A vegetarian curry. Overall, a spicy, tangy, attractive, vibrant and exciting to your palates curry.

Staying fit through our 50s I suppose is easier to preach, but when it comes to putting it into perspective, we can fail. I know. I am with all of you ladies who are agreeing. Tell me about it. Not only we have aged, our literally every part of our body has aged with us as well. I suppose ageing is part and parcel of life, no doubt about it, I don't think we can bounce back our body to how it used to be when we were younger. Admittedly, the reality bullet of life does bite into our shape and size, and for ladies like me who have gone through childbirth and motherhood, additionally, the years of managing our career and home affairs, trust me, the practically of behind our doors life does take a toll on our body and looks too. Unless of course if you are a lady of leisure. Money, time or being married to someone who glorifies the ground you walk lets accept will have an impact of staying fit through our 50s. Therefore we shouldn't get carried away with the young memes, or supermodels or rich and famous ladies who flaunt their body and shape on social media. I for once don't fall for such people because I am another ordinary and average woman like most of you.

Another love rekindling travel of ours, trust me, I didn't expect South Africa will be where I will be landing (Copenhagen & Bergen). Never, not at all in my slightest moment I would have imagined I will be stepping foot in South Africa. Oh-my! What a joy. A joy which kept playing on my mind for the last one year or so, ever since we started planning for here we are coming to get you South Africa (Rome & Verona/Milan). By the way, lemme tell you that exploring South Africa was not bestowed because we knocked on heaven's door. Knocking on heaven's door may have gotten to god's ears, but without us relentlessly working our butts out, South Africa most probably would have remained unshaken forever as our life long travelling mission. Basically, we saved as much as we could. Saving and not by fluke shot for this rather pricey South Africa 10 days 7 nights holiday.

It's still as good as ever to your senses in Ticklish Ribs & ‘Wiches. Ambiance still a fit perfect, clean and well maintained, and I doubt if I noticed any changes to their facade. Maybe yes or maybe no, sincerely, I don't think so, everything, believe me, obviously is pretty much as welcoming as before in Ticklish Ribs & 'Wiches. As far as I know also, their signature dishes, without a doubt, are making a lasting impact on every other customer. Each one of it is notably growing as a stronghold fort and my favourite, faithfully mine BBQ Ribs is definitely amongst them. My biggest babi mission on this day was none other, except for getting up, close and personal on what's latest on their menu. Thank you to TC for patiently explaining, whether I 100% paid attention, I better not even mention it. Well, you can't blame me. My thinking cap can last only for, lets say the first 15 minutes most to most, and not the fault of TC who no holds barred unselfishly spoke and pointed to the dishes on the menu. I think he did notice me getting fidgety, to a certain extent he also realise that I am pretending to listen, when in actual fact, I was more interested in looking around. Sorry TC, I promise I will try to behave myself if we meet again. Nevertheless, I still manage to sum up the gist of our conversation. Simply said, I was told that there are now other new inventions in Ticklish Ribs & 'Wiches. Yeh, I got it right. Tadaa!

Myanmar (Myanmar Across The Border Of Mae Sai) literally ran over me like a big hot furnest bulldozer. Massive traffic in all directions between the cluttered roads, motorbikes and cycles, dust flying all over and weather really got to me. Sweat dripping soaking wet within the few hours, no, no, don't get me wrong. I am not sulking nor complaining. After all, what is travelling if you can't put up with expecting the expected or unexpected? There's by the way no guarantee to none while travelling, I guess we have to make do with it for the best or worst which in return does do a whole lot of good by exposing us to seeing and understanding how different parts of the world is functioning differently than ours. But if by any chance you are not someone who is apt for exploring the not nice context of travelling, I suggest you sit at home Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai Day 2 & Chiang Mai Day 1) and grow old as a grumpy pot.
