Malaysian, and Malaysian, and Malaysian (Malaysian Chettinad Mutton, Malaysian Banana Flambe & Malaysian Style Sambal Sandwich). Another Malaysian hops in today. Malaysian Vegetarian Spaghetti. I suppose its the power of your thinking capacity for proving that any dish is possible in our Malaysian ground. Of course based on your years of cooking experiences you have garnered for reinventing recipes (Mee Siam Kuah Vegetarian, Mee Rebus Vegetarian, Vegetarian Nyonya Laksa, Vegetable Noodle Soup & Vegetarian Fried Mee Hoon)? I can actually stretch the list to the various types of vegetarian noodle dishes I have already shared as far as I want. Then again, let's just keep it brief, short and sweet. Malaysian Vegetarian Spaghetti. I don't think I need to tell you how to cook spaghetti by itself. Look at the instructions on the packet and you will do fine. For the rest, the ingredients and how to cook, you must need my recipe. Mine only for this Malaysian style sambal based spaghetti sauce in which there will be grilled tofu and peas, and atop spaghetti. Plus, of course, grated cheese is like customary for a spaghetti dish.

So far so good. No complaints whatsoever. Hokkaido so far has been a favourable travelling gram for all of us. Well planned and executed as per our itinerary and all's well that ended well for the last 3 days (Chitose & Hokkaido, Hokkaido Japan & Noboribetsu). In fact, its been an absolute winter ball of a time sightseeing, except, believe me, as I have already told you earlier, winter in Hokkaido during this tripping of ours was really utterly crazy. One of the coldest we were told and we ourselves had also figured it out, oh-my, never have I experienced this kinda weather nor I want to in the near future. Then again, come to think of it, our Malaysian hot weather too is a killer. But because our Malaysian born and bred blood is quite accustomed to mostly sweating and perspiring, our coping mechanism is pretty much in place. Winter in Hokkaido on the other hand mind you, honestly, almost body ruined me. Anyway, was there anything I could have done? Nothing much actually. Weather definitely is beyond my control. Unless I lock myself in my room and say no to sightseeing? Logically, silliness right? Since we have paid for coming this far for supposedly, recommended by many as Hokkaido winter wonder? Inevitably. Starting off on the same note on day, all that getting ready by showering and what not, and tucking into the fab huge buffet breakfast spread for option between the Japanese and Western items I must tell you was a sincere food pleasure, prior to us departing to Sapporo.

And the list goes on and on for egg dishes (Fried Egg Oyster Sauce). All sorts believe me. Eggs being the glistering ingredient in my house (Kiri Hodi/Egg Sodhi, Egg Vindaloo, Egg Curry Masala, Egg Rasam, Egg Potato Curry & Beansprout Omelette). Furthermore, what about sambal? Lemme just quote two. Otherwise, we will all go mad on which to opt for (Sambal Goreng Teri & Sambal Belimbing Ikan Bilis). Today, its egg and sambal lovingly hugging each other in this Sambal Tumis Telur. Nevertheless, not the ordinary Egg Sambal. Different. Of course. When I myself am a class of my own, so must be my Sambal Tumis Telur. What is different? I added dried shrimps and I also added grown in my garden basil leaves for the beautiful aroma. Power! Attractive, vibrant, spicy, tangy Sambal Tumis Telur.

Pop-Yeehah-Yeehah! Here we are coming to winter lust over you Noboribetsu. Indeed. A day in Noboribetsu is indeed the day today. Up from bed, shower time, winter clothing covered from top to toe and breakfast (Hokkaido Japan & Chitose & Hokkaido), off we left for our said destination. Taking a comfort break in between our one hour plus journey, of course much needed mainly for easing ourselves. Winter and often loo calling seemingly is something I can't put two and two together. Then again, even during normal weather, water drinking while travelling is a required unspoken rule for keeping hydrated and mind you, oh-boy, Chinese people can really drink up. Notably amongst our tour buddies, we the only two Indian skin also realise that water drinking is quintessential particularly during winter for preventing skin drying out and flaking.

Me the mutton lady? What do you think? You think I should wear the mutton crown? Maybe (Mutton Parathal, Masala Mutton Curry, Pepper Mutton Curry & Easy Mutton Curry)? Evidently. When you have been faithfully cooking mutton for your Indian husband and by doing so, you have also sharpened your cooking skills to the various types of mutton dishes. Out came from my kitchen to our dining table on this particular day? Malaysian Chettinad Mutton Curry. Why a Chettinad version? Look, I have already exhausted every avenue for this style and that style of mutton curries. So, by far, I went further and further and towards India for picking up another mutton curry (Shahi Mutton Curry & Aloo Gosht). In fact, I have even headed to Pakistan (Peshawari Mutton Karahi). What else should I tell you? Actually, come to think of it, we don't mind lamb too (Lamb Rogan Josh), but nothing like a spicy mutton dish outrightly. Why a Malaysian version to Chettinad Mutton Curry? Me the Malaysian must bring my country Malaysia in. Sense and sensibility right (Mutton Pepper Masala & Devil's Curry)? Malaysian Chettinad Mutton Curry! Oh, what a mutton spicy mutton curry mouth joy (Mutton Dalca & Mutton Bone Marrow Curry).

Honestly, to tell you the truth, at my age, in my fifties, precisely 53, I really don't have much friends. Its my choice anyway and not because of anything else. I actually prefer least friends. Of course, as you know or don't, friends money spending buying is an open secret longest known, I can also actually, but I choose not to because I like my few friends life now and for the years to follow. Truly, I am inner me happy with the countable uncomplicated number of friends I have who can accept me for the bold, daring, freedom of speech, open minded, direct and straightforward, no holds barred person I am. Great. What else should I desire for? From this group of smallest friends, two of them, a couple actually, they extended a food outing and they too picked the venue. Bamboo Park Restaurant. Located on the ground floor of this business park which by far I am alien to. In fact, don't be surprise if I tell you that Sunway PJ51A is unknown to me. Shocking right? Maybe because Sungei Way is not the Sungei Way it used to be. Developed tremendously over the years until today we have this area known as Sunway PJ1A.

Always and forever, the first night away from home is the most difficult night to sleeping. In fact, this matter to sleeping while travelling has always and I think will always be a code non cracker for me. Hammer house of horror scariness mostly is the main reason, thankfully, during this Hokkaido/Sapporo travel venturing, I had my other half-half, the love of my life with me. That pretty much calmed me down from ghost haunting playing on my mind and of course, on the other hand, for winter snazzy cuddling, warmth lovey-dovey bed time. Still, when you have to sleep over in a bed which is not your familiar home bed, it will I guess, no matter what, be an interrupted sleeping rhythm. Most to most, I reckon both of us slept for maybe 4 to hours. Up by 7.00pm for showering and believe me, layering yourself in winter clothes can eat up on your time as well. To the dining area by 8.00am, we tucked into the favourable spread. Great meal. My kinda meal of all sorts. My-My! Utterly satisfying Western, Asian and Japanese food goodness.
