Urap Kangkung (Water Spinach Salad) - Vegetarian

It’s always been my absolute, my moment to my pleasure to tweeting recipes. Recipes I pick up via my travelling meaningfulness. In other words, at each part of the world I am, I make sure I somehow or rather, either slyly or demurely ask for the recipes at the places I dine or pack food. Including at the streets. Or worst come to worst, I taste the food and figure out for myself what could possibly be the ingredients for those dishes. Of course, suffice to say, there are kind people in any part of the world who won’t mind sharing their recipes. Whereas, I believe it is a known fact that, there are also people who do or die, will safeguard, protect and defend their recipes like nobody’s business. Nevermind. Does not really matter. Because as a foodie adventurous person and someone who have been cooking various types of dishes from various continents for donkey years, furthermore, thanks to my hard earned money which has enabled me to travel to a number of countries as well, I am quite a

Nava K's Palak Paneer (Spinach Indian Cottage Cheese)

Hi Darlings,  Recipe of the day? Nava K’s Palak Paneer. Palak? Spinach ( Spinach Coconut Milk Stew , Spinach Potato & Spinach Chickpea ). Paneer?   Indian cottage cheese, which for a fact, you can make at home and homemade paneer without a doubt, is the best. Still, there is such a thing as store bought paneer. Supposedly, homemade, home style paneer you can pick up at the Indian stores for the matter of “convenience for cooking”. Not to say I have not had my hands-on experience to making paneer in my kitchen, yet, these days, since I prefer least time to cooking, I usually settle for the store bought ones. The store ones too, by far, are a great choice. Furthermore, these days, considering that such ingredients have travelled and are still travelling around the globe due to global trading, you get ample choices to various types of paneer at the Indian stores. Including in Malaysia, those made, sealed, embossed and transported from India. For this, my version to palak paneer, yea,

LOTUS MAKE-UP Micellar Cleansing Water

Cleansing! Cleansing your face. Of course. You should. In fact, you must for your own beauty sake. Do not, please, especially and primarily, hop into bed before removing whatever you have applied on your face for day. Apart from as well, after cleansing, go ahead with your night skin care routine. Otherwise? I beg to differ. Unless of course, you want your skin to age faster than your actual age or you prefer looking rundown. For me! My beauty discipline is the route to night cleansing before night care products atop my skin and in the morning, cleansing as well before day care skin care products atop my skin as well. Now, when we speak about cleansers, wouldn't you agree that there are  unlimited  choices?Definitely. Whether we prefer cleansing milk ( Garden of Eden Gentle Cleansing Milk ), cleansing oil, cleansing gel or, at this juncture, let’s get up, close and personal with cleansing water, specifically this Lotus Make-Up Micellar Cleansing Water. Which came home with me after

Chilli Cashew Stir Fried Veggies

I'm still like a yo-yo. Up-down, down-up, back and forth, and to and fro. My colorful life as usual. The things I juggle, remember I told and in case you have not read, click on this link Nurish Organiq Face Essence please. Alright. So much only I want to speak about "MyFiftySixLife" today and without wasting anymore time, let's zoom into the recipe for the day now. Chilli Cashew Stir Fried Veggies. The Chinese cooking style ( Chinese Style Eggplant , Stir Fried Oyster Mushroom , Jiu Hu Char , Bitter Gourd Omelette  & Mapo Tofu ) to a vegetarian Chinese vegetable dish and cashew nuts by far? As far as I know and as far as my cooking skills are a concern, Indians use cashew nuts as a thickening agent for curries or gravy dishes, whichever and whatever dish it may be. Whereas, for the Chinese, cashews are one of the ingredients for their stir fries. Okay. I'm done with the intro pitching for this recipe, because I got to get back to some the pending things I ha

Nurish Organiq 24K Gold Face Essence (Nurish Organiq 24K Gold Esen Wajah) 20ml

Time! Oh-dear-me-me. I’m like struggling for time, because I’m multi-tasking, I’m multi-skilling and I have more than enough on my plate. In fact, there’s so much to do and there’s only 24 hours in a day. Therefore, time for pitching my stories in this precious space of mine? Indeed, a struggle. Today, after teaching yoga which started at 7.30am, I told myself that I must squeeze in time for my blog pitching and here I am. Now, aside to whatever else I have to do for the day, when it’s time for resting my body, mind and body, no compromising on time. In other words, I make sure I shut down for the day by jumping, or hopping or crawling to bed. Yes please. My bed time is really precious and it must be for all of you because, sleeping is an important beauty element for our skin nourishment. Believe me when I say that, you can apply whatever you want on your face for skin beauty keeping, but if you don’t get your beauty sleep, doom! Dang as well. Early to bed, early to rise of course is t

Ponnanganni Keerai Poriyal (Sessile Joyweed/Dwarf Copperleaf Stir-Fry)

Ponnanganni Keerai? Mmmm! Honest to goodness, if I am to translate this leafy green veggie to English, or to another understandable language? I will fail. Fail massively. On the other hand otherwise, after reading from the visual world, which I did of course prior to pitching this recipe, I will crown myself as a   hero. Aha! Ponnanganni Keerai! Known as Alternanthera Sessilis, also as, Sessile Joyweed and Dwarf Copperleaf. You know what? To make this matter easier, later on, if, if, if, if at all you watch me in the video, you will get a clearer, better and easier picture on which leafy veggie is Ponnanganni Keerai. Ponanganni Keerai! The absolute to packing aplenty nutrients. So as well other vegetable dishes I have shared before ( Beans Turmeric , Spinach Potato , Murungai Keerai Poriyal , Vazha Koombu Thoran/Banana Blossom Fry , Bitter Gourd Chips & Spinach Tofu ) and this veggie, particularly and specifically, oh-my, the valuable nutrients to our eyes. Furthermore, you don’t

Biotique Advanced Ayurveda Bio Fruit Whitening Lip Balm

What else, what other beauty and skin care products tagged along with me when I returned home from my India trip ( Lakme Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color )? Oh-My- Mamma-Mia!   Quite a bundle of products suffice to say. But? This Silly-Billy- Nava K? Due to her beauty excitement, she completely forgot that even beauty and skin care products have expiry date. In other words they, like all of us, have their shelf life. Expiry Date! One of those things I actually brushed aside or I didn't bother checking. Damn! The flop and failure of Nava K. How heart wrecking. Because, by the time I wanted to use some of the products within the next 3/4 year, they have lapsed. They have kicked their bucket. Still, I couldn't comprehend why these products were available for sale since this is the first ever experience of mine. Never before for a fact. Like what? Taking customers like me for a beauty joyride? Ah? By the way, for your information, it wasn’t like I was hoarding the products or I di

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mughlai Style Vegetarian Korma

And so? Every now and then, or every often, we yearn for a different cooking style of the same dish. Of course. The same goes in my house. I mean, it can’t be the same cooking style for the same dishes all the time? No. It can’t be. This time, instead of my regularity to a similar Korma, or Kurma Gravy, or Curry, I did a different kinda Korma. Korma or Kurma ( Navratan Korma , Vegetable Kurma & Mutton Kurma ), I reckon is a popularity amongst the Indian community and perhaps, throughout the sub-continents of India ( Hyderabadi Biryani & Vegetable Kadhi ), also, other parts of the world. After all, food likings, food delights and food cooking from various part of the world, has, without a doubt, travelled throughout the globe. Therefore, the food of one country is the availability in other countries, and also, cooked by people like me in Malaysia who like to keep their food life interesting, trilling and aha, sex-citing as well. Sex-citing! Aha! If you are a true and true food

Vegetarian Bayam Masak Lemak (Spinach Coconut Stew)

Hi all you amazing and wonderful people.   How have you been? Hope all is well and extremely positively good. Me? What about me? I am doing good as well. Oh-well! It’s not all perfection, rosy and sunshiny all the time. But, I keep going positively. Even if things go wrong. Even if, every once a while or every now and then I feel the world has collapsed on my head. My life! Hah! A colourful life. Yea. I like to keep my life colourful.Always. The latest colors pop-yea-yea in my life? “Karthigai Deepam” Hindu religious festival. Also known as the “Festival Of Lights”, specifically the lights of Lord Shiva’s enlightenment and this festival, celebrated over a period of three days is about lighting the earthen lamps. For me, been like, in fact, I can’t even recall when was the last time I ushered this festival of lights. Most probably, I think, most probably, 30 over years ago. That too, during my growing up years in Brickfields when I was single and available. This year! Aha!. I just felt

Sweet Durian Porridge & Steamed Glutinous Rice (Serawa Durian & Pulut Kukus)

The typical, traditional, authentic Malaysian Malay dessert. Sweet Durian Porridge & Steamed Glutinous Rice, aka, Serawa Durian & Pulut Kukus. My-my! Durian lovers! You will love, love this absolutely delicious mouth watering, our Malaysian dessert. Yes. You will. Take it from this “The Crazy Lover”. What about the rest? The rest who are not so fancy frilly over the smell and tastes of durian? Why not? Try. You must. After all. Unless you try, you never know right? Furthermore, don’t discriminate food. Any kinda. Be adventurous. Be a joy and love to food of all walks of life. Including, of course, our Malaysian food is still the best and our desserts, ahhhh, they are such  a major delight ( Pulut Inti & Wajik Pulut ). Best in the world. Best out of the rest. Precisely. But, in any case, you have tried durian and durian is still a no go to? Replace durian with jackfruit or whatever and whichever fruit you believe can take the place of durian.

Garnier New Light Complete Whitespeed Whitening Serum

Why and what's with this "The Crazy Lover" and her beauty drawing story to and of Garnier New Light Complete Whitespeed Whitening Serum? What else. Possibly? One of the major concerns for her "My Fifty Six Life" Indian skin? Pretty much. The one hell of a hack pigmentation and dark spots. Hellish for a fact. No. They won't leave me alone. No matter what. No matter how careful I am. Despite applying sunblock and also, ensuring that I wear a scarf whenever I can't avoid the sun. Still? Damn frustrating. But you know what? My beauty motto? Never give up. Why on earth or heaven should I anyway. No. I won't. Henceforth, Garnier New Light Complete Whitespeed Whitening Serum? Furthermore. Remember I told you before.Whenever I am in Econsave ( Garnier White Speed Yoghurt Sleeping Mask )? Let alone whenever I pass by beauty stores, drugs stores and pharmacies?  Unavoidable . Least to least, a skincare product will return home with me.  This time. From Econsav

Tempe Orek (Indonesian Spicy Fermented Soy Beans)

Indonesian Food ( Ikan Cabe Ijo ). Indonesian Cuisine ( Terong Balado Pedas Manis ). Indonesian Cooking ( Sayur Lodeh ). Yes I am. I am the star. The number one, glittering, shining star. The star as an avid, number one fan of Indonesian food or Indonesian cuisine. I am also the glossy, twinkling and lighted up star as well to Indonesian cooking ( Sambal Goreng Teri ). Of course. I know. Self praise is a disgrace. Then again? Who cares? I don't because if you don't praise yourself, like what? You are waiting for others to praise you? Oh please. Cut the crab. Anyway , I am without a doubt, the cooking star in my kitchen. In my own ways as the Indonesian chef in my house. But not like kinda, I have cooked a whole, long stretch of Indonesian dishes. The essentials though. The most probably, famed ones though ( Ikan Balado ) and my trip to Indonesia a couple of years ago? Oh-My-My-Love ( Surakarta/Solo ). The daily food love affair to Indonesian food happiness, which included the v

Good Virtues Co Brightening Night Cream

A big or biggest no-no in the beauty department or compartment for "I am every woman" out there, is, not clearing out whatever you have applied for the day on your face before your beddy-by time. In other words, it has to be the vital "beauty terms and conditions" to a totality of, cleansing off your skin care and make-up ( Lakme Matte Lip Color ), before crawling, hopping, jumping or rolling on your bed. Otherwise? Sulk and complain about your dry like the drought skin, or the acnes, pimples or uneven, lifeless skin. Or worst to worst. A better idea will be? Be a jealous or envious beauty pig by bitching about women whose skin is glowing ke the stars or moon. Women who care for their skin. Aha! I hope what I have said, have or will knock tremendously beauty common sense into your one and only brain? Hopefully. Keeping my fingers crossed. 

Sambal Style Sardine Fry

This sardine cooking story in my house? Always, forever and I am absolutely  certain  will go on, and on. Either every now and then, or for a fact, I reckon, every often like a rapid fire or towering inferno.  What's with sardines in my house if your curiousity is killing you? In other words, why sardines are one of our food prides? Actually, you know what? I really don't have an absolute answer for you. Perhaps better be said as, because fish is sort of a favourite in my house ( Western Style Pan Grilled Spicy Salmon ,  Nyonya Fish Curry  &  Ikan Goreng Asam Jawa ), and sardines, especially, since our local catch, they are pretty, really affordable and mind you, tastiness as well. Regardless, whether the fresh ones or canned sardines ( Sardine Varuval  &  Sardine Peratal ). Sardines! Yea. There will always be the favourites to sardines like sardine curries ( Nadan Fish Curry ), or the Malaysian, our chilli based and chilli cooked sardine side dishes. For me personally,

Lakme Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color (With Argan Oil) - Chocolate Brownie

Honestly and sincerely, I don't know about you beauties. Really I don't. Neither would I like to? Assume. Because. Assumption. As you know or don't. Is the mother of major fuck-ups. Thus? Lets not even bother dwelling on assumption or assuming what not furthermore. Anyway. For me. Lipsticks. For me of course. Lipsticks. All the yeses ( Sephora Rouge Lip Tint ). If I can, I would also love a whole range of lip colors in various shades and from various brands. Aha! Wishful beauty thought right? I know. Still. At the end of it all. Our budget is the deciding factor for which brand we settle for and how many lip colors will be atop of our dressing table. This Lakme Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color (with Argan Oil)? I bought in India and India ( Himalaya in Kochin Kerala ,  Banjara's Kasturi Turmeric Face Pack  &  Biotique Bio Morning Face Lotion ) The country where you will be spoiled for choices for makeup and skin care products. As in, the highest trend for natural i

Sabah (East Malaysia) - Nava K's Discovery (Part 3)

Day 5 in Sabah. Off for another two, facing the beach sight viewing ( Sabah Part 2 & Sabah Part 1 ). How did it go? By this day. Hah! I somehow managed to put the Sabah jigsaw puzzle into perspective for getting a clearer picture of what is going on. Without a doubt. My smartness. Yea. Mine alright. My smartness concluded that, my so called advisers didn't do their homework about any damn thing in Sabah. Apart from wrong projections on land prices, they had almost nil knowledge about land transactions, nor any clue what soever about the business indicators in Sabah. Damnit! On the contrary, I must thank some of the good people I came in contact with. They actually making it a point in sharing their expertise unselfishly on the hidden, unspoken and nitty-gritty business insights in Sabah. Furthermore, aha, I had also done my fair share of homework before leaving home, particularly on native land purchasing and how complicated it can be. Anyway. Anyhow. As frustrated as I was. I

Western Style Pan Grilled Spicy Salmon

Salmon! Of course. Why not? Salmon. I must admit, is a favorite in my house. Furthermore, when its a matter of mind over matter for cooking salmon, oh yes, easy cooking and cooked in a jiffy. Salmon also, on the whole is tastiness by itself and just a couple of ingredients will do the job as well ( Grilled Salmon ). Of course, if you want to elevate the tastes of salmon further to another higher level for other dishes? You can and you should ( Burmese Biryani & Thai Fish Noodle Soup ). What about how much will you pay for salmon? Definitely higher compared to our Malaysian local catch, yet, I don't mind spending the extra. Not always, but every now and then will do ( Indian Spiced Salmon ). Furthermore, even if its fresh salmon, the frozen ones can be a perfect fit for any dish you have on mind. Me and salmon? Certainly. Absolutely. Without a doubt ( Tandoori Salmon  &  Lemon Butter Salmon ).  

Sabah (East Malaysia) - Nava K's Discovery (Part 2)

Day 3 in Sabah ( Sabah Part 1 ). Hello Kota Kinabalu by 6.30am. Well! Oh well, well, well! Sleeping in a hotel room. Even if its the best room in the world? Even how tired I am. Never been like the best sleep, because, the best sleep for me, has to be my humble bed at home. Furthermore. Over the last  year or so, I've developed the habit to, like some, or all of you, who believe in, early to rise, early to shine is the key to starting your day promisingly. Also, the first thing for me when I wake up. Even before brushing my teeth. Of course. After a glass of warm water. The health is wealth trend. Next will be. Has to be. Must be. The aroma and taste of a cuppa of coffee for a fabulous, positive happy morning start up. Folllowed by, least to least, one full circle and cycle of "Surya Namaskar (Yoga Sun Salutation) gratiifying gratitude to the morning sun. Therefore, this day starting off on the same note. Water, coffee culture, and me the yoga practitioner respecting the sun.

Burmese Masoor Dal. Burmese Dal Gravy.

Dal, or dhal. However you want to spell. Dal. One of the family members of legumes. Dal. Without a doubt, synonymous for Indian cooking, including for Nava K's Indian household cooking and I know that, dal is an appreciated ingredient for other types of cuisines as well. My dal recipes? Aha! Tadaa! Here we go ( Udupi Sambar , Palakura Pappu , Andra Sambar  &  Punjabi Sabut Moong Da l ). What about dal in Burma, now known as Myanmar? Absolutely. Down the memory lane of Indians from India and spreading their dal cultural cooking heritage in Myanmar. The question now is? How do I know about Burmese Masoor Dal? Hah! Been there. Done it. Been to Myanmar, and have tasted their dal dishes. My story. This is my story. My Burmese or Myanmar food story, alongside my dal cooking story ( Mulligatawny Soup , Tanni Saar  & Dal Rice ). By the way, for your information. This Masoor Dal Gravy. Sure. Must be regarded as a close cousin, to the varies types of Indian Dal Curries or Gravies ( F

Sabah (East Malaysia) - Nava K's Discovery (Part 1)

Finally! Me and Sabah? Yes. Indeed. Me in Sabah at the earliest date in the month of February. Finally!! Yes. Can you believe it? After Nava K being on or in this earth for the last 56 years. Before. Even before, or whilst Covid 19 was getting upbeat and ready for showing its true colors, and before this virus crushing, crumbling and tumbling on my travelling life and style. Now, what's with me tripping in, on, over, above, under and about Sabah? Aha! The big dreams of mine. The future goals of mine. Which mind you, ending up as a major massive, thundering disappointment. To tell you the truth, I was utterly shattered. I was utterly broken into pieces. Until, I felt like, each and every part of me, including my inner wings of emotional strength, were like, torn and tattered into pieces. Duh! Doomer to whatever I wanted to achieve in Sabah for my future. 

Nyonya Fish Curry. Nyonya Curry Fish

Nyonya Cuisine. Nyonya Food. Nyonya cooking and Nava K? Yes. Yes. Yes. Shouldn't I or should I proudly profess that I am a Nyonya food hero ( Ikan Buah Keluak  &  Ayam Buah Keluak )? Why not? I know self praise can be a disgrace, then again? Don't we all, can't we all ought to be proud of our achievements? We must for a fact ( Nyonya Mee Siam ,  Nyonya Curry Laksa  &  Nyonya Lam Mee ). We absolutely should. Without doubting our capabilities and abilities. Furthermore. I am proud. Yes I am. My credentials in culinary arts. Though in the specific niche area of Bread Making and Patisserie. Of course, self learning can be regarded as learning as well? Building from the base of knowledge and learning curve we have obtained? Where has this learning curve led me to? Having cooked and still learning by improving my knowledge, skills and abilities by cooking various dishes from various contingents. Recipe of the day? For show casing my "know how" to Nyonya rec

Chinese Herbal Pork Soup

I love this, or the whole idea of making Chinese soups. Yes. I do. I do. I do. Mainly because? Chinese soups. They are such an easy Chinese style uncomplicated cooking. Furthermore. Chinese soups. On the whole. Nutritious, healthy, whether the vegetarian versions ( Vegetarian Chinese Winter Melon Soup , Old Cucumber Soup , Chinese Tofu Soup  & Burdock Root Soup ) or non-vegetarian versions as well, and for me personally, Chinese soups, they are such a delightful appetizing food eating world. Basically, I simply adore Chinese soups. Love, love, love and all the loving loved loves in the food world for Chinese soups. Made before. Of course I have. I mean, it has to be when I am also an avid food fan of Chinese food overall. Including the various types of Chinese noodle soups too ( Chinese Vegetarian Noodle Soup , Chinese Chicken Noodle Soup , Bee Hoon Sou p & Sichuan Noodle Soup ).

Pulau Pangkor (Perak) - Masi Magam Thiruvalla 2020

Back from India by the first week of December, 2019 ( New Delhi North India )? Of course. You know me? Me. The me, myself and I anytime me? Yea. Anytime. At any given time. Me? Always like, on your mark, ready, steady and go. Anything goes. As long as? Yessss!! Out of my home zone galloping again. Actually, I already have my plan in place. In the pipeline for this year, 2020. Two overseas trips. Confirmed and affirmed. Still? I wanted, a in between escape route beyond the borders and boundaries of my home. Anyway. Before anything else? Aha! Thaipusam, Lord Murugan and myself? Vel Vel Murugan for a different reason this year ( Thaipusam Batu Caves 2020 ).

Thaipusam Batu Caves 2020 - Nava K & Her Service to Lord Murugan

Religionism and Nava K? Are we? We. The both of us. Are we the closest, cannot live without each other best friends? Yes. Why not. What about, can we be regarded as close cousins, or is there the strength, the strongest bond of love between us? Absolutely. Without a doubt. All the yesses! After all? Religionism and Nava K? This lady and her Hindu religion? She. Born and bred as a Hindu and she will remain as a Hindu for the years she has on this earth. Then again? You know what? Strange. Really strange. I only started learning about Hinduism just, about a year ago. Just a year ago. Can you believe it? Though, I thought, I knew my Hindu credentials at the back of my hand. Sadly. Very sad. Tragically so sad. Because? The reality has been otherwise. To a certain extent, I knew the gist of my religion. But after starting my journey. My journey to embracing Hatha Yoga, which is now part and parcel of my life, the desire in me towards my religion? Spiralled. Until, I started, learning o

New Delhi - North India (Day 2)

New Delhi. Day 2 ( Delhi Part 1 ). Winter. Last winter. Winter. This winter. This first week of December winter specifically? Winterrrrrrrr! Oh-no! One hack of a winter. Winter, as if, getting ready for showing its true colors in full force. Full force lashing most probably by the next few days. Winter! Oh my god! Oh your god! Winter literally penetrating, pricking and needling me, deep, deep into my skin and further deeper into my tiny bones. You know what? I struggled. Massively. I had a hard time putting up with winter which was clinging on to me like a lost child. Furthermore, wouldn't just leave me alone. The breeze. Especially. Blowing up, down, and aha, even in between my legs. Until? Not only my fingers and toes were frozen, even inside my "Pussy Willow" and the pussy willow of mine, trembling quivering. Oh boy!

Watsons Milk Yogurt Lotion Blackcurrant

Skin! Yes. Skin alright. Your skin. My skin. Female skin. Male skin. Also, whether the "thick skin" (ahem) or thin skin of ours. Hahaha! Skin. Skin we didn't have a choice in choosing, skin we were born with and skin, covering, every part of our body. Including? Pow! Skin down there as well. Down where? There. Mmmm!! Interesting start right? I know. Why not by the way? After all, we are adults, are we not? We are. I believe so. Unless otherwise? Some of you have not grown up yet or you prefer not growing up? I don't know. Not for me to decide anyway. You figure it out for yourselves. Whereas, I seriously think, there is no harm done if we allocate some time for speaking about our skin on our intimate area or private part. Shall we? We shall. In fact, we must speak about our skin on, around, closest, nearest to our "Wild or Mild Pussy Cat" Or "Short Or Long John" for one particular reason. The hygiene, hygienic factor factoring for keeping our p

Malaysian Egg Curry/Kari Telur Malaysia

Malaysian Egg Curry. Aka, Kari Telur Malaysia. Or Malaysian Muttai, or Kottai (opphs no!! Slip of the tongue is not the fault of the mind?) Kulambu. Now, is this Malaysian Egg Curry, made in Nava K's kitchen anything outstanding? Or out of this world? Or, anywhere close or closest to a Michelin star cooking? Nope. Not at all. I'm cock certain it is not. But? Aha? If you are looking for the most simplest, easy to put together, easy cooking style egg curry, this is it. This Malaysian Egg Curry by this, "The Crazy Lover". As the best fit for you and trust me. Rest assured. Without compromising on the much loved, quintessential, bolstering, thundering and rekindling your hunger profoundly curry. The best part of it all? Just a couple, yep, the coupling of the basic, pantry friendly ingredients, which most probably, you stock up at home?

Freeman Bare Foot Repairing Cracked Heel Treatment

My feet? I told you before right? Yes I did ( Watsons FootEase Cracked Heel Cream ). My feet? They are a disaster. Major. Disaster. On-going disaster. The disastrous cracks and dry skin on my feet ( DU'IT Dry Foot & Heel Roll-A-Balm )? Damn! They won't leave me alone. No. They won't. Oh well! I guess? Never mind. I've accepted them as part of my aging process. Moreover, for someone like me who can't avoid the wear and tear of the feet due to housework, also, me a fidgety person who can't sit still? Like I have worms up my ass? Aha. Then again? Even for those who don't pay attention to their feet, or conveniently fail to gasp the fact that, feet can get run down or worn out, due to dryness and pressure? Of course. The same is applicable ( Dr CHECK Cracked Heel Cream ). Apart from the same feet or foot theory as well, for those who suffer or struggle with feet dryness and cracks due to "Health Is Not Wealth", and for those of you who have men

New Delhi - North India (Winter Time)

Delhi. Old Delhi or New India? New. New Delhi. Two days in New Delhi, the morning after Agra ( Agra  & Jaipur Rajasthan ). Delhi at our helms by 1.30pm, after, almost, 5 hours of road tripping. Delhi. The capital city of India, and Delhi, which was the landing right of ours as well. As in? Meaning? In other words? Delhi is where we landed on the first day, for kick starting this, North India tour of ours ( Varanasi ), and Delhi, yes, will be our closure too. Closure? Closure as in? Up, up in the air. Delhi sky high up. When night has fallen in Delhi. We will be flying sky high for grounding back, on the ground of our mother land or father land, Malaysia. Delhi. The city to messy massive traffic. What else, by the way, is new in other parts of India as well? Almost the same story ( Chennai South India ). Let alone, the honking that can literally rip your ears apart, plus, Oh-God-Oh-No. The sheer number of crowded congested human traffic in Delhi? Pretty much? Mmmm!! Welcome to t

‘Buka Puasa’ Food Donation for Pangsapuri Bestari Resident (April 16th, 2020)
