I have 30mins left before lunch time and my sweater and working pants are full of cookie debris..comot gila aku makan.
This is basically how I am everyday at work. If my car needs refueling, in the morning when I head to work I’ll buy anything on the counter at the nearest Petronas, walaupun tak sedap mana I know I have to eat either a nasik lemak/nasik goreng/sandwich along with a small bottle of Orange Sunkist/Ribena/Yeos Soya drink. Sometimes when I’ve had enough of Petronas food, I will inform my colleague to buy the most sinful nasik lemak I’ve ever tasted coz nasik dahla menimbun, walaupun I ask for nasik lemak biasa je, but the combination of the sambal and the telur rebus and the nasik yg berlemak tu ooh soooo sinful that 30mins later mata den dah jadi kuyu coz ngantuk hahaa. Before I head to the petrol station, the first think I would do when I wake up is to head straight to the kitchen and eat a bowl of cereal. Tak mandi tak gosok gigi lagi tu, celik mata je terus ngapppppp makan. Hehe then baru mandi. Before I head out, if there is a bun or bread, I will eat a slice spread with butter. Once i’m at the office, every 2 hours I’ll be munching a cookie, a sandwich, a chewing gum, a Mentos, a small packet of Twisties, a fruit. Basically I will be eating.
Mcm rojak sket kan paragraph atas tu. Huhu sorry.
But the one and only dish that I constantly yearn to eat, tahap dah merengek² dah dgn sang suami complaining to him that it’s SO BLOODY HARD for me to eat is….
sweet sour fish!
Both husband and I are not fish lovers. He totally loathe fish, masih saiko lagi dgn alkisah silam zaman kekanak tercekik tulang ikan terus dibannya ikan from his menu for the rest of his life. He only eats sardine and ikan bilis and fish nugget/fillet hehe. I on the other hand, prefers ikan yg berkuah. So, I only eat sweet sour fish and kari ikan besides sardine la. I’m not a fan of ikan goreng, ikan bakar, ikan ape saja la. Soooo…….I dunno why since I got preggy, the need for SSF (short form for sweet sour fish ye, bukan kedai deco tu tau!) has been increasing like mad. Sesket nak ikan, sesket nak ikan..hubby dah menggaru pale how la to satisfy the wife because :
a) Kedai tomyam like Vicchuda at my housing area sells gigantic siakap masam manis like the pic above. I asked the price, it’s about RM38. Ish tak kuasa aku nak spend sebanyak tu and eat dat huge fish all by myself..
b) I can’t cook. Dah enter 2nd trimester pon I can’t enter the kitchen. I can’t cook, kenot tahan bau, kenot tahan bau nasik tengah masak, so for me to cook the dish on my own is OUT.
c) Hubby still doesn’t have the courage to cook the dish yet.
d) the only kedai that has sweet sour fish in variety of sizes and jenis ikan..could be tenggiri, bawal, kembung cut in small pieces is only at Seri TTDI @ TTDI Jaya which we could only go during the weekend. Imagine my ordeal having to wait for 5-6 days before dapat ngap seciput ikan? Urghh.
There was an instance that he actually drove all the way from his work place on a working day to that place, just to tapau that dish for me hehehe..parents plak kali ni jarang plak balik Shah Alam, if not bole heret dorang mkn siakap..huwaaa!
But everyday my need for food changes. Like now, I want karipap. Yes karipap. Kat mana la nak dpt karipap at 11 in the morning? hehe. And I want cokodok pisang. Gahhh tension gile! And then I specifically wants karipap sold by anyone out there yg berniaga di tepi jalan bwh payung kaler²..tanak dari kedai mkn ke frozen food ke petronas ke..nak dari bwh payung..howwwwwwww laaaaaaaa. Cokodok pisang plak I want my dad’s cokodok yg bulat² itu.
Sigh. I guess i’m really homesick.
Hubby now is doing all the cooking at home, serious kagum dgn dia. Aku ni during the 2mths of marriage, tetiap kali nak masak mesti ada resepi kat tepi. Dia? main campak je..tak refer to anything. Kagum gila. He always ask me what I want to eat so that he can try to cook, but the thing is..I only want SSF, SSF, SSF..huhu so even though dia masak udang ke sotong ke ayam ke daging ke..it’s still not fulfilling to me. Kesian kan..sometimes makan bape suap je pastu tak lalu dah..sian dia. Luckily he understands..tak kecik ati dgn bini dia.
Ok..it’s lunch time now…time to go out to hunt for food walaupun I have no idea wat to eat😦
p/s : masih lagi berjaya memekakkan telinga bila org sound minum air ais, makan mende yg sweet and salty
