Mistaken for a cewek




Was with this friendly ibu from Sumatra when she WhatsApped her daughter and told her that she was with a cewek . 

I looked around . Surely she can't be referring to me  ?

Thought that maybe she was trying to butter me up , until she later proceeded to ask me which college I was attending .

Get outta here !! 
Oh my . She really means it .

Of course not everyone can be fooled but if you wanna fool some people like that Ibu , just to give your ego a boost lol , take 2 of these pills daily .

Copper thimble from Perlis



 Finally got myself a proper thimble for handstitched darning and repairs . 
Made in Perlis and crafted from copper , , it was an unexpected find in a curio shop . 
The underside is an odd museum green , the shade found on ancient brass pieces . Fits on my thumb and has a very good weight to it .




PUIIII from afar


First I squinted to get a better look at the number plates , then I giggled

Hawker style oyster and peanut porridge - one pot slow cooker recipe


Sometimes I get a craving for this breakfast offering sold by some hawkers in Kuala Lumpur at
Brickfields and Peel Road to be exact .
As I simply cannot find this dish in Penang , I have no choice but to cook it myself .

Durians bad enough to warrant a kill


Penangites are super proud of the local hill grown durians . But with the proliferation of conmen , crook sellers growing by the numbers each day , it was just a matter of time before someone got mad enough to actually go and attack one of these " nga nga chat chat " cheat sellers .
Happened in Machang Bubok on the mainland . Seller took a knife to the chest and died .
