How To Make Fried Sambal Belacan

Salam & hi to all,

want to know how i did my fried sambal belacan?

from the right (anti clock wise) cili melaka (they are smaller but 200% hotter than normal sized chillies), prawn  paste (here we called it belacan), tomatoes, red chillies, anchovies (i checked the ikan bilis translation is anchovies) and 1 large onion
put everything in a frying pan, put some oil and fry them in slow fire (3-5 minutes).
no need to take out the chillies stalks,
they help to reduce the burning hot sensation on your tongue. its a tips actually.
no salt and vinegar required  as the anchovies is naturally salty and those tomatoes are sourish.
then put everything in a mixer and blend them until smooth
then put in a frying pan, and fry until you can see the oil surfaces.
ready! you can serve just like that. you can dip your cracker in it too! yummy ;)
or you can serve for nasi lemak, simply delicious!

happy trying & good luck!

Accidents In The House

Salam & hi to all,

last month (24th or 26th June), i slipped in my bathroom at 3am. i remembered my whole body was in the air, and in split seconds, there i was, lying on the right side of my body. somebody spilled or played with shampoo in my bathroom! hmmm...its not hard to guess, i know who loves playing with the bubbles in the house haha... the bathroom was very very slippery. when i was on the floor, all i could think of was, did i sleep walking or was that a dream haha...

if i were to fall straight on my back, my lumbar spines could hit the floor hardly and could cause slipped disk! not just that, the back of my head might bang the floor hardly and i never wished to lose my memory due to that. Praise be to the Almighty, i was uninjured... it was a bit painful though..

and guess what? today, one of my daughter spilled water on the stairs, at 10.30pm, i slipped again! man! it was even more hurtful! my ankle and elbow were swollen! it happened so fast that all i can recall was, my body was in the position of lying on my right side, the same position when i slipped in the bathroom. this time, due to the steps of the stairs, my right elbow hit one of the steps. that was not fun at all :(

why am i telling you this unpleasant story about me slipping in the bathroom and at the stairs?

accidents do happen in the house, and the effect could be fatal. i thank Allah SWT for saving me, by giving my body the ability to do a fast reflex in adjusting my body during those falls. the continuous practice in aikido class especially doing the ukemi, really helps i guess . it has contributed to my 'no mind' body turning during those accidents.

it still hurts but the main point, i wasnt injured Alhamdulillah.

i just hate to be hospitalized.

Artificial Fear

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful

Salam & hi to all,

i am going to talk about this coming 9th July 2011. at first, i hesitated to even discuss about it but after today's 'chat' with a policeman, who parked next to my car, i think i need to speak my mind while it is still fresh. whats new? this policeman was trying to implant fear in me by saying ' this saturday, just stay at home. we might catch anyone suspicious eventhough he isnt wearing yellow'..

what a joke! 

this is what i called something artificial, and this artificial fear has its consequences. one of them is rebellious impact in form of reaction for instance. just look at me, i changed my profile photo in FB and colored the background to YELLOW. 

my advise to those 'fear planters'...yellow is just innocently a color. 'sleeping' thinker are awaken by threats and mind oppression like what you are giving us right now. 

beware of our awakening. once we were, there is no turning back.


is that too much to ask?
