I am watching The Gem of Life Episode 72 and eating a packed lunch. You leh?

This is a brainless, unintelligible post made on a Saturday afternoon. I cannot believe that I was actually excited last night with the prospect of making a takeaway lunch for myself.

I am attending the course on Citizen Journalism today and Sunday. From 9.30 am to 5.30 pm today and 10-6 pm tomorrow. The idea of walking out to the nearby market to have lunch is not so conducive. Driving home is possible but the thought of going into a burning, hot car is not. So, I thought of packing my own lunch so that I can sit down in the comfort of my classroom in Aliran office and enjoy The Gem of Life Episode 72 while blogging.

lunch

So, while the rest of the world are enjoying their Chinese New Year yee sang lunch or some fortune rhyming dishes at restaurants, I am munching on wholemeal bread, ham and cheese sandwiches. Lucky I get to make myself a mug of hot Ipoh White Coffee to comfort myself that my life is not so pathetic after all.

I baked some oats and blueberries muffin last night and shall have that as dessert. *sniff*

Like Melvin told me on Facebook, “You sendiri dig hole one” (to bury self) so I cannot complain ‘cos I asked for this.

Still…*sniff* Finish class jor, somemore have to run to church ‘cos if I don’t go this evening, tomorrow 6 am must wake up for the early morning service.

So, what did you eat on a sunny Saturday? *goes off to a corner to whine about my own miserable lunch*

  1. Not too bad what!

    I went for a prosperity burger and had a spat with a patrol car on the way home. Had to teach him some road manners.

  2. Elaborate please, how does one teach road manners?

  3. Aiya…I should have taken a picture of my lunch today too! With the laptop in the background like yours, all I had was rice with leftover homecooked curry chicken and potatoes! Can I *sniff* like you too?

    I have been wanting to ask u this for some time. You know at Shang Wu Primary School there is an Indian man occasionally selling those curry puffs for RM1.20 a piece. They provide those extra pieces of onions. Do you have any idea of how they prepare those onions?

  5. Remember many years ago at the City Stadium we used to buy this great curry pup with onions from a saronged mamak. Now we are reduced to eating curry pups from IKEA. The curry pups sold at the KL Hospital canteen is highly recommended.

  6. what is the link to watch ?The Gem of Life??

  7. Ai ya, so kasihan Lillian…Never mind, I am sure you’ll have a yummy dinner. I also only had leftover Thai green curry with rice from dinner last night. Too hot and humid in Sydney to cook. Enjoy the rest of CNY! More loh sang to come for you?

  8. I ate plain rice porridge with fermented beancurd (tau joo lah!).

    Simple and taste very good!

    Bengbeng,
    There is a man going around ,near where I stay, selling the RM1.20 currypop too, with the pickle onions. He told me his sister made them. I think that for the pickled onions you just cut the raw onion into half rings (not too thick) and soak with vinegar with some sugar.Leave for a while, maybe overnight , and they’ll taste great. Remember to use the red onions, not the yellow ones.The red ones are more pungent and the result is a reddish color.

  9. Hey Momo!,

    Thanks for the pickled onion tip. It seems like something I can do 🙂 Thanks.
