Dine Till You Whine

25 Aug

There ain’t such thing as wrong food.

(Sean Steward, Perfect Circle 2004)

But there are such thing as contaminated food! Was away in Kundasang a fortnight ago when the impossible happened. Exaggerating. Not. The boyfriend was having seafood fried mee and I pigged on American Breakfast at one of the famous hotels there.

Was (happily) pigging on his yummy-looking meal when I chewed on something hard as a stone! And no, it wasn’t a shrimp’s over-cooked outer layer or whatever names being conjured up. I chewed and chewed hoping it was, but it’s not! We agreed that it was an overcooked plastic.

Point is, are you gonna be that fussy customer shoving all sorts of nasty complaints? Or are you gonna be that forgiving customer and brushing aside the fact that you had just consumed a contaminated meal and almost choked on an overcooked plastic??

Okay, if you were to ask me, I’d for sure gonna kick the hell out of whoever-cooked-that-nasty-meal! No lah, I ended up complaining to the boyfriend instead. And he confronted me with the fact that there was nothing much we could do, after all. Not really…

There are a few reasonable and clear-headed ways in confronting the restauranteurs or the people responsible, according to him.

Numero uno, complain in a good way and request for a new set of meal, if possible. Sure you don’t want to pissed that cook off or else, you can imagine the worst like spits and leftovers.

Or, you can (half-heartedly) devour your meal if it isn’t really that contaminated, minus that alien thing in it. Then complain, and chances are, you eat that meal FOC.

And hell yeah, we complaint and get that meal FOC. Still doesn’t change the fact that it’s already contaminated.

My weekend in KK was superb again with of course, the boyfriend! We tried the Hang Li Po restaurant at the new Karamunsing Capital.

Nuff said, we indulged in Garoupa Goreng Kering Asam Pedas. I tell you, AWESOMENESS! Plus Adrian’s much-loved Butter Prawns!

Couldn’t write more, have to be back to Telupid!


ILY Mamee Sllrrrp.

21 Aug

Hey readers, I posted my affair with Mamee Sllrrrp Kari Xtra Pedas a month or so ago. No, I’m far from exaggerating. The Kari Xtra Pedas flavour is simply awesome!

After attempting to be a hard-core curry lover, I thought I wasn’t born to be one at all *Sigh*. And so I wanna be TLC to my taste bud. Buying the milder version of that curry flavour helps a lot!

Simply put, I wanna be the chef in style and cook Mamee Sllrrrp I know best — Kon Lau Mee style! Tried that with other flavours and brands. It worked!

Pouts My Way to Extra Hotness!

26 Jul

In case you’re wondering, no, this is not what you think it is. Or if we’re in the same wavelength, then congrats!

My extra hotness is all about  my affair with Mamee Sllrrrp Perencah Kari Xtra Pedas, so to speak. Fell in love (at the first sight) with the instant noodle — I bet, if you’re enticed with the picture, the odds are, you will soon get your hands on a few packets of that money-saving instant noodles!

Truth is, I’ve got an array of Mamee Sllrrrp to choose from, yet this one particular flavour caught me off guard. Wanting to buy only a pack of 5, I ended up buying 2 packs instead. Well, you and me can blame it to the seductive packaging — hence, HOTNESS!

Buying done, now the cooking part. My recipe advice for Mamee Sllrrrp Perencah Kari Xtra Pedas is keeping extra garnishing simple and light. Having said that, this instant noodle works with extra slices of tomatoes and daun sup. That’s all. No need sausages, eggs, prawns, etc. The instant noodle is superb for hard-core curry lovers. For me, I like it with extra tomatoes to tone down on the extra pedas flavour.

My verdict for Mamee Sllrrrp Perencah Kari Xtra Pedas — 7/10, with mild burnt throat! But, aahhh you can’t imagine its extra spicy curry creeping and seeping through your taste buds, and making its way down your throat. Haha!
