How-To-Make: Sambalised Durian

Salam :) 

In other words, how to make Sambal Tempoyak :D

I've always loved spicy food, literally since kecik-kecik dulu. And lately I can't quite figure out why my tongue has problems when it comes to eating pedas dishes. I just can't taste them. 

There are no tastebuds for pedas, are there? Hmm.

Anyway, the steps are veghy ze veghy eezy, yeuw vill have non pghoblemz. Unless, you're an ultra-kitchen noob, that is. But that's okay. If you love Malaysian food as much as I do, you'll be able to do these next easy-peasy steps!

Bawang putih, garlic
Bawang merah, red onions
Ikan bilis, anchovies
Cili (sp. optional), chillies
Minyak masak, cooking oil

Now, shall vi starght? 

Step #1: 
  • Take out the first four ingredients in the list above from your storing aid.
Step #2:
  • Silalah kupas bawang-bawang anda sehingga togel (bukan bogel). Peel both garlic & red onions. Berapa banyak: I can't say. Because it depends on how much you plan to make! 
  • I just went with 3/4 of a red onion, and half selabu bawang putih.
Step #3:
  • Put on your cycling sunglasses and take a handkerchief.
  • Ikatkan sapu tangan ke hidung.
Step #4:
  • Masukkan cili (cili merah ke hijau ke, hidup ke, mati ke berapi ke, up to you), bawang putih, bawang merah serta ikan bilis ke dalam mangkuk yang diperbuat daripada batu. Chillies, garlic, red onions & anchovies inside the stone-bowl. I am proud of my english-malay translation abilities. Eh.
  • Tumbuk dengan lesung yang juga diperbuat daripada batu (optional: sehingga lunyai). Punch the ingredients together.
Step #5:
  • Leave your hasil tumbukan for a sec, and keluarkan se-kuali frying pan. Take out your frying pan please.
  • Drop in merely 3 spoons of cooking oil, panaskan. Heat ze oil.
Step #6:
  • Masukkan hasil tumbukan anda sebentar tadi ke dalam kuali yang berisi minyak serta telah dipanaskan!

  • "Disturb" the ingredients sehingga bau naik. (I'm sorry I don't know how to explain this step any further)
  • Kacau sampai kering (: 
Step #7:
 These are mom-made-Tempoyak, you know :P

  • Once ze smell is up, campakkan tempoyak ke dalam kuali. Like in ze peekcherz above -_-
  • Silalah gaul sehingga rata. 
Tips! Dalam proses menggaul, if the tempoyak and sambal bergumpal-gumpal, it means you've officially made it *smug face* 

Step #8:

  • Keluarkan your now-done SAMBAL TEMPOYAK! Congratulations, for making it this far. Huh. *claps*

So, that's basically it! Senang, kan? Apologies because I wasn't able to take more photos of the cooking process to make it easier for you peepowlz because it was just that spontaneous :/

Anyway, selamat berselera!

Best 3-day weekend & Tips!

Salam :) Salam sejahtera, salam Satu Malaysia, salam tahun baru, salam bahagia (you may add some more if you wish).

I had one of the best weekends the past 3 days(or so). End. Fin.

Saturday 31.12.11:
NO CLASS, hurrah!
     Although I "planned" the whole day through, everything was pretty much spontaneous. I met Hussein for the first time, whom turns out is my roomie's ex-classmate back in Primary.
Small world, small world.

He has pretty eyes. eh, kantoi. And he still owes me my Tutti Frutti which was pretty much the only reason supposedly that we hung out. Midvalley as well as The Gardens je loser sikit, for they don't have Tutti :(

Sunday 1.1.12:
     New Year,  a great day too! I'm blessed, therefore thankful :)

met my little Izleen, muachs muachs!

reunion with me other team-mates! I was their junior bah, good times good times (:

and then there're my junior, my angels (according to Farris). lewls.

So, here is Farris- Le mentor through my debating "years". 
He says he's engaged now and expected to marry le beloved in two years time?! uhuk uhuk!

We celebrated Hazim, whom is to fly to Germany in several hours *sobs*.
Wiz some Fudge & Cream ! ..or is it Cream & Fudge?

Noun: What's Up Cherry? *very le recommended

Noun: Apple Crumble *le highly recommended!

Although we ate the most of 'em, thanks & sayonara Hazim.
Don't worry, the team's memories with you have already been carved.

Monday 2.1.12:
    Ze Bghoga Heel iz ze sagzesfooli climbed. translation: Bukit Broga berjaya ditawan. phew.

Or bak kata Aisyah: Bukit Be-roga. Hmm.

          Tips: In the dark, there's not much you can see. Er, duhh! So, careful with your steps.
                  Jangan nak bijak sangat pakai selipar, aku lempar muka lu kang baru tahu?
                  Tahu nak panjat bukit, pakai lah kasut yang bersesuaian.
          Rational: Takut tergelincir, pecah gigi, patah gusi, bibir tersadung 
                         dan eetisi eetisi. ehem, etc.

Nevermind the dust flying about, huh.

0545: Arrived at first stage "landmark".

          Tips: Sembahyang lah dengan modest. Choose a sensible corner of the "stage".

          Rational: You'll witness one of God's most beautiful creation, sunrise.

          Tips: Time ni nak jakun/batak takpe :)  It really was that awe-striking!

Model/s: Let this remain unknown.

This was downhill. Apa lagi, mari menggelongsor ! ~(^_^)~

There were more than 3 "stages" of the whole climb. That, you'll have to go explore for yourself. Although, one thing I can tell you- the smell of your sweat bawah ketiak tu was worth it. eh?

Bit too literal, ey?  lewls. Model: Cukie

And the timeline continues. Suka hati korang lah nak berbatak di atas sana bersama camera tercinta untuk sekian berapa lama. Tiada halangan bagi mu. Namun, haruslah anda bertahan sebab dah siang-siang tu panas woi!

I know what you'd say, ain't my face just that panoramic? Eh.

Model: Alidi 
Model: Various as well as foreign.


Thanks guys, may Allah bless you for making my weekend a hell of an amazing  & memorable one.
