Jour de l'Action de grâce and Eid al-Adha Bugist Style

Jour de l'Action de grâce
falls on 26Nov in US.... can't stop smiling each time i remember it... sigh.... my dad.... what a dad...
Great one.....
but if say to much people will misunderstood me.....

Eid al-Adha
before i start elaborating the cooking event more then the event is self ...
i still wonder why some bugist people here in Malaysia caught up with burasa' and asam pedas...
while ayam lengkuas, ayam serai and most importantly lepat luih is left out during the festive...
but anyhow i just wanna show you some of the preparing process with vids included hopefully.

Burasa' consist of rice, salt and coconut milk...... cook with Pandan Leaves fragrant
(Click picture to enlarge)
Which is wrap with a special banana leaves mainly pisang nipah or kapuk (play video below to
see how you shape it)
.........(owh i regret to tell you the one you buy in pasar malam is just not the burasa' you guys think
it is... trust me... especially the one in BBu or pontian.... differ... even the color) ...
and after that if you view picture mark with number six that is process Bugist peeps call it bebat...
a process of protecting the initial burasa' with a multilayer oversize banana leaves and seal tightly.
after the bebat proccess
the burasa' will be cook again for 3 hour.......

to differ which is burasa' and which lepat luih.....takes only a true blood to unlock it
(p.s my mum happen to strongly influence my dad family into this :P we not the same race/ethnic)


another Bugist delicacies (not to say unknown but more like infamous... )
which consist of sticky rice, salt and coconut milk undergone a similar process to burasa'
but normally we use a type or triangle prism moulding/molding which you can view from the
video below


The End product (Burasa and lepat luih)
So how to eat them

For Burasa' : Normally asam pedas- ikan Belanak or parang, but i prefer with ayam masak serai
or ayam lengkuas
For lepat: Bejabu' - well know as Serunding in Malaysian language..... or rendang

and this is my beautiful plate of the delicacies
and
A kuali/wok of Ayam masak serai (Lemon Grass chicken - Consist of onion, chilly, lemon grass, galangal, unyik/tumeric, serve with tumaric leaves and lime leaves as garnish-and extra flavor)
and the serving table- we should do alfresco today.....the kitchen was pack luckily we spread the carpet for food prep yesterday
owh lupa pulak Happy Eid al-Adha Peeps... and yes happy thanksgiving too

end of horror..... TIREDDD

Bahasa Bugis

Hurm i plan to start a blog on "Bugist language".. but some how there is some blog existed one of it is cgabeng bahasa bugis but i was lucky that he actually copy paste from others... but i find the language do mix with local culture... as for Johorian Bugis.... it is blend with a few local word... and some of my friend in sabah speaks with a mixture of Filipinos .... but not to far from makassar and sulawesi.... I do hope I can compile everything soon yup but of coz just the language and food maybe.......

Merde!



Sigh ... hurm made a mistake today.... firstly am not in a very good mood.... fierce to be exact... i know EMO but hell yeah i am fierce if people keep pushing me to admit something that i didn't do for Gawd sake.

and mum never made it easier... than i piss someone else (which reminding things from the pass)

and then yup back to me.... how silly we think we cant forget the most important things. The think that we plan with hopes and dreams... by the time we achieve it we have to let go and forget about it.... am still piss about it... i mean me... what a mistake... biggest mistake in my life..... and worst.... it is what am not suppose to do..... i remember that day... darkest day in my life.... ending with nightmare horror and a fight which i didn't trigger... man... why life is such a drama...

Body Odor: Fights back naturally

BO omg can't stands it... okay i know you (who ever you are) strong religious believer but hello BO just doesn't goes with our religion come on... remember we must keep our self clean.... nope it is not what you think yes alcohol is a sin but that is when we consume excessively which later cause nausea and hangover+ anything that going to leave major effect to your body is sinful. but alcohol contain in deodorant and antiperspirant is so little beside no major effect in your body.... and fatwa in Malaysia categorize this product as mubah/harus so why not just use it.....

okay so you still forbid alcohol in you life why don't you use natural way to deodorize ur self... follow this step:

Bath: bathe with lemon and bicarbonate soda or vinegar or try apple cider vinegar + mix in essential oil or rose water. recommended 3 times a day.

after bath: mix bicarbonate soda with body talcum and smear it to your armpit or apple cider vinegar. or some corn starch to make it extra dry.....

clothing:
always dry your body well and wear fresh clothing each time... wipe with fresh set of towel... wash your towel like 2-3days once....

Drink: fresh water, no coke, no Pepsi, no teh-O no anything else but H2O

Food:
Avoid: strong flavored food like curry, onion, egg, cocoa
try: high in zinc food... clam, oyster, dark leaf green vegetable like spinach

that's just it ..... bukan susah sangat pon nak senangkan org sekeliling kan

p.s
for those who okay with alcohol try bathing and use deodorant before you sleep... it make all the different for people who didn't do this everyday... try to use spray type of deodorant if you love walking and sport.... as you may spray until it cover the whole body....

Very busy .....

sigh what a weekend: Kon labor & Delivery, caramel apple, a very sweet breakfast, a repetitive dinner menu(Chilly crab and lamb chop) and my pack breakfast almost went wrong + Ferrero Rondnoir

Disclaimer: You are about to watch a miracle+disgusting(For some people) Vids But its okay wash it with my food post aha.. sorry people.... but really wanna share....




Saturday subuh i was annoyed by my cat she scratching my face my hand and my back...... at first i was piss.... it was 5.30 in the morning... okaylah bangun since Azan subuh calling me....
wash my face and brush my teeth and there she goes again ... she called me and walk half way..... since i didn't follow her she repeat the same step until i finish brushing my teeth and get my Wudu' done.... ok i follow you ... she is now inside the box.... i keep deceiving her because i was up to something... alamak boleh kentut pulak... went to the loo again just to see Kon repeating her steps before..... and there was something on her bottom and it was ..... small kitten leg.... OMG OMG OMG i scream IBU.......... my mum deceive me pulak since i complain to her in the kitchen kon was bugging me since 3AM man so basically she just doesn't want to witness it.....
i grab my phone and try to capture mia first experience to assist my cat delivering her baby.... man it was scary and i cried.... 1. she panic 2.i panic 3. my carpet 4. few more to go...... thank God i read the guide the night before... since this is her first experience she was as clueless as i am..... i follow the step what to do first and what to do if she didn't eat the placenta and cord....

after the painful to watch session..... i continue with what i suppose to do... and amazing 1 hour the kitten is completely dry and the best Alive.. all of them..... this is her first one hour milking pix

after the kitten sleep she rest on top of my bed

yup there..... the spot that i hardly approve (luckily we wash her after the process....) congrats Kon am so proud of you......Now to wash our sickness... but i bet you still sick of the vids haha
anyway... since now its me and my collegue cafeworld fever..... i am so wanted to try all the recipe inside the game...... almost all blog and web publish a pretty same recipe which require kraft caramel cube well as you know not ever going to be available in my kampung so i google how to produce the cube pulak... adeh what a pain in the A

before that you need to chill the apple and pat dry only before coating the apple...
what you need is heavy cream in my case i use whipped cream instead (i almost cry to find this on the shelf.... sangat tak sangka.. next recipe i need Greek yogurt and not sure where to find it)
so combine 1 pack of cream with the same amount of honey... i whisk it first and taste it in advance......
heat it on stove until i think appropriate .. ya i know am not a professional candy maker..... if you do have candy thermometer please heat it until 250F and you are now ready to coat the apple.. tilt the heavy bottom sauce pan and start coating....



jeng jeng jeng 2 normal caramel apple 2 espresso caramel coating .... improvise biasa la... oklah not perfect but edible (not sure not up to my taste but my collegue seem to like it beside.... they say it taste like cadbury choclair)... so that is my Sunday morning
owh almost forget i prepare my breakfast before start the caramel apple process with a
Sweet savorie Mr lova lova freshtoast ala doughnut :P (see wether you guys perasan the product)


prepare the toast batter.... 1 egg 1 part of milk and 2 teaspoon of vanilla essence.... fry it and try to remove it sogginess with kitchen towel dont pat dry but flip it on a clean kitchen towel....

after the disogginess(woah suka suka buat new word) the bread coat it with same part of Castor and icing sugar....... best serve with melted dark choco or home made without cooking strawberry jem (blend je strawberry with a little bit sugar) fresh and sexy.......
p.s recall it now..... something like powdered french toast in cafe world kan hahahha

i prepared egg sandwich filling sekali no bread ahhhhhhhhhhhh.... what to do... cant keep it ... can't waste it but i was lucky ada sebiji telur lagi..... crack it... + salt +water+ flour.... make a crêpes out of it and bungkus all with the salad leaves.... and wallah surprise it was edible and ok lah me and my colleague didn't went out for breakfast that day...
