one can tell how/who/what another is by the company one keeps. and this is the kind of preferred company i keep.

Intan’s a good friend of mine who was an accomplice in many a juvenile crime including inflating condoms with water and throwing them around the classroom to mortify our devout, pro-virginity English teacher who once preached that “the apple that is harder to reach is sweeter to the palate”.

he didn’t know that some of the apples in class had already been bitten into.

Intan now lives in the UK and we chat almost daily (oh, the joy that is MSN). and today, just for kicks, we decided to cook dishes from the same recipe website and exchange shots of them. we also embarked on a pictorial exchange of our kitchen cabinets after a discussion on how to steal supermarket trolleys.

this is what i do with she who asks me every morning “what have you achieved today?” to which i normally grunt and scheme of ways i could wow her like our ex-schoolmate who is now going to lead an expedition up Mt Everest.

i haven’t even cleared Mt Laundry.

[18:35:51] dali masak-masak* with Intan says: eh, accept the first picture

[18:36:19] intann says: you actually susun (arrange) them all

Alim maggi

[18:36:29] intann says: i’ll take a pic of our uncoordinated cupboard

[18:36:41] intann says: eh your maggi so alim (holy)

only Intan would call a pack of toxic instant noodles très alim.

no continent divide, timezone difference, or age, apparently, could put a halt to this masak-masak playdate.

i feel 16.

Stir Fried Vegetables with Oyster SauceThai Chicken Green Curry

about the oil slick floating on the thai chicken green curry, i console myself that i’d substituted part of the coconut milk with low fat milk and canola oil won’t kill me as quickly as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups might.

i love feeling 16.

*masak-masak: a Malay term used to describe (children) playing with tea sets.

    that reese’s peanut butter cup comment was a jab in the heart, dals.

  3. thegrouch Says:
