Checking the freezer upon my return from our family overseas trip, I found I still had a few packets of frozen sambal tumis from previous cooking, fish steaks, glass prawns and squid.

Warong Jawa Nasi Lemak @ Bedok South Market and Food Centre

Sungei Lembing Trip – Part 6

Did you noticed that I spelled Sungei with an “e” when it should be Sungai with an “a” ? I guess you can tell if a person’s from Singapore or Malaysia just by its spelling. It should be Sungai Lembing as I found out. In bahasa Melayu (Malay language), sungai means river and lembing means … Continue reading
