my missing other half

I'm a single parent this week as hubby is away on his business trip. So u can imagine the loneliness, boredom of not having your soulmate next to you at nite.. I even dont have the mood to buy juadah berbuka posa as it is only me & my maid who will be breaking fast . It's a different feeling when hubby is around as I would be eager to buy some of his favourite berbuka puasa food from the bazar ramadhan. It's not a must to have rice dishes for fast breaking for my family as hubby prefers eating other non-rice dishes such as roti boom, kebab, mee, mee hoon, pizza, fast food and whatever la..
( i'm back at my own house since last week as my MIL has to take care of my BIL's two children . Both he & my SIL are away in UK now. We will be staying back with my MIL for one week till raya , starting this coming Sunday )

Talked about bazar food, i wanna share with you all some delicious food and drinks that i've tasted throughout this fasting month. For those who likes to drink air mata kucing, the best stall will be at Bazar setiawangsa. The owner use gula merah/melaka and not the normal white sugar k . That's the reason too why the air mata kucing is darker than the other stalls. And this too was confirmed by my number one food critic i.e my hubby. Those who knows my hubby will definetely trust my hubby's critics when it comes to food. I guess that is what u will get or become when u grew up with a mom who is cikgu sains rumah tangga. ops,,,sorry for the long diversions or short iklan ni ok! Back to the air mata kucing story. Which stalls? Well, try to look at the stall that is on the lower bottom of the hilly road. If you r coming from the higher part of the road, the stall will be on your right as u r walking down .

Another delicious food is the kuih putu piring. There is only one stall selling this kuih. 3 pieces for RM1 . The ikan bakar there too is mmmmmm. try to look for this stall that will have people queing up in front of it. Other food is not so good.Even the nasi kerabu from 2 stalls are tak sedap lansung. The roti boom is way to expensive and big too. Maybe that is why they are selling it for RM0.80 cents per piece. Even the ayam percik are expensive i.e RM3.50 per pieces. U cant get it at RM 2 for the same size of ayam percik at Bazar Melawati . The one next to MRR2 .

At bazar Melawati, the best murtabak will be this husband&wife stall with one helper only. Their stall is located as the same lane as the buziest ikan bakar stall, just in front of the parking lot where u can get lori sewa services. Last Ramadan this stall sold roti boom which was the best one. They make the mutabak filling by batches and the main filling i.e meat looks like a rendang a bit. U can see it from the stall . The best sate stalls is the sate panglima as printed on their small signboard. We have tried others sate in the same bazar but this one is the best as the meat is marinated perfectly. Others seems like is marinated with kunyit only. My 2 year old daughter pun can tell which sate is tasty . Sate is her latest fav food . She will be asking for sate day & nite. But of course la we dont give in to her wants everyday. I normally buy sate every after 3 days. So I had to look for the best one as she wont eat it if it's not tasty. For those living in Bandar kinrara, try looking for this one sate stall at the bazar ramadan near I&P office . The peanut gravy & sate meat is just perfect & mmmmmm!

I guess it pays to really look at details when finding good food at bazar ramadan as some of the food sellers are just like 'mcm cendawan yang tumbuh selepas hujan". I hate it when the food that I bought did'nt worth the amount I paid. Like for malay kuih mueh, some are just pretty to look but lacking in taste. Thank God I can get my kuih mueh from felda cafe. yes, the same kuih that u guys will be eating at dewan perdana Felda if ure breaking fast there.

So what shall I have for buka posa today? I had keros kebab and some kuih mueh yesteday. I really have no mood to buy food when hubby is not around. Maybe a slice of tiramisu from Sun moulin bakery KLCC outlet perhaps..

I know how it feels without other half around...selalu kena tinggalkan. Oh, thanks for the review of bazaar ramadhan. You must be leaving somewhere in ampang/keramat side kan? Semalam I tried to search for setiawanga's bazaar ramadhan, tapi tak jumpalah. Where is it actually?
And melawati? I tried to avoid that area..the traffic is bad!

R u working in felda? Teringin nak bukak puasa at dewan perdana. I love the food there. Had our wedding there:)

N'way, Selamat Hari Raya to you and your family

rafiqa: my house is at BktUtama Bkt Antrbgsa. Susah I nak explain where is the bazar at setiawangsa.Take a left turning at the traffic light near Petronas Giant.Go up the hill.Will c a traffic light.then turn left. And down the road, u'll c the bazar..
felda food memang la best.Tapi standard dah kurang sebab byk chef dah lari..The menu buka posa at felda is more to malay food. Murah & sedap..heheh...yep! So many people i know had their big days there too!

frankensteina: i guess we women are like that. Selamat hari raya 2 u too dear
