Yummy Nasi Lemak!

I could not sleep a wink last night! A big part of it was due to the toothache I’m suffering from, which started two days back. I initially thought it would go away as it usually does for me, but this time it looks like the toothache is here to stay. After taking 2 Panadols to kill the pain, I found myself somewhat pain-free but very much wide awake with nothing to do. So I decided to be a good wife and make B a nice breakfast of Nasi Lemak (Coconut Rice) before he went off to work this morning.

Nasi lemak is a favourite amongst Malaysians and it just so happens to be my speciality; at least I'd like to think so! So at 5 am this morning while B was fast asleep, I was busy in the kitchen, peeling, chopping and dicing; preparing the ingredients to make my Nasi Lemak. When B got up, he was pleasantly surprised to find the table all set and his favourite dish awaiting him. It's not often that he gets a home-cooked breakfast from me, as I'm usually asleep when he gets ready for work so he was very happy indeed to fill his tummy with a nice yummy breakfast this morning. I have to say it was such a joy to see him filling up on my cooking. And the best part of the entire morning was that I got to enjoy a nice breakfast together with B after a long, long time!

Thanks love, for understanding my sleeping cycle. I'll try to cook up more yummy breakfast moments from now on ok? ;)

Enjoy my "fat rice" people! :)



GK, check out my SPICY sambal! :)


A nice hot plate of Nasi Lemak to kick start your day!

Oh Man Marzie, just how do you expect a guy to work when you post pictures of nasi lemak so early in the morning. Cruel, that's what you are ... LOL!

J@n!ce November 21, 2007 8:59 AM

Marzie, that's so sweet of you to make that at 5am. I like nasi lemak with the ikan bilis & peanuts to go along. Do you have that?

Your eggs were so nicely sliced.

Good job sweetie :)

Nick, I'm serving breakfast to my readers mah LOL!! Enjoy! :):):)

Mariuca November 21, 2007 9:27 AM

Hello Janice! I took my own sweet time to cook the sambal, so by the time B got up, everything was ready and properly cooked, not rushed! ;)

My sambal oredi got the ikan bilis inside, I usually make it together with the sambal, not separately and we don't mind doing without the peanuts actually. Oh and I used an egg slicer for the egg, that's why it looks nicely sliced! Enjoy my nasi lemak ok?! :):):)

Mariuca November 22, 2007 7:09 PM

Zubli! Terima kasih la sudi datang rasa nasi lemak I ni! You bila nak masak untuk I? ;)

Raghav November 23, 2007 2:45 AM

wonderful dish.... but is there no veggie food in your menu????

also u'r very lucky to have got such a wonderful hubby who never complaints u...

ppl have to sacrifice some thing or the other to be together & Mr.B is sacrificing his break fast for tht i hope..........

both of u do well.

regarding the tooth pain.... taking only panadol(paracetamol) won't be of use...

take nimusulide + paracetamol.

or aceclofinac + paracetamol.

if any filling or RCT to has to be done...get it done. don't neglect..... or it will start paining crazy...

also do hot water + salt gargling
to avoid an further pain.....
dentist consultation is a must.
don't delay.
regards.

Mariuca November 23, 2007 3:44 AM

Hi Raghav, the cucumber is the vege for nasi lemak he he he... besides my hubby doesn't like vege much, which I know is bad! ;)

Thanks for your concern on my toothache. I'm 95% better now! :):):)

Raghav November 23, 2007 11:53 AM

i hate eating N.V....
never be 95% better. try to be 99.99% better always & stay fit. i know wht the hell is this tooth pain as i have got severe pains in the recent past. thanx to my bro & dentist who helped me get rid of this.
more details abt him on my 500th post. which i hope have not read as there is not feed back.

also written a topic on tooth! search for it.

if there is any infection try to go for some antibiotic like droxyl/apdil 500(caefadroxil)

or oflaxin & ormadazol combination for a min of 3 days twice a day to supress infection.

but doctor's opinion is a must.

regards & Luv,
Raghav.....

(I Never Knew that you are married)
hahaha.......

Mariuca November 23, 2007 12:49 PM

Thanks again Raghav! I'll take ur advice and FYI my toothache is now 99.99% better! :):):)
