Cooking With Mariuca


Hello and welcome to Mariuca's kitchen! Today I will be featuring one of my favourite dishes - Rojak. I hope there are some Rojak fans out there and for my international readers, maybe after this lesson, you'll know a little bit more about one of Malaysia's famous dishes.

Rojak means a mixture of many different things. A local favourite among Malaysians, Rojak is typically a spicy salad of fruits and vegetables mixed with sticky sweet savoury sauce.
Rojak comes in many types - Malay Rojak, Fruit Rojak, Penang Rojak, Indian Rojak, Rojak with cuttlefish and so on. Whatever type of Rojak you choose, it is the sauce or paste that either makes or breaks this tasty delight. Rojak paste is made from prawn paste, mixed with some water, sugar and lime juice. For those who like it spicy, chilli paste is added to the paste when making Rojak. I prefer my Rojak sauce thick and gooey...and of course, the spicier, the better! :)

We recently discovered a stall at IKANO, which makes the best Fruit Rojak with Sotong (Cuttlefish) so I bought a pack to demonstrate right here in my kitchen, the simple way to make your own Rojak at home. ;)


Fresh pineapple, cucumber, sweet turnip, green mango, green guava cut into small pieces


Pour thick and tasty Rojak sauce over the cut fruits


Add in the chili paste. Remember, the spicier, the yummier! ;)



Okay next is my favourite part of the whole Rojak dish - the crunchy prawn crackers and tasty sotong! We usually ask for an extra pack of each. Go ahead and break those into the mixture as well. Lastly, add pounded roasted ground nuts and mix everything using a wooden spoon. Mix well until all the ingredients are covered with thick, sweet and spicy rojak sauce. Sprinkle some more nuts for garnishing and there you have it, a delicious plate of Fruit Rojak with Sotong. Suitable for a snack or a meal, Rojak is delicious any time of the day or night. Bon apetit! :)

Apple,  August 04, 2008 1:41 PM

Mariuca August 04, 2008 2:39 PM

LadyJava August 04, 2008 2:41 PM

Mariuca August 04, 2008 2:44 PM

Mariuca August 04, 2008 2:46 PM

Oh B and I are eagerly waiting the opening ceremony too! :):):)

Mariuca August 04, 2008 2:48 PM

Mariuca August 04, 2008 2:49 PM

He he!! Debbie, better get some rojak today then! Ask Colin to stop by IKANO and get some, or maybe there's a good stall in Bangsar? Last time, when I was working at NST, there was a famous stall at Jln. Telawi. :):):)

Mariuca August 04, 2008 2:50 PM

LOL Kim!! I'm not a great cook either but there are some dishes which I'm good at he he! Oh I hope ul try this out, maybe u can get the ingredients at an Asian grocery store!! :):):)

coolingstar9 August 04, 2008 4:19 PM

bonoriau August 04, 2008 6:23 PM

Emila Yusof August 04, 2008 7:17 PM

Faizal August 04, 2008 7:39 PM

menitik nitik air liur. :)

Imelda August 04, 2008 8:09 PM

Mariuca August 04, 2008 8:38 PM

Hi Coolingstar, nice to see u here today! Rojak is yummy yeah? Try them all if u can and let me know which rojak is ur fave he he! :)

Mariuca August 04, 2008 8:40 PM

Hi Debbie! Okay, my sense of direction is terrible but I'll try my best to remember lol... it's at the Jln. Telawi road, the one facing the Mc Ds at the corner! The only Mc Ds I believe. I dunno if the uncle is still there, good luck!

Wei, sotong is my fave also la!! But it's def not good for my sinus prob lolz! ;)

Mariuca August 04, 2008 8:49 PM

Bono! Guest blogger u kena buat apa? I don know how to write all this PR stuff he he! ;)

Mariuca August 04, 2008 8:51 PM

Wah TTDI kat KFC side is it Emila? Can be more specific or not he he..mcm nak cuba je LOL! Got sotong also? :)

Mariuca August 04, 2008 8:51 PM

Yay, so nice of u to drop by today Faizal! For that, enjoy as much rojak as u want here okay? And this one is memang yum! :):):)

KCee August 04, 2008 8:54 PM

Wow, this looks really yummy! I love spicy food as well and I think I'm going to enjoy this one. :)

Mariuca August 04, 2008 8:56 PM

GK!! Oh I love sotong he he..and this is the dry kind, very nice one! The stall is located on Uncle Lim's floor, P1 I think. And it's somewhere in front of BreadStory, I think there's another stall selling popiah there as well.

Hurry up and try la, and ask for extra chili if u dare! I use only one packet and spicy oredi! Oh extra crackers too, this particular one is so crunchy I tell you! Enjoy! :):):)

Mariuca August 04, 2008 8:57 PM

Hi Apple! You can easily make ur own rojak if u have the Rojak paste! Get creative and add in some other stuff if u like. I don't like papaya in my rojak though. ;)

Mariuca August 04, 2008 8:59 PM

Wah makan pecal nampaknye Rizal! I like that too, but once in a while je la.

Tak pernah try rojak dengan sotong? Oh then u must!! It is really YUMMY (and fattening he he!) and if u like it HOT, this one does the job, enjoy! :):):)

Mariuca August 04, 2008 9:02 PM

LJ! How abt iced coffee to go with this, cause this one is spicy woman! I pun mcm tak tahan je and u know I like it hot and spicy. ;)

Sigh...just now at the vet, Pheebs was suddenly quiet, tak bersuara pun! Balik rumah, start lagi...we also dewormed her today, dah lama tak makan ubat. Hopefully she will be okay, pity her so small and meowing away, must be uncomfortable right now! :(

Mariuca August 04, 2008 9:09 PM

Hi Imelda! Wow, welcome to Malaysia! For business or pleasure? :)

How about some yummy Nasi Lemak? You can also check out these other yummy food. I think you might just find them very tasty! :):):)

Mariuca August 04, 2008 9:37 PM

YAY! Another spicy food lover, what's food without a little spice yeah? Thanks for stopping by KCee! :)

leah August 04, 2008 10:46 PM

Wow looks so delicious. mouth watering.

LadyJava August 05, 2008 12:31 AM

Is she still meowing now? I think at the vet, she was probably scared that's why stop..how old is she?? Did the vet recommended sunat for her?

Yeah I know.. mesti kesian kan.. that's why I sunat semua mine.. tak sampai hati.. macam in pain kan??

LadyJava August 05, 2008 1:19 AM

Yummyy!!!!! Am here on LJL dearie.. baru nak mula coz baru bangun..lolzz!!

Monica August 05, 2008 3:48 AM

Hi Mariuca, I like rojak but not Indian rojak or rojak with cuttlefish.. hahaha..It's almost 4a.m and I'm salivating here! :-D

DiamondsSaphire August 05, 2008 4:50 AM

That looks soooo yummy. Can you come over to the USA and make this for me??

DiamondsSaphire August 05, 2008 4:50 AM

That looks soooo yummy. Can you come over to the USA and make this for me??

bonoriau August 05, 2008 7:38 AM

Happy Tuesday...hope today will be GOOD day to U & friends

bonoriau August 05, 2008 7:54 AM

Marzie I love to explore topic on work-at-home topic.

Mariuca August 05, 2008 9:42 AM

Hi Leah! Great to see u here today dear, thanks for having my EC at ur blog often he he! Enjoy the rojak okay? :):):)

Mariuca August 05, 2008 9:43 AM

LJ!!! I slept early yesterday!! Without completing my work astaga! Now have to rush out some copies.

Pheebs still meowing, ikut mood dia. Vet said to monitor her for a week and if symptoms still persist, then off she goes to bersunat he he! My baby girl is growing up! ;)

Mariuca August 05, 2008 9:45 AM

LOL! Monica, some more I posted this at 5am, imagine how hungry I was then he he!

Oh I like Indian rojak, but the sauce/gravy must be thick and spicy too, otherwise it won't be nice. Happy Tuesday dearie! :):):)

Mariuca August 05, 2008 9:46 AM

DS!!! It's been AGES woman, I've mised you!!!! So happy to see u here today and if I ever visit US again, I'll happily come and cook u some rojak okay? In the meantime, pls help yourself to some rojak here, enjoy! :):):)

Mariuca August 05, 2008 9:49 AM

Sherry August 05, 2008 10:16 AM

yummy... my favourite rojak

Mariuca August 05, 2008 11:22 AM

Hi Sherry, thanks for stopping by to grab some rojak, enjoy! :)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 05, 2008 11:33 AM

yumm.. i love rojak buah!! usually me & mart will ask for extra prawn crackers too!! sometimes, we order only the prawn crackers. haha... it was yummy.. the rojak sauce with peanuts crunch on crispy prawn crackers!! yummy~licious! :)

i love cuttlefish in rojak too! but we seldom get that, so now i know IKANO have one. :) Thanks for sharing, woman! It surely gets me energized to fix up my mess!! >< Come and read about it at AGP!

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 05, 2008 11:35 AM

oh, marzie, i've just dropped off AGP here. nampak? hehe! i guess i hv to restart my dropping to get in yr top 10 list cause i've not been dropping for 3 days.. ><

Mariuca August 05, 2008 11:57 AM

Jean, thanks for dropping by today! So happy to see u back from ur mini vakasi. :)

Oh I tried that once too!!! We just ordered the crackers with the rojak sauce he he!! But after a while, muak la pulak lol!

Eh, there's also another stall at Uptown D'sara... Chinese uncle selling rojak (but no sotong), tahu bakar, sotong kangkung etc...that one is yummy too and the prawn crackers come in two types WOW!! :):):)

Sushi August 05, 2008 12:49 PM

Really interesting dish Marzie!
Lots of different flavors going on. I'm curious and Mama is too. She needs to go to a Malaysian restaurant in town and order the Rojak because I don't think she can find all the ingredients to make it at home. She'll order mild, because if she eats spicy food she'll have belly ache :(
Thanks for sharing this!Woof!

Bobby August 05, 2008 1:21 PM

Hi Marzie! I finally have a new post up and am rested. I've never eated anything like this, but I bet I would like it...especially if it's spicy. It looks wonderful and I am soooo hungry!!!

Tina August 05, 2008 5:56 PM

you cook girl? you have been hiding this hidden talent from us lol.

love the pics. all looks delish. you can come round mine and cook for me wink wink !

Canny Granny August 05, 2008 6:30 PM

Oh yum, yum, yummy. Now I want some of that delicious rojak in my tum, tum, tummie

phatelara August 05, 2008 8:19 PM

Hola dearie! Am here to vote for you! Guess what? Colin said, "The fella selling cendoi ah?" Selling cendol..hehe..nampaknya my hajat kesampaian la within this week. If not, I'll make my own rojak lah! Slurrpss! :)

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives August 05, 2008 8:30 PM

Wow, Mariuca, Rojak looks like a yummy dish...I may have to try it in my Roxiticus Desperate Kitchen!

Whew, time flies when we're at the beach, sorry I didn't get a chance to comment yesterday...though I did check out the tasty food and drop off my EC every day, but I must have missed once since I haven't been back in your top droppers in a long time.

My sister (aka Aunt Veg) has been visiting but leaves later today, maybe that will free up some blogosphere time for me...

Roxy

eastcoastlife August 05, 2008 8:31 PM

I love rojak too but have never had prawn crackers in rojak. hmmmm... I should try.

Just voted you in BOTB. Good luck.

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives August 05, 2008 9:05 PM

Vote, vote, vote...I got the last vote and you won! Congratulations, Genie Princess!

Roxy

Mariuca August 05, 2008 9:23 PM

Hi Sushi, I hope Mama will be able to taste rojak, is there a Malaysian restaurant nearby? Yeah, that's the best way, have it served to u all ready so u don't have to make it yourself. Having said that, this dish is really to make once u have all the ingredients! Happy eating! MEOW! :):):)

Mariuca August 05, 2008 9:24 PM

Yay I made Bobby hungry he he!! You're adventurous Bobby, am sure u will find this tasty, let me know if u ever come across rojak at your place ok? ;)

Mariuca August 05, 2008 9:26 PM

He he he Tina!!! I didn't actually "cook" this, more like bought it from the store and just chuck everything in a bowl and mix it all up till it's thick and gooey! Not much cooking involved LOL, but hey there are some things I can cook really well! ;)

Mariuca August 05, 2008 9:27 PM

Helloooooo Canny Granny! Welcome to Mariuca's blog and you're just in time too cause I'm serving rojak today, enjoy! :):):)

Mariuca August 05, 2008 9:29 PM

Debbie! He he dah takde la the Uncle kat Bangsar I guess! Make a trip to Ikano, DJ, Uptown or TTDI, maybe can try the rojak there. All nice but only the one kat Ikano got sotong, and that's ur fave mah! ;)

Yay, thanks for voting dear, I WON! :):):)

Mariuca August 05, 2008 9:34 PM

Hi Roxy!! Thanks dear, and yes it is really tasty! It's best if u can find the Rojak sauce instead of making ur own. You could try checking out an Asian grocery store for the ingredients. YUM!

I'm sharing some of ur fun at the beach through ur posts, and it seems the fun never ends! When are u going back to work? ;)

Oh thanks so much for the vote and I did WIN! I just checked Botb but didn't see any Roxy battles there. :):):)

Mariuca August 05, 2008 9:36 PM

Oh u too voted for me ECL, thanks so much sweetie!! And all my voters brought me luck tonight cause I won he he! :)

What? Sure or not never tried with crackers? Oh u must then cause that's the best part! Without it, the fruit rojak will just taste biasa. Enjoy some rojak for lunch tomo okay? ;)

Mariuca August 06, 2008 9:08 AM

Thanks Liza! I hope u will try rojak one day. You can make it less spicy if u like. Happy cooking and eating lol! ;)

LadyJava August 06, 2008 9:10 AM

Good morning GP!!! LJ still have not slept after waking up at 1am tadi pagi..just had yummy NL with sotong..yummsss.. and waiting anxiously for the latest ep of boldie..

Mariuca August 06, 2008 9:11 AM

Hi Webkinz, thanks for stopping by Mariuca's blog. Another one who loves the prawn crackers! Without it, the rojak would just be plain yeah? :):):)

Mariuca August 06, 2008 9:13 AM

LJ!!! Morning dearie, eh u blm tgk yesterday's episode ke???? I'm abt to answer ur Boldie comment at MPG ni!

Wah, nak sikit NL sotong. I had that for dinner yesterday actually he he!! ;)

LadyJava August 06, 2008 9:24 AM

4th episode dah tengok.. so let's discuss away...heheh..

Mariuca August 06, 2008 9:39 AM

He he, bangun-bangun tidur terus discuss Boldie! Awaiting ur response over at MPG dearie. :)

LadyJava August 06, 2008 9:44 AM

Dah jawab dah..lolzz!! siap with theory lagi..lol!!

Mariuca August 06, 2008 9:49 AM

Yay! It's important to have our own theories for Boldie he he! Hopping over to MPG now, I see u tried to scare me at my shoutbox there? LOL!!! :):):)

LadyJava August 06, 2008 9:50 AM

Boo!!.. scaring you too here..lolzz

Mariuca August 06, 2008 10:02 AM

YAY, that was my 100th comment here LJ, thanks dearie! Wait la, I'm going to "Scare" you also, when u least expect it he he! ;)

LadyJava August 06, 2008 10:09 AM

hehehhehe... wah.. i made it triple digit here.. lolzz!! the commenting queen!!

Mariuca August 06, 2008 10:25 AM

Don't forget Post Queen! ;) If I use SezWho, for sure I kasi u 5 stars he he!! :):):)

LadyJava August 06, 2008 10:41 AM

hehe.. ehh don't use them lah.. really hate that pop up thing..

Mariuca August 06, 2008 10:50 AM

Oh don worry LJ, I am not using SW for now. Mainly because I don need any additional program slowing down my blog. I am using the EC Toolbar however. :)

LadyJava August 06, 2008 10:55 AM

is the toolbar good? I can't install coz tak der FF3 lagi :(.. can can't install FF3 lagi coz some plugin that i use tak support FF3 lagi lah :(

Mariuca August 06, 2008 11:05 AM

It's all good except they don't have (or I can't seem to find it) a button for cards you've not dropped on (previous dates) in ur Inbox. Cause sometimes I need to drop on my previous day droppers, you see. The toolbar allows u to drop on those in ur Inbox (1 or 10 at a time) but it takes u to the blogs who drop on u today, rather than previous days. Other than that, it is kinda cool la! :):):)

Am using FF3 but still haven figured out what plugin Im missing for my NNang ads, still can't see them at my blog. ;)

LadyJava August 06, 2008 11:12 AM

I guess won't be using the toolbar any time soon lah... not sure also why you're not seeing your NN ads.. perhaps you got it block or something ?

Mariuca August 06, 2008 11:19 AM

Hmmm, don think so. Nothing is currently blocked the last time I checked. Takpe, I'll just wait and hopefully I can see my ads again soon, almost 2 months oredi waiting! ;)

Good day to U too ...Ya lah I'm also here...I always pray that today is better then yesterday.Every morning I will ask my self "What really really really I want today" ..then I answer to my self...

Farah Deen August 06, 2008 1:36 PM

what a coincidence! just last Sunday we had home made rojak. Actually, my mom and sis went to my aunty's place and they took like 2 full bags of mempelam muda there. Apparently, the tress was bearing way too much fruits and they are like falling on the road. so, of course, we took 2 bags full and next day, bought pineapple and sengkuang too. Just like you described, everything in without the crackers though! :) I love lots of pineapple and jambu air with my rojak!

LadyJava August 06, 2008 1:51 PM

Dropping and experimenting here too dearie...

Nessa August 06, 2008 3:02 PM

Aduh Marzie! See, you made me drool like crazy already!! Looks yummy :D

I especially love the sotong strips, used to buy those though they're quite pricey kan. I love my rojak with extra nuts, with less chili of course... hehe

Gbex and Ellen August 06, 2008 5:50 PM

Well, here's a happy comment for you before I take my girls to camp at the beach.

Roxy

Rozella August 06, 2008 8:02 PM

OMG! I paling love rojak buah! Tapi unfortunately none of the places here do it well, I miss the Bayu Timor one so much! It's absolutely the best!

eastcoastlife August 06, 2008 8:56 PM

The rojak in Singapore isn't served with crackers. I have to add them myself.

Congrats on your BOTB win!!

mjsterling August 06, 2008 9:07 PM

That looks so delicious... that makes me hungry now! hmm I may have to try this dish...

Tina August 06, 2008 9:49 PM

i see your pics of food are here staring at me again making me feel hungry lol

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 06, 2008 9:56 PM

haha, memang marzie. If always order just the prawn crackers, memang muak. lol!

oh uptown! aiyah, i seldom go that area lar. u know subang ppl only go subang or puchong..lol! but i will try it out if im around that area. :)

oh, marzie, im still no luck in BE lar. I did mention my problem to you rite. Still no response frm them, i think i'll give up at this moment. ><

Clarisse Teagen August 07, 2008 12:43 AM

tHERE'S this Rojak made by this Ipoh guy in a van.

That one is awesome.

LxndreaSB August 07, 2008 10:49 AM

alamak maurica. wrong info la. soon to be son means, my son will soon like fruit rojak as well.
we r trying to get pregnant. still trying though, and this is our second month trying. hope the best for us ok!

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:30 PM

LOL! I love all ur 3 comments here Roxy, you're so sweet!

I'm so happy I got to join RDH's 3rd birthday bash! 3 years is a great accomplishment for any blog and now that we have EC, BE and so many new programs, things can only get better for us bloggers! Thanks for all ur comments and drops here Foxy Roxy and BHB! :):):)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:32 PM

Hey Jan! So u too love rojak, everyone here seems to be loving it so far except for Nick he he! Oh crispy sotong come to me LOL! :):):)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:32 PM

Hi Debbie, thank YOU for helping me win! When are u going to join BOTB? ;)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:34 PM

Hi Bono! That's a good attitude towards life. You're very positive, and I like that! :):):)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:37 PM

Ha ha ha Farah! What an entertaining comment, I can picture u guys kutip mempelam muda and stuffing it full he he! Best kan to have ur own tree?

Farah, kat Penang ada byk rojak sauce yg sedap right? I made rojak once using the sauce somebody gave us from Penang and it was so yummy, cannot find it here though. Must go to Penang and stock up on rojak sauce he he! :):):)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:38 PM

Hi LJ! Thanks for experimenting here dearie! I got ur email on this too, will visit our fellow "scientists" as well he he! ;)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:41 PM

YAY! I had a feeling you love rojak Nessa! I actually had some after I wrote this post, blh? Yeah la, every day staring at the picture while answering comments, made me hungry..so happily had some 2 nights back! ;)

This sotong strips are not that pricey, murah je. Try la, don't forget..it's at Ikano! :):):)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:41 PM

Hi Gbex! Thanks for stopping by, I am on my way to visit you now! ;)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:43 PM

Rozella!! Another rojak fan! I have not tasted this Bayu Timor rojak but there is a Bayu Timor cafe here he he! ;)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:45 PM

ECL, leceh la like that if u have to put in ur own crackers yeah? Here, almost all the places serve it with crackers, which is good cause I wouldn't know where to buy the crackers.

Thanks dear, I won thanks to YOU and your vote! :):):)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:46 PM

Hey MJ, thanks for stopping by.

It is a must-try dish! Happy cooking and eating! :):):)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:47 PM

Hola Tina! So what did u end up cooking to curb the hunger? He he! Would love to see some of ur cooking at ur blog too. :):):)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:50 PM

Hi Jean!

Ha ha ha! But we just had to order just crackers at least once, to puaskan our hati you know? But now we know, crackers alone won't work! ;)

I think u told me abt BE, but u can reapply right? I also want to reapply for MPG, maybe we can do it together! AGP and MPG together-gether like that he he! :):):)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:51 PM

Hey Clarisse! Where is this rojak van? In Ipoh ka cause that's like out of my way he he! ;)

Mariuca August 07, 2008 2:53 PM

Ohhhhh he he he...I see! In that case, good luck to u Lxndreasb! I hope u will be blessed with a baby boy or girl soon. Keep on trying he he! ;)

LadyJava August 08, 2008 12:51 AM

Hiya GP!

You asleep??

ECL, mana ada fruit rojak in SG.. our rojak there very boring.. the ones here lagi syiok you know!!

NafaSg August 08, 2008 11:59 AM

Ooooh....yum yum!! The rojak looks so tempting. Thank u so much for wanting to treat us! HUGZZZZZ!! =)=)=)

Sushi August 08, 2008 12:31 PM

Hey Marzie, the restaurant that Mama found is called Penang but it's quite far. She looked at the menu and they have all kinds of food but Rojak :( She found Roti though... Maybe she has to go back to Malaysia and try the real one :)

Mariuca August 08, 2008 3:46 PM

Hi LJ, I've been sleeping late and waking up early to do work la. Stress again sekarang ni, got more stuff to do this weekend. :(

Eh ye ke takde rojak buah in Sing? Sure or not???

Mariuca August 08, 2008 3:47 PM

Yay, thanks for coming by NAFA! I hope u enjoyed the rojak, it's spicy but u guys just love that right? :):):)

Mariuca August 08, 2008 3:50 PM

MEOW Sushi!

Oh I'm surprised they don't have Penang Rojak, esp since the shop is called Penang! That's like a speciality in Penang. Anyway, Mama must be referring to roti canai! That's like a favourite breakfast item here, Mama should try it too. It's yummy but I'm kinda bored with it already he he! ;)

LadyJava August 08, 2008 4:44 PM

GP! When i left 8 years ago, rojak buah tak der lagi.. those times yg I balik kadang2 tu tak pernah mommy mentioned as well so tak tau lerr if now have ...hehhe.

Mariuca August 09, 2008 12:56 PM

Wah takde rojak buah 8 years ago, that is still interesting to know LJ! And wow, it's been 8 years since u left Sing to be with ur darling A, syabas LJ! :):):)

LadyJava August 09, 2008 12:58 PM

yeah GP!! 8 years.. very fast.. tak rasa pun tau... am loving my life now that's for sure!!.. now to get my mommy to be with me.. that's a challenge..hehe

Mariuca August 09, 2008 1:03 PM

Wahhhh seriously? U mean get ur mom to move here, but will she leave Sing and all her frens behind? That is a challenge indeed! Good luck dearie! :)

LadyJava August 09, 2008 1:06 PM

That's why it is a challenge.. she's been saying that she would join me soon.. but still not date.. the last time was when she said she reached 60 ..ini dah nak masuk 61! lolz..

Oh well.. as long as she's healthy I don't mind.. it's when she's sick or not well yg tak syiok when I hear you know..

Mariuca August 09, 2008 1:08 PM

Of course, totally understand. But nasib baik, Sing is not that far, even though it's a whole different country. And u seem to go back pretty often too, so that helps as well. I think she will eventually retire in M'sia kut, but her heart is still in Sing for now. :)

LadyJava August 09, 2008 1:12 PM

Yeah.. all her family is there... and she's so enjoying her independence.. which would be sort of taken away here..so I totally understand as well..

We'll see...

Mariuca August 09, 2008 1:15 PM

Of course of course, let's hope for the best. So long as she is happy then everything is still okay! :)

LadyJava August 09, 2008 1:19 PM

Oh well.. as long as she's happy!! Am dropping my EC now.. speed is great...ttyl!!

Mariuca August 09, 2008 2:15 PM

Ok dearie, ttyl! Am going out soon myself. :)

Constance August 11, 2008 10:59 AM

ooh.. you're killing me with those mouth watering Rojak! i love it and miss it since school days.. the sg ones just don't have the oomph! they also don't put green mangoes which is the best part!

Mariuca August 11, 2008 5:05 PM

Ha ha! Hello Constance! Oh ye ke Sing rojak doesn't put the green mangoes? That is def one of the best parts of rojak, I hope u get to find one really soon he he! Or else, hop over to M'sia for a quick bite! :):):)

SF August 12, 2008 5:55 AM

I've never heard of Rojak before reading this post. This is an example of why I love blogging, it takes you so many different places and cultures!

Mariuca August 12, 2008 11:29 AM

Yay! Then I am glad u caught this post SF, rojak is yummy and I hope u get to try it one day! :):):)

Emila Yusof August 12, 2008 10:36 PM

Marzie! I'm going to CP tower tomorrow! There's one uncle selling this rojak! Will eat it tomorrow...dari hari tu dah meleleh air liur haha!

Mariuca August 13, 2008 12:07 AM

How come u're going to CP tower tomorrow? Eh say hello to Comel and Amzud for me okay? And kat mana exactly at CP tower is this uncle? Can tell me or not? LOL! :):):)

Fida Abbott August 13, 2008 12:19 AM

Hmm, I wish I was there where you made it. I love rujak, especially rujak cingur, Surabaya favorite food.

Have great day!

Mariuca August 13, 2008 12:30 AM

Hi Fida!! Yay, I'm happy you like rojak too! I've not tried this Rujak cingur, but I bet it's nice. Have a great day dear! :):):)

Emila Yusof August 13, 2008 5:20 PM

Marzie, ala dekat LG floor, the foodcourt area, turun tangga terus nampak! Me jumpa Marwan (the one who commission me to illustrate his son and make door gifts. Tak jumpa Amzud and Jue pun.

Anyway, yang dekat KFC tu, there will be a white van waiting by the roadside opposite KFC every lunch hour. Dunno still have or not.

LJ!! Dekat ampang got but dekat Taman Putra!! Will let you know if I saw one near your place.

Mariuca August 14, 2008 10:21 AM

Wah u mean at the foodcourt itself? Semakin hebat nampaknya CP Tower lol!!

Oh the van sounds interesting, esp since it's nearby. Maybe I'll have it on Friday, kalau ada lagi la. Thanks for the tip woman! :):):)

mangosteenskin August 21, 2008 10:17 AM

hey this rojak is our favourite. me n hubby selalu makan berebut2!! tak pernah cuba makan dengan sotong kering. u make ur own sauce or beli yg ready made?

Faisal Admar August 22, 2008 1:28 AM

whoa! i am a fan of rojak too... but never try with dried sotong and prawn cracker... used to eat it with some boiled octopus :)

Mariuca August 23, 2008 12:47 PM

Hey Manggis!! Long time no see *HUGS*!

Oh ni semua I beli ready made la, takkan la nak buat sauce sendiri he he!! You must try dengan sotong kering, best tau! Pas tu extra cili pedas! YUM! :):):)

Mariuca August 23, 2008 12:48 PM

Faisal!! Never tried it with prawn crackers? Oh then you must, better go buy today ha ha! Happy eating and Happy Sat! :):):)

Emila Yusof September 27, 2008 4:10 PM

bulan puasa ni, meleleh air liur tengok rojak ni.

Mariuca October 06, 2008 12:59 AM

Emila, bulan tak puas pun drooling tgk rojak buah ni, sedap! :)

Emila Yusof October 17, 2008 11:27 PM

tulah, i feel like going to cp on monday just for the sake of the rojak!

Emila Yusof October 18, 2008 11:09 AM
