Movie : Niyang Rapik


Semalam birthday Kak Siti tapi ada few vocal classes kat studio. Sampai studio , kissed & wished her. Cuti birthday Nabi too , tapi still kita kena kerja. Pagi lagi I dah keluar rumah , the kids was still sleeping when I left home. I hate watching horror movies but when I saw TMO Niyang Rapik on TV I was amazed by the cinematography of the movie. There was a wide shot on Tasik Kenyir where the casts was on a boat.....that shot alone made me wanna go and watch the movie.

The movie has beautiful shots and it's very impressive. I can't say if it was a good movie coz I was more interested in the shots than the story line......if you're a fan of foreign horror movies , than the story line is very predictable. Instead of being scared or having chills while watching Niyang Rapik , I found myself giggling & laughing in scenes which was supposed to be horrific! Seriously peeps.......

There was this scene where a cast nak tengah turun tangga.......nak pergi mandi......malam-malam.....kat luar rumah lagi *logically , any insane person will not want to do so laa....no way...dalam hutan lagi....memang sengaja pergi cari puaka malam-malam OK...* It was a tangga ayam shot , kaki actor tu enter frame , dia letak selipar atas tangga....pakai selipar & turun tangga....off frame. Time tu ada tangan hantu enter frame macam nak capai kaki actor tu laa....dengan kuku panjang & what nots....what made me laugh was when Kak Siti made a comment........"eh tangan hantu ni , main piano pulak!" Hahahha.....jari-jari panjang hantu tu punya movements memang macam tengah main piano pun....alamak! even Yna pun ketawa. Berani pulak si Yna tengok cerita seram ni.....dia pun dok ikut I dengan Kak Siti terkekek-kekek dalam panggung.

There was another scene yang potong steam sangat was when the character Amir nampak hantu and was walking towards a cliff as he was being possess.....He has 3 other friends looking at him walking towards the cliff in front of him.....these idiot friends of Amir , realizes the situation but just stood where ever they were standing,,,,,only calling "Amir! Amir!" "Amir! Amir!" but they didn't come and pull Amir away from the cliff when they have ample time to do so,. Amir ended dead!.....bodoh....kalau I jadi Amir , I mati jatuh gaung and knowing that my friends didn't do anything to help me , I'll definitely come and haunt these stupid so called friends of mine....duhhhh!


Apapun , I enjoyed the movie. We all did. It's cinematography & spooky shots was something fresh to watch. I thought Awal Ashaari's acting was good. His character managed to make him show us the different side of Awal. He can do more as an actor. Shaheizy Sam was lucky coz he pretty much got lots of funny punch lines from the script , in a way I feel that it's kinda obvious that producers is helping this guy to be among the top young actors in the industry *super fast*. To me , Shaheizy can act but he is acting in his acting.......just like his sister , good but not a natural actor. As for the lead actress in this movie , hmmmm......she can definitely act but there's something about her face which I can't take her seriously. Same goes to the Sepet actress.....Too small of a physic for such big roles. Hey! These are my personal opinions OK. Yours might be different.

Yna's waiting for the DVD to be out!

Makan Makan With My Sista's Today

Ni lah nasib bila tak de kakak sendiri.....every now and then pergi makan dengan kakak-kakak yang whom I'd say very dear to me........siapa lagi? Datin Nita , Siti Hajar Ismail & Aida Fitri Nasution.....tu lah 3 orang kakak yang I selalu habiskan masa untuk makan-makan........tapi diaorang tak bulat , I yang macam belon!


Eh...saja nak insert this Sup Kaki Ayam , hehhee! The day before I belasah makan Nasi Putih dengan sup ni.......best!


Me & my baby A.........lempang kang!


So , back to my lunch date.......I met Sis Nita at Bora Ombak to discover that they've changed their set dulang menu. Lagi banyak sets to choose from but I prefer the old one. Menu ni macam tak syok laa........tapi maybe sebab hari tu I pun order in a hurry so tak dapat baca menu baru tu lama-lama......I ordered a Pecel Lele Set. Kalau dulu , dalam 1 set tu macam-macam ada.....but now hanya ikan keli goreng & ulam-ulam. Lohhhhh! Air selasih yang complimentary tu pun tak de. No good....no good....

My Sis Nita ordered set yang ada asam pedas daging & ikan bakar........but disebabkan that day ramai sangat-sangat orang lunch kat situ *tak pernah terjadi selama I dok lunch kat Bora Ombak*......service memang ke laut. Waiter & waitress dok gasak lepak kat luar......dekat 30 minute set Sis Nita tak sampai-sampai. Yang sampai was the side dish of Gado Gado that we ordered separately from the ala carte menu. Honestly tak syok makan kat Bora Ombak hari ni especially with the new menu. My set only has ikan keli & ulam. Sis Nita's set ada ikan keli bakar - asam pedas daging & ulam......harga sama......hmmmmm........kena gi lagi sekali to really sit down and indulge with the new menu. Kak Aidaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!! Jom!!!!!!!

Since tak air free lagi.......kena lah order drinks. Sis Nita had coconut juice & I had Iced Bandrek. Lepas makan rush pergi ambil Yna pulak dari sekolah then kena hantar dia mengaji. Busy kan...hehehe!


Petang ni MP balik awal pulak tapi dia nak tidur petang kejap. So I kena laa keluar pergi ambil Yna dari kelas mengaji. Lepas ambil Yna I went to Al-AzMaju to buy dinner and Kak Siti called saying that dia nak singgah rumah to discuss something. Eh! Esok 26th February , birthday Kak Siti tau. Since Kak Siti nak datang rumah , I pun tapau some Nasi Lemak Ciput , some Ayam Goreng Berempah , Teh O Ais Limau & some chocolate cake *kat Al-AzMaju* for dinner.



Sampai rumah terus siap-siapkan meja makan coz Kak Siti dah on the way........nanti Kak Siti sampai boleh makan sama-sama :-)



A note for me : As am writing this post - Me & Kak Aida dah buat plan nak bawak Kak Siti makan Satay Kambing kat Kampung Baru.....ni tengah tunggu Kak Aida come fetch me at home. Mesti ting tong kepala & panas badan malam ni satay kambing punya pasal........MP kat bawah , dia ada meeting. Yezzerrrrr!

Dumb Cooking : Simple Spaghetti


I don't have much ingredients left in the fridge......ni last kopek sebelum buat marketing. Lamanya tak buat major marketing! Malam ni perut lapar. MP pergi mengurut dengan Pak Hamid kat Gombak,,,,,,,I malas nak keluar beli food.........hmmmmm.......untuk I sorang je.......dah lah....I belasah masak apa yang ada je lah. Dalam fridge ada tomato - daun sup - chopped garlic & beef bacon strips. OK laa tuh!


Keluarkan beef strips dari freezer , terus I gunting-guntingkan benda alah tu. Tak kuasa nak tunggu dia cair dulu......lapor siol. In the wok , in goes some EVOO - chopped garlic & beef bacon.......heat on. Bila daging dah garing , in goes the tomatoes - some chili flakes - salt & pepper & daun sup.

when the tomatoes a bit mushy , in goes the spaghetti.....heat off & mixed well. Hmmmm....sediakan pinggan......


........and ready to makan......*to save time , cook the spaghetti while you're preparing the beef bacon strips & veggies*


A plate of spaghetti for me & instant beef lasagna for Yna.

Dumb Cooking : Mac & Cheese

As I've promised Yna that I'll make her some Mac & Cheese , well today's the day. It's pretty simple but time consuming jugak laa , as you have to keep on stirring the macaroni so that dia tak melekat kat periok.


Bought San Remo's Instant Mac & Cheese.....some water , butter & milk.

Nak masak benda alah ni , I kena ikut sukatan air & susu as stated kat belakang pack mac & cheese tu. Bukan apa.....takut tak jadi. Some water in the pot & milk.


In goes some butter......


Biar butter cair & the milk mixture mendidih.......


Then only masukkan 2 packs of Mac & Cheese.........stir.......stir.....stir......till mendidih......stir lagi.....


.....sampailah macaroni tu kembang & mixture jadi pekat......I tak letak extra garam or anything. Kalau ikut sukatan air & susu......rasa dah cukup masin.


Lunch for me & the kids.

Very Dumb Cooking

Let's do some dumb cooking shall we? Well this is kinda dumb but I don't care lah....janji I boleh makan dengan anak-anak.


Recently Yna wanted to eat spinach , dia tak kisah buat masak air or lemak,,,,,,,janji bayam. I pun pergi Giant BA tapi that day bayam tak de :-( I went on searching for baby spinach yang dah siap basuh untuk buat salad........pun elek. Last resort *sebab malas nak pergi tempat lain* , I went to the frozen section and got a pack of frozen spinach. Tapi nanti bila dah cair mesti spinach dia berderai & tak laa seketul-seketul macam ni........Buruk......but better something than nothing :-)


Let's start cooking coz in a while I nak kena pergi fetch Yna kat sekolah. In goes all frozen spinach cubes into the pot. Add slices of yellow onions & prawns.......


Add water , heat on and stir occasionally till spinach cubes tu hancur......then bila dah mendidih , add coconut milk & salt to taste.......wait another round for the soup to boil.


This took me under 15 minutes to cook....My Lemak Bayam Hancur......hehehe! In a bowl , taruk nasi sikit & the spinach soup for my baby A's lunch.


Making a super fast sambal sotong. In a hot wok (no oil) , just tossed in the squids....



Eventually natural juices from the squids will come out. At this point in goes some sweet cherry tomatoes.....when squid's cooked , I added instant sambal paste , sugar , a bit of salt & some onions......


Within few minutes........hehehe! siap.



Yna's lunch when she comes home :-) .....oh , I buat telur dadar sikit for Yna.


Just look at my baby Popeye! He loves the spinach soup......


Me on the other hand........thirsty as ever........some grapes in my big mug & added a bottle of chilled Blueberry Tea. Damn good!
