:: just when enough is enough? ::


:: food glorious food, where's the sambal, man!::
a friend of mine (who is staying in KL) once said that she will never show me around should I decide to pay her a visit.

her reason was simple : she said that i am a 'high maintenance' guy...

and she got that idea just because i took her and her sister to good makan places around when they visited me few months back.

that was the first time that i ever heard anyone said about me.

am i really a high maintenance guy?

right now, luckily for me...all my meals are 'on the house' - which means that i can really indulge in any kind of food - french, dutch, american, indonesian, thai, chinese, etc at a city where only 60% are from the dutch origin. lucky me....bread and more bread make my farts stink big time!

however, after eating all these 'high maintenance stuff', i am getting sick and tired of going out to the restaurants anymore.... not because of the obligatory tips (sometimes, no need to tip as the waiter will act blur with the change)

the food is good, i have to admit it, although some of the asian restaurants are totally crap! but i am having strange craving for simple meals back home.... like maggie curry instant noodle for example, or mui fun from prinsep street and chicken rice from rex....

and the worst of all, is that i miss my mother's cooking...how i take the daily home-cooked meals for granted..and now, even these luxurious food could not make up for that short-coming.

i know its only going to be a month now, but i am really running out of ideas of what kind of food that i am going to expense -- on the house.. :).

like all they say, you can't have the best everytime...just once a while only lah! it's no wonder that power people like the president, SM Goh, sultan of johor occassionally "tah pow" food from local ordinary hawker....

see - i am not high maintenance after all....

Know that feeling. Even when on the house, everyday eat almost same thing also sianz. When

I was away on business trip, I also had the same feeling. Once in a while, ate Mcdonald's or pizza or tapow back for a change.

the best food is the kind that's prepared with lots of love, which may be why you miss eating simple, home cooked meals. we eat not just to satisfy hunger but for emotional reasons as well.

anyhoo, i'm a BIG fan of maggie's curry flavoured noodles too. me thinks i'm gonna cook myself some now. :]

it's so difficult to find a very good asian restaurant (Chinese or Indonesian) here, I oftenly feel disappointed whenever I go to the restaurant in this country because the foods aren't tasty at all :(
