Say SAJI


Get yourself a copy of Saji , A Malaysian food Magazine and you will find someone who looks familiar and that is Me, you will also find my recipes there, I contributed carrot thyme loaf and cumin bread for Saji's readers July edition.
I just had some fried noodles that my mum made and it was lovely,it is my rest day now so what else is there to do apart from eat , sleep and.. eat,sleep. Might be going to my friend's new outlet that sells Pizza but I think I have to postpone that to a later date as it is raining heavily outside.
This week, I had few invitations from ________ association of Malaysia but to be honest I cannot be bothered to go as I know what to expect ,I don't mean to put the essence of negativity but hell,can't be bothered... really.
On the other hand...

I can't wait - to see Mariana again hopefully I can meet her next week ,To see Darsin when he comes home for holiday and Matt whom I met in Bahrain to come here with his wife.Sweet ... can't wait for July!
Now off to my comfy bed again... yawn

While sipping my chocolate milk...
























Azura IS the weekend( a working weekend that is)

Here comes the weekend again!I am staying in tonight as I got to finish my menu and be prepared for tomorrow's demonstration.Life is good at the moment as you can read apart from few hiccups and few stumbling upon stupid people but comparing to my life 2 years ago this this bunch of stupid people are nothing! , yesterday afternoon staying at home all day I had decided to read my old posts and I think I am a much positive person today , I wake up to something great almost everyday and I am free to make my own decision.I am Azura, I can be weak but I also can be strong! Anyway no more mushy doody sad song ,I am looking forward to a brand new week in hazy Kuala Lumpur , oh my god why everytime they want to replant something , they have to burn the whole plantation ? this is really annoying .Now I feel like hugging some trees again.
Whatever the week will bring , I know it won't be boring especially with parties and my friends around they are always up to something and up for loads of giggles, I just need to think to which restaurant are we going to this time , my favourite Indonesian - gulai tunjang place ain't that bad really followed by drinks at our favourite place.
Till we meet again....my honeys who will be leaving me :(
For special someone ,3 weeks is such a long time and I will definitely miss you,have a great time in America , I can't wait to see them pictures of Elvis in Vegas and party places in Miami.

For Malar my beloved neighbour,we will miss you , I hope that we will still go for our vegetarian dinner together even after you move to your new place .

Welcome to a brand new week...bring it on!

I am Krob...Tab Tim Krob - Bangkok Episode 2


My last dinner in Bangkok at the airport

























































































Will you wait for me Siam Paragon? , you are just a brilliant shopping mall and I will BE BACK!














I had a busy tiring week and this weekend with a bad throat, I am trying to relax and get some rest.I had a great time on Friday with my students from Saudi ,apart from baking, kneading and piping, we talked about ideas and women issues.I am glad that I am booked for this group again next week and to be honest this (baking class) is one of the classes that I really enjoy.
At this moment I have so many things in my head , sometimes I wish that my head don't work too much asking complex questions... but being me , I just can't help it.

I miss those days when I was in Dubai recently , I miss walking down busy streets in Bangkok too.with so much places and an individual that I miss so , so much I am trapped again with questions that only fate and time has the answers .but because my heart does not lie, this feeling is all I ever need to keep me motivated.
So next week ,again! my agenda is full , and I do get tired from time to time, but I know with regular sips of my arabica coffee and you in heart to accompany me throughout the days I know everything will be great in the future and we will see each other soon.

Should I say book me early before I got out of order/stock ?

Boom bang Bangkok episode 1











She looks very familiar





Yay!




Khao San






Cheese!





Floots! as I was told by the Thai salesgirl










While I had my balls , as in fishballs...I enjoy this view of ladies doing aerobics in the middle of the city, cool !





















I like this driver, he talks...a lot and he let us watch some pat pong on his mini tele




What was supposed to be a work visit turned out to be a successful work visit!Now I know why the guys likes to go to Bangkok , obviously not shopping like me , but by now it is all well understood ha, ha!

What I can say about the food industry in Bangkok through my personal observation is that they are far beyond my own industry in Malaysia, again this is my personal view .From packaging , taste and variety I gave them 10 out of 10.

The last time I was there ,I remember I still had my "reebok pump" on circa 1990.Nowadays the cosmo is better than it was infrastructure-wise but somethings never change -tomyam , green mangoes and prawn fried rice!
I 'm glad with my entourage packed with Starred chef and businessman a.k.a my beloved bestfriends, our eyes were wide opened , impress with how advanced the food industry in Thailand are right now.


I also grab some ...ok,ok you got me !not some but many clothes and cosmetics at Boots that carries my favourite brand "Soap &Glory".I will definitely make another visit , but not so soon
:(
I love you Bangkok, just like all the things that is in my life currently -you're simply amazing!
