Salam Chef Azura

This is the prove that anyone can be what they want to be , this is the first edition of my column in SAJI Malaysia's renown food magazine .This is only a step toward my dream of food writing.'Azura the food columnist!' how chic is that?!!

I will be cooking exclusively in front of Robinson's card members at Robinson's Gardens at Midvalley on Thursday 30 July and the finale cooking concert on the 1st of August

Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue, and the dream that you dare to dream really do come true...

I have always love clowns.

Fun , Messy Sunday
My beloved best friend Darsin , Matt and Me at the popular Sunday brunch at The Westin beef cheeks,risotto and all the pastas are my favorite. How I had missed them all since I met them in Bahrain last April , I am glad they came to visit...
I know I will cry the day they leave and hoping to see them again real soon.

What will you get when you invite your friend a foodie who is doing his Phd to come and snap your pictures in the kitchen?
Thanks Faizal , pictures turned out really well and you are a really talented one.

I am gonna miss Ursula ,She is Matt's wife these two they are like the coolest couple!I adore her for being this beautiful person inside and out and funny.

After brunch , I went home and get some sleep and Kentucky Fred Chicken, but after 3 hours we went out again to have a lovely seafood dinner!I don't even put my makeup on.

Have you been to Angkor Wat?
And Me and Nik another Chef friend of mine, who came over from Siam Reap went for a drink after a lush Indian dinner at Aryan , I love their fish biryani after 3 years of eating there , I still love their food and Arul my favorite service guy.

Nik had a headache after talking for 2 hours with me, Reny just pretend to listen to me with a smile...

last but not least ... get a copy of SAJI, my column is called Salam Chef Azura and it is on page 58 and 59.
Drop by at Robinson's either on the 30th at 6
or on the 1st which is on Satuday and the same time too.
Good things comes to those who waits and work hard.
I am glad I did both.

Bliss is when you are in love
Bliss is when you know you're loved
Blessed is when you have friends by you

I heart them
and I know despite them hating me occasionally
they heart me too!

I am embracing this moment , this is my moment

Blissful is how I feel when I am with you

On last Sunday , Nazreen who went to school with me for a bit before I left when i was 13 came over to the class for the second time, we made Indian cuisine this time.She and her mum and her husband plus me had a great time cooking Palak Paneer with the paneer of course! Butter chicken , pilaf rice and sugee halwa and Auntie ended up buying pots and pans!
Thank You so much Nazreen for coming and for the 'talk' and the madness!

Masala madness and her world

what is palak paneer without making your own Paneer!(Indian cottage cheese)

Maureen who came earlier chose masala madness and the girls who had redeemed for her world's coupon had learnt easy peasy tapas /snacks.I had a great time and I would like to say thank you to all of them for coming , Maureen for girly talk and advice that I will keep for my entire life and Joan , Kelly , Kelly (2 Kellys!),Hana and Jenny for sharing your time with me , it was a pleasure having you ladies around.At this moment 'Derailed" the movie is on, not that much of a "Jennifer Aniston" kinda person and I am in my living room overlooking the towers through my balcony while typing this.
I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to some friends-I know I said I would go to so many parties held this weekend but sometimes duty comes first and i can't stay up late therefore I have decided to come back early after dinner, especially when tomorrow I have special guests for my cooking class ,I am having a great time!I have always love cooking and sharing is the best gift that I can give.Love it , love it ,love it!!

Before we kiss goodnight,
I would also like to say happy birthday to my old friend Ana Dewi in Bali Indonesia who used to be with me in the Four Seasons family, Although we are far away and not under the same roof , I want her to know that I think she is such a sweet person and I am praying for her health and happiness .Ana, don't party too hard tonight... yeh right!

Loads of love from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
