we got this complicated-multifunction looking rice cooker as our wedding gift and had been using it ever since. Being not much of a cook myself, i only use it utk masak nasik even though it can cook other stuff namely, sushi, steamed veggie, grains, porridge and the list goes on and on.
last Saturday we decided to invite some close friends for brunch. Menu of the day were nasik lemak, sambal ikan bilis, butter prawns, ayam goreng berempah and those standard telor, ikan bilis goreng, timon & kacang goreng...
being very ambitious...i decided to cook the rice in one go..10 pots for 8 people...surprisingly muat lak periok tuh.. Impressed with the rice cooker ability to fit in that large amount of rice i let it set and moved on to the rest of the food preparation ..litte that i know that i made a very big mistake.. big,,big,,,huge..huge mistake..
30 minutes passed, .nasi tak masak2..give it another 10 minutes *thinking to myself*..
yet still nasik tak masak-masak...
we decided to move on to plan B...masak nasik putih..hahhahaha..
even though at the end we did managed to cook the nasi lemak but i was rather disappointed that it didn't went as gracefully as i expected..
lesson learned ...never ever ignore the "MAX NOS. of cups" indication on your rice cooker..
P/s…rayyaN turned 4 months yesterdaY…

*click picture for bigger view*
i'm trying as much as possible to explore what abu dhabi have to offer while i'm here. so last weekend we went to the Heritage village. apparently it's listed as one of the "10 things to do in abu dhabi". kekononye you can go back in time to the old days of abu dhabi before oil was discovered and those skyscrapers were build. The place is nice, it's just that there's no explanation boards or what so ever. so you have to figure out things on your own or better still make your own story for it... *which we did*..rayyan was a darL as he slept beautifully in his pram most of the time.
