Hot Days

I know I have been slacking lately. 1 post a week? Yikes! But the weather has been so hot and at the same time I have another house that needs me as well. It is not easy to come up with a post especially when you are a busy fulltime wife with no kid (yet) but have 2 blogs. Cynical. Geddit?

Anyways, its Friday today and we are going to have another round of bbq session later today. Our 4th one eversince we moved to this new place a month ago. We are going to have a few friends over and the menus are going to be among others this,this and chicken rice. Are you drooling yet? Hehe. So far, the chicken have been marinated overnight. Grilling will only start when Michael comes home from work. The chicken rice is cooked. I still need to cut & prep all the ingredients for kerabu mangga and salsa. Well, cant have all Malaysian goodies can we? Kerabu mangga for us Malaysian and salsa for everybody.

On another note, it is 3 weeks away before Merdeka. What are you going to be doing on that day? Partying at the clubs? Seeing the fireworks at KLCC? Organising makan-makan (eating) at your house? Share with me ok?

With that, have a great weekend everybody.

We had some hot summer days here in VA too.. but still it isn't as bad as in Malaysia where you sweat buckets the moment you walk out of the door...

Malaysia = almost the same with Florida. It's really really hot here and it rain in the afternoon just like Malaysia.

Happy bbq'ing .... hahaha and have a great weekend.

Yes, I'm drooling. Honey BBQ Chicken Wings - I think that will be my children's favorite if I were to make them during the school hols next week.

I should try your Nutella cake (can't remember the long name), but belum sempat coz at the mo I have a gzilion things to do.

Have a good BBQ dear!

Ha, baru tau. Hot August Nights, eh? That's from an old Neil Diamond album I think.

Things are pretty 'hot' in Malaysia too --what's with DSAI's upcoming PP Election and the trial.

Eh, consulate tu memang haprak. Unless you're a VIP or VIP's wife or something. They're not doing much, just like on vacation. They should be proactive in getting expat Malaysian's together.. and yeah, do all that registering on line.

The Mummy III good? Here in Malaysia they put Dato' Michelle Yeoh as the top billing next to Brendan. How come you never mentioned DMY's performance? Agreed , Rachel Weisz was excellent in her role in the previous installments. BTW, that Brendan guy has 'overexposed' himself this summer by also being the lead in 'Journey', which me and my kids thought was a waste of money. Hellboy2 was waaay better!

Cath, memang nasib baik tak macam Msia. Kalau tak mau pengsan takde a/c. lol.

Yatie, now the weather lebih kurang macam when we went to florida. cant wait for fall!

Kak Ja, dgn budak2 kena buat wings lebih sikit. nanti bergaduh lah pulak. lol.

Jani, tengah puasa lah the best. just ask ur hubby to do the grilling. ;)

MS, malas nak layan benda2 'panas' back home.byk sgt merapu. :P consulate memang tak kisah kitorang yg not vip ni. i pun dah malas nak contact. Abt DMY, sekejap sgt her role in tht movie. i acually forgot to mention the part when she was reading the mantra in english. tengah2 cakap mandarin/cantonese, tetiba for tht part, in english pulak? pelik bin ajaib sungguh! hehe.

Mush, i dah baca abt the prob ur having w blogger. hopefully by now they have resolved it. ;)

NW, yes we did enjoy the bbq. the pic of the foods are in my other blog. ;)

Hi Farina

Speaking of weather, I thought they were done with naming hurricanes/tropical storms after female names. Not so (I was mistaken).. there is a tropical storm making its way to Cuba. The name - Fay! I guess what they are doing now is alternating between male and female names. Before Eduoard, it was Dolly (both made landfall in TX).

Looking at your honey marinated wings gives me an idea of what to do this weekend. :) First, I need to barbeque the ribeyes that I thawed in the fridge last night - flavour - either bbq mesquite or honey teriyaki. yumm. :)

Salt N Turmeric said...

Pearly, glad tht ur resting. There's no leftover but i did think of u when i was eating the wings. lol.

Kerp, not sure whc state version was the chicken rice but licin lah. hehe. anyways, lepaking, thani and ngumpating sounds like a great idea to spend merdeka day!

Daphne, where got hint one. :P

Nat, im glad u and kids like it. next time kena prepare byk2 since ur kids like to invite their frens over. lol.

JT, so now its both male and female. hehe. kelakar lah these ppl. honey teriyaki sounds yummy!
