: : Dandruff : :
If you think for one moment that I have dandruff….. you’re actually not that far off. It’s a never-ending battle with this despicable problem. Thank goodness for Selsun Blue.
Got another mention at another site called dandruff. More ppl dropping by. Thanks for the support. The blog is in a big of a mess but I gotta solve my FTP problem with Jaring first before cleaning it up and moving to another website. Will be weeks down the road.
Thanks for the link, sniffles! *Sniff sniff*, I’m touched! :p Ha!
: : Life Cafe : :
Yep, went back again. Had dinner with Peter, a friend of Mum’s from secondary school (high school). He wanted to eat something simple and Asian so took him to Life Cafe.
Sago Pearls with Green Tea
The pearls are not real pearls lah! It’s actually made from sago but overseas, it’s usually made from tapioca flour. A lot of milk in the tea but tasty good. Thirst quencher, that’s for sure. It became the ‘IN thing’ to drink in Taiwan and it spread to other parts of Asia. Comes in all sorts of flavour like green apple, guava, papaya, banana, passionfruit, orange, peach, etc. Not much variety in Life Cafe but this was good enough for me.
Ice-Blended Passion Fruit
Peter had this. The ice was blended together with fresh passion fruit. The picture didn’t come out so well because lighting was too low and the flash too strong.
Life Cafe Spicy Noodles
This was great. Egg noodles with minced pork and mushrooms with some chilli oil inside. I took the medium spicy version. Some of the dishes can be made with different levels of spicyness : mild, medium, hot, extra hot!! Even medium spicy was a bit too hot but bearable with my good friend : ice cold water!!
Peter had the Traditional Claypot Rice and we also had some Pan-Fried Dumplings. You can read about it in the earlier posting on Life Cafe.

Yep, lunch again at the favourite spot with the usual gang. It’s just a great place to eat. Plus, it’s halal and the food is also spicy. Great sambal. Here’s a rundown on the food we ate.
FooChow Mee is a very wet dish. It’s fried mee, the wet version i.e. a lot of gravy. Taste great. I dunno how they cook it so don’t ask. The mee is not the usual egg noodles. Dunno what they put in. I just eat it. :p
This is the congee version i.e. the rice granules are very small. JW asked for a raw egg to be put with it. Usually common to eat a raw egg with the porridge. Mix it with the porridge and it becomes half-cook.
Not the original version from West Malaysia but the best so far in Kuching. It’s extremely spicy!! I get a stomach ache if I eat this. Same goes for Granny and Uncle Cyril. It’s slightly sweetish and salty at the same time.
One of the best in Kuching. Translation : fatty rice. The rice is cooked with coconut milk so it’s very fattening. When people are talking about good nasi lemak, usually means the rice is tasty and the sambal(chilli paste) is great. Only these two important items make a great nasi lemak. It’s a common meal that is quite filling. Other condiments are peanuts, cucumber, half of a hard-boiled egg and ikan billis (salted dried anchovies).
That was lunch. No, I did not eat everything. Cannot lah! Please, I’m not a glutton. :p
: : Snacks : :
I cheated this time. I saw an article on the kueh jala and by coincidence, it was being sold at the Rainforest World Music Festival. So, bought some and took it home to take pictures.
Kueh Jala is a favourite amongst the young and old. Translation is netting cake. Very fattening though. It’s very crunchy but it breaks easily. The batter is made from flour, brown sugar, salt and water. The batter is pour into a coconut husk that has many tiny holes drilled through. The batter then drips into a ban of hot oil. I love it. I suppose it’s more of a technique than anything else as one has to prevent the kueh from getting too burnt.
I found the article in the ‘Sarawak Discovery’ paper. It’s a free newspaper leaflet that I took from a hotel. Sorry, not online. It’s full of interesting articles. Am surprise that they do not put this online because it makes great reading for Sarawak. Oh well.
