Selamat Hari Raya!
The tenants of the house I mentioned in my last post moved out during the week and we were able to get a much better look at the place yesterday. Unfortunately, we decided that it would be too complicated to fix up, so it’s back to hunting.
One thing I enjoy about our Saturdays spent house hunting is the opportunity to try out new cafes in our potential new neighbourhood. Yesterday, we had coffee at Luca Haus (coffee was good, pastries were OK but for some reason were served to us unheated) and lunch at West 48 (below).
Today is Hari Raya Aidilfitri (or Eid as it is more widely known as in Australia) so to commemorate the occasion, I tried to make a Malaysian meal, which I rarely attempt. I usually prefer to eat out if I want something authentic, as I have no doubt that it would be far nicer than anything I make myself.
The photo’s a little dark, but it’s essentially nasi tumpang, beef serunding, ikan bilis sambal, and bok choy (for some greens). Served with fried onion and hard boiled egg on the side, it made a great meal (even though it wasn’t 100% accurate!).
Happy Eid to all Muslims out there!
