IT'S PAYDAY .......

Almost everybody will be alert comes end or early of the month because it's Salary Day. Mine will be today (on the 24th) and no wonder everybody in the office looks motivated. If there's one day that everybody will be smiling first thing in the morning it got to be this day.

Hmmm ...what to do ? Mine will be to use some of it to threat my family to a nice dinner and then will ensure all loans to be paid accordingly. The balance will be saved. Not a very adventurous plan but at least I'm saving for the future.

Now looking forward to the next payday ........

In the stadium full with 'RED GIANT" supporters

My kids with their 'AUNTIES' .........

Another convincing win for Selangor .......

I've my promised my son that I would take him to Shah Alam Stadium to watch a football match one day, and only last 2 weeks the promised materialized. And the best thing not only him, the whole family plus the aunties went for the game.

It was between Selangor (our team) and N.Sembilan. Good game. Fantastic atmosphere (although my wife didn't like it ...come on dear it's a football match supposed to be crowded and wild !!!). Final result favours our team 3 to 0.

Anyway, going to the football match in Malaysia is probably similar to going to Baseball (MLB) or Basketball (NBA) in the U.S and it's like a place where you can scream as loud as you want and nobody will be upset (in fact they will scream together cheering the team).

This is a traditional Javanese food that is very popular in Malaysia. What make it interesting is the way to eat it. It's served in a big plate call 'DULANG' on top of banana leaf to add extra aroma. The rice, vege , fried chicken and others (such as fried noodle) are serve together in the dulang and if you can see closely from the picture (the one that I'd have last few months) the fried noodle is arrange in 4 direction which indicates to be eaten 4 person in a group or DULANG.

Nasi Ambeng is a very good example of a delicacy that not only come with a wonderful taste but it gets people together. Sharing the food in one big plate give the opportunity to do more than eating that is socializing and it works...Although one might find it a little big uncomfortable.

If you've eaten Nasi Ambeng in a true traditional way you might agree with me but if you have not experienced it you should ASAP then only you can understand what I'm talking about.
