one lazy evening, i got pretty excited to know that i was finally on the right path to a healthy body & mind - exercise. so i was dressed up in a normal tshirt and sweatpants without a hint of makeup.
to my horror when tidja and awie came to pick me up they looked nothing like those wanting to go for a jog.
turns out that we were going to ipoh for ayam penyet. miscom. HAHA. darn. oh well. how can i resist food? foooooood. oh yummy food...
the place was in Ipoh, at the new buidling just opposite jj which is the utpians typical place of hanging out. it was my first time there, and also my very first time to indulge into this sumptuous traditional Indonesian cuisine:
ayam penyet (smashed crispy fried chicken)
time to activate your taste buds:
it is served with marinated chicken, fried beancurd, tempe, boiled kangkong, rice and sambal belacan. unique thing about the ayam penyet is that the chicken is crispy outside and juicy+tender inside. you can taste the herbs and spices with such exquisite details. the sambal belacan i tell you...was blazing hot! so hooray for spicy lovers!
i almost cried and tidja's lips were so red that she did not need any lipstick. puteri stayed serene thoughout the whole meal. rindukan shafiq nakal la tuhh :P
and then we managed to take a couple of strolls around the new area. thumbs up to "De Closet" boutique! they sell woman garments from top to bottom. bags, heels, blouse, dress, skirts, belts, you name it. i bought a ruffled white top and tidja a very square looking handbag. one and only in Malaysia, the shop owner had claimed. i have no idea.
awie still, stayed calm. i was amazed by how she managed to restrain herself from buying anything there. i couldn't. the dresses were all calling for me. wanting me to stroke them, try them on, exchange them for a few Ringgits, put them in a glossy new plastic bag and then bring them home. aaaaaaaaah sinful temptations!!!
and now i have only rm1 in my wallet. sigh...
but it was fun! would really love to go out with you guys again!
and pls make sure that next time i will not be wearing sweatpants for shopping?
