First post from my new nest

Finally settled into my new place. It's great - bigger, comfier, better equipped, and cost just about the same!

Life is good.

To break in my new kitchen, I cooked an old time favourite - Nasi Lemak (with the help of new apartment-mate, H).

Going clockwise, starting from the top:
* Boiled eggs (accidentally left it boiling too long, and it turned out HARD! Still edible lah, but it was quite impossible to do the Egg Blowing trick)
* Fried peanuts
* Mixed Seafood sambal (I'm out of anchovies). Cooked using Brahim's pack.
* Fried Belacan Chicken
* Fresh cucumbers.

In the middle, rice cooked with coconut milk and onions (to substitute ginger, which I'm not a very big fan of).

Turned out OK OK oni lah. Better than the 50 sen version you get at mamak stalls, but not too spectacular either.

Got some pics of my recent holiday from Jay.

Had a go at punting. It was great fun...

... and I learnt that I was completely hopeless at it.

Played 3 games of golf in 4 days. Once on a par-3 course, and twice a full course.

I still suck.

It takes a lot of balls to golf like me.

Summer + Barbecue + freezing cold beer = good shit
