~Homemade Strawberry Yoghurt @ Dadih Strawberi~

This is my first try at making 'dadih' based on a recipe found in the internet. However, I had to modify the recipe a bit (I didn't have jelly powder and had to use jelly strips) and this is the result.

Place this cups of 'dadih' into the fridge and it'll be ready to be served in a few hours. ;)

Nasi Lemuni

This is how I make nasi lemuni. Actually it is a 'Nasi Lemak' and the only difference is I added some extract of the lemuni leaves.

Lemuni leaves. Cut into small pieces and blend. Then extract the juice (tapis ler)

This is salted queenfish (ikan talang kering). Fry just a moment to put into sambal tumis.

Wash rice, put in onion, ginger and pepper. Add on coconut milk, lemuni leaves extract, pandan leaves and a pinch of salt. Ready to cook.

The finished products. Nasi lemuni and sambal tumis and also hard-boiled egg. A very simple dish you can eat for breakfast or any other time. :)

Pesta Makanan Warisan @ Dataran Merdeka (Merdeka Square), KL

I hope I got the event name right.. The event was held by the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage (KeKKWa)

The landmark of Dataran Merdeka, Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad

The crowd. There was a cooking demonstration in the morning
The only time my eldest son can sit still - jigsaw puzzle

Count the bananas and guess the correct weight contest. Notice the cute orangutan on top of the bananas. Did you see the lizard guarding the trees? If not for it, Yiyi would have gone to get the durian.. hehehe.. right after the contest had ended, the durian had been 'sacrificed'

There were crafts demonstration. I like looking at the way the makciks (old ladies) in action. Feels so like at kampung.

Ceramic Pottery

A traditional coconut grinder. You have to pedal to make the machine works.. great exercise!

Have you seen this before?

Among exhibits shown. All about traditional food and spices
Sehari @ the National Art Gallery

Take note that visitors can take picture here as long as they don't use flash. Flash can damage the painting (make the paint melt)

The gallery where I took my photos :
There were also a competition called Bakat Muda Sezaman 2006 or the 2006 Young Contemporaries. I managed to snap two of the works :

The works by this artist, Azliza Ayob won an award in this competition.

This is another 'huge' works called Elvis From Sepilok. It's made from all types of brushes including colourful toilet brush. Ever imagine it could be a beautiful work of art?

Among the works that captured my attention/lenses:

This is a work by Malaysian artist Latif Maulan. His paintings are very realistic looking. Look at the drops of dew on the flower.
