Sometimes it really crack my head to think of what the day's menu or what to cook?.....since there'r some left over fresh meat in the freezer i'll make ' gulai kicap daging' n 'assam pedas melaka'. If only faiz is here...it's his favourite. As for dira this is the recipe of the gulai kicap daging. She has been asking me several times for the recipe each time when she's back n i keep on forgetting.
