but i can't make rendang, pulut kuning, sayur lala or gulai sembilang salai like fairus. you gimme ketam and i wouldn't know what to do with it. gimme daging and i couldn't tell when it's done. some people know up to 10 different lauk using santan. i probably know only one.
so when i say i tried to make nasi ayam for the first time, it is a big deal.

i wanted to do this for our anniversary. a suprise. mr. khairul went to work that sunday morning, and off i went on an adventure which involved a dell notebook, an actual notebook and multiple windows opened - mostly with the words 'nasi', 'ayam', 'resepi' and 'senang'. hihi.
i googled, and i googled hard. i looked for the simplest way to make chicken rice, using the least complicated ingredients. and this was what i came up with. the end result was satisfactory!

ok judge me all you want but i was very proud of myself! making nasi ayam for the first time and it tastes pretty okay!
the rice was the usual soft and sweet-smelling but had less chicken-taste lah. can anyone help - give tips or tell me what i might have done wrong, and what you usually do differently?
the chicken was finger-lickin-fantabulous - marinate with oyster sauce, kicap tamin, garlic and honey - but i wish it had been double-fantabulously juicy like fairus's chicken. ayam dia juicy gile!
i can't get over how wonderful these dips turned out! the chilli sauce sweet and spicy, while the garlic soy sauce emits a most tantalizing smell, especially when poured over the freshly fried marinated chicken.

okay, when all was done, it all boiled down to what this one man says. after all i was cooking for his tummy!
yay! nanti bole masak lagi!
