|My first ever laksa Johor. I'm loving it :)|
On one evening when I just came back from work, I feel so tired, but I still need to cook dinner. I look at husband..he really has problems of eating in small portion. Reminds me to bring him for leptin check later on. ahaha xp. Seriously, why men eat so much @_@ or is it only him?@_@ I requested a big fridge when we move because I dreamed of becoming a domestic goddess who can fill the kitchen with food everywhere. So far, my refrigerator only contains the shelf, and so does my dry food shelf, where I have prepared nice container to stock up biscuits, cookies, buns, etc. All empty. Looks like I married to a food processor or something. ahahaha xp.
In regards to this 'problem', I feel obliged to cook something healthy every time. I try. One effort I try to put now is to make sure he gets variety of nutrition in one week. It is such a struggle still, given that when I am home, the energy left is just to cook.haha xp. Still working on it.
So on that evening, all I can find in my kitchen was a stack of canned tuna which I carried with me from Hiroshima to Nagoya, now back to Hiroshima @_@ and a whole lot of pasta @_@. I feel the urge to use them right away. Then a bulb of idea popped out, I see Aim's face.
She said, "now is the time for you to try my laksa Johor"!
And I was like...why not?! Let`s do it!

So simple right? But believe me, it turned out so sedap and fulfilling. My husband is not a fan of laksa but he likes this one and you guessed it right..I had problems stopping him that night T_T
Well, I guess the 'How to make Malaysian dishes from canned-tuna' series end here. For now. hahaha xp
