Yummilicious chilli fish!

Fried fish drown in a sea of chillies.

This was one of my favorite food for supper when I was growing up in Pontian. The shop sold rice with cooked dishes and will opened late into the night as they also cater to those fishermen coming home from sea in the early morning.

Judy was the one who brought it up again when we had lunch with Rani in May. Judy, a Singaporean, who came to visit once back in 1993 or 1994. Only once and she remembered for life!

They closed or moved to somewhere else due to some family feud. Over the years, I have always asked mum where did they go since dad and mum know the people, who's who cousin or something but I never got an answer and I made the assumption that they stop selling.

Anyway, I reminiscent with friends a few weeks back about this shop near the bridge and lo and behold I was told they are now selling at the stalls opposite Pei Chun primany school! I told mum but she did not send dad to buy from there. I don't know why.

Last Friday, mum called to ask if I was going home and what to buy for dinner. I suggested this fish and dad went to buy. When I got home they were 2 left on the table and I finished both, that's how delicious it was. Dad grumbled that mum keep sending him elsewhere to buy food .... LOL!!!

How good was it? Well, mum had it 3 days in a row.....

Day 6

This was how the room looked like yesterday.....

Have to stop work 2 months for the room because of the "bait" thing. I tried to draw a circle but obviously its not working. It is the square thing behind the pail.

The bathroom where the bathtub used to be....

the other side of the wall

These were taken yesterday during lunch time. By the end of the day, they finished the wall tiles already.

Day 2 - Day 6?

Day 2 was last Wed!!!

I know, my 'lil sis called early this morning to complain already, "Why no updates after Day 1".

It's not my fault you know... I woke up this morning and its Day .... I lost count. Time flies nowadays.

ok, if I remember correctly there were a lot of commotion on Day 2. The management send the termite people to come look at my room since they heard got termite but they knew that for a couple of years already! Anyway, to cut the story short, we cannot clear the parquet because they want to set the 'bait' and it will take 6 - 8 weeks for it to work. Sigh!

We went ahead with the bathroom... did not take pictures, sorry.

The next few days gone like a blurr. Probably because have to wake up really early, not enough sleep? Will try to snap a photo of the work in the bathroom later.
a little note to self...

you have already eaten, don't go to people's blog and complain why never bring for you to makan...

Day 1

No, not dieting…. ^_* nor exercise…

Been wanting to renovate my room and bathroom for a while now and finally made the call again last week and the contractor was able to slot me in this time.

This is how my room looks like now...

No, the apartment is not in a mess becaused the door is closed and of course SIL probably already swept and moped before I got home from work.

So I am being defensive, starting sentences with "No".
