Abang: Kalau 70 orang boleh ke?
One of the sceneries that I manage to appreciate on my way to..and back from the hospital.. ARAB BADWI!!! Truly I've never expected that they still exist huu..
Me in front of King Abdullah University Hospital which is attahed to Jordan University of Science and Technology.. By the word 'attached', I really mean they are attached physically :)
Still in the hospital, deciding to go back early haha..to do some shopping for the planned makan2
We went to Balad, and here was abang with his big notebook! I told him repeatedly [REPEATEDLY sampai berbuih2 mulut] to tear off the page that contained our shopping list..but he refused! Kelihatanlah seperti student yang tersesat di pasar.
Us in one of the stalls, selling big fruits and veges. The size of this cabbage was approximately twice the sice of my face. The size of a an egg-plant can be up to the size of a football haha
Abang in another stall.. I can tell you, buying 7 chickens, 8kg of potatoes, 2 big cabbages, a big plastic bag of carrots, another big plastic bag of egg-plant, onions, garlics and more.. isn't 1 happy thing to do. They are HEAVY! Next we went to a new shopping complex, C-Town (they claim that household things are cheaper there). By the time we arrived home, it was 4.30pm GOSH!
Problems came one after another. 1st I complaint of inadequate utensils, forcing abang to borrow from his neighbours. I needed a big pot to cook the rice, and a neighbour lent his..which was leaking, and repaired by putting a plaster (Handiplast to be specific! Forgot to take a pic of that one) I wasn't very convinced though, probably a suture would be better~ Then we borrowed an electric blender from another neighbour, well...it threatened to blow up..so we had to borrow another blender. Time was running out, and abang being a good helper (who actually cut his hand when I requested for his help to wedge the potatoes, cut his hand for the second time when he tried to peel the garlic), in the end I knew I had to deal with the palpitation practically ALONE. Don't get me wrong though..he was more than eager to help.. a good runner boy indeed hehe running to the nearby grocery store more than once.. P/s I forgot to mention that abang tried baking chocolate cake (kesian betul birthday boy kena bake cake sndiri huu) tapi tak jadi pulak.. Never mind I''ll try to bake another one for your groupmates k (huu asyik mintak je nak kek nak bg groupmates dia huu)
Precisely at 10pm..abang's friends came to fetch the food. Farfalle was all mushed up (ni abang yg hancurkan k sewaktu dia nak gaul2 hehe), didn't manage to make coleslaw and 1 of the rice (cooked 2 pots of rice, 9kg in total) was not perfectly cooked (ada jelatah sket2), so we decided to finish cooking it the next day. All in all everything was okay, I took my bath and had a good night sleep while Abang enjoyed the food downstair.
The next day, the I had my breakfast of nasi maqlubah (which I personally think was quite tasty haha), but in the evening it became rotten. So we threw away the rice, tried to save the chickens and made roasted chicken with black pepper instead, as well as the coleslaw :)
Well that's about all.. an experience indeed, and I'm happy that at least I managed to make something for Abang's birthday hehe. Now..the CaKes....
