I walked to riverside and back. Total of three hours of walk. I’m exhausted and elated at the same time. There is something about putting one feet in front of another.
Fish n chips is one of my favourite foods. I had fish in my fridge but no potatoes to make chips. Anyhow, I battered and fried the fish, whipped up a tartare sauce and cooked peas until they are mushy.
Until last night, I’m under the impression that mushed peas requires only peas and water. My research on internet says baking powder should be added to the peas and water. I added a tea spoon of baking powder. It turned out perfect. Who would have thought.
Perhaps the whole point is about prioritizing. Of course Mamdhu comes before anyone else in my life and spending time and money on things that involves him makes sense.
Today, I went to a nearby mall to grab a mcflurry, and on my way to McD I saw Ummm milk. I have never had their ice-cream before. At this instant it came to me, if I’m spending money, why not spend on something new!
I’m loving this mall nearby. Its so bohemian and they have a nursery with beautiful flowers in bloom.
After hanging out at the mall, I went to book shop and bought Tales of a Female Nomad. The title resonated with me immediately!
I made iced passionfruit and lemon tea.
I met a friend for breakfast and we ended up spending the whole day together, drinking fruit shakes, browsing through a bookshop, window shopping and drinking tea.
Mamdhu and I went to a Mid-Eastern restaurant (again!) for dinner.
P.S. my friend (the one I was with today) thinks my blog is full of food pics because my inner child is always hungry. I would like to send her a huge hug for the lovely day. Thank you for being my friend.
We dined at the same restaurant we ate at last night, Beirut Restaurant at Pleonchit Centre. We ordered for an altogether a different meal, making it feel like a whole new experience.
I tried Nammourah (not in photos) for the first time. It is the Lebanese version of Basbousa. I might be wrong, but it seems so to me. Correct me if I’m wrong.
