believe it or not, but our customers requested for a price increase! let me repeat - our customers requested for a price increase!! can you believe that? they asked for more rice coz they said that the sambal was super power and the chicken got kick **my hubby blushing**.
so now, it's $2 per packet with more rice, one whole fried egg, ginger fried chicken, fried fish and fried ikan bilis.
last sunday we went around looking for this gadget...
...more professional, don't you find?
and our sales is increasing. gossssh...wish we had our own stall to run **pray pray**.
we did some brainstorming and guess what? we came up with two **secret** signature dishes, and my hubby is now working on the ingredients to give them more 'body'. more updates **i hope soon** when these dishes are finally ready for serving **smiling like crazy old couple**.
my hubby had his another sales (beside brownie and cheesecake) - nasi lemak with ginger fried chicken at $1.50 per packet for nightshift workers. and last wednesday, the 7th, my hubby received his first order of nasi lemak. with number of packets prepared and ready for delivery, we left home at about 9pm heading towards tuas. somehow, HE decided to stop us from reaching our destination. the car battery went flat in the middle of the tuas highway. it was dark with few cars drove by. my hubby had to call all his customers to apologize coz it seemed they won't be receiving their order that night. my hubby felt bad about it but it was really beyond our control. lucky for us they understood the situation and didn't press for anything.
while waiting for the tow-truck, one nice stranger stopped and offered help but we told him that the tow-truck was already on the way. and what happened to the packets of nasi lemak? well, we couldn't bring them back...who gonna eat them all? there was this factory nearby the road and a group of indian foreign workers were standing there watching us, and my hubby and i decided that maybe (in view of deepavali), the food was actually meant for them. one of them jumped over the fence, down the slope in his sarong after seeing my hubby waving his hand and calling them. my hubby handed him the box full of our nasi lemak packets and told him to distribute them to his friends. he asked my hubby how many packets, he smiled later and said, "that's just enough for each of us". he said thank you and went back to his friends who were waiting. we saw everyone took a packet each.
looking at my hubby smiling, i agreed with him that maybe GOD had brought us there with the food. i guess we did cook for them. it is deepavali anyway. we both are strong believers of qadak and qadar. and we trust HIM with all HIS secrets.
and for our presea...my hubby and i felt so sad watching him being towed away. we managed to take few pictures of him when the tow-truck driver dropped us somewhere in choa chu kang. he's been with with the family for many years and he's like our own baby. only GOD knows how we really felt watching him looking like that. we felt the pain like any parent would feel for his own child. i hope they take good care of him and we can take him home soon. we miss him dearly...
today i witnessed the best wedding ever. it's so full of happiness...very the lively. the groom arrived with his kuda kepang warriors, accompanied with the roar from kompang and gamilan. the warriors led the groom to meet his bride with awesome dance steps. it was a beautiful wedding with huge number of guests just kept flowing in to share the joyful occassion. even my hubby had to agree it was the best wedding he ever attended. it's not because of the banquet or comfortable seats, but it was the warmth that we felt.
and they both deserve the title 'couple of the year', don't you think? siti looked so pretty.her smile could tell how happy she was. and i'm so very happy for her.
