Of Good Company, Good Food and Good Concert!

I had a really good weekend. After being emotional for the past few days I was happy to go on this roadtrip to Awana Baiduri which is next to Awana Kijal, T'ganu.


Being me, I'm always prepared for everything. Hubby thought it was weird of me to bring the mosquito repellant and yoko yoko but hey! U never know when you're gonna need it so better be safe than sorry. So hubby and I left for Kuantan around 10 am and we convoyed with 2 other cars. It was a fun roadtrip coz my friend's hubby got us a walkie talkie each and we were yakking non-stop in the car. So tak mengantuk sangatlah drive. Bukan I drive pun. Heheh...




Reached another friend's house in Kuantan at 12.30pm where she cooked chicken rice for for us for lunch. Yummylicious and memang we all kena spoil abis lah. Asyik makan jer.





We lepak2 at her house and prayed and started our journey to Awana Baiduri around 2.30pm. On the way we stopped at this gerai called "Nafisah" where I had the most delicious "sata" (made from fish) ever! I mean I'm not really a fan of Kelantanese delicacies because they tend to be sweet but this sata is sweet and spicy! The right combination for me.



A very burnt looking "sata" but it tasted good nonetheless! And why do they call it keropok sagu instead of keropok lekor I wonder?

As soon as we reached Awana around 5pm we unloaded everything from the car and start cooking already. I siap bawak oven and another friend brought an electric grill kay coz we were told that we couldn't do the BBQ on the beach.
Good food, good company...what else could anyone ask for?









On the way back we stopped at one of those shops along the road to get some sotong and ikan kering for my mom. Rambang mata tengok all those things hanging from the ceiling of the shop. Hehehe...






p/s : I went to Gwen Stefani's concert last night. It was awesome! awesome! awesome! That woman is soo adorable and so energetic. Who would've thought Gwen Stefani has a Malaysian connection huh? The papers reported that Gavin Rosdale's stepmom is a Malaysian. Kira adalah bau-bau bacang skit...

Gwen - ok la, but I did wish for her not covering up.

Nour said...

Cosmic_GurL said...

Ardy - Gwen is more glorious than the food kay. Heheehe..if u think food is much more tempting then id be worried :P

akula - she covered up more than any of the audiences at the concert. Respect giler! Heheh...i rasa she mesti felt weird how come she has to cover up but Msians pakai seksi selamba blh plak...double standard betul

website pun ada y'all..

shell said...

takleh travel bukan sebab risky... sebab cuti kena reject...

aaiiihhh

pugly said...

I felt embarrassed reading that piece on what she thinks of the whole hoo-ha in The Star the other day. It sounded as if she couldn't believe how it got blown out of proportion. Sure dia fikir: 'Apahal la poyo sgt Malaysia ni ... !'

That said, what about PCD? They 'dressed' in their usual get-up & nobody made nay noise.

suzequatro said...

u like sata huh! i dont. very fishy. but good that u had a fun time. anyways, gwen is my cousin..shhhhhh :O

tak stop Hai Peng ke otw to Awana?

Cosmic_GurL said...

Des - Serious?? Got website all? Fuiyooo! Next time I lalu Kemamang I have to look for this kopitiam la

shell - Haiyooo..siannyer...takper takper nanti u beranak dpt cuti panjang..hehehe

pugly - Thats coz Gwen is a pop icon so thats why la kot some ppl make noise. As a Malaysian I pun rasa malu...I think when she saw what the audience was wearing mesti dia pelik why ada double standard..sheesh!

suze - But this sata tasted different suze...quite pedas..i loikes...kalau Gwen is your cousin then I'm her niece. Kitakan bersaudara. Ahaks!

gravtkills - See, this kind of info u ppl should tell me BEFORE I go on my trip la...lepas dah balik baru i found out that this Hai Peng place is quite happening...rugi tul!

UglyButAdorable said...

waa...itu sata sungguh menggiurkan...my fevret tuuhhh...takper lagi 7 hari saya akan dpt merasakan mu...hehhh..hehhh

Ehh..JT going or not..if he comes...

Amy said...

Sherry - Saya adalah sgt jeles. But happy coz u had a great time. ISkk, jeles tahap dewa ok? :D

Angel Eyes said...

Oh boy! I'm so famished right now!

Damn!

Cosmic_GurL said...

UBA - Oh yeah other than sata jgn lupa singgah Hai Peng..according to Des, it's the best kopitiam in Kemaman..ader ice blended coffee lagi...heheehe

Yes, yes, jom kita pegi tengok JT beramai-ramai nak?

Amy - Ala ajak your hubby pegi honeymoon lagi sekali..ahaks!

angeleyes - Go and have your breakfast dear!

Theta said...

I've yet to inhale kerepok lekor or sata. But I've done TGIF, roti canai, chicken rice, McD and KFC! Hehe....

Still adjusting to the fast-paced lifestyle of KL though.
