"Let your heart guide you. It whispers, so listen closely..."
It’s nearing the end of Ramadhan. I thank Allah for His help with the month-long act of patience and self-control.
This morning, I searched high and low for the rendang cili api recipe. While peeling the onions for the rendang, I shed tears to no end. But they may as well be tears of happiness and sadness. I am happy to still be alive and blessed to witness and complete yet another Ramadhan and to celebrate the coming of Syawal. But I am also feeling sad, for this Eid would not be as joyous as previous years. This year we would not be able to taste my emak’s rendang and kuah lodeh any more.

I have been spending my weekdays in Melaka since my emak fell sick. I am back in KL for the weekend and would be cooking the rendang for the family. I miss my emak's cooking and would give up any elite recipe for my emak's dish anytime.
