Roti Canai Phobia

Nothing better than a teh tarik and a roti canai to start your day.

I went to my normal coffee shop. I ordered a Malaysian typical breakfast, roti telur and teh tarik. I dig in while it was still hot. Dipped in curry, I slipped a small piece in my mouth. It melted like butter on toast. The steam oozes out, reaching for the sky.

BLUEEEKKK.

I spit out the piece. It tasted horrible, way off the typical roti telur I knew. I picked up the plate and held it close to my nose. Yup, it’s rotten egg.

I complained and was offered another plate. I declined, paid and left.

Since then, I haven’t had roti canai (& it’s family) and kinda wondered how it tastes like. Thanks to that coffee shop, I’ve just introduced myself another phobia, roti telur other than deep sea diving.

Fact: A roti canai contains more fat than a nasi lemak.

Which reminded me of one peribahasa I created when I used to love baking. “Kerana telur sebiji, rosak bancuhan kek coklat“.

So what’s the best way to start your day? A pack of Biskut Tiger and soya bean.

ps: Selamat Malam semua (8 am)

Does it have anything to do with gender? Most great chefs are male.

I guess so but it’s more to “Wei tata, kau tu pompuan, tapi tak reti masak! Si Ed ni pun reti buat kek! Buat malu kaum aje lau kau ni!” something like that.

Now you know why both nasi lemak and roti canai slows you down.

best way to start ur day…
eat low GI food such as oat (usually carbs with high fiber… i think) so that ur energy is constant throughout the day..

low GI food doesn’t taste good, especially oat. It tastes pale and dull.

owh this’s about taste then,bukannye kesihatan..haih..i rest my case la kalo gitu,haha

“It tastes pale and dull..(gaya Calvin & Hobbes).Suddenly the big gulp of icky oat became a giant monster. It invaded the house and searched for eddy. Luckily a transformer-like robot which is actually a USB drive (refer to eddy’s older post) kills the oat monster”

just eat the damn oat,u spoil brat!! 😀 😀

I do eat oats, but in cereal form. I sometimes munch them while doing work. Else, how could I lost nearly 20kg?
