Spittoon Extra is running a one-off meme asking bloggers to feature what they ate for their breakfast on Sunday, this November 20th. At first, when I read about the meme, I brushed it aside as I so rarely eat breakfast nowadays. During the week days, breakfast is almost non-existent for me and nowadays even weekend breakfasts have become a limited edition.
Surprisingly, we got to eat breakfast yesterday as we had a nice early start since it was cleaning new house day. Splashie Boy and I chose to eat at our regular mamak stall just round the corner from my place. These guys really know both of us so well: our drinks will arrive on the plastic table within seconds after we sit down. Essential for morning brekkies is a nice hot glass of tea with a dash of calamansi lime juice (Teh O Limau Panas in Malay). By the way, I thought I'll also show you the Nasi Lemak packets on the side. The stalls will pre-pack them in brown paper and banana leaves so you just pick one from the table.
I always have two half boiled eggs with a dash of soya sauce at the mamak stall. This kinda reminds me of my childhood days as my mother used to force us to eat the eggs for breakfast every morning before going to school. Surprisingly, I converted Splashie Boy to have this too and he now adds this to his weekend brekkie menu. Another essential part of our lazy Sunday breakfasts is the Sunday Star (you can see it below the eggs) which comes in handy sections so we can share and read. The paper is a favourite for both of us since we have two friends writing articles in the Sunday Star Mag.
After a quick peek at the headlines, (what!? that six year old kid can teach mathematics tuition), we had a nice crunchy Roti Planta. This is essentially a roti canai stretched out and slathered with Planta margarine. It gets nicely toasted on the griddle till it's crispy. I eat mine plain while Splashie Boy always has his with dhall (curried lentils).
Drats! It's time to leave our leisurely brekkie and start work! Sigh! So much to do during the weekends and so little time. Hope you enjoyed your weekend and breakfast too. Would love to hear what you all had for your breakfast yesterday, so do drop me a comment.
