Assalamualaikum and Salam Sejahtera to all...
Hello everyone, oh! it feel so long that I didn't update this blog, took me a month to post a new one but hey... here I am, alive and kicking... *smile*
One morning, as I was doing apple strudel in my kitchen, someone knocked the door. Right at the moment when I was playing with flour, butter, lard and milk trying to make a dough for my strudel, then this people want me to open the door. "Oh, can you come when the strudel cooked??" my heart said. "At least I got something to serve you!", with a little anger.
Without washing my hand, I opened the door. It was a women, standing like the Statue of Liberty or perhaps she was the statue herself, with her right hand holding unflame torch but hiding her left hand at the cycle of her back but I don't really want to question that. All I want to know was, why she came and what did she want but I can't help for being curious which has made me speechless like a rock but staring at her up and down. She was wearing a plain white 'baju kurung' like the local school girl except this is all white, not like that old fashion statue of Liberty cloth.
Her blue eyes looking at me, her lips start moving and suddenly she talks "I want to give you something". Not even a smile, she stunningly quiet after those words and moving her left hand out from hiding.
As her left hand shown, a handful of blond hair, she was giving it to me and said, "I am an angel and I just had a hair cut, may be you can get to use it better than me". I, without words pullout my flour gloved hand and took it from her slowly. It was like I was automatically moved my hand to take it and she walked away. I really thought an angel just came to my door, indeed she is an angel.
I still standing at my door, watching her walked, not a single word still, feels like I was completely in a comma... As she gone, then I realized that I was dreaming while playing the dough, but at the corner of the working table, I saw a packet of Angel Hair Pasta... so, I figured... Today's post is...
Note: 'Baju kurung' is a traditional dress for women.
2nd Note: This is one crap story but I like!!! hahaha
So, you have no idea what is 'Kupang'? me too!!! Kidding... Well kupang is more like babies mussels, they are seasonal, only available for a period of time in a year. Its a local ingredient and found somewhere in Brunei Bay during low tide. Fisherman would go into the shallow water and step on the river floor, finding this kupang. 'Rangat Kupang' is the term used for 'kupang' that has already removed from shell which can be found sold in a packet at local market 'Tamu'.
