The Water Urns

Sunday 3 April 2011



 I was invited by my good friend,  Tengku Norashikin, for her pot-luck birthday do at her house  recently.  It was a lunch affair and everyone brought their favourite dish.   There were traditional local cakes and a good lunch spread of chicken, rice,  etc.,

By far the most sumptious and finger licking good,  was, of course, Norita's  ( of the bread pudding fame )   tomato rice with a very very delicious  mutton dish.  I just don't know how to describe it and I also don't know how she comes up with such tasty and delicious concoctions.!    All I can say is that it was worth, worth , worth going all the way to Kajang for lunch !  I was so bowled over by her tomato rice and mutton dish that, after having second helpings ( that's a  very rare thing for me  and I don't usually like mutton) I even  asked Norita to let me take  some home !  It was that good lah !

As was usual, I clicked away with my new Kodak (did I tell that my earlier Kodak played out on me and I was forced to buy a new one?  It cost me RM 500.00  and that was way beyond my targeted budget of RM300.00.   I had no choice but to get that - all for my blog pictures lah!.  Now I know the real meaning behind   Donna Summers big hit of the 70's " Work hard for my Money " ( LOL- and literally mean it  ! )

Below are some of my ' work hard for my money' camera clicks .......................

The picture on the left is the  unpainted water urn with spout and the picture on the right shows what  decorative painting does to  enhance the beauty of  the water urn.
