Nasi Kucing ( Cat Rice)

Nasi kucing (cat rice)

HOLIDAY MADNESS! I must admit that I am one of those crazy people who like shopping on 'Black Friday'. Not so much of looking a good bargain though, but I don't know I just enjoy those crazy people falling on shopping until the last breath! Mostly I only get 2 or 3 items during that madness day. Then spend the rest of morning just relaxing on the food court with a cup or coffee and a donut. Then watching people come and go eagerly to find a crazy deal. Being PATIENT is a must on black Friday, well sometimes we don't get what we want to with patient right. I guess it is depends on how people would like to spend their 'black friday'. I never go to WALLMART though, that place is totally insane!

Now, I am sitting here full of crazy ideas on what to make for the holidays. I want to bake cakes and cookies, sew hat and gloves, and not forget about cook fancy food. Reading from one magazine after magazine and hoping they will give me an easy idea about baking, sewing and cooking. BUT, instead I am stuck!! My tummy rumble, oh dear I haven't eaten since this morning. Just a cup of coffee is totally not enough. Spent the whole morning to noon trying to get brilliantly inspirited and the next thing I know I'm eating NASI KUCING (cat rice).

Nasi Kucing (cat rice)

What is Nasi Kucing (cat rice)? It is well known among student in Java island, Indonesia. Mostly student eat Nasi Kucing because their money is tight and they don't have time at all to cook. Nasi Kucing is quite inexpensive. The size of it, its about a cup of rice with little bit of side dish. Wrapped in bananas leaf. Other than plain rice, I fried anchovy and nuts then cook them together with thai pepper and onions. It is very spicy for sure. When you eat nasi kucing simply do not expect any good nutrition*wink*. A very simple lunch for myself today:)

Also want to be thankful to the host and judges for giving me the honor of taking third place on DMBLGIT November 2008 hosted by Sugaya.

Thank you as well to Sefa from Food is Love who gave me an “inspiring award” - thank you for thinking of me.

Virtually scrumptious, Dwi!
I never heard of this "Nasi Kucing" before. Maybe it wasn't exist in Malang, or maybe I just didn't know (that's more likely).

You are totally the opposite of me, I always avoid any crowd like that (so does my husband and my son). That is why I don't go to any "Sale" shopping event! Plus, I never really find anything that I like. Most of them aren't for sale. But, I totally understand you, Dwi (don't get me wrong). For some people this is a fun event, like you said, not necessary for the shopping itself, but more of to watch the people in and out the shops.

The stampede in Walmart is totally horrendous, unbelievably insane. I couldn't understand how people can be so ignorant!

Have a wonderful weekend, hope you get some inspiration for the baking, and blog about it soon.
Xoxo,
Elra
