What a surprisingly busy day it was yesterday.
In the morning, we were rushing off to the mosque, which turned out to be a very stressful event as we needed to be there in time for the mass prayers but there were many traffic bottlenecks and police blockages around the way and it took us more than an hour to reach there. It wasn’t so bad the past years.
After the sermon, we then rushed off to the mercato (wet market) to get some fresh vegetables. Cart wanted to make some Parmigiana di Melanzana, Pasta con Rughetta e Pomodorini, Fried bell peppers and Fried Zucchini.
And then we rushed off to the butcher (I was worried that it won’t be opened for the holiday) to get some meat for making polpette and then the supermercato to get snacky stuff like pretzels and crodino. And in the end, we had to lug about 100kg of groceries up the 2nd floor (3rd floor in Singaporean standards) up the stairs and fairly immediately after that, started cooking to host some friends afterwards.
We started cooking from 4pm and only finished everything at about 9pm. Even the simplest Italian food becomes tiring to make when you times it by 10 people. Just think if I made proper Malay food
Phew! I’m so exhausted. I think I’ll just slack around today
In the meanwhile, can you spot something interesting here?
