Prata Ibuu

I remember seeing my Indonesian friend post on this prata that she ate for iftar. If you haven’t already know, UK has brought out the Indian in me.

Thing is…. It’s in Jakarta. Yeah. There I was, fasting 19 hours in UK & people in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia are happily iftar-ing while it’s not even asar in UK.

Thank God it’s over. The thought….of 19hours. Ok, let’s not go there.

One of the reason I went to Jakarta a few days after being in Singapore is to buy this prata, online. Yup. Online kengkawans (friends)! My indonesia trip will always consist of me, eating my favourite dishes – padang, pempek palembang, bakwan, local drinks (es teler and whatnot) and more!

Now I have one more to add to the list.

I remember browsing through their IG and saw that they aren’t taking orders anymore, for the month, or something like that and almost gave up on getting my hands on these babies. But at the back of my mind I told myself let’s not give up and ask em!

Cause I was so busy, I only remembered that I needed to beep them on my third last day in Jakarta. Yup, last minute is my middle name. By then, again, I was prepared to not get my hands on it.

After a few ping pong-ing of messages, these good stuff came right at my aunts house within 3 hours. Given the Jakarta friday traffic, I was more than impressed!

I was stuck in the traffic for 3 hours! We broke our fast in the car. >.<

Oh, did I mention I had 2 plates of prata on that day?

Round 2.

Different location but same day, don’t worry.

Why am I suddenly blogging about this?

Cause I just had 3 pieces (yasss, I brought them back to SG, hehe) and I just had to.

If you’re in Jakarta, or any part of Indonesia, don’t forget to try em. They’d go very well with fish curry!

Maybe….. That’s it!

I’ve got a same age cousin but we’re always known for our stark differences. One of em is boys.

Apparently, I’m the weird one with no crushes whatsoever – they refuse to include michael jackson, cause loving him since 3 isn’t good enough to make the cut, pfft  – while the other, like others, have crushes and relationships.

My cousin even once said that something must be wrong with my hormones. bahaha. too much soya bean milk I guess, cause y’know, soya beans can mess up your hormones. Not forgetting the fact that I used to drink looooaaaaddddsssss of it.

Anywho! apparently both male and female have a (physical) feature (or maybe not) in opposite gender that makes them attracted to the other. Say … a guy likes a girl with thick hair. Or, a girl likes a guy with one missing front tooth, I don’t know. You tell me. haha. But you get my point don’t you?

For years…. macam paham (like real only), I’ve been asking myself, ‘If I were to evvah like a guy, which feature will I be attracted to?’

Today, I found the answer.

Selamat Hari Raya yalls!
Apologies for any harsh words or actions in any way ☺

But I have!…apparently.

Assalamualaikum errbaddeh!

I remember getting this ‘Woah! Feels like I’ve been here before!’ feeling when I entered this place but I just brushed it off.

Then, back in Singapore, while having conversations with my aunts, one of them asked, “Did you remember that we went to Egypt together years ago? Did you remember going to Makam Imam Syafie? We went there together,” she said excitedly.

That’s when the Déjà vu I had got answered.

SubhanAllah…. Dah pernah sampai sini rupanya dulu… Haha *selenge much* (SubhanAllah, how clueless was I back then to not remember being here before? Hehe)

I guess I was too young back then and my concern wasn’t on Mosques and anything to do with the deen. It was more of a ‘Where’s the malls and pyramids!?’ kinda trip for me.

Imam Syafie is one of the great Imam in Islam.

As Muslims, we believe that where we are right now is because Allah has written our names there.

Right now, I’m at Momski’s typing this, when in actual fact, my plan was to be home yesterday. But since Allah has written that I’ll be at Momski’s, something (funny) happened yesterday – will blog about this in a bit – which made me end up here for one more night.

Just thinking about the coincidence that my name is written at this place, far away from home, twice, still amazes me. Alhamdulillah ☺

ANYWHO!Makam Imam Syafie! This place is the very first stop we went to.

Right there…. When I entered this side of the mosque, the greenness of the makam made me went, ‘Woah! Feels like I’ve been here before!’

Love the marble walls 😍.

Almost chased those people away to get a clear shot. Forgot that it’s a public place >.< *smacks head*

See the post behind Shafa?

That’s the post that Imam Syafie used to rest on and sometimes give his teachings while seating against it. The post originally was not located in this building but was brought there so it’s easier for visitors to see while they’re visiting, etc.

As we left the mosque, I saw this cat sticking its head into the drainage at the ablution area.

I guess even the cat couldn’t bear the heat!
