Homemade Fusilli with Brinjal & Capsicum in Simple Tomato Sauce
A ticket to JB - RM 7.50
A phone call - RM 0.30
A plate of homemade pasta - Priceless
Sounds familiar? Haha, yup. The time spent with my brother in his humble-rented apartment with three handsome-bachelor residents. It was indeed priceless. *wink*
I was referring to the time spent with my brother as priceless, What are you thinking ??? Hah. It was a surprise visit to my brother.
It wasn't meant to be a visit.
Actually i was on my way back to Singapore while transiting at JB. Being too bored, i decided to give a call to my beloved brother in JB to tease & tempt him of all the good food i had at home, including "telling" him i "ta bao"=packed homecooked food from home to bring back to Sg. He, happily mistaken me sending homecook food for him. It was a bit complicated and I also didn't know how i ended being fetched by him at Larkin & the next thing i know i was already at his rented apartment, 1km away from Larkin. *my bro kept emphasized "my place is only 1KM away from larkin"*
Homecooked pasta was what he managed to whip up to welcome my first visit to his place.
My brother dotes on me a lot. All the little gestures showed it all.
Capsicum, brinjal & a handful of fusilli were all he had. Added with lots of love of a brother for extra flavour.
A bowl of Campbell Soup was all I can offer, using whatever that was leftover.
Mum's cooking is still the best! "Stainless-steel Pot Chicken" is what I meant. Well-marinated and full of flavour. Having it for 3 meals in 3 days was not bored at all.
At the end of the day, my brother was robbed by his little sister of his starbucks voucher.
It will be our next date. I promise...... together with mum & dad, hopefully...
