Breakfast on the "flip" side on Tuesday

Ask any Singaporean or Malaysian about roti pratha and
they'll agree with you that it's one favourite
food taken either at breakfast or lunch..

this crispy pancake is made by flipping it and thinning out the pastry
( go to the You Tube link below to watch how it's being made)


and grilled on a flat pan..
it can be eaten either with hot curry or just sugar..
we love ours with spicy curry,

and eating pratha is not the same without teh tarik (in Malay) which means
"pulled tea".
watch how pulled tea is made in this video...

what are you having for tea today?

and I thank you!!!

"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit."

Albert Schweitzer, 1875 - 1965

Happy PPF and have a lovely weekend!!

Happy PPF!!!

I've been away for the past week and I will share more about it later..
But today is Friday and I'm sharing this painting...completed a while back

with Acrylics, watercolor inks, transfers and collage on canvas

I've always had a challenge with tranfers but this turned out right... :))
I used Caulk for this transfer..

I'll leave you with a quote from Rumi...
“Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

happy Friday!!
