of internet being a bitch and a fish recipe

I've been wanting to update my blog for days but the internet is being a bitch, again! I really don't know what is wrong, it may be the connection so I called TM's Customer Service on thursday. After complaining about the internet problem and asking what causes it, the female operator told me that my internet connection is being barred. After checking the landline account, she then again told me that there is no problem with overdue payment because the bill has been paid. In my mind I was like '.. fuck yeah we already paid the bill. Why would I call to complain if the bill hasn't been paid? Duh!' but I was being as polite as her so I just keep that thought to myself. Her solution was to fail a report to *blank* department ( I can't actually recall which department that she mentioned cos she talks to fast albeit the semenanjung slang) and the internet connection will be okay by friday but the promise is a lie, A BIG FAT one either! In case you are wondering how I posted this post up, well, I have to follow several steps.

Firstly, turn on the modem and wait for all the lights to be stable then log in to my blogger and click on the 'new post' as quickly as I can before the 'internet' light dies. Secondly, type everything that I want. Thirdly and the last step, I have to redo the first step so that I could click on the 'publish post'. It annoys me so much that the first thing that I would do tomorrow is to fail another complain but this time, I AM NOT GOING TO TALK NICE! 

Moving on. I didn't go anywhere the rest of the day. With the very hot weather, I prefer staying in rather than go out and sweat like a pig. I spent my afternoon being a diligent wife and prepare lunch. I cooked up a special dish for the family and it is Fried Fish with Sweet Yellow Beans sauce. It's really easy to do, I'm not even joking.

Prep time: 3-5 minutes ( clean and cut the fish into cutlets, peel and chop onion)
Cooking time: Less than 20 minutes
Serves for 5 people

The ingredients:

5 cutlets of a medium size Grouper/ Ikan Kerapu ( any types of fish can also be used)
2 big tbsp Sweet Yellow Bean ( I used Yeo's Sweet Yellow Bean)
1 chopped Onion
1 cup Water
3 tbsp Cornstarch and Water mixture 
Salt, Pepper and Sugar to taste


1. Season the fish cutlets with Salt and Pepper then deep fry the fish until golden brown.
2. After frying the fish, transfer the oil and leave some for stir frying the sauce.
3. Stir fry the onion until soft and fragrant. Add in Sweet Yellow Bean and water, stir.
4. Add salt, pepper and sugar to taste. Add in the cornstarch and water mixture and wait until the sauce thickens. Pour the sauce onto the fried fish cutlets and serve!

This is how the dish looks like :)

Although I don't eat fish, I know the dish is delicious cos my family enjoyed it very much. Now you know that I actually love cooking! Please do give it a try! :D

p/s: As I've mentioned earlier that I've been wanting to update my blog, I actually wanted to share about how I spend my Valentine's Day with Joel but I will do that on the next post.

Until next post,
