Sunday Night Theme: Phrata & Curry Night

Every Sunday night, a group of us get together to have dinner, and when we do, we try and cook a themed dinner just so we get to eat a variety of food. This week was Phrata and Curry Night, or better known to Malaysians as Roti Canai night (yea, i know, I don’t know when did I start to talk like a Singaporean!). We’ve done this theme before but it was a rerun special because it was Lisa’s ‘surprise’ birthday party. I say it in inverted commas because someone in our group keeps letting the cat out of the bag…

We brought Vegetable Curry (not made from scratch unfortunately!), we didn’t really have the time. So we cheated a little by using Tean’s Gourmet Vegetable Curry paste – they are an AWESOME brand of asian sauces and we keep buying them because they are the closest to the real thing back home. We’ve tried the Prawn Mee and Curry Laksa – and its yummmm.


So with this dish, all Sammy did was throw in the vegetables (mixture of cabbage, lady fingers, brinjal, carrot etc), a few curry leaves and the paste – and leave it to boil – and voila!

There were other curries that night as well – Green curry, chicken curry and Esthey’s AWESOME rendang. From memory, she used a packet sauce as well, but she cooked it in a pressure cooker – and it was soooo tender and flavoursome! Ben & Lindz bought Garlic Naan and Butter Chicken from Gopi Curry Leaf  (we found out about Gopi through TFP, and didn’t realize such a great eatery was so close to us! )Plus we did fry up a packet of Phratas (those that you get in the frozen aisle of your local oriental shop). Needless to say there was a lot of food that night!

This was my plate of food – and yes, I was greedy, but the food was good! I had a bit of everything…and went back to the Garlic Naan for seconds…and thirds…

Just something random but we were drinking Cruisers that night, and guess what we found?

(You probably can’t see it that clearly, but it reads “What was Lindsay Lohan’s first movie?” If you were born in my generation you would probably know its The Parent Trap.) Since when did they have Odd Spots on Cruiser bottle caps?? Brings back images of Libra pads and the little “aha” moments in the toilet…but I digress.. 😛

We bought a demanded requested cake from Lisa from Francois (cake shop in Leederville), the Chocolate Truffle Cake. Such a beautifully decorated cake! If only I had the patience!! It is, I think,  one of the best chocolate mousse cakes I’ve tasted – It has 3 layers – chocolate mousse, covered by a layer of chocolate fudge on top of a layer of chocolate filled pralines. I like the different textures of the cake, from the crunch of the pralines and the richness and smoothness of the mousse – if only it wasn’t too rich I could have eaten more!

It was a great night, was stuffed to the brim, as like all our Sunday Night Themes 🙂 But it was special because it was Lisa’s birthday (Happy Birthday SHISTA!!)…hope you had a great day Lisa, and even though our surprises didn’t really turn out like we planned, it was fun and we hope you liked it! And big shout out to Esthey for organizing and running around and doing everything!! 🙂

San Churro Leederville (Takeaway)


We have classes on Tuesday nights right in the middle of Leederville. There are so many restaurants etc there that we’ve decided to try a new restaurant when we can – but that night, I was just craving for something sweet and delicious.

In between learning about the importance of apologetics and the most asked questions about Christianity, me and hubby ducked out to get a coffee from San Churros which was just around the corner.

I ordered my usual – Hot and Cold – and hubby the Spanish mocha, to takeaway. I thought we wouldn’t get back in time (we had a 30 min break) but service was quick and our drinks were made in about 5 mins.

I love the hot and cold – it has delicious thick hot chocolate and topped with vanilla ice cream. The barista gave me a spoon for the ice cream but i much prefer to let the ice cream melt and drink it together. Hence the name right?! It was perfect and it hit the spot – just what i needed from a long day of work.

Hubby said that his mocha was good too, it was thick and with the right amount of coffee and chocolate 🙂  I envision that we will definitely be making more coffee breaks on class nights!
