Ayam Goreng Dapur Kayu

I think I've mentioned before that I really like simple tasty food like plain rice served with fried fish and cili potong, kuah gulai.
Dapur Kayu is one of those places that serves simple dishes. Fried chicken - using old school traditional firewood stove - served with acar timun and nenas, sambal tumis, kuah asam pedas and curry. 
Just a normal ordinary gerai but must try.

This gem is located at Jalan Petaling, Kawasan Perindustrian Tampoi. Google says it is open daily 7.30am to 3.30pm but there were a few times we drove by on Sundays but it was closed.


Hi. I really miss this bunch, like, a lot. Pictures were taken at Sasa's wedding in December 2017. Missing, Nuar, Ayam, Nana + Dyan. That was almost 8 months ago. Adulting is cray cray.

Embracing change and new beginnings

Career change. Not mine but Halim's.
For years I've been telling him, give up the sale & marketing life. Give up the bankers life. Try something else, yada yada yada. But he was young and he wants to have fun, don't want to leave because... friends. He was such a boy.

I cried, a lot. I was afraid. And then I persevered. We persevered.

Anyway, fast forward November, our baby was 4 months old, he applied for a new job. Not a banker. Not gonna have to sell anything or market shit and stuff. Did the online exam, got the job interview in February.
Picture is of him on his way to the interview.
Who knew, two months later, we received the good news. He got the job. Out of hundred thousands of ap…


These past 4 weeks has been very challenging. Mondays were clinic-day.
1st week - fever/cough 2nd week - diarrhea 3rd week - hives 4th week - rapid breathing (asthma?) which turned out to be pneumonia.
Kasihan my baby girl. We ended up at Hospital Sultan Ismail for 3 nights and 3 days.
Halim wanted to transfer Aminah to a private hospital because HSI was overoccupied, lagipun, bila lagi nak guna medical card right? but our preferred hospital was full and Aminah was depending on oxygen supply for the first two nights she was admitted so we don't want to take the risk of taking her off oxygen for few hours.
Honestly, HSI was good. We were satisfied with the service provided. And for RM11.00, I have no complains.
She's home now and healthy. No wheezing or coughing today, Alhamdulillah. Semoga anak mommy stay healthy inshaAllah.
ps. Please spare a prayer for my late grandmother. She passed away this morning due to breathing difficulties. She's been having asthma attacks for a…
