Thumbs Down For Secret Recipe

I had lunch at a place called Secret Recipe 4-5 days ago. Comfortable but pricey. Cakes are ok but the meals? Um, I think my cooking taste better. Don't get me wrong, I am not a good cook. They are just worse than me. I had grilled fish with butter sauce or something to that effect. ALL their fish recipes use cheap (before it reaches Secret Recipe that is), lousy-tasting dory fish. I know white fish, red fish, tenggiri, kerapu, bawal, pari...but what on earth is a dory fish. It's everywhere in the supermarket minus head, tail and bones so it is unidentifiable. I do know that it doesn't taste good. I usually try to give thanks for everything but this dory fish meal has given me a bad case of diarrhoea. Did they cook a fly with it or what? I had to take 2 days off from work because the best toilet in the world is still the toilet in your home. The toilet at my workplace reminds me of my grandmother's toilet -- wooden, non-flushable (careful, careful, flushing will make things float) and on rainy days it is visited by frogs and snakes. Snakes I have not seen but a black frog jumped out right after I used the toilet one rainy morning. I jumped and shrieked and dislodged the sink all at once.

I felt better today so I decided to bring the dogs for a walk. 3 pm, I told myself. And I prayed for dark, grey clouds to block off the sun. No one will be jogging/walking at such an hour. Not even stray dogs. I can let Wawa run free and wild. Coco can sniff, schnoofle (?) and furtle (?) for as long as she likes. My prayer was answered with an extra blessing. It rained as soon as we reached home. What better way to cool off!

Glad you are feeling better now Auntie Tooki - stay away from that Dory fish OK!?

Frogs in the toilet......my mum would freak. She saw frogs in toilets and showers when she toured through Northern Australia in the tropical areas......ooohhh she had to get tough quick!

Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

Oh no, frogs in the toilet - that would make you shriek! Pleased to hear you're feeling better now - no more meals at Secret Recipe I think. Love from Magic x
