Botanophowhat?? – Perkedel Kentang (Indonesian Potato Patties)

I hope you’re all having a wonderful Easter weekend. I stuffed myself silly this Easter, as I have every Easter. I think it might just be my favourite holiday. It’s like Christmas minus the stress of picking out presents.

So, in my last post I told you how weird I am with fruits. Get this, I’m weird with vegetables too. Say whaaat??  Kinda makes sense if you think about it.

I have a liiiiiiiittle tiny bit of Botanophobia (self diagnosed of course). Basically, Botanophobia is the fear of plants. *cough*weirdo!*cough* I don’t know where it came from but I’ve never felt comfortable around plants for as long as I can remember. I don’t have any recollection of any bad experiences involving plants; The only thing I can think of is how my grandmother used to tell me, when I was a kid, to not walk on the grass barefooted because the worms might burrow their way into my feet. To this day, I still can’t go barefoot on grass.

Pet peeves – Almond Jelly

We all have pet peeves; we all do, but if you were to randomly ask me what mine were, I wouldn’t have been able to think of one to save my life.  I was, however, recently reminded of a couple of them and I thought, let’s share it with you good people out there, for absolutely no good reason. Why not?

I absolutely hate it when people misspell Voilà. The two most common examples of such blunders are Viola (I call Cello on that) and Wala. To be fair, I can’t really fault the people who think it’s wala. Singapore is predominantly Chinese and French isn’t usually spoken there. So couple that with the Chinese accent, I can see how Voilà  becomes Wala. The other is a freaking instrument though!

My other pet peeve is fruits in food. Yes, I’ve heard how apple and pork go beautifully together and I’ve heard how Duck à l’orange is simply heavenly but I am one of those stubborn cows who firmly believes that fruits should be eaten on its own or in a dessert. Please leave your pineapples out of my curry.
