2 | Nasi Ayam Penyet Dreams

Not a great day.


I took one hour at a time (edit: made it!)


I saw an improvement today since I took the time to recover instead of just working through it, like the unhealthy person I used to be.


For my afternoon distraction, I watched Plan B (2021) with some air-fried fries (pls don’t). Sunny and Lupe are adorable ~


It continues to perplex me that women and people who menstruate don’t have complete control over our bodies. I should be able to decide what I allow to grow inside me – that’s why “fuck cancer” is a saying.


Daydreamed about Nasi Ayam Penyet too. I’ve been eyeing her recipe for a while now:




Che Nom has this YouTube channel and a blog that make their way into my dreams; dreams about a pantry fully-stocked with all the Malay/SEAsian ingredients.


So tomorrow I’ll change into outside clothes, go outside, look for them in my local SEAsian supermarket. I really want to be friends with the lady who runs the place but I can’t find my Italian words when I’m there.


I’ll try again tomorrow. In the meantime, look at Che Nom’s Nasi Lemak Bungkus:



I hope you laughed and learned and have a good one out there!
