Pucuk Paku

It has been few days i'm not updating this blog. Actually i'm quite bz when my mother in law came to stay at our house. She came last saturday & went back on thursday. My hubby had to stay at banting site, so i've to entertain my MIL alone. Plus on wednesday morning, i had a very bad fever. I had to take mc bcoz' i can't get up. Luckily my hubby was on leave that day. My body shivered, my head spinned, my throat sore. I vomitted that morning. The doc said my body temperature was very high. Then on thursday morning after we sent my MIL to the bus station, my right leg hurt. I can't walk properly until today. Then yesterday, my throat hurt very badly. I can't swallow. When i coughed, it terribly hurt. Since my assistant is on leave today, i've to come the office.
Enough with my fever. Back to cooking. My hubby bought pucuk paku & budu during my MIL stay bcoz' both of them are my MIL's fav. I cooked sayur lemak pucuk paku trganu style during her stay. She steam kangkung & ate it with budu. My MIL is a little bit picky with food bcoz' she didn't eat chicken & meat. & a few days ago, we found out that she's allergic with the prawn. Actually we took her the hospital on the same day i went to see the doc bcoz' she said her body itching & her fingers swollen.
After few days i didn't eat rice, today i ransack my freeze & i found the leftovers of pucuk paku. & then i remember kak liza' recipe of pucuk paku goreng budu. Luckily the budu is still in my freeze. I only used pucuk paku bcoz' i've no long beans.
