by the way…
the bling bling shoes in the last week post, isn't mine.
I can't walk in those…
I was MIA last week. Had a very good reason for missing out on a post… I was busy playing host to my nephew and wife.
They were supposed to go to the park on their own, however with last minute change of plan, we ended up at the park too.
I've been to the park umpteen times, but this time I went prepared… packed my baby aNDy (aNDy is my camera if you are wondering…;P), and happy with the outcome. Click on my Flickr icon (button on the right...up there) to view few more photos.
But the only thing I did not prepare…was our lunch
If I knew that we were going to tag along, I would have pack these Roti John….
Give me a shout or a if you remember Roti John?
Roti means Bread in Malay and Hindi
Street food made famous in the eighties… Someone came up with the idea of having mincemeat mix with egg, spread on bread and cook on the hot griddle or skillet.
How the name 'Roti John' came about… your guess is as good as mine. Perhaps Mr Google will gladly search and tell you.
...when I first introduced Roti John to D and E, they gave me the 'What is my mom talking about' look!
Once bitten, forever smitten with Roti John, and they are happy to have it for dinner
