Quick and Dirty Roast Lamb...

The last time I posted a recipe was over six months ago. Thought I'd do one today for a change :)

  • Start with a nice cut: I always go for the shoulder cut these days cos I find it way tastier and easier to carve. Plus its slightly cheaper than lamb leg which is overrated if u ask me :)
  • Use simple ingredients: Lamb is such a flavorful meat u dont really need to use fancy marinades and spices etc. Best fren nya sira, black pepper, garlic, rosemary, and thyme. Thats it. Oh, and olive oil of course to bring it all together!
  • Do a Norman Bates: Stab the hunk of meat all over with a good size knife
  • Stick it in... all the way in: Just sumbat the holes we just made with the garlic.. skin on and everything... it'll taste fricken beautiful later trust me!
  • Season well: Do the Saxa Salt Cha cha, the Black Peppa Rhumba, then sprinkle dem erbs, and top it off wit some olive oil to bring all together
  • Make the bed: Since this is a roast, we need to make sure the hot air circulates around the lamb. Mun inda we will have half roast half boiled lamb. I know I should probably use a rack, but using the potatoes and carrots makes for a way tastier gravy later... mmmm
  • Bring on the heat: Chuck the lamb in the pre-heated oven at about 170 degrees Celsius for about 3 hours
  • Bob's yer uncle: There ya have it... a beautiful succulent lamb roast with a beautiful gravy! This goes really well with either pita bread or steamed white rice and a glass of the good stuff... Try it yerself!

Migration Complete...

If you recall, sometime ago, I was toying with the idea of migrating to the wordpress platform. Today, that idea becomes a reality. The migration to wordpress is complete and all posts from today onwards will be at Do bear with me for the next couple of weeks while I figure out the ins and outs of wordpress hehe.

This site will remain visible for archive purposes. Thank you and see you over at the new pad!


... In the past, hadrah was only performed during weddings, but now it is performed in open events, to greet honoured guests and more significantly to signal the arrival of His Majesty in various events...

... Brunei youths nowadays have done well in preserving the heritage and have even enhanced it. Back then, competition involved only beating of drums and chanting. But now performances are choreographed to make it more attractive and interesting...

... hadrah could be further promoted in Brunei if there is a national association of hadrah set up. "We have a national team for silat and gasing (top spinning), but not for hadrah. We cannot just rely on mukim and schools to promote the activity, it has to be done at a national level...
