Simple Pleasures

Sometimes, the simplest pleasures in life can be so darn satisfying. Today's dinner consisted of just sweet potatoes for wifey and yummy tapioca for me and they tasted absolutely delicious.


I haven't eaten tapioca for years and back when I was a wee young, ravishingly handsome (hahaha ... perasan betul!) lad, my dearly departed grandma used to make them specially for me. I was a spoilt grandma's boy so I got to eat whatever I wanted anytime and tapioca was one of them.

I could just sit there and eat the whole darned pot of boiled tapioca by myself. Depending on my mood for the day, I'd either sprinkle sugar on them or just eat them plain. I simply loved the stuff.

Today, wifey and me saw some being sold at Empire Shopping Gallery and I got a whole bag full, well more like four pieces la and insisted on her preparing it for me the moment we came home. And when she told me it was done, I was like a little boy running out to get my plate, plonked a whole piece on it, made a mug of coffee which it goes absolutely well with and was happily chomping on it.

Ahhh ... it was simply delicious and brought back sweet memories of my younger days as a spoilt brat ... LOL!

    My late grandma used to boil them and we kids used to enjoy it on our school break. ^^ With a cup of black, black coffee. Yummy!
