Lowering down the curtain with Lo' lit

Over a steaming spread of this lo' lit goodness, I laid back and surrender myself to a feel of a zen-like stillness while pondering upon my colorful life in the past years. The overwhelming dose of nostalgia over the many ups and downs of my life journey, has led me to believe that live has many things to offer and full of surprises.

These metamorphosis phase of life, just like lo' lit is another transformation from a natural God send produces and his wonderful creations into a kaleidoscope of edible sensation for his loyal disciples and the one who believe that in order to survive, we have to eat...of course.

Now, if you ask me how these brilliantly transformation takes place, from the basic ingredient into this C4-like wonder, I wouldn't know and not sure myself. The experience has long gone, when I was still a small kid, during a rice harvesting season in Kg. Sg. Derhaka. My late grandmother was the one who dealt with this heavenly crop while me, who was just contemplating to melt everything she generously invented into my eager mouth. For the uninitiated who has been asking this lo' lit recipe, I have to excuse myself and let the others who have a better memory and wisdom to give the answer. And yes, I don't eat recipe, I eat anything that materialized from the good culinary practices. Probably that is the one thing I need to learn this new year. Digesting all the good recipes.

For all intents and purposes, again I am in the center of the universe. My life will seamlessly continue to evolve in harmony with the morphing and ever-changing habitat, blend in well with the natural ecosystem and change to the tune of my insane surrounding. My epic life journey once again begins. Lets start our first step with bismillah and pray to Allah that the days to come will be full of joy and laughter, surrounded with the ones that we loved dearly and most of all, showered with all the mercy and love by the ONE.

Have a great and prosperous year ahead guys!

Sir Pök Déng said...

Dokter Seng,

The wajik-looking lo' lit must have been a blast in your childhood memories, just like the tenderness of qasidoh (or hasidoh) dough in mine!

Wish you happy new year 2010.

DrSam said...

CatlinaFly,
Salam. Semoga tahun mendatang memberi kebahagian yang lebih kepada Catlina, Fly dan baby Ein.

Mia's Mom,
Salam sis. Thank you for the wish. That lo' lit summarized all the beautiful effort and intricate crafmanship by our ancestors - much better taste than the resolution and the talk-cock at the COP15 :)

Sir Pok Deng,
Actually and to be frank to you sir, I was browsing for the 'wajik' when I saw this suspicious looking 'lo' lit' lying helplessly on a table at Pasar Kedai Buloh.

Haven't tasted qasidoh for ages. Now you're making my saliva dripping.

Have a blasting year ahead sir!

tikno said...

Kuih lo' lit makanan tadisional Ganu atau mungkin tempat-tempat lain yang sewaktu dengannya menanam padi. Biasanya banyak kedapatan apabila tiba musim menuai, dimana salah satu aktiviti ialah memasak lo' lit daripada padi yang baru dituai.

Happy New Year Hliza!

Happy New Year to you too.

besi,
salam melangkah ke tahun baru dengan semangat yang diperbaharui.

Tie,
bab resipi ni memang saya kalah sikit. Tapi kalau ikutkan, lo' lit sejati dan original yang arwah atuk saya buat, teksturnya lagi halus dan rasanya ahh...heavenly!


Oldstock,
Happy prosperous year to you too!

DrSam said...

patungcendana,
Selamat Tahun Baru. Cerita yang mana satu. Memang ketinggalan zaman betul kita nih.

aShaBuLz,
Thanks for the good wishes. Wishing you the same.

@xim,
Salam @xim. Happy New Year to you too.

DrSam said...

Naddiea,
Kat Pasar Payang ada juga ke? Selalu pergi tapi tak perasan pula ada kat situ. Seberang Takir pun bukannya jauh sangat. Naik bot sampailah ke lo' lit tu.

Perantausepi1306,
Yang ori punya memang manis. Tapi tak lah semanis nasi manis. Happy New year to you too. Have a great year ahead.

Meen Eunos,
Salam Meen. Tahun dah berganti tahun, namun hajat mengeteh masih tak kesampaian. Salam Tahun Baru Meen.

catz,
Salam Tahun Baru catz. Memang sah manis dan sah sedap (bagi yang suka manis)

aliff muhammad,
salam. memang nampak macam wajik, tapi bukan. kena gi Ganu dan cuba nih.


cendawanintim,
kenangan menusuk kalbu. Semoga kehadiran sicomel menjadi pemanis untuk mengharungi hari-hari mendatang.

JohnJenin,
Selamat segalanya Pakcik...

Maya,
Ni bahasa gapo ni sis? Happy New year to you. Cerita terhangat dah lepas, sekarang dah jadi hangat-hangat tahi ayam je. The whole clan is waiting and anticipating for the death sentence perhaps. Penantian itu suatu penyiksaan...

mizzyN said...

my mum makes one kind of this rice dish - we call it kuih kepal because it can be molded into shapes.
