And then there's Ombak Rindu a week after that, starring hunky Aaron. I read the book a gazillion years ago and it was very well written (can't say the same for the sequels, though). It's only fair to make it into a movie when this is the time that novelists are starting to gain more money - both from the books and movies' profits. I love Lisa Surihani's hair in the posters, but what's with Maya Karin's hijab style? My sister said she dislike the stylist's (or whomever that put the hijab on Maya) work - they could do much better.

Aaron also starred alongside Erra and Umie Aida in a theatre production based on another novel I read, Badai Semalam - this one much older than Ombak Rindu. I couldn't remember when I read this one, but I found the book amongst the stack of mom's Malay Literature books. I think she used the book when she taught the subject long ago.
But sadly I don't feel like going out to the movies these days, maybe I should just wait until my youngest brother finished sitting for SPM and celebrate his freedom together. I still think of him as the baby, despite him being the tallest in the family..and not going to school anymore.
Oh and here's a picture of my first 'daging masak asam pedas'. I know how to cook 'asam pedas' already, although I can't say it would turn out nice everytime..besides, I have only used fish before.
And I love mom's version of beef in the spicy and sour gravy. Yesterday I tried cooking it myself, without asking any instructions from mom and thought it looked like I put in a little too much tamarind juice in it. But it turned out okay. Dad said it's delicious..hehe.
