8 The Popcorn Adventure!

"There's nothing to do."

When we were young, we used to play lots of indoor games with our parents, friends and relatives. From monopoly, scrabble, carrom, cards, snooker to musical chairs. It was fun and full of memorable moments.

Today, locked away in our home due to a restriction movement order, our attitude has not changed much when it comes to doing things together with our loved one/s. We always have something to do, and  here we are, hubs and I making popcorn for the first time.

BBQ Flavoured Popcorn

This RM2.50 container of popcorn has been sitting in my food cabinet for sometime. We were nervous the first few minutes it went into the wok because it seemed nothing was popping. "Why so long ah?" And then it happened..

Popcorn

Pop! Pop-pop! Except a for a few which didn't puff up at all. We separated the popped corn from the 'faulty' ones which numbered less than ten and tried again. Hangus! Sad to say, those were burnt black, haha.




The good ones had been placed into a large bowl for tossing. It was flavoured simply with Tesco BBQ seasoning powder and salt. Disappointingly flat, that's how it tasted. We were going "ugh" and laughed at our failure - nothing close to Eureka's amazing popcorn flavours.  I've stored it in an airtight container until we figure out a way to fix the taste to our liking.

Covid-19 | Day 15 Movement Control Order,  I had imagined myself catching up on all the good romantic dramas I missed. Funnily, I have yet to watch a single episode of anything because my time is occupied with house chores. It actually feels great to be this active.

  2. Good to make popcorns and have them popped!! For me, butter and salt seasoning is the best.

    1. I didn't even get that right, Rose. Perhaps I'm not adding enough butter. I'm going to try Shirley's combination of coffee and honey next. Wish me luck! ^.^

  4. That was hilarious to hear your pop corn adventure. I used to buy the ready mix in bags when I was a student in States. The people there microwave and eat them so often like we eat kachang putehs. I love to eat those sold at Garret's but they costs a BOMB!

    1. Oh yeah, Garrett's popcorn is really delicious! But I have resisted buying it since I have told myself that I can get ten good cheap banana leaf wrapped nasi lemak from the kakak at the bus station nearby, for the same amount of money ..lol
