Me­mori Pa­jeri Nanas

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - What To Watch -

A MAR­I­TAL con­flict be­tween ex­ec­u­tive chef Ar­mand (Alif Satar) and his in­te­rior designer wife Kayla (Tiz Zaqyah) is the main in­gre­di­ent in this tele­movie.

A sim­ple mis­un­der­stand­ing has caused Kayla to doubt her hus­band’s fi­delity. In­stead of con­fronting her hus­band about it, she de­cides to leave him.

Ar­mand be­lieves that he can win his wife back by cook­ing her din­ner ev­ery day. So, they make a pact that if she is still un­happy af­ter 30 days of din­ner with him, he will agree to a di­vorce.

Food is the main at­trac­tion on this show and it’s not your usual pasta or steak. Watch out as Ar­mand whips up scrump­tious Malay dishes – from nasi ulam raja paired with sam­bal bela­can to so­tong sum­bat.

It’s worth watch­ing just to find out what Ar­mand is go­ing to pre­pare for din­ner. The hope­less ro­man­tic in you will also be de­lighted to know that each meal pre­pared has its mean­ing and Ar­mand will ex­plain it to his wife who tries hard to main­tain an icy fa­cade.

As a bonus, or added star in­gre­di­ent if you will, both Alif and Tiz shine in their roles. Me­mori Pa­jeri Nanas is a pleas­ant show about the mem­o­ries peo­ple as­so­ciate with food.

But as life is com­pli­cated, some­times that par­tic­u­lar meal needs to come with a dash of hon­esty to work.
