Memori Pajeri Nanas
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.
