Thanks kawan2 yang singgah:)
Not much story- the normal,cooking,cleaning&napping;) The haze was cleared for few days but came back yesterday.
So we were at home- we had a relax weekend walaupun pagi2 kena punggah kain baju kotor ke washing machine- it was not too bad- the husband sidai baju, the wife cooks, the anak2 sepah and main and the uwan berangan atas sofa- and two cats hiburkan hati.
There's some pictures to be shared here- thanks for all the encouraging words- nak suruh Tuan Bloh update ya:)
Saturday night the hb mentioned about having ramen for dinner- but the girls insisted on Italian food- as usual we parents mengalah- yesterday i made Ramen soup noodles for breakfast- i googled the recipe but turned out to cook it my way. Boil the ramen first, ketepikan, in a pot boiled water with chicken stock (in my case i just use tulang2 left over fried chicken),some garlic, soy sauce and oyster sauce plus garlic oil. Leftover fried chicken yg i simpan dalam fridge tu i slice and masuk dalam pan tanpa minyak biar cripsy, dalam soup masukkan soft tofu, dan goreng telur separately- masuk ramen dalm bowl- tuang soup, atur slice fried chicken. telur dan potong kimchi halus2- i rasa wahhh sedap you:):)

This is our breakfast on saturday- on Friday i bought Frozen bagel from Cold Storage- nampak harga macam RM12 - but bila punch RM28- tapi jimat lah lagi dari pi makan Big Breakfast kat Dome- i beli Beed strips,cheddar cheese and i ada rolled butter inside my fridge- tanya the girls nak minum apa- semua voted for hot chocolate- the bagel was really nice- so sedap with the beef and cheese.

Penat masak seharian - dinner after maghrib we bundled uwan into wheelchair and went for dinner at The Italian Kitchen Sunway Giza- food semua sedap and we had a good dinner- uwan pun suka makan Aglio Olio rupanya:)

Selain tu berehat di rumah sajalah- belek2 garden kecik kat belakang sikit;)

An Teacher Claire bought us this cute watering can- we love it:)

Si demok ni pun suka lepak kat sini;)

And Elsa lagi lah best terus check in dalam laundry drawer tak bangun sampai petang;)
Ta taaaaaa... have  anice hazy week;):)

Little Make Over and Updates.

It has been a longggg time! Assalamualaikum!

Masa mencemburui walaupun hati masih di sini:) Busy as usual- without a maid for 5 months already- the last maid that i took- turned out to be a nightmare- she left my two girls and Uwan at home with the gate open-long story- the agent wanted to replace with a new one but i dont want anyone from  his kampung anymore- no more trust- treated them well- helped them and accepted them as part of family- yet they are crude and mean.Whatever it is bersyukur pada Allah Swt- anak2 dan Uwan okay- Tia and Mia was not well and were at home at that time- Tia called me and cried- they were scared- lucky dia ada rumah boleh call me if ony Uwan at home:(

Teacher Claire is back to work- helping me with a lot of things- she helped with my laundry, attended to Uwan and take care the children&my house- as at now I am used to it-i am fully in charge of my own house- i have arranged for a cleaner to come twice a week- i cooked in the morning( woke up at 4.30 or 5.00 am now), put the food in the fridge, give Uwan bath and give her breakfast, Teacher Claire will come at 7.00- by that time, the girls will be at the breakfast table, Uwan already wangi and fresh at her resting sofa and i have  done my   bedroom.Alhamdulillah,so far okay.

So - where was i from the last post?

Yup- this photo- my little backyard that served as my laundry area,wet kitchen and also a place to rest.Many were asking- how big is the area?Tak lah besar sebab my house macam rumah double storey terrace yg lain jugak cuma a bit panjang- 22 x 100- i maximised all area- i like sitting area, nook and corner to rest.

Recently i buat some make over there- a little indoor potted garden:) after sidai kain boleh duduk minum sirap- we were inspired by little cafes at Cameron Highland during the recent visit- semua cafe ada greeneries:) Sebab berkira budget i beli garden set kat tepi sg buluh  yg cost me RM300- walaupun tak berkenan colour dlm hati nanti ada masa boleh cat balik- We called the new sitting as "Cafe Lorong"- cafe ni betul2 ujud di Cameron dekat Brinchang:)

Many were asking also kat my IG- suruh tunjuk the whole area- macam mana buat sitting area kat belakang? laundry kat mana? muat ke nak masak etc- well area memang limited sebab my extra tanah tu kat depan- but i maximised the whole area- barang2 tak boleh banyak- i ada store kecik situ- muat lah my washing machine, tempat sidai,tempat detergent,stove etc.

This is how the whole area look like- my girls suka lepak kat sini bila i masak- and since my maid tak ada my husband pun lepak sini- i masak dia sidai baju:);)

Kecik tapi masih boleh buat benda2 yg teringin- ada rezeki i nak pasang dryer- supaya tak payah sidai2 baju lagi and i will kemas lagi the whole area by putting more outdoor cabinets.

And these two love the new lepak place.

Greeneries always bring calmness and joy to me.

Today i have ada masa lapang i pun paint the garden set jadi biru:)

Added a few garden accesories to make the girls happy.

The girls called this new look " Sky Blue Cafe". Semua potted plants yg senang di jaga dan boleh di tukar2.

The girls were excited- they were thinking about opening a real cafe here:)

And i love their ideas- they are very creative and natural!

Open to pets too.

Ha ha dont forget to wash your hands okay.

Cute food for cats.

And the fury ball love to sit here too:)

Ohh forgot to mention that we have a new family member- Miss Annabelle yang macam bola berbulu.

Elsa is not so happy with her presence- we took Anna from Maklang's house- Elsa canot stand perangai Anna yg gedik and too happy:)

But Anna is too cute and adorable- siapa lah yg tak geram:)

Masa jerebu teruk we went Cameron for 4 days- we went there for resting only:) We checked in at the usual Centrury Pines at Tanah rata- we love Tanah Rata.

We had a great time there- the weather was cold and the food was good.

And I am in love with The Lord's Cafe- the scones and crepes were super duper delicious and they were cheap- scones set cost RM3.50 only.

The scone and cake here are much better than The Bharat Teas.

I came here everyday- it was lovely.The shop is above MaryBrown at Tanah rata- same row with Starbucks.There's a stairs outside MaryBrown and the shop is on the first floor.

What's the latest- well the girls had their concert for the second year- they played as village fairies in "Sleeping Beauty"

Teacher Claire and her girls.

And Alhamdulillah Uwan is okay too- i took her to Absolute Thai today- after that we stopped at Baskin Robbins for ice cream.

Alhamdulillah-That's all folks- got to go to bed now- Ta taaa:)Until next time- which i dont know when:)

I have some time tonight:)

Banyak cerita but i cut it short- sharing some happy and blessed moments through my pictures.

Setiap yang dikurniakan Allah swt itu sangat bernilai,penat melayan hari ini menjadi emas suatu ketika bila tiada lagi yang hendak di layan, keluhan banyak tanggungjawab hari ini menjadi intan di hari depan bila tanggungjawab telah padam. 

Alhamdulillah terhutang budi pada readers yang membantu mencari kan maid- ada rezeki akak dan Uwan Rohaiza, Jazakallah. Perjalanan dengan yg baru masih jauh- but i dont want to think  too much- she looks okay right now- yang lain berserah pada Allah Swt sahaja.Dah ambik maid baru maid lama pun balik- drama sinetron- penuh air mata- berebut nak bekerja-begitulah selalunya when you have something you tak really appreciate it- you nampak rumput ditempat lain lebih hijau- anyway bukan hanya yang buruk sahaja dari dia- sudah 9 tahun bersama banyak budinya pada saya, dan begitulah saya pada dia katanya- tak habis dia mengucapkan terima kasih- sedih dan berharap saya mengekalkan dia dan send away the new one- but i cant do that- everybody keep telling me to be strict- dont bother about her anymore- selain hati yang terluka sifat pertama sebagai manusia tak dapat saya padam- saya carikan dia tempat lain yang saya tahu latarbelakangnya- the new majikan is my family-semoga kembalinya dia ke sini tidak sia2.Alhamdulillah semuanya berakhir dengan baik setakat ini- yg lainnya berdoalah kita setiap hari kerana pergorbanan wang ringgit dan perasan ini adalah untuk yang syurga dibawah telapak kakinya- Moga Allah Swt merahmatinya.

Life without maid for nearly 2 months was not that bad- after few weeks we get used to it, the kids know their roles and the husband pun okay.The only thing was: we cannot have Uwan at our house everyday- i brought her back during weekend and sent her back to my sisters house on Monday morning. I looked at Uwan and i felt sad,  she missed my house, my girls and  my cooking- but she is so nice- tak komplen,tak mintak itu dan ini, setiap pagi isnin bila menghantar dia ke rumah my sister yang di risaukan nya siapa ada di rumah nak menunggu my children- at 92 yr old she is not selfish or self centred- dalam keadaan yang sering lupa- Allah Swt tidak mengambil perasaan kasih sayang dari dia- banyak kita perlu belajar dari nya kan- kita yang masih muda dan berupaya selalu saja mementingkan diri,risau tidak dapat menikmati hidup sepenuhnya- kita mahu banyak menerima tetapi lupa adakah kita telah banyak memberi.

Banyak Cik Seri Siantan bercerita:)

Life without maid? we kinda enjoying it:)I created a small garden at the back so that i feel happy doing the laundry:)

Dapur pun bukan besar- under control masa tak ada maid- tetapi secara jujurnya i am bad at the laundry department:) mop dan vacuum pun penat jugak;)

Weekend we will bring uwan back.

One particular weekend tu bawak balik dan petang hujan sangat lebat- the cucu lari menyorok bawah ketiak- i feel so blessed to cook in the kitchen and i have her near to me:)

Hujan sangat lebat masa tu hingga tak berani nak ke wet kitchen di belakang.Sangat teringat masa kecik takut guruh dan petir dan sentiasa mencari ibu.

This girl enjoy main masak2:)

Goreng pisang tanduk buat uwan.

Tea and slumber party with uwan.

Pelangi ada dengan izinNya.

Bila ada uwan excited nak buat rendang.

Kita pun masak rendang:)

These two sahabat- ceritanya budi baik dibawa hingga ke mati begitulah kami:) Muncul malam hari dua orang ni bawak buah2an nak jumpa Uwan tapi masa ni Uwan dah balik rumah my sister.

Tips menyediakan dinner dengan cepat dan ringkas kalau ada tetamu dan tiada pembantu:) sediakan yang ringkas tapi menarik- salad telur- cepat dan membuka selera.

Satu lauk utama.

Dan yg ringkas pembuka selera.

Then few days after that Kak Ikin came- pun Uwan masih belum balik:( But the girls had fun with kak Ikin's baby-memang Love is in the air.

me and ikin love each other- Alhamdulillah our kids can feel it and the love comes naturally.

I made Mee hailam hokien style for ikin- Alhamdulillah memang favourite family.

Yang berminat mencuba- kelainan mee hailam ni terletak pada air rebusan daging- tak sia2 berdiri tak malu di tepi dapur kedai mee hailam pasar Pilah yang memang sangat sedap dulu2 tu- sekarang tuan punya kedai telah pun meninggal dunia dan bila rindu mee hailamnya saya dah boleh buat sendiri. Kelainannya- guna stock daging- kalau nak buat mee hailam esok atau petang hari, pagi2 kita dah kena rebus daging yang bercampur lemak dan tulang- biar daging betul2 lembut dan kuah jadi sedikit- caranya membuatnya sangat ringkas- untuk makan 4- 6 org ketuk 5 biji bawang putih, tumis hingga kuning sedikit, masukkan sawi hingga layu, tambah fish ball/cake, masukkan  oyster sauce 3 sudu besar ,air rebusan daging bersama daging yang telah dihiris, kicap karamel(kicap pekat) satu sudu, kicap masin biasa 2 sudu (semua sukatan kicap dan oyster sauce agak2 mengikut kesesuaian selera masing2),biar mendidih, tambah garam kalau perlu,masukkan mee,dan masukkan air yang telah di kacau dengan tepung ubi kayu sedikit- kacau2 dan angkat.

This evening- i did some gardening.

Actually lebih kepada mengajar maid baru- she was a rubber tapper from Jambi- never been to Malaysia before- she can't really relate as to why we need to keep the house clean all the time, why there's so many tables and chairs in the house, why do i have plates on my wall???why i have so many books? she never sleep on the bed before, eat only nasi sejuk with kuah in the morning and have been missing her 13 yr old girl and 6 yr old son badly- but she is doing fine so far sebab her attitude is okay- willing to learn and tak malas- i told her why we need to clean the bathroom everyday,why we need to have flowers in the garden-  i cant stop her from missing her children- because i dont think i can go through that- people said i am soft- these maids are all tricky- but i dont want to stop being a human being in order to have my interest protected- the risk is there and to Allah Swt i berserah. 

Banyak sangat fikir hari ni i ingat esok 31st August hence i made birthday cake for the Merdeka Boy in the house.

Merdeka Boy pun naughty dia biar jer i buat cake and dia tiup lilin then baru dia cakap hari ni baru 29th!

These two grow too fast- they have started reading books without picture already:):)-Enid Blyton.

Happy long weekend everybody- lets enjoy our precious time before our office call us back on Tuesday!

And Happy Merdeka day!- Kuning, Merah,Hijau atau apa pun warna yang menyelubungi- selalu ingat Allah Swt memberi terlalu banyak rahmat di bumi bertuah ini- berdoa sentiasa supaya rasa keinsafan, kemanusiaan, keadilan itu hadir dalam setiap naluri kita di bumi ini.Moga Allah Swt memelihara kita.
