Pray,Eat,Love - for beloved,signed mama 2012.

Salam to All.2012 is here and we are stilled here..Alhamdulillah is the only word that can describe my feeling,it is very deep that i feel embarrassed to ask for more. So i start my new year with syukur..resolution?not much actually,to a better hamba and person,to give more happiness to people around me.The rest i keep close to my heart,will be said in 5 times a day..InsyAllah.

How's everybody? Thank You very much for all the lovely wishes and wonderful doas.I am very happy that i got to know many lovely people here:) 2012, i am still writing,nothing much..just my pray,eat and love..they are for Tia Khadeja and Mia Ayesha but "this book" of mine welcome warm hearts out there;) I can see some new readers as far as Peru..Salam Ukhwah:) We shall chat at the bottom of this entry:)

Forever my interest is always - Pray - they are my wishes,they are my syukur,  Eat- i love cooking,it brings happiness to me and people around me, Love - I am embraced by love and i shall give nothing but love:):)For me a New year; there's  no booking into fancy hotel to watch fireworks,no special dinner outside..it was just the usual things as these usual things brought so much happiness..i have my sky filled with fireworks every nites..it comes from hearts, laughters, smiles,hugs and kisses.(p.s- Sorry Julia Roberts if i overshadowed your movie..heee..heee)




Your are my fireworks,papa and uwan too:):)


I am continuosly reminded of the life circle by having these two generations around me.


Saturday we went to Lake Garden again..good walk for everybody.


Heart and soul yang bau busuk and masam:)


Took uwan for a walk in Herb Garden..she kenal banyak plants kat sini.



Good lesson for tia mia too, macam centipede plant ni (pokok lipan) ..they really look like lipan kan.


Evening we went out to look for Ribbon&Heart house...first thought nak ajak papa do the DIY..but a bit leceh..so we decided to buy the house but DIY the petting area.


We found one that we like,this is the last piece,dah tanggal2 cat pun,kalau nak cat baru,kena tunngu few days..so we just bawak balik macam ni..later i will do give new coat of paint.


We can ask the shop to custom made any pet house,like maklang's one in the picture,that is her chicken coop,she asked the shop to make according to her design.


Kemas sikit2 the area,me and hb spent few hours jugak building this "petting farm"..so syok it living up my childhood dream.


Ada yang tanya tak susah ke bela rabbit ni..macam mana kalau nak jalan ke apa? Well having a pet is a hobby,kalau hobby tu memang kena lah spent masa,kadang2 duit dan sebagainya but hobby is living out your passion,if you are passionate about something tak lah jadi susah,a little bit of hardship will bring so much joy:):)




The two are really happy..bangun pagi terus masuk kat petting area ni;):)


I promised some readers to give recipe on Cantonese noodles,this morning i had some time to do it..so here is the step by step methods.You need kicap masin,sos tiram,kicap cair,sesame seed oil and chicken cube.Unfortunately i tak adalah sukatan berapa sudu setiap satu bahan tu because i jenis campak ajar semua..so rasa2 dan agak2 lah ya..jangan terlebih,kalau kurang boleh tambah.


Also you need dried yee mee,sawi,carrot,bawang putih,merah,halia,semua hiris halus,fish sales,prawn and corn flour.



potong sawi,slice the carrot dan fish cake thinly.



Before you start cooking the gravy,get ready the yee mee in the plate.


Fry your onion,garlic and ginger until slightly brown.


Bring in your fish cake.


Put in batang sawi first so that it can cook well.


Then add about 1 tablespoon of kicap masin,sos tiram,kicap fair,half of chicken cube and sesame seed oil..kacau and rasa the gravy..if  kurang masin you may add salt.


Add in your veges.



Add in the corn flour which already been mixed with water.


Add your prawn last to keep the sweetnest..cook for about 5 - 6 mins,add a lil bit of water if too thick..it should not be too thick,must be slightly runny.


Finally pour on the noodles.


Tadaaaa..yummy cantonese noodles..bring outside in your garden for a nice alfresco breakie.


So hb..sedap tak? well your plate tells everything ya:):)


The girls were really happy..after petting the rabbits they main masak2 pulak.


To those interested to buy the toy cooking set from ikea..you have to be rajin a bit lah..sebab lepas they main kita kenalah basuh sebelum simpan:):)



After breakfast i had a very tiring cleaning session in the garden,i cleaned the surrounding area at rabbit house,took out the old plants and pots,cut the branches,weed the grass,spruce the flowers etc etc..we shifted duty today while i was doing all those hb gave bath to the girls,he put the small pool in the room and let the girls main2,he made milk,dressed them up..where was our maid? she cleaned the area outside our gate;)..so after the cleaning,we went out for lunch and also to get few things from hardware shop..after that we  went to tutti-frutti and i got us a bucket of RM29.40 yoghurt:):)



They way to enjoy it don't put too much toppings..we enjoy just the ice cream and strawberry.


Balik ajer..tadaaaa.. i gave the house a new coat of paint..i spray ajer,more convenient.



Nice isn;t it..they got a new wooden ladder too..i bought from the pet shop.



This cute bird nest i got from the shop..after dah puas mintak tambah kurangkan harga..tak dapat banyak i pun mintak this birdnest:)



Hullooooo..who's that inside?


Red eyed Heart:)


Papa pun dah kemaskan dan tighten the net by putting screw metal into the ground.The reason why kita tak nak permanent fixture is if at anytime we want to dismantle it we can do so.


So itu lah project new year ni..giving happiness to living things;)


Bunga2 pun dah di baja and di gemburkan.hope to get few more pots from nursery tomorrow.




While i buat kerja the girls non stop meloncat sana sini..it was a hot day today so i cut for them few oranges..it is their favorite.


Main rabbit,usik itu ini..handwash kena lah ada sentiasa kat garden sink.


Orange time!


I cooked early dinner..since uwan balik kampung kejap..lamalah dapur kita tak bau masak lomak hee..hee.



Since there are many tomatoes which they picked in Cameron i made my own recipe using fresh tomatoes..after i make the pasta sauce,i fried the corn beef..after bathing the pasta with sauce i put the fried corn beef on top..delicious!


If masak pasta memang tak problem makan..kalau rice kena lah keliling meja menyuapkan.



Well..it is time to say good night now..Ribbon&Heart has lavender scented tea candle to keep them warm and soothing at night..sleep tight ya hunny bunny:)


To my dear hb..thank you very much for everything..i have many childhood dreams&wishes inside me..you made it possible for me:):)

Salam mamatiamia...selamat menyambut tahun baru.

Comelnya rumah rabit tu.

Kak Zai betul2 kagum dan terharu cara mamatiamia menjaga uwam dengan penuh kasih sayang.

Maya Marisa said...

happy new year mamatiamia! wah, syiok nya dpt new rabbit house.

i love eggs so much. after adding the cornstarch, i would normally add 2 beaten eggs & pour it in a circular motion into the gravy. leave it for 2-3 mins, then start stirring it. bliss!

btw, ur cantonese noodle tu looks so yummy. i nak masak la for buka puasa nnti.

Mamasya said...

farrah said...

selaluuuuu tertunggu-tunggu entry baru kak zu, and selaluuuu lepas baca rasa happy because i can really feel the love in your family! rasa sedih jugak sebab my mum's unwell sebab terkena buatan orang and even though she's still there, but truth is she's not there anymore -- a completely different person she is now, sob sob. i wish to spend the rest of her life cherishing our lives together like you do, but she's so, distant now. oh tiba-tiba rasa sayu...

M.U.M.M.Y M.I.Q.H.A.E.L said...

Hi Cik Zu (is it alrite if I call u that?).

I salute you. You Homemaker to the max! Well, kalau bukan kita yg memeriahkan hidup kita, siapa lagi kan? And what better way to do it then with the people we care about. Berbaloi sangat..and the end of the day, we feel blessed and filled-up to the brim. And the best thing, we would do it all over again the next day.

umiyumi said...

Salam Zu.. comelnya rumah rabbit tu.. rabbit pun comel dan gebu jugak. bestnya ada petting zoo hehehe
