Salam:) Terimakasih lagi pada kawan2 jauh dan dekat yang berkongsi hati dan kata2;) Thanks Artlover,cinnamonworld of colours berkongsi pengalaman,thanks Mazni:) your castle ghost story is very interesting! I have a few which i heard from Uwan,will share it here when i have time;) may be i share one at the end of this entry,wink wink;) Uwan and us had a good rest and weekend,hope all of you had a same one and to those extending their Salam ukhwah..Alhamdulillah,kami sambut di sini:);)
Yesterday my Fb has the above title post:) I said whoever can guess our activities going to be which will start with 'oucchh,ouchh hmmm hmm' will win 3 days 2 nights stay at Aminah Resort!Ha ha ada lah jugak yang meneka but didn't get all correct;) So the Ouch ouch was my heaven time at Thai Odysessy:) Tia and Mia had piano lesson yesterday,so i asked the papa to wait for them and i checked myself into TO.sakit kacau rendang masa raya and makan2 tak habis lagi.I chose aromatheraphy instead of Thai traditional massage as i couldn't stand kena lipat2 and pijak2.You can choose several aromatheraphy oil such as rose or lavender for relax,lemon and spice for toning etc.I asked for lemon and spice and it was heaven..60 mins is not enough must make appointment for 120 mins!The picit kepala was really nice;)I really recoomend lemon and spice..you can see the effect of body toning too:)Anyway tak lah rasa aman sangat masa massage takut Tia Mia dah habis class dan bising2 kat papa dia carik mama)
But after i finish my massage and rushed outside i saw the above scene at the Artclass next to TO;) He he thanks so much papa,they peacefully and happily doing sand art there;) kalau tahu mama sambung jadi 120 mins tau!
Wahh syok main pasir ye:)
As usual in the end papa had to finish for everybody:) I just let the bonding between the papa and the girls:)
We reached home at 4.30 after our lunch and trip to Macbook shop to fix my Mac.The girls fell asleep in the car, i put them in bed,after taking bath etc I went down to make Milo for uwan,while listening to uwan's kampung story,i potong sayur for uwan's dinner.As for Ash yang tanya how to have good feeling in everyday's life? because she feels down and bad lately;( i can't really give a complete answer to it as i pun ada ups and downs but i learn to appreciate things from day to day.The most difficult to control and to listen to us is our heart.Talk slowly to our heart,ask her to make peace with us and everybody,replace all the worries with postive vibes and love.If your heart is happy there will no place for unsatisfaction,when there is no unsatisfaction,small thing will make you happy.So try to do that Sis,start with being happy with smallest thing around you,you are precious,your life is precious,give the best to youself.The best doesn't mean the biggest,the most expansive,the most popular,the best is the thing that brings smile to your face;) My moment with uwan yesterday was precious,it brings smile to my face,no money needed,no big effort just sitting there potong my sayur while listening to her telling stories about people already passed away many many years ago in our kampung;);)
Since the girls didn't have opportunity to play outside our house for one whole day i decided to arrange dinner in our little garden.They girls asked for mushroom soup,garlic bread,fried chicken and fruit salad.
Minyak tanah dah tak ada, so i ganti letak lilin inside the pelita,it makes a nice candle holder:):)
While the girls had bread uwan ate nasi with sayur petola and sup daging.I dah rebus daging siap2 untuk masak kari kari daging dan nasi dagang for the next day's breakfast.I usually do that,kalau nak masak daging i rebus the night before supaya lembut so esok pagi tu cepat lah proses buat kari atau gulainya;)Opsss kita ada pressure cooker tapi phobia nak guna..he he;)
It was a good dinner,we took our time borak2 and ate slowly.Some people will have family dinner at fancy place during sunday night but with senior people and all we feel having dinner at home is the best;) That's the little reward for ourselves:)
I let the girls play for a little while in their cubby house before we went in to sleep.
Today; Sunday Morning is nasi Dagang Day;) I just want to share making a super fast nasi dagang if you dont have time to make double kukus.No need kukus just cook!It is my style,i just buat my cara yang i rasa senang asalkan sedap:);) Cara i,i guna beras dagang Faizah,i rendam semalaman,hiris bawang merah,putih,halia,sedikit halba,santan,susu segar,garam dan sedikt gula.
One of the reason we steam the rice is because we want the rice to be nice 'berderai-derai' and 'shiny'.So kalau kita tanak ajer nasi lemak or dagang dia tak lah berderai atau berkilat tu,jadi untuk dapat effect berkilat dan berderai adalah dengan menumis,so bila berminyak nasi pun cantik jugak.I tumis bawang putih,merah dan halia sampai wangi.
After that i put in the rice,coconut milk,fresh milk, a little halba, a pinch of salt and half spoon of sugar.The measurement for santan and milk should be the same as the measurement for cooking plain rice cuma lebih kan sikit ajer the liquid as beras dagang keras a bit.Make sure you masak dalam periuk tebal yang bagus macam periuk kuala pilah i;) The best periuk ni tak lekat,panas sekata etc.Then tanak lah macam biasa,balik a few times,dah kering kacau betul2,kecik api,tutup dan biar lah sampai kembang dan kering.
Hasil..tadaaaa..lagi cantik dan lembut dari di kukus..sangat nyum nyum:):)
I cooked kari daging Trengganu guna rempah kari cap rose yang Ezlin bagi:) Alhamdulillah Ezlin dah dua kali masak kari cap rose ni;) As for kari daging,i dah rebus daging tetel siap2 malam tadi with sebiji bawang besar dan halia.Untuk masak kari i tumis bawang merah dan putih dan halia,masukkan kari cap bunga rose yang dicampur beberapa sudu kari untuk masak daging biasa (campur dgn santan),dah wangi i masukkan daging dan biar berminyak,masuk santan sedikit,garam,gula,asam dan masak sampai pecah minyak.
I made some acar timun yang hanya guna gula,garam dan sedikit perahan asam limau sebab uwan dan the other half tak boleh cuka.
It was a delicious Nasi dagang,i was so happy with the result:) Uwan and the other half liked it very much:) and tips to yang baru berkahwin,walaupun mom's cooking is the best but try to have your own way of cooking surely your husband akan appreciate having the opportunity to try you way;);) I tanya MIL masak nasi dagang ni dulu but i improvised myself:);)
And it was so sedap makan nasi dagang banjir kuah kari di pagi hari yang sejuk..so Nadiah i give a skip to Subaidah roti canai banjir this morning ya;) Will try next time;);)
After menambah lemak we decided to go to Lake garden to burn it..so we just pack the fruits;):)
The girls had a wonderful time..main air was one of the itenaries;)
They dont need to burn any fats actually as they had coco crunch with milk only..yang dewasa ni nak kena burn tapi yang dewasa duduk2 ajer bawah pokok;);)
One of my precious shot today;)
Another favourite shot... I love you emak,very very much;);)
As my sister said " Emak,you are always beautiful in my eyes" and i added 'nasib baik ada peribahasa mana tumpah kuah kalau tak ke nasi";):) he he he,Again, I love you emak;):)
Bougainvilla from my little Olympus lense;) I always love water colour painting since i was small.
My third brother Pashik is very good at painting and drawing,one of his work hanged on the wall at his house,nice kan;)
Bye bye weekend..Monday is coming,hopefully we have a good week ahead:) InshAllah:)
Before i go just wanna share with all of you this picture:) The Dialogue behind it " Tia Mia make sure you hang your towel properly on the rack okay!" "Okay mama we will"!" :):) Cantiknya my anak2 hang towel:) Bye everybody;):)
