Happy mode:) I sent S.O.S to my niece to come and help me with few settings at my Mac, she came and resolved the problem! Thank You Kak Ikin.
Euwww we got new additions to the family;) A boy and a girl- They are both gorgeous I tell you:) Welcome Lauren and Tim we hope you love our home.
I baked double choc cookies ( ala Famous Amos) for the girls on Friday night- but i tell you it was quite difficult to figure out whether it's already cook because it was too black..he he.If you asked me about the recipe,sorry this time i just used ready mixed from one of the bakery shop at Sunway Giza. I just add butter and choc chips to it, the result was good, i would say 80% of what you get from FA. To those asking about my moist choc cake from the old entry - i used recipe from "The Joy of Baking':)
Saturday we had pink night:)
We went Ikea and the girls got this for our home, I am not into this type of light but they love it:) Furthermore it was just RM39.90.
Today i cooked Chicken Rice for lunch- the little people plus the papa like it:) Uwan pun suka jugak:)
And i threw anything pink and orange into a bowl for dessert.
A lil bit rajin i baked Macaroni&cheese for tea- as usual the girls can't wait for it to cook:)
Extra cheezy macaroni- the girls had it with ketchup while i ate it with the brown gravy.
Evening Kak Ikin the IT expert came and resolved my problem..yeayyy.
As a big thank you to Kak Ikin i cooked all her favourite dishes- bukan susah pun she loves simple kampung lauk.
Gulai udang with nangka.
Her number 1 favourite my sardine goreng kering with cilipadi.
Goreng ikan masin with bendi,bawang garing dan cilipadi.
While waiting for uwan to come down we semabng2 first- actually sembang2 non stop- so nice talking to a niece actually much nicer if it can be followed with golek2 on the bed after that:)
Presenting Tim and Lauren- names given by Tia Mia, i asked why sound so 'human' the name? They said they like it..suka hati lah.Hopefully panjang umur these two, they are really cute and friendly:)
My small storage project at the back is finally finished..pfuhhhhh si Alvin buat kerja this tiny berbulan-bulan tak habis.I think after nearly 2 months baru lah siap. That is the storage place, I can keep many things inside and it helps to maintain the place neat..sebab boleh dump all things in the storage.
Now that we have space the limited place can accommodate two benches- people would wonder why i put bench at laundry area- well when i was small i love to sit at the place where my emak buat kerja:) I think my kids share the same habit- when i cook she likes to sit here- now they and uwan can sit here.
This is my back area- half is used for laundry activity while the other half for wet kitchen. Masa banyak membasuh tak lah kemas this area, semua tergantung-gantung. Most of the items here are from ikea,senang dan murah. Somebody asked last time tak ker bau baju bila masak? No, because i have open air/grilles at the top of the wall- good ventilation- and i added cooking fan fixed at the wall near the stove. But i hardly switch it on because the air/wind is more than enough. If oneday i have no more maid, i might opt for dryer- fast and simple, no hanging clothes- now i have one wall mounted clothes hanger and small foldable on the floor.
Walaupun kecik, this is one of the area i love most in the house.
To Farah who asked whether my niece is a model- he he no lah,happy lah dia kalau dengar tu:) She's an Ngo activist.
Quite active actually- she likes to talk whenever possible- unlike me:) She has her own Persatuan now called " Youth Champion Leader" - they help students at University through the Mentor and Men tee system- they help to build Think Tanker too.
Looking at all your nieces and nephews plus cucu sedara(s) you realize how time goes by... i miss those days- this niece of mine in the picture used to be very very ladylike, masa kecik suka ketawa tak berhenti- whenever i went to Johor Bahru (Jalan Yahya Awal) we will play masak2 under the tree in front of the house, we stopped playing there when we heard about the Indian lady's story who lived not far from my late brother's house - her husband saw one Achi at 1.30 at night picking jasmine from the big tree there.he said when he asked the Achi why she picked flower at night, she suddenly walked through the tree and disappeared - upon hearing that we slept so near to each other at night and held our pee through out the night:);) Now my ladylike niece is wearing uniform and looked brave and smart:)
One of the wonderful thing of having many nieces; they buy things you love:) This is my new scarf that my niece Nur bought from Seam Reap;)
Well i told one of friend last week, if some people dream of becoming a leader and popular my wish lately is just to wake up to a wonderful family,spend sometimes in the kitchen cooking and baking and maybe 1/3 of the day in my garden planting flowers and some veges:) As at now i still have to fight jam to go to office but never stop thanking Allah Swt for all the opportunity given:) Alhamdulillah.
