I remember, on my birthday this year… I received an email from my friend which includes the picture of this. My name doodled on the snow. Wow! Well, that was my nick among close friends. Hehe.
My friend Fara was sending these pictures all the way from Kashmir. Look at the beautiful place. So mesmerizing. Thank you Fara for doodling my name. At least, my name has traveled this far.
One year, and you are already fatter. Happy anniversary my best friend. 😘
Holiday is over.
Today I feel so Tuesday blues .
Let’s throwback some of the photos taken during the long honeymoon holiday. During eid (Aidiladha), mom cooked Lamb curry and Daging Masak Hitam. My MIL cooked Kuah Satay and Ketupat. I always loved my MIL ketupat.
Here what I served to my tummy at my huaband’s Mak Nek house. Those three were the Javanese cuisines. All were my favourite. 😋
I you were asking me, what had I contributed for the special day? Me and Amani were in charged in baking cheese tarts. 😂
So I only manage to have time to stitch this Katya Keyring Kit from Cross Stitcher magazine. It’s a Russian Doll design and the size are smaller than our palm.
Although the size is so small, perhaps you bet I could finish stitching it in one day. But no. It took me more than one week to stitch it completely. I even broke three needles while stitching it. 😂
Now moving to my nex wip. Can you guess what it is?
It’s been awhile since I’ve updated on my plants. Take a look at my Japanese Roses here. I’m glad I could see this lovely view everyday.
Since they blooming merrily, I plucked some of them and make it as flower bouquet using my old vintage mug.
And I just love taking photos besides them. 🌸🌸🌸
Last week, Amani had fever for two days. So I let her rest at home instead of going to school. When I came home from work, she showed to me the ‘new tooth’ at the back of her baby teeth. I was so panicked when I saw the overlapping teeth. 😱 (Panick mommy mode).
I asked my cousin whom is a dentist, what should I do with Amani’s teeth. There were two options, she told me. One, to make the baby tooth loose manually (using our finger) or two, go to the dental clinic to remove it.
Of course I would choose the latter. Instead of one, the dentist removed two teeth. He told me there will be another tooth to be removed because there is another ‘preggy gum’ at the back of the front tooth.
Sigh… Poor my baby. Always with her teeth problem. (Not a big problem, though. Only me the one here is so panick. haha) Remember when she was still one year old, I caught on her juggling and bleeding gum? When I brought her to see the dentist (The same doctor. hehe), the doctor told me it was only teething. Haha!
Perhaps, she will become a dentist in future. Just like how she adores her aunt’s profession. Hehe.
Looks like I have a scrapbooking addict junior. This is what I found in her scrap book.
She even contributed her scrap booking art inside my scrap book. More cutie stuff…
From my scrap book:
Hate will get you every time.
Don’t wait me till the finish line.”
I am a bracelet lover. I don’t know how many bracelets do I have. Whenever I saw fancy bracelets, I would buy at least one. Here is the latest I bought from Bespoken Handmade.
It’s a customized name on a pendant bracelet. You can choose your own favourite colour and design. Well, of course I chose mint green beads. I’m so in love with this. Suprisingly, the seller lived just near to my house. She just drop in my bracelet into the mailbox. Hehe. Hopefully I can meet her in person someday.
Spotted on a booth selling bead bracelets in Viva City during fasting month. One bundle cost RM24. So I bought two bundles and gave some to my mom. Hehe.
My favourite from the bundles. Those colour… 💚
That day when I went back from baking shop during fasting month, I spotted on the accesories booth in Plaza Merdeka. Tada, bought three bracelets! One for my mom. She is a bracelet lover too. Here is my favourite side of the bracelet, the rose charm. 🌹
Another bracelet that I bought is this one. Emerald green with crown charms. I just love it.
Since I love wearing bracelets, I also contribute in Cotton On foundation campaign “Let’s wrist band together” The design is so simple yet attractive.
Isn’t it so obvious that my new favourite colour is green. 💚
I always love the herbs on top of laksa and spaghetti. Therefore I decided to plant my own herbs this year. Started with Corriander.
After a few weeks the leaves started to change like corriander. 😂 Yeah, don’t laugh. I was worried in the beginning, why does my corriander leaves looks like those. Then my mom told me they will change. Lol!
Also loves Daun Kesom on top of Penang Laksa. This is the second time I tried to plant this herbs. The first died dried on the spot. The second time also almost died. So I quickly transfered it into a bigger pot with more sunlight. I had to check on the soil and keep it damp everyday. And now, voila! They are ready to harvest.
Remember my mint plants before? Well they didn’t survived. I had to buy the new baby and learned the lesson. Never abandoned them. This plant need sunlight and a shady place at the same time. 🍀
Planting edible plants or herbs had taught me to be more patient and giving extra care to nurture them. Unlike the cactus, they are more independent.
